Amato, Alba; Aversa, Rocco; Ficco, Massimo; Venticinque, Salvatore
Abstract:
Although virtualisation, elasticity and resource sharing enable new levels of flexibility, convenience and economy benefits, they also add new challenges and more areas for potential failures and security vulnerabilities, which represent the major concerns for companies and public organisations that want to shift their business and mission critical applications and sensitive data to the cloud. This paper discusses some technical issues, which must be addressed to migrate mission-critical applications to public clouds. Moreover, by using a case study, an approach to broker cloud infrastructure needs to satisfy more restrictive critical requirements is presented.
