Managing Cloud infrastructure has become increasingly challenging due to the ever growing demand for servers, softwares, network & storage devices which make up the cloud environment. In addition, the speed at which new technologies and tools are being introduced by the cloud providers is fuelling the challenge. While there is a strong race to get all infrastructure assets onto the cloud for different reasons, organizations need to take a step back to ensure that they are doing so thoroughly with due diligence.

This whitepaper discusses how an organization can manage its complex cloud infrastructure using the ‘RACS’ framework. The RACS Framework is curated to provide a checklist that enables measurement and management of an organization’s cloud infrastructure.

The framework utilizes ‘Cloud Reliability Engineering (CRE)’- a practice that allows maximum operational flexibility and agility while maintaining cost efficiencies, by providing the capabilities needed to securely manage consolidated resources.
