Each data centre features on-site security, video surveillance, biometric screening, nightly backups, off-site transfer of all data, battery backups, a fully automatic fail-over standby generator, seismically-braced server racks, state-of-the-art fire suppression systems and around-the-clock monitoring of server operation, 128-bit encrypted data protection and multiple firewalls.
According to Ovum, Cloud computing will continue to grow rapidly in 2013. Cloud computing promises to tackles two hitherto irreconcilable IT challenges: the need to reduce costs and the need to boost innovation. Cloud computing in all its guises (public, private, and hybrid) is building momentum, evolving fast and becoming increasingly enterprise-grade.
Ovum predicted that 2013 will also see the emergence of cloud computing ecosystem. Public clouds are increasingly approached not only as technology delivery platforms but also as “ecosystem hubs” for cloud service providers and consumers.
Australia is poised to become one of the first countries in the world to introduce a certification process for cloud computing vendors. The plan could come to fruition in 2014.
