The cloud ecosystem and how start-ups can effectively manage it
The cloud is becoming the vehicle for next-generation digital business and has emerged as the go-to platform for start-ups looking to thrive in today's highly dynamic and competitive market. Traditional on-premises IT solutions require higher investments in hardware, software licenses, maintenance, and training costs, which makes them ill-suited for start-ups.
On the other hand, cloud solutions offer start-ups many benefits like quicker infrastructure provisioning and pay-as-you-go pricing models, with which start-ups can scale their infrastructure up and down easily depending on the demographic of their user base.
Adopting the multi-cloud approach
A multi-cloud strategy allows start-ups to pick the best services from each cloud provider and helps mitigate availability risks by distributing apps across different cloud platforms. A multi-cloud approach also avoids vendor lock-in, where a customer depends on a single cloud provider for products and services, and cannot switch without substantial costs. Additionally, most cloud providers offer a free version to get started, and startups can try these from different providers to figure out what works best for them.
In today’s dynamic, digitized environment, slow is the new down, and startups need to be able to maintain a high availability and fast response times for their services and websites no matter where the end-user is. It’s critical to analyze how end-users interact with services and websites in real-time to address challenges proactively and detect bottlenecks quickly, so corrective action can be taken before end-users are affected.
This can be achieved by gaining visibility into key infrastructure KPIs and monitoring every tier of an organization’s application stack, however, using multiple tools to monitor availability and response times can be a challenge. A single tool that provides a holistic view into each layer of the IT infrastructure, with full-stack monitoring and instant alerts for proactively resolving issues before end-users are impacted, is the need of the hour.
