Building AI Optimization Into Your Cloud Computing Infrastructure.
Cloud optimization is an essential part of every cloud transformation story. It describes the process of intelligence-driven selection and assignment of the right resources to a specific workload or application. A business investing in the process of cloud transformation achieves optimal efficiency when workload performance, compliance, and cost are correctly and continually balanced against the best-fit infrastructure on a real-time basis. On the other hand, some businesses leave their apps running at full level and only bother to tune these apps for performance when they’ve failed to meet SLAs, or as a response to downtime. Legacy businesses also tend to overprovision, just in order to pre-buy peace of mind.
Cloud optimization is definitely not just a discretionary expense, especially when a serious business disruption occurs—it allows CloudOps and DevOps teams to properly control resource allocation and application performance. It helps your business optimize your cloud value-per-spend while delivering best-case app performance. When this happens, the CFO and Finance department get what they want, and your management team can be confident that they don’t need to overspend to get the job done. For this, a clear awareness of cloud costs vs. cloud value is one way to start. Establishing a practical cloud governance structure is what follows next, and implementing the right strategies, technologies, and practices closes the loop.

Cloud consumption means either using a cloud application or consuming cloud infrastructure. Most consumption calculators consider the following types of resources, which help in arriving at detailed consumption analytics—compute, networking, and storage—and their consumption is metered in GB against the calendar assumptions of 24 hours in a day and 31 days in a month for each resource. Value Point offers you highly accurate detailed consumption analytics as a service, allowing your team to focus on developing your core business.
Consolidation of workloads is the activity of combining multiple operations into fewer platforms with a reduced infrastructure and making better use of existing resources. It is now a standard practice that companies engage in as part of their new cloud strategy—where a priority-based streamlining and simplification of processes is a digital transformation mandate. Workload consolidation unites multiple computerized operations onto fewer platforms, replacing separate purpose-built hardware machines with a smaller, more trimmed-down foundation of general-purpose compute technologies.
As more businesses enter the wave of migrating their stems, applications and data to the cloud, we realize that software applications are also becoming increasingly complex. To help your business cope with this pressure. To maintain high availability and rapid access to your business data and applications, your systems need to be continually monitored and get better with each failure. Value Point offers you automated service uptime managed services in which, each time an issue is resolved, a root cause analysis is done to identify what the next technology enhancements will be.
Rehost, commonly referred to as “lift and shift”, lifts servers or applications from your current hosting environment and shifts them to an infrastructure in the public cloud (IaaS) with very little or no modification to be made to the applications from their existing state. Value Point recommends rehosting, especially for aspiring first-time cloud infrastructure migrants, as this option speeds up your cloud migration process, yielding quicker benefits—where you could save up to 30% operating costs without optimizing apps for the cloud.
