Building a cloud infrastructure is a complex process. If you are new to this topic, we recommend that you start by reading our introductory article on Cloud Migration first. Understanding the role of application discovery in cloud migration and generating cloud baselines is also important before attempting to build your infrastructure in the cloud. It is even more important to design a migration plan prior to the actual migration activity.
Performance and configuration baselines are critical in understanding the current state of your application environment prior to migrating to the cloud. Without generating cloud baselines, it would be difficult for you to measure your cloud migration success.
Most organizations understand the importance of having a concrete plan and strategy when migrating to the cloud. In the article we've published recently, we've recommended starting your cloud migration journey by setting business objectives and establishing key performance indicators (KPIs). These two play a significant role in defining your cloud migration success. However, establishing KPIs and benchmarking metrics will be an uphill task if you don't have a complete understanding of all of your IT assets, applications, services, and the interdependencies among all of them. For this very reason, we've introduced the Discover stage as part of the cloud migration strategy we've been utilizing in IT-Conductor.
Security in any cloud environment is a shared responsibility between the organization and the cloud provider. The distribution of responsibilities between the two would depend on the cloud model implemented (i.e. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), services in use, and applicable security compliance requirements. But on a more general note, the cloud provider is responsible for securing the cloud itself while the customer is responsible for securing their data within the cloud.
Welcome to the Q1-2022 edition of IT-Conductor latest automation features. As part of our long-term plan to grow our self-service offerings, we have introduced Service Catalog to enable customers to easily create multiple requests for various service bundles. This makes for a faster, more convenient, and guided service delivery.
We also keep growing our list of automated cloud migration scenarios using IT-Conductor™ to include HANA and MSSQL automated migration. You can leverage the cloud-agnostic, automation capability of IT-Conductor to automate the migration of your applications and databases from on-premises to the cloud.
Building observable systems require understanding the concept of observability and its three pillars—metrics, logs, and traces. However, implementing a solution based solely on the three pillars is not enough. There is more to observability that goes beyond gathering data and making sense of it.
Welcome to the Q3-2021 edition of IT-Conductor latest automation features. In view of customers operational and automation requirements, we are excited to unveil the latest functionalities with relevance in operations, reporting, automation, monitoring, and ITSM. These are features customers will find easy to use yet obtain a remarkable result.
Cloud computing has gained popularity as more and more organizations realize the business value it brings to the table. As cloud adoption becomes mainstream, it is no longer a question for organizations “if” they need to migrate to the cloud, rather, “what” their cloud-first strategy would be.
Welcome to the Q2-2021 edition of IT-Conductor latest automation features. We are excited to share with you a few of what we’ve been working on recently in the area of automation, operations, and cloud monitoring.
