Infrastructure: Automating and Simplifying DevOps with Low Code/No Code:

By Dick Weisinger

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is the management and automation of network hardware in a data center through software. Rather than the manual configuration of hardware, IaC contains the complete set of instructions to roll out data center hardware. Using the same software procedure provides consistency and eliminates error-prone manual steps.

The problem of IaC though is that the knowledge and skillsets needed to write the infrastructure code is often spread across different teams in an organization.

Venkat Thiruvengadam, CEO and founder of DuploCloud, told that “code doesn’t write itself — you still need [a] tremendous amount of subject matter expertise in terms of operations and security. This idea that developers would just use infrastructure as code and build software, I think it’s starting to hit challenges — because while they know how to do programming, the developers don’t know operations because they’re not IT [operations] people, they don’t know security because they’re not security people.”

Some see the application of Low Code/No Code infrastructure configuration tools as the solution. Thiruvengagam said that “a lot of people who don’t have all the three skill sets still can operate at the same scale and efficiency, using this technology — that’s fundamentally the core advantage.”

DuploCloud, a vendor in the IaC No Code/Low Code space, said that “ultimately, we are going to move to no-code or low-code approaches to handle the scale and policy requirements. This is a change we are seeing for regular application development also and IaC is even more primitive when it comes to doing complex tasks and orchestration.”
