Cloud infrastructure has been on the rise for the last decade. As it's adoption grows, so has the complexity of managing infrastructure, becoming more complex and more prone to user mistakes. This led to a new wave of tools in the Infrastructure as Code (IaC) space that aim to tackle this issue by treating your infrastructure as you would any other piece of software.

In this post, we'll go over an overview of what is IaC, why you should consider using it and a brief introduction to how some of these tools work under the hood.

When getting started, using an Infrastructure as Code (Iac) tool might seem overkill, and something that will slow down development. Building and deploying manually is often the way to go early stage - infrastructure changes constantly and having to re-write your configuration can be a pointless exercise until you have a better understanding of the fundamental pieces of your infrastructure.

However, most infrastructures get to a point where manual deployments and resource definition start actually slowing you down. Manual deployments, having to create copies for each environment or having dozens of developers deploying changes to code/infrastructure - these are all things that can lead to mistakes, downtime or even loss of data.

In this blog post, we'll take a look at the current IaC landscape, current tools and how they compare against each other.
