Delivering business agility with Infrastructure as Code


graphic.pngMore and more companies today are moving toward continuous delivery of applications and services in pursuit of greater business agility. In order to achieve this agility, businesses and their ITs need fast, policy-based automation of applications and infrastructure across development, testing and deployment. They need to configure, deploy and operate applications in relation to infrastructure in a fast and fluid way. We call this idea, “infrastructure as code.”


The idea of infrastructure as code can dramatically lower configuration and operating costs, and reduce the time it takes to deliver services that are critical to business outcomes. Utilizing infrastructure as code allows your IT to automate how they build, deploy, and manage infrastructure allowing your infrastructure to become testable and repeatable.


HP ConvergedSystem infrastructure is increasingly being designed to participate in this infrastructure as code movement. Through our adoption of HP Composable Infrastructure and open, REST-based infrastructure APIs that enable composability of physical infrastructure, your operation teams can automate configuration and provisioning of infrastructure through model-based templates. These templates allow you to capture how your infrastructure should be built, test it, and then deploy it out to your entire infrastructure with the push of a button. (For an example of this in-action, check out this article.)


HP Composable Infrastructure is ideal for composing and provisioning physical infrastructure, but it also extends programmability to the broader automation tool chain. HP templates allow you to integrate with other configuration management tools from companies such as Chef, Docker or Puppet Labs. By integrating HP OneView with these configuration management tools, you can keep your physical and virtual infrastructure automated, including the ability to easily update platforms with new firmware, drivers, and software.


HP Composable Infrastructure allows your IT to utilize infrastructure as code to deliver the fast, fluid, flexible digital capability you need to compete more effectively, and give your business the agility it needs to thrive.
