Cloud Monitoring Best Practices Followed by Cloud Management Organizations

Cloud monitoring is a part of cloud management services rendered by organizations that provide cloud computing solutions. As a part of cloud monitoring, an organization would monitor websites, virtual machines, database, cloud storage and virtual network to ensure smooth functioning and to optimize performance. While cloud management is considered to be easier in a private cloud, an organization may provide you services to monitor private or hybrid clouds as well.

These best practices are identified by most organizations that provide cloud monitoring services:

1.Single Platform for on premise infrastructure and cloud monitoring

A lot of confusion is caused when we deal with too many tools. Cloud management companies are beginning to opt for tools which can unify the monitoring services. While on premise infrastructure is being optimized by IT teams for a long time, cloud monitoring brings in a new phase.

By integrating data from all the systems, businesses can achieve a greater level of optimization. This will be possible only in the cloud monitoring tools are created to be easily integrated into different environments.

2.Keeping an eye on end-user experience

One of the most valuable aspects of a business is to provide an excellent end-user experience. Cloud monitoring makes it possible for businesses to record the levels of customer satisfaction through various metrics.

Cloud management companies check for response time and enter it in the system as a threshold for customer experience. Alerts will be triggered if the system identifies a big difference in the data which can help the team handle problems quickly with the least impact on end-user experience.

3.Automate tasks

Automation is a necessity that we have all come to agree with. By automating the cloud monitoring tools to a certain extent, we can make the system more efficient. Automation also makes cloud management a lot smoother and optimizes the system for higher efficiency. It also helps the business keep up with configuration and security measures which are very important for the smooth functioning of the cloud.

4.Track your costs

Every business works towards increasing productivity and lowering costs. Cloud services can be easily scaled. This is why cloud monitoring should include the constant monitoring of the business’ activity on the cloud and the costs incurred by the organization for the cloud services.

Unlike on premise equipment, cloud cost organizations money even if the resources are idle. This is why the cloud management companies make it a best practice to set up alerts when the cloud services start exceeding the expected budget. By quickly responding to the alerts businesses can avoid unwanted increase in the cost of cloud services.

5.Long-Term Trends

Your cloud monitoring tools should be able to provide long term data so that businesses can look at data over a period of 6 months or a year. This data can be useful in identifying trends that can support business decisions with respect to the use of cloud services. It can also improve decision-making when it comes to customer experience.

6.Checking the tools for failure

On a final note, it is a best practice for cloud management companies to check the cloud monitoring tools for failure. The tools should be tested for their ability to alert the business and the IT teams so that immediate action can be taken to reduce any negative impact.

These best practices are kept in mind by most cloud management companies that provide cloud monitoring services. Not only do these practices ensure better optimization of the cloud services, but they also make sure that both the end users as well as the business enjoy a great user experience through their services.
