Program Overview

Terraform is a tool that has become more popular because of its simple syntax that allows easy modularity and works against multi-cloud. One important reason corporations consider Terraform is to manage their infrastructure as code.

With Terraform, many of your team’s resources — such as projects, IAM policies, networks, and Compute Engine instances — can be managed, versioned, and easily recreated for your organization or teams. The state that Terraform generates is saved to Google Cloud Storage for persistence.

You can start by getting this industry-approved training for your team, offered by Uptut. We will cover everything from the basics to advanced levels of this tool under the guidance of industry experts.
