  • How community clouds can help your business | IT Business
    by Optum Hoy hopes the community cloud will eventually be able to offer Iaas SaaS PaaS for customers The service Hoy says has differentiating features tailored specifically for the healthcare industry HIPAA regulations for example regulate how secure certain information must be depending on what it is An e mail exchange between two doctors about the latest in medical trends needs a different level of protection compared to a communication between a doctor and a patient Optum worked with Cisco to create security provisions tailor made for the system that identifies who is entering information what type of information it is and who has access to it But Hoy sees potential for the community cloud According to a Department of Health and Human Services report there have been 385 data breaches the vast majority of which have been lost or stolen physical materials such as laptops and paper records Most of those could be eliminated if we transition healthcare data into a cloud so it s no longer stored on site he says Other community cloud vendors focus on the distinguishing features of their offerings too For example CFN Services which focuses its efforts on providing cloud based IaaS offerings for financial services companies recently launched its Global Financial Services Cloud Financial firms want low latency connections between their operations and the data centres where their cloud based IaaS offerings are managed says CFN CEO Mark Casey Based on its network of 70 partnering data centres around the country including those near the financial capital of the world in New York it provides access for financial firms that are looking for ultra low latency cloud based trading services CFN already works with dozens of financial services companies and he s hoping to expand the company s market share in cloud services with the new offering Haff of Red Hat says he expects more announcements like these in the future Community clouds give vendors an opportunity to differentiate their offerings from competitors while it gives users an opportunity to take advantage of cloud based resources that are made specifically for the industry they work in The biggest question he says is getting individual companies to buy in Network World staff writer Brandon Butler covers cloud computing and social media He can be reached at BButler nww com and found on Twitter at BButlerNWW Post to Twitter Post to Facebook Share on LinkedIn Share on LinkedIn Comment on this article Share with Google More Articles Will retina display shortage impact iPad 3 supply Pirate Party fires broadside on mining company over Facebook lawsuit Cloud Managing Business Medical cloud cloud computing finance health care Industry Verticals infrastructure as a service Internet platform as a service software as a service What topic would you like to see covered in the next issue Read the Computing Canada articles you made happen Democratizing Business Continuity Agility and efficiency through virtual switching Sponsored by Microsoft Browse Articles Related Recent News Leadership Managing Business IT Administration Mobility Related
