This hands-on lab is part of the AWS Marketplace DevOps Workshop Series. In this lab, you will gain experience using HashiCorp Terraform Cloud to deploy infrastructure as code in AWS. By completing this lab you will learn how to leverage HashiCorp Terraform Cloud for easier deployments of your applications and infrastructure in AWS.
Infrastructure as code (IaC) tools allow you to manage infrastructure with configuration files rather than through a graphical user interface. IaC allows you to build, change, and manage your infrastructure in a safe, consistent, and repeatable way by defining resource configurations that you can version, reuse, and share.

HashiCorp Terraform Cloud is available in AWS Marketplace. AWS Marketplace is a digital software catalog that makes it easy to find, try, buy, deploy, and manage software that runs on AWS. AWS Marketplace has a broad and deep selection of ISV solutions that can help you build your ideal DevOps toolchain in the cloud.
