Use case

Integrate with Terraform

Create multi-cloud golden image pipelines with HCP Packer and Terraform Cloud.

Challenge

Image management needs to move at the speed of deployment

Terraform enables teams to dynamically provision multi-cloud self-service infrastructure. But how do your teams keep track of and update images used within these provisioning pipelines? How do you know that all image artifacts provisioned are secure, compliant, and up-to-date?

Solution

Bridge the gap between image factories and image deployments

Use Terraform to launch completely provisioned and configured machine instances with Packer images in seconds. By provisioning instances from stable images installed and configured by Packer, you can ensure buggy software does not get deployed. With the HCP provider for Terraform, the Packer data source allows teams to codify images in Terraform configuration files rather than hard-coding them.
