Do you know the truth about cloud — public, private and hybrid? Or whether it's the misconceptions that hold many organizations back influencing your decisions? Test your knowledge, and then access our white paper to learn even more about cloud adoption. Q 1. I can’t be sure that the Cloud is secure enough for Regulatory Compliance. Ans. There are a number of ways to ensure compliance-level security. One is to deploy a private cloud that gives more options for corporate, industry, and federal standards. Another is to use a provider that offers custom solutions for meeting requirements like HIPAA for healthcare and PCI in the credit card industry. Q.2. Disaster Recovery resources are Standard Public Cloud Offerings. Ans. Not all public cloud services are alike. Some lack robust disaster recovery and fail-over plans. Some areas of public cloud are set to shut down in favor of higher-value customers in event of disaster. It’s important to investigate a provider’s system and learn whether you’re in a position to count on disaster recovery resources. Q.3. Can I move large amounts of data in the Cloud? Ans. The right architecture is essential. Direct links to providers via Direct Connect and optical fiber interconnections such as data centers allow for the movement of substantial payloads across Gigabit or 10 Gigabit links. Q.4. I lose control of my data in the cloud. Ans. Control your data by choosing a provider that will let you keep it on-premise and access it via high-speed connections. This will also make it easier to move all or some of the data into the cloud later. Q.5. Bandwidth for my applications will decrease if I move them from Ethernet connections to the cloud. Ans. Some services reduce the apparent distance between machines by making the network imitate an Ethernet connection. The server doesn’t recognize that it has been moved and behaves as if it is on a WAN. Enterprises can then move servers to their most efficient locations without disrupting application performance. Q.6. I may need to re-write my applications to make them ready for the Public Cloud? Ans. A public cloud provider like Amazon Web Services assumes that the apps it hosts are written to run on the cloud, not hardwired to a particular server. Q.7. My ERP management system might be too big for the cloud? Ans. An ERP system that needs to be on a large server will require infrastructure designed for higher performance and with a stronger service-level agreement than most public cloud operators provide.
