Cloud Automation

Cloud automation is the process of automating IT processes in the cloud. It’s a set of tools, techniques and practices that help you manage your cloud workloads. Cloud automation tools can automate tasks like installing and configuring applications, patching and updating systems, or backing up data. These tasks can be repeated on demand or scheduled to run automatically.

The goal of cloud automation is to reduce manual work for IT administrators and make their jobs easier by automating repetitive tasks. These tasks are often tedious, time-consuming and error-prone when performed manually. Automated processes can also ensure compliance with policies, standards and best practices for IT operations.

In general, automated processes have better repeatability than manual ones do — which makes them easier to maintain over time as well as less prone to human error when carried out repeatedly by different users.
