Efficient, Effective, Intelligent, and Secure O&M — Part 2: Results and Key Findings

Monitoring and Visualization

Alibaba Cloud has extensive support for monitoring and metrics collection with Cloud Monitor providing valuable intel on resource usage and different workload behavior. An O&M must collect comprehensive information to provide unified management across solutions covering compute service, networking, storage, and other platforms or environments.

O&M with Microservices and Containers

Cloud computing features distributed architectures and container-based deployments with microservices and DevOps taking the lead. Service scheduling with many different architectures and methodologies is becoming more complex. An ill-managed system could become susceptible to faults, where fault tolerance is directly associated with the quality of O&M applied to the architecture.

Resource Management and Diagnostics

Alibaba Cloud O&M solutions feature intelligent fault detection capabilities. Furthermore, resource management and disaster recovery are two given features that are shared across the Alibaba Cloud platform. Managing resources is a task best defined by how frequently your resource fluctuations happen. O&M requires significant planning, and Alibaba Cloud Bastionhost and Operation Orchestration Service (OOS) have been designed to provide seamless utilization of resources to enable cost-cutting methods.

Full-Stack Management

Alibaba Cloud O&M solutions collectively deliver a solution that covers networking, storage, computing, VPCs, and other virtualized resources. This enables full-stack management with end-to-end monitoring capabilities to enable the most effective and efficient O&M practice It becomes easier for the system to enable fault prediction, detection, and prevention through end-to-end monitoring.


We will focus on Alibaba Cloud Bastionhost as the primary topic in the next article of this series on O&M, but let’s have a short intro to set the stage.

  • Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)
  • Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)

Operation Orchestration Service (OOS)

Alibaba Cloud Operation Orchestration Service (OOS) can manage various Alibaba Cloud services, including Elastic Compute Service (ECS), Server Load Balancer (SLB), Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), and many more.

Wrapping Up

Alibaba Cloud has presented an automated, intelligent, efficient, and effective O&M platform that allows a seamless complexity-free experience. These solutions feature automation that make sthe complete system less prone to human error in processing. This enables superior quality of IT services and helps cut down on operational costs.
