Cloud Networking: Turning Security Upside Down at Cloud Expo 2011 New York

Cloud Expo 2011 New York $800 Savings here! One of the biggest concerns for enterprises considering public cloud services is the notion that they are inherently unsecure. Many cloud implementations treat security as an afterthought - layering it on top of the virtualization server. A more secure solution is a "multi-layer approach," a series of security layers that begin at the base of the network and protect an organization's assets to the service layer. In their session at the 8th International Cloud Expo, Eric Chiu, president and co-founder of HyTrust, John Rowell, CTO and SVP, Operations at OpSource, and Jim French, Distinguished System Engineer at Cisco, will discuss the best practices for securing the cloud, comparing and contrasting various approaches for providing edge-to-edge security.

The Evolution of IT to the Cloud at Cloud Expo New York

Cloud Expo New York $500 Savings here! IT has already jumped on the SaaS bandwagon. They've realized that it is easier to use a SaaS application than to build and support a custom application in-house. As cloud computing becomes increasingly pervasive, businesses will move more and more of their infrastructure into a public or private cloud, initially looking to benefit from the economics and efficiency. As end users become more familiar with consuming infrastructure on-demand, the role of IT will change from being more project-oriented to being more service-oriented, essentially delivering IT-as-a-Service. Historically, IT initiatives have been implemented on a per-project, integration basis - essentially, the antithesis of how cloud consumption models operate. How, then, would organizations rectify their business and IT objectives to ensure they remain on similar ... (more)
