DEVOPS: IaC=> Infrastructure as Code

· devops

Is the process of managing and provisioning computer data centers through machine-readable definition files, rather than physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools. The IT infrastructure managed by this comprises both physical equipment such as bare-metal servers as well as virtual machines and associated configuration resources. The definitions may be in a version control system. It can use either scripts or declarative definitions, rather than manual processes, but the term is more often used to promote declarative approaches. 𝐖𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐩𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐚
