Hi, maybe you can help me and prove me wrong.

I want to provide end users with a unified API, while simplifying it as possible. I assume the use of a declarative language for deploying infrastructure with ManageIQ. Such infrastructure can be deployed through different cloud/infrastructure providers and using the service catalogs of MIQ I can provide users with such opportunity. In terraform I would like to be able to descripe the requests of the deployment of such infrastructure in a unified manner and use the paradigm of the idempotency of this tool.
