Terraform Cloud updates plans with an enhanced Free tier and more flexibility

Terraform Cloud’s Free tier now offers new features — including SSO, policy as code, and cloud agents — while new paid offerings update scaling concurrency and more.

Today we are excited to introduce updates to our lineup of HashiCorp Terraform Cloud offerings that provide access to premium features for up to 500 resources in the Free tier, as well as new paid offerings for management capabilities, scaling concurrency, and enterprise support, as well as consistent billing metrics based on managed resources, across tiers.

These updates to our Terraform Cloud offerings are based on feedback from users and customers and are designed to:

  1. Provide premium security features, such as SSO and policy as code, on all tiers.
  2. Make it easy and frictionless for smaller teams and organizations to get started with their first use case. The updated Free tier covers up to 500 managed resources — accommodating more than 90% of the practitioners, small teams, and organizations using Terraform Cloud. It also includes unlimited users and applies, so organizations can onboard any team member to collaborate, provision, and manage their own resources, and users can make changes to their infrastructure as needed without incurring additional costs.
  3. Finally, the updated paid tiers provide easy upgrade paths for organizations as their usage scales and they have more advanced use cases and the need for enterprise support.

This table provides an overview of the updated Terraform Cloud offerings:

»New Free tier capabilities bolster security posture from the start

Terraform Cloud Free is great for small teams and organizations getting started with Terraform. Free includes everything needed to use Terraform in a team setting, including remote state, remote runs, private registry, secure variables, dynamic provider credentials, and additional security features for a robust security posture from the start. New features include:

  • SSO — Owners have more control to secure accessibility to an organization’s infrastructure, reducing risk through the enforcement of identity and access management (IAM) policies.
  • Policy as code with HashiCorp Sentinel and OPA — Create policies as code and enable advisory enforcement to view policy violations.
  • Run Tasks — Add checks from third-party products for improved security, code scanning, cost control, and regulatory compliance.
  • Terraform Cloud Agent — Execute runs and manage resources in isolated, private, or on-premises environments.

»Updated paid tiers with increased concurrency and support

Terraform Cloud Standard is great for organizations starting to use Terraform where team management, scalability, security, and support are critical. The Standard tier is available through monthly credit card billing or as part of an annual contract. Features include:

  • Team management to grant the right workspace permissions to allow members to start Terraform runs, create workspace variables, read and write state, and more.
  • Three concurrent runs to limit bottlenecks and contention for run time with parallel Terraform operations.
  • Flexible enterprise support so organizations can select the support type that works best for them.

Terraform Cloud Plus offers everything in the Standard tier along with additional capabilities to continuously manage infrastructure. Capabilities include:

  • No-code provisioning for self-service provisioning of desired infrastructure without having to write code.
  • Drift Detection for visibility into when your infrastructure configuration has changed from the intended configuration.
  • Continuous validation to continuously check infrastructure following provisioning to validate health and custom assertions.
  • Unlimited Sentinel and OPA policies and Run Tasks to ensure all infrastructure changes follow security, compliance, or operational policies.
  • Scaling concurrency and agents to support a team's ideal project and workspace arrangement, and prevent bottlenecks.
  • Flexible enterprise support so organizations can select the support type that works best for them, up to Enterprise 24x7.
