  2. Scalability: One of the big deals about IaC is that a company can scale up or down easily and efficiently as needed, without a lot of manual work.

  3. Speed: IaC provides a rapid method to provision and deploy infrastructure. This saves both time and money, versus manually having to set up and configure systems.

  4. Agility: As technology and business process advance in having to quickly adapt to changes, IaC assists as a tool to quickly change due to market conditions by automating infrastructure changes.

  5. Version control: Another great thing about IaC is the built-in version control. This makes it easier to track changes, collaborate, and do rollbacks when needed.
