Public Cloud Providers – Is this the Right Way to Go?
Public cloud is a great option for many firms. It offers excellent integration, a healthy partner ecosystem, and millions of trained engineers who are certified. Here are some issues we’ve seen in when using public cloud which we outlined in video called the disadvantages of cloud computing.
Lack of Fully Implemented DevOps Strategy
Some firms have made the move into public cloud after a fully managed environment from a hosting company. While DevOps is the way of the future, moving into public cloud with no full operational model, trouble ticketing system, or lacking key expertise such as backup engineers have caused numerous issues. These issues tend to be dealt with by hiring consultants to fill in the gaps which cause public cloud cost savings to diminish.
Unlimited Scaling + Unlimited Bills
While nearly infinite scaling is a dream, left uncheck has caused firms to have wildly high cloud computing bills. Entire practices and software categories have been created around cloud cost management in an effort to reduce OpEx spending that exceeds in some cases the past OpEx and CapEx spending that firms faced. It’s important to develop systems that can scale back and return resources to the cloud provider when not needed.
Many public clouds implement open source software which allow cloud instances to be portable. Modifying open source packages means that those instances cannot be easily shifted internally or to other clouds making it to leave a vendor in the future. Some of these issues can be mitigated through the use of cloud orchestration software which can be costly if purchased commercially.
