Use case

Declarative application dependencies

Define and share infrastructure resources easily


Infrastructure needs for an application evolve over time

Application needs evolve throughout their lifecycle and their infrastructure requirements may change during that time. Developers often have an understanding of what their applications need, such as databases, caches, among many other middleware and dependencies. Platform teams may not want to train or expose developers to the details of how these databases, caches, middleware and other application dependencies are provisioned.


Simply define application dependencies

HCP Waypoint provides add-ons which allow platform teams to define infrastructure resources using HashiCorp Terraform and make them available to application developers as dependencies. Application developers can easily and seamlessly use Add-ons to install these infrastructure dependencies into their Waypoint defined applications.
