Use Cases in Cloud Infrastructure Management

Well, with a snappy title like that,  I expect I am now all alone in this room. 😉

My cloud research this year will be focused on use cases in two areas: consumption and service. I will delve into the tasks involved, and how commercially available tooling addresses those tasks.

Consumption and Cost Management

  • Application cost performance review
  • Cost and capacity planning

Service Management

  • Service level evaluation and planning
  • Availability and fault recovery planning
  • Operations Automation

Evaluation Areas:

  • Desired outcome of the activity
  • Business and infrastructure impact of the activity
  • Roles involved
  • Tasks involved
  • What problems/aspects of the activity are addressed by a vendor solution
  • How a given solution contributes to the activity- what it does, how it works
  • Overview of tech/architecture/interfaces/data
  • Vendor’s target market, pricing, strategy
