Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is a repeatable, integrated process that bridges infrastructure into an automation chain. You could say IaC is an assembly line for technology delivery. In fact, good technology “manufacturing” processes are core to how a business needs to operate.
However, IaC does more than help you understand and control your IT environment. IaC also enables you to adapt your infrastructure automation chain as technology changes. It helps you create abstraction boundaries to make choices in the technologies and vendors that you use. In short, IaC provides the ability to rapidly change, repair, or adapt your technology automation chains.
Once an organization adopts IaC, new opportunities are created for the entire business to see technology as a commodity. Therefore, RackN sees IaC as an vital technology that is transforming businesses.
Proven IaC Integrations and Best Practices
IaC is central to the design of Digital Rebar. However it’s important to understand that IaC is a family of design principles, not just a technology. It encapsulates a business perspective about the outcomes of your IT choices. Because of this, IaC provides an understanding of your company’s entire value pipeline.
We designed Digital Rebar around reusable and stackable modules that treat your infrastructure automation as code. We can help you build an IaC practice that will improve operational consistency.
