Cloud operations is traditional IT Operations on steroids. Cloud computing technologies support a dramatically different operating model that focuses on how quickly replacement compute can be operational instead of how quickly troubleshooting can fix a problem. Overall application and service availability is maximized, and individual infrastructure failures are minimized. And the amount of cloud operations data, accessible at aggregated levels for trending and at granular levels for targeting and alerts, combined with the speed at which this information must be processed, analyzed, and acted upon, require a level of automation that has never been seen before.
