Welcome to the Terraform with Azure playground, where you can start experimenting with automated infrastructure provisioning in minutes.
The best part? You don’t need to worry about setting up a local development environment. Our playground runs entirely in your browser, so you can start learning immediately, avoiding long setup times or configuration headaches.
Terraform is one of the most popular Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools. It helps you create and manage your infrastructure, like servers and databases, in a more automated and efficient way.
Instead of manually setting up your infrastructure, you can use Terraform to describe your infrastructure in the form of configuration files. These files are similar to a blueprint of your infrastructure and can be used to provision new infrastructure or update existing infrastructure.
Terraform interacts with resources on cloud infrastructure platforms (such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud) using Providers. Terraform Providers are plugins that handle all the logic of authenticating, making API requests, and dealing with timeouts and errors. Providers are written using the Go language and distributed as binaries on the Terraform registry.
The Terraform core (the engine that powers Terraform) communicates with the plugins via remote procedure calls (RPCs), and the plugins communicate with their corresponding cloud platforms via the network (via HTTP calls, for example).
Our playground comes with a command line where you can enter Terraform commands to interact with the sandbox Azure account.
You can use the playground for 1 hour. If required, you can extend the usage by 15 minutes by clicking on the Extend lab by 15m button, next to the timer icon.
