Adam Stern to Cover Best Practices in Service Delivery, Security and Backup At Cloud Computing Association Event in Miami
MIAMI, Fla. (April 12, 2012) – IT professionals in educational institutions and government agencies need to be confident that the data they move to the cloud will be secure and that the systems safeguarding that data are reliable. At the Cloud Computing in the Public Sector Conference, to be held in Miami on April 16-17, Infinitely Virtual CEO Adam Stern will explore how public sector organizations can ensure high-level security and reliability as they increase their investment in cloud-based IT operations.
Infinitely Virtual is a leading provider of virtual server cloud computing services and a strong proponent of advanced security and backup in cloud computing systems.
A member of the “Reliability and High-Availability Service Delivery” panel, Stern will examine the traditional approaches to reliability in cloud computing, and explain why IT professionals should be looking at other threats to downtime as well.
“We typically think of power loss, hardware failure or Internet downtime as reliability issues, when we also need to look at attacks originating from the Internet, malware, data loss, poor configuration, and other events that can impact reliability and productivity,” Stern says.
Stern will also address the best technologies available in intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS) — which are designed to prevent attacks and extend far beyond traditional firewalls — and the concept of “application-consistent backup” and why it is the optimum restoration method in the event of data loss.
