Infrastructure as Code with Rob Hirschfeld

Infrastructure as code is a concept that has delighted software engineers, dev ops, and engineering management across the board. It’s neither fun nor efficient to configure the infrastructure and environments software teams require. Operating software at scale on a cloud, on-prem, or hybrid model is a problem of modernity that many enterprises find surprisingly challenging.

Rob Hirschfeld is CEO and co-founder of RackN whose software helps IT teams maintain distributed, multi-vendor operations with consistent operational control. We discuss the approaches being adopted by modern enterprise teams for infrastructure management.
