6 Key Moves For Developing Highly Effective Cloud Services

3. Fully Leverage Your Instrumentation

As more IT tasks are executed through code, capabilities such as server provisioning can now be extended to include higher-level services that can add value in a variety of ways. One example involves the use of "self-healing" technologies in which instrumentation regarding the health of your cloud can be used to trigger automatic responses to problems identified by the system. In addition to helping with the provisioning of servers, the management software also can dynamically set up new servers in the event of failure. Therefore, the system can automatically take down and replace a malfunctioning server instead of triggering a call to an employee in the middle of the night.
