SAN FRANCISCO, June 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HashiCorp®, the leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation software, today at HashiConf Europe announced the general availability of HashiCorp Terraform® 1.0. HashiCorp Terraform is the standard for multi-cloud provisioning and automation. This announcement also includes enhancements to HashiCorp Terraform Cloud, which offers provisioning automation as a service.
With this milestone release, Terraform provides its infrastructure as code approach with new guarantees for scalability, ecosystem interoperability, and stability. In addition, Terraform Cloud adds enhancements to the Terraform Cloud workflow, including the ability to publish curated modules to a private registry, enhancements to workspace management, and a preview of the ability to check with third-party tools related to a Terraform run.
Terraform is downloaded tens of millions of times each year, has been downloaded more than 100 million times since its inception, and is supported by a growing ecosystem of 100 technology partners, and more than 1,000 providers and 5,000 modules in the Terraform Registry that are designed to more easily manage diverse pieces of cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
“Terraform has emerged as the lingua franca for infrastructure automation, delivering a best-in-class experience for users,” said Armon Dadgar, co-founder and CTO, HashiCorp. “This milestone release includes major enhancements focused on many fronts, which is designed to deliver stability, scalability and interoperability guarantees to Terraform users. With Terraform 1.0, users can feel confident about standardizing on this release for years to come, while also knowing we will continue to add exciting new innovations.”
Today’s announcement includes major milestones and enhancements for Terraform focused on three core pillars: automation, workflow, and ecosystem.
- Terraform 1.0 — Since its initial release in 2014, there have been 15 major Terraform releases, which have included more than 1,500 contributors. Terraform 1.0 meets the high expectations that come with HashiCorp 1.0 releases: community confidence to build upon a stable API, ease of upgrades, and interoperability for all future 1.x releases. This release is now generally available.
- Public Registry to Private Registry Publisher Workflow — Terraform Cloud and Enterprise offer capabilities to compose, collaborate, and reuse infrastructure as code using modules and the public and private registry options. The public registry has more than 5,000 community modules, and Terraform Cloud now offers a native workflow to publish modules from the public registry directly into an organization’s private registry. This capability is now generally available.
- Workspace Management, Overview, and Insights — Standardization and inspection is a primary goal for IT operations teams as they oversee a self-service provisioning model in their organizations. With Terraform Cloud, users can more easily visualize workspaces, resources managed, outputs, and details of runs with the new Workspace Overview and enhanced run details. This capability is now generally available.
- Terraform Run Checks for third-party Integrations — Terraform Cloud now has the ability for partners to integrate into the Terraform workflow during a run and provide additional context to check against the Terraform plan. Today, Terraform Cloud has executed 1.6 million Sentinel policy checks. This capability is designed to deliver many more policy options for organizations using Terraform Cloud to enforce security, compliance, and cost management best practices. This capability will be available in public beta during summer 2021.
“Since its launch in 2014, Terraform has become a byword for infrastructure as code,” said James Governor, co-founder of RedMonk, “With its 1.0 release and new cloud managed offerings, it’s set to become more widely adopted by enterprises and startups alike.”
Terraform Customer Adoption
Organizations have standardized infrastructure provisioning and automation using Terraform. Today, Terraform Enterprise is used by more than 1,200 enterprises, and Terraform Cloud has more than 120,000 users that execute more than 30,000 runs per day. Terraform Cloud and Enterprise are used by more than 15% of the Fortune 500 and are deployed in 45 countries.
Organizations using Terraform for cloud infrastructure automation include 3M, AGL Energy, AXA Schweiz, Barclays, Booking.com, Comcast, Cruise, Decathlon, Deutsche Boerse Group, Ellie Mae, Equifax, FIS, George Washington University, GitHub, Grab Taxi, H&R Block, Humana, JPMC, KPMG, National Australia Bank, PayPal, Pinterest, Progressive, Roblox, Samsung, Seatgeek, Softbank, TMX Group, and hundreds more.
“Terraform Cloud helped us create a true self-service operation across our organization,” said Ben Carter, vice president, enterprise architecture, Red Ventures. “Modules that used to take us a week to set up internally can now be handled independently by teams in the different business units, which has improved our resource allocation, license management, and other cost factors that have cumulatively saved us tens of thousands of dollars per month.”
“Because of Terraform and Terraform Enterprise, our cloud operations team has time to focus on high level tasks like system architecture and governance. In my opinion, that’s the best thing about Terraform, it lets us focus on what matters — driving the business and supporting our community members,” said Joe Brinkman, engineering manager, cloud operations, Earnin. “With Terraform 1.0, HashiCorp is delivering stability and interoperability to provide us with an even better experience.”
