Version 3.0 of Security for Cloud Computing: Ten Steps to Ensure Success has just been released for publication. As organizations consider a move to cloud computing, it is important to weigh the potential security benefits and risks involved and set realistic expectations with cloud service providers. The aim of this guide to help enterprise information technology (IT) and business decision makers analyze the security implications of cloud computing on their business.
In this webinar, authors of the paper will discuss:
• Security, privacy and data residency challenges relevant to cloud computing
• Considerations that organizations should weigh when migrating data, applications, and infrastructure to a cloud computing environment
• Threats, technology risks, and safeguards for cloud computing environments
• A cloud security assessment to help customers assess the security capabilities of cloud service providers
The Practical Guide to Cloud Computing is the CSCC’s seminal deliverable outlining key definitions, characteristics, and benefits of cloud computing. The heart of the guide is a comprehensive 10-step “Roadmap for Cloud Computing” containing guidance and strategies for the successful migration and deployment of cloud computing applications.
In this webinar, the authors will review each of the 10 steps in the guide and highlight the technical changes made to this latest version including the emergence of hybrid cloud, containers, serverless computing and microservices architectures.

The topics of interoperability and portability are significant considerations in relation to the use of cloud services, but there is confusion and misunderstanding of exactly what this entails.
Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide provides a clear definition of interoperability and portability and how these relate to various aspects of cloud computing and to cloud services.
This webinar will describe interoperability and portability in terms of a set of common cloud computing scenarios. This approach assists in demonstrating that both interoperability and portability have multiple aspects and relate to a number of different components in the architecture of cloud computing, each of which needs to be considered in its own right. The aim is to give both cloud service customers and cloud service providers guidance in the provision and selection of cloud services indicating how interoperability and portability affect the cost, security and risk involved.
85% of organisations are committed to a multi-cloud architecture. The other 15% are probably doing it by accident. However, with every additional cloud comes increased operational complexity, a new set of interfaces, and another potential security loophole to worry about.
Help your organisation nullify these challenges and succeed in a multi-cloud world by providing the key principles, solutions, technologies, and tools that enable you to deliver services consistently, efficiently, and securely across all your clouds.
In this webinar, you will learn:
5 key principles including abstraction, standardisation, and automation ‒ the new imperatives for network operations
How planning for a multi-cloud architecture will help you avoid the pitfalls of disparate environments across multiple cloud providers
Common use cases that will give you the confidence to deploy your cloud apps in a fast, controlled, and more secure manner.
Application development as we know it is changing due to advances in serverless, edge computing, and machine learning. This disruption is enabling developers to take advantage of vastly improved compute economics, new use cases that span from the cloud to the edge, and smarter algorithms. These trends will become even more prevalent in 2018.
Join Janakiram MSV, a well-respected analyst, advisor, and architect in the cloud computing space as he shares his take on:
Serverless – How, driven by boundless scalability and a pay-as-you-consume model, serverless function-as-a-service is well on the path to becoming the new cloud computing standard
Machine Learning – How cloud providers are enabling access to the fastest graphics processing units and storage to enable development of machine learning models that make applications smarter
Edge Computing – How, moving intelligence to the edge, and enabling smarter, quicker, and more cost-effective decisions, is starting to take hold
One of the biggest barriers to cloud adoption for IT organizations is the inability to move applications to and from the cloud. HC3 Cloud Unity is a collaboration between Google and Scale Computing, to solve this problem. By linking Scale’s hyperconverged HC3 on-prem with HC3 on Google Cloud Platform a massive two-way speedway has been created that means organizations no longer have to use or create different apps for the cloud, they can utilize their apps created for on-prem to run in the Google Cloud, which will be a game changer for end users, channel partners and MSPs globally.
• Learn how to use resources in the cloud and on-prem simultaneously
• Understand how a true hybrid model works
• Seamlessly bridge an on-prem local LAN with the private virtual network on GCP

For cloud computing, interoperability and portability related challenges are likely to intensify and become more difficult to manage as systems grow more complex and interconnected, especially with the use of multiple cloud services as part of a system. In this webinar, the Cloud Standards Customer Council will receive an update on a new ISO Cloud Computing Interoperability and Portability specification - ISO/IEC 19941. This new ISO standard specifies cloud computing interoperability and portability types and the relationship and interactions between these two cross-cutting aspects of cloud computing. It also provides a model to enable a clear description of interoperability and portability when building and using systems based on cloud computing.
Attending this webinar is beneficial for all parties involved in cloud computing – cloud service customers, cloud service providers, and cloud service partners – to gain a common understanding of interoperability and portability for their specific needs.
