Quick Reminder, the objective of this guide is to design a secure infrastructure for a 3tier architecture and use terraform (infrastructure as code) to spin it all up on AWS. Check through the first part and second part of this tutorial to get a better background of what I am trying to achieve.

Also, feel free to check out the source code via Github Repo at the end of every part of the tutorial
The objective of this part 3 is to set up a terraform backend.
There is a good explanation of what it is here in the documentation https://www.terraform.io/docs/backends/index.html
What we want to be doing-especially in a team is to store our state file remotely, sensitive information is kept off disk. We will use S3 for state storage. You can use other services in fact Hashicorp has its own backend. Some people store state in git repos. However, I prefer to use S3.
We will use dynamodb for state lock. so dynamodb creates a lockID for each operation initiated on your terraform meaning when you make changes or do any work on your tf, it gets locked so no one else would be able to access it until you are done.
Navigate into the env-staging folder like the image below(this is assuming you are following my folder structure from part 2)
DevOps automation tools help increase your application development agility and speed up delivery for software changes.
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.
