AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 28, 2013) - The Virtualization Practice, an industry analyst firm that provides unique analysis, commentary and resources on Virtualization and Cloud Computing, has released a new white paper titled "Secure Hybrid Cloud Reference Architecture," written by Analyst Edward L. Haletky.
While it is quite easy to implement various virtualization security offerings within a virtual environment, once one expands to the entire data center, a complete architecture is required. The entire data center includes virtual, physical and hybrid Cloud instances, all of which need to be secured. Security should extend into each aspect of a hybrid Cloud and not just be a part of the physical or virtual footprints.
"When we talk about hybrid Clouds, security becomes all about the data and not necessarily about the virtualization layers in which the data may reside," said Edward L. Haletky, The Virtualization Practice CEO and Analyst. "Building upon existing thoughts on hybrid Cloud security, this white paper provides a reference architecture into which Virtualization and Cloud security products can be implemented and managed in a secure fashion."
