Using Cloud as It Was Intended: How a Cloud-Native Approach Can Help Businesses Succeed and Innovate within Complex Cloud Ecosystems

VMBlog – by Paul Nau

Getting the most value from a cloud estate requires that organizations master its intrinsic complexity. A robust enterprise cloud consists of a huge - indeed, dizzying - number of moving parts. A fully deployed enterprise cloud ecosystem must successfully and efficiently utilize:

  • Core infrastructure components such as virtual networks, identity and authorization, security (encryption, antivirus, intrusion detection), and compliance features (ensuring adherence to an ever-growing body of regulations, such as GDPR, CCPA, and PCI-DSS, to name a few) are essential and underly any safe and secure cloud environment.
  • Application components, ranging from solutions merely transferred to the cloud as VMs to more advanced architectures such as microservice-based containers, Kubernetes-based orchestration, and serverless.
  • Data management, of which the cloud offers an enormous variety of choices, including enterprise-class relational databases such as Oracle, DB2, and SQL Server; open source RDMBS systems like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and others; NoSQL document-oriented databases like Dynamo DB, Cosmos DB, and Mongo DB ; and graph-oriented databases such as Neo4j.
