How to Optimize Your Cloud in the Era of Infrastructure as Code
Infrastructure as Code (IaC and tools like HashiCorp Terraform, AWS CloudFormation, or Ansible can help you automate the infrastructure deployment process in a repeatable and consistent manner, driving speed, simplicity, and efficiency.
However, this level of granular automation in cloud provisioning poses serious challenges for managing and optimizing the cloud resources, such as uncontrollable micro-purchasing, performance risks and cloud cost sprawl. With Infrastructure as Code, you need to find a new way to manage and optimize your cloud infrastructure in a fully automated fashion.
