everything you have in the cloud
Standardize IaC, without the learning curve.
Designed specifically for cloud infrastructure
Copy a public template, import existing Terraform files, or start from scratch to build robust multi-cloud architectures the same way you would draw a design on a whiteboard.
Drag and drop cloud infrastructure resources, data resources, custom resources, and terraform modules from any cloud provider supported by Terraform.
Configure Terraform parameters intuitively from the Brainboard canvas and draw static components to guide finance, security, executive and other non-technical viewers of your cloud infrastructure architecture diagrams.
Save your architecture diagrams and the accompanying Terraform code as reusable templates for future cloud infrastructure projects.
Generate Terraform Code
Automatically generate valid Terraform code directly from the cloud architecture diagram with best practices built-in.

Visually Build CI/CD Pipelines
Click to add parallel and sequential actions to your pipeline and configure approval requirements to be scheduled and executed pre-deployment, during deployment, and post-deployment for cloud infrastructure.
Remote run the most reliable and popular pipeline actions like Infracost, Tfsec, OPA and more to gain valuable insights into cloud costs, security vulnerabilities and policy breaches for cloud infrastructure.
Securely deploy directly to cloud providers within Brainboard or use the visual CI/CD to validate the quality of Terraform code before pushing to Git for cloud infrastructure.
Eliminate cross-environment drift by promoting & synching cloud infrastructure.

"As an engineer myself, I wanted to empower engineers to focus on building cloud architectures right, with best practices and security by design, allowing anyone to understand the infrastructure. Brainboard is the solution for every cloud infrastructure."
CEO & Founder of Brainboard
Loved by industry leaders
"Brainboard is a revolutionary technology. It created a whole ecosystem to design and operate the cloud, taking infrastructure management to the next level."
"Very easy-to-use tool to design Azure architecture and generate Terraform scripts. I was a newbie in Terraform when I first started using Brainboard, and it was beneficial. It is also effortless to clone architectures, reuse parts/modules and also do reverse engineering."
Azure customer, Terraform newbie
"What a time-saver Brainboard is. All of my resources, modules, templates are right there in the library, ready to pull in error free the first time."
"The team shared their expertise and best practices with us, which made the process of building our infrastructure much smoother and efficient. We felt empowered and confident in our abilities to build something truly great with the help of the Brainboard team."
Senior Consultant at KPMG
"Fasten your belt and get ready to reach the clouds with ease, effectiveness, and elegance. Being able to organize, design and deploy architectures for all the applications that are built makes me save a lot of time. Brainboard solves for me the hassle can be to managing the environment and settings for cloud-based applications.”
Azure customer, Infrastructure Manager
“Brainboard allows us to quickly visualize our cloud platforms and assets, and even deploy multi-cloud architectures with one click. It's also helped us better manage our cloud infrastructure costs.”
“I can't find the words to describe how incredible, powerful, and practical Brainboard is for me as a DevOps Engineer.”
“Brainboard might've made the coolest tool of 2022 for me. Seriously it's phenomenal what it can do!”
Principal Cloud Architect
"Enterprise workloads need Brainboard."
"As a cloud architect, Brainboard has allowed me to give life to my designs and architecture choices, because going from a diagram to an operational architecture is just a few clicks."
Senior Cloud Architect
"Why write programming code when you can design application systems with Brainboard?"
"Welcome to the era of Terraform-as-Diagram! Brainboard is Terraform migration made easy and visual."

How do I generate the Terraform code for my cloud architecture?
The Terraform code is automatically generated for you cloud architecture as you design.
How Brainboard is better than any drawing application?
Brainboard is a one-stop solution for you and your team to Design, Deploy & Manage modern cloud infrastructure. You design your architecture, auto-generate your Terraform code, and deploy your infrastructure within Brainboard.
Do I need to be Terraform expert to use Brainboard?
No. You don't need to be a Terraform or IaC expert to use Brainboard.
In fact, Brainboard simplifies the complexity of Terraform and help you configure cloud resources with a configuration files menu. It will then write clean Terraform code according to best practices.
We also help the community by providing free Terraform trainings, or you can even book a 30min session with us to help on your use-cases.
For advanced Terraform users, Brainboard will just change your life. You'll design faster, test earlier and automate at scale.
What is the difference between Brainboard and vanilla Terraform?
Terraform is a powerful IaC tool that deploys the code you write.
Brainboard, on the other hand, is an end-to-end cloud management solution built on top of Terraform with a visual architecture designer, where the Terraform code is automatically generated. It also has a secure CI/CD engine, native Git integrations and more features to help you standardize and centralize your cloud.
Can I migrate my existing infrastructure into Brainboard?
You have the possibility to import your existing infrastructure and auto-generate the diagram.
We support importing any file that contains a valid Terraform code.There are 2 ways to do it:
- Provide the URL of the Git repo (Github, Gitlab, Bitbucket...)
- Upload one or multiple files
How can I collaborate with my colleagues?
There are 2 aspects in terms of collaboration:Build:
1. Brainboard supports real time editing of the same architecture by multiple users. All you need to do is to invite your colleagues and give them the right access.
2.Deploy: when you build your CI/CD pipeline within Brainboard, you have the possibility to request approvals from any team/person, which allows you to orchestrate the execution by involving all stakeholders.
Can I deploy my architecture with Brainboard?
Brainboard has an innovative CI/CD engine dedicated for the infrastructure, where you can execute all Terraform actions (Terraform plan, Terraform apply, Terraform destroy) within a secure sandbox and get the output in real time or build your deployment workflow and trigger it.
Which git providers does Brainboard support?
The following git providers are supported:
- Azure DevOps
If your git repository is not listed here, you can request it in our public roadmap.
