Simply put, automation is what makes a system or process function automatically. In the world of cloud computing, cloud automation is broadly referred to as those processes and tools which an organization uses to reduce the manual efforts normally associated with providing and managing cloud computing workloads. Furthermore, cloud automation can be applied to private, public and hybrid cloud environments.

Repetitive and manual processes although they can be effective, are inefficient and often leads to errors. With the result that troubleshooting methods must be applied. This in turn delays the availability of networks and systems. Manual processes, make system security vulnerable which can put your entire enterprise at risk.

By implementing cloud automation, your organization can eliminate these repetitive and manual processes as well as the risks associated with it. When implemented properly, cloud automation can save your business both time and money and help it run more efficiently.




  • Establish Infrastructure as Code (IAC). Cloud platforms organize computer resources into pools. Thus, users can add and deploy more resources irrespective of resource location.
  • Define common configuration items such as containers, storage LUNs and virtual private networks (VPN’s). For example, with a cloud automation solution you can create a certain number of containers for a microservice application, load certain software components into the container clusters, connect storage and a database, configure a virtual network, create load balancers for the clusters and then open the workload to the users of the network.
  • Manage workloads by configuring an application performance management (APM) tool in order to monitor the deployed workload and its performance.

Cloud automation can also play a role in hybrid clouds. So as to automate tasks in a private cloud environment based on frameworks such as OpenStack. Subsequently, driving integration with public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. NBS Digital Technologies are collaborating with these public clouds and will therefore be able to ensure that we can maximize the value-centric services which we deliver to our clients.

With cloud automation your business will be able to see exactly which resources are being used and identify which users are using them. In essence, predicting how your resources will be used in the future and ensure a level of service quality that manual processes are unable to deliver.

NBS Digital Technologies is the ability to leverage these opportunities to digitally transform your business through the cloud automation process.
