It's important to store your Terraform state file in a secure location to avoid losing it. If you lose the state file, you won't be able to manage the cluster with Terraform anymore. You can store the state file in a git repository, S3 bucket, or local folder. For more information on Terraform backends, please refer the FAQ below about saving terraform state in an external location.
