Cloud Infographic: Cyber Threats People have always feared that cloud computing is inherently lacking in security because of the distribution methods used, allowing it to be more public than necessary. But research and reports indicate that it is not less secure than enterprise computing as they actually both suffer from the same types of attack. While organizations and businesses are the target of online attacks, the real entryways for these attacks are unsecured personal computers. These form the backbone of the cyber-criminal’s arsenal. Hijacked computers referred to as zombies or bots are being used to make brute force attacks on different networks
The Next Evolution In Cloud Storage “An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.” - Victor Hugo (1802-1885), celebrated French author. More than two years ago, I wrote that cloud computing is “an idea whose time has come”). Today, I’m tempted to describe Dispersed Storage in similar terms. Allow me to explain. Cloud computing has opened up whole new possibilities in terms of flexibility, mobility and cost efficiencies. But however intangible the Cloud may be for the end-user, at its most granular level, it is dependent on physical infrastructure. And it’s here that
Ethics On The Cloud Ethics and morality have always been dictated by culture and the times. It takes on different forms and their forms from different places and time periods often contradict each other, and what is considered ethical or moral in one era may not be in another. The World Wide Web, and now more recently the move to Cloud Computing and the social revolution is changing the norms of our world’s cultures and ethics and morality along with it. Just a decade ago it was very unethical to read someone else’s letter, it still is, but the medium
Grading Students in the Cloud One of the most common characteristics of new cloud computing-driven innovations in education has been the transmission of traditional academic practices (tutoring, assignment collection, extra help meetings, etc.) into the new platforms and opportunities made available by the cloud. While it is easy to get swept up in the more interesting or flashy education innovations, the best new tools available to teachers by way of cloud computing are mostly 21st century versions of traditional practice in the classroom. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that one of the newest and most
Effects of Hardware Problems in Cloud based Systems Hardware has a key and exigent role in the modern Cloud architectures. No matter how optimized and state of the software we produce if the compatible and transcendent hardware is not deployed, the software will be of no use because of compatibility issues. Cloud computing asks for a colossal and efficient data centre oriented hardware structure which must be fast, responsive and compatible with SLA based applications. Failing to sub serve the software requirements will result in serious QoS issues resulting in depletion of profitability for the Cloud service providers. Enterprise level
