Cloud Hosting + The Florida Nerds = A Winning Combination

It is the act of moving applications, data, or other business processes from the on-premises environment of a business into the cloud. Many companies believe that cloud migration is difficult and difficult, therefore aren’t keen on the process. The difficulty of cloud migration is dependent on the amount of resources used in every project. With the benefits of cloud computing, the complexity and difficulties are manageable.

Here, we’ll discuss the advantages, the challenges, and the most important steps to take in the Cloud transition for your company. This blog post will help you migrate to the cloud. Let’s explore the cloud migration process in depth!

What are the advantages of Migration to Cloud Hosting?

Why is it that we require cloud services instead of our existing environment? To address the question above, we’ve highlighted some of the advantages that companies can gain by migrating their resources to cloud services:

  • Price: By moving to the cloud, you will be able to cut operational costs while enhancing IT processes. Cloud hosting service providers like the NY/FL Nerds use the “Only pay for the services you utilize” method that allows companies to not have to manage costly data centers when they’re hosting the cloud.
  • Performance: Cloud providers run worldwide, with world-class network facilities, storage services, databases, servers, etc. In the on-premise environment, it is essential to be aware of every aspect of performance. In Cloud computing, there’s a wide range of cloud service providers in relation to the optimization of performance. there is no need to create a performance specification. All you need to do is utilize them.
    scaleability The cloud migration will give your business greater capacity to increase or decrease the size of your server based upon your system’s requirements. For instance, AWS offers an autoscaling option for servers of customers. If you are planning to implement auto-scaling for your server managing, cost, and optimization will be complicated.

Management & Monitoring

  • Monitoring: Cloud service providers offer monitoring, such as AWS CloudWatch, AWS X-Ray and more. Through these services, you can be alerted when a feature or server could be experiencing issues and is suffering from an interruption. The built-in monitoring tools could help you save time in comparison to monitoring of the condition of your systems by yourself.
  • Fully Managed: Recover, backup, and failover The majority of cloud providers assist to ensure business continuity by providing an integrated, one-click backup as well as recovery capabilities. Certain providers also provide the capability to store backups across different geographical regions.

Cloud Hosting Security

  • Security: Cloud-based hosting platform providers are more secure than data centers on-premises when you use security features appropriately. Cloud providers provide a variety of security options, including monitoring, logging and vulnerability management, threat intelligence, and many more. In the realm of security, the shared responsibility model is crucial. Cloud providers are accountable for the “security of the cloud” but the cloud users are accountable for “security within the cloud”. Everyone is responsible for their own part. AWS also has a variety of certifications for compliance with rules and regulations. For instance, AWS has ISO27001, PCI-DSS, AICPA/SOC, and HIPAA. That means that if your company has any specific security requirements or concerns then you can be assured all your information is safe on the cloud. If you insist on storing your data in your own on-premise system All security features are your duty.

5 Common Cloud Hosting Migration Challenges

Cloud migrations are difficult and extremely risky. We’ve identified five main cloud migration issues you need to be thinking about prior to beginning the cloud migration process :

  • The human element: When cloud migration is successful, it’s typically the people who use cloud services that will face the biggest problem. DevOps administrators, engineers, and System administrators who are comfortable with on-premise systems tend to be resistant to changes. One of the biggest problems is finding and teaching individuals the necessary skills to effectively manage migration. At this moment education for teams and cloud technology awareness is essential to be able to adapt to cloud computing.

Planning

  • Insufficient planning: Cloud migration plan is among the most vital features of cloud migration. It is essential for companies to organize, prioritize, and consider all the steps necessary. If there’s no plan, cloud migration can be a painful experience. cost management It is possible to use cost as both a benefit and a problem when it comes to cloud migration. Cloud providers are relatively the latest technology for many companies that are planning to implement them, exceeding budget is among the most common situations. To stop this from happening cloud providers, offer cost management and alerting, and notifications. Any company planning to migrate to the cloud must make use of them.
  • Picking the right cloud service: AWS, Azure, and Google offer many different options and uses. Each cloud service isn’t compatible with our requirements for business. Furthermore, we could choose solutions that add cost and security issues as well as incorrect architecture designs. To avoid this problem, we should seek out cloud-based service companies and allow them to evaluate our current systems.

Privacy

  • Privacy and data security: Every company has sensitive, personal information stored within its systems. The companies want to protect their data from loss and leaks in the same way as they do the migration to the cloud. As we all know, cloud providers follow the model of shared responsibility, in which they assume responsibility to secure the infrastructure and the user is accountable to secure their data and work. While cloud providers might provide security services, it’s our responsibility to set them up in a way that is secure. Additionally, the process of migration is not without security risk. Transferring large amounts of sensitive information and setting up access controls for apps across multiple environments is complicated. Businesses must devise the best access control method to facilitate cloud migration.

Cloud Hosting Migration Process

We’ve put together a set of questions that will help you with the process of moving to cloud. We’re sharing them as a starting point. they can be extended in line with the level of complexity in your system:

1. Assess

  • What is the software architecture within an on-premise setting?
  • What are the monthly, weekly, and daily costs?
  • How do you meet the security rules for your business?
  • What are the most significant advantages of migrating to the cloud?
  • What is the risk of migration?

Plan

  • What are the migration plan steps?
  • Which are the best useful cloud-based services that you can use for your business?
  • Is the cost estimated and the migration timeline?
  • Are you able to be able to simulate the migration? How do you go about it?
  • Are there any difficult aspects of the simulation of migration? What solutions do we have to tackle these issues?

Execute

  • Are you able to migrate your application’s code efficiently?
  • Have you migrated your database without problems?
  • Do you have a CI/CD process for your cloud migration?
  • Are you testing all functions and apps for your brand cloud environment?
  • Are your engineers able to adapt your cloud-based migration? What are the proofs?

