Terraform makes it extremely easy to deploy vm instances on multiple providers like CloudStack, OpenStack, AWS, Azure and more by describing your complete infrastructure as code. You describe you infrastructure in configuration files “*.tf” for a simple or complex applications or deployments. Terraform then takes that configuration and creates an execution plan so that you can see what it’s going to do before it does it. As the configuration changes, Terraform is able to determine what changed and create incremental execution plans which can be applied. And when you need to tear down the deployed services it’s as easy “terraform destroy”.

When I dissect that response here is what I think about the open source cloud platform question in the enterprise. I make these statements purely from my experience and by defining the “enterprise” as the internal organizations of a business.

The error is show below. “An error occurred while trying to retrieve a list of virtual switches” which doesn’t really mean much in helping you solve the problem.
Now I don’t think I have to say that this came from someone employed at a certain company that starts with an “S” and ends with an “E”. I have nothing against the company or this person that sent the email because I understand where that persons motives are.

After watching the keynote for WWDC today something came to mind. It was of a commercial but it took awhile for me to actually remember what it was about.
