Organizations that are using cloud are increasingly looking to optimize hybrid workloads across on-premise and external cloud systems. This style of architecture raises issues around cloud management that demand a well-thought-out strategy. A well-implemented cloud management strategy allows users to maintain control over public, private and hybrid clouds.

A good strategy considers areas such as the self-service capability for resource provisioning; workflow automation; analysis of workloads; and the use of metrics to ensure optimum performance. A successful cloud management strategy also relies on skilled staff, knowledgeable in the nuances of private and public cloud technologies and capable of managing hybrid cloud workloads across multiple platforms. We at eSoft helps organizations in evolving the right strategy in managing clouds.
