By Kief Morris

This booklet explains how one can reap the benefits of applied sciences like cloud, virtualization, and configuration automation to regulate IT infrastructure utilizing instruments and practices from software program improvement. those applied sciences have decoupled infrastructure from the underlying undefined, turning it into facts and code. "Infrastructure as Code" has emerged along the DevOps circulate as a label for methods that merge innovations like resource keep watch over structures, try pushed improvement (TDD) and non-stop Integration (CI) with infrastructure administration. Virtualization and cloud make it effortless to swiftly extend the dimensions of infrastructure, however the behavior and practices we utilized in the prior with hardware-based infrastructure do not sustain. groups prove with countless numbers of servers, all a section diversified, and locate themselves not able to totally automate their infrastructure.

Those chapters provide more detail on specific patterns and practices for provisioning servers, building server tem‐ plates, and updating running servers. The next chapter will look at the bigger picture of the infrastructure, exploring the types of tools that are needed to run the infrastructure as a whole. info CHAPTER 3 Infrastructure orchestration services In the previous two chapters, we have discussed the capabilities that we need to auto‐ matically manage the basic elements of an infrastructure ((to come)), and those we need to provision and configure individual servers (Chapter 2).
