Thinking of building a Terraform provider? Here’s one Rubrik made earlier

Learn how to make infrastructure-as-code work for you

Webinar Over-stretched ops managers are banking on automation and infrastructure as code tools like Terraform to ease their workloads.

But there’s still a learning curve to be negotiated. And while it’s good to get hands on, sometimes it’s also good to sit back and hear how someone else worked out the nuts and bolts, particularly when it comes to the issue of Terraform providers, the plugins which actually allow Terraform to manage external resources.

Which is exactly what you can do by tuning into our upcoming webinar, the bluntly titled Building a Terraform Provider, on December 7, at 0900 PT (1200 ET, 1700 GMT.)

Hosting as a service will provided by Tim Phillips, who will be joined by Rubrik’s Bill Gurling and Peter Milanese.

They will deliver a Terraform provider 101, and explain how they built Rubrik’s own Terraform provider, which allows organisations to integrate Rubrik’s cloud data management technology into your own automated infrastructure-as-code setup. They’ll explain precisely what benefits this delivers when it comes to your own automation efforts.

They’ll also talk you through the challenges they faced in building the Rubrik provider, and how to avoid repeating them when you decide to build a provider against your own APIs.

Your workload is only going to get bigger and more complicated in the future, and automation tools like Terraform are key to getting this back under control. But getting up to speed on Terraform providers is easy. Just head here, register, and you’re in. No need to form a queue.
