Before committing to any cloud service provider, take some time to assess their credentials and know about which security protocols they use. Many of the successful attacks on cloud services occur because users are careless in their creation andusage of passwords. As business is now transacted on the move, it is vital that mobile access to cloud – based data should be secure. Being able to access files anywhere from any device is an important feature for many consumers. We decided to research and compare the top cloud companies in order to help determine which is more stable for consumer use.
The company assured customers on their forum that the reboot had nothing to do with vulnerability to Shellshock and it was just a routine update. Approximately 10% of Rackspace’s servers were rebooted to allow the security patch to be installed properly. Like AWS, Rackspace completed their system updates between the end of September and the first of October. These cloud services are, in general, reliable options for those who need to be able to access their data at all times. Both Rackspace and AWS faced Xen vulnerabilities in 2014 but were able to patch the problems with minimal downtime for their customers.
Amazon, however, gets the top spot for most reliable by keeping their reboots down to a mere 2.69 hours.

Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources over a network rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. When you store data on, or run programs from the hard drive, that’s called local storage and computing. Suppose you are the CIO(chief information officer) of the company and your responsibility is to make sure everyone gets the right hardware and right software to perform their jobs. Instead of installing a suite of software for each computer, you’d only have to load one application. The front end includes the client’s computer (or computer network) and the application required to access the cloud computing system. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and Software as a service(Saas) : we will explain them below.
Private cloud and hybrid cloud – A public cloud sells services to anyone on the Internet. Test and development – Probably the best scenario for the use of a cloud is a test and development environment.
Big data analytics – One of the aspects offered by leveraging cloud computing is the ability to tap into vast quantities of both structured and unstructured data to harness the benefit of extracting business value. File storage – Cloud can offer you the possibility of storing your files and accessing, storing and retrieving them from any web-enabled interface. Disaster recovery – This is yet another benefit derived from using cloud based on the cost effectiveness of a disaster recovery (DR) solution that provides for a faster recovery from a mesh of different physical locations at a much lower cost that the traditional DR site with fixed assets, rigid procedures and a much higher cost.
Backup – cloud is now the major player when it comes to the factor of remote data backup.

According to recent data from HIS iSuppli Research, the number of cloud storage subscriptions will triple by 2017 as businesses and consumers alike take advantage of this adolescent technology’s maturing storage ability.
Henrik Rosenthal of data management provider Quantum says that “most enterprises are still in the early adopter phase” of cloud computing, but those farther along the continuum will soon be ready to discuss their experience with public and private clouds – both what they liked and what needs improvement - in turn altering the subscription model landscape.
While individual, public cloud storage options are typically free or available for a low monthly cost, business-level cloud computing often comes with a significant cost of use. Now, however, the rise of massive public services like AWS and Google Drive, along with private cloud offerings such as those from IBM, Microsoft and Oracle is shifting the subscription landscape to one favoring the buyer, not the seller. Expect to see a focus on a “pay as you grow” approach to the cloud through 2013, rather than one that metes out standard services no matter how much computing power a business actually needs.
Companies must also be able to up their compute usage on the fly, rather than waiting for a new billing cycle or risking an overcharge for access. The days of locked-in cloud subscriptions – where companies pay for power they don’t use and can’t move their data freely – are coming to an end.

Amazon EC2 User Guide for Microsoft Windows Instances.The AMI creation process is different for instance store-backed AMIs. This post is also available in: ItalianFor people, like me, that are missing this VMworld US, there is a great recap about the VMware related news and announces. In the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), that remain the core of VMware strategy and vision, there are a lot of news and annouces, also considering the different approaches to provision your SDDC. VMware EVO:RAIL is the new VMware’s hyperconverged solution for building Software Defined Data Center. Improved business continuity and disaster recovery – Self service, policy based provisioning of DR tiers, increased scalability of protection and recovery capabilities, improvement on SRM integration with vCloud Automation Center.
Using VMware NSX, network properties will now be vMotioned as well when using long distance vMotion. Based on top of the IAAS service, vCloud Air will also deliver DR services, desktop services and platform services.

VMware vRealize Suite, a new suite for cloud management and is a complete stack for managing a SDDC and public cloud infrastructure (IaaS). Actually the idea seems similar to the VMware Go tool from some years ago (I think to remember that there was a version to be used as a SaaS, but this one seems more promising and can manage also other clouds.

