cloud-governance

Let's talk about how you can use governance to manage cloud resources and properly size your environment with automation. Cloud governance is a set of practices that help users work in the cloud the way they want, that operations are efficient, and that the user can monitor and correct operations as needed. Simply put, cloud governance is a carefully crafted set of rules and protocols applied by companies operating in the cloud to enhance data security, manage risk, and ensure business continuity. Cloud governance, or a set of rules for cloud operations, is a must for companies to improve security and compliance, manage risk, and optimize resources and skills.

cloud-computing-trend

The world moves fast and we have to keep up.

It is important to remember that cloud computing is an ever-changing industry and there will be consistent new developments.

This is a glimpse of what looks like Cloud Computing as a Macro trend.

馃攳 Problem:#

Data need to be kept on-site in order for it to be stored and accessed.

馃挕 Solution:#

Cloud computing enables us to store, manage, and process critical information and data to be accessed from any location by using just an internet connection. This allow to gain exposure to cloud computing equipment and study the effects of location on server latencies.

open-source-security-tools

Infrastructure-as-code (IaC) is revolutionizing the face of modern IT infrastructure, making it more secure, cost-effective and performance efficient.

As a result, the adoption of IaC technology is rapidly increasing in the cloud space. Organizations have begun expanding their capability of versioning, provisioning and deploying cloud environments. It has berthed technologies like Terraform, Azure Resource Manager templates, AWS Cloud Formation templates, OpenFaaS YML, and more.

Previously, setting up an infrastructure required stacking tangible servers, data center to house hardware, configuring network connection, and whatnot. But now, all these are possible with trends such as cloud computing, where the processes take fewer times.

IaC is one of the key components of this growing trend, and let鈥檚 understand a bit what it is really all about.

Let's deep dive on the best tools to scan Infrastructure-as-code for vulnerabilities:

Master Terraform with Brainboard

Delivering a cloud infrastructure shouldn鈥檛 take months but hours. In this article, I will share our step-by-step process on how you can optimize your process for creating your cloud infrastructure.

Infrastructure-as-code (IaC) enables managing and provisioning infrastructure through code instead of manual processes. IaC is crucial for both Cloud Architects and DevOps teams. It gives them the possibility to manage infrastructure components, such as networks and load balancers and enables test applications in production-like environments early in the development cycle. Terraform is the most used open-source platform to do so.

Let鈥檚 deep dive into whom should use Terraform and why Brainboard boosts your Terraform knowledge to the next level.

FinOps

When it comes to optimizing cloud FinOps, costs and needs are directly proportional to each other; the higher the cloud costs, the greater the need for FinOps in the organization. FinOps is essentially a cultural practice followed by an organization that allows them to manage cloud costs using ownership, accountability, and a collaborative model. FinOps enables all operations teams to access the real-time data they need to influence their prices and make intelligent choices that ultimately drive successful cloud cost optimization without impacting the end product's performance, speed, or quality.

Cloud-Native-Architectures

The term "cloud computing" has emerged as a generic term for the various tools and techniques required by software developers to create, deploy, and maintain modern software architectures on a cloud infrastructure. For development teams, Cloud culture is a new way of building scalable architectures that decentralizes decision making, so you can act faster. With a cloud strategy, organizations of any size can initiate the cultural and technological changes needed to meet new demands and accelerate business innovation. Cloud-Native technologies development is an approach to developing, building, and delivering cloud infrastructures using modern cloud services.

Hybrid-Cloud.png

The best hybrid cloud strategies focus on combining the business value of private, public, and managed clouds, including the right orchestration and automation to bridge the gap. A hybrid cloud approach combines the advantages of public cloud services, enterprise-controlled private clouds, and the once-dominant dedicated hosting services. New approaches to hybrid cloud architecture include public cloand providers offering hybrid cloud platforms, and extending public cloud services to private data centers. A hybrid cloud approach maximizes efficiency by giving you the flexibility to deploy your data needs to the public cloud, private cloud, or on-premises resources as needed.
