Course Description

Get practical Terraform training and learn Terraform configurations, providers, and backends and learn how to orchestrate and provision containers in an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environment.

Course objectives

Cloud orchestration with Terraform aims to equip learners with practical skills in using Terraform for comprehensive infrastructure management and application deployment in a real cloud environment. After completing our cloud training course, and hands-on labs, you will be able to:

  • understand fundamental concepts that are important in a Terraform context, such as configurations, variables, providers, and backends.
  • use Terraform to interact with an OpenStack IaaS environment, and create, modify, and delete resources in a reproducible, configuration-driven fashion.
  • use OpenStack Swift as a shared-state repository for Terraform (using a Terraform backend), and work on Terraform configurations collaboratively in a group.
  • use Terraform’s OpenStack provider to interact with OpenStack Magnum, and deploy and manage a Kubernetes cluster from Terraform.
  • use Terraform’s Kubernetes provider to, in turn, interact with this Kubernetes cluster, and manage application deployments from Terraform, via the Kubernetes API.
