Cloudify Provides DevOps Engineers a Free Terraform UI Experience, Enabling Seamless, Automated Import and Management of Unlimited Terraform Modules
Cloudify’s seamless integration with Terraform enables teams to automate, deploy, manage and scale multiple Terraform modules for free, with option to extend Terraform environments to Ansible, Kubernetes and other DevOps tools.
Cloudify, innovator in cloud infrastructure automation, today announced the release of a free Terraform UI experience that enables DevOps professionals to seamlessly import unlimited Terraform modules to Cloudify without writing blueprints or glue code. This advancement enables DevOps teams to turn their Terraform modules into self-service environments and scale up their services to the organization through Cloudify’s Environment as a Service approach.
Within Cloudify, Terraform becomes a more powerful tool:
- Terraform work is streamlined for maximum productivity: Users can manage multiple concurrent Terraform versions and deploy multiple development, testing or production environments with different secrets and capabilities.
- Everything is on one platform: Users can control all Terraform models and versions with a central management console. Centralize remote execution and processes, connect teams, bridge silos, avoid drift, and maintain one source of truth across your organization. Use Cloudify automation to empower rapid prototyping and code testing.
- Expand automation beyond Terraform to other DevOps tools: Users can integrate Terraform and interoperate with all environments and infrastructure orchestration tools, such as Ansible, Kubernetes and more.
- Continuous updating (Day 2): Users can apply patches, change topologies, add security features, make configuration changes or add resources to any environment.
“The new Terraform UI experience is a huge step forward on Cloudify’s path to become the ‘uber orchestrator’ every Terraform enterprise can rely on,” said Nati Shalom, CTO and founder of Cloudify. “Terraform is one of the most valuable tools used by developers today to provision infrastructure—it’s downloaded tens of millions of times each year—and now Cloudify has made Terraform easier to use, easier to manage across deployments and platforms, and easier to integrate with other CI/CD and ITSM tools and processes. With Cloudify, DevOps teams can use Terraform to its full potential to achieve greater velocity, fewer errors, and radically reduced deployment time.”

With the launch of the Terraform UI experience, Cloudify now automatically generates the wrapper required for each Terraform template—no blueprints or glue code required—thereby providing users with seamless orchestration and consistent management of multiple Terraform modules on the Cloudify infrastructure automation platform. Cloudify users can import existing automation modules and scripts into Cloudify and automatically convert them into environments, which can then be managed using the Cloudify console or by exporting them to ServiceNow.
Cloudify with Terraform UI Experience Available At No Cost
Cloudify and its Terraform UI experience are available for download at no cost and with no expiration date. With this free-forever offering, which is unique in the marketplace today, a Terraform team can build unlimited Terraform environments together, manage secrets, execute concurrent deployments, store states remotely, and monitor deployments, users and versions. Thus, teams have at their disposal a no-cost way to transform Terraform modules into an environment-as-a-service ecosystem, complete with a customized service catalog and ready for integration with existing APIs, CI/CD pipelines, and ITSM processes.
“By our rough estimates, there are more than 400,000 Terraform teams worldwide who are searching for ways to not only collaborate better within their team but also provide better internal service to their ‘customers’ within the organization,” said Ishay Yaari, chief revenue officer at Cloudify. “By offering these teams a free-forever, self-hosted version of Cloudify with the Terraform UI experience, we’re offering the global DevOps community something no one else is offering for free, and we hope to thereby raise awareness of Cloudify’s unique and game-changing approach.”
Cloudify also offers a free-for-30-days hosted solution for DevOps teams that want to explore Cloudify’s full-featured environment-as-a-service offering and the new Terraform UI experience. With this offer, teams can integrate Terraform with all technologies (including Kubernetes and VMs) and all tools (including Ansible, Kubernetes, ServiceNow and more).
In addition, longer-term, enterprise-grade packages of Cloudify featuring the new Terraform UI experience are also available. These options include integration with all tools and technologies, high availability, and professional support for up to 150 environments.
