The path to the cloud, be it internal, public, virtual private or just lean operations is fraught with pitfalls and impediments. One key way of avoiding some of these is to move to infrastructure as code. What does this mean? It means treating your entire infrastructure stack as a complex, modular, software application with all the associated control and maintenance required.
The benefits are many and the return can be in year but, risks exist. Do it right and you have a lean, agile and consistent environment, your service catalogue is better aligned to the consumer and you reduce the project burn in development testing, compliance and release phases. Do it wrong and you risk, increased complexity and cost, cloud bill shock, broken standards, security issues etc.
