Cloud based computing carries a lot of promise for many Bay Area business owners. However, it’s still an IT infrastructure, and must be managed to deliver all the desired benefits to your business.
Most businesses, so far, are adopting a hybrid approach to the cloud, moving some assets to the cloud while maintaining other assets in the local data center. This can create some challenges to provide a single management interface.
“Consumption” based billing models for cloud infrastructures also require some close monitoring. Many network processes that aren’t always monitored in on-premise environments (such as network “transactions”, CPU usage, and disk usage) can dynamically affect costs in cloud environments, and therefore need to be managed.
Virtual servers in the cloud need to be kept up-to-date with regards to patches and updates, too, just as the servers in your local data center.
It’s important to remember that the cloud infrastructure was never intended to be a “set and forget” solution for your business.
