Terraform - Automate and Secure Cloud Applications with Palo Alto Networks Next-Gen Firewall

About Terraform

Terraform is a powerful open source tool that is used to build and deploy infrastructure safely and efficiently. The advantage of Terraform is that it is cloud platform agnostic (unlike AWS CFT’s or Azure ARM templates), provides for the definition of infrastructure as code, and produces immutable infrastructure deployments. The Palo Alto Networks Terraform automation project offers Terraform templates to assist in deploying agile infrastructures based on the Palo Alto Networks next generation firewalls in the cloud.

Note: This is a community supported project. Please do not contact the Palo Alto Networks support team, as they will only direct you here for assistance. We encourage you to post your topics and questions in the discussion forums. Thank you!
