Currently, most organizations use cloud resources in one way or another. Someone has transferred or is planning to transfer the entire ground infrastructure to the cloud, and there are those who have a hybrid cloud environment.
The use of cloud resources has its own specificity, which differs from the situation when the organization keeps its IT infrastructure on the ground (on-prem). What are the main difficulties in using cloud resources:
1. There is no expertise in the configuration and management of cloud resources. All major providers have their own approach to building a cloud platform and resource management system, starting from network interaction and ending with a set of services that can be used
2. Security. In fact, this point is a derivative of point 1, although usually in an enterprise the functions of administration and management of computing resources, data storage resources and IT security services are separated. Lack of expertise in setting up and managing security tools poses no less problems than for ground infrastructure
3. Cost optimization. Calculating the cost of cloud resources is a separate topic. Cloud providers provide different options of resources that can be rented, with different performance and accordingly at different prices. It is important to choose the right resources and use them optimally, increasing or decreasing resources as needed
To solve all the problems listed above, NetApp offers a software product called NetApp Cloud Optimization Service with Spot by NetApp. With the use of this tool, customers at any stage of using cloud resources (already using or just planning) will receive comprehensive recommendations on architecture, security settings, optimization of cloud resources, etc.
