Shift from managing infrastructure by hand to managing it through automation
It is important to move from managing infrastructure by hand to managing it through automation. When you shift to using automation, you get the following benefits:
- Scalability since you can use the same automation that has been created for multiple workloads that are deployed in the cloud.
- Consistency as you can review configuration drift and enforce consistent configuration across workloads.
- Declarative definition of the infrastructure because code is used to document configuration and deploy consistent configuration.
- Cost savings because you reduce the amount of time it takes to perform activities and issues that can come from manual configuration errors.
