Falconcloud Terraform Provider

Automate cloud service resources management using the verified Falconcloud Terraform Provider.

Simplify cloud infrastructure management

Specify the proper state of your cloud project
and let Terraform do the rest.

Simple configuration

Terraform uses the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) management. Due to this approach, you only need to define the infrastructure parameters in a configuration file and call it in the command line.

Significant time savings

Terraform works in the frame of declarative transaction management, so you don’t have to monitor all possible transit states of the infrastructure. It’s enough to define the necessary recourse level.

Smart tracking

One of the outstanding features of Terraform is that it can be used with the version control system. If the result is below your expectations, you can always restore one of the previous states.
