There is no doubt that many SME directors are examining the value proposition of deploying their business applications in the cloud to take advantage of the agile flexible self-service that cloud technologies can provide. So I am always on the look-out for new information on what it take to deploy secure applications in the cloud.
Just the other day I received a mail-shot from OpSource.net with an attention grabbing headline “There is no such thing as a Private Cloud”. So with raised eye brow I clicked on the email and found an invitation to a webinar by Phil Wainewright called “There’s no such thing as a Private Cloud” plus a link to a white paper called “Enterprise Meet Cloud: Mapping a safe passage to enterprise cloud adoption”.
I was impressed with the webinar and white paper and I would recommend them to any one looking to use the cloud to deploy mission critical business applications and are concerned about security issues in the cloud.
Note I have no connection with the guys at OpSource.net however I have been tracking them for a number of years now (before Cloud became the in-thing). They also offer a “white-label” cloud service for those companies who want to offer their clients a cloud-based offering without having to make the $multi-million investment in creating a secure cloud hosting infrastructure.
OpSource is certainly a company to watch.
