Its not abstraction.Its not even "infrastructure as code".Its not any single tool.Its not about provisioning.Its not about deployment.Its not about a job description or position.
Its also not about the cloud, except forthe part where deployment andprovisioning of infrastructure gets easierto understand for groups of people whohistorically wouldnt have touched thatpart of the business.
It *is* about the collaborative andcommunicative culture and the tools andprocess that arise from that culture.Nothing more. John Allspaw VP of Technical Operations at Etsy http://www.rationalsurvivability.com/blog/?p=1890#IDComment158037001
