New Business Tier to Accelerate Cloud Adoption Journey for Enterprises and SMBs
HashiCorp®, the leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation software, today announced expanded capabilities of HashiCorp Terraform® Cloud with a new Business tier offering, which expands its cloud provisioning automation capabilities to include enterprise features for advanced security, compliance and governance, the ability to execute multiple runs concurrently, and flexible support options.
With the Business tier of Terraform Cloud, organizations are able to reduce operational burdens and time spent installing and managing infrastructure, reduce risk by relying on a secure, compliant, and reliable platform, and increase developer velocity with integrated workflows for the tools developers are already using.
HashiCorp has seen growing demand for Terraform Cloud from organizations that want to consume infrastructure as a managed service. Terraform Cloud has added more than 5,000 new users per month since its initial release in 2019, with more than \\\\\\\\\\\\\500,000 runs (provisioning of infrastructure) executed monthly. As a result of heightened demands on multi-cloud infrastructure, adoption of Terraform Cloud within Global 2000 enterprises has increased, most notably across financial services, manufacturing, and retail.
“Terraform Cloud is quickly becoming a core infrastructure platform as organizations ranging from SMBs to the Global 2000 are looking to standardize and automate infrastructure in order to accelerate their cloud adoption,” said Armon Dadgar, co-founder and CTO of HashiCorp. “With the new Terraform Cloud Business tier offering, enterprises and SMBs benefit from increased productivity and lower overhead by enabling developers to focus on building applications that deliver business value rather than managing infrastructure.”
The new Terraform Cloud Business tier includes:
● Enterprise features: Single sign-on (SSO) integrated with Okta, audit logging integrated with Splunk, and private networking with fixed IPs and self-hosted agents to interact with other management planes across physical environments and private networks.
● Job concurrency: The ability to scale multiple concurrent jobs on Terraform to keep up with demand from end users creating, updating, and deleting infrastructure.
● Support: SLAs and support options that fit organizational needs.
