As cloud technologies continues to mature, not only are businesses and organizations recognizing the potential of the cloud, but investing in the cloud management software and solutions. A recent study found that 40% of the companies attributed cloud usage to reduced costs and improved efficiency of business processes.
Companies should evaluate cloud-based solutions and seriously discuss how cloud computing can become a critical path to meeting your business and IT needs?
Here’s a list of some smart Cloud automation and configuration tools that let us manage hundreds of machines with a few quick clicks:
Ganglia Monitoring System – It is one of the most comprehensive sets of tools for monitoring a diverse cluster of machines. It is highly scalable by design and allows IT admins to get a complete holistic view of the IT environment’s performance. Ganglia is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization.
Graphite: Scalable Realtime Graphing – Graphite is the leading open-source metrics collection, retrieval, and visualization service. Collect thousands of metrics from your application and graph them on easily-readable dashboards. Find the pulse of your application and ensure you see the really important things happening in your technology in real-time.
Tattle – It is designed to watch the graphs for you and then send off alerts if some line crosses over into some place it’s not supposed to be. Written in PHP for both Graphite and Ganglia.
Logstash – logstash is a tool for managing events and logs. You can use it to collect logs, parse them, and store them for later use (like, for searching). Speaking of searching, logstash comes with a web interface for searching and drilling into all of your logs.
It is fully free and fully open source. The license is Apache 2.0, meaning you are pretty much free to use it however you want in whatever way.
Kibana – It is glue between Logstash and Elasticsearch that allows you to efficiently search, graph, analyze and otherwise make sense of a mountain of logs.
CloudVelocity – The first hybrid cloud software that allows existing multi-tier apps and services to run seamlessly, without modification across data centers and public clouds.
