Even if all or part of your infrastructure is in the cloud, you need to monitor it.Pretty much every business is using the cloud in some form these days. In fact, 93 percent of businesses say they use cloud services, and many anticipate investing in it more.
According to new research, enterprises expect to spend about 26% more on cloud services this year, which outpaces spending increases on overall IT. And it makes sense: the cloud provides unparalleled business advantages such as scalability and agility. But with increased cloud usage comes a greater need to monitor performance.
That’s where cloud monitoring comes in. You can’t afford to have delayed web application response times, under-resourced workloads, downtime, or data breaches. Cloud monitoring helps you observe response times, availability, resource consumption levels, performance, as well as predict potential issues.
Cloud monitoring is the process of reviewing, monitoring and managing the operational workflow and processes within a cloud-based IT asset or infrastructure. It is the use of manual or automated IT monitoring and management techniques to ensure that a cloud infrastructure or platform performs optimally.
Besides that, cloud monitoring is primarily part of cloud security and management processes, and it is generally implemented through automated monitoring software that provides central access and control over cloud infrastructure. Cloud administrators can review the operational status and health of any cloud-based device or component.
In addition to monitoring and ensuring cloud infrastructure/solution/service availability, cloud monitoring data also helps in evaluating the performance of the entire infrastructure on a modular level. Properties such as server up time and response rate report can help in evaluating customer/user experience.
