Cloud Management Platforms

Cloud management platforms allow organisations to monitor and manage their cloud infrastructure. This includes performance and scalability as also costs. A reliable cloud management platform will also be integrated with billing systems, IT systems, platforms, reporting and monitoring tools.

Enterprises must determine what they would like to monitor and then select the best solution. They can choose specialized tools to tackle specific issues or a complete suite that covers all aspects of cloud computing.

Multi-cloud management platforms usually have a unified user interface that allows companies to manage their diverse environments using a single interface. They also aid in optimizing resources by preventing the use of software or hardware. These platforms automatise processes and reduce the need for human intervention.

AppDynamics is one of the most popular cloud management solutions. Other options include CloudBolt and Morpheus Data. The first two are self-service interfaces that allow organisations to deploy an image of their system and provide billing and metering as well as some degree of optimisation of workloads by implementing policies. CloudBolt can manage operations across multiple clouds and offers a cost management tool. CloudStack can handle thousands of servers. It has a graphical user interface and supports massive scale of infrastructure.

Other tools worth looking into include Terraform, an open-source cloud configuration management tool, and nOps which provides SaaS tools to manage cloud infrastructures, both private and public. The former allows teams of all sizes to build and update cloud architectures on stable environments, link them to version control, save remote state securely and use a wide range of plugins to automate and integrate. The latter offers a single dashboard with monitoring, analytics and a granular look at the cloud environment. This helps to reduce cost, performance, and availability.
