Is Your Cloud in Good Hands?

By Alvin Fortenberry November 11, 2020

Nice work! Your cloud infrastructure has been deployed utilizing a well-architected framework. Now, how do you go about managing your entire cloud infrastructure in one place?

ivision can serve as a helping hand through this ongoing process. We’re able to provide total visibility, deep insight and cloud automation to your organization. Whether you need cost and expense management, security and compliance, asset management, resource utilization or self-healing automation, our team of experts is up to the challenge. Our managed services solution provides 24/7/365 support for your cloud environment and provides recommendations for cost savings and security best practices.

Cost-Saving Strategy

Every day, we take advantage of alerts and reports from our combination of tools to catch any misconfigurations or costs deviating from the norm. We have access to dashboard reports, easily exported to share with team members and stakeholders. These reports can be generated weekly, monthly or even daily and sent directly out to your team. We work with you to determine the best approach for visibility, ensuring that you’re never left in the dark.

We also utilize tools that allow us to pull data surrounding costs with specific services. Rather than compiling this data manually, which can take hours or even days depending on the size of your environment, we’re able to access this information within a matter of minutes. This gives your organization speedy access to your financial information and gives us the chance to let you know if you’re over budget right away.

Security Best Practices

Our team applies more than 600 best practice checks to get the best understanding of your infrastructure. Here, we provide value in areas spanning across security, cost, availability and usage for our clients. The state of your environment dictates the types of recommendations that you’ll see here. These recommendations are color-coded to separate the more critical items from less urgent ones. From a security standpoint, you may see recommendations surrounding an Identity & Access Management (IAM) role with full Admin privileges, or from a cost standpoint, you may see recommendations of an RDS instance not using reserved instance pricing.

Managing resources and implementing cloud management best practices for clients used to be a long, manual process, but we’ve invested in resources and team members who are able to access resource information in real-time. With this feature, our team can resolve critical alerts immediately and address non-critical or neutral alerts during our monthly client service meetings in an easily readable format. From here, we take the necessary steps to resolve issues of any shape or size.

When optimizing and managing cloud environments, things can get complicated fast. Luckily, you’re not alone. Learn more about ivision’s managed services offerings or contact us to start a partnership.
