TOP 4 CLOUD COMPUTING SUGGESTIONS FOR 2016
It’s now the year 2016. Many assume that the same tips and tricks that worked back in 2014 will work in this new year. To a certain extent, this guesswork would be right. However, there are times when it’s good to reinvent the wheel. There are times when you do need to make some adjustments. This is exactly what we are going to be doing here today.
So, let’s make some adjustments for using the cloud.
1) Do you guys remember something called the “container”? In specific, there was something called the “Docker”. Well it’s making a comeback in a very big way. These packages allow the user to move from cloud to cloud, while keeping any and all information under one roof. It’s really that simple.
According to many experts in the IT world there are only two apps that will really make this tool shine. If you are using the microservices, than you are as good as gold. If your applications are also under DevOps, than you are also going to benefit majorly. If you are using these two apps in conjunction with the Containers than you are really going to create something big and real.
2) You heard me speak of DevOps. It’s making quite the comeback. As with anything, trends are a funny thing. One minute you are hot. The next minute you are not. Same thing happened with DevOps. This app combines both task and development all in one package.
It was really popular when it first started. As year went on, it began to fade. It started to fade as more innovative ideas for the cloud were coming out. Well now it’s making a big comeback, but a few adjustments have been made. The basic ideas are still there, there are just a few updates.
DevOps is divided into 2 areas. There is the script-based and the model-based DevOps. The script-based model is your basic and original concept. It’s still reigning supreme. Now that the model-based concept has come along, it’s now dueling it all out. The model concept wants full control when it comes to cloud conceptualization and development.
So while these two battle it out, the user gets the benefits of each tool and it’s operation. While this battle might not be seen as a good thing on the surface, it’s actually offering some things users didn’t get before. Which is why it’s part of the list of cloud computing tips.
3) Some users might be looking for a way to get into cloud administration. This doesn’t exactly fall under the idea of user tips, but it works as a tip for “using the cloud” in general. Administrators use the cloud too, so it all fits in a way.
Here’s the thing. You really have to work your way up. You really have to separate yourself from the pack early on. If you have had prior job user experience with the cloud, you really have to showcase this. It’s really one of the best ways to prove you’ve got what the others do not.
4) If you are using the Cloud WAN for any reason, you really have to know your vendors. Make sure the vendors you are choosing for IT purposes are the ones that work best for you. Too many users have found out the hard way about IT vendors in the cloud world.
There are three that really reign supreme here:
- Microsoft Azure
- Google Cloud Platform
There are a few others, but they will not be as good as the above selection. If you require more information about these vendors and other cloud resources, please visit us online today.
