HashiCorp and Microsoft to Extend Multi-Year Collaboration

By Ken Briodagh August 17, 2017

According to a recent announcement, HashiCorp, a cloud infrastructure automation provider, has joined in a multi-year collaboration with Microsoft to deepen support for the provisioning of Microsoft Azure cloud services with its HashiCorp Terraform product. HashiCorp Terraform is used to build, change, and version cloud and on-premises infrastructure.

"A key element of our mission is to enable organizations to provision, secure, connect, and run applications on the infrastructure of their choice," said David McJannet, CEO, HashiCorp. "As an ever-larger number of Global 2000 organizations adopt cloud infrastructure, Microsoft Azure is seeing tremendous growth. Through this collaboration, our Terraform customers can confidently utilize their provisioning tool of choice on the world-class Azure infrastructure."

With this collaboration, Microsoft and HashiCorp have committed to broaden the number of Azure services that can be provisioned with Terraform, allowing Terraform users to adopt a familiar workflow across their Azure and on-premises environments. The partnership reportedly will focus on the enhancement of the existing Terraform Provider for Azure as well as joint go-to-market efforts.

"It is critically important that we help our customers with their cloud adoption efforts, and providing the tools they will need to be successful is vital," said Corey Sanders, head of product for Azure Compute, Microsoft Corp. "For our mutual customers, the commitment between HashiCorp Terraform and Microsoft to deliver deeper support for Microsoft Azure will help to accelerate the adoption of Azure as a core element of their hybrid cloud architecture."
