Get More from Your Terraform Infrastructure Auto-orchestrate and manage complete environments from your Terraform files.

Manage and govern your Terraform infrastructure centrally while empowering developers to deploy on-demand via self-service and CI/CD automation.

Finally, Simplified Control for Your Terraform Infrastructure

Discovery & Orchestration

Put an end to the frustrating manual work required to provision your environments. Torque discovers and ingests Terraform scripts and other IaC and containerized infrastructure directly from your asset repositories and orchestrates complete environments in minutes.

Self-Service & Auto-Deployment

Empower developers and other end users to access infrastructure when and where they need it. Create self-service access to pre-configured environments via Torque’s blueprint catalog, and automate deployment via integrations with the CI/CD or ITSM tools your teams use.

Custom Usage Policies

Prevent unauthorized infrastructure and configurations in your Terraform files. Set policy-based guardrails for maximum duration, approved cloud services and configurations, deployment options, and tags for all environments your teams deploy.

Drift Detection & Alerting

Keep all your Terraform configurations and deployed environments up to date with automated drift detection and alerting. Respond to changes in real time to mitigate risk and eliminate mismatches that cause deployed environments to fail.

Use Cases

Automate & Simplify Your Terraform Provisioning Processes

You don’t have to sacrifice velocity to govern your infrastructure.

The Challenge

DevOps engineers and other architects spend too much time manually provisioning the same infrastructure repeatedly.

This creates bottlenecks that delay access to the infrastructure your developers, testers, and IT admins need to do their jobs–leading to missed deadlines and the risk of shadow IT.

The Solution

Torque automatically discovers and imports Terraform scripts into repeatable blueprints for the complete application environments your teams need.

Self-service access with role-based permissions enables end users to launch environments on-demand or automate deployment within the CI/CD, ITSM, and other internal tools they already use.

The Challenge

DevOps and IT teams struggle to ensure that all Terraform scripts are configured to prevent unnecessary cloud costs.

This not only leads to awkward conversations when the finance department receives the cloud bill, but also damages ROI on your cloud investment.

The Solution

Torque applies usage policies and tags to all the cloud infrastructure your teams deploy, while role-based permissions restrict who can modify configurations.

This approach enforces cloud governance by automating teardown after a pre-set duration, prohibiting specific cloud services, and applying custom tags to automate end-to-end cost reporting based on the team, project, or application those cloud services support.

The Challenge

Identifying application drift and other changes to configurations is nearly impossible across a large volume of Terraform scripts.

This often results in a reactive approach to maintaining configurations and limits your teams to pushing fixes only after the changes have disrupted performance.

The Solution

Torque notifies your teams about application drift and other changes to your Terraform infrastructure, and shares details to help identify where the changes occurred.

Managing your environments through Torque ensures that all infrastructure your teams deploy is up-to-date and in line with your cloud experts’ requirements.

The Challenge

Script sprawl is inevitable as Terraform usage grows across large teams, making it difficult to standardize and maintain consistency.

This inevitably leads to misconfigurations or other vulnerabilities that admins only discover after an application fails or an environment breaks.

The Solution

With Torque, admins can set policies to prohibit users from deploying specific configurations or services, such as public AWS S3 buckets, certain instance types, or unauthorized cloud platforms or services.

These policies restrict users from launching unauthorized infrastructure and notifies admins when they attempt to violate them.

Frequently Asked Questions

It starts with your Git repository. Torque will connect to your GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket repository, identify all the files within them—including Terraform, CloudFormation, Helm Charts, and native Kubernetes manifests—and allow you to choose the assets to import. Once you connect an execution host to run commands against these assets—via your cloud service provider, Kubernetes cluster, or vCenter account—Torque will automatically orchestrate a ready-to-run YAML file for the complete environment consisting of the infrastructure assets you chose to import.

Absolutely not. Torque blueprints embrace and extend existing Terraform scripts. The Torque platform is designed to help our users seamlessly and safely access and rapidly deploy their existing Terraform scripts. Torque is unique for its ability to automatically identify and map multiple configuration types (Terraform, Helm, CloudFormation, Kubernetes, and vCenter) into a single repeatable blueprint.

Further, Torque ties Terraform-configured infrastructure elements to business context – who owns it, operates it, its purpose, the application and/or business that it enables, and what the infrastructure costs to operate.

Think of Quali’s Torque as a unified control plane for all your infrastructure assets.

The Torque platform was designed to enhance your existing workflows. That means automating the entire lifecycle of environments directly where–and when–they’re needed. Torque will automatically deploy the right environment at the onset of a new stage of the CI/CD pipeline, then shut that environment down after that stage is complete. Torque currently support deployment on infrastructure within Jenkins, Azure DevOps, and CircleCI.

Yes. With Torque, infrastructure teams can enforce security and compliance by configuring environment blueprints with secrets and cloud account credentials securely embedded (and invisible to the user) to conform to policies that mitigate business risk. Torque’s policy engine, powered by Open Policy Agent (OPA), can embed guidelines for user access, cost, usage, and governance into the infrastructure provisioning process.
