Security White Papers

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

Doing Big Data and NoSQL in the public cloud sounds great, but at some point, someone has to write a check to make it happen. Is there a strong financial argument for making this move? Can you start small and grow larger easily? This paper answers this question with a detailed Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis for open source data management in the public cloud. Contrasting cloud deployments on the standard vs hyperscale CenturyLink Cloud stack Powered by Intel Cloud Technology, versus the on-premise analogue, the paper models the relative financial merits of each approach. The paper considers the best potential use cases for on-premise versus cloud and walks through an example use case to show the impact to business outcomes (time to results, cost, TCO). Cost factors compared include:
