As organizations grow and their use of Terraform expands, they face several challenges in managing Terraform at scale. These include complexities in enforcing consistent policies across different teams, difficulties in maintaining visibility and control over the infrastructure, and the challenge of predicting and managing costs effectively. Moreover, there's the added complication of integrating Terraform with various cloud providers, version control systems, and communication tools, while also addressing infrastructure drift and ensuring that the actual state of the infrastructure aligns with the defined state.
Brainboard provides a robust solution for managing Terraform at scale, addressing these challenges comprehensively. It simplifies policy enforcement using its Policy Workbench that leverages Open Policy Agent (OPA) for access control, role-based access control (RBAC), and workflow management. For infrastructure visibility, Brainboard offers tools to visualize and filter resources, allowing a clear view of the organization's infrastructure and its evolution. Additionally, Brainboard integrates seamlessly with major cloud providers, version control systems, and communication tools, making it a versatile addition to existing processes. Its features for detecting and rectifying infrastructure drift ensure that the infrastructure remains in its desired state. Moreover, by integrating with Infracost, Brainboard provides detailed cost estimations and breakdowns, enabling better financial planning and control. This comprehensive approach ensures that organizations can scale their Terraform usage efficiently and effectively, maintaining control and visibility while minimizing disruption to existing workflows.
