Can you trust “the cloud” to be there for communications? What about latency issues? availability? What should you be most concerned about?
Those are issues that I (Dan York) will be discussing on a panel on Friday, Feb 4, 2011, at the Cloud Communications Summit in South Beach, Miami. The abstract is:
There’s a general consensus that Cloud Communications improves the bottom line while reducing both financial and technology risks. What about from a security perspective? This session identifies the differences between premise based and cloud based offerings from a security perspective, and provides the audience with a checklist of what to worry about as they move into the cloud. This session is appropriate for both business and technologists.
I’ll be on the panel along with folks from Rackspace, Pac-West and Path Solutions and the whole session will be moderated by analyst Dave Michels. It should be a fun discussion… if you are down in Miami, do come and join us!
