Going Multi-Account With Terraform on AWS
May 15, 2020
See best practices for managing separate dev, test, and prod accounts on AWS within a Terraform workflow.
Speaker: Cobus Bernard
Using a single account for a development, test, and production workloads gets complicated when you start rolling out anything other than a "hello world" example. By deploying each stage to its own AWS account, you separate the resources and access them, reducing the chance of accidentally breaking things.
What You'll Learn
In this session, Cobus Bernard will show you how to split your infrastructure between the different accounts and easily deploy your infrastructure to each account using AWS IAM Roles and the AWS Terraform provider with variables. He will also show how to easily set up a main account for your users and build pipelines using Terraform.
