How to manage cloud computing?


Cloud management is the process of maintaining administrative control of cloud computing services. As companies increasingly buy into the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) business model and deploy more applications, there is an increased need for structured management processes. An organization must constantly monitor the cloud environment to facilitate workflow automation, increase security and reduce expenses. 

Why is cloud management so important?

The use of clouds is already considered a standard in modern IT infrastructures. Our century is the age of information which is one of the most valuable resources. Entrepreneurs are becoming more aware of it, which is why they try to manage data as quickly and efficiently as possible. It largely depends on whether a company will be successful or not.

With the rise of cloud drive applications in the market, many people opt to use more than one at a time. Multi-cloud drive applications allow you to access multiple cloud storage services under a single infrastructure. Using these applications allows you to provide more flexibility for which cloud services your company decides to use and it reduces the dependence on using a single provider. They also make the migration of data from one cloud to another an easy and seamless process. These applications are also beneficial as they lower the risk of decreased productivity, e.g if one of the cloud services fails your company can continue to operate with other platforms within the same environment.

All employees should have uninterrupted access to all most important data. This way, many procedures are improving and the risk of mistakes and other errors or misunderstandings is reduced. At the same time, all most important documents, etc. are protected against loss, undesirable modification, damage, or erasing. Data gathered in one place is also easier to analyze. Thus, it is possible to obtain a lot of valuable information which should form the basis of every decision-making process.

What is essential in cloud management?

A major part of cloud management are advanced IT tools. Thanks to the API (Application Programming Interface), it is possible to connect all used applications and systems cooperating with the cloud. This way, companies can create advanced environments for processing and network services.

Another crucial element is the service panel. It must be intuitive to use so it could give easy access to all most principal functions of the systems. Cloud services should be available to employees of various departments, not only IT specialists. The panel also allows to create new cloud environments and expand them by adding new databases, assigning new users, etc.

The cloud environment should be created by a team of experts who will be able to organize it in such a way that it can be conveniently managed. Even the most innovative tool is ineffective if it cannot be fully functional. Nowadays, every developing institution should focus on creating a working digital environment in cooperation with IT professionals.
