What is Cloud Management?

In order to make an application or service run effectively and efficiently, a lot of upkeep needs to go into the Management of the service in question. Many people believe that management only refers to the business and what we as the workers would need to do to make the company run well, but there is much more to cloud systems management than that.

Is it expensive?

Many people believe that cloud management can be very expensive compared to the use of private servers, but contrary to that belief, the cost can be very much cheaper. But the cost of management can also be underestimated if you forget to include the cost of any third party services, and not just the initial cost of migration. There are tools at your disposal, and accurate price options that allow for a much easier choice, and much less stress placed upon your own shoulders.

What are the benefits?

The hurdles many customers need to overcome are mostly concerned with time. For example, if a site does not run smoothly, and it experiences multiple speed problems, 28% of shoppers will potentially abandon their carts, and the site altogether. If a site faces an hour of downtime, potentially thousands in business could be lost, but if we stay on top of these kinds of issues, we aim to make that number as close to 0% as possible.
Many people believe that management over a cloud service is harder to use than a private server, and that every person who uses a cloud service must be technically trained. Thankfully, there are many third party applications we can use called Cloud Computing Based Management Information Systems (or CMIS), which allow people to collect, sort through, and analyze large amounts of data in a much shorter amount of time, and in a much more efficient manner. After all of the data is processed by the information systems, we ask the customer to provide feedback or potential areas of improvement that we or our systems may have missed, or if there are any personal or professional changes that need to be made. Once these potential changes have been brought to our attention, they will be made rapidly.
With the use of DEVOps, a process many people and companies alike use to expedite the release of high quality applications and the ability to make changes to them quickly and efficiently. It is our job to ensure that everyone who uses our services has a much easier time implementing these changes, so you can rest assured that your project is in good hands. A broken down description of this model is as follows;
  • Planning
  • Building
  • Deploy
  • Continuous integration
  • Operation
  • Continuous feedback
When we have continuous feedback, it helps us know how the application is acting in all other stages listed above. With continuous integration, we are able to ensure that after deployment, your application will always operate at an extremely efficient level, and once the planning and building of any necessary changes are complete, it will be all the more easy for the changes to be implemented into your application.
This is exactly why communication in a project is essential, which is a large part of every part of management. So when there ever becomes anything to question in these projects, it is in everybody’s best interest, and in the best interest of the project to come to us about it. It will speed everything along, create a good working environment for yourself, your team, and the project in extension. Thanks to the dedicated team we have at your disposal, any issues your project may face will be dealt with efficiently.
