Businesses are adopting the hybrid cloud model in droves, in which they use both their own virtualized private set up as well as systems hosted by other providers or clients.
In a hybrid cloud setup companies have the opportunity to keep sensitive data within their data centers, with that ensuring security of data. Many organizations consider the public cloud is less stable and secure than their physical data center, while placing applications and underlying infrastructure in the hands of third party cloud service providers. There are number of clear benefits, challenges in this arrangement.
Security: – Maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of corporate data in the hands of a cloud service provider raises the risk associated with data that resides in the cloud environment. So storing data in a public cloud environment and delivering application as service to client put the companies under serious risk to data loss?
It depends on the public cloud, various security practices must be followed by the cloud service provider, such as separating customer first at network level and then using multi technologies to ensure complete segregation at storage level for all customers.
Networking: – Network security that helps to prevent the malicious attacks on critical systems and allow only authorized users to access systems hosted in the cloud. When the cloud hosting service incorporates appropriate network and physical security into the cloud infrastructure and delivery of its service then the companies are assured that data protection will be better than in their on-premise data center.
Ricoh Data Center, India is one of the emerging cloud service providers that understand the risk associated with the customer valuable data and ensures the security and integrity of customer data, by making both of these challenges on top priority.
Adjustment and Reprogramming:– Today, in migrating components and many other applications from on-site to the public cloud, used by enterprises have inter-dependencies and complex interaction, and moving them to the cloud without any preparations could make it unable to work.Tags:
