If you’ve got clients seeking a solution more local to them, or if you need to deliver in a different country for a customer, this is a game changer.
If you’re delivering software, IaC allows providers and SaaS companies to rapidly reduce their time to delivery. This is because you can now automate the deployment of your software’s infrastructure and easily add new clients. Plus, you can configure environments varying in size and build commercial models to suit.
With IaC templates, you can ensure your infrastructure is right – from the start. Without IaC templates, you’ll have to configure a whole environment each time – leaving yourself vulnerable to error.
IaC allows for better documenting of infrastructure for auditing and compliance purposes. Instead of logging into a console and detailing each inch of your estate, you can now make it available in JSON format.
IaC provides the ability to configure in-depth security groups prior to deployment. What’s more, with the lack of manual intervention the margin for human error is significantly reduced.
Thanks to IaC, your templates can be deployed on AWS or Azure in any cloud region meaning you’ll reach global customers. Plus, you’ll now have the chance to deploy in a different region in the event of a local outage.
