HashiCorp Releases Terraform Enterprise Module Registry
March 08, 2018

HashiCorp released the HashiCorp Terraform Enterprise Module Registry, a service catalog that provides a self-service workflow to provision any infrastructure.

This service catalog allows IT operators to codify, collaborate, and publish modular templates for provisioning cloud infrastructure that can be used by developers or other operators across large organizations. Organizations using the Terraform Enterprise Module Registry can have IT operators serve as experienced “producers,” who create the infrastructure templates, or as “consumers,” who can easily provision infrastructure following best practices by using pre-built modules.

Terraform is broadly used among the Global 2000 to address the challenge of infrastructure provisioning as organizations adopt cloud and deal with heterogeneity and scale. Terraform Enterprise focuses on addressing challenges to scale provisioning practices across an organization while still maintaining the necessary guardrails for compliance, security, and operational excellence.

In2017, HashiCorp introduced the Terraform Module Registry, an open service catalog for users to publish and use community modules. Since its release, the Terraform Module Registry has gained significant traction with the open source community and partners. Nearly 80 different providers have modules available and some of those modules have been downloaded tens of thousands of times. The introduction of the producer and consumer model for infrastructure has made infrastructure provisioning more accessible, and the Terraform Enterprise Module Registry will enable that same model for enterprise organizations globally.

“We see more and more organizations moving workloads to run on cloud infrastructure. Operators must figure out how to provision cloud infrastructure while also efficiently delivering self-service infrastructure for developers,” said Armon Dadgar, founder and co-CTO of HashiCorp. “Terraform Enterprise enables a team of operators to collaborate on infrastructure. The combination of Terraform’s key capabilities -- Workspace management, GUI-based collaboration workflows, and the new Terraform Enterprise Module Registry -- enable teams to codify, validate, provision, and publish modular infrastructure for any cloud.”

The Terraform Enterprise Module Registry enables customers to:

- Codify modules with version-control system integration: This enables operators to directly publish modules from the repositories in their Version Control Systems (VCS), including BitBucket Server, GitHub, and GitHub Enterprise.

- Publish modules to the organization’s registry: This allows a team of operators to individually codify modules, tag them to identify relevant attributes, version, and publish in a centralized location.

- Discover modules using GUI-based catalog of services: The modern and responsive GUI provides search capability for infrastructure other operators and developers to easily find published modules— this can be for a specific infrastructure provider, type, etc.

- Combine modules using graphical configuration designer: Developers can use the graphical configuration designer to combine and connect modules together to build custom Terraform configurations without having to understand the intricacies of the code.
