A fundamental step in your multi-cloud strategy is to maintain control over the infrastructure resources and services. The risk of losing control or management due to the ease of access can easily lead to cloud sprawl. Furthermore the on demand nature of cloud services may compound this effect.
Cloud Health is a cloud service management platform, providing business intelligence across multi-cloud environments.
Cloud Health enable customers to leverage SLA metrics to:
manage cloud cost,
Management Tools and Analytics
Capacity management in a multi-cloud environment can be challenging due to the ability to deploy workload using self-service portals. Cloud management services allow you:
to develop faster
scale instantly and
Our unique approach to cloud management gives you the right set of tools and analytics to control your cloud operations.
Your multi-cloud strategy must include a plan for cost management to avoid overspending. Optimising your cloud operations for your specific business outcomes eliminates waste and keeps costs low. Our data-centric approach to infrastructure coupled with your ability to leverage real-time data about your usage will assist to optimise the cost of your operations.
Avoid surprises on your bill by implementing policies for cloud cost management to monitor all of your cloud charges, and increase accountability with budgets, cost allocation, and chargebacks. A budget enables you to track your actual cloud spend against your planned spend. After you have set a budget amount of your respective multi-cloud environment, we can assist you with alert threshold rules that are used to trigger email notifications. Budget alert emails help you stay informed about how your spend is tracking against your budget. You can also use budgets to automate cost control responses.
Data recovery should have multiple sources to recover from. The data loss scenario, Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) for the affected data source will determine if the data should be recovered from a backup or failed over to replicated instance.
Cloud Backups will be stored for its retention period so that data can be recovered from it if required. Cloud recovery is the process of restoring data that has been lost, accidentally deleted or corrupted, over the Internet or network, from a cloud-based system.
Cloud Disaster Recovery refers to policy driven procedures to restore data, infrastructure and systems on a larger scale if a natural disaster or a human-made disaster takes place. Disaster Recovery could also include failover to systems that data is replicated to.
Monitoring & SLA Alignment
Cloud monitoring opens a window into how your cloud service is functioning. There is tremendous value in knowing what takes place within your cloud hosted service. You should first determine which metrics mean the most to your organisation.
Key indicators of ecosystem health:
Performance (throughput, latency, memory usage, response time, user capacity)
Reliability (uptime and downtime, average time between failures, time to repair); and
Security (DDoS attack resistance, blast radii, access control, data protections).
Monitor user experience. Services should exist to improve user outcomes
