Terraform is an open-source infrastructure-as-a-code tool that provides a consistent workflow to manage hundreds of cloud services. More companies are turning to infrastructure automation tools like Terraform: automation software is predicted to replace 69% of a manager's workload by 2024, according to Gartner.

Extensible providers allow Terraform to manage a broad range of resources, including IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and hardware services. Bill Gurling and Peter Milanese from Rubrik built the Rubrik Terraform provider, and they will show the Reg's Tim Phillips what they achieved. They will also share the challenges they encountered and how they overcame them, helping you to build a provider against your API.
