Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) has become fundamental to many businesses in their cloud journey. As the name implies, IaC provides the ability to define your infrastructure – typically cloud infrastructure – as code.
Enables the customers with Continuous Compliance to ensure that the enterprise meets the continuously changing IT regulatory standards and requirements.
Empowers the enterprises to build and scale effectively in cloud-native environments without having to worry about infrastructure setup and management across multiple cloud platforms too.
Enables organizations to get enhanced visibility over their data utilization and associated costs that helps them in improving their strategies and work models that ultimately increase their business value.

Since the IaC model represents all the resources in code, it lets you see what is working and what isn’t and accordingly change the plans. Moreover, automation enables your developers to concentrate on priority tasks rather than manual grunt work, which helps control payroll costs and scale your employees’ salaries to fit their workloads.
IaC enables deploying cloud architectures in multiple stages to bring efficiency to the software development lifecycle. While developers can create their own sandbox environments for development, QAs can access a production copy for testing. Moreover, it is possible to perform user acceptance testing and security testing in the same environment and deploy infrastructure in a single step.
Provisioning all your infrastructure by hand is risky. It requires manual work that is error-prone. It may require a single person to do it. That person could leave the company, taking all that knowledge with them. Infrastructure as code minimizes both of these risks. IaC is the game-changer that minimizes manual intervention with the help of automation. By representing infrastructure as reproducible blocks of code, we are far less error-prone. Infrastructure as code lives in a source code repository. Its history and changes are visible to everyone on the team.
Infrastructure deployment is the final stage of the cloud migration process, involving configuration and setup. Both these processes require standardization to eliminate human error, accelerate development, and reduce resource wastage. If done manually, you can expect at least one instance of error, responsible for building inconsistencies and differences in the configuration. Also, executing these processes rapidly is important to avoid sudden setbacks and unwanted downtime.
The power of Terraform and Kubernetes manifests alongside virtualized cloud environments that provide additional instances to work in no time. Infrastructure as a Code in DevOps leads to higher scalability.
This is one of the most significant benefits. We can create parametrizable artifacts that we can reuse anywhere and repeat at any time the same stuff. For example, developers can create their own sandbox environments for development, QAs can access a production copy for testing.
IaC tools with incredible flexibility, support the most prominent cloud platforms. Also offers community-supported providers for a wide variety of platforms.
Platform specific IaC that is designed exactly for provisioning it's own resources to their own platform.
Configuration management tools install and manage software on a machine that already exists. It allows it allows existing IaC tooling to focus on their strengths: bootstrapping and initializing resources
Evaluating your current workload is essential when choosing a cloud network type. Every type of workload requires different specifications in hybrid cloud services. Take an inward look at your usage and needs.
