IaC stands for Infrastructure as Code. It's an approach in software development and IT operations where infrastructure provisioning and management are handled using code and automation rather than manual processes.

With IaC, servers, networks, storage, and other resources, are defined and managed using code scripts or configuration files. These scripts or files can be version-controlled, allowing for easy tracking of changes, reproducibility of environments, and collaboration among teams.

IaC tools, such as Terraform, AWS CloudFormation, or Ansible, enable developers and system administrators to programmatically define and deploy infrastructure configurations. This approach enhances efficiency, reduces human error, and enables consistent and repeatable deployments across different environments, from development to production.
