Examine how Infrastructure as Code (IaC) can eliminate deficiencies associated with manual resource configuration. Explore benefits and best practices for implementing IaC, prominent tools used, and benefits of Policy as Code. Key concepts covered in this 14-video course include how to use IaC to eliminate deficiencies associated with manual resource configuration; essential stages involved in the lifecycle of IaC and roles played by those stages; the transformation of IaC from DevOps to the CloudOps paradigm; and benefits of using Policy as Code to implement IaC. You will learn benefits and best practices for implementing IaC to realize CloudOps; prominent tools and services that can be used to implement IaC while applying the required DevOps and CloudOps policies; and the concept of Continuous Configuration Automation and tools used to automate and configure various layers of infrastructure. Next, see how to install Chef and write cookbooks that can be used to manage provisioning of resources; learn Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and differentiate between IaaS and IaC; and implement IaC with CloudFormation.
