Terraform Enterprise: Cost Estimation for Cost Control and Clustering for Availability

If you’re a Terraform user, you may have heard of Cost Estimation and Clustering for Terraform Enterprise (Cost Estimation is also available for Terraform Cloud). We’re excited to provide both of these capabilities to the Terraform community.

In this webinar, Product Managers Glenn Gillen and Jordan Glasner will demonstrate use cases for Clustering (scaling to meet demand, better availability) and Cost Estimation (impact to cost control, automated oversight of resources).

Cost Estimation: Cost Estimation provides organizations insight into the cost implication of infrastructure changes before they’re applied. It includes integration with policy as code workflows via Sentinel to enable preventative cost-control policies.

Organizations that are using an infrastructure as code approach to manage their multi-cloud provisioning, compliance, and management requirements can find it challenging to understand the cost implications of a change before it is applied. Many have been relying on after-the-fact alerts from their cloud provider, or potentially waiting until the end of month bill to understand the cost impact.

Cost Estimation now enables teams who manage their self-service infrastructure to view an estimate of changes in monthly cost from their cloud provider before applying any change. In this webinar learn more about the Cost Estimation capability and workflow including:

  • How to enable Cost Estimation
  • Understanding the cost impact of changes
  • Escalation workflows for expensive changes
  • Applying strict cost controls and automated oversight

Clustering: Current versions of Terraform Enterprise run on a single Linux instance (with an optional redundant standby node). We're changing Terraform Enterprise to use a new cluster-based architecture to provide horizontal scaling and high availability.

Until recently, Terraform Enterprise followed the industry standard of a single instance appliance. This was acceptable at first, but as organizations expand their usage of Terraform Enterprise, it becomes their central provisioning platform across business units and requirements around performance and availability increase.

Join this webinar to learn more about how the new Clustering functionality enables organizations to easily install and manage a scalable cluster that can meet their performance and availability requirements. Clustering supports installations of Terraform Enterprise in AWS, Azure, and GCP.
