Summary

This book provides solutions for securing important data stored in something as nebulous sounding as a cloud. A primer on the concepts behind security and the cloud, it explains where and how to store data and what should be avoided at all costs. It presents the views and insight of the leading experts on the state of cloud computing security and its future. It also provides no-nonsense info on cloud security technologies and models.

Securing the Cloud: Security Strategies for the Ubiquitous Data Center takes the position that cloud security is an extension of recognized, established security principles into cloud-based deployments. It explores how those principles can be put into practice to protect cloud-based infrastructure and data, traditional infrastructure, and hybrid architectures combining cloud and on-premises infrastructure.

Cloud computing is evolving so rapidly that regulations and technology have not necessarily been able to keep pace. IT professionals are frequently left to force fit pre-existing solutions onto new infrastructure and architectures for which they may be very poor fits. This book looks at how those "square peg/round hole" solutions are implemented and explains ways in which the pegs, the holes, or both may be adjusted for a more perfect fit.
