TFE and Sentinel: Provisioning Policy for Data Sovereignty in the CloudInfrastructure as code with [HashiCorp Terraform](https://www.hashicorp.com/products/terraform) enables operators to automate provisioning at scale. This comes with risks, as every action can have larger effects. [Sentinel](https://www.hashicorp.com/sentinel) policy as code places guardrails to protect users from creating infrastructure changes that fall outside of business, security, and compliance policies. This blog will take a look at writing and enforcing a policy using [Terraform Enterprise](https://www.hashicorp.com/products/terraform) to restrict provisioning resources in certain availability zones to ensure data sovereignty.

Why Policy as Code?HashiCorp advocates for "infrastructure as code" approaches to managing infrastructure. We have [talked about it publicly](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZXngLn5UJk) and published about it in our [Tao of HashiCorp](https://www.hashicorp.com/tao-of-hashicorp). At HashiConf 2017, we [announced Sentinel](https://www.hashicorp.com/sentinel), a framework for "policy as code". The same coding practices that are applied to infrastructure can be very effective in enforcing and managing policies. Codifying policy removes the need for ticketing queues, without sacrificing enforcement.
