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.

Why do you need automated server deployments?

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, as it enables error scenarios to be simulated. The aim of server deployments is also to control the servers centrally from one location without the need for direct access to the server in question.

Where are automated server deployments used?

  • When selecting the appropriate tools for the desired deployment
  • When configuring the deployment processes
  • When integrating deployment processes into an 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 in the same way and have the same software and package versions 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.
