Cloud management architecture

Cloud management architecture

Complex clouds, in particular hybrid clouds, may require tools to facilitate working across multiple clouds.

Broker between clouds
Brokering software evaluates relative costs between different cloud platforms. Cloud Management Platforms (CMP) allow the designer to determine the right location for the workload based on predetermined criteria.
Facilitate orchestration across the clouds

CMPs simplify the migration of application workloads between public, private, and hybrid cloud platforms.

We recommend using cloud orchestration tools for managing a diverse portfolio of systems and applications across multiple cloud platforms.
