An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

– Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), author, politician and scientist.

At CloudTweaks, we are ardent believers of collecting, and disseminating, knowledge about cloud computing. That is why we have engaged writers from different industries and geographies to offer their unique perspectives on the subject. From info graphics to opinion pieces, from interviews to cartoons, we have used multiple tools to spread the light of cloud computing. Now, we are offering readers access to whitepapers from reputed sources to augment their cloud knowledge.

In this article, the first of a planned series, we look at some of the more interesting papers that we believe will add value to our readers.

1. Three Things to Consider Before Implementing Cloud Protection

The best lightning rod for your protection is your own spine.

Since information is one of the most valuable commodities today, one of the best ways to protect your business from unforeseen disasters, both natural and man-made, is to backup your data. This paper enumerates what’s important when considering backing up your data to the cloud.- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), American poet and lecturer.

2. 7 Essential Benefits of Hybrid Cloud Backup

It might be said now that I have the best of both worlds. A Harvard education and a Yale degree.”

– John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), 35th President of the United States.

Building on the previous paper, here’s one that looks specifically at hybrid cloud backup. As you know, hybrid clouds combine the best of private and public clouds and address several of their limitations. This paper from Datto, a leading backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and intelligent business continuity (IBC) vendor, tells you how your best bet may be the hybrid cloud .

3. How to Decide Whether SaaS ITSSM Tools Make Sense for Your Organization

If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.

– Lord Kelvin (1824-1907), British physicist and engineer.

Lord Kelvin, father of the absolute temperature scale now named after him, can be considered the father of the modern management doctrine of “What cannot be measured cannot be managed”. Several businesses are looking to leverage the power of the cloud in their IT support organizations. This Gartner paper  provides a detailed look at SaaS-based tools and whether they are the right choice for your organizations, especially since “By 2014, 30% of I&O (Infrastructure & Operations) organizations using SaaS ITSSM (Information Technology Service Support Management) tools will switch back to on-premises ITSSM solutions”.

4. Evaluating Managed File Transfer in the Cloud: What You Need to Know

To me, if life boils down to one thing, it’s movement. To live is to keep moving.”

– Jerry Seinfeld, popular American comedian and performer.

If movement is essential to life, movement of data is essential to business. Data movement through files occurs across multiple stakeholders – business to business, business to consumer, system to system, system to user, etc. – and multiple methods – email, FTP, cloud, etc. However, managing these movements to ensure security and compliance is no easy task. This paper offers a comprehensive look at what businesses need to keep in mind as regards managed file transfers in the cloud.

That’s it for this week. We look forward to presenting more such illuminating papers next week.
