End of an era: Cloud Decline rise of Edge Computing?

The rate of cloud adoption has increased rapidly, with more and more computing being pushed into the cloud, a trend identified in Serviceteam IT’s Cloud Snapshot Survey 2017. This growth in cloud computing has led to the development of networks of large data centres. However, this is already starting to slow, with an ever-increasing amount of computing moving back to the ‘edge’ of local networks.

Cloud Security elements every business should consider

Cloud Security has been a serious issue since the concept of the cloud began. The classic example was initially the discomfort of a shift from physically seeing the IT security infrastructure to simply trusting someone else with it virtually. One way to ensure a full understanding of cloud security, and security in general, is to understand the levels of your infrastructure that require protection.