Optimize

  • How can you ensure the confidentiality of your data in the cloud?
  • Are you analyzing the costs of cloud storage? What are the steps to take for cost reduction?
  • What are the best ways to be able to monitor, analyze, and record your cloud environment?
  • How do you stay current with the latest versions of the applications?
  • How can you ensure resilience, availability, and efficiency in the cloud?

Cloud hosting services can be used for different purposes within corporate settings, from the storage of data using services like Box as well as accessing productivity tools via Microsoft Office 365, and the deployment of IT infrastructure through Amazon Web Services (AWS). In  these scenarios cloud services enable companies to be more agile in their businesses, and increase their efficiency through more agile technology usually at a lower price. However, using any cloud-based service is not without the risk and challenges of data security cloud. The security of the data that is created by cloud services, transmitted to the cloud, and then downloaded via the cloud, is the obligation of the cloud service’s customer. The security of cloud data requires transparency and control. The steps below we’ve laid out a fundamental list of recommended practices to secure cloud data that can assist enterprises in establishing an encrypted cloud and help address cloud security concerns.

Phase 1: Be aware of cloud usage and the risk

The first step that cloud computing security is centered on understanding the current state of your system and evaluating risk. By using cloud security services which allow cloud monitoring, you will be able to complete the following steps:

  • Step 1 1. Identify sensitive or regulated information. Your largest area of risk is the loss and theft which can result in regulatory penalties or the destruction of intellectual property. Data classification engines can classify your data, allowing you to be able to assess the risk.
  • 2. Learn the ways sensitive data can be access as well as transferred. Sensitive data can be stored securely within the cloud however it is important to know who has access to it and from where it goes. Check the permissions for the folders and files in your cloud-based environment as well as the context of access, such as the user’s role, location, and the type of device.
  • 3. Find Shadow IT (unknown cloud usage). Most people don’t ask their IT team prior to making a decision to sign up for cloud storage accounts or converting PDFs online. Utilize your firewall, proxy server and SIEM logs to determine the cloud services in use that you do not are aware of, and then perform an analysis on their risks.
  • Step 4: Audit configurations for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) such as AWS or Azure, or any other cloud hosting service. Your IaaS environments contain dozens of critical settings, many of which can create an exploitable weakness if misconfigured. Begin by reviewing your settings for access and identity administration, networking configuration and encryption.
  • Phase 5: Discover suspicious user behaviour. Both careless employees as well as third-party attackers could show behavior that suggests the use of cloud data in a malicious manner. UBA (user behavior analytics) (UBA) can detect abnormalities and limit external and internal data loss.

Phase 2: Secure your cloud hosting services

Once you have a clear understanding of your cloud security risks and your cloud security risk profile, you can implement security to your cloud services based on their level of risk. There are a variety of cloud security tools that can help you achieve the guidelines below:

  • First step: Implement security policies for data. With your data being designated as confidential or controlled and regulated, you can set rules that determine what information is stored on the cloud. You can also and quarantine or delete sensitive data within the cloud. You can also guide users to take action if they commit a mistake that could violate one of your policies.
  • 2. Secure sensitive data using your own key. Encryption available within cloud services can protect your data from unauthorized access However, cloud service providers retains access to the encryption keys. Instead, secure your data with your own keys, which means you can fully control access. Users are able to work on the data at any time.
  • 3. Create restrictions on how data can be transferred. From the moment data enters the cloud apply your access control rules over a number of services or one. Begin by setting groups or users to view or editor, and limiting what data can be shared with the outside world via hyperlinks shared.
  • step 4: Block the transfer of data to unmanaged devices that you do not know about. Cloud services provide access to any device connected to the internet, however access to unmanaged devices such as a personal phone can create an unintentional gap in your security measures. Stop downloading to devices that are not managed by requiring verification of security on the device prior to downloading.
  • Step 5: Apply advanced malware protection to infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) such as AWS or Azure. In IaaS environments, you’re responsible for the security of your operating systems, applications, and network traffic. Anti-malware technology can be added to the OS and the virtual network to secure your infrastructure. Install whitelisting for applications and memory exploit protection for single-purpose tasks and machine-learning-based security for general purpose workloads as well as storage of files.

Third Phase: React to Cloud Security concerns

When you cloud-based services continue utilized and accessed in a variety of ways, you will encounter incidents that require an automated or manual responses regularly as with the other environments in which IT is used. Use these guidelines to start with your security and incident management process:

  • First step: Request an additional authentication process for access scenarios with high risk. If a user is accessing sensitive data on cloud services from a brand new device, for instance, it will immediately require two-factor authentication to verify their identity.
  • 2. Refine cloud access policies when new services become available. You can’t predict the cloud services that will be accessed, however, you can automate updating internet access rules, like those that are enforced by a secure internet gateway, with details about the risks associated with the cloud service, to prevent access or show an alert. This can be accomplished by integrating the cloud risk database with your secure firewall or web gateway.
  • 3. Get rid of malware cloud services. It is possible for malware to attack an shared folder that syncs automatically to cloud storage and replicate the malware into the cloud with no user intervention. Check your cloud storage using an anti-malware program to prevent ransomware or cyber-attacks on your data.

Finally

As cloud-based services develop and evolve, so do the threats and challenges you will face when you use cloud services. Make sure you are aware of any updates to features offered by cloud providers that concern security, and you can modify your security policies to meet the new requirements. Security providers are able to adjust the threat information and machine-learning models to ensure they are up to date also. When it comes to the phases and best practices mentioned above various key technologies may be utilized to achieve each step, usually together with the native security features of cloud-based providers.
