Abstract

The economic benefits of cloud computing are encouraging customers to bring complex applications and data into the cloud. However security remains the biggest barrier in the adoption of cloud, and with the advent of multi-cloud and federated clouds in practice security concerns are for applications and data in the cloud. This paper proposes security as a value added service, provisioned dynamically during deployment and operation management of an application in multi-cloud and federated clouds. This paper specifically considers a data protection and a host & application protection solution that are offered as a SaaS appli- cation, to validate the security services in a multi-cloud and federated cloud environment. This paper shares our experiences of validating these security services over a geographically distributed, large scale, multi-cloud and federated cloud infrastructure.
