Why is CloudFormation no longer popular?
So what are provisioning tools? Infrastructure as Code (IaC) offers developers and operations teams the facility to automate the processes to manage and provision the infrastructure required for their application’s technology stack. The configuration of the discrete hardware devices and operating systems that comprise the infrastructure can now be undertaken using code, replacing the traditional manual approach. This automation makes the Infrastructure provisioning process faster while reducing the probability of configuration errors, leading to cost and time savings.
