Did you tried some tool like Ansible (I really love Ansible)? You could use to deploy your infrastructure across multiple cloud providers and multiple regions. I know you would need to write some code, but deploy will become clearer than Terraform with bash scripts.
I to enjoy Ansible; it does infra provisioning as well as software configuration management?
Yes, it does infra provisioning and software configuration.
Interesting. I will need to do some research into this. do you have any resources your find especially helpful?
This is something I found very useful to begin with on Ansible
Thanks for the info. A few of the infrastructure folks I spoke to personally seems to echo similar experiences. Of trying various different tools like terraform - and going back to Ansible.
Sure initial setup is much more work, but it works and scale well, and it doesn't feel like your fighting the tool.
Personally never dived too deeply into it, and will look into it more.
While I've not tried Terraform yet, Ansible is something I setup recently.
I agree there's initial hiccups but once wrapped up, these are few benefits:
Once you're done with it, you can also look to integrate it with Rundeck for more visibility via UI & more fine grained controls
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
