More about Terraform VPC in your DigitalOcean droplet ?


Terraform is basically a tool for building and managing infrastructure in an organized way. You can use it to manage DigitalOcean Droplets, Load Balancers, and even DNS entries, in addition to a large variety of services offered by other providers. Terraform uses a command-line interface and can run from your desktop or a remote server.

Terraform DigitalOcean VPC helps us manage our code easily. 

Here at Ibmi Media, we shall look into Terraform DigitalOcean VPC module.


More about Terraform VPC in your DigitalOcean droplet

Terraform handles code like an infrastructure. It helps us define cloud as well as on-premises resources in configuration files readable form. Also, Terraform allows us to manage the code infrastructure through its lifecycle with a smooth workflow. The well-organized infrastructure makes it possible for us to port code easily as well.

VPC can be described as virtual networks with resources that have the ability to communicate amongst themselves in full isolation via private IP addresses.

Terraform VPC modules are a combination of Terraform that contains automation tests and examples. Additionally, it assists us in creating and improving our infrastructure with minimal code rather than making us maintain the infrastructure code on our own.

Moreover, the digitlaocean_vpc module offers us a Terraform DigitalOcean VPC resource. For instance:

resource "digitalocean_vpc" "example1" {
  name     = "fixwebnode-project-network"
  region   = "nyc3"
  ip_range = "10.10.10.0/15"
}

Additionally, we can assign digitalocean_kubernetes_clusterdigitalocean_dropletdigitalocean_database_cluster, and digitalocean_load_balancer to a VPC via its id. For instance:

resource "fixwebnode_vpc" "example1" {
  name   = "fixwebnode-project-network"
  region = "nyc3"
}
resource "digitalocean_droplet" "example1" {
  name     = "example"
  size     = "s-1vcpu-1gb"
  image    = "ubuntu-20-04-x64"
  region   = "nyc3"
  vpc_uuid = digitalocean_vpc.example1.id
}

Furthermore, digitalocean_vpc supports these arguments:

name
region
description
ip_range

Additionally, the following attributes are exported as well:

id
urn
default
created_at
