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 Centres of Excellence need the ability to create a catalogue of standardised cloud services. DevOps and other users simply select the cloud service they want, enter configuration parameters and submit their request. Cloud Centres 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 Centres 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 utilisation 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.
