November 06, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

Cloud Confusion is Considerable

October 28, 2012 Added by:Bill Gerneglia

If you are the CIO of your organization and you spent the last decade locking down your data center hardware, patching your OSs, developing a disaster recovery plan, and securing your applications are you really in a rush to move the operation and applications to the cloud?

Accessibility and the Untold Issue Around Cloud Computing

September 26, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

The decision was made during the consultation process that universal design and accessibility issues should be outside the scope of the document. That was a necessary decision as the drive was to come up with a readily consumable document that vendors could easily comply with...

Preparing Developers for Tomorrow’s Cloudy World

September 17, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

"The advent of cloud computing has removed infrastructure as a barrier to rapid and massive scaling of applications. [IaaS and Paas have] made it possible for a developer to create an application one day and have it utilized by hundreds of thousands of users the next..."

CIOs Seek Value But See Challenges with Cloud Computing

September 16, 2012 Added by:Bill Gerneglia

The face of corporate IT changes dramatically with a move to the cloud – no longer do people need to spend time racking and stacking servers, patching software and other low level tasks – the fact is that in the long run individual organizations will not have email server administrators, desktop software support personnel or systems administrators...

Are Applications and Services on the Public Cloud Secure?

September 15, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

Any application that was built to be secured independently of the environment will do as well in a public cloud as it did in your private data center. If you build the application to be low-risk independent of your environmental controls you shouldn't have to worry where it lives...

Data is the New Perimeter for Cloud Security

September 12, 2012 Added by:Mike Gault

The security market in 2012 is estimated at $60 billion, yet adding more layers of perimeter security may be completely useless against a determined sysadmin working on the inside. The end result is that your data might or might not be secure – you simply have no way to prove it...

Data Mobility and Security Biggest Cloud Computing Concern

September 10, 2012 Added by:Bill Gerneglia

BYOD issues continue to cause headaches for IT departments. Security mandates grow exponentially as they struggle to prevent data leaks from private networks onto public clouds. The biggest concerns with public clouds are the loss of data and control of the location of that data...

Keeping Safe In The Cloud

September 09, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

“With the cloud, you don’t own anything. You already signed it away through the legalistic terms of service with a cloud provider that computer users must agree to... the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it...”

DMTF's Cloud Infrastructure Standard

September 07, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

CIMI is arguably more complex than a simple standard – it reflects that people want to rubber stamp a standard, but also want to deliver proprietary functionality as a point of differentiation from the competition. CIMI is a positive initiative, but the proof is in the pudding...

Steps to Ensure a Smooth(er) Migration to a Cloud Service

August 30, 2012 Added by:Bozidar Spirovski

Assuming you have selected a service to migrate to a cloud provider, and have selected the cloud provider, even after contract signing, things may still be far from complete.

On Cloud Outages (Yeah, They Happen)

August 29, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

Cloud vendors are quick to point out how reliable their data centers are with redundant channels, power supply structures and the like. Any application running on the cloud needs to consider the same issues – it is unrealistic to rely on one single data center – a chain is only as strong as its weakest link...

How the Cloud Disrupted the Corporate Ecosystem

August 29, 2012 Added by:Barrie Hadfield

Mobile Infrastructure: The Elephant in the Data Center

August 25, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

One area that seems to be ignored is the infrastructure that supports increasingly cloud dependent mobile devices, possibly due to many not seeing server exploits and defenses as anything new. However, as the popularity of mobile devices push services such as the iCloud, exposure increases exponentially...
