Announcing Appsmith Terraform Modules - Infrastructure As Code

We are delighted to officially announce the first version of our Terraform modules for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This exciting development streamlines Appsmith's deployment process, making it more accessible and efficient for architects and DevOps teams.

What is Terraform? 

Terraform is an open-source infrastructure as code (IaC) tool created by HashiCorp. It allows users to define and provision cloud infrastructure resources using a simple, declarative language. With Terraform, you can manage your entire cloud infrastructure across multiple cloud providers, including virtual machines, storage, networking, and more.

Why is Terraform Important for Appsmith Deployments? 

Deploying Appsmith traditionally involved manually provisioning the necessary infrastructure resources, such as containers, filesystems, and databases. This process can be time-consuming, error-prone, and difficult to replicate across different environments or teams.

These modules provide a standardized and automated way to provision the required infrastructure resources for Appsmith deployments on AWS and GCP. With just a single command, you can create the entire infrastructure stack needed to run Appsmith in a repeatable and consistent manner.

If Appsmith was incredibly developer-focused by proving source code integration and CI/CD, now, treating infrastructure as code enables better collaboration, documentation, and maintenance of your Appsmith deployments, making it perfect for all types of the software development lifecycle. 

Getting Started with Terraform Modules for Appsmith

The Terraform modules for Appsmith are available on the official Appsmith GitHub repository. The provider folder contains detailed documentation for each cloud provider. 

Whether you're an architect, DevOps engineer, or part of an operations team, these modules will streamline your Appsmith deployment process, enabling you to focus on building and delivering valuable internal tools for your organization.
