White Paper: Parallels
For CIOs and CEOs, cloud computing security is still a hot topic for discussion. The debate continues as to whether a public, private or hybrid cloud approach is best. While there are complex factors that can inform a decision between public or private cloud, security is the biggest.
Choosing public vs private cloud services can be challenging, it is important to analyze the differences between applications virtualized in a private cloud and those in a public cloud.
This white paper compares public and private clouds in contrast to the basic elements, features and benefits that both delivers.
How Public and Private Cloud deployment models differs?

Today, the cloud-based security services are expected to be a “new area of growth.” The adoption of cloud solutions is driven by the need to innovate, simplify and cut costs. Avoiding the cost and the complexity of traditional software is one of the reasons why cloud services has become a mainstream delivery method for security solutions. This whitepaper explains how you can use cloud-based security to protect your network and ensure compliance without breaking the bank. Key takeaways from this whitepaper: Why smaller organizations are vulnerable Common approaches to security are too expensive Cloud-based security is more affordable & effective Seizing other benefits of cloud-based security Continuous security and compliance solutions

Today continuous delivery is enabling modern organizations to become leaders in fast-emerging, technology-driven markets To deliver software that accurately reflects constantly changing user needs, more organizations are moving toward continuous delivery. Continuous testing helps ensure that quality is built in from the requirements, while validating each component at the development level before it enters the system. Continuous testing is integrated into an end-to-end continuous delivery ecosystem that’s capable of taking an idea from design to operations at speed, without compromising quality. This whitepaper provides insights on how to iteratively and accurately capture the desired user functionality by continuous testing. In this whitepaper: Barriers to Continuous Testing: A Choice between Speed and Quality Creating production-like test environments The End-to-End Continuous Delivery Ecosystem Continuous testing in the deployed QA environment does not stop with functionality
What is Cloud Computing ?
A type of internet-based computing, Cloud computing refers to delivery of computing services over the internet or "the cloud" instead of using local storage and computing. The different computing services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, applications, and analytics. Cloud computing eliminates the need for hardware acquisition, maintenance, installation of software.
What is Cloud security ?
A sub-domain of cyber-security, cloud security implies security of cloud computing infrastructure, applications, and data by applications of technologies and policies designed for the same.
What is Cloud infrastructure ?
Cloud infrastructure consists of back-end elements primarily comprising of server hardware components, virtual machines, storage and networking facilities, and software that provide access to the cloud for applications and other services. It can also refer to on-demand service delivered through the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model.
