Cloud Storage Flavors: Platform/Infrastructure and Service/Product

Take a look at the various data storage offerings called "cloud" and your head will start to ache. How can so many things all bear the "cloud storage" name and yet be so totally different? The answer is obvious to long-time industry observers: Each provider has tailored their offering to make it distinct in the market, and each supports different use cases Infrastructure versus Platform Although I am not one to tilt at windmills, especially when it comes to arguing the "rightness" of cloud-based marketing, I sometimes do hit upon a set of terminology that makes sense to me. Wading through the mess of "as-a-service" or "XaaS" names posted by my friend Greg Schulz the other day, it occurred to me that drawing a line between a platform and its underlying infrastructure is quite useful indeed. As Jeff Darcy points out, one can use this distinction to help make sense of t... (more)

Setting up an ASP.NET MVC 2 Application for Windows Azure

Yesterday, Microsoft released another update to the Windows Azure SDK. This update includes a truckload of new goodies that I will be covering in additional blog posts. For this blog post, however, I want to walk you through getting an ASP.NET MVC 2 application working on Windows Azure in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2. Now that Azure and VS2010 are finally starting to sync up, the amount of raw goodness coming out of Redmond cannot be measured. First, install the Windows Azure SDK and the Windows Azure Tools for Visual Studio, making sure you pay attention to all of the installation details. There are lots of little hotfixes and things that you might need. Luckily, if you're running VS2010 Beta 2 on Windows 7, you have very little extra work to do beyond configuring IIS 7 for WCF HTTP activation. Once you've got that installed, create a new project. The project template ... (more)

Migrating Data from Amazon S3 to Azure

Windows Azure Session at Cloud Expo Windows Azure enables the hosting of web applications in Microsoft data centers on a scalable and highly available platform. To do so, Microsoft has provided a set of services aimed at making it easier for developers to build applications that scale and elastically utilize physical or logical resources in the cloud. They have also provided a lot of value to lure customers away from services like Amazon S3. Depending on usage patterns, storage is cheaper on Azure and is also free for the first 8 months; the C# API and dev studio integration are convenient and easy to use; Azure was built with security in mind and, last but not least, it’s really fast. But what if you’d like to enjoy the benefits of becoming an Azure blob storage user without writing any code? What if you’ve already stored terabytes of information with another provi... (more)

Like “API” Is “Storage Tier” Redefining Itself?

There is an interesting bit in high-tech that isn’t much mentioned but happens pretty regularly – when a good idea is adapted and moved to new uses, raising it a bit in the stack or revising it to keep up with the times. The quintessential example of this phenomenon is the progression from “subroutines” to “libraries” to “frameworks” to “APIs” to “Web Services”. The progression is logical and useful, but those assembler and C programmers that were first stuffing things into reusable subroutines could not have foreseen the entire spectrum of what their “useful” idea was going to become over time. I had the luck of developing in all of  those stages. I wrote assembly routines right before they were no longer necessary for everyday development, and wrote web services/SOA routines for the first couple of years they were about. YES INDEED, THIS IS A STORAGE BLOG I think... (more)

Encrypting Data Held in the Cloud

More and more enterprises now rent space or servers on the cloud to store data. However, the fact that such data remains outside the ambit of the enterprise’s security system and invisible to the enterprise poses a serious security headache. Porticor Virtual Private Data, an Israeli based start-up now offers technology that allows organizations to encrypt data held in the cloud. The service, which includes a Virtual Appliance and an agent software, offers standard AES 256 or Blowfish encryption that has a maximum key length of 2048 bits. A unique “split-key” method adds to the security. The customer holds the master key, common to all data objects such as a disk or the file in the application, and Porticor holds the other key, which is unique for each data object. When the application accesses the data store, Porticor uses both parts of the key to encrypt or decrypt ... (more)

Using Multiple Clouds to Improve IT Resilience

A recent GigaOm article proclaimed “There’s no need to be a one-cloud company.” The article proceeded to highlight reasons why organizations ought to consider distributing their cloud-based applications and risk across multiple cloud providers. While such a tactic may seem unnecessary given the redundancy and SLAs that many cloud providers offer, historical events suggest there is indeed wisdom in relying on more than one cloud. Nearly one year has elapsed since the Amazon EC2 outage of 2011 that took down a number of online businesses including Reddit, HootSuite, Foursquare and Quora, but the impact has not been forgotten. One of the key takeaways from that outage was that organizations using cloud-based IT are responsible for building and following best practices for protecting their infrastructure against outages of all types –not just service interruptions, but a...
