How to use Terraform with Oracle Linux and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Simon Hayler
Senior Technical Product Manager

Recently I blogged on an Oracle Linux Developer Community post using iSCSI with Oracle Linux. Today, with input from Christophe Pauliat from the EMEA Oracle Solutions Center I posted on the Oracle Linux Developer Community on how to use Terraform with Oracle Linux and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Infrastructure as a code is an interesting topic and works hand in hand with Oracle Linux including simple installation of the terraform and terraform-provider-oci binaries using the ol7_developer yum channel.

Infrastructure as a code is a process where data center computing can be provisioned using machine-readable definition files. Infrastructure as a code can replace traditional tools and techniques such as manual systems administration and interactive UI and command line. Terraform is open-source software that allows users to define complex data center infrastructure in a high-level configuration language used within a supported public cloud using API’s.
