Implementing public, private or hybrid clouds raises many questions and security concerns. Can you trust the security of your data authentication, access control, encryption and monitoring? Protecting the data itself and/or access to the database are both areas of concern. Several methods exist including standard encryption tools and tokenization. Investigate the best solutions available by discussing it with your database tool provider. Whatever solution you choose, be aware that application performance can be impacted so make sure to balance risk against performance.

In the wake of the increasing threats to the data center via cybercrime and the recent natural disasters occurring across the globe, AFCOM's Data Center Institute believes it is time to review the adequacy of existing data center business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

They maintain that the cloud offers new and dynamic approaches to the art of disaster recovery. It builds upon the techniques developed with load balancing, virtualization and geographical separation of assets. If done right, the cloud can drive multi-purpose utilization of assets, which makes disaster recovery more affordable and can provide significant ROI.

Leveraging the cloud for use in a disaster will require pre-planning and monitoring of the resources available in the cloud to ensure that what‘s needed is there when it is needed. This slideshow features eight key steps, identified by AFCOM, for taking advantage of the cloud for disaster recovery.
