Packer and Terraform with Immutable Infrastructure

Terraform is red hot right now, and you probably know that it's an open-source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) solution.

OK, but what is Packer?

Well, Packer is an open source tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration. It's lightweight, runs on every major operating system, and is highly performant, creating machine images for multiple platforms in parallel.

In this CloudSkills Community Call replay, Luke Orellana shows you how to get started with Packer, Terraform, and Immutable Infrastructure.
