Manage your Edgio Platform Configuration with Terraform

May 18, 2021
Print Article

The Verizon Media, now Edgio, Platform is pleased to announce that we now provide support for Terraform. An open-source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool, Terraform is excellent for enabling our customers to build, change, and version infrastructure safely and efficiently.

Terraform allows you to provision infrastructure through software to achieve consistent, repeatable results. You can also describe infrastructure in configuration files and store configuration files with source control using a repository like GitHub. Some of the advantages of source control include the ability to track code changes and establish an archive of all code changes over time so you can revert and compare changes.

The benefits of using Terraform include:

  • The ability to use existing DevOps toolsets to completely configure and manage one or more CDN accounts

  • Providing improvements and enhancements from a large community of open source developers

  • Delivering repeatability when following IaC best practices

One of the best reasons to use Terraform is configuration management. The Edgio Platform Terraform provider enables you to manage users and account settings, your delivery configurations, including edge CNAME and origin configurations, and Rules Engine policies. Future releases will include support for managing your Route DNS and web application firewall configuration.
