I recently deployed my running infra(aws) with terraform which contains all the basic things like rds, ec2 ,vpc , k8, etc. and found some facts :

  1. Its simple and easy to define resources.
  2. Sometimes you may get confused over 3rd party module and basic terraform resources. I personally suggest going for terraform official modules.
  3. terraform is not that mature and in heavy development. You may face some weird errors. it takes me 6 attempts to complete the basics of the whole infra, 1 attempt = creating and destroying whole infra.
  4. YES ,terraform is multi-cloud friendly but remember point 3.
  5. there is lot of help available on internet and slack networks.
  6. you need some credits to burn for practicing terraform on big cloud like aws.
