Developing on the Cloud: Concerns and Solutions

· Cloud Zone

Download this eBook outlining the critical components of success for SaaS companies - and the new rules you need to play by.  Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.

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.
