Navigate the Cloud: Risks and Rewards in Cloud Computing

Holland & Knight Webinar
June 2010

The sizzling topic in information technology circles is "cloud computing" – moving your computer network to companies offering IT services, infrastructure, and full suites of software on a subscription basis over the Internet: "in the cloud." When you reach the cloud, your software, data, and IT resources will likely be (i) hosted on so-called "virtual servers" (ii) stored in and retrieved from shared, "multi-tenanted" computing architectures; (iii) monitored by "hypervisors" and (iv) allocated among cloud networks spanning multiple jurisdictions, regulatory regimes, and electronic discovery obligations.

Cloud computing promises to reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and allow a subscriber to "focus on your core business, and leave the driving to us." But with these anticipated benefits come unique risks, which differ in both degree and kind from familiar structures.
