The Challenges of Manual Infrastructure Management and How Finisterra can help

Infrastructure as code (IaC) has revolutionized the way organizations manage their cloud infrastructure. However, with the increasing complexity of cloud environments, manual infrastructure management can present several challenges. In this blog post, we will explore the drawbacks of manual infrastructure management and how it can impact the efficiency, security, and development velocity of your organization.

The Drawbacks of Manual Infrastructure Management

Manual infrastructure management can lead to several challenges, including:

  1. Technical Debt Reduction: With manual management, it’s easy to accumulate technical debt, which can slow down development velocity and increase the time to deploy.
  2. Cloud Sprawl Control: Manual management can result in cloud sprawl, making it difficult to control and optimize cloud resources, leading to increased costs.
  3. IaC Consistency: Manual management can result in inconsistencies in IaC, making it difficult to maintain consistency across different environments.
  4. Security: With manual management, it’s challenging to ensure that security best practices are being followed, increasing the risk of security breaches.

The Advantages of Automated Infrastructure Management

Automated infrastructure management using tools like Terraform can help organizations overcome the challenges of manual management. Some of the advantages of automated management include:

  1. Time to Deploy Reduction: Automated management can help reduce the time to deploy, leading to increased productivity and development velocity.

  2. Technical Debt Reduction: Automated management can help reduce technical debt, making it easier to maintain and update your infrastructure.

  3. Cloud Sprawl Control: Automated management can help control cloud sprawl, making it easier to optimize cloud resources and reduce costs.

  4. IaC Consistency: Automated management can help maintain consistency in IaC, making it easier to maintain and update your infrastructure.

  5. Security: Automated management can help ensure that security best practices are being followed, reducing the risk of security breaches.
