The DIGS DC Day: The Future of Cloud and Data Center - Next-Gen Infrastructure and Cloud Security or how software-defined anything and cloud computing pave the way in future is a "must attend" event for all data center professionals.

For most of the enterprises and service providers, cloud computing is the dominant model for technology innovation and business disruption. Enterprise IT organizations are rapidly trying to define how cloud computing can bring agility to their businesses, but they are challenged with legacy application portfolios, new security models and compliance complexities and regulations. The way how to deploy private, public or hybrid cloud for existing and cloud native applications will have direct impact on their business successes or failures.

The DC Day will help attendees think about the potential of cloud, select the right cloud architectures and services, and will provide ideas and solutions for this new initiatives. The event offers up to 5 parallel session where you can select the one’s which are of interest for you. NIL will be there with the presentation "Cloud Automation Security: The elephant in the room" by Jan Bervar, Senior IT Architect.

About Jan's session "Cloud Automation Security: The elephant in the room"

Remember the times when we did everything (and then some) to protect and minimize access to the management interfaces of our infrastructure, and isolate it from users and production networks? Today, we expose an entire cloud’s API to the Internet, and over IT, aim to provide as much cloud automation functionality as possible.

Think about this for a minute, knowing about our historic (dis)ability to write robust, reliable, and secure software in an emerging industry. I will present various cloud automation risks, and suggest a robust approach for preventing catastrophic automation-related security failures.
