We are pleased to announce two new providers now available for HashiCorp Terraform. This blog will give a more detailed description on the providers and helpful links that may provide additional insight. For more information on Terraform providers, please visit our docs page.

» PAN-OS Provider

Palo Alto Networks is a next-generation security company, leading a new era in cybersecurity by safely enabling applications and preventing cyber breaches for tens of thousands of organizations worldwide. Built with an innovative approach and differentiated cyberthreat prevention capabilities, their security platform is designed to deliver security superior to legacy or point products, safely enable daily business operations, and protect an organization's most valuable assets.

The PAN-OS provider enables operators to deploy a Palo Alto Networks firewall in a virtualized environment using Terraform. Organizations using a public cloud (i.e. AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud) can now automate the creation of VPCs or Resource Groups with a VM-Series firewall and apply VM-Series configurations. The Terraform provider can also be used to automate the configuration of a Palo Alto Networks hardware-based next generation firewall.

Palo Alto Networks has assembled a step by step guide on how to set up this configuration.

» Open Telekom Cloud Provider

Open Telekom Cloud is a public cloud IaaS offered by Deutsche Telekom for European markets, hosted in Germany. Open Telekom Cloud complies with ISO 27017 norms for data security and ISO 27018 norms for data protection that provide peace of mind for enterprises concerned about public cloud security. Users have the ability to integrate modules from OpenStack, an open source resource library for various cloud deployment and management tools. Open Telekom Cloud is desigend to enable organizations to adopt multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments more efficiently than private offerings.

The Open Telekom Cloud provider enables Terraform to create and manage infrastructure in Open Telekom Cloud. Organizations now have access to compute, storage, DNS, and many other resources critical to provisioning applications in both test & dev environments.
