Transition to a hybrid cloud platform from a private cloud

Submitted by on January 11, 2018 – 10:16 pmNo Comment

Security typically involves comprehensive encryption of data, as well as the use of virtual private networks. The idea is that all data should be encrypted in the local private cloud, and kept encrypted as it moves across the internet to public cloud resources and services. No service or employee with the public cloud provider should possess encryption keys or otherwise be able to decrypt data moved to the public cloud.

Hybrid Cloud

Ultimately, the goal of security in a hybrid cloud platform is to ensure that data can move back and forth to the public cloud with no means of exposing the private cloud to a breach. Any data at rest should be similarly protected. The software platforms used in private and public clouds must be compatible. Compatibility issues often start with the underlying hypervisor, so it’s important to employ compatible hypervisors. For example, if a private cloud employs a hypervisor such as KVM or VMware vSphere, and the intended public cloud uses a hypervisor such as Xen, a conversion tool will be needed to enable private cloud workloads to run on the public cloud — and vice versa.
