Methodology Of Cloud Computing Risk Assessment A Break in the Cloud’s Silver Lining Though cloud computing is considered as the new paradigm of computing, it should not be considered as a new technology but merely a new implementation or application of existing technology, specifically networking and telecommunications technology. So this brings with it some inherent security risks, with some security experts stating that “the economies of scale and flexibility (that cloud computing brings) are both a friend and a foe from a security point of view.” When your application and data is streamed half way around the world from your
Forget the Time 100: Here’s the Coolest in Cloud Cloud computing always seems to progress at a rapid pace. Over just the past few years, the cloud as an industry model has matured from a promising yet passable curiosity enjoying fifteen minutes of fame into an indelible and mushrooming contributor to the contemporary technology community. But capitalizing on cloud demands serious legwork in terms of deciding with whom to invest your time and money. Such almost breakneck growth in cloud has made it a bit tricky to sort those who are truly shaping what cloud will become from their convenient
The Cloud Aggregators Are Coming! When we started to think about cloud aggregation at Hojoki back in 2010, cloud apps had been around for some time but were not the de facto standard in many teams like we see today.

With so many apps in the cloud,
Cloud Computing Canada: HP ‘Master The Cloud’ Event (Toronto) – Part 3 Continued from: Part 1 , Part 2 The HP “Mastering The Cloud” Event drew to a close around 4:30, after one last blast of hot dogs, pretzels and other salty refreshments. As someone who has attended, bought space in , and spoken at trade shows, and as an independent blogger, I would rate this one to be quite successful in terms of affirming HP’s role as an authority and credible partner in cloud management and cloud security. A key ingredient in this assessment is what I call the 4:00 “bedraggle factor,” in which most people who have spent
Cloud Computing – A Look Back to Basics There has been much talk about the cloud and about how it can help businesses and how cloud computing is one of the top technologies of the future. Although, at this point it is probably more appropriate to say cloud computing is the present and the future. But starting with the name, cloud computing, and also looking at the vast majority of articles written about the cloud, one may think that it is an incorporeal thing, floating out there somewhere and providing services. The truth is, cloud computing as it is today

Cloud computing is often hyped as a cool new technology and a near-cure-all; move all that complicated IT infrastructure to the cloud so your company can be more efficient and save money and space in the process. Deloitte venture capitalist Mark Jensen strongly believes in cloud computing’s value proposition, but with some important caveats. “The problem we’ve had with the cloud is that a lot of fundamental technologies related to security and privacy don’t exist yet; making sure you’re not compromising someone’s personal information,” Jensen, managing partner for Deloitte’s National Venture Capital Services group, told InternetNews.com. “All that’s still be
