One of the biggest myths surrounding the term “Private Cloud” is that somehow public clouds do not offer privacy. The terms public and private make people think that public cloud providers do not enforce their clouds with firewalls or encryption. They could not have been more wrong. Cloud computing is a lot more secure than people can imagine. In most cases, the technology they use is far more secure than any private infrastructure.
In retrospect, the whole thing is really quite paradoxical. At the core of all public cloud provisions, is the fact that all providers have to manage their own private clouds to deliver secure and reliable services. Even if a service piggy backs on a public cloud, it doesn’t mean that the security governing the back end access of the server is unsecure. In fact, it guarantees that the provider will take extra steps to ensure that the back end is ultra secure.
Next time you log into Netsuite or Salesforce.com or Google Apps, ask yourself why sharing the infrastructure with users from other organizations should make it any less safe than an application that runs on your own PC or on your own servers. The only difference is that a public cloud is logical and implemented with software rather than physical. But the software is as solid as a cast iron shield. With sensible precautions, there’s absolutely no reason to suppose you are any less safe on shared infrastructure.
If you are thinking about taking your processes onto the public cloud space, then rest assured – Your data will be safe. Cloud security is much more secure than you can possibly imagine. Public cloud infrastructure can support just as much privacy and security as any private enterprise network.
All you need to do is to find the right cloud deployment partner for your cloud computing services such as SADA Systems.
