The complexities of a continuously expanding digital revolution create challenges for businesses both in multi-cloud environment management and assurance of deployment delivery. Through this evolving transformation, many enterprises need guidance in determining priorities and shaping virtualization strategies. The cloud-based service provides a simplified process for developing infrastructure and ensuring streamlined production.
When implemented properly, cloud automation decreases human error and can save an information technology team time and money.
One of the most common use cases for cloud automation is to deploy Infrastructure as Code (IAC). This approach to deploying applications allows developers or operations teams to automatically manage and provision the technology stack for an app through software, rather than using a manual process to configure discrete hardware devices and operating systems. When the infrastructure is composable, it also negates the need for IT administrators to be concerned with the physical location of infrastructure components for distributed apps.
In addition to helping with deployments, cloud automation can be used to help administrators manage workload. For example, an automated tool might be configured to monitor a deployed workload’s performance and scale resources up and down as needed.
To implement cloud automation, an information technology (IT) team needs to use orchestration and automation tools that run on top of their virtualized environment. Orchestration involves codifying the various steps and processes involved workload deployment and management, while automation involves invoking those steps without human intervention.
Together, cloud automation and orchestration provide more consistent and predicable workflows, something that’s especially important in hybrid environments.
