Posted on Posted in Azure, Deployment, devops

In this episode, Abel sits down again with April Edwards to talk about Terraform state files. Keeping track of what an environment should and does look like can be a challenge, particularly when it comes to scalability. State files are a way to solve that problem.

April walks through the creation of state files, their use in managing scalability, as well as the security of these state files, which is extremely important in a real production system!
