Managing HCS with Terraform Cloud


Recommended Posts

Recently, we announced the general availability of HashiCorp Consul Service (HCS) on Azure, our first fully-managed service for cloud networking automation. Customers can use HCS to discover and automate connections between services running in both Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters and Azure VMs without worrying about the operational burden of managing their own Consul deployment. HCS can be launched directly from the Azure Portal, but in this blog, we’re going to show you how to manage HCS using Terraform Cloud.

Why Use Terraform Cloud instead of the Azure Portal?

Terraform has become a de facto tool for many infrastructure workflows and Terraform Cloud has emerged as a powerful way for organizations to enable greater collaboration for their operators. While one of the major benefits of HCS is its integration within the Azure environment, we know that many customers have spent a lot of time and effort building out a robust Terraform workflow. We don’t want to make customers feel like their only options are to either change the way they are managing their environments or self-host a Consul deployment. Terraform Cloud can be used to manage both the deployment of HCS and services that are interacting with it. Additionally, Terraform Cloud enables multiple operators to interact with the HCS environment while layering on additional guardrails to ensure that changes are being applied in a consistent and compliant manner.
