In a world that’s constantly modernizing, developers are at the forefront of progress, embracing cutting-edge tools that match the pace. Industry-standard practices like infrastructure-as-code (IaC) are getting an update: Framework-defined infrastructure (FdI) is an approach to deploying applications that is quickly gaining popularity among developers, where the deployment environment automatically provisions infrastructure derived from the framework and the applications written in it. For developers, this serverless architecture means more reliability, increased productivity, top-of-the-line security and reduced costs.
To modernize development practices, understanding the role of framework-defined infrastructure in defining and automating infrastructure—and its impact on the development experience in open source frameworks—is crucial.
The Evolution From IaC to FdI
