Introducing Terraform at GumGum

At GumGum, we work completely with AWS and have more than 100+ services to build, automate, maintain, and secure.

We are used to automating most of our services using Ansible on AWS but the more services you need to manage, the harder it gets to automate everything.

Moreover, Ansible is mostly a configuration management tool, which means they are designed to install and manage software on existing servers. We could technically use Ansible to provision most of the resources we need, but we realized that Ansible does not perfectly fit as it's more a procedural style where you write code that specifies, step-by-step, how to achieve some desired end state compared to an orchestration tools where you write code that specifies your desired end state, and the IAC tool itself is responsible for figuring out how to achieve that state.
