Cloud infrastructure refers to the hardware and software components of cloud computing that provide the resources and services needed to support cloud-based applications and services.
Here are some key components we look after and manage:
Cloud infrastructure typically includes a large number of servers, which are used to host and run cloud-based applications and services. These servers may be physical servers or virtual machines that run on top of a hypervisor.
Cloud infrastructure also includes various types of storage resources, such as hard disk drives, solid-state drives, and network-attached storage (NAS). These storage resources are used to store data and files that are accessed by cloud-based applications and services.
Cloud infrastructure also includes networking components, such as switches, routers, and firewalls, that enable communication between different servers and applications. Networking resources are used to manage traffic between different cloud-based applications and services.
Cloud infrastructure also includes virtualization software, such as VMware or Hyper-V, that allows multiple virtual machines to run on a single physical server. Virtualization software is used to maximize server utilization and improve the efficiency of cloud-based applications and services.
Cloud infrastructure also includes management tools and APIs that allow users to provision, manage, and monitor cloud resources. These tools enable users to control the resources they use, monitor resource usage, and manage security and compliance.
