Resource Sizing – On-premise and cloud infrastructures are completely different animals when it comes to resource and performance allocation. It is very common for engineers to oversize resources because they think they are similar.
Ungoverned Deployments – The on-demand nature of public cloud services allows any employee to use a credit card to add ungoverned technology services whenever they so choose. These expenses and services can ride under the radar as shadow IT leading to governance and security issues.
