Kurt Bachelder
VP Cloud Services, Sierra-Cedar

Scalr allows Sierra-Cedar to focus on one of our core businesses: deploying infrastructure-as-code at scale for our clients using Terraform. By migrating our Terraform code base to Scalr and taking advantage of Scalr’s many features for managing Terraform pipelines and workflows, we were able to chop two years’ worth or work from our development backlog.

Director of Platform Engineering, Gannett/USA Today

Scalr allowed us to roll out true self-service provisioning of cloud infrastructure while maintaining some guardrails around policy and access privileges.  We went from one team gatekeeping the approval process, to 40 teams being able to self-manage their own needs.

Scalr's layered account/environment/workspace structure is great for cloud consulting companies like us with many customers. We have now visibility to all environments and we can easily configure access to developers in mixed teams.

Terraform Visual Plan

Extend the core Terraform workflow (“Write, Plan, Apply”)

Scalr is a remote operations backend for Terraform. It executes Terraform operations and stores state, in Scalr itself allowing for easy collaboration across your organization. Easily onboard an existing GitOps or native Terraform CLI based workflows into Scalr with little to no modification to your actual code.

Govern Terraform deployments using OPA instead of Sentinel

Open Policy Agent is a unified toolset and framework for policy across the cloud native stack. It is free and open source. Use OPA to enforce policies in Terraform, microservices, Kubernetes, CI/CD pipelines, API gateways, … and avoid having to learn new policy languages for each tool.

Keep your Terraform projects DRY

Objects, configurations and policies are shared across multiple organizational units to reduce management overhead.
