Cloud Management and Automation

Analyst report by 451 Research, published on 11/6/2013

As the worlds of outsourcing, hosting, managed services and cloud computing continue to converge, users can choose services that meet a variety of workload, policy and SLA characteristics. 'Best execution venue' (BEV) practices will be used to make rational decisions about how and where to best run applications and tasks, and from where to source services. A BEV may be an internal or on-premises cloud; a multi-tenant public cloud; a SaaS offering; some 'more trusted' cloud; or a private, hosted, dedicated environment that can fulfill specific economic, operational, latency or data-location requirements.

This report examines the adoption of cloud management and automation tools that are emerging to support the selection, provisioning, scheduling and dispatch of work to BEVs and the acquisition of services from them. Of particular interest are tools that can manage this complex and dynamic activity, which are identified within the adoption plans of enterprise end users in our Wave 5 Cloud Computing Study.
