Stoneware, Inc. Announces SAML Provisioning for Cloud Computing

SAML Provisioning is just another step in strengthening the union between the private cloud and public cloud providers

Cloud Computing Expo

Indianapolis, IN - October 20, 2009 - Stoneware, Inc. announced today the upcoming release of SAML Provisioning for webNetwork. Integrated SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) provisioning will enable Stoneware's private cloud solution to push a user's identity to public cloud application providers.

SAML Provisioning is just another step in strengthening the union between the private cloud and public cloud providers. Provisioning identity information from the private cloud to the public provider simplifies management and strengthens integration resulting in cost savings for both the customer and public cloud provider.

"Stoneware continues to lead the industry in uniting the public and private clouds" states Ken Quinton, VP of Strategic Relations - Stoneware, Inc. "Our goal is simple. Let the customer build a private cloud that enables them to determine where the applications will reside while providing the user with a single Virtual Web Desktop interface".

Stoneware will release SAML Provisioning in the next service pack update for webNetwork due in early November, 2009. To learn more go to www.stone-ware.com.

Transformation Abstract Encryption and privacy in the cloud is a daunting yet essential task for both security practitioners and application developers, especially as applications continue moving to the cloud at an exponential rate. What are some best practices and processes for enterprises to follow that balance both security and ease of use requirements? What technologies are available to empower enterprises with code, data and key protection from cloud providers, system administrators, insiders, government compulsion, and network hackers? Join Ambuj Kumar (CEO, Fortanix) to discuss best practices and technologies for enterprises to securely transition to a multi-cloud hybrid world.
"Calligo is a cloud service provider with data privacy at the heart of what we do. We are a typical Infrastructure as a Service cloud provider but it's been designed around data privacy," explained Julian Box, CEO and co-founder of Calligo, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
