Hybrid Cloud Management is a tool, or a series of tools, that integrate into different cloud platforms to allow the management of costs, performances and security aspects
Today in Europe the average of cloud providers used by companies is almost 5
Managing multiple cloud services and internal data centers involve many critical issues for IT administrators, like the need to master different management tools, containers and orchestration platforms from different cloud providers. The multicloud management platforms are able to shield this complexity through unified management consoles that streamline the work load allocations and provisioning.
Initially developed by telco companies and service providers, allows you to quickly enable or activate customers with the services they need, developing an ideal interface between the users of a service and the underlying technologies. The request for a service, such as for example access to an application, is automatically translated into the series of steps (allocation of virtual machines, network bandwidth, storage space, installations) required to initiate the service. In the logic of self-service, the users have a catalog of IT services they can select according to the department or job function, and therefore the ability to activate the services on their own without worrying about the learning complex technical details.
Monitoring and measurements
Among the key features of multicloud platforms there is the ability to control the internal infrastructure and third-party services providing the measurements needed to verify the contractual SLAs, but also to evaluate the consumption of services in relation to the associated costs. The consumption control helps to optimize resource utilization by moving workloads among diverse clouds and on premise infrastructures. In the case of service providers and large organizations, these capabilities can be integrated with accounting systems that invoice the services or overturn the costs on corporate departments. This is extremely critical since IT becomes more and more an integral part of the product and corporate business.
