Patterns for Cloud Computing
As IT environments increase in complexity, it takes more skills and time to build, design, test, and maintain your IT systems. But when IT teams spend most of their time maintaining existing applications, there's little left for innovation or increasing agility.
But thanks to cloud computing and "patterns of expertise" -- packaged, proven processes and knowledge -- those issues no longer have to be of concern.
In this solution guide, explore how patterns of expertise within a cloud environment can help IT managers decrease the time and effort it takes to maintain current assets, as well as:
- Easily consolidate different servers, storage, and applications
- Scale systems up or down automatically
- Increase the consistency of your environment
