Operating the services that power your company has never been more difficult moves at real-time speeds have taken over. Businesses must control costs and manage risk while adjusting to a rapidly evolving technological landscape. IDC provides an example of the expanding operational challenges.

The complexity and size of distributed architectures keep increasing, making it difficult for even the most capable organizations. In a world where systems are more interdependent than ever before and service levels are getting harder to maintain cost-effectively, cloud technology adds another layer of complexity. Any organization that competes digitally must have operations that are secure and dependable.

Organizations can automatically identify issues and address them by utilizing contemporary tools and techniques, such as DevSecOps. This indicates that your services are more reliable for your clients and more cost-effective to run, all while enhancing the reputation of your company. 

What is self-healing infrastructure? 

The idea of self-healing infrastructure has been championed by early innovators of running digital services at scale. Organizations can respond to data center events more quickly by intelligence which reduces operational effort and boosts reliability without requiring human intervention. The self-healing element of this strategy is the automation that is applied to an event, but automation is only part of the story.

Self-healing infrastructure advantages 

The existing infrastructure of the organization may benefit immediately and directly from the addition of self-healing capabilities. The operational performance of distributed systems used by early adopters has increased, and many of the ideas have also been used in cloud environments.

Lowering system operating costs 

It is no longer cost-effective for organizations to manage distributed systems the same way they did in the past as they grow in number. It is difficult to retain operational knowledge due to high employee turnover, and alert fatigue reduces the amount of time and attention. By implementing self-healing techniques into their infrastructure, organizations reduce their direct costs.  

Strengthening system security 

Threats to system security are outpacing businesses’ capacity to maintain them. The capacity of staff to appropriately respond to security issues that affect systems. By investing in self-healing infrastructure, businesses can lower staff workloads and risk exposure. 

Reducing the effort required to fulfill compliance obligations 

Regulators demand traceability into actions taken throughout the data center in regulated industries like financial services and healthcare. Employing predefined playbooks and reports to fulfill SOC and ISO obligations can help organizations lessen this burden. 

Increasing service resiliency 

Service problems are having an increasing impact on customers. Swiftly resolving these issues by reducing the mean time to recovery can reduce their overall impact. Not only does self-correcting infrastructure save on infrastructure costs, but it also improves the reliability of operations.
