Does My Cloud Hosting and Storage Environment Need an Assessment?

Much like the human body, signs of a needed assessment come in the form of early symptoms of cloud related issues. These usually come in fairly small signs—and unfortunately often skipped.

As you scale your product, these symptoms will manifest into real-world problems (that you need to address in real time!), costing you money, resources and most of all, your user/consumer’s trust.

There are a few common scenarios where we recommend our clients that their cloud hosting or storage environment be analyzed by our assessment team:

  • Inadequate Security: If your cloud environment is experiencing security breaches or cyberattacks, it could indicate that best practices for cybersecurity are not being followed
  • Slow Performance: If your cloud environment is slow to respond or experiencing frequent downtime, it could indicate that best practices for performance optimization are not being followed
  • High costs: If your cloud environment is too costly, you’re likely not using optimal cost management practices
  • Lack of scalability: If your cloud environment is struggling to scale and handle growing demands, you’re likely not using best practices to scale IT resources up or down as needed
  • Poor disaster recovery: If your cloud environment is not adequately prepared for disaster recovery or data loss, it could indicate that you do not have the appropriate disaster recovery procedures planned for such cases

The solution our team provides is a thorough review of your current cloud environment in terms of security, performance, cost, scalability and disaster recovery. Sphere Partners has 15+ years of experience in delivering cloud solutions. Our cloud service providers are experts in identifying potential issues in cloud environments, providing actionable recommendations and solutions to ensure an optimal cloud hosting and storage system.
