Drift Detection for Terraform Cloud continuously checks infrastructure state to detect and notify operators of any changes, minimizing risk, downtime, and costs.
We are excited to announce Drift Detection for Terraform Cloud, now in public beta for HashiCorp Terraform Cloud Business. Drift Detection provides continuous checks against infrastructure state to detect and notify when there are changes.
This new feature continues to evolve the capabilities in HashiCorp Terraform to provide operators with continuous visibility into the state of their multi-cloud infrastructure. Drift Detection follows the announcements of Terraform 1.2 and Terraform Run Tasks, which are additional capabilities that increase efficiency while reducing risk related to security, compliance, and operational consistency. The new capabilities expand Terraform’s support for “Day 2” operations for cloud infrastructure.
As organizations migrate to the cloud, they need infrastructure automation to efficiently provision and manage their cloud resources. Typically, that consists of three distinct phases: Adopting and establishing a provisioning workflow, standardizing the workflow, and operating and optimizing at scale across multi-cloud environments as well as private datacenters. Infrastructure as code — along with proper guardrails — are essential to this process. Terraform helps organizations with infrastructure automation and provides capabilities across all three of these phases.
