Right-Sizing is the process of reserving cloud computing instances such as containers, VMs, or Bare Metal with enough resources (RAM, CPU, storage, & network) to accomplish sufficient performance at lowest cost possible. It allows the enterprise to optimize cloud infrastructure, performance, and cost-efficiency. It ensures that enterprise is getting the most of its cloud infrastructure with minimum spending. Right-sizing provides deep predictive analysis of workload patterns, delivering enterprises the insights to optimally leverage cloud resources by reducing operational risks and costs.
Data is a crucial component of any enterprise. Every organization has to deal with huge amounts of data. Managing storage infrastructure can create difficulties and challenges for organization. Downtime of storage can lead to huge loss in productivity of the enterprise.
Inadequate data security leads to unfortunate events like malicious attacks and loss of data. Data security should always be one among the top priorities for an organization. To ensure data is protected, organizations have to constantly monitor and manage infrastructure’s storage security.
Organization has to continuously upgrade storage infrastructure to meet an ever-rising amount of data. With this, there is an increase in cost of maintenance of infrastructure/hardware leading to increase in budget on data security and storage management.
A simple solution to resolve all the challenges of traditional storage systems is cloud storage. Click2Cloud® offers its complete automated multiple cloud management platform “Clouds Brain”.
A cloud migration provides your business with the ability to scale and perform in response to dynamic workload demands. Costs related to computing were historically tied to hardware procurement on a quarterly or annual basis. Since cloud technology uses a 'pay as you use' pricing model, it allows you to initiate services and initialize resources at any time. As a result, cost understanding, management, and optimization have changed.
Businesses and organizations are moving their workload to the cloud for better agility, performance, and security. Cloud computing is the bellwether of hosting applications and databases to improve the overall efficiency of business processes. The disparity between the on-premise workload and cloud environment workload often results in businesses migrating the workload to the cloud. Cloud technology shows impeccable growth contributing to the adoption of cloud-based computing across many businesses and organizations.

Data security is an important aspect of every field in technology. Users face challenges such as data hacking, data threats, hacking of highly confidential files, and many more. Cloud security uses latest technologies, techniques, and programs to secure the application that is hosted on the cloud, and the infrastructure that is associated with the cloud computing. Hence, a cloud provider is highly responsible to look after data confidentiality, data integrity, and data availability.
The Cloud Computing technology is digitally transforming many sectors such as IT, Banking, Retail, Healthcare, Education and Manufacturing, etc. Accessing, storing, migrating and managing data on-premise has become less feasible in today’s era. In such case, Cloud proves to be a boon for solving the above-mentioned challenges in every industry.
CloudsBrain file storage stores data of multi-cloud that provides servers and applications access to data through shared file systems. File storage in CloudsBrain comes under the storage module.
It is a file-level or file-based storage that is a hierarchical storage methodology used to organize and store data on a computer hard drive or network-attached storage systems.
An enterprise application heavily run on multiple clouds. These multi-cloud accounts use multiple container services provided by different cloud providers such as alibaba, azure etc. To reduce time and increase productivity you can use multiple container services on a single platform. Considering Alibaba Cloud Services, Click2Cloud’s CloudsBrain cluster and registry provisioning feature involves Alibaba Kubernetes and Registry services at one place where you can manage your nodes, deployments, and other resources that containerize the application development and deployment efficiently.
Application development with the advanced cloud technologies and resources has become a cumbersome task due to complex codes, multiple languages, frameworks, discontinuous interfaces, distributed environments and architectures. The use of docker containers eases these complexities and automates your workflow by giving developers the ability to apply smart innovations with their choice of tools and application stacks for their development, speeding up the delivery of enhancements and makes the deployments quick and easy.
Assess and Rehost an Application and Database from Virtualization Platform to Alibaba Cloud Through Clouds Brain
A virtual environment is an independent server module (Operating System + Application) that generally run-on independent servers. But with server virtualization, it is possible to run multiple virtual machines in a single (high capacity) server. In this process, each Virtual Machine considers that it is running on its own server (with dedicated resources).

Storing data at cloud not only enhances cost reduction but also improves business productivity, saves time, and provide better security of the infrastructure. But traditional enterprise storage solutions are based on proprietary hardware and controller-based storage arrays, which are expensive and rigid. It causes issues like vendor lock-in, self-governed, shortage of large amounts of data storage, hardware failure.
Most organizations have on-premise infrastructure/applications burdened with high capital expenses, complex management, scalability challenges, and hardware that needs to be replaced every 3-5 years. Maintaining existing on-prem infra results in increased operational process and drains IT budgets for organizations that are already cost, and resource-strapped.

A gateway is a network point that works as an access to another network. A gateway device provides communication to a remote network or an autonomous system that is out of bounds for the host network nodes. Gateways serve as the entry and exit point of a network; all data routed inward or outward must first pass through and communicate with the gateway in order to use routing paths. Cloud gateway is the gateway between the different cloud providers and the end-users who is going to use different cloud computing services.
Organizations are deploying various applications that run on separate cloud infrastructures, to avoid vendor lock-in for flexibility and spend optimization. Handling each cloud separately is not a better option for cloud resource management, specifically with Cloud cost management. These days, multi-cloud environments are inevitable.
