In a CloudOps world, applications automatically get the infrastructure they deserve, cloud environments are fully optimized and secure, and teams are free to focus on applications, not operations.
CloudOps extends the DevOps principles of automation, continuous improvement and collaboration to critical operations required to run secure cloud-based systems with high availability, performance and at scale.
After experiencing early success, cloud journeys are stalling as exploding costs, manual processes, siloed teams and increasing complexity drain the value of your cloud investment, stall acceleration and put your systems at risk.
In the rush to migrate, many companies overlook the shift that has taken place in their core IT operations. Infrastructure, security and cost management all look different than they did on premise.
Rather than morph traditional IT operations to fit the cloud, CloudOps brings purpose-built practices that enable teams across IT, engineering, finance and security to scale and optimize cloud services:
Align business imperatives to cloud operations and execute strategies that unlock long-term value in the cloud.
Automation that is proactive, and responds to the changing requirements of the dynamic business applications it supports.
Achieve optimal performance and maximum efficiency by extending the principles of CI/CD to cloud operations.
Visibility should focus on delivering the data you need to make informed business decisions. Companies that are successful in operating the cloud have visibility that connects performance, cost, usage, and reliability.
Build monitoring as a continuous loop that not only collects data across multi-cloud environments but integrates with other IT and Ops tools.
Leverage tagging to connect business stakeholders to applications and provide ways to place cloud services in a business context.
Spot problems before they arise, enforce governance, and manage costs and budgets more accurately.
Identify opportunities for optimization of configurations, utilization, security and costs.
To meet the on-demand delivery of cloud resources, automation capabilities are necessary across CloudOps domains to close the gaps in spending, security and maintenance processes. Applying automation lets you standardize operational functions like provisioning, and configuring resources so you can scale fast and efficiently.
Cloud visibility turns into actions with self-healing and auto-provisioning for maximum performance with minimal interruption.
Expand and iterate quickly to meet SLAs as workload requirements change.
Build best practices into automated workflows that protect deployments against security risk and disaster.
Extend the DevOps toolchain with autonomous and self-service tools for repeatable processes.
Cloud optimization focuses on the key areas of utilization, cost and security to realize long-term value, and can’t be achieved through troubleshooting and monitoring alone. Rather than a one-time activity, or when applications fail, optimization is an ongoing cycle where intelligence drives automation to ensure cloud environments are always secure, performant and free of waste.
Implement tools that enable cloud infrastructure to instantly react to new traffic patterns, code and events.
Driven by AI and machine learning, optimal solutions and improvements are found and automatically promoted.
Define spending processes that maximize value per spend, realign and redistribute resources, and use cloud technology to monitor, execute and enforce strategies.
The cloud requires a new operating model where the domains of DevOps, security and finance are aligned to run the cloud as efficiently and as optimized as possible. These teams need to maximize value by leveraging cloud-based tools and processes to execute operations and deliver the benefits of the cloud to the business.
Ongoing processes to operate and manage tools that are used to maximize value, maintain availability and enable fast development.
Bring accountability to cloud spending and enable cross-functional teams to make decisions that best support business logic.
Create and enforce comprehensive policies that maintain security of cloud environments without compromising normal business operations.
