Terraform is a tool created by HashiCorp for building and managing infrastructure as code. Compared to platform spcific infrastructure as code tools such as AWS Cloudformation, Terraform provides a single syntax to manage infrastructure in multiple cloud providers such as AWS, GCP, Azure and Ali cloud. Terraform generates an execution plan describing what it will do to reach the desired state, and then executes it to build the described infrastructure. As the configuration changes, Terraform is able to determine what has been changed and creates execution plans which can be applied accordingly.
The infrastructure Terraform can manage includes low-level components such as compute instances, storage, and networking, as well as high-level components such as DNS entries, SaaS features, etc.
Manual provisioning of large scale Jitsi Meet infrastructure is hard
Jitsi Meet is the most popular self-hosted, open-source, and scalable video conferencing system. It includes all the video conferencing features such as meeting recording, Telephone dial-in, break-out rooms, chat ect. Deploying and managing multi region, multi-shard, auto scaling Jitsi infrastructure manually, to cater thousands of concurrents users in cloud be painful and inefficient. It could take months to understand, test, monitor and optimize the deployment.
