In the cloud computing world, 2012 is shaping up to be a continuation in the trend of cloud-based data center services increasing their footprint at both the consumer and corporate levels. Clearly, this data center virtualization trend will drive an even greater increase in cloud IP traffic. 2012 also appears to be a year of changing relationships for corporate IT departments, largely due to increased cloud-based initiatives.
One cannot assume that industry giants in the consumer world like Amazon or Google are the only companies able to leverage cloud computing as a business opportunity though.   Small to medium-sized businesses with cloud investments stand to benefit as much as their larger compatriots.
The environment is one benefactor of the cloud computing movement, with nearly two-thirds of the companies in the CSC study reporting reduced waste and less energy consumption. Nearly all surveyed companies report a general increase in IT productivity, and over 80 percent of those firms have seen improvements within six months of implementing a cloud-based strategy.  Moving to the cloud does not seem to cause a considerable variation regarding data security concerns though, as only 25 percent of those polled feel less secure on the cloud.
A primary area driving cloud computing growth is the increasing number of mobile devices; companies like Apple, Amazon, Microsoft and others have competitive offerings with their cloud storage platforms. In addition to a range of corporate-level cloud computing services, Microsoft recently introduced Windows Live SkyDrive, its consumer level cloud-storage offering. With mobile device proliferation driving consumers to the cloud in both the corporate and consumer markets, let alone the increase in cloud-based data center traffic, there is little doubt that 2012 looks to be a watershed year in cloud computing. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules protect the privacy and security of individually identifiable health information.

Studies by Cisco and others show an almost exponential growth in cloud data traffic for 2012 and beyond.  The rapid proliferation of mobile devices, combined with data server virtualization, serves to fuel increased dependence on the cloud for both computer processing and storage needs.
North America and Western Europe shared leadership in access to both mobile and landline broadband services. There are more employees using smartphones and tablet computers, so access to corporate documents across all devices becomes more vital, as does an increased dependence on cloud-based storage.

Whether the information is on a computer, paper, or other media, there are responsibilities for safeguarding health information. But Moretti Group has found a way to become compliant and help our contractors become compliant.
They continuously monitor the regulations to ensure that your policies remain current amid the changes. Cisco also predicts that by 2014, more than half of all server workloads will be cloud-based.
On the other hand, companies with their own investments in cloud-based data centers potentially have new business opportunities to resell their services to clients or business partners.
The CSC study reported that 33 percent of the 3,500 companies surveyed listed mobility as the main reason to move to the cloud, with cost savings coming in second at 17 percent.
More about that later and first a bit of history and why HIPAA Compliance should be important to you. The HIPAA Privacy Rule covers protected health information (PHI) in any medium, while the HIPAA Security Rule covers electronic protected health information (e-PHI).
