Application delivery pipelines can make it a lot easier to quickly iterate on applications, but what about infrastructure? There’s toil hiding everywhere in infrastructure management, including processes like scaling up or down, patching, and more. On top of that, security requirements are often a huge consideration.

Let's explore some strategies for continuously delivering our infrastructure using an end-to-end CI/CD pipeline. We will also make use of infrastructure-as-code tools to manage the full infrastructure lifecycle.

We'll look at how this use case can help build patterns for others, and get some ideas for improving infrastructure provisioning and management!
