Hi@akhtar,

Terraform is agnostic to the underlying cloud platform, it implements this with the provider model. Providers are pieces of software that act as an interface between the Cloud provider and the Terraform engine. There is a list of additional providers here - https://www.terraform.io/docs/providers/.
