Red Hat - Deploying in a public cloud environment
Public cloud environments are here to stay. They promise nearly unlimited capacity, potentially attractive costs stemming from large-scale infrastructures and associated operational best practices, and a pay-as-you-go pricing model that can make up-front server purchases a thing of the past. But, especially for enterprises, effectively and safely using public cloud environments involves more than whipping out a credit card and clicking some buttons on a website.
Many different considerations go into developing a cloud strategy that meets these objectives — and then implementing, operating, and developing the associated applications. However, based on a wide range of conversations with customers, partners, analysts, and others, the following are some of the most important steps to take in order to make the best use of public cloud environments as part of a broader hybrid IT strategy:
• Take a business-based approach to risk
• Understand legal and regulatory compliance
• Consider portability
• Establish a trusted software supply chain
• Enable hybrid cloud policy and management
• Adopt consistent operational approaches
• Maintain control over services and workloads
• Develop an appropriate application architecture
