Organizations are turning to the cloud to reap the benefits of scalability, flexibility and cost savings as part of their data transformation efforts. But these environments are complex and require a strategic approach from the outset.
Google Cloud is increasingly becoming part of hybrid and multi-cloud environments, especially for organizations looking to seamlessly move cloud-native workloads between private and public cloud infrastructure.
Maybe you’re already using other public and/or private clouds, but you’re looking to benefit from the capabilities of Google Cloud, such as machine learning and next-gen analytics. Or you need open source options such as Google’s Kubernetes Engine.
But when it comes to hybrid and multi-cloud environments, costs can be higher than expected, performance lower than expected and management more challenging than expected. And a poorly executed strategy can lead to cloud sprawl.
That’s why starting your cloud journey off on the right foot can ensure you’re set for success in the long-term. So how can organizations start off on the right foot, especially when time, money and internal resources to support the platform are already limited?
Hit the ground running
With Pythian’s Blast of Benefits, we’ll help you set up your Google Cloud account for long-term success. (And if you’re already using Google Cloud, we’ll provide you with a free systems health check to make sure you’re operating at peak performance).
Here are some of the ways we’ll help set you up for success:
Billing: There’s more to billing than receiving and paying invoices. You can track your Google Cloud costs with billing reports, analyze billing data and even create custom dashboards, so you can understand your cloud costs and learn how to optimize spending, such as setting up budgets and alerts.
Cloud identity and organization: We’ll help you create your Google Cloud Identity account and associate it with a domain, which will create your organization resource for all projects and billing accounts.
Users and groups: Once your organization resource is created, all users in your domain are automatically granted identity and access management (IAM) roles. We can help you set up Google groups and manage users’ roles within those groups, so you can manage who has access for which resource.
Administrative access: With Google Cloud, permissions are grouped into roles, which are granted to principals. We can help you understand how this works and set up which roles will be granted to which principal.
Resource hierarchy: This hierarchy of ownership provides central visibility and control over every resource in your organization. We can help you map your organization onto Google Cloud, so you can set access control policies and configuration settings on a parent resource that will then be inherited through the hierarchy.
