Setting up IBM Software with Terraform

Automation is key when developing and deploying software. Community is key to get support, to find samples and more. This is why I like Terraform which is a great tool to automate infrastructure on any cloud and there is a huge community.

Infrastructure as Code

While developers have used source control systems for a long time, more and more DevOps engineers use the same mechanism to deploy and manage infrastructures. The main advantage of handling infrastructure as code is that with a declarative approach changes can be easier tracked and human errors can be reduced. Over the last years Terraform has gained popularity and became an established tool to set up infrastructure.
