Controlling Cloud Costs in the Retail Sector with Terraform

As the retail industry continues to embrace cloud technology as part of their wider digital transformation effort, many organisations adopting cloud find that 20 - 40% of their cloud spend is on over-provisioned, unused, and orphaned infrastructure. This the result of an infinite volume of on-demand resources, provisioned frequently by many end-users, and across multi-cloud environments - causing unnecessary expenditure in an already price sensitive market.

Terraform provides cloud infrastructure automation with infrastructure as code for provisioning, compliance, and management of any cloud infrastructure. This allows organisations to codify their desired use of infrastructure in the form of modules and then enforce best practices for how that infrastructure is provisioned and de-provisioned through the use of policies. This, along with central tracking and auditability, provides a systematic approach for how your organisation can reduce spend when first adopting cloud and at any scale thereafter.


During this webinar we'll cover:

  • The challenges of modern cloud operations impacting the retail sector
  • The 3 patterns of infrastructure provisioning guardrails
  • How Terraform embeds infrastructure best practices
  • Cost control capabilities of HashiCorp Terraform Enterprise
