With the current paradigm shift towards cloud computing, it’s evident many companies are optimistically investing in cloud solutions. While some corporations are starting their private cloud infrastructure, other early adopters are driving out applications by developing directly in public cloud platforms, and even more are procuring software capabilities from the litany of Software as a Service (SaaS) vendors. No matter what your level of “Cloud Maturity” is or which deployment models you choose (SaaS, PaaS, or IaaS), there are certain essential architectural considerations when designing cloud environments. This is especially true for companies sharing information from their corporate applications into the cloud and vice versa-integrating existing systems with the cloud can be a daunting task. Sharing information with the cloud seems to be a concern for many CIO’s, since they haven’t established a level of trust with their cloud yet. This article explores the more critical characteristics of integrating to and from the cloud, and how to ensure your solution is stable, scalable, and interoperable. Consider this your Essential Cloud Integration Checklist.
