Canadian Cloud Computing Solution for European Commission Cloud Log Jam

Cloud Ventures pioneers Canadian Cloud Computing industry development

The New York Times recently reported that cloud computing is not being adopted as quickly in Europe as in other parts of the world because of European Commission privacy laws that place rigid limits on the movement of information beyond the borders of the 27-country European Union. Industry lobbyists are working to loosen and streamline existing laws on international data transfer to permit the eventual creation of a comprehensive, workable, global privacy framework that is consistent, flexible, transparent and principles-based. Cloud Ventures, a Canadian consultancy incubating Canadian Cloud technology, is forwarding a technology company Esotera that has a technology which solves the data privacy concerns of European countries in a single sweep.

Tom Chalker, president of Esotera Secure Storage Solutions, explains: "We have created a distributed architecture of anonymous encrypted data blocks that changes the game. The issue of physical security within jurisdictional boundaries is replaced with the simpler concept of security by statistical probability. Legally, this is similar to regulations in the medical field. Laws exist because statistics prove that diseases can be more effectively controlled through widespread immunization rather than by simply isolating the carriers of disease."

Cloud Ventures is endorsing this solution as part of their 'Trusted Cloud' R&D initiative.

The Esotera solution uses the mathematics of cryptology to store blocks of data alongside millions of other indistinguishable blocks to present a modern 'needle in the haystack' problem for potential attackers. The data is protected by very large numbers. The attacker must make billions of billions of guesses to compromise any one file.

Cloud Ventures, director Neil McEvoy, comments on the promise of the technology: Trusted Clouds represent the combination of privacy, audit best practices and Cloud security technologies that will be required for widespread adoption of Cloud Computing, with governments playing a key role in establishing as well as using them. Esotera is a key piece of this jigsaw because so much critical information, like citizen customer data, is stored through 'unstructured' as well as structured content,
indeed due to social media tools like Microsoft Sharepoint it is proliferating wildly in an uncontrolled manner. Organizations need consistent information protection applied equally on their PCs and laptops as well as their Cloud applications, and Trusted Clouds will offer a variety of personal and server storage options perfect for this requirement. By moving quickly to fast-track ventures like Esotera and pioneer the integration of privacy laws, Cloud technologies and government outsourcing initiatives, Canada can fire up an entrepreneurial 'rapid response' team to establish the country as a leader in this emergent foundation to the new Digital Economy.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
"When you think about the data center today, there's constant evolution, The evolution of the data center and the needs of the consumer of technology change, and they change constantly," stated Matt Kalmenson, VP of Sales, Service and Cloud Providers at Veeam Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Today, we have more data to manage than ever. We also have better algorithms that help us access our data faster. Cloud is the driving force behind many of the data warehouse advancements we have enjoyed in recent years. But what are the best practices for storing data in the cloud for machine learning and data science applications?
