Large organizations are eagerly adopting cloud infrastructures and services, according to a NetEnrich report released on Thursday. Some 85% of businesses said they use cloud infrastructures moderately or extensively; however, it is public cloud adoption that will dominate 2019, the report found. The report surveyed 100 IT decision-makers in companies with at least 500 employees. Public cloud adoption continues growing because of its scalability and ease of use within the enterprise—which explains why 68% of IT departments are currently using public cloud infrastructures, and why 80% of respondents said their companies have moved at least a quarter of their information to the public cloud, according to the report.

Article | April 15, 2020

With infrastructure as code (IaC), you write declarative instructions about compute, storage and network requirements for the infra and execute it. How does this compare to platform as code (PaC) and what did these two concepts develop in response to? In its simplest form, the tech stack of any application has three layers — the infra layer containing bare metal instances, virtual machines, networking, firewall, security etc.; the platform layer with the OS, runtime environment, development tools etc.; and the application layer which, of course, contains your application code and data. A typical operations team works on the provisioning, monitoring and management of the infra and platform layers, in addition to enabling the deployment of code.
