The Portfolio Approach: Addressing the Complexities of a Multi Cloud Environment

Photo: Humphereys2014 has been touted by analysts and technologists as the year of the hybrid cloud, but in fact, it will more likely be the year of the multi-cloud environment. The truth is that the cloud is not a one-size-fits-all solution and with service providers coming to this realization, they are beginning to create cloud solutions whose environments are focused on the specific requirements of those services – specialized cloud services like desktop as a service, disaster recovery as a service, security as a service, etc. As a result of the increase of specialized services, the environment that end user organizations end up managing will include their own private cloud as well as various specialized cloud services from a number of providers. This multi-cloud environment is more than just a hybrid environment, and can present additional complexities.

Company Bio:

Founded in March 2000 by the CTO of Goldman Sachs, Egenera provides a comprehensive cloud management platform that is being used by both enterprise IT and service providers alike to transform static infrastructure into flexible cloud services and provide instant access to the computing resources users and customers require. The solution enables users to quickly create scalable, secure and highly reliable private, public and cloud services. Egenera Cloud Suite was designed to support business and mission-critical applications as well as test, development and less-demanding environments. Unlike other cloud solutions, with Egenera there is no unnecessary vendor lock-in - users can choose the storage, servers, applications, hypervisors, and operating systems that work best for their end user requirements. With its ability to dynamically provision physical as well as virtual servers, Egenera Cloud Suite lets organizations run databases and applications that are not well suited to running in virtual machines. Many of these applications also require the highest levels of availability and disaster recovery— which Egenera Cloud Suite delivers through its unique N+1 HA and DR features. Companies around the globe use Egenera to manage and protect their mission-critical business services, including some of the world’s leading cloud service providers, financial services firms, healthcare organizations and government agencies.

A note from the VirtG Leadership:

We normally take the summer off, but we were offered this rare opportunity to hear from one of the truly great visionaries in our space, who will be in Boston for the first time in years.  This will be a "don't miss" event!

Simon Crosby, Chief Technical Officer
Bromium

The Detection of Malware is Fundamentally Flawed. Learn about Micro-Virtualization and How To Make Endpoints Trustworthy by Design

Powerful forces that will reshape the future of computing are upon us: Applications are moving to the cloud, where they will be accessed by mobile users from personally owned devices, over the untrusted Internet. This raises tremendous challenges: Applications, operating systems and networks will be increasingly exposed to attack, and while we can reasonably expect providers to actively defend their cloud infrastructures, this is by no means true for client devices or for enterprise applications in the cloud. The “cloud-mobile” era calls for a profound change in the trustworthiness of our infrastructure. Our computer systems must defend themselves by design, on untrusted networks, in the hands of gullible users, under attack, and in the presence of software vulnerabilities and failures.  

 

Simon Crosby will discuss a new technology developed by Bromium that offers a leap forward in systems architecture, by addressing a “grand problem” - Trustworthy Computing.  The Committee on Information Systems Trustworthiness’ publication, Trust in Cyberspace, defines a trustworthy computer system as one that

“…does what people expect it to do – and not something else – despite environmental disruption, human user, and operator errors, and attacks by hostile parties …”

Rather than focus on technology that is only relevant to future systems it is critical to address the incumbent leaky enterprise infrastructure - today’s end points and their vulnerable operating systems and applications that are the cause of over 70% of enterprise breaches. 

 

Simon will describe a new architecture for systems security developed by Bromium - called micro-virtualization - that uses the hardware-virtualization features available on modern CPUs, together with a novel hypervisor called a Microvisor, to seamlessly hardware-isolate each 3rd party web site, document or app in a tiny micro-VM that prevents malware from accessing enterprise data and applications, the Intranet or high-value SaaS sites. The user experience is unchanged, but the device is tens of thousands of times more secure – by design.  The endpoint is also self-remediating.  Malware is automatically discarded when the user closes the task. Bromium micro-virtualization enables IT to embrace mobility and empower end users, even if they depend on legacy software – like Java.  Micro-virtualization also permits Live Attack Visualization and Analysis (LAVA) which delivers complete forensic threat intelligence, including signatures for unknown malware, in real-time. 

Speaker Bio:

Simon Crosby is a co-founder and CTO of Bromium Inc., a company leveraging hardware virtualization to transform platform security. Previously, Simon was CTO, Data Center & Cloud at Citrix Systems, which acquired XenSource, where he was co-founder and CTO. Along the way, Simon was a Principal Engineer at Intel, and founder & CTO of CPlane Inc., a software vendor in Software Defined Networking. A long time ago, he was a faculty member at the University of Cambridge, UK.  He is author of 40 research papers and patents, and has been recognized by Infoworld in the Top 25 CTOs and CRN in the Top 25 IT Executives breaking the sound barrier in innovation.
