In this lesson, we covered many facets of infrastructure management, including:
- Virtualization and Containerization
- Infrastructure as Code
- Cloud vs On-Premises infrastructure
DevOps brought about many changes to infrastructure management. DevOps practices include an emphasis on containerization, cloud-based infrastructure, and Infrastructure as Code. These practices have brought about cost-effective, scalable infrastructure and ultimately better user experience.
In your own words, what are two ways that DevOps improves upon traditional infrastructure management practices? How does DevOps provide benefits in terms of scalability, cost, and user experience in relation to those traditional infrastructure management practices?
