Multi-tenancy in the cloud: Why it matters. Whether an IT organization is going with public or private clouds, it's important to understand the nuances of multi-tenant architecture.

Multi-tenancy in the cloud: Why it matters

For public clouds, IT managers need to understand the degree of multi-tenancy supported by whichever vendor they are looking at. For private clouds, the entire responsibility of designing a multi-tenant architecture rests with the IT managers. Enterprise cloud adoption has gone beyond the levels of intellectual pursuits and casual experimentation. An analysis by IDC shows that $17 billion of the $359 billion of worldwide IT spending for 2009 could be attributed to cloud computing. Two-thirds of Baseline magazine's survey participants plan to expand their use of public clouds. None of that is to say that there aren't nagging issues, including but not limited to how different enterprise workloads match up against different types of clouds and responsible ways to plan and implement the necessary migrations.

Public interest in the “Deep Web” and the “Dark Web” has increased exponentially, from 8 to 100 and 25 to 100, respectively, on Google Trends from 2011 to now.

Cybercrime in the DeepWeb. Earlier, we published a blog post talking about the recent shut down of the Silk Road marketplace.

There, we promised to release a new white paper looking at cybercrime activity on the Deep Web in more detail. This paper can now be found on our site here. While the Deep Web has often been uniquely associated with The Onion Router (TOR), in this paper we introduce several other networks that guarantee anonymous and untraceable access — the most renowned darknets (i.e., TOR, I2P, and Freenet) and alternative top-level domains (TLDs), also called “rogue TLDs.” We analyzed how malicious actors use these networks to exchange goods and examined the marketplaces available in the Deep Web, along with the goods offered.

Measured service. Cloud systems automatically control and optimize resource use by taking advantage of a metering capability at some level of abstraction appropriate to the type of service ﴾for example, storage, processing, bandwidth, and active user accounts﴿. It should be noted that in the case of public clouds, broad network access to the cloud is crucial. Through standard mechanisms that promote use by heterogeneous thin or thick client platforms ﴾for example, mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and workstations﴿.

6 key questions to ask when designing cloud architecture. High Performance Cloud Computing Networks - [Infographic] Explosive Internet growth, beginning in the mid-late 1990’s, has had a dramatic affect on the evolution of computer networking.

High Performance Cloud Computing Networks - [Infographic]

Some new network technologies and initiatives boomed, but faded rapidly into oblivion. Others, notably Ethernet, invented by Bob Metcalfe at Xerox PARC, became the standard and a commodity. Designing Your Cloud Infrastructure. Many network architectures include a tiered design with three or more tiers such as core, distribution, and access.

Designing Your Cloud Infrastructure

Designs are driven by the port bandwidth and quantity required at the edge, in addition to the ability of the distribution and core tiers to provide higher speed uplinks to aggregate traffic. Additional considerations include Ethernet broadcast boundaries and limitations, spanning tree or other loop-avoidance technologies. A dedicated management network is a frequent feature of advanced data center virtualization solutions. Most virtualization vendors recommend that hosts be managed via a dedicated network so that there is no competition with tenant traffic and to provide a degree of separation for security and ease of management purposes. This historically implied dedicating a network adapter per host and port per network device to the management network. Managing the network environment in a private cloud can present challenges that must be addressed. The Internet map. IBM's open cloud architecture.

Cloud Architecture: Get It Right The First Time. Cloud expert David Linthicum, speaker at Interop 2013 New York, shares advice on why an IT manager should play cloud architecture detective.

Cloud Architecture: Get It Right The First Time

Whether you're building an enterprise private cloud or buying a public cloud service, the underlying architecture of what you end up with will have an impact on what you can do. "People have a tendency not to think about architecture," noted David Linthicum, senior VP at Cloud Technology Partners in Cambridge, Mass. and a speaker in the Cloud and Virtualization track at Interop New York 2013. And cloud vendors, including Amazon Web Services and Google Compute Engine, tend not to disclose much about their underlying architectures.

Clouds may have some elements in common, but the specific goals behind the selection of their parts and their method of assembly actually differ greatly. "The architectural differences can show up in a big way," Linthicum warned. Cloud Design Patterns: Prescriptive Architecture Guidance for Cloud Applications. January 2014 Containing twenty-four design patterns and ten related guidance topics, this guide articulates the benefit of applying patterns by showing how each piece can fit into the big picture of cloud application architectures.

It also discusses the benefits and considerations for each pattern. Most of the patterns have code samples or snippets that show how to implement the patterns using the features of Microsoft Azure. However the majority of topics described in this guide are equally relevant to all kinds of distributed systems, whether hosted on Azure or on other cloud platforms. The following design patterns are useful in cloud-hosted applications. Associated with the individual pattern to download only that sample.
