INTRODUCTION

INFRACODE

InfraCode is an open-source project, dedicated to creating Infrastructure as Code tools built on Terraform. We’re simplifying the lives of DevOps professionals by building tools that allow for maximum customizability. Through our blog and documentation, we provide information on Terraform best practices, as well as Terraform tutorials.

About This Guide

This guide is a comprehensive collection of all the steps involved in using the InfraRapid product, to make sure any end-user or company interested in building their Infrastructure as Code, may do so on AWS and Azure cloud platforms.

Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is the management of infrastructure in a descriptive model, where the same source code generates the same binary. An Infrastructure as Code model generates the same environment every time it is applied. We use IaC for stability with version control, reusability, and scalability, automated deployment, and orchestration.

Terraform

Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. Terraform can manage existing and popular service providers as well as custom in-house solutions. For more information on Terraform best practices, read our blog post here.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) & Microsoft Azure

Amazon Web Services and Azure are cloud platforms offering cloud-based products such as storage, analytics, networking, computation, IoT, and other such cloud facilities, with pay-as-you-go pricing.
