If IaaS is Going to be Heterogeneous, PaaS Will be Even More So

December 13, 2012 Added by:Ben Kepes

It’s something I’m actually quite passionate about – not using management tools that force business units to adopt a particular solution that may or may not really meet their needs. It makes no sense and actually hampers the ability for cloud to deliver the benefits it promises...

Is PaaS the optimal cloud service model option for security? (Part 1 of 2)

December 06, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

It would seem that in the IaaS cloud service delivery model unless you know what you're getting into it may be quite tough to deploy a solid, risk-averse cloud-based application. Now, PaaS is different than the other two in that it is a compromise between extensibility and built-in security features...

March 14, 2012 Added by:Neira Jones

Organisations need to ask cloud providers to disclose security controls and how they are implemented, and consuming organisations need to know which controls are needed to maintain the security of their information. Lack of thoroughness can lead to detrimental outcomes...

Understanding Cloud Security Part One

March 11, 2012 Added by:Neira Jones

The cloud provides an opportunity to re-architect older applications and infrastructure to meet or exceed modern security requirements. At other times, the risk of moving sensitive data and applications to an emerging infrastructure might exceed tolerance levels...

Cross-Border Sovereignty Issues in the Cloud

March 02, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

It's about due care, process, and not rushing into a cloud computing migration. Take a rational approach and first understand the parameters you need to operate. Then enforce with prejudice those requirements on your vendors and know the way cloud computing is delivered...

Living in the Clouds: Master the Cloud Event - Toronto

February 02, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

The Perception Risks of Multi Language PaaS

September 14, 2011 Added by:Ben Kepes

It’s exciting times for PaaS players as they race to be the broadest, deepest player – but I wonder if this headlong rush to be everyone to everything isn’t going to impact on what their developers think of them. Are the new breed of uber-platforms, trying to be all things to all people?

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...
