Private clouds can be a stepping stone to a hybrid public/private architecture. This session will look at workload portability, focusing on which applications are candidates for public clouds and how to prepare applications that can run in several environments.
Description to come.
On Day Two of Enterprise Cloud Summit, we'll turn our eye outward to look at the many public cloud offerings that are levelling the IT playing field. Public cloud providers offer pay-as-you-go economics and tremendous flexibility; but they also create new security, portability, and performance concerns. Once the exclusive domain of web startups, today enterprises big and small are finding ways to incorporate public cloud platforms into their IT strategy. Whether you're deciding how to embrace them or want to learn from what others are doing, Enterprise Cloud Summit is the place to do it.

IT professionals and even cloud providers are split on cloud security: half of them see it as a way to get stronger, more reliable computing that's secured by experts and far from the risk of in-house fraud; others see the potential of loss of control that may increase their organization’s risk profile. Either way, cloud developments call many security assumptions into question. This discussion format panel will give Cloud Providers a chance to offer diverging opinions about the myths and realities of security in the cloud, and how their companies see the future of cloud security developing.
Moving to the cloud raises lots of questions, mostly about security. Providers worthy of your business should answer them clearly and honestly. Amazon Web Services has built an infrastructure and established processes to mitigate common vulnerabilities and offer a safe compute and storage environment. Steve Riley will discuss common cloud security concerns, show how AWS protects its infrastructure from internal and external attack, and explain how you can take advantage of the security features of AWS in your own applications as you extend your enterprise into the cloud.
