Keeping it Simple: Infrastructure as Code
Let’s start by introducing Simple. They are introducing a new way to do banking, and manage your finances. So why are we talking about them here at Virtualization Software? Well, that’s because Simple doesn’t just aim to simplify banking, they also have learned by practice to simplify their infrastructure.
Infrastructure as Code
The phrase Infrastructure as Code is becoming more common these days. As organizations seek a way to deliver and manage their IT assets using policy-based tools and techniques, the movement towards infrastructure as code is becoming a popular one.
This is an extension, or perhaps a part of DevOps. Delivering infrastructure at Simple used a combination of tools and technologies which is very nicely explained in their blog here at the Simple.com site.
Imagine rebuilding your entire application infrastructure. It seems like a daunting and scary prospect, but the team at Simple have learned, and shared a great lesson on what drove them to take on the task. I really like what they have done, and I can assure you that we are going to see many stories like this in the coming months and years.
