Taming the Cloud - Provisioning and Security

September 08, 2011 Added by:Rafal Los

Whether deploying IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS, provisioning is the key to having a safe, secure, and stable environment. With the fragility and complexity of today's cloud deployments, you can't afford a single error which could unwind everything. I seem to recall this happening to a Cloud vendor recently...

Forensics for Network, Internet, and Cloud Computing

September 06, 2011 Added by:Tony Campbell

A number of chapters had a very long and complete reference section, while a few chapters had no reference section at all, yet it was obvious that they required a reference section. And poor screenshots and lack of references seems like laziness on behalf of the author and publisher...

Vivek Kundra Makes the Case for Government Cloud

September 01, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"...governments around the world are wasting billions of dollars on unnecessary information technology. This problem has worsened in recent years because of what I call the 'I.T. cartel.' This powerful group of private contractors encourages reliance on inefficient software and hardware..."

Four Cloud Trends on the CIOs Radar

August 26, 2011 Added by:Bill Gerneglia

Data Center Transformation: CIOs are feeling the stress of virtualization. The goal is to have more than 100 VMs on each server by 2012. That’s putting stress on the netwok and storage infrastructures which look outdated. The CIO needs to consider the impact of this stress...

Microsoft and Amazon Outages – The Need for More Redundancy

August 23, 2011 Added by:Ben Kepes

I’ll not delve into the issues around failover – clearly the lightning strike was a catastrophic event that overcame the protection that both providers have against upstream events. But imagine an uber-catastrophic event that knocked out the entire Dublin Amazon data center...

The Great Cloud Blockage: 80/20

August 16, 2011 Added by:Ben Kepes

The Catch 22 situation – IT cannot free up sufficient dollars to move legacy applications to the Cloud. And because they therefore have to focus a significant proportion of their budget on keeping the lights on, the opportunities for investment in these activities are eroded...

Hybrid Delivery: Corporate Applications and the Cloud

August 13, 2011 Added by:Rafal Los

As applications start to cross network boundaries between the traditional corporate network and cloud-based providers and service vendors, there is an imminent collision between the application development practices of yore, and the differing requirements around architecting for the cloud...

Enterprise IT - Surprisingly Repetitive

August 08, 2011 Added by:Jason Remillard

The lines between ‘Internet’ and ‘Enterprise’ are blurry, but I am still amazed at the rapid speed of which this is occurring and the velocity of not just change, but the impact of this change on solutions and integrations for standard equations of IT such as Security...

On SIEM Services

August 06, 2011 Added by:Anton Chuvakin

When a SIEM vendor tries to sell you services, it is NOT vendor greed – but simply common sense. And if you say “no”, it is not “saving money” – but being stupid. SIEM success out-of-the-box, while real in some cases, is a pale shadow of what a well-thought through deployment looks like...

Rolling Out the Cloud In Australasia

August 03, 2011 Added by:Ben Kepes

It’s a direct allusion to Government's and corporate’s concerns around location of data – taking advantage of a short term point of difference makes sense for a small provider like that has only a limited window of opportunity to grow before larger and better funded competitors come to market...

Informal Cloud Buyers - A Growing IT Problem

August 02, 2011 Added by:Bill Gerneglia

Without central control of purchases, there is no homogeneous IT solution provider across the organization. This leads to inconsistent service, lack of collective purchasing discounts available at higher user volumes, and lack of standard IT policies, making for an IT management nightmare...

On Disaster Recovery for SMBs

July 27, 2011 Added by:Ben Kepes

There really is no excuse for not having a good DR strategy in place – having come through a serious earthquake myself, and having to relocate businesses several times – I’ve seen the pain caused by a reliance on physical hardware that isn’t replicated elsewhere...

Federal CIO Vivek Kundra Warns of IT Vendor Cartel

July 22, 2011 Added by:Headlines

In what could best be described as a proclamation reminiscent of Eisenhower's admonition of the powerful "military industrial complex", outgoing Federal CIO Vivek Kundra issued statements warning of security risks compounded by "an IT cartel" of vendors perpetuating big contract boondoggles...

The Cloud - Time for Some Serious Consideration

July 15, 2011 Added by:Bozidar Spirovski

The cloud is very ripe for web services. But before you choose one, be careful to do a serious consideration on your pros and cons. If you can match your application/site to a cloud service, you can bring it to a new level of efficient operation...

On Cloud Computing and Things Outside the US

July 13, 2011 Added by:Ben Kepes

I know the concerns around international mail orders, but I live in New Zealand, not Nigeria. Skinomi is shutting off commerce with 95% of the global population, and doing so in a way that provides no differentiation between an economy with low levels of credit card fraud and one rife with dodginess...
