Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud is here to stay. So what is a hybrid cloud? A hybrid cloud refers to a mixed computing, storage, and services environment made up of on-premises infrastructure, private cloud services, and a public cloud—such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud Platform (GCP)—with orchestration among the various platforms. Using a combination of public clouds, on-premises computing, and private clouds in your datacenter means that you have a hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Many organisation have started to realised that going full public cloud might not be the most cost effective route especially if you have a steady workload that requires minimal elasticity or burst capabilities.

What has changed to make hybrid or private cloud more attractive? Well, in recent years, some of the Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) players like Nutanix have introduced capabilities that have long been exclusive to the public cloud like Security Groups and native Kubernetes deployment (without the need to set up a host operating system).

And with more and more standards being developed, I think many organisations can now start to be more fluid in the movement of their workloads and this in turn drove the adoption of more private cloud/hybrid cloud approach.

I will be speaking on this topic at the next Nutanix Economic Advantage Summit at Marina Bay Sands on 20 April 2021. See you there!

Cloud security in the age of Hybrid Cloud

On 31 March I was invited to be on a panel hosted by the Cloud Security Alliance to talk about Cloud security in the age of the hybrid clod. I spoke on some of the key changes to the environment and things to look out for from a technology angle. My fellow panelist also spoke on their experiences and it was a good session to see the different perspective.

From EDR to MDR

Was recently featured in Enterprise Security Magazine on the topic of moving from EDR to MDR. As we are hit with the ever increasing volume of incidents and the shortage of trained professionals to handle them, we need to leverage partnerships to deal with these issues. One of the ways I am addressing this, is to make use of Managed Detection & Response services with a vendor to help react faster and gives us time to mitigate the issues.
