Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and Its Role in Achieving DevOps Goals

Dinesh Reddy Chittibala [5]

Abstract: In the evolving landscape of software development, DevOps has emerged as a pivotal philosophy, blending software development (Dev) with information technology operations (Ops) to shorten the development lifecycle and provide continuous delivery with high software quality. Central to this paradigm is the concept of Infrastructure as Code (IaC), a practice that programmatically manages and provisions infrastructure through code rather than through manual processes. This paper delves into the integral role of IaC in actualizing DevOps objectives, highlighting how it catalyzes automation, ensures consistency and standardization, facilitates rapid deployment, and enhances collaboration. Through a comprehensive analysis, we explore how IaC not only automates and streamlines operations but also embeds compliance and security into the development process, aligning closely with the DevOps ethos of swift, reliable, and frequent deployments. Additionally, the paper addresses the challenges inherent in implementing IaC within a DevOps framework and proposes best practices to navigate these complexities effectively. The future of software development and IT operations is envisaged as a continuum where IaC and DevOps co - evolve, paving the way for more agile, efficient, and secure IT infrastructure management.
