Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Resource Manager is a managed service that automates deployment and operations for all Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resources. Unlike infrastructure-as-code (IaC) offerings from other clouds, the service is based on open source Terraform software—a popular industry standard that allows DevOps engineers to develop and deploy their infrastructure anywhere.
Explore how HashiCorp and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) look at the cloud. Learn more about our solutions across infrastructure, security, networking, and application delivery.
Navigate step-by-step tutorials on how to build, change, and destroy a virtual cloud network and subnet on OCI using Terraform.
Improve the productivity of DevOps teams with open source-based Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC).
Engineers can codify their desired infrastructure in open source-based Terraform configuration files and manage their entire fleet from a centralized dashboard.
Infrstructure as code and Resource Manager deploy repeatable infrastructure configurations with a consistent processes. Fidelity between environments and automated provisioning improves developer productivity, while rollback to a previous version keeps service levels high.
Developers can use resource discovery to scan their compartment and create Terraform configuration and state files, introducing automation to manage cloud resources. With this feature, they can also duplicate existing configurations easily without having to learn Terraform.
Resource Manager provides additional capabilities over the Terraform provider, including collaboration features, state locking, and automatic storage of state information in persistent storage. Integration with OCI platform features, such as tagging and IAM, keep your team focused and secure.
Resource Manager allows engineers to share and manage infrastructure configurations and state files across multiple teams. The service further facilitates collaboration with support for state locking, a feature that allows only a single job to run on a given stack at any given time.
Using solutions based on best practices, new users can get started quickly without learning the HashiCorp Configuration Language (HCL). Sample solutions from Resource Manager and Cloud Marketplace include Oracle Autonomous Database, storage, and networking.
Avoid context switching by using OCI’s in-console Code Editor to edit and apply Resource Manager configurations. Code Editor comes with Git integration, automatic versioning, personalization, built-in integration with OCI services, and more.
Resource Manager helps keep stacks up to date by fetching the latest providers for new and updated stacks from the Terraform Registry. For older stacks created before Terraform Registry sourcing, third-party providers, specific versions, and private providers can be configured.
Resource Manager integrates with Identity and Access Management (IAM) so that developers can define granular permissions for infrastructure operations.
The drift detection feature allows cloud administrators to detect deviations in the current infrastructure configuration from the desired configuration. Drift detection enables administrators to identify infrastructure changes that don’t comply with their organization’s policies.
Resource Manager supports all services from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Customers can easily integrate Resource Manager with Github, GitLab, and Bitbucket. By serving as a configuration source provider, code repositories track all code changes, iterations, and approvals for your infrastructure as code.
Resource Manager is integrated with Oracle Identity and Access Management (IAM), ensuring tenacy and compartment policies also apply to infrastructure changes and operations.
Customers can store Terraform code alongside application code in existing source code management solutions, such as GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, or OCI DevOps code repository. Developers to collaborate and automatically track all infrastructure-as-code changes and approvals with the same tools and processes used for their application code.
With private endpoints, resource manager can configure resources in private OCI compartments, on-premises resources connected to your OCI tenancy, or access Terraform configurations in private Github servers.
