Exploring Cloud Computing, Cloud Monitoring, and Practical Examples

Published on 12 February 2024

Examples of Cloud Computing and Cloud Monitoring

In the era of digital transformation, many companies have adopted cloud computing environments as an integral part of their information technology strategy. The use of cloud computing allows companies to utilize a variety of cloud services from multiple providers, increasing the flexibility, performance and security of their IT infrastructure. 

However, cloud computing also has its own challenges in terms of management and maintenance. Companies must ensure that their cloud computing infrastructure is always available, high-performing, and secure from threats. For this reason, companies need cloud monitoring, namely the process of monitoring and evaluating all aspects of cloud computing infrastructure. 

So, what is cloud computing and why do companies need to implement cloud monitoring to ensure cloud infrastructure remains available, high-performance and secure? 

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is a computing model that allows easy and on-demand access to computing resources such as servers, storage, databases, networks, analytics software, and Artificial Intelligence over the internet. 

In short, in this model, users do not need to own or directly manage traditional physical infrastructure, such as servers or data canters. 

What are the Types of Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing models are generally divided into three main types of services, such as: 

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Provides access to virtual servers, storage, and networking. 

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Provides a development platform that allows users to develop, test, and execute applications without having to manage physical infrastructure. 

Software as a Service (SaaS)

Provides software applications that can be accessed directly via the web, without requiring local installation or maintenance. 

Examples of Successful Applications of Cloud Computing in Business from AWS

Cloud computing has become a popular solution in the IT world because of its flexibility, efficiency, and ability to provide computing resources at scale that are easily adjusted according to needs. 

So, if you want to know some successful examples of implementing cloud computing for business, here are some examples from AWS: 

Automotive

For example, the cloud computing system from AWS can accelerate efficiency and innovation in the automotive industry. With cloud services, companies can manage supply chains, improve design collaboration, and optimize vehicle performance through data analysis. 

F&B (Food and Beverage)

In the F&B industry, cloud computing improves operational efficiency. Restaurants and manufacturers can manage inventory in real-time, optimize ordering processes, and increase supply chain visibility, while reducing IT infrastructure costs. 

Games

Cloud computing from AWS can change the way game developers work by facilitating game testing and development without large investments. Cloud services also support efficient game storage and distribution, enabling a better online gaming experience. 

Streaming Services

In streaming services, cloud computing is the foundation for delivering multimedia content globally. Service providers can store, efficiently deploy content, provide personalized recommendations, and address demand spikes with the flexibility and scalability of the cloud.

So, after knowing what cloud computing is and examples of successful implementation from AWS, we return to the question at the beginning, why do companies that have adopted cloud computing need cloud monitoring? Here’s the explanation. 

What is Cloud Monitoring and Why Should the Cloud Be Monitored?

Cloud monitoring is a set of solutions and practices used to observe, measure, analyze, and manage the health of cloud-based IT infrastructure. Continuous monitoring with automation provides clear visibility into the performance and availability of websites, files, applications, servers, and network resources. With this visibility, a company can identify and address issues in real-time before they impact customers’ digital experiences. 

Cloud monitoring works by unifying data from applications and related resources across multiple channels to detect anomalies, perform root-cause analysis, and predict and prevent security breaches and intrusions. In addition, this solution also presents reports, including metrics, performance, and incident detection, visually through an integrated dashboard. 

What are the Types of Cloud Monitoring and How Do They Work?

Regardless of how an IT team or network, infrastructure, or platform service provider sets up cloud monitoring, there are several types of cloud monitoring available: 

  • Application Performance Monitoring (APM): Provides real-time visibility into application status and performance. 
  • Database Monitoring: Ensures database queries are performing well and identifies host problems. 
  • Website Monitoring: Examining the process, traffic, availability, and resource usage of cloud-hosted websites. 
  • Cloud Server Monitoring: Track metrics and insights about server health, CPU, memory, and network, as well as hosts, containers, and serverless functions. 
  • Cloud Storage Monitoring: Involves monitoring storage resources and processes allocated to virtual machines, services, databases, and applications.  
  • Virtual Machine (VM) Monitoring: Ensures resource usage and VM performance supports applications. 
  • End-User Experience Monitoring: Tracking and measuring customer satisfaction with company products and services. 
  • Unified Monitoring: A unified platform that monitors physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure.
