Cloud Infrastructure Management

Running a business often requires you to become a jack-of-all-trades. But some trades are just better left to the specialists. Take, for instance, the management of cloud infrastructure and services.

Managing your company’s cloud infrastructure in-house takes from the time and resources you would otherwise use to grow your business. So, how can you best deal with cloud computing services in your organization?

In the sections below, we tell you how and why you should outsource cloud infrastructure

To understand what cloud infrastructure management is, you must first understand what cloud infrastructure is.

Cloud infrastructure is simply the tools and processes needed to build a cloud. These include hardware and software components such as servers, storage devices, networking equipment, and virtualization resources.

Cloud infrastructure management is, therefore, the setting up, configuration, monitoring, securing, and optimization of cloud infrastructure components.

At Tru Technical Partners, we use various cloud infrastructure management tools to offer the following cloud maintenance services for your business:

  1. Provisioning and configuration: we install and configure the hardware and software components needed for cloud computing.
  2. Active monitoring: we check cloud system status, deliver instant alerts and notifications on email and mobile, and create analysis reports.
  3. Cost and performance optimization: we proactively monitor costs and performance of cloud infrastructure to maximize its return on investment (ROI).
  4. Security: we implement policies, technologies, controls, and services to protect cloud infrastructure from security threats and constantly monitor for cyber threats.

According to the Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud Report, the top cloud initiative for enterprises in 2020 was cloud cost optimization. And it has been for the last four years.

Cost optimization is, however, not the only cloud infrastructure-related problem businesses face. The Flexera report also found that of the enterprises that participated in the study:

  • 83% identified security as a top challenge
  • 79% named governance as a leading issue
  • 56% said understanding the implications of software licensing costs was their main issue

Sounds familiar? Well, this is why cloud infrastructure management in cloud computing is crucial.

Outsourcing cloud management can have the following benefits to your business:

1. Saving your business money

Cloud infrastructure management services can save your business money in several ways. For one, training your IT team for optimal cloud performance and cost optimization can be costly.

With managed cloud services, you can swap costly IT departments with cloud computing infrastructure as a service (IAAS) experts. These professionals have the expertise and experience needed to optimize cloud infrastructure hence lowering operational costs and improving performance.

2. Data security

While cloud storage providers like AWS, Google, and Microsoft have baselines protections in place as security against hacks, data breaches, and cybercrimes, organizations also have a role to play.  Each of these providers do not provide end-point security protection, detection and will not remediate a cyber attack therefore, securing your data is critical.

Cloud infrastructure management in cloud computing allows for added security measures, including the proper configuration of native cloud security controls.

Moreover, you have assured peace of mind thanks to robust, real-time monitoring and visibility of your cloud environment which we refer to as “Eyes On The Screen” from our engineers within our SOC (Security Operation Center). This allows for continuous auditing and reporting and the immediate detection of security threats.

3. Ongoing cloud provider support

Managed cloud service providers have extensive knowledge of the different cloud providers in the market. Therefore, they can advise you on the best cloud provider for your business based on its demands and how to optimize its offerings.

Additionally, cloud infrastructure management tools improve flexibility and scalability meaning you can quickly and efficiently meet business demands and scale IT resources as demands change.
