IT Ops has traditionally managed servers and the infrastructure through human actions, which often causes delays and mistakes from updates to deployments. Infrastructure from Code removes the human related problems by providing management and provisioning of the Data Center through machine read configuration files. This provides a repeatable, recoverable and often times, more secure Data Center. In this course, Infrastructure from Code: The Big Picture, you'll learn about the concepts of DevOps, and the process and tools of Infrastructure from Code. You'll delve into learning about automating your processes with a Release Pipeline, how it can shift the performance of IT Ops, and finally a variety of tools to start building repeatable, safe, and reliable deployments. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a starting point to move past this overview and into building your own Release Pipeline for Infrastructure from Code.
