Automate image builds with Packer

Create identical images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.

Images as code

Packer standardizes and automates the process of building system and container images.

  • Multi-cloud image workflow

    Create one workflow for images across multiple clouds and private infrastructure.

  • Extend Packer with plugins

    Plugins extend Packer’s functionality without modifying Packer's core by adding new builders, provisioners, post-processors, and data sources.
