Secure cloud environments – cloud computing and resiliency
SunGard Availability Services, a provider of disaster recovery services and business continuity management software, has launched a blog series aiming at industry conversations on how to improve business and IT availability.
The company said the blog series is designed to keep executives updated on best practices regarding information technology for organisational efficiency.
The blog discusses the business and technology issues involved in implementing and managing cloud computing solutions, such as examining the best cloud computing approaches and secure cloud computing environments.
SunGard Availability Services director of solutions design Carl Meadows said organisations want to get out of the business of owning and maintaining IT hardware, and cloud computing is emerging as a natural evolution of managed services to address this goal.
"We look forward to contributing to industry dialogue by providing a cloud computing overview on how the cloud is helping save businesses time and money, while increasing operational efficiency," Meadows said.
SunGard Availability Services senior director of marketing Jim Grogan said they plan to spark discussions among the business and IT communities about optimised resilience in any type of business disruption situation.
