Cloud technology offers great opportunities, but it also poses great challenges. Too many choices and complexities that accompany them can confuse. Some known facts will help you to see things from the right side.
# 1 IS NOT POSSIBLE TO “HAVE” ANY “HOW” TO USE CLOUD
Cloud is a “mere” tool, not an ultimate goal by itself. Truth, pretty powerful tool. In fact, the cloud is a platform – with great performance for most needs, the ability to change resources, pay per consumption, high reliability and ease of use. But in essence, like any tool, cloud is just an asset. The true value lies in the method of application and the result obtained.
# 2 THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THE CLOTHING IS NOT LOW PRICE, IT IS NOT LESS HARD
In the world of globalization, rapid technological advancement and pronounced competitiveness, the focus of business is the focus on what is really important for your business, and outsourcing everything else. In this sense, IT infrastructure is difficult to occupy a “really important” place. IT infrastructure today is “implicit” and does not provide a competitive advantage. The way in which it is used can differentiate the company on the market, and that’s what business should deal with.
# 3 AND PUBLIC AND PRIVATE, TJ. HYBRID OBLAK IS AN EXPRESSION REALITY
At least in the next five to ten years. It will not be obvious that all applications go over to the public cloud, as was announced a few years ago with pompous announcement. For many reasons, your own infrastructure may be preferred: control, performance, regulation, long-term lower TCO for predictable consumption applications.
# 4 MIGRATION MUST AVOID CROSSING FROM SIMPLE, LESS OF BITNESS APPLICATIONS
This reduces business risk and allows employees to get used to the new environment.
# 5 CLOSE TO CLOUD, EVEN POSTEPEN, SHOULD BE PLANNED
Transition to the cloud means we have even less control than before. And that’s all right. You just need to get acquainted with the new environment – management portal, monitoring, way of controlling costs. Additionally, it is necessary to change the approach and workflow process so that the cloud can be successfully accepted by the company.
# 6 NOT ALL THE COMBATS OF A BIRTH SID
So far, everyone has heard of the famous cloud-based cloud models: IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. Within these models there are countless variations, depending on the provider. Choose according to the needs.
# 7 SECOND INNOVATION, YOU USE
Another beauty of the cloud is that the provider not only takes care of the updating and updating of hardware and software that provide basic service, but also continuously publishes new services (eg AI algorithms, noslc bases, …) that are ready for your use “per click “. Everything and you are an IT company, it is difficult to follow the dynamics of an AWS innovation. And what only companies that are not focused on IT can expect?
# 8 LEARNING AND MINOR CONTROL MAY TOGETHER TO LATE
We’ve all heard a horror story about enormous AWS accounts at the end of the month. The problem is that we mainly plan to migrate existing applications and services to the cloud, but we are thinking a little about what we will do after that. Otherwise, one of the main challenges in today’s IT is the lack of visibility, centralization and, therefore, manageability. In the cloud world this problem is even more pronounced. Therefore, tools for monitoring exploitation and cost control should be used.
# 9 CLOUD IS SAFE FROM THE SINGLE DATA CENTER INFRASTRUCTURE
At least in most cases. Logic is simple – cloud providers have much better technical expertise and greater experience. Due to the large number of users and the inevitable incidents they had, their system evolved and “strengthened” more than the data center of any company could.
# 10 CLOUD IS NOT AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT NIGHT
The concept of utility computing was created in the early 1960s. At that time, techniques of “time sharing” and process virtualization on Mainframe computers were developed and improved. In the early 1970s we already had commercial use of virtual machines on the IBM S / 370 computers. So the cloud stands on the “shoulders of the giant,” ie. the mainframe era, as well as researchers and engineers who developed it.
