HashiCorp has always focused on enabling a community of practitioners around the products, and around the world. We believe in an open approach built around the following tenets:
We want to enable practitioners to freely download the software, inspect source code, and make modifications to solve their problems.
We want to make the products easily extensible by partners and end users. We understand there is a broad universe of tools people use and enabling integrations with those is key.
Sharing our source code is key to creating transparency for our users, partners, and customers. We want to make it easy to understand how our products work and to assess them for security, performance, or other concerns.
We fundamentally believe that great software requires having a unified vision, and we’ve always taken a strong lead in the direction of our products.
Today, we have eight products in our portfolio for which the source code is broadly open and available: Packer, Vagrant, Terraform, Consul, Boundary, Vault, Nomad, and Waypoint. Many of these products also have enterprise offerings as well as managed service offerings, with both free and paid tiers.
We offer our products through a free, source-available license because we believe that enabling practitioners to innovate in infrastructure helps create broad ecosystems, and allows organizations to more easily solve integration problems.
Our investments in an open ecosystem are made possible by the thousands of companies who partner with us commercially. We aim to drive standardization to accelerate the benefit to practitioners, while our commercial products are designed to solve organizational challenges of managing infrastructure at scale. We are proud to count more than 450 million downloads of HashiCorp’s free community products during our 2023 fiscal year.
