Infrastructure as Code (IaC) in Azure

By 9comments , , , Permalink 0

Infrastructure as code (IaC) is the process of managing and provisioning Azure resources through text definition files, rather than interactive configuration tools or the portal.

Both IaaS or PaaS associated configuration resources in a deployment are called “infrastructure” in this context, although they have nothing to do with actual infrastructure, It can use either scripts or declarative definitions, rather than manual processes, but the term is more often used to promote declarative approaches.

IaC is intended to reduce errors and the complexity out of manual configurations making deployments more efficient and productive, IaC is key on enabling DevOps best practices as automation and collaboration is one of the DevOps gravities.

Azure ARM Templates allows you to fulfill your IaC needs by providing the infrastructure automation capabilities and declarative definition.
