Terraform is an infrastructure as code software by HashiCorp. It allows users to define a datacenter infrastructure in a high-level configuration language, from which it can create an execution plan to build the infrastructure such as OpenStack[3] or in a service provider such as AWS, IBM Cloud (formerly Bluemix), Google Cloud Platform, Linode[4][5], Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, or VMware vSphere[6][7][8][9][10]. Infrastructure is defined in a HCL Terraform syntax or JSON format.[11]

HashiCorp also supports a Terraform Registry launched in 2017 during HashiConf 2017 conferences.[12]
