We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"We save a lot of time with this solution.""The ARM template is very easy to work with, which is a big help to us.""One of the most valuable features is that it offers the ability to create a VPC, Virtual Private Cloud and VPN connectivity to the VPC can be automated without having to do it manually.""One of the most valuable features is that it offers the ability to create a VPC, Virtual Private Cloud and VPN connectivity to the VPC can be automated without having to do it manually.""I like the function that shows me a preview of what is happening in the infrastructure.""The most valuable feature is the support for different platforms like cloud, datacenters, VCS, databases, various storage types, and Kubernetes."

"It is a good choice for deployment that performs very well.""The most valuable feature is the graphical-based reports of software updates that have been successful, the ones that have failed, and a summary of where the failures are what security breaches may occur.""This solution helps us by automating the patching of our system.""This has made the management of our environment easier.""This solution has made life easy with respect to patching, compliance, and OSD.""The most valuable features are Remote Connect, SUP, Cloud functionality, Report, Query, and third-party patching.""The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging.""Patching is the main feature because SCCM is made to control the entire environment without manually interpreting. So it is good to use for patching."

Cons
"It should have a more object-oriented approach like different coding languages.""On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of seven; strictly because I was uncomfortable using the ARM template earlier. After another six months, I am sure I will give it a rating of 10, but at this point in time in my experience, I say seven, but not because of the tool itself.""I still struggle a bit when configuring VPNs when we have multiple rules. If we have five or six virtual private clouds and we have to give rights between those multiple VPCs, we can have big problems. I think it was a learning curve and then we improved it.""If you are copying something from a well running machine to a remote machine, there are some issues with the current version, but it is acceptable.""They have added a feature that helps us to import existing resources to our workspace, but if they can help us to create the code for the import, as well, then it would be a great addition."

More HashiCorp Terraform Cons »

"The setup was complex and I faced a lot of problems initially because I was new to the solution.""I would like to see an agentless version of the solution.""This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections.""Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell.""This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems.""The cost of the product can be improved.""The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool.""The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. I think it would be good if some improvements were made."

More HashiCorp Terraform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing is good because they have various options, depending on what you are looking for.""Pricing is negotiable with Microsoft, depending upon which of their packages you choose.""When you compare this solution with other tools in the market you might actually find a lot of variation in the pricing and that's why people opt for the other tools rather than Microsoft tools."

Overview

HashiCorp was founded by Mitchell Hashimoto and Armon Dadgar in 2012 with the goal of revolutionizing datacenter management: application development, delivery, and maintenance.
The datacenter of today is very different than the datacenter of yesterday, and we think the datacenter of tomorrow is just around the corner. We're writing software to take you all the way from yesterday to today, and then safely to tomorrow and beyond.
Physical, virtual, containers. Private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. Windows, Linux, Mac. These are just some of the choices faced when architecting a datacenter of today. And the choice is not one or the other; instead, it is often a combination of many of these.
HashiCorp builds tools to ease these decisions by presenting solutions that span the gaps. Our tools manage both physical machines and virtual machines, Windows, and Linux, SaaS and IaaS, etc. And we're committed to supporting next-generation technologies, as well.
HashiCorp was founded and continues to be run by the primary authors of all our core technologies powering thousands of companies worldwide. We speak at conferences and write books related to application and infrastructure management.
All our foundational technologies are open source and developed openly, and have been since 2010.
The Tao of HashiCorp is the foundation that guides our vision, roadmap, and product design. As you evaluate using or contributing to HashiCorp's products, it may be valuable to understand the motivations and intentions for our work.
