Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.

Terraform

Terraform is a great tool for building virtual infrastructures in clouds like Amazon and Google. If you are building a heterogenous infrastructure spanning multiple vendors, I don't know of any other single tool that can do that. Even in the case where you're just building AWS infrastructure, I prefer the HCL syntax of Terraform, and I dislike getting roped into using some of the Amazon tools.

  • Easy integration with other bug tracking or tasking tools like JIRA.
  • File comparison and history is possible.
  • Project creation and setup is easy.

  • Configuration as Code in a modular reusable manner.
  • The plan apply life cycle is the best, it gives structure to what can sometimes be a scary process of modifying your infrastructure - even after it has aged or hasn't been touched in years.
  • Integrating with many outside services and providers keeps us from having to hack things together.
  • Integration with Hashicorp's Vault for secret management and temporary credentials makes giving out access a breeze.

Cons

  • The tool allows duplicate file name, if both are present in different directories. This creates confusion if multiple people are working on the same file. It should at least produce a warning.

  • Product is still maturing and there are some design limitation
  • Refactoring infrastructure code can sometimes become troublesome and unnecessarily require re-creating resources (such as when renaming resources)
  • Collaboration requires proper training or could result in dangerous outcome, engineers may easily overwrite remote state file or step on each other's toes. Collaboration process needs some improvement.

Alternatives Considered

Terraform shares the methodology of creating configuration files for your infrastructure with tools like CloudFormation. However, Terraform is cloud-agnostic unlike CloudFormation which is AWS specific. Terraform can be used to maintain AWS and OpenStack clusters simultaneously. You can use the same syntax instead of running non-interoperable tools for each of them.Terraform also empowers you to test/dry-run your changes before actually applying by running "terraform plan", so you can apply with confidence.

  • Quick turnaround time for spinning new infrastructure
  • We now have readable and documentable infrastructure which can be version controlled
  • Hooking up Terraform with CI/CD tools like Jenkins has enabled us to build a pipeline for continuous testing and delivery
