Managing cloud infrastructure post-migration
November 20, 2018 / ANASIA D'MELLO
As part of Information Age’s Cloud and Backup Month, we are providing three CTO guides over the coming weeks on cloud and backup: cloud migration best practice, how to manage cloud infrastructure and cloud predictions. The first guide focused on cloud migration tips. Organisations are migrating to the cloud for digital transformation (or digitisation) efforts — they are doing this to keep pace with growing customer demands and an increasing need to scale services. One of the key lessons from the first guide surrounded automation. “Automate as much as possible when in the cloud; try to abstract the provisioning and use agnostic tools so that you can move workloads between cloud providers until you get a feel for which provider is best for that workload,” said Neil Briscoe, CTO at Cloud Gateway.
