Using Multicloud Storage to Improve Security for Highly Regulated Environments

About this talk

Keeping data safe and under control in highly regulated environments is business critical for every type of organization. Whether it be healthcare records, finance, or government documents, most data must be stored for several years while kept easily accessible for applications. On the other hand, exponential data growth is compromising long term sustainability of traditional infrastructures, and new solutions are needed to find the right compromise between cost, security, and accessibility. Thanks to its flexibility, cloud seems the right solution for this type of storage infrastructure, allowing movement of costs from CAPEX to OPEX while avoiding future hardware migrations and painful migration processes. Unfortunately, this flexibility presents potential downsides which can easily introduce several forms of lock-in as well as unpredictable costs to manage. These aspects are particularly important in healthcare, where an increasing number of regulations impose strict control over data, security, and the privacy of patients. Ensuring medical records are accessible from everywhere, stored safely for several years, if not decades and kept at reasonable costs, is a challenge — especially when infrastructure costs are included in the equation. Fortunately, innovative approaches allow the best cloud selection for any single transaction in terms of performance and cost, and they grant seamless data mobility in the backend while improving security and traceability. Explore these data security topics and more as GigaOm Research brings together experts in enterprise data storage and IT infrastructure, featuring GigaOm Analyst Enrico Signoretti, Leonovus VP Product Management, Tim Bramble and VP Marketing and Partnerships, Alyson Gaffney for this 1-hour webinar discussing innovative solutions for infrastructure strategies in this area.
