Describe your infrastructure as code

József Pálfi
As we promised before, our article series inspired by V-day is continuing. Those who are provisioning servers day by day, certainly have some doubts about their process: being time-consuming, non-repeatable, hard to test or simply just something is going wrong in the existing infrastructure during the provisioning.
