Immutable infrastructure is a model in which no updates, security patches, or configuration changes happen in place on production systems. If any change is needed, a new version of the architecture is built and deployed. Since changes aren’t allowed in immutable infrastructure, you can be sure about the state of the deployed system. Immutable infrastructures are more consistent, reliable, and predictable, and they simplify many aspects of software development and operations by preventing common issues related to mutability. This session dives deep into this topic, and you learn why immutable infrastructure is an important concept in cloud architecture.
