The quick growth to rank and raise cloud management techniques and means have formed massive opportunities for companies of all sizes and industries.
By embracing a robust cloud management solution that is capable of managing everything right from cloud orchestration, scaling, support to management and monitoring of IT and non IT assets; enterprises can enhance their ability, add new proficiency, increase flexibility and reduce the service expenditure. There are a number of tools that are present in the market today which offer scaling, monitoring, support, etc. but can they be called a self-sufficient Cloud Management Solution, and are they capable of scaling as well?
Expanding the repository storage of the application and raising the number of resources in the similar logical parameter is called Vertical Scaling. Here, scalability is done with respect to both the processing capability as well as the CPU and RAM capacities. So for e.g. if the a 16 GB server is suddenly experiencing extra load may be due to increase in the number of processors in an existing, then the existing server can be scaled to a higher size, say 32 GB or 64 GB, as per the predefined limit set by the host. This is possible by using eNlight Cloud.
For instance you own an e-commerce website having loads of customers. Since you have lots of customer visiting and shopping regularly from your website, there are chances of increase in the traffic and that will directly collide with your server, resulting in downgrade of the websites performance. Now to avoid the downfall of the performance, you will want to scale your server capacity without any manual intervention or reboot or a downtime.
With eNlight, capacity of the server can be increased by increasing the storage space as well as the capacity in real time. So if you are willing to use vertical auto-scaling approach, eNlight Cloud magnifies the capabilities of your node which will handle the traffic accurately. Now to reduce the responsibility of the individual servers, eNlight automatically increases the number of servers with equal storage in the already existing server. This is known as horizontal auto-scaling approach.
When horizontal and vertical autoscaling are combine, it is called as hybrid or multi-dimensional scaling wherein depending on the incoming load the servers scale vertically to the set limits within the physical capacity of the server and then horizontally by creating more VMs.
With the automatic scaling abilities in eNlight Cloud Platform, CIOs get the veto power to take control of Cloud and its core characteristics by scaling. However, another added benefit of this platform is that you cloud is automated and rendered easy to use. With a single sign on session, CIOs can monitor and manage their cloud at the click of the mouse. Everything from compute, network, security services, storage, database, applications, billing information and account management capabilities can be effortlessly accessed through a single window.
The process in fact gets so automated that your system start running extra effectively leaving no chance for errors. All of this backed by ESDS’ exuberant support and managed services that are available round the clock and 365 days of the year make managing and provisioning for your cloud a cake walk.
