Businesses are moving their legacy systems to the cloud in order to optimize IT costs. The legacy systems, including the mainframe infrastructures and old school datacentres, have become obsolete due to high maintenance costs and performance issues. The major players in the cloud service segment, that we can think of, are listed below-
From setting up Content Delivery Network (CDN) to working with Relational Database Services(RDS), we do it all in the Cloud.
Auto-Scaling: With automated scaling, resources can be scaled up or down using proper scaling tools (e.g., Load Balancer) within the cloud platform as per the requirements and demands. Thus, more resources will be utilized only when it is needed. Resources will also be scaled down automatically when the requirement recedes. This process not only saves costs but also ensures optimum performance.
Alerting and Monitoring Automation: The alert mechanism provides automated alert notifications about CPU percentage, system state, network availability, performance speed, etc. With automated monitoring, automatic actions are taken based on the alerts received, like automated scaling up or scaling down.
VM Maintenance: This mechanism facilitates configuring, setting up, monitoring, resizing and tracking an environment within the Virtual Machine.
Cloud Security: We can ensure security within the cloud by employing cloud security software like AWS Shield. Such software monitors performance, protects the cloud network from malware and external hacking, keeps track of every sign in and sign out, etc.
DevOps Implementation: In order to manage continuous release and continuous integration, we always suggest implementing DevOps.
Content Delivery Network (CDN): This distributed network facilitates web content delivery based on the user’s geographical location, the web page origin and the content delivery server.
