Ansible vs Terraform: What are the differences?
Every growing startup or tech organization wants to automate apps and IT infrastructure. Ansible is a simple way to do that. An open-source software provisioning, configuration management, and application-deployment tool comes with its own declarative language. Ansible is an automation tool that helps drive complexity away and accelerate DevOps initiatives. Backed by RedHat Terraform acts like an orchestrator, using Packer for automation. Terraform is more of an infrastructure provisioning tool. Terraform talks to VMWare, AWS, GCP, and deploys infrastructure. From the house of HashiCorp, Terraform allows the creation, management and improvement of infrastructure. An open source code drives APIs into declarative configuration files.
