New eBook! Controlling Cloud Costs with Capacity Management
Syncsort has released a new eBook, “Controlling Cloud Costs with Capacity Management.” For many organizations the move to a cloud-first IT strategy has already taken place. In fact, today’s typical IT department has a minority of their apps and platforms residing in on-premises data centers.
Capacity management has been used for decades to optimize resources on-premises. Now, as cloud environments transform IT, this practice is being extended to enable holistic planning, management, and optimization of all your resources — both cloud and on-premises — in one place and at the same time.
Effectively managing cloud capacity to avoid extra spending must be a focus for today’s companies. Most of the organizations are switching to the cloud and enjoying its low-cost advantages, but at the same time, they need to establish processes and controls to ensure you are efficiently utilizing all the benefits of the cloud, which means capacity planners will need to update their skills. Today, environments are far more complex and there is an increasing need for capacity planners to keep up-to-date with how the cloud has changed the IT landscape.
In this eBook, we cover:
- What cloud capacity management is
- Why capacity management is different for cloud environments
- Understanding resource usage in the cloud
- The importance of reporting
With the increasing use of cloud environments, it’s key to ensure you’re managing and optimizing your cloud resources as you would with on-premises resources. Across both cloud and on-premises resources, capacity management informs forecasting and planning by helping you determine the capacity levels for your environment.
