In Vault 1.0 we open sourced the auto-unseal feature which previously required Vault Enterprise Pro. Now you can opt-in to automatic unsealing via your trusted cloud provider: AliCloud KMS, Amazon KMS, Azure Key Vault, and Google Cloud KMS.
This guide demonstrates an example of using Terraform to provision a Vault node which is configured to auto-unseal using a GCP Cloud KMS encryption key.
