Deploy Infra in the Cloud using Terraform
What you'll learn
- Automate infrastructure deployment to the cloud
- Create Terraform templates
- Working with the "Execution Plan"
- Sharing and locking the State file
- Deploy into dev/test and production
- DevOps CI/CD pipelines for Terraform
- GitOps with Atlantis
- Creating and deploying Web Apps, Databases, VMs, Storage, Kubernetes clusters
- Deploy to multiple cloud platforms using Modules
- Troubleshooting Terraform
- Applying Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
- Basic cloud services
Terraform is becoming the standard when it comes to deploying infrastructure into the cloud or on premise.
In this course you will learn how to create and deploy Terraform templates.
We will work with the different Terraform commands like init, plan, apply and destroy.
We'll explore terraform features like input and output parameters, the execution plan and the remote backend state.
We'll write templates for Web Apps, SQL Database, VMs, Storage, Kubernetes clusters and many more.
We'll create the DevOps CI/CD pipelines using Azure DevOps and Github Actions to deploy into multiple environments: dev, test and prod.
Then we'll implement GitOps for Terraform using Atlantis.
Along all these demonstrations you'll also learn the Best practices in terms of security, configuration and scalability.
I hope you are ready and excited for this journey!
