Cloud-based Infrastructure Automation

Why is it required?

Many enterprises have now been pushing their IT teams to move to the Cloud. However, one of the biggest failures that many enterprises encounter after migration to the cloud is improper management of resources leading to higher cost of operations. There are many reasons for it like inconsistency within the IT processes, lack of skilled people to evaluate resource requirements and control costs, lack of integration points within the applications, etc.; however, the most common of them is lack of an automation tool and lack of flexibility in resource provisioning and deprovisioning.


Improper Resource Utilization


Inconsistency within the Internal IT Processes


Improper Evaluation of Resource Requirements


Lack of Integration Points within the Applications

What is Automation?
One of the most important elements of cloud migration is automating the configuration, management and provisioning of resources in your cloud-based infrastructure. By implementing automated workflow processes, enterprises can improve efficiency, optimize the operational costs and improve business operations. Additionally, there are a number of other benefits of implementing cloud-based automation for workflow processes and resources utilization

Increased agility to changing business conditions

Reduced manual effort leading to higher efficiency

Higher compliance to audits

Reduced cost of workflow execution

Automation in AWS
If you use of plan to use AWS Cloud-based infrastructure, one of its premier product offering AWS CloudFormation lets you to model resources and run a huge list of AWS tools automatically and deploy the in your AWS Cloud-based infrastructure. It does all the heavy lifting of managing and provisioning your resources and services across multiple regions, thus making it easier for you to focus on mission-critical innovation instead of routing maintenance.
Automation in Google Cloud

Google Cloud provides Cloud Deployment Manager for automating the creation and management of Google Cloud Platform resources with flexible templates. We can build repeatable environments complete with infrastructure, networking, load balancing, and Cloud IAM using simple configuration files and commands. With Google’s infrastructure automation tools, you can experience the benefits of infrastructure as code whether you’re managing one machine or one million.

Automation in Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure also provides Service Management Automation to automate the creation, monitoring, and deployment of resources in your Windows Azure Pack environment. It also provides Azure Automation to automate Azure-related management tasks. Azure Automation delivers a cloud-based automation and configuration service that supports consistent management across your Azure and non-Azure environments. It comprises process automation, configuration management, update management, shared capabilities, and heterogeneous features. Automation gives you complete control during deployment, operations, and decommissioning of workloads and resources.

Shortened deployment cycles

Refined business workflows

Improved Security and Resilience

Other Tools for Automation

Apart from AWS, Google and Microsoft Cloud’s Automation tools, there are many different cloud infrastructure automation tools available using which we can help you choose the ones that best serve your cloud infrastructure needs, irrespective of your migration targets – public, private or hybrid cloud architectures.


Ansible is now becoming an industry standard infrastructure automation tool. It has numerous capabilities like GUI-based inventory management, flexible REST API, multi-playbook workflows, job scheduling and ability to embed in almost any task-based configuration management process.


Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It makes it easy to deploy and operate applications based on a microservice architecture for almost any cloud by creating an abstraction layer on top of a group of hosts.


Terraform is an open source tool that can be used to create and modify infrastructure. It helps you by automatically configuring and managing the lifecycle of a wide range of resources, including physical servers, networking, and SaaS products with the aid of extensive resource graphing and execution plans.
