Terraform is an Infrastructure Code which is used to automate many Infrastructure tasks.
We can use Terraform to build; destroy resources in various cloud providers, such as in Azure and AWS in our scenario.
Terraform providers are certified vendors which provides API to access there platform, so that terraform code we create can do it job.
We can use the provide template and keep it under a project directory, and run the terraform init command from command line which will then reads the provider file and install the provider.
Example code:
terraform {
required_providers {
azurerm = {
source = “hashicorp/azurerm”
version = “3.75.0”
}
aws = {
source = “hashicorp/aws”
version = “5.20.0”
}
}
}

provider “azurerm” {
# Configuration options
}

provider “aws” {
# Configuration options
}

1. Allow users to automate infrastructure provisioning using reusable, shareable, human-readable configuration files
2. multi cloud deployment, microservices infra, managing diverse cloud resoruces, monitoring tools, self-service cluster, policy compliance, kubernetes,
3. A plugin that enable interaction with API
4. terraform {
required_providers {
azurerm = {
source = “hashicorp/azurerm”
version = “3.75.0”
}
aws = {
source = “hashicorp/aws”
version = “5.20.0”
}
}
}

provider “azurerm” {
# Configuration options
}

provider “aws” {
# Configuration options
}

What is Terraform and Why do we need it?Terraform is an IAS code tool where we can write code in Go language for create, delete and update the cloud and onprem resources. We can reuse the code and deploy resources multiple times.
Advantages:

Code reusable / AutomationUsing same code deploy multiple resourcessave time2. What are the Top 10 Use cases of Terraform?

Automate Azure cloud resourcesEx: Resource group, Storage account, AAD groups, VM’s, Web applications, DB resources

Automate CI/CD pipelines for continuous deploymentAutomate AWS resourcesAutomate K8S resources Ex: Create namespace, Automate K8S pipelines for continuous deployment3.What is the Terraform providers?

Terraform provider is plugin where it will interact with cloud or onprem providers API

1. Terraform making it easier to define, provision, and maintain resources across various cloud providers and environments.

2. 
-Provisioning Cloud Resources
-Infrastructure Automation
– Multi-Cloud Management
-Scalability and Elasticity
– Network Infrastructure

3. a plugin that enables interaction with an API. This includes Cloud providers and Software-as-a-service providers. The providers are specified in the Terraform configuration code. 

4. How to download Terraform Providers? Example Code?

terraform init

terraform {
 required_providers {
  azurerm = {
   source = “hashicorp/azurerm”
   version = “3.75.0”
  }
aws = {
   source = “hashicorp/aws”
   version = “5.20.0”
  }
 }
}

provider “azurerm” {
