You’ve seen how to get started with Terraspace without a cloud provider at all. Next, you might be interested in a provider with on-prem capabilities.
From here, you can check out the Docs to learn more:
- Intro: Review Terraform intro features.
- Backend Config: Configure the backend, where to store the state file:
- Terraspace Cloud: Upgrade to Terraspace Cloud for extra features like Team Management, Permissions, History, a Web Dashboard, and CI/CD Integration.
- Deploy Multiple Stacks: Deploy all or segments of your infrastructure.
- Terrafile: Use modules from anywhere you want.
- State File Thoughts: General state file thoughts.

Dry You can keep your code DRY. Terraspace builds your Terraform project with common
config/terraformstructure that gets built each deploy. You can override the settings if needed, like for using existing backends. See: Existing Backends.
Generators Built-in generators to quickly create starter modules. Focus on code instead of boilerplate structure.
Multiple Environments Tfvars & Layering allow you to use the same code with different tfvars to create multiple environments. Terraspace conventionally loads tfvars from the
tfvarsfolder. Rich layering support allows you to build different environments like dev and prod with the same code. Examples are in Full Layering.
Deploy Multiple Stacks The ability to deploy multiple stacks with a single command. Terraspace calculates the dependency graph and deploys stacks in the right order. You can also target specific stacks and deploy subgraphs.
Secrets Support Terraspace has built-in secrets support for AWS Secrets Manager, AWS SSM Parameter Store, Azure Key Vault, Google Secrets Manager. Easily set variables from Cloud secrets providers.
Terrafile Terraspace makes it easy to use Terraform modules sourced from your own git repositories, other git repositories, or the Terraform Registry. The git repos can be private or public. This is an incredibly powerful feature of Terraspace because it opens up a world of modules for you to use. Use any module from anywhere.
Configurable CLI Configurable CLI Hooks and CLI Args allow you to adjust the underlying terraform command.
Testing A testing framework that allows you to create test harnesses, deploy real-resources, and have higher confidence that your code works.
Terraform Cloud and Terraform Enterprise Support TFC and TFE are both supported. Terraspace adds additional conveniences to make working with Terraform Cloud Workspaces easier.
Terraspace Cloud Terraspace Cloud adds additional features like Team and Permissions Management, Dashboard and History, and CI/CD Integration.
