On Wednesday, March 3, 2010 in Palo Alto the SDForum Semantic Web SIG hosted “Intelligence from the Cloud” with presenters Wesley Chun from Google AppEngine Team and Andrew Lampitt from Jaspersoft. They focused on new tools for creating and using web intelligence and semantics in the cloud. Text from DJCline.com

Andrew Lampitt from Jaspersoft and zAgile gave his definitions of business intelligence, semantics, analytics, and the cloud. Jaspersoft deploys business intelligence to the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud and semantic layer in a way business users understand without becoming database developers. zAgile is an ontology-driven context server integrating semantic enterprise information across tools and applications creating a comprehensive description of the complete information architecture. It helps recognize problems and find solutions that were not possible until now. Text from DJCline.com

Wesley Chun from Google AppEngine Team introduced the Google App Engine platform to build and deploy web applications on Google’s high-traffic infrastructure. App Engine executes apps in Python or Java on servers using the same technology that powers Google’s websites for speed and reliability. Developers no longer have to worry about virtual machine images or disk requirements but just provide the code.  He talked about the Google App Engine components, architecture, and developer APIs like memcache, users (Google accounts), email, URLFetch, XMPP, Blobstore, etc. Text from DJCline.com

On December 7, 2009 in Mountain View at the Symantec vCafe, SDForum’s the Cloud Services and Security SIGs presented “Are clouds secure? security, privacy and compliance in clouds” with Subra Kumaraswamy of Oracle Sun Microsystems. Text from DJCline.com.

Ames Cornish started the evening with a review of the year’s worst cyber attacks. Countries attack each other’s networks, corporations engage in espionage, organized crime robs banks and individuals. Passwords, firewalls and encryption can all be overcome with the theft of a single laptop computer. With all of this going on, how do you maintain security?

Kumaraswamye showed how it can be done in his book “Cloud Security and Privacy.” He addressed security and privacy issues raised by our transition to the cloud. Cloud computing helps corporations save money on their IT infrastructure but many are skeptical about security and privacy. Kumaraswamy discussed the challenges to ensure your web applications are secure and your data is safe. He talked about regulatory issues such as privacy, audit, and compliance implications of the security provided by public clouds.

Kumaraswamy reviewed the SPI delivery model which consists of software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Now there is a security-as-a-service (SecS) delivered through the cloud as opposed to the security of other services like SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS offered by cloud service providers). By decided what are core data assets and non-sensitive data, you can focus resources on protecting what is truly necessary and put the rest in the cloud;
