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. But minimum knowledge of Terraform is required to fully take advantage of Brainboard.

In fact, Brainboard simplifies the complexity of Terraform and helps you configure cloud resources with a configuration menu. It will then write clean Terraform code for you, according to best practices.

πŸŽ’ We also help the community by providing free Terraform trainings, that you can find in our Youtube channel.

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.
