Choosing a cloud implementation and deployment mode

Basic 0.5 hour Self-paced

When creating a secure cloud solution, you need to consider the type of cloud deployment model that makes the most sense for your environment. In this section, we will first look at a table that shows you which cloud deployment model to choose based on your security needs. Then, we will discuss IBM-specific cloud offerings.

You should consider your types of applications, data sensitivity, business process importance, and your targeted user population to select the cloud deployment model that meets your needs.

When Sun Microsystems VP John Gage coined the phrase, The network is the computer, the idea was more wishful thinking than it was profound. At the time, personal computers were just starting to show up in homes around the country, and most users were getting used to the notion that The computer is the computer. In the '80s, the only people talking about networks were the ones selling network-related gear, and the idea of the network was a little nebulous and vaguely understood. Fast-forward a few decades, and Gage's assertion has proven to be prophetic ... and it happens to explain one of SoftLayer's biggest differentiators.
