HashiCorp Packer creates golden images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.
The HCP Packer registry aligns the workflows of image factories and image deployments, allowing operations and development teams to work together to create, manage, and consume images from a centralized source.
Track dependencies between parent and child images to streamline build and deployment processes and quickly identify out-of-date images.
Packer channels let you label image iterations to describe the quality and stability of the build. Channels give you control over the delivery of your images.
Machine images can become insecure — revoke an image iteration immediately or at a designated time during its lifecycle.

Create identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration. By codifying commonly used base images as golden images, they can be standardized, secured, and updated using automation.
Automate updates for base images and downstream builds. Track image metadata, including parent/child ancestry relationships, to identify out-of-date builds. Extend image management to provisioning workflows with Terraform integration. Identify the correct version of images for downstream consumers to use by assigning image iterations to custom channels.
Codify security hardening and compliance baselines to ensure golden images are consistent. Using channels in the Packer image registry, the approved version of every image is discoverable and vulnerable images can be revoked to prevent their use.
