Infrastructure as Code

Manage and provision computer data centers through machine-readable definition files.

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) can be defined as the process of provisioning and managing resources through definition files that are machine-readable, instead of physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools. In simple words, IaC can be referred to as the process of automating manual tasks required for IT resource management and provisioning, just through simple lines of code.
The Infrastructure as Code process involves the following 3 steps:
Step 1: The developers define and write the infrastructure specifications in a language that is domain-specific.
Step 2: The files that are created are then sent either to a management API, master server, or a code repository.
Step 3: The platform then takes all the necessary actions to create and configure the computing resources.
Opsio + Infrastructure as Code

Here are the major tools used for Infrastructure as code:

AWS CloudFormation offers an easy way to model, provision and manage a collection of related AWS and third-party resources, manage them throughout their lifecycles, provision them quickly and consistently by treating infrastructure as code.

Reap benefits for efficiency by utilizing containerization (Docker & Kubernetes)

Containerization is a hot topic with software developers as it has revolutionized the way we perceive virtualisation. Containerization offers various benefits for developers and the operations team while improving the IT infrastructure and keeping up with the pace of innovation. Businesses can deploy and create applications with more efficiency while securing it against threats.
Containers can be defined as lightweight software components that bundle applications, its dependencies, and configuration can be done in a single image, while running in isolated user environments on a virtualized environment or a traditional operating system. Containers are portable, secure and bug free as they are held away from the host operating system.
The portability factor is crucial in terms of development processes and compatibility with the vendors. To simplify the concept of containerization, it allows applications to be written once and can be run anywhere.
Opsio + Containerization

Types of containerization

Docker: Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to create, deploy, run applications by using containers. Docker is the containerization platform which is used to package your application and all its dependencies together in the form of containers, so that your application works seamlessly in any environment (development, test, or production). Docker architecture consists of Docker client, Docker Daemon running on Docker Host, and Docker Hub repository. Docker has client-server architecture in which the client communicates with the Docker Daemon running on the Docker Host using a combination of REST APIs, Socket IO, and TCP.
Kubernetes: Kubernetes provides you with a framework to run distributed systems resiliently. It takes care of scaling and failover for your application, provides deployment patterns, and more. Kubernetes is a portable, extensive, open-source platform for managing containerized workloads and services, that facilitates both declarative configuration and automation. With a large, rapidly growing ecosystem, Kubernetes services, support, and tools are widely available and used accordingly. For example, Kubernetes can easily manage a canary deployment for your system, which is an upgraded version of an existing deployment, with all the required application code and dependencies.
Portability: A container environment makes applications run smoothly on any platform or cloud, by abstracting applications away from the host Operating System.
Agility and speed: Because of their ability to speed up the application configuration and deployment processes, Containers can referred to as ‘lightweight’.
Scalability: Containers offers higher application scalability. A container application holds the ability to handle increasing workloads as it has a service-oriented application design.
Faster deployment: Containers can facilitate a rapid development environment to generate more applications because the portable applications use the platform’s source code to run.
Ease of management: Application management, automating installation, scaling and management of containerization workloads can be taken care of with Container orchestration tools.
Security: Since applications can run independently in separate containers, they will have their own unique level of security. App isolation also removes the risk factor of adding additional features.

Relational databases: In Relational Databases which are the oldest type of database, data was stored in multiple related tables, and contained data which was stored in rows and columns. As the name suggests, data is stored in multiple, related tables. The most common language for reading, creating, updating, and deleting data is Structured Query Language (SQL). Examples: Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, IBM Db2 and PostgreSQL.
NoSQL databases: Databases that do not use SQL as its primary data access language, can be defined as NoSQL Databases, also referred to as non-relational database. These types of databases are suitable for organizations looking to store semi-structured data or unstructured data as the data in a NoSQL database need not adapt to a pre-defined schema. Examples: Apache Cassandra, MongoDB, CouchDB, and CouchBase.
Cloud databases: Databases that are designed and structured to run in a cloud environment can be referred to as cloud databases. Since the databases exist in a cloud environment, like other cloud-based applications, offer more flexibility and scalability, with high availability. They require low maintenance since most are offered through SaaS model. Examples: Microsoft Azure SQL Database, Amazon Relational Database Service, Oracle Autonomous Database.
Hierarchical databases: Hierarchical databases utilize a parent-child model to store data. Structured like a family tree, the hierarchical database, with one object on top flowing down to multiple objects below it. Developed by IBM in the 1960s, hierarchical databases can support high-performance and high availability applications. Examples: IBM Information Management System (IMS), Windows Registry.

Build highly available and scalable infrastructure by leveraging the power of microservices.

Microservices are an architectural and organizational approach to software development where software is composed of small independent services that communicate over well-defined APIs. These services are owned by small, self-contained teams.
Microservices (or microservices architecture) can also be referred to as a cloud native architectural approach where a single application consists of various loosely coupled and independently deployable smaller components, or services.
Opsio + Microservices

Get more done with Microservices

Microservices architectures make applications more scalable, quicker development, easier innovation, while accelerating time-to-market for new or updated features. Microservices provide reusable code, agility, flexible scaling, easy deployment, resilience, and technological freedom.
With their own technology stack, microservices are inclusive of the database and data management models, they are set up to communicate with each another over a combination of REST APIs, event streaming, and message brokers are organized by business capability, with a bounded context, which is a clearly defined line separating services.
Agility: Small to medium size organizations can take ownership of their services independently with microservices. Empower your teams to be more efficient, and with quicker development cycle periods, which greatly improves overall efficiency of the business.
Flexible Scaling: With microservices, businesses can independently scale each service and its features, while adapting to the requirements of the business. This makes teams more efficient in controlling costs, defining the right infrastructure needs, and maintain high availability rates if there is a spike in demand.
Easy Deployment: Teams can easily roll back changes if certain challenges arise with continuous integrations and continuous delivery, or they must test out new ideas. The cost of failure is minimal, which allows businesses to be more experimental and continuously refine their code so that they can accelerate time-to-market.
Technological Freedom: Microservice architectures allow businesses to have the freedom to choose the best tool to solve specific problems. With more flexibility and by controlling costs, teams can efficiently choose the suitable tools.
Reusable Code: Businesses can use multiple functions for various purposes by breaking down software into small, well-defined modules. Services written for specific functions can be utilized as a building block for a different feature, empowering developers to create new capabilities without writing any new code from scratch.
Resilience: Businesses can deliver services more independently due to an application’s resistance to failure. Microservices are not built like monolithic architectures, they are independent. Applications can handle total service failures by degrading functionality and avoiding crashes of applications.
