Technologist Discusses the Cloud

In September, Dr. Ken Bedford, chief technologist, U.S. Army and Air Force, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, Plano, Texas, enlightened the chapter on the subtleties of the cloud. Bedford explained the cloud is an evolutionary change in technology. You can buy a cloud, but you have to learn how to cloud to do it effectively, Bedford said. If a business attempts to automate everything, it will be very expensive, especially if every script is different. Yet, if done properly with extensible coding across the enterprise, significant savings can be realized and applications more fully rationalized. Bedford discussed how the cloud infrastructure requires systems life cycle and operational management. All aspects of the cloud should be approached from the enterprise level. There should be standard cloud implementation and sustainment procedures. Bedford also talked about the importance of cloud security and having certification and accreditation of systems. In parting, Bedford reiterated the concept of ruthless standardization providing the highest level of automation.
