Solution Brief: HP CloudSystem* with Intel® Security Technologies
Cloud computing: an emerging market with tremendous potential
Cloud computing allows service providers to deliver global, highly scalable, and flexible services over the Internet on an as-needed, pay per-use basis. Such services help customers to:
• Drive down costs by only paying for the resources they actually use
• Gain flexibility by benefiting from the latest technologies with no infrastructure costs
• Reduce time to market by minimizing the prototyping and testing needed for new services
• Perform at the optimum level by dynamically adjusting service capacity to match demand
Although still in its infancy, cloud computing is growing rapidly. In-Stat forecasts that cloud computing and managed services spending by US businesses will surpass USD 13 billion in 2014, up from less than USD 3 billion in 2010.
Cloud computing is an important and growing platform for Instant-On Enterprises, where everything and everyone is connected. Instant-On Enterprises need IT environments that are automated, secure, and easy to adapt to changes in demand.
Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) migrating to the cloud are concerned about the confidentiality of their information and their liability for infrastructure-related incidents.
These concerns are driving cloud providers to improve security practices by providing security audits and better protecting data—both within the cloud data center and between customer sites and the cloud.
