Skill and knowledge gap affecting Cloud deployments: Bulletproof

Cloud provider also highlights the importance of guiding customers through the Cloud transition

Organisations are struggling to deploy Cloud in a way that delivers security, availability and performance, according to Bulletproof.

Chief customer officer, Mark Randall, said it can be sometimes difficult to get web sites, and the applications they’re running on, to work effectively in the Cloud.

“This is due to a skills gap, because Cloud is a fundamentally different architecture to traditional hosting,” he said.

Another issue Randall highlights is users do not carry out volume snapshots properly, possibly leaving data vulnerable.

“They’re not setting up the environment properly to ensure uptime,” he said.

Randall adds the Cloud platform itself is capable of these functions, though one needs to know how to use it properly.

The building blocks

Bulletproof is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Consulting Partner and uses this accreditation to aid customers with the transition to the Cloud.

“Our approach to that is we want to deliver to customers a Cloud that is mission critical, as typically Clouds by themselves are not,” Randall said.

As for AWS’ role in this, Randall said the company essentially just provides a set of components.

“You then need to make the decision whether to put those building blocks together yourself or instead work with a trusted partner to do that,” he said.
