Proxios Releases the Best Practices for Cloud Security in New White Paper

(PRWEB) April 03, 2014

Proxios released a new white paper that outlines the best practices for securing your IT infrastructure when moving to the cloud.

While the cloud offers significant business advantages, if it is not secured properly it can result in substantial damage. Thats why Proxios is helping organizations understand the best ways for the cloud provider and cloud service customer to maintain the highest level of security.

A cloud service provider should have numerous security layers in a cloud infrastructure including: Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), virus and malware audits, full patching and audits, multiple firewalling layers, DMZs and more. Also, the datacenter itself should have multiple levels of physical security.

Each cloud customer should implement security precautions from each endpoint device. A structured security training program for each individual business can help address social engineering threats, which are elaborate tricks used to gain access to a companys systems.

To learn how Proxios helps maintain the highest level of security in the cloud, read the Securing the Proxios Cloud whitepaper

Proxios Outlines the Difference Between SaaS and ITaaS in New White Paper

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) November 21, 2013

The cloud isnt a one size fits all solution, but a broad range of services designed for different business needs. In order to understand how the cloud can benefit an organization, its important to understand the different components of cloud computing and how they compare to each other. Proxios details two of the more popular cloud services, SaaS and ITaaS, in its new white paper: Whats Wrong with this Cloud?

SaaS

Software as a Service (SaaS) is the delivery of software solutions over the Internet and accessed via the Web browser installed on a users PC. They are meant to be a substitute for in-house deployments of a single application.

ITaaS

IT as a Service (ITaaS) is an outsourced IT infrastructure that provides the capabilities of a IT department without having to own, maintain or support a network. Organizations get all the benefits of advanced technology and applications while reducing dependence on servers, desktops, software and other technical equipment. Plus, it allows organizations to maintain a current system configuration through a virtual desktop.

What is a Virtual Desktop?

A Proxios Virtual Desktop is a Microsoft Windows desktop deployed to your PC either across the Internet or through one of Proxios managed private connections. The Proxios Virtual Desktop interface has all of the familiarity of a standard Microsoft desktop and the applications running on your PC now, but the processing is entirely handled by a series of high availability virtual servers within one of Proxios’ secure data centers. Your PC effectively becomes a terminal, or merely a means of connecting to your data and software.

About Proxios

Proxios is headquartered in Richmond, Virginia and is the business of IT as a Service (ITaaS). As a pioneer in the field beginning the cloud journey in 1999, we have proven knowledge and experience to move customer infrastructure to the cloud, freeing customers to do what they do best, driving real business value from the applications that help run your business. We provide a wide range of cloud services to our customers throughout the United States and Canada including telephony and collaboration, business virtual desktops, and application hosting.

OW2 Announces CompatibleOne Open Source Cloud Broker White Paper


Paris, France (PRWEB) May 07, 2012

OW2, the global open source community for open source middleware and generic applications, announced today the publication of the first CompatibleOne white paper. Under the title CompatibleOne Open Source Cloud Broker Architecture Overview, the white paper outlines the four-step functional manifest-to-service provisioning cycle of the CompatibleOne broker, provides an overview of its logical model, introduces its core concepts and describes its communication architecture.

The white paper presents CompatibleOne’s four-step functional manifest-to-service provisioning cycle:

a) The first step addresses users needs and their requirements that are expressed in what is called the Manifest.

b) In the second step, the Manifest is validated for accounting and billing and technical feasibility. The output of the second step is the Provisioning plan which contains information required to achieve the infrastructure described by the user or initiator within the Manifest.

c) The third step is the execution of the Provisioning plan by the core engine of the broker which then generates the Provisioning Control Graph.

d) In the fourth step, guided by the Provisioning Control Graph, the Broker

negotiates with different cloud service providers and engages the resources to be delivered to the user in the form of the Service.

This white paper clearly defines the role of the open source cloud broker in the cloud computing environment comments Jean-Pierre Laisne, Bull Open Source Strategist and leader of the CompatibleOne project, the CompatibleOne team is proud to demonstrate that interoperability and portability of workloads are not an issue anymore and that vendor lock-in can be avoided, he adds.

In CompatibleOne, models and documents are shared by developers and operators, customers and vendors in the form of a Manifest, it is a blueprint for developers, operators and DevOps.
