On-demand infrastructure, with its speed, agility, efficient use of resources and lower costs drives many organizations toward cloud adoption.
When used in conjunction with tools like CloudFormation or Terraform, users are able to provision and remove cloud infrastructure programmatically. This is typically referred to as Infrastructure as Code, or IaC, and is great for stateless resources.
However, what if some servers cannot be regularly re-provisioned from scratch? Does it mean they need to be up and running 24/7, even if only used during limited hours?
