What is Cloud Infrastructure Optimization?


The act of analyzing and adjusting the allocation of cloud resources that power applications, infrastructures, and workloads to improve performance and decrease waste due to over-provisioning is known as cloud infrastructure optimization. Cloud infrastructure optimization helps an organization take a better grasp of how their cloud instances are performing, allowing them to take proactive actions to make smarter cloud decisions.

Why is Cloud Infrastructure Optimization Important?

Cloud optimization helps evaluate an organization’s workload patterns, including use, history, and operational costs. It then assists in combining this information with the knowledge of available cloud services and configurations to provide recommendations that help improve workload-to-service matching.

Investing in managed cloud services is the best way to optimize an organization’s cloud infrastructure. Not only can partnering with the right managed service provider (MSP) help the enterprise keep their infrastructure secure, but it will also help them optimize spend and time and allow them to focus more on operational outcomes.

How to Implement Cloud Infrastructure Optimizations?

Businesses must take the following steps to understand, measure, and optimize their cloud setup:

  1. Identify the workload for the cloud: Understand that not all applications are appropriate for the cloud. It’s a good idea to assess which applications would gain the most from cloud migration.
  1. Estimate your resources appropriately:  Make a point of selecting only the requisite resources and storage before investing so you don’t end up paying for space you don’t need.
  1. Monitor your usage: Regularly monitoring cloud usage can go a long way in ensuring zero cloud wastage. You can also define resource quota policies that prevent unpredicted spikes in usage or limit people who can use and manage cloud resources.
  1. Regular optimization: Another essential strategy to keep your cloud infrastructure optimized is to adjust workloads periodically and take immediate corrective measures.
  1. Choose the right managed cloud partner: Selecting a cloud partner with the required expertise, processes, systems, and a track record can help you plan and manage your cloud requirements more effectively.
