If you compare it to an enterprise server in a private data center, it’s clearly less secure (unless you applied cloud specific security and encryption tools perhaps). But if you compare it to existing hosting offering, it’s no less secure than enterprise grade hosting has been for a decade.Read More
In our hectic cloud-based world, devops (the mixing of infrastructure operations with software development) has become the standard way we build and run high-scale sites from IaaS to SaaS.
