How to easily keep your cloud files private with Rclone. When cloud storage services first came on the scene, personal data security wasn’t a common feature. Even now, as concern over data privacy has grown, many cloud storage services don’t encrypt the user’s data by default. It’s largely up to the user to take the initiative and enable settings that ensure files are encrypted and private, which can be tedious. Believe it or not, a little command-line program called Rclone simplifies things. It’s available for Linux and other open-source OSes, as well as Windows and OS X.

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.

Cloud's worst-case scenario: What to do if your provider goes belly up. Last September customers of storage provider Nirvanix got what could be worst-case scenario news for a cloud user: The company was going out of business and they had to get data out, fast.

Cloud's worst-case scenario: What to do if your provider goes belly up

Customers scrambled to transfer data from Nirvanix’s facilities to other cloud providers or back on to their own premises. “Some folks made it, others didn’t,” says Kent Christensen, a consultant at Datalink, which helped a handful of clients move data out of the now-defunct cloud provider. Nirvanix wasn’t the first, and it likely will not be the last cloud provider to go belly up.

Megacloud, a provider of free and paid online storage without warning or explanation suddenly went dark two months after Nirvanix’s bombshell dropped.

Who Uses These Cloud and Virtualization Systems?

Openstack, AWS, HyperV, VMware

OpenStack, AWS, Hyper-V and VMware are different services offering cloud computing or virtualization services. Let's take a closer look to see the advantages of each, as well as look at some companies using them. OpenStack OpenStack provides Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). It is a fast growing cloud computing project used by small and large companies alike. OpenStack is a cloud operating system consisting of several projects. Amazon Web Services (AWS) Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a suite of services for cloud computing.

AWS cannot be hosted in-house. Hyper-V Previously known as Windows Server Virtualization, Hyper-V is a hypervisor-based platform that provides virtualization. Companies using Hyper-V include Siva Group, Avanade and the MLS Property Information Network. VMware. What is Docker? Q: What is Docker?

What is Docker?

A: Docker is an open-source solution that enables isolation and mobility for Linux applications; however, it's also coming to Windows. Docker's primary purpose is to simplify the deployment of applications that over time have become more and more complex. For those familiar with App-V, the concept of isolating applications from each other through the use of virtual layers will be familiar; this is similar to how Docker works. The following figure illustrates the difference between traditional virtualization and how Docker containers function. Note that in traditional virtualization, each application runs in its own private virtual machine with its own OS instances, as well as its own libraries and binaries. It's possible to actually view the change history between the various checkpoints, as well as the differences between them. NIST lays out roadmap for cloud computing.
