After cloud migration comes professional operation: Ultimately, a complex cloud infrastructure requires expert multi-cloud management that encompasses all cloud services. However, this often presents IT departments with major challenges. You need to orchestrate resources such as virtual servers and applications into different clouds, giving users enough freedom to control costs and governance requirements. Conventional tools for multi-cloud management do not go far enough. The new approach: a multi-cloud framework that meets all requirements.
Conventional cloud management tools are layered over all private and public cloud services used in the company. Nonetheless, this layer works more like a control unit and partially limits the use of functions and features. A management tool thus represents the lowest common denominator. Everything that takes place outside of the tools is out of control, which is a disadvantage – especially for developers who want to use a whole range of services in a public cloud for their work. If the cloud management tool restricts access, a shadow IT environment is built up again without the knowledge of the central company IT, despite the management tool, which should actually be captured with the tool. The idea of using the strengths of the individual cloud platforms is therefore counteracted by a tool approach.
