The ease-of-use, high scalability and low maintenance of cloud computing are just some of the benefits that are driving adoption of this new trend within the enterprise. Gartner confirms this in a recent report* that revealed that cloud computing rates as the second highest technology priority in 2010, behind only virtualization.
But IT managers need more specifics. What should I move to the cloud? What should I not move to the cloud? What are the risks and what are the rewards?
As promising as cloud computing is, you need to keep in mind that the cloud alternative approach for delivering IT services are accompanied by a number of significant challenges that could threaten the stability of your security strategy.
In this session we will examine the security, compliance and performance concerns associated with cloud computing. We will take a look about how you can utilize a dynamic security solution to attribute policy, limit liability and improve performance of your cloud-based technology investments. We will recommend what should and should not be moved, and why.
In this webinar we will explain how DevOps, powered by Chef automation, makes it possible to deliver infrastructure and new features at velocity within the highly regulated world of the UK Government sector.
