It’s probable that you have been reassured by the wealth of information at the Microsoft Trust Centre or Amazon Cloud Security Site, of just how secure and safe their Public Cloud offerings have become, and in many respects they have addressed many clients concerns. For the most part the design, resilience and scale of the platform far exceeds the budgets of any client.
So what’s the problem?
There are some great automation and management solutions designed to help you manage cloud infrastructure. Offerings such as Microsoft Operation Management Suite that provides visibility and control across public clouds and hybrid environments. Infrastructure and application automation tools such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible, which can help you achieve speed, scale and consistency by automating configuration and systems management – I could go on!
Keep your Gold Safe!
Your choice will come down to ease of management, ease of deployment and cost. It is possible that you have not had to manage these devices in the past so understanding what you should deploy early in your cloud journey is critical.
Vendors such as Barracuda recognised this early on and have extended their range of products to include cloud specific options that are quick to deploy and easy to manage from within the Azure Market place.
