How Infrastructure as Code Can Help Test Organizations Achieve Automation
For many test organizations, the first hurdle to automating the testing of a product is deployment of that product in its test environments. Infrastructure as code can be used to facilitate the basic processes of provisioning servers, from bare metal to virtual to cloud, as well as configuration management of the software that resides on the servers. Off-the-shelf infrastructure-as-code tools such as AWS CloudFormation, Chef, Puppet, and Ansible provide less expensive alternatives to developing proprietary in-house deployment solutions. Join Kat Rocha to learn how infrastructure as code can better align test and production environments and reduce problems that arise from configuration drift. We will explore how to use some Infrastructure-as-code tools to facilitate automation and improve testing.
