Mandate zero patching. Drive automation in the cloud.

In-place patching is an anti-pattern for cloud-native applications that originates from the data center with low levels of automation for infrastructure and application management.

The shift-left movement pushes ownership to the development teams that are best served by applying all changes via their CI/CD pipelines. This goes for infrastructure, containers, serverless, code, et al.
