As businesses look to do more with less, Automation has become an essential tool for IT departments. Automation not only saves money in the long term, but also increases the quality and predictability of processes. In this blog post, we will discuss how GitLab can be used to deploy Azure infrastructure.
Automation is a critical component of modern IT operations. It enables IT departments to streamline processes, reduce manual labor, and increase the efficiency of their operations. One of the key benefits of automation is that it helps organizations save money over time by reducing the amount of time and resources required to perform tasks.
At Unilogik, we help organizations across Canada implement GitLab to streamline deployment of Azure infrastructure. GitLab is a popular DevOps platform that offers a range of features for continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD). It provides a unified platform for source code management, testing, and deployment, making it easier for IT teams to manage their infrastructure.
Using GitLab to Deploy Azure Infrastructure
GitLab provides a range of tools and features that make it easier to deploy and manage infrastructure in Azure. These include:
Azure DevOps Integration: GitLab integrates with Azure DevOps, providing a seamless way to manage infrastructure and code. IT teams can use GitLab to manage their source code and use Azure DevOps to manage their infrastructure.
Infrastructure as Code: GitLab allows IT teams to manage their infrastructure as code, making it easier to automate the deployment and management of infrastructure. With Infrastructure as Code, IT teams can define their infrastructure using code, making it easier to version and manage changes.
Deployment Pipelines: GitLab provides a powerful deployment pipeline feature that makes it easy to automate the deployment of infrastructure. IT teams can use deployment pipelines to define the steps involved in deploying their infrastructure, making it easier to manage and automate the process.
Automated Testing: GitLab provides tools for automating the testing of infrastructure, making it easier to catch and fix issues before they impact production. IT teams can use GitLab to automate their testing process, ensuring that their infrastructure is always in a good state.
By using GitLab to deploy and manage their Azure infrastructure, IT teams are able to streamline their operations and improve the quality and predictability of their processes. This helps them to do more with less, saving money and improving the efficiency of their operations.
Standing up a Red Hat Openshift Cluster on Azure
In addition to deploying Azure infrastructure, IT teams at Unilogik also use GitLab to stand up a Red Hat OpenShift cluster on Azure. OpenShift is a popular container platform that provides a range of features for managing containers and microservices. By using GitLab to deploy OpenShift on Azure, IT teams are able to automate the process and streamline their operations.
By using GitLab to deploy and manage their Azure infrastructure, IT teams are able to do more with less. Automation enables them to streamline their processes, reduce manual labor, and increase the efficiency of their operations.
