Buzzwords you need to know in Infrastructure as Code (2021) - Part I

On our website you might find a lot of jargons and buzzwords, which sometimes can be very confusing or difficult or overwhelming . So we decided to go ahead and create this starter guide for you to get you started. And this is just the part one, stay tuned for part two. 

Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

Infrastructure as Code helps teams to Deploy, manage resources as a group, rather than handling these resources individually further provisioning multiple test environments reliably and on-demand. With IaC, infrastructure can be managed and provisioned via source control, which further enables a detailed audit trail for changes further enabling effective collaboration between Development and Operations teams.

Infrastructure as Code Platform

Platforms have become an absolute necessity of any business and no longer a strategy of digital natives. Many platforms have become an essential part of the business landscape and no longer the domain solely of digital natives. Incumbent companies, including Daimler, Nike, and Unilever, have launched their own platforms as their business models mature, although we found they are only about half as likely as digital natives to go this route

Nexastack  is a IaC Platform to manage Cloud - Native and Bare Metal Infrastructure efficiently and enabling Improved auditability and versioning. IaC helps teams to perform automated configuration steps for building, maintaining Cloud infrastructure with best practices.

Multi-Cloud 

The use of two or more public cloud vendors to serve an organization's IT services and infrastructure is known as multi-cloud. A multi-cloud strategy usually includes Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft (Azure), and IBM.
Organisations benefit from a multi-cloud strategy because it saves resources, enhances disaster mitigation, reduces barriers to innovation, and business continuity, and increases productivity. Read More

Cloud Native

The buzz around Cloud Native has been around for sometime, more than a decade ago Netflix leveraged cloud technologies and coined the term. And the rest is history, Netflix is the largest consumer on-demand content delivery network. Cloud native is, at its core, a means to accelerate the reach to market faster and a way of structuring the teams to take advantage of the automation and scalability that cloud native technology like Kubernetes provide.

Compliance as Code

Compliance-as-code is one of the most important thing you might do to eliminate risk and raise profits. Highly organised businesses must not only comply with a array of laws, but also be able to prove it. Any questions, such as Does your security staff know what your production team does, are difficult to answer. or Do you have a complete understanding of the state and configuration of any system in your organization? Not knowing their answers have serious real-world implications. Compliance as code answers it all.

Policy as Code 

While most cloud services have interactive GUI for creating policies, the process is not easily repeatable, and policies cannot be versioned. Furthermore, proposals must be checked against a live system, which may either be an operating system or one that has been installed and implemented. That is where Policy as code comes into picture, software development techniques like checking, automatic rollout, and version control can be used easily.
