Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC)

Infrastructure as Code is the process of provisioning and configuring an environment through code instead of manually setting up the required devices and systems. Once code parameters are defined, developers run scripts, and the IaC platform builds the cloud infrastructure automatically. Such automatic IT setups enable teams to quickly create the desired cloud setting to test and run their software. Infrastructure as Code allows developers to generate any infrastructure component they need, including networks, load balancers, databases, virtual machines, and connection types.
