Youtube is full of stuff. I have chosen to show a video that advirtises Cloud solution from Oracle.
This video shows allergories to construction to show how a cloud works. First it shows a public cloud were the islands are connected with bridges. Everyone understand islands and bridges. Bridges are “connectors” between islands and clearly shows how the softwares connect to each other if your buisness needs it. This is a really simple way of showing a connection.
Later on they show how you can have a private cloud. That consists of a private building, also this people can understand easily. By making allergories Oracle tries to explain something complicated easily. But for me, I only have a lot of question. I would like to see the SAD documents and review what type of coding and testing has been done. What type of requirements they have fullfilled. I would like to know what type of safety there really is behind all this. But the customer is problably the CEO´s and not me.
I know that clouds are not as safe as something were you are not connected to the Internet. I think you should allways think that everything online is public, no matter how private you might think it is. A safety is never safer than the passwords and it´s users. Location is allways a risk too. Accessability to locations is also a risk.
Well, see the video yourself and you will understand how the marketeers have shown something complex easily and understandable. But yet lacking the information I would really want.
