Why Implement PacketFabric’s Terraform Provider?

Terraform is a HashiCorp open-source tool that enables you to predictably create, change, and efficiently improve your infrastructure by using code. You can easily define both cloud and on-prem resources in human-readable configuration files that you can version, reuse, and share.

You can use PacketFabric’s Terraform provider to access, manage, and deploy PacketFabric’s network resources with minimal effort and time from network engineering.

There are many benefits of using Terraform, including helping your organization do more with less and save time and money! Businesses can utilize PacketFabric Terraform provider and the thousands of existing providers to fit your organization’s infrastructure and reduce operations costs, TCO, and maintenance costs.
