Cloud sprawl

What is Cloud Sprawl?
Cloud Sprawl ist die unkontrollierte Verbreitung von Cloud-Instanzen oder Cloud-Präsenz einer Organisation. Dies passiert, wenn eine Organisation ihre verschiedenen Cloud-Instanzen unzureichend steuert, überwacht und verwaltet, was zu zahlreichen einzelnen Cloud-Instanzen führt, die dann möglicherweise vergessen werden, aber weiterhin Ressourcen verbrauchen oder Kosten verursachen, da die meisten Organisationen öffentliche Cloud services bezahlen.

Cloud Sprawl is very similar to VM Sprawl or Server Sprawl; There is an oversupply of different solutions that quickly become uncontrollable. For example, a developer could test part of a system they are developing on AWS and create an entire virtual network, and then forget to delete the instances. He then comes back the next day to create another instance for a new set of tests. Now two instances are running while the first one has been forgotten. Without proper visibility and control, this could quickly get out of hand, especially if multiple people are doing the same thing, leading to cloud sprawl. This is even worse when multiple providers are involved or even only different cloud offerings from the same manufacturer.

Cloud sprawl can be a nightmare for IT administrators, because at the end of the day they have to round off and master all loose cloud instances, not to mention significant costs for the organization if they are not controlled quickly enough.
