Developing on the Cloud: Concerns and Solutions

Free Resource

Discover a centralized approach to monitor your virtual infrastructure, on-premise IT environment, and cloud infrastructure – all on a single platform.

Cloud computing is all about taking application resources, moving them from dedicated environments to shared environments, and expecting to deliver value either faster or at a lower price point. Security is all about isolating and protecting IT resources from both known and unknown problems. Security is often listed as the #1 cloud computing concern of IT professionals precisely because of these conflicting models. Being able to solve security challenges while unlocking the value of faster-delivery or lower-costs is critical to the success of a cloud offering.

Next week, DZone will publish its Definitive Guide to PaaS and IaaS solutions. In it, you'll find 100 pages of detailed analysis, comparisons, and independent third-party reviews to help you make your ultimate decision about which PaaS or IaaS service is right for you and your business.
