Why Open Hybrid Cloud Is the Right Choice

Cloud computing has become the latest technological innovation for users wanting the economical regulation of resources

openhybridcloudCloud computing has become the latest technological innovation for users wanting the economical regulation of resources. Cloud basically makes use of a broad infrastructure which shares its resources and services. However, it is equally important for users to know the right kind of cloud to use. Not all offer the same facilities and users must learn to recognize the facets which point to the right cloud. This is where users must be aware of Open Hybrid Cloud (Red Hat).

The Emerging Technology
The Open Hybrid Cloud (Red Hat) is taking the world by storm with its innovative technology and is the way cloud will work in the future. The main idea behind Red Hat is the way it standardizes software and frees resources in the process. The hybrid makes the cloud more fluid to use with an interoperable infrastructure that is totally within your control.

The Benefits of the New Hybrid Open Cloud Technology
The open cloud has proven to be better than closed cloud as certified by users.  The benefits are many, as seen below-

-    Flexibility – users get to choose the type of technology that they want to use which is best suited for the type of work that they do. The closed cloud, on the other hand, usually will allow only the vendor to select the tool and model.

-    Efficiency- the open cloud brings with it an increase in efficiency by bringing the resources of the cloud to your entire system. The closed cloud has limited access by creating additional silos, which in turn, makes it more complex to use.

-    Choice of control – Open cloud allows the user more control and the user also gets to decide what platform to work on. The closed cloud has limited platforms to offer which may not be suitable for your enterprise.

-    Portability – there is a large amount of resources such as languages, applications, and tools with futuristic values. The closed cloud will limit your choices and restrict your access.

The Open Hybrid Cloud (Red Hat) is what you need for your business today to ensure the success and security in the years to come.

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.
