Managing a cloud server can be tricky. Cloud servers need to be monitored closely to make sure that it doesn’t go down, and to keep an eye on your monthly bill.
There are lots of considerations to make when it comes to managing a cloud server. To help, we have identified the key areas you need to cover when it comes to effective cloud server management:
Monitoring: You will need to monitor your cloud server for any capacity issues to ensure your business-critical systems are running at all times. You will need to make sure you’re aware of any critical alerts and that they are acted on quickly.
Backup: It is important to backup your cloud server, typically daily, to ensure an immediate restore of data can be performed in the event of an issue. You will need to monitor for backup failures to ensure your backups are there when you need them.
Patch Management: Patches are updates released by Microsoft that improve security, functionality, or system stability. Ensuring that patches are tested and deployed on a regular basis ensures your environment is secure and always has the latest features available.
