What is automated server deployment?

Deployment refers to the automated roll-out of a system. This can be an application, a fully configured server, or a container. Thanks to automation, these processes are not only simpler and faster to perform, but also reproducible.

Where are automated server deployments used?

For a reproducible infrastructure, the rolling out of servers is standardized and automated in conjunction with lifecycle management. This enables the problem-free extension of existing structures with the same software and package status. Reproducibility also has advantages in test environments for simulating error scenarios. The aim of server deployments is also to control the central deployment of the servers from a single location, without direct access to the server in question being necessary.

Where are automated server deployments used?

  • Selecting the right tools for your desired deployment
  • When configuring the deployment processes
  • Integration of deployment processes in your IT infrastructure
  • With training and education on the corresponding tools

What are the benefits of automated server deployments?

  • Standardization: Servers can always be set up identically and have the same software and package status in conjunction with lifecycle management.
  • Automation: The installation of a new server runs automatically without having to access the server directly.
  • Reproducibility: Automated and standardized processes can be repeated and always deliver the same result.
