The Automation Games: Why Your Cloud Vendors are Holding You Back
Too many enterprises embrace cloud computing just to avoid having to allocate virtual machines manually, and then they call it a day. Once the server is the launched, it still requires human intervention to install and configure software and get the machine running properly -- and then more human intervention every time the operating system or software needs an upgrade. Sometimes the site even needs to go down to apply a new service patch. What is this—1995?
Vendors want you to believe they're going to save you but they're the biggest problem -- their technology still lives in the data-center virtualization world of the past decade, and they're just trying to stay afloat -- they're not interested in helping companies implement good cloud automation strategies. This webinar will walk through what is possible today in cloud automation, and outline how you can get there, with or without your vendors.
You will learn:
- The three levels of cloud automation, from virtualization to orchestration;
- The tools that you can use to orchestrate your cloud; and
- Questions you can ask your vendors to assess their ability to help you.
