Cloud Provisioning and Governance provisions on-demand cloud
services, accelerating service delivery while providing consistent,
nonintrusive governance guardrails that prevent uncontrolled cloud
spend. It directly leverages native cloud provisioning capabilities.
Cloud Centers of Excellence need the ability to create a catalog of
standardized cloud services. DevOps and other users simply select the
cloud service they want, enter configuration parameters, and submit
their request. Cloud Centers of Excellence should have a consistent,
secure, and auditable way of ordering services across multiple clouds,
delivering effective governance while simplifying and accelerating
provisioning for users.
Cloud Centers of Excellence need role-based permissions and policies
for your users, creating non-intrusive guardrails that are only
triggered when there is an exception condition. Policy examples include
storage and CPU quotas, allowed cloud service types, naming conventions,
workload placement, resource sizing limits, tagging policies, and more.
This enables the management approvals for policy exceptions while
instantly fulfilling compliant requests. It is also important to be able
to automatically deprovision cloud resources—reducing cloud sprawl and
stranded cloud assets.
Managing all cloud resources and associated governance from a single
portal helps to create new cloud services, manage existing cloud
services, track approvals, and see associated changes and incidents for
cloud resources. A single portal with quota utilization information,
creates situational awareness and encourages users to release cloud
resources they are no longer required.
A dedicated Cloud Administration Portal, providing a single pane of
glass where IT managers can govern their cloud resources and deployment
policies across multiple cloud vendors.
