Hashicorp Packer and Terraform

Modified: 19 Apr 2018 15:48 UTC

Hashicorp's Packer is a tool for creating and managing customized Triton infrastructure or HVM images which you can easily deploy into multiple instances. These images can be deployed independently with triton CLI or by using Terraform.

Hashicorp's Terraform is a powerful tool to create, manage, and version reproducible infrastructure, including compute resources and upstack services. From the Terraform.io website:

Terraform allows you to effortlessly combine high-level system providers with your own or with each other. Launch a server from one cloud provider, add a DNS entry with its IP with a different provider. Built-in dependency resolution means things happen in the right order.
