But without proper management or with suboptimal configurations, this benefit may not be as apparent as one may have hoped for. Thus, it is important for enterprises to keep track of the consumption of cloud resource and data whenever adopting a cloud-based design.
Although seemingly straightforward, such task can be daunting and laborious, especially when you have hundreds or thousands of resources being managed on a cloud platform like Alibaba Cloud. Keeping such colossal data is a hectic task, and this may lead to additional costs to maintain and manage the infrastructure, setup, billing, and budget management.
