Next Eight Private Cloud Myths Debunked-6 Next

Ironically, the key to securely deploying a cloud infrastructure is transparency. Transparency is a necessary element in helping IT pros analyze the relative risks associated with two different infrastructures. Because of the transparency mismatch between public and private cloud, a private cloud is typically going to be the less risky option simply by virtue of what the CIO knows about the technology under his or her own control; less risky doesn’t necessarily mean more secure, but IT pros will clearly have a more transparent window into the security failings within their internal infrastructure than is available in a public cloud venue. The key to making a public cloud option secure lies in maintaining open lines of communication between provider and client, judging them based on how their auditors and legal teams work to help the customer clearly understand just how their data is going to be managed and protected.

CIOs and IT pros are being called upon to rapidly determine how their companies can best benefit from a cloud strategy. Adding roadblocks to their adoption roadmaps, however, is a host of myths that make it hard for IT managers to fully embrace all the cloud has to offer. Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, has compiled a list of the top eight myths surrounding private cloud computing, and has debunked those myths one by one to help put clients’ minds at ease that a cloud strategy can be right for them.

“Determining which cloud strategy is the right one for any individual company is a complex assignment that affects all of the company’s IT systems and infrastructure, as well as the way the company does business today and into the future,” says Kevin Gruneisen, vice president, Data Center Solutions for Logicalis. “Because of the significance of implementing a cloud roadmap, it’s critical for solution providers like Logicalis who have the experience in cloud computing to bring the myths – the stumbling blocks – out in the open and address them one by one.”

Some of the most common objections Logicalis hears from clients concerned about implementing a cloud strategy include the following eight myths.
