Tackling public cloud issues

As businesses continue to navigate through today's unpredictable economy, the public cloud holds a lot of promise. By implementing this technology, organizations can take advantage of on-demand next-generation applications and large cloud storage capacity, while leveraging a pay-as-you-go pricing model.

Although the public cloud can be advantageous when implemented correctly, if the hosted structures are deployed without proper planning, vulnerabilities can cause severe repercussions. Decision-makers often seek reassurance in the public cloud's ability to not compromise security, protect sensitive data and intellectual property and maintain quality customer service while providing a competitive advantage, according to a CloudTweaks report.

Businesses need to ensure they have real-time visibility into the cloud infrastructure. If companies fail to do so, they will not be able to manage what they don't see, and won't be able to secure what they can't manage, the report said.

Defining end-to-end service delivery is an important part of ensuring a successful cloud deployment. Additionally, decision-makers need to create robust service-level agreements that tackle governance issues and security concerns, according to a SYS-CON Media report.
