Seminar on Cloud Computing

Hosted by Portugal Telecom (PT) in December, the chapter organized in a one-day technical seminar on “Cloud Computing: The Information Security,” at the new PT data center located in the town of Covilha, Portugal. The seminar had 90 participants, mostly senior representatives of the three branches of the Portuguese armed forces, gendarmerie, civil police and civil protection that highly appreciated the chapter initiative. Rear Adm. Mario Durao, PRT NA (Ret.), chaired the industry presentation panel, underlining previous chapter initiatives on information and data security, considering now the importance of cloud computing and its implications. In particular, the companies PT, EMC, Cisco and Symantec presented their approaches on this subject. In the afternoon, there was an opportunity to visit the new next generation PT data center. Internationally certified as Tier III, this data center is impressive not only for its futuristic and daring architecture but above all by its top performance, security, reliability and availability. The entire infrastructure is highly efficient with respect to power consumption and the security of the data center and of all stored data is a top priority.
