Cloud and managed service providers supply a variety of offerings to their customers; however, the managing of these services can be complicated.
Services for different customers must be isolated from each other, while running on the same infrastructure. In turn, Global security standards – as well as customer-specific standards, need to be maintained at all times and updated quickly when necessary. Services should be kept in compliance with regulatory, customer and industry requirements at all times, and noncompliant services must be addressed quickly. New workloads should be migrated to the host environment quickly, while existing workloads should be scaled dynamically as needed by the customer.
Automation technologies can streamline management and reduce manual operations, as a result, you can increase the speed and efficiency of service delivery to differentiate your offerings, meet your service-level agreements (SLAs) faster, and increase profit margins.
