Introducing OpenTofu: The Linux Foundation's Open Source Alternative to Terraform

The Linux Foundation has announced the launch of OpenTofu, an open-source alternative to Terraform’s infrastructure as code provisioning tool. OpenTofu was created in response to Terraform’s recent license change, which raised concerns within the open-source community. OpenTofu is community-driven, impartial, layered, modular, and backward-compatible. It has received support from industry leaders and has formal pledges from over 140 organizations and 600 individuals. The Linux Foundation emphasizes the importance of open collaboration and innovation in the infrastructure as code field.

OpenTofu aims to be a reliable, accessible, and truly open-source solution.
