Software-Defined Infrastructure, or SDI, is the management of your entire infrastructure as software. Modern provisioning techniques combined with configuration management have progressively blurred the line between software and infrastructure. While the complication of actually implementing it can vary immensely, it has been increasingly possible to abstract more and more into a single DSL.
Using a traditional infrastructure and simplified application stack as an example, we will examine the necessary components to reach an approximation of SDI, identify the brick walls you will run into, ways to work around them, the importance of separation of concerns and sources of truth, and discuss dependency resolution strategies and classification. Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) will be discussed briefly.
