On August 28th at VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas, VMware announced initial availability for their unique offering called ‘VMware Cloud on AWS’ allowing customers to run VMware workloads on the AWS cloud. This means customers can take advantage of agile cloud infrastructure all the while maintaining their familiar VMware tools, skill sets and architecture framework investments.
This is a huge step between the virtual and cloud behemoths and some might say a long awaited collaboation. Organizations are taking advantage of changes in computing technology to position themselves for a more agile future. Technology leaders and architects see value beyond the data center with new public cloud models and are keen on adopting hybrid infrastructure approaches to their compute environments.
This gives DevOps the upstream ability to implement and deliver applications quickly and efficiently within business units hungry to improve outcomes and help meet business goals, but with this shift comes new threats and attack methods that are often secondary considerations to changing infrastructure needs. This neglect in security leaves gaps that open the door to threats and serious data breaches, not to mention compliance with data privacy and industry regulations that require the need to demonstrate appropriate infrastructure security measures, regardless of the computing environment.
