Top Cloud Computing Data Security Products

Cloud computing enables the reduction of IT infrastructure costs while keeping in mind complex security needs

In an environment where the IT organizations, on the one hand, face resource constraints and on the other hand, have to meet growing business needs, they have to look newer and cost effective methods of computing and cloud computing aims to achieve these aims by balancing the conflicts between scarce resources and increased service needs. In simple terms, cloud computing enables reduction of IT infrastructure costs while at the same keeping in mind complex security needs of the users. This article discusses a few best-rated data security products. In order to be best, they should be hybrid products that combine private clouds with public clouds.

1. VMware Cloud Director
VMware cloud Director
enables the delivering of IT as a Service (ITaaS). This means the IT department of your company can create a virtualized platform on which a private cloud could be built and deployed. VMware vSphere strongly vies for a place in your IT Department as it provides the industry's complete and dynamic visualization platform by keeping the capital and operating costs at an affordable level. It simultaneously increases your IT department's efficiency by affording it the application of choices in Operating System and hardware.

The expenses are reduced through virtualization of storage and networking resources. Revenue losses are minimized by controlling the downtime, outages and failures. The company promises a consolidation ratio of a minimum of 15:1 while simultaneously assuring an increase in the efficiency through methods of management automation and dynamic allocation of resources to enterprise applications across private and public cloud infrastructures. As a result it is possible to ensure the availability, security and scalability of enterprise applications.

2. Network Accessory for Cloud Computing: Voltaire's High Density Switch for Cloud Computing
high-performance switch is designed to boost data center's efficiency by saving space in cloud computing applications. Its Vantage 6048 top-of-rack switch has 48 independent ports with each offering ten gigabit Ethernet connectivity. This enables the manufacturer to offer more CEE-compliant features when compared with any competitor. Virtual machine connectivity and mobility are enabled through Voltaire's UFM software.

The critical advantage of using this application for businesses that rely on cloud architectures is that they can attain standard-compliant modular infrastructure, which is capable of scaling linearly from a single server rack to hundreds of racks with the same hardware and software building blocks, which means reduced investments on capital and operating costs while at the same time not compromising on security.

3. Dynamic Virtual Desktop Platform
through its Dynamic Virtual Desktop (DVD) product has made it possible to deliver Desktop as a Service (DaaS) over the Cloud platform. This application has brought in a scalable offering to the enterprises, and service provides to enable them to create, secure, deliver and streamline the life cycle of virtual workspaces without escalating the costs.

With this product, the enterprises can deliver client hosted desktop virtualization. Enterprises going in for this platform can simplify complex desktop management tasks by leveraging the cloud computing  and  deliver PC content on demand to end users by easy usage of  upcoming technologies as Google TV that enables the streaming of Microsoft Office to billions with which they can realize substantial power cost savings.

4. Trend Micro's Deep Security 7.5
Trend Micro's Deep Security 7.5
is an antimalware protection which is capable of being used in the VMware server security software. Deep Security 7.5 enables integrity monitoring, log inspection and firewall capabilities. The application provides core protection to virtual machines through Deep Security 7.5 antimalware software. The virtualization is brining changes that have brought opportunities for security vendors wherein they can survive only by optimizing security. Trend Micro's Deep Security demands strong attention in a scenario where virtualization security in cloud computing is still in its infancy. According to research estimates made by Gartner until the end of 2009 about 18% of server workloads are virtualized which is projected to increase to 28% in 2010 and to 50% by 2012. The Deep Security 7.5 would be filling the many needed gaps in this environment. Trend Micro is also expected to bring in encryption to the cloud through its Secure Cloud product, which is expected to hit the market by the end of this year.

5. HP's Cloudstart Storage Solution
HP's cloudstorage
package would allow the enterprises to implement private cloud computing applications in a faster manner. The package is offered by the Cloud Consulting Services (CCS) of the company and consists of hardware and software products backed with consulting services. HP's customers can build private clouds within a period of 30 days from its deployment. Once done, it provides a platform for comprehensive and many needed hybrid environments.

The package consists of BladeSystem Matrix Server hardware, StorageWorks data storage platform that would work through the Cloud Services Automation Software. During the initial stages, it would be available in the Asia-Pacific regions and Japan which would be followed by a release to the rest of the world by the end of 2010.
