Infrastructure Definition

Infrastructure lays the foundation and forms the backbone to support an organization or a system. Information technology infrastructure comprises both virtual and physical resources that assist in the storage, flow, processing and analysis of data. Infrastructure can be either centralized in a data center or it can be decentralized and dispersed across several data centers. These data centers may be managed by an organization or by a third party such as a cloud service provider or collocation facility.

Types of infrastructure:

Immutable infrastructure forms the framework for managing services and software deployments on IT resources and services in a manner where the components are replaced but not changed. A service such as an application has to be repeatedly redeployed each time a change occurs.

Composable infrastructure views storage and fabric resources as services. Logically pooling the resources help administrators to support a particular software application without having to physically configure the hardware.

Dynamic infrastructure provides a framework that can adjust and equip itself automatically according to workload demands.

In a critical infrastructure framework, assets are considered utmost important and their continued operation is imperative for ensuring the security of a nation, the public’s safety and health, and also its economy.

Contact-center infrastructure is a framework that consists of both virtual and physical resources that a call-center facility requires to effectively operate.

A cloud infrastructure is a framework helps in virtualizing resources and presenting them logically to users over the internet through APIs and API-enabled graphic interfaces. It can also be deployed for automated billing, user self-service, and user-side reporting.

Dark infrastructure constitutes a framework that consists of active software and services which are undocumented and whose function and existence is unknown to system administrators.
