Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure and Operations Explained

By: Mansura Habiba

Overview of this book

Most organizations are now either moving to the cloud through modernization or building their apps in the cloud. Hybrid cloud is one of the best approaches for cloud migration and the modernization journey for any enterprise. This is why, along with coding skills, developers need to know the big picture of cloud footprint and be aware of the integration models between apps in a hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure. This book represents an overview of your end-to-end journey to the cloud. To be future agnostic, the journey starts with a hybrid cloud. You'll gain an overall understanding of how to approach migration to the cloud using hybrid cloud technologies from IBM and Red Hat. Next, you’ll be able to explore the challenges, requirements (both functional and non-functional), and the process of app modernization for enterprises by analyzing various use cases. The book then provides you with insights into the different reference solutions for app modernization on the cloud, which will help you to learn how to design and implement patterns and best practices in your job. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to successfully modernize applications and cloud infrastructure in hyperscaler public clouds such as IBM and hybrid clouds using Red Hat technologies as well as develop secure applications for cloud environments.

Getting familiar with Cloud Pak for Security as a Service on IBM Cloud

Organizations’ workloads, such as data and applications, are attacked every day. Unfortunately, many organizations cannot detect and remediate attacks that quickly. Often, particular skills and subject matter experts (SMEs) are needed to investigate such attacks and resolve them accordingly. Therefore, security threats are one of the primary areas where organizations face extensive loss.

Cloud Pak for Security (CP4S) can put the information that security SMEs need at their fingertips to mitigate threats, including four key areas of capability: visibility, detect, investigate, and respond. It provides necessary information in a more comprehensive visualization and acts autonomously to disconnect compromised systems once they have been identified via automated checking and investigation. CP4S works with a wide variety of IBM and non-IBM security tools, including Splunk, ArcSight, Microsoft Azure, Amazon...
