Cloud adoption is an evolutionary process that has been leading to hybrid clouds—specifically, open hybrid clouds that provide for portability of applications and data. This new model means avoiding new points of proprietary lock-in and new silos, and breaking from proprietary software and hardware.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored on premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where you may have less immediate control, you must still control your sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.

With HIPAA audits now randomized, you must be prepared for them every day. And with state regulations requiring compliance-breach reporting, you must become your own auditor. HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the 1996 federal regulation that mandated health-data privacy.This regulation requires compliance by all insurers and health care providers, including physician’s offices, hospitals, health plans, employers, public health authorities, life insurers, clearinghouses, billing agencies, information systems vendors, service organizations, and universities.But that’s not all.
All enterprises dealing with private data in test environments should mask or generate test data to comply with regulations such as Payment Card Industry (PCI), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), and European Union (EU) as well as to protect against internal and external attacks.

Intelligent N+X Redundancy, Placement Affinities, & Future Proofing in the Virtualized Data Center
Virtualization brought about the ability to simplify business continuity management in IT. Workload portability and data replication capabilities mean that physical infrastructure failures no longer need impact application services, and they can rapidly be recovered even in the event of complete site failure.
However, Enterprises and Service Providers face new challenges ensuring they have enough compute capacity in their virtualized data centers to support their business continuity requirements, while at the same time not over provisioning infrastructure capacity resulting in unnecessary capital expenditure.
This collection of insights, market trends and best practice recommendations, suggest ideas that are relevant for any organization evaluating or managing a hybrid cloud environment. NetApp enables unrestricted yet secure movement of data across any public and private clouds, allowing you to move to hybrid cloud architectures.
