Knowing the way to rack and stack servers isn’t an in-demand skill at this stage. Most businesses aren’t building physical datacenters. Rather, we’re designing and building service capabilities that are hosted publicly cloud environments. Now the infrastructure is configured, deployed, and managed through code. and this is often the guts of the DevOps movement—when a corporation can define their infrastructure in lines of code, automating most (if not all) tasks within the datacenter becomes possible.
Advanced levels of automation enable Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) practices that weren’t possible within the past. The infrastructure is automatically deployed to support test processes which will push an application all the thanks to production without human intervention. The work of a technologist crawling under the tiles of a raised floor to connect new network cables is not any longer within the critical path for production application deployment.
