INCIDENTS IN THE CLOUD?
Yes, Quite a Bit, and Here's How to Overcome Them!
Cloud eliminated a lot of operations issues inherent to traditional data centers. But it hasn’t eliminated all incidents and problems. Resolving those, well, actually…has become even more difficult…
- What Could Go Wrong in the Cloud?
A lot! To name a few: overutilization of cloud resources, connectivity issues, database performance or non-conformant data. All driven by changes which can have undesired (and costly) impacts.
- How Should We Address Cloud Issues?
We need to find those changes responsible for incidents and identify root cause fast to know where to roll back to (when possible) or to quickly resolve issues.
- Can We Prevent Issues in Cloud?
To prevent incidents early-on, we need to recognize changes and take action before any symptoms of an issue or an incident is even reported.
- Migrating to Cloud Complicates Matters Even More!
Migration to the Cloud is challenging. It takes time to build an architecture that allows for full rollbacks. Automation does not happen at once. Configuration standardization happens gradually. Meanwhile, you need to manage environment consistency, detect unauthorized changes and maintain granular visibility into each server instance and device.
