As part of migrating from existing in-house infrastructure to the cloud, one of the many challenges to address is the changes in IT policies and conventions. These would apply to procurement of infrastructure, allocating IT resources, billing, managing the life cycle, to coming to terms with the new infrastructure. For example, the traditional 3-tier won't work any more. Also, with advanced cloud networking and security features, the traditional security and networking policies cannot be migrated as is.
In this talk, we will cover how to view cloud infrastructure, how to assess current policies and their origin and relevance, and how to ensure that the defense and due diligence are not lost when migrating to the cloud, while also not losing out on the benefits that cloud infrastructure brings us.
