Cloud management platforms (CMPs) are being implemented by enterprises now more than ever to manage and automate the flow of new workloads into the enterprise. However, no commercially available CMP today takes a deep enough look at the workload's resource, technical and business-related requirements to make these routing decisions. Most rely on logic that sends workloads into environments using simplistic tags that match workloads to environments and lack the ability to truly balance demand and supply for the best use of available resources. Making the right decision on where to place a workload is crucial because the wrong decision can result in performance issues, the cost of re-work and re-deployment, and inefficient use of available infrastructure.
In this slideshow, Cirba CTO and co-founder Andrew Hillier shares five ways where not having the proper decision logic in place to make the right routing decisions can cost your organization.
