Undertaking Security Challenges in Hybrid Cloud Environments
Cloud Migration Challenges
As companies move to public and private cloud infrastructures like AWS to modernize their existing infrastructures, they need to make sure that they have enough knowledge of the cloud platform that they are moving into so that they can migrate securely, maximize performance, and optimize costs. Moving data and applications to a cloud environment without proper knowledge and preparation could result in decreased app performance or increased business costs. Hybrid cloud environments make the process more challenging, as they deal with varying design principles and security best practices.
The AWS Well-Architected Framework provides organizations an approach for migrating to and building in the cloud successfully and seamlessly. It has five pillars; operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization. For security, organizations need to understand that it is a shared responsibility.
