Everybody loves Day 1. You’ve spent months planning and designing your new platform. The meetings, the whiteboard sessions, the team huddles, they all lead to this: that new server smell. The hardware is up and running, the lights are blinking. We’re moving workloads. Now what?
It’s Day 2. That hardware you ordered? It didn’t account for the development team’s new vision of the billing system. That software you deployed? A critical security update was just released. Those workloads you moved? They need more resources. The fun part is over. Now the hard work begins.
