Cloud computing is the core IT component of many organizations thanks to the web and mobile revolution. Given the increasing complexity of cloud operations, security concerns grow at the same if not the higher rate due to widening threat surface area. Human error is another key risk factor when it comes to cloud computing. If someone repeatedly works on the same thing over and over again, it’s destined to see a human error. Also, application development requires rapid resource deployment and scaling, the manual configuration process is no longer sufficient to respond timely. As such, cloud automation becomes a fundamental building of cloud computing.
What is Cloud Automation?
Cloud automation is a collection of tools and services that reduces the repetitive and time-consuming process of manual management of the cloud, including private, public, hybrid, multi-cloud, etc., which drains out the precious man hours of the IT team that should be deployed to more significant and high-value projects. The tasks of managing the cloud, such as allocating cloud resources, creating virtual networks, deploying cloud workloads, etc., are laborious and repetitive, which is doomed to see human error. That’s why cloud automation comes into play to automate the repetitive manual tasks. Orchestration allows the infrastructure team to convert normal processes into code, while automation performs the task without hustle. Cloud automation saves human resources and eliminates human errors, while facilitating IT teams to move up the ladder to work on more critical projects and enhancing team retention.
Infrastructure as Code
“Cloud automation categorizes computing resources for users to deploy remotely, and identify common configuration items such as VM where application components will be placed onto. All these items ultimately integrated to form an unified environment.
Cloud automation adds or removes workloads in the cloud, automatically scales the environments to improve resource consumption.
The inherent complexity of hybrid or multi-cloud environments is destined to result in human error. Cloud automation automates tasks of private cloud and facilitates integration with public cloud.
Rapid Resource Deployment
Application development requires rapid scaling and deployment of resources. Cloud automation enhances the reusability of resources, enabling various application development methods such as DevOps.
Monitoring and Analysis
Cloud automation provides comprehensive visibility of the consumption pattern of cloud resources. The insight allows organizations to project, plan and improve their consumption of resources.
Security and Compliance
Cloud automation enables quick risk assessment, and mitigation of vulnerabilities in real-time. The desired solution includes remediation functions to resolve issues at a click.
