Tomasz discussed what companies should consider when selecting a cloud storage provider and advised on how to protect data when using private, public, or hybrid cloud models:
When a company deploys a new cloud solution, they may immediately begin granting privileges.
While cloud providers may know how to protect their data centers, companies themselves need to focus on how to protect the data and access to those services. This requires an understanding of how encryption works, how and where data is stored, compliances from a load perspective, who has access to it, and who manages that access.
These are the most important factors of managing security on these platforms. Each platform has its own tools and mechanisms for security management.
Cloud services explained
Tomasz also gave insight on the differences between Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service offerings:
When using IaaS, the complexity of buying, hosting, and maintaining their own hardware is removed. Instead of dealing with actual machines, the user requests an amount of computing power and network…
Following this, someone scratched their head and decided to increase the level of abstraction – if we need a SQL server, why do we need to deploy it as a computer? We just need the service.
This is how Platform as a Service works – instead of focusing on the boxes running a task, there is a set of services such as web servers or SQL servers which provide building blocks.
