THE IMPORTANCE OF CLOUD CAPACITY MANAGEMENT AND HOW TO DO IT
Christopher Tozzi, SearchCloudComputing, Oct. 9, 2020
“One of the cloud computing model’s biggest benefits is that it supports highly flexible and dynamic resource usage. Cloud users consume as many or as few resources as needed, and they have the freedom to adjust their consumption as needs fluctuate.
That does not mean that cloud platforms automatically optimize resource allocation. For most types of cloud services, it’s left to the user to determine how many resources cloud workloads will require at any given moment. AWS Aurora is one attempt to solve this problem; it automatically allocates resources based on workload need.”
STATIC VERSUS DYNAMIC CLOUD MIGRATION
David Linthicum, InfoWorld, Oct. 9, 2020
“Most efficiency issues arise from dynamic versus static migration approaches and tools. Most people who currently do cloud migrations gravitate toward the specific processes, approaches, and migration tool suites that worked for past projects. This static approach to cloud migration forces a specific set of processes and tools onto a wide variety of migration projects and problem domains. The misuse of specific processes and tools as generic solutions often leads to failure.
Core to this issue is our drive to find a specific suite of tools and technology bundles that the industry considers best-of-breed, and our desire to leverage best practices. We in IT love to follow the crowd: ‘I read about these tools and this approach that worked for Joe and Jane and Bob at companies kind of like mine, so they’ll work for me, too.’ We make the erroneous assumption that we remove risk by not making our own choices, even if the choices are situational.”
HYBRID IT GIVES WAY TO HYBRID POWER
Mark Bowen, Intelligent CIO, Oct. 9, 2020
“Given the changes brought on by the impact of the pandemic, hybrid IT has become the talk of the street. Business agility and flexibility are the new craze, but more importantly a vital trend to get ourselves back to reality.
Regardless of how grounded a business was pre-pandemic, hybrid cloud is offering a safe place to land in the throes of Business Continuity. According to IDC, more than 90% of organizations worldwide will rely on a combination of data centers, private clouds or public clouds to run their businesses.”
