The terranetes controller manages the life-cycle of terraform resources defined and built inside Kubernetes. This allows teams running workloads inside the cluster to self-serve application dependencies and reuse the wealth of terraform modules already written.
There’s a number of open source controllers you could use that will run Terraform in Kubernetes. All of them deliver the developer outcome, however, none address the “consequences” of delivering that outcome in the first place; the risks, costs, security implications, the general lack of checks and balances. What sets the Terranetes controller apart is its opinion you first enable the platform team to deliver the outcome in a safe environment before it can be self-served by developers. Providing platform engineers with all the knobs, dials and levers to control and mitigate those risks is the key differentiator for Terranetes controller.
