Terraform: Up & Running: Writing Infrastructure as Code 2nd Edition
Terraform has become a key player in the DevOps world for defining, launching, and managing infrastructure as code (IAC) across a variety of cloud and virtualization platforms, including AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, and many more. Expanded and thoroughly updated, this hands-on second edition shows you the fastest way to get up and running with Terraform 0.12.
