Deprecation warning: Terraform Enterprise (Legacy) features of Atlas will no longer be actively developed or maintained and will be fully decommissioned on Thursday, May 31, 2018. Please see our Upgrading From Terraform Enterprise (Legacy) guide to migrate to the new Terraform Enterprise.
Terraform Enterprise stores the state of your managed infrastructure from the last time Terraform was run. The state is stored remotely, which works better in a team environment, allowing you to store, version and collaborate on state.
Remote state gives you more than just easier version control and safer storage. It also allows you to delegate the outputs to other teams. This allows your infrastructure to be more easily broken down into components that multiple teams can access.
