Data Protection and the Cloud: New Threats on the Horizon

Tim Matthews, PGP, Senior Director, Product Marketing
The IT landscape is being changed dramatically by new cloud based services. But along with the significant advantages of cloud computing come a series of new risks. The relative infancy of platforms used to support a completely new infrastructure raises questions about just how secure cloud deployments truly are. How do you defend multi-tenant architectures housing data from multiple organizations from attackers?. How do you report on data and applications in an outsourced environment?
Whether moving storage or compute to the cloud, an organization’s data must still be protected. Organizations considering moving some or all of their IT infrastructure need to understand the risk tradeoffs they will be faced with. This talk will cover the following areas:
• Fundamentals of data protection
• Risks and costs associated with data breach and theft
• How various cloud architectures affect data protection
• Considerations for moving storage and compute to the cloud
Attendees will be given a grounding in data protection techniques, breach laws and the organizational costs of data loss. Analysis of recent attacks and the latest information on data protection best practices will be used to illustrate.

  • Is the data center industry heading for a quartz crisis? May 14 2014 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In the 1970s and 1980s the Swiss watchmaking industry went almost extinct as Asian companies such as Seiko moved to factory mass manufacturing of the new, cheaper and more accurate quartz watch movement. The Swiss industry shrunk rapidly, most of the brands went under or were sold and had to find a new way to survive. The Swiss survived, at much smaller volume, by producing high cost mechanical watches which were expensively marketed as luxury items, a type of positional good (a good whose value is determined by its desirability to others) and creating an artificial scarcity.

    We have a similar economic event happening in the data center market today. The design, construction and operation of a data center to the minimum TCO has become commoditised, suppliers and operators no longer have any “secret sauce” or knowledge that enables them to substantially outperform the market, at the same time cloud technologies are driving down the market price at a huge rate thanks to the uber operators such as Google and Amazon.

    The questions this raises are;
    1. Which of the current types of data center or equipment supplier will survive?

    2. Will the whole market go to cloud services purchased by the hour and eliminate data center demand entirely?

    3. Will the modular, factory built, data centers become the Quartz watch and virtually eliminate legacy custom design and ‘stick build’?

    4. Are the modular vendors offering real TCO value for money or are they the new luxury brands selling only perceived value and marketing?

    5. What happens to the value of existing data centers for enterprise owner operators and data center businesses?

  • OpenStack & Optimized Hardware: Avoid Problems That Can Stop Deployment Apr 30 2014 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Frictionless access to information makes everyone think they can do this at home. But, in fact, deploying OpenStack on optimized hardware hardware presents a hatful of challenges that your infrastructure team might not have thought about.

    In this session, we'll look at a range of challenges that can stop your project before it makes it to deployment. The session is divided into two topics that we’ll dive into:

    (a) Introduction to scalability techniques: clouds from a hardware perspective.
    Building a large cloud is more than just throwing hardware into a hall and lighting it up. Network, storage, compute and scaling strategies must be designed in from the beginning. In the current state of the art of OpenStack, some decisions are easy to unwind later on and some are impossible. This portion of the presentation will focus on describing the steps you need to execute to build a successful cloud and which decisions you can push off to later.

    (b) The second section of the session will focus on strategies to simplify the optimized hardware experience. If you’re assembling racks on onsite, you need a plan to deal with everything from cabling and airflow to the NIC firmware and drivers. Each of these details can delay your project and run up costs. We’ll also look at the trend toward scalable rack-level units that are factory integrated and tested.

    Attendees will also learn about some of the simple things that are obvious with enterprise hardware but can be challenging in any optimized hardware environment. Examples include power on/off, power monitoring, system health/event monitoring, remote console access.

    You'll leave this session armed with practical knowledge about running OpenStack on Open Compute and other optimized hardware hardware.
  • BYOD Challenges, Recommendations & Best Practices from Box Apr 24 2014 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    85% of enterprises permit BYOD, but only 25-30% of them actually have policies and technology to manage these devices. What is your business doing to ensure that the content on that device stays secure, regardless of what device your employees are using? If you are considering moving to a BYOD strategy or are in the midst of doing so, join this webinar to learn how to develop and execute a BYOD plan in your company. We'll talk about major challenges from creating a BYOD strategy and best practices from ensuring that the content on your device stays secure with Box.

  • Open Source and Cloud Storage - Enabling business, or a technology enabler? Apr 16 2014 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    To some, open source cloud computing and storage are inclusive, yet to others they can be exclusive of each other used for separate purposes. Likewise, some open source and cloud technologies, solutions and services are marketed as business enablers, yet are there technology concerns to be considered? On the other hand, the focus can be on the technology as an enabler, yet does it address business needs and concerns or become a barrier. The key to leveraging open source and cloud technologies is realizing what to use when, where, why and how, not to mention in new ways vs. simply as a replacement for doing things how they have been done in the past.

    Key themes:
    · What is your focus and why are you interested in Open Source and Cloud solutions
    · Software Defined Marketing vs. Software Defined Management and enablement
    · Balancing costs of for fee vs. for free (time, money, staffing, on-going support)
    · How to leverage hard products (hardware, software, valueware, services) to create your soft product (services)
    · Using various tools, technologies and solutions in hybrid ways
    · What are the major open source and cloud (computing and storage) solutions, technologies and services
    · Who is doing what and how you can leverage those activities
  • OpenStack and Open Standards Storage Apr 16 2014 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Openstack has been gaining momentum in the IaaS space for some time now. It is a great example of Open Source collaboration and many contributors (more than 15,000!) coming together to make new technology.

    Often, large vendors and the organisations that represent them are seen as incompatible with the Open Source model, particularly in the storage arena. Big Tin is not required.

    In this presentation Glyn Bowden will show what SNIA can offer the Open Source community, the importance of standards and where SNIA are already contributing.
  • Hadoop for Big Data Storage and Processing in the Enterprise Recorded: Apr 15 2014 46 mins
