Automation: automation makes it easy to expand existing infrastructure with the same operating systems and software versions. The installation of a new host runs automatically without you having to access the host directly.
This saves both time and resources, and your IT teams can work on more value-adding tasks.
Standardization: hosts can always be set up in the same way. In combination with lifecycle management, they have the same software and package status.
Another goal of automated server deployment is to control the central deployment of hosts from a single location, without needing to access the relevant host directly.
This makes complex IT environments easier to understand and to audit.
Reproducibility: for a reproducible infrastructure, rolling out hosts is standardized and automated together with their lifecycle management.
Automated and standardized processes can be repeated and always deliver the same result.
This makes testing, error management, and disaster recovery a lot easier for you.
