Fuse DevOps and IT Operations for Efficient Cloud Infrastructure


Cloud computing is the new normal now. But as we move to the cloud in a big way with a mix of cloud configurations — on-premises, private, and third-party cloud services with many tools — managing the resulting complexities have become tough, especially for the IT teams. You can’t apply traditional IT operation methods to cloud-based architectures. What you need are standard operating procedures for long-term cloud operations.

This is where an effective CloudOps strategy – or, to put it simply, cloud operations management – comes in. It’s the process of identifying and defining the processes and procedures to optimize IT services within the cloud environment.

Cloud operations management is not about new tools or technologies; rather, it’s how you use those tools within your set procedures. A solid game plan is needed in all aspects – from security to problem management, monitoring, and performance. This is an area in which Trianz excels.

Why Consider Cloud Operations Management?


Here are key reasons why enterprises should think seriously about using CloudOps:

  • Security Operations

    Security operations or SecOps is a shared responsibility between the enterprise CloudOps teams and the cloud provider. But in a rush to move to the cloud, it can get confusing and become a major source of breaches. Such breaches aren’t due to a lack of sophisticated technologies but are a lack of understanding about the roles and responsibilities.

  • Scalability and Automation

    Through the cloud, capacity can be increased or reduced at any time without investing in additional physical space or hardware. The adoption of CloudOps virtualizes the capacity planning and asset management of a business, making it simpler. Additionally, as the cloud automates many operations across the SDLC, it significantly reduces disruptions to applications or users.

  • Growing Complexity

    As large-scale cloud adoption gathers steam, and businesses choose multiple, best-of-breed platforms and tools, the entire cloud spectrum becomes too complex to manage. While siloed cloud dev and migration teams make their own calls around what technology to use, integrating or migrating between multiple applications without set guidelines can become challenging, fast.

  • Remote Cloud Platforms

    The remote nature of cloud-based platforms means that the ops team doesn’t have direct control as the cloud provider schedules and executes all the fixes. Though giving up the time-consuming control of platforms is good, special care must be taken to manage the operational aspects.

Challenges in Embracing Cloud Operations


Transition to Serverless Functions

Transition to Serverless Functions

When traditional operations are the bedrock of the underlying infrastructure, it becomes challenging to merge CloudOps seamlessly. Unless a business has a set of best practices in place that streamline shared tasks – monitoring, and management between physical and cloud-based systems – teams will end up becoming more siloed.

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

With CloudOps, the teams work on dashboards and tools that automate much of the monitoring process. This means that alerting and monitoring need to be cloud-optimized, resulting in going back and forth between the cloud help desk and the traditional help desk without getting a clear answer from either.

Culture

Culture

Culture is perhaps the biggest impediment to a successful CloudOps transformation, demanding a company-wide shift in mindsets by using the same tools, following the same practices, and working together under the same leadership.

Get Ready to Embrace Cloud Operations


It’s hard to manage cloud operations by looking in the rearview mirror while you accelerate its reinvention. By the time a security leak becomes breaking news or a 10x monthly cloud bill arrives, the financial damage is done.

Cloud operations management must be predictive and proactive to be successful. And you should ideally need fewer tools, to make it easier for application owners to manage their budget and security while providing CloudOps the governance necessary to accelerate business agility.
