The cloud strategy you adopt—private, hybrid, public or multicloud—is a key factor in the decision as to which encryption key management strategy will work best for your enterprise. For best results, your key strategy should fit your long-term cloud strategy and should be applied consistently across your enterprise.
Enterprises should consider a vendor-neutral HSM-as-a-Service that provides the protection and a service level agreement (SLA) to effectively support the “shared-responsibility” model between cloud providers and their customers.
As you transition from on-premise computing to cloud computing, securing your data in the cloud is paramount. Since encryption is a preferred way to secure data, encryption key management is a critical concern. Cloud providers have responded to this need with two options: a hardware security module (HSM) or a key management service (KMS). Each approach features benefits and drawbacks.
All these innovations make France a destination of choice for digital businesses that want to establish themselves in a vendor-neutral colocation data center facility at the digital edge, regardless of industry. Digital businesses need a vendor-agnostic, multi-tenant data center provider that delivers world-class interconnection solutions, which open-up access to state-of the-art French digital infrastructure, global business ecosystems, personal and data security controls, and renewable energy resources.
Private storage and hybrid cloud platforms enable direct and secure interconnection to public clouds, while ensuring the local security and auditability of PIP data. This allows for adherence to in-country privacy legislation, as well as consistent and reliable throughput performance and user QoE at scale.
An IOA strategy prescribes a proven and repeatable architectural framework that both enterprises and service providers can leverage to directly and securely connect people, locations, clouds and data. It is this Interconnection-first approach that drivesconsistent Azure Stackhybrid clouddeployments within our global data centers.
Hybrid cloud has long been lauded as the fastest path to cloud adoption for the enterprise. In its 2017 State of the Cloud survey Microsoft reports that 75% of enterprise and mid-market companies prefer hybrid cloud deployments.
RightScale’s latest annual State of the Cloud survey shows private cloud is now playing a smaller role in both the hybrid and multicloud story as enterprises look to expand their public cloud use. The RightScale research showed that private cloud adoption fell to 72%, down from the 77% reported in the company’s 2016 survey.
These three factors are influencing greater “cloud confidence” and adoption in the region, specifically at the digital edge where there are higher concentrations of users, applications, data and clouds.
This week’s Oracle CloudWorld conference in New York City covered a wide range of topics, all focusing on the digital transformation that Oracle offers its IT and business customers through its diverse cloud PaaS and IaaS offerings. I was among the presenters and led a session where I discussed “Digital Transformation Through Interconnection.”
