Build, change, and destroy Amazon Web Services infrastructure.
Provisioning infrastructure through point-and-click GUIs or custom scripts is slow, error-prone, inefficient, and doesn't scale.
With HashiCorp Terraform, provisioning and security can be automated with declarative infrastructure and policy as code. Infrastructure and policies are codified, shared, versioned, and executed within a workflow that is consistent across all infrastructure.
The Terraform language is declarative, describing an intended goal rather than the steps to reach that goal.
The command line interface to Terraform is via the `terraform` command, which accepts a variety of subcommands.
Cloud Development Kit for Terraform (CDKTF) allows you to use familiar programming languages to define and provision infrastructure.
Encapsulate common configurations in re-usable modules. Modules help organize, standardize, and share approved configurations without duplicating code.
Use config-driven import to bring existing infrastructure resources under Terraform management.
Use the native testing framework to validate the functionality of modules. Define unit and integration test suites using HCL.
Automate application infrastructure deployment, scaling, and monitoring tools.