Here, using a VPN or Virtual Private Network is critical to ensure data that flows to and from the cloud is always on a secure channel.Therefore, consolidate secure remote access onto a single, scalable security gateway. The SLA (Service Level Agreement) of your cloud service provider should give the details of the encryption being used. However, even cloud service providers occasionally need to be offline, for short periods, in order to maintain their systems. We looked at Azure, Amazon Web Service, Rackspace, and Google to see what their downtime rate was and how it affected consumers.
While there was the usual maintenance on going, what really affected their numbers was a disruption that occurred in November.  This service interruption caused customers to experience intermittent connectivity issues.
This caused a combined 39.77 hours where consumers could not access their virtual machines or perform any work. Unlike the problem with Azure, AWS was only down for the duration of a reboot to install patches on to the system. As with AWS, there was a vulnerability found within the Xen hypervisor open source program. The cloud storage provider staggered the downtime in their coverage area so that no two regions would be down at the same time. Unlike the other companies, there was no reason given for the minimal downtime customers experienced over the course of 2014. There were several online vulnerabilities that left cloud companies open to problems during 2014.
With the exception of a few problems here and there, the companies do have favorable uptime reports. Google Cloud also maintained minimal downtime with no explanation as to what the cause for their 4.46 hours of blackout was.
Between the computing platform and storage access, consumers lost over 50 hours of usability, making it the least reliable of these companies.
As such, it's about time educators and their hallowed halls took notice of how they can learning to the next level with the cloud's help.
The new app is aimed at businesses primarily and at helping them backup desktop, laptop and mobile devices.
The company's clients were recently targets of two different attacks, both coming in the form of emails. Among the updated features, you also have Google Drive access, although no streaming is available, and easy to use touch-screen controls. Now with the increasing number of employees your hardware and software requirement also increases.

That application would allow workers to log into a Web-based service which hosts all the programs the user would need for his or her job. In theory, a cloud computing system could include practically any computer program you can imagine, from data processing to video games. This entails securing a budget, setting up your environment through physical assets, significant manpower and time.
It is a very tedious task to backup your organization data on local disks and manage them properly. Got any questions or doubts regarding hacking or information security, ask here and I would feel glad to help you.
But with increasing interest usage comes the need for evolving subscription models based on specific business needs rather than a one-size-fits-all mantra – expect to see this as an emerging trend in 2013. Initial subscription models from providers followed a “you’ll take what we give you” mantra since standards surrounding cloud uptime, access and performance weren’t firmly established; companies were essentially at the mercy of the few providers willing to offer cloud services. Adding speed to this shift is the increasing number of open-source projects, for example OpenStack and Cloud Foundry; any provider that clings tight to old subscription models won’t be in business for long. In addition, according to Aria Systems, a cloud-based subscription billing company, providers will need to adopt a 24-hour testing, modification and adaption cycle to fulfill the needs of business customers – or they’ll simply take their business elsewhere. In addition, providers need to offer more iron-clad security guarantees about how data will be handled and stored; business IT pros are much savvier than they were several years ago. Anticipate a significant upswing in business-led subscription models through the coming year. He loves everything about digital world, technologies, social media and gadgets and has been prophetic in identifying the best ways to leverage and harness such news to drive sales growth for companies ranging from startups to huge organizations. Some new products has been announced, some products have change their name, some new released have been reveal. It’s now possible to offer SRM as a Service in vCAC’s self service portal (see also VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager 5.8 First Look).
A pricing calculator has also already been released, and VCDX Chris Colotti shares some information about this new tool:New vCloud Air Pricing Calculator. VMware vCloud Air Object Storage will include lifecycle management, versioning and large object features that will simplify and reduce management overhead and for highly available hybrid application deployments.
AirWatch provides a simplified, efficient way to manage an organization’s mobile footprint across employee-owned, corporate-owned and shared devices from a centralized console.
Seems something interesting for cloud manament and also similar to Platform9 (maybe was the same initial team that has start both projects).
Pre-created shared Distributed Logical Routers, dynamic creation of security groups per application with default isolation policy, create security groups per tenant, assign security tags per vApp. Even if dangers and concerns exist, the technologies, regulations and standards are there to minimize the security related fears.
The storage platform, while impacted, was not as hard hit as the Virtual Machines companies use to perform computing programs. The storage service was also affected by the problem with 141 outages for a total of 10.97 hours. While there were several areas affected by the downtime, the total was only 23 outages for a total of 2.69 hours. In the end, the company had approximately 7.52 hours of down time in order to patch the problem. The outages occurred sporadically throughout the year without any real cause for concern or explanation. In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. Services like Web-based e-mail programs leverage existing Web browsers like Internet Explorer or Firefox. At any time and place you have high availability, speed, scalability and security for your environment. He likes to get his hands dirty with web application penetration testing and he also loves to build tools in python. Actually is not clear on which version of vSphere will be base (the edition will be the Enterprise Plus one). Cloud storage is convenient and cost-effective, but the benefits of both are entirely dependent on how secure your information is –a stolen file or a leaked document could cost a business its existence, as competitors capitalize, market advantage is lost & customers look elsewhere.
Between the two platforms Azure experienced 50.74 hours in which users were not able to retrieve their data. The massive restart was due to a vulnerability in the open source platform — Xen hypervisor. To counter such growing demands It will be wonderful if we just have to install a single hardware and a single software.
Currently he is doing his B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engg and also works as a freelance web developer.
To Google’s credit, the interruptions were kept to a minimum, leaving their users without service for a combined 4.46 hours throughout the entire year.
