Managing Cloud Device Sprawl
Wednesday, July, 15th, 2020
The great thing about building out the cloud is that it is generally fast and easy. Take virtual machines as an example. They are easy to create. You can build it once and replicate it multiple times. They are relatively inexpensive, and you don’t need to be in the IT department to launch a new server. The bad thing about VMs is that you don’t need to be in IT to launch them. People forget to decommission them when they’re done, and they can be a security vulnerability. The same can be said for launching a variety of cloud instances and S3 buckets. Quick, easy and potentially insecure. Ironically, managing server sprawl was much easier when you could actually see the servers.
This 20/20 webcast looks at how IT departments can better manage not only cloud device sprawl, but all kinds of virtual devices that can store data and have assigned IP addresses. So, whether you’re firing up a virtual server, a new cloud instance or cloud-based storage device, you can control the building and decommissioning of virtual machines, wherever they might be.
