Ever thought that the cloud is not secure enough for your organization to even consider adopting it? You may want to give that thought another swirl. And the reason for that is the new Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
Albeit in limited beta, the offering aims to provide the best of the both worlds by securely bridging your existing IT infrastructure and the AWS cloud-based resources in hybrid architectures.
In essence, Virtual Private Cloud works just as a regular AWS public cloud, but with isolation and additional encryption.
Is this the ultimate solution for security concerns? Hardly.
Can it support regulatory compliance requirements in the cloud? The short answer is “no.” But, hey, it’s not a bad start.
