  • Staring down the security issues in cloud computing

    Adoption of cloud computing has no doubt been slowed by worries about the security of those out-of-sight servers and resources. While reasonable, those worries have given way over time to acceptance and even optimism.

    In this month's Modern Infrastructure cover story, TechTarget’s Trevor Jones writes about why security issues in cloud computing are not the impediment to adoption that they once were. In fact, some organizations are coming to the conclusion that their workloads run more securely in a public cloud than in an on-premises environment. Cloud service providers possess security expertise and experience at levels that aren’t as readily available on a typical IT staff, and certifications give confidence that providers can actually do all they claim to do.

    The public cloud is not a risky place to do business, though its safeguards are different from those you've put in place to protect your own data center. These differences are most clearly seen when looking at the shared-responsibility model, which addresses many of the security issues in cloud computing. Users and providers must each do their part. Otherwise, the risks will become apparent, and cloud computing won't be what you need it to be.

    This issue also looks at how a new wave of products in development brings memory and storage technologies closer together. Nonvolatile dual-inline memory modules, for example, combine the speed of memory with the persistent qualities of storage in some interesting ways. Also included is an article on how some IT shops that have adopted flash storage are simultaneously impressed and disappointed with the results. Costly flash products invariably improve performance, but they won't solve every problem or clear every bottleneck.

  • Solving enterprise-class storage challenges in the age of convergence

    In this age of data center convergence, with technology evolving faster than ever, planning how to transition from traditional yet rigid environments to more agile software-defined ones is among the trickiest challenges facing IT shops today. Fortunately, a plethora of options exist to lengthen the life of or implement a wholesale replacement of current enterprise-class storage.

    Rapid advancements and developments such as memory-based flash DIMMs, the emergence of nonvolatile memory express, greater densities and lower prices enable flash data storage to meet the requirements of the most demanding enterprise-class storage use cases.

    The varied and competitive world of cloud-based disaster recovery has changed the way we protect and secure data to recover from disaster. Discover the must-have features to consider when shopping for a disaster recovery-as-a-service provider to protect enterprise-class storage.
