Infrastructure Automation

Infrastructure automation is the use of technology to perform tasks with IT systems, thus reducing direct human interaction with those systems.

IT infrastructure automation tools can control IT elements including servers, storage, network elements, and operating systems (OS), with the goal of improving efficiency of IT operations and staff, with the goal of hands-off operation in most environments including both cloud and on-premises elements of hybrid IT environments.

Cloud infrastructure automation tools greatly improve efficiency and speed of workload deployments and can help reduce costs by terminating unused virtual machines (VMs), reclaiming unneeded or unused storage, and ensuring tasks are performed consistently.

Automation eliminates manual provisioning and handling of underlying infrastructure processes, enabling the rapid development of secure, scalable applications. Some benefits of infrastructure automation include:

  • Reducing human error. Automation eliminates vulnerabilities typically associated with human error during manual provisioning. By reducing manual efforts, IT teams focus on core development and innovation rather than investing efforts on iterative processes.
  • Reducing infrastructure complexity. Automation reduces the cost and effort to implement and manage IT infrastructure. By reducing the administrative burden of performing repetitive tasks, operations teams deal with known complexities, a predictive framework that allows operations teams to optimize infrastructure for an enhanced user experience.
  • Enhancing workflows. Automation allows for repeatability, predictability, and accuracy when performing IT provisioning tasks. Operations teams only need to set the desired conditions for the provisioning of infrastructure, while automation tools execute the tasks needed when the right conditions are met.
  • Speeding up delivery and deployment. By autonomously executing repetitive workflows across multiple machines, automation significantly reduces the time taken to configure IT infrastructure. This means teams can develop products faster and reduce the overall time-to-market.

Infrastructure automation offers many benefits including:

  • Cost reductions from eliminating manual processes. Organizations will save labor costs without reducing the quality of IT operations.
  • Improved efficiency and accuracy of workflow deployment based on a central policy repository.
  • Increased agility and visibility into business processes even as the organization scales to meet growth Faster time to value for software updates and new releases.
  • Consistent and dynamic adjustment to infrastructure changes while maintaining consistent automation and service delivery.
  • Consistent security policy, control, and compliance across your multi-cloud environment.
  • Future-proof infrastructure by managing traditional and cloud-native workloads across private, hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
