ESTABLISHING TRUST IN CLOUD COMPUTING

Shweta Agrawal

 

 

ABSTRACT

Cloud computing delivers IT capabilities as services-on-demand. This scalable and plastic model provides advantages like faster time-to-market, no capex and pay-per-use business model. While there are several such benefits, there are challenges in adopting public clouds because of dependency on infrastructure that is not completely controlled internally and rather shared with outsiders. Several enterprises, especially large ones that have already invested in their own infrastructure over the years are looking at setting up private clouds within their organizational boundaries to reap the benefits of cloud computing technologies leveraging such investments. This paper describes the different options available, highlighting the key advantages and challenges posed by each and the approach enterprises should be taking in adopting cloud computing with minimal risk. In this article, we discuss the need for asking critical questions about the security implications of cloud computing. Answers to our questions are not readily apparent, even though viewing computing as a utility, similar to that of providing water
or electricity on a for-fee basis, dates back to at least the 1960s.
