The Best Approach to Securing Your Data in a Hybrid Cloud (https://goo.gl/kLyT5Z)

We've talked a lot about the #hybridcloud model of cloud computing here before, particularly the benefits it can provide both the small business and the enterprise. Chief among those benefits is flexibility - you can pick and choose which data you want on your private, internally-hosted cloud and what you're comfortable putting on the outward-facing public cloud.

But no matter if you go with a hybrid cloud model or one that's fully private or public, securing your data is always a concern. What's the best way to do that using a hybrid cloud model? We examine that very topic in this blog entry, and much like the world of real estate, it all boils down to location, location, location:

"Rather than letting the nature of apps determine their location, look to the data to determine location, says Floyer. What this means is different for different scenarios. Software as a Service (SaaS) makes sense in some situations, as does a cloud hosted architecture through a provider such as Superb Internet. Floyer also emphasizes that some organizations can benefit from moving mission-critical applications and data to a colocation center, with hyperscale capabilities and immediate access to data streaming through the public Internet."

"A major strength of this approach that will not be immediately evident to all readers is the effect on enterprise employees: by carefully constructing a hybrid cloud so that automation is functioning at its highest capacity, you allow those in your IT department to liberate themselves from mundane repetition and turn toward innovation: creating an app that performs all their work for them, so that they can watch reruns of MASH all day, because they love Alan Alda."

"[…] In this article, I'll explain how to set up tooling to simplify administering multiple machines. […] What is Ansible? […] The Ansible website explains the project as "a radically simple IT automation engine that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs." […] If you are familiar with Bash for-loops, you'll find that Ansible operates in a similar fashion. The difference, however, is that Ansible is idempotent. In layman's terms this means that generally Ansible only performs the requested action if a change will occur as a result. For example, […]

"[…] Boltron is a bit of an anomaly in the Fedora world — somewhere between a Spin and a preview for the future of Fedora Server Edition. […] In other words, the user may want httpd-2.4 and httpd-2.6 installed and running at once. […] Watch for another announcement about using System Containers with Boltron in a few weeks. […] Instead, they kept the warts and wrinkles with the toolset, and implemented tools and procedures that slightly adjusted the existing systems to provide something new. Largely, the resultant package set can be thought of as virtualized, separate repositories. […] “Blah blah, where are my bits,” you ask? […]"
