Armed with a set of services, the platforms on which they run, and the management tools to control them, it's time to turn things over to the users. Self-service controls let those users provision, deploy, and relinquish the IT services they need in minutes rather than days. This session will look at how self-service controls should be delivered to ensure reliable, adaptable use of resources in real time.
On-demand computing resources are the most disruptive change in IT of the last decade, and much of that disruption begins at home. Day One of Enterprise Cloud Summit will focus on private clouds -- radically new ways to combine virtualization, automation, and self-service models in order to change how you deliver IT to your business.

Virtualization impacts every major compliance standard and requires fundamental changes to security practices. What should this mean to you? This session will discuss what gaps are introduced in the move from physical to virtual where compliance is concerned, and prescribe specific steps to ensure compliance for production deployments. Regulatory areas discussed will include FISMA, DIACAP, PCI, HIPAA and SOX/GLBA. The session will also discuss how to build a framework for securing virtual data centers and private clouds, and how to take physical security constructs like Zones and propagate them to the virtual infrastructure to enable consistent security across the entire data center. You will learn how various hypervisor security architectures coupled with VM Introspection and automation can deliver dynamic, granular insights into security.
