Hybrid cloud is a good choice for most enterprises, but choosing the right fit for your particular organization is paramount to a successful launch.

First, assess your current infrastructure by asking specific questions of where you stand right now. These include:

Fending off targeted cyberattacks with ATA

By HP security strategist Stan Wisseman

Unlike computer worms and viruses that usually attack indiscriminately, targeted cyberattacks involve intelligent planning with respect to the chosen target or class of targets. Also evident in these attacks, is a difference in attitude: the threat agent wants to attack the victim and is willing to expend the extra effort to target them as an individual (or group).

Study after study shows that hybrid clouds are the way enterprises are going. What is a hybrid cloud? Or what are hybrid clouds?

Hybrid cloud is one IT buzz term that's self-defining and reasonably clear. In fact, hybrid is just another word for the long-standing concept of systems integration in IT - one system working with a different system. From this also sprung the notion of incompatibility. Systems incompatiblies were just accepted. Perish the thought a PC app would work on the Mac. Compatibility (a first cousin of hybrid and integration) can be granular and on many levels.

Elephants do not float in the clouds nor do big data solutions function without a high-performance, secure focused architecture. Let’s take a look at a few key attributes you will want in your “big data” solution related to the performance of your data.  This is the second of a four part blog series on data analytics.  
Performance of your data analytic solution includes the organization of the data in a way that we can use and make sense of the data collected.

Is your network pulling down your hybrid cloud?

The network can be the cloud enabler or bottleneck.

Blog-post by Chris Nerney, Thu, 01/08/2015 - 21:54

While some IT professionals remain leery of the cloud, a growing number recognize that cloud computing can enable enterprises to save on infrastructure costs while increasing scalability and flexibility. 

But cloud deployments aren’t necessarily free-floating computing platforms, unbound by the restrictions of legacy technology. The effectiveness of hybrid clouds, specifically, is tied in large part to the quality of an enterprise’s existing network.

With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) generating a tech news geyser this week, I wondered about the clouds behind all those gadgets. We are talking millions if not billions of clouds, all data silos in their own right.
