Management important for private cloud deployments

Before beginning a migration to cloud computing, it is important for chief information officers to understand where a company is starting from. This helps them make changes during an implementation so the decision-makers can stay on course and ensure a successful deployment, according to a Computerworld report.

On the road to a private cloud computing environment, for example, CIOs need to stay in control. Too often, businesses are impulsive about migrating to these systems and, as a result, the cloud-based environments come out messy and unproductive. An important aspect of management is resource optimization, the news source reported.

Companies should no view virtual environments as one-size-fits-all. Instead, decision-makers should note the areas in the private cloud that may need more capacity than others, while ensuring that virtual machines don't bottleneck, Computerworld report. While this may sound difficult, CIOs that have a firm grasp on their management will be able to handle it.

According to Forrester Research, the private cloud computing market will generate revenues exceeding $15 billion by 2020. As more organizations deploy the services, decision-makers should remain in control of management to ensure successful implementations.
