Scaling Terraform at ThousandEyes

Tuesday, March 21, 2023 - 1:50 pm2:35 pm

Ricard Bejarano, Cisco Systems Inc.


After years of using Terraform to manage our global infrastructure, we ran into a number of problems: code duplication, drift between environments, hacky solutions to Terraform's shortcomings...

We present to you a new way of scaling Terraform that removes code duplication and boilerplate, eliminates drift, and adds many of Terraform's missing features that we now can't live without.
