The operational and infrastructural overhead involved in running and maintaining cloud-based solutions is often massive. There is considerable effort and expenditure in the construction and scaling of storage systems for tons of user metadata and other in-house files. Dropbox, the file hosting pioneer, is a success story about how cloud costs can be minimized by intelligently managing your infrastructure.
As software development gets complex, we see cross-functional teams collaborating to enable faster product delivery, optimize cost, manage infrastructure, and for several business benefits. An example of such a joint effort is ‘Cloud FinOps’ wherein finance, engineering, technology, and business teams aim at cloud financial management.
We are living in an information-driven era. Millions of bytes of data get generated every second, and it becomes more challenging for organizations to keep vital information, software, and operating systems up and running on conventional in-house servers. That’s where cloud computing services come into play.
Businesses around the world spend billions of dollars every year on cloud infrastructure services, storage, and computing resources. They can gain an edge over each other with effective cloud infrastructure without any wasteful cloud spending. There are two rising approaches towards cloud cost optimization today that they can choose from; Capital Expenditure (CapEx) and Operational Expenditure (OpEx).
Migrating to the cloud is the new normal for businesses of all sizes. Based on availability, compliance, performance, sovereignty, and other technical factors, businesses are making a choice for a relevant cloud services provider.
A modern infrastructure that’s agile, flexible, and scalable is on the mind of every infrastructure & operations (I&O) leader. In a cloud-first and automation world, I&O leaders are introducing new ways to utilize and manage infrastructure.
For technology organizations, cloud adoption is a go-to strategy for cost reduction, risk mitigation, and a more increased scope of scalability. Enterprise-ready cloud infrastructure highlights the maturity of a company's depth of technological prowess. Therefore, it is important to conduct periodic cloud readiness assessments.
Containers have been solving real problems for IT operations teams. They are enabling faster deployment of applications, ease migration to the cloud, maximize scalability, reduce environment variables, improve code reusability, and a lot more.
As cloud adoption becomes a widely accepted norm amongst organizations, effective management of the cloud infrastructure is now at the forefront. Efficient management of the cloud leads to holistic resource optimization and the option of keeping a close eye on cloud infrastructure spending.
DevOps introduced a change in the IT culture with the adoption of agile, lean practices for development. It emphasized people, tools, methodologies, and discovered how a balance between the development and operations team could bring a significant shift in a software development cycle. DevOps leverage automation tools to build a dynamic infrastructure.
