Intel Architect to Discuss Secure Cloud Computing at Cloud Expo in New York

Principal Architect Charlton Barreto Covers How Virtualization is Making Things Happen

Intel Session at Cloud Expo

"Cloud computing allows companies to perform feats of computation that would otherwise have been impossible, or at least prohibitively expensive," writes Charlton Barreto, a Principal Architect at Intel, in outlining a session he will present at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York on Monday, April 19 from 4:40pm-5:25pm.

"However, cloud computing has generally lacked the security features typically required by small and medium-sized enterprises. Likewise, in using public clouds, IT cedes control over key security parameters to the service provider."

he expands on this point by noting, "previously, computer network concepts could not easily be realized within the cloud, because the network itself was not virtualized - just the processing and storage - yet recent developments goe some way toward allowing the virtualization of this infrastructure. These technology advances, such as Trusted Boot Chains to enable or disable access to secure networks, Secure Enclaves to isolate process and data access, and IPsec to establish secure connections with data centers, all enable cloud-based resources to enjoy a greater level of security, to the point where integrating them with a local network of servers become feasible."

This session will cover how these models, architectures and technologies enable the integration of remote, virtual resources with both physical and virtual machines in the data center, giving customers the option use public and private clouds securely and scalably. This is part of a larger trend in cloud computing: creating secure connections between real and virtual machines.
