- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
- Platform as a Service (PaaS)
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
Examples I’ve used
What are the differences?
Infrastructure as Code
So what is IaC, Infrastructure as Code? Standardise Infrastructure, Automate deployment and recreate, well-documented code. Exampled formats such as JSON & ARM templates.
DevOps teams will use IaC to recreate production like environments in dev cycles. Validate and Test deployments, prior to a production deployment. The end result being able to deliver a stable and repeatable environment.
Azure Resource Manager
The alternative to just running scripts. Manage your infrastructure resources in a group by templates. In addition, you apply security (RBAC) and tags, then associate costs to the group.
