DevOps trends 2022-23 - automate everything with intelligence
Information technologies have passed more than one big transformation and a lot of small ones during the time of their never-ending development. The software development process is constantly upgrading and changing. The appearance of microservices architecture, the independence of projects from one cloud provider or its distribution among several clouds, and the emergence of serverless applications and databases keep the process of transformation going. The development process is dynamic and changeable and it requires monitoring, analysis, forecasting, data processing, and, of course, automation of repetitive processes and tasks.
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.
