Could you be your own Cloud Broker?
When your organisation needs to make a decision about a public cloud provider – whether that be for all your cloud services or on a service-by-service basis – you want to make sure you’re selecting the right platform on which to host your application or workload. Why not retain control and be your own Cloud Broker?
You need to look at things like performance, accessibility, security, support, Service Level Agreements and of course cost.
Many cloud brokerage solutions will give recommendations for optimal solutions based on cost alone. Sure, cost is a factor and cost management is one objective. But ideally you want to look at your entire application portfolio and develop a workload placement plan that takes into consideration your business requirements and objectives, licensing agreements, interdependencies, and hours of operations, for example, before you even start selecting where these applications and workloads should go.
