How to reduce downtime in Terraform redeployments

Deploying changes to live Terraform infrastructure can cause extended application downtime while resources are being replaced. Here's how to reduce that downtime and increase the availability of managed resources.

How to get started with Terraform

Terraform is a simple yet powerful open-source infrastructure management tool developed by HashiCorp. It allows you to safely and predictably manage your infrastructure by codifying APIs into declarative configuration files.

Reducing Terraform deployment downtime

This video demonstrates the usage of a couple of Terraform features that can reduce the downtime or unavailability of Terraform managed resources. For this demonstration, we've built a simple Go HTTP server.

We package this server into a custom machine image using Packer and the UpCloud Packer plugin. This custom image is deployed onto an UpCloud server using Terraform.
