Organizations choose to embrace a multi-cloud strategy for many reasons including avoiding vendor lock-in, choosing the appropriate service vendor (like a specialized SaaS), flexibility, modernization, regulatory compliance (based on Geography etc.) and enhanced security.
CBC provides multi-cloud management services that addresses the essential elements of a successful mutli-cloud strategy. By utilizing best-of-the-breed toolsets such as InfraGuard governance, IBM Cloud Paks we address such concerns as cost control, patching, process automation, governance, centralized access management policies and training.
One of the core principles of CloudOps1 is “Automate Everything You Can”. Automation involves not only writing scripts but managing them and the managing several automation scripts could well overrun the cost of a manual process.
CBC’s holistic DevOps methodology goes beyond automation. We analyze the needs of our customers by understanding, revising their current organization-wide practices on configuration management, cost/ledge allocation, tagging, CI/CD and reducing infrastructure cost by eliminating unused resources.
DevOps principles according to DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA) is an open, global community for DevOps and Agile skills development.
Cloud Security is an essential ingredient of a successful cloud strategy. According to a report by (ISC)² more than 90% of the organizations are concerned about cloud security. Cloud Security goes beyond migrating existing Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems to cloud. Cloud Security & Governance requires a comprehensive overview of security policies of an organization including physical security, thread detection systems, pen testing, chaos engineering, firewalls and encryption.
Apart from the well-documented security risks outlined by OWASP such as SQL injection, DDoS etc., migrating to cloud comes with its own set of challenges including loss of visibility, compliance management, contractual breaches, misconfiguration/misunderstanding of responsibilities (ala AWS Shared Responsibility Model)
