Description

Terraform in Action shows you how to automate and scale infrastructure programmatically using the Terraform toolkit.

Summary

In Terraform in Action you will learn:

    Cloud architecture with Terraform
    Terraform module sharing and the private module registry
    Terraform security in a multitenant environment
    Strategies for performing blue/green deployments
    Refactoring for code maintenance and reusability
    Running Terraform at scale
    Creating your own Terraform provider
    Using Terraform as a continuous development/continuous delivery platform

Terraform in Action introduces the infrastructure-as-code (IaC) model that lets you instantaneously create new components and respond efficiently to changes in demand. You’ll use the Terraform automation tool to design and manage servers that can be provisioned, shared, changed, tested, and deployed with a single command.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the technology

Provision, deploy, scale, and clone your entire stack to the cloud at the touch of a button. In Terraform, you create a collection of simple declarative scripts that define and manage application infrastructure. This powerful infrastructure-as-code approach automates key tasks like versioning and testing for everything from low-level networking to cloud services.

About the book

Terraform in Action shows you how to automate and scale infrastructure programmatically using the Terraform toolkit. Using practical, relevant examples, you’ll use Terraform to provision a Kubernetes cluster, deploy a multiplayer game, and configure other hands-on projects. As you progress to advanced techniques like zero-downtime deployments, you’ll discover how to think in Terraform rather than just copying and pasting scripts.
