With Packer we can create cloud agnostic AMIs.
The AMIs that we create will work for AWS, GCP, Azure and even for proxmox vms.
- We can have Packer in our CI/CD pipeline to generate machine images.
- Packer vs Ansible:
- You can bring a base image to a desired state using Ansible but if it takes 2H to do it, it is better to have AMIs.
- Also if Ansible is taking 2H then this means there is a lot of downloading which is a waste of resources.
