Private cloud in the hybrid cloud era

whitePaper |

Private clouds have become a major catalyst for business growth and differentiation while supporting organizations’ need to manage highly sensitive information. Along with public clouds, they are leading the way to a far more agile, open environment for development and innovation, providing developers with unbridled access to the resources they need to design, build and deploy differentiating products and services faster than ever before. They are also leveraging automation more extensively than ever before to solve problems and improve operational efficiencies, and they are churning out substantial cost savings in the process. And these benefits are just the beginning. As cloud computing moves into the hybrid era, the business impact is expected to broaden exponentially in ways that have yet to be fully understood.

IBM Private, Public, and Hybrid Cloud Storage Solutions

whitePaper |

Before focusing specifically on storage clouds, it is useful to describe the larger IT landscape for a general understanding of cloud computing concepts. The trade press, journals, and marketing collateral have generated substantial content about cloud computing, but differ widely in exactly what constitutes an IT cloud. A helpful way to think is in general terms of ownership (public and private clouds), and categorize the types of services that an IT cloud provides. These concepts are described in some detail in this chapter. Finally, the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture is described as a definition of the basic elements of any cloud service environment.

By adopting a cloud-based IAM solution such as OneLogin, manual sign-ins on an app-by-app basis become a thing of the past. Centralized authentication through OneLogin enables users to automatically gain access to applications using a secure single sign-on protocol such as SAML. As a result, IT staff can enforce the same access policies across all applications (not just apps in the Google Apps Marketplace), and record a complete audit trail of all authentication and sign-in activity.

What You Need to Know on Secure SD-WAN

whitePaper | December 20, 2018

Today, enterprise organizations are leveraging cloud-based services across many facets of their business. Everything from telephony to accounting, to the operation of a building, is now available as a cloud-based service. Previously, these services would all have been located on premise. With the growing adoption of cloud-based services and an organization’s reliance on these services, performance and security are critical to ensuring the continued operation and success of a business—not only over the short term, but also over the long term.

An Efficient Approach to Forensic Investigation in Cloud using VM Snapshots

whitePaper |

Cloud computing has recently emerged as a technology to allow users to access infrastructure, storage, software and deployment environment based on a pay-forwhat-they-use model. Traditional digital forensics cannot handle the dynamic and multi-tenant nature of the cloud environment as it has to address various technical, legal, and organizational challenges typical to the cloud systems. The dynamic nature of cloud computing allows abundant opportunities to enable digital investigations in the cloud environment. This paper addresses the challenges of digital forensics in the cloud environment and existing solutions to ease some of the challenges. We propose an efficient approach to forensic investigation in cloud using Virtual Machine (VM) snapshots.
