Resilient Cloud: Maintaining Service in the Face of Developing Threats

In just a few years, cloud computing has grown from a small niche to one of the hottest topics in IT. Many of the benefits users derive from cloud computing stem from the way cloud redefines IT operations. Formerly complex and time consuming tasks such as deployments, server and software configuration, applications management and even disaster recovery planning become simple, routine, and often something users can do themselves via a web interface.

In the defense context this flexibility opens new perspectives in terms of usage (resource consuming applications can be scheduled according to operational priorities) or resources sharing within a coalition. On-demand resources, dynamic provisioning, and automatic recovery from hardware failures are all available instantly when moving to the cloud. These new capacities, however, come with new risks and vulnerabilities that defense cloud providers must proactively mitigate.
