re: Your Cloud Provider Is Not The Boss
Many cloud providers are not trying to be the boss. They're trying to get their customers to effectively manage their use of the cloud infrastructure. Not everyone understood that at first with Amazon Web Services. Some learning required. The IT manager needs to understand the resource in order to deliver the sought-after customer experience.
