Resource Management (Erl, Naserpour)

How can a cloud consumer safely manage an IT resource without impacting neighboring IT resources?

Problem

When cloud consumers access and manage deployed IT resources that coexist with other IT resources as part of a live production environment, management changes to an IT resource may inadvertently negatively impact others.

Solution

A set of tools and backend controls are provided by the cloud provider to protect the management activity of one cloud consumer from others.

Application

Cloud consumers are given limited access levels and management options and their management activity is further confined to their respective logical network perimeters.
Resource Management: Cross-IT resource management tools and logic are used to check (and optionally audit and log) commands before allowing them to be executed.
