Google Cloud Deployment Manager vs Terraform: What are the differences?
Developers describe Google Cloud Deployment Manager as "Create and manage cloud resources with simple templates". Google Cloud Deployment Manager allows you to specify all the resources needed for your application in a declarative format using yaml. On the other hand, Terraform is detailed as "Describe your complete infrastructure as code and build resources across providers". With Terraform, you describe your complete infrastructure as code, even as it spans multiple service providers. Your servers may come from AWS, your DNS may come from CloudFlare, and your database may come from Heroku. Terraform will build all these resources across all these providers in parallel.
Google Cloud Deployment Manager and Terraform can be primarily classified as "Infrastructure Build" tools.
Terraform is an open source tool with 17.4K GitHub stars and 4.77K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Terraform's open source repository on GitHub.
