Est-ce que l'infonuagique publique est sécuritaire? La vérité selon les clients d'infonuagique publique

Alors que l'engouement autour de la technologie infonuagique augmente, l'une des principales préoccupations soulevées est la sécurité. Les craintes concernant la sécurité, alimentées par l'inconnu, ont entaché toutes les solutions infonuagiques : publiques, privées et hybrides. Bien qu'il reste encore beaucoup d'engouement pour l'infonuagique, de nombreuses entreprises ont progressé au-delà des projets de type bac à sable et mettent sur pieds un modèle d'exploitation infonuagique pour les applications importantes qui affectent directement leurs opérations et leurs profits. L'adoption de l'infonuagique est à un point où les entreprises utilisent les services infonuagiques publics pour leurs applications principales et leurs données clients. Ce rapport de recherche de 5 pages, élaboré par une firme de recherche indépendante, Dimensional Research, partage les expériences de vrais clients et dresse le portrait de l'approche de l'infonuagique CenturyLink en matière de sécurité.

Dimensional Research a interrogé deux entreprises qui ont déployé des solutions infonuagiques publiques de niveau affaires et a obtenu une rétroaction exhaustive sur l'efficacité de la sécurité et sur la valeur de réalisation réelle de la migration vers l'infonuagique. Les entreprises figurant dans ce rapport sont des clients de l'infonuagique CenturyLink (anciennement Tier 3).


How CenturyLink is Using its Own Cloud Platform to Showcase Capabilities

Ovum's analysis concludes that CenturyLink's decision to reference itself shows how cloud providers can demonstrate the viability of their offerings by actually being their own "customer." This maturity model helps communicate CenturyLink's vision for a continued journey to the cloud to both internal stakeholders and customers. This approach has broken down barriers between operations and development, enabling every IT stakeholder to be engaged in real-time dialogue and meet targets of increased operational agility.

Ovum is an independent, UK-based firm that advises on the commercial impact of technology and market changes in telecoms, software and IT services. Ovum's case study of CenturyLink observes that the organization's migration to its own public cloud meets two primary objectives. First, it's part of a larger strategic IT initiative focused on business agility. Second, CenturyLink wants to act as a reference customer for its own CenturyLink Cloud.
