Cloud storage has become incredibly user-friendly, whether you’re an administrator, developer, or end-user, the centralized portal and API tools facilitate quick and efficient operations.
Despite the protections that cloud storage providers have in place, storing data in the cloud increases the attack surface area. Users must take the additional safeguards of protecting root account information, configuring MFA, and using data immutability options.
At the same time, the administrator must oversee all back-end operations that go with maintaining cloud storage and delivering storage services. New storage management tools make it simple to provision storage, forecast capacity trends, and share usage information other users.
This session will explore:
- The cloud storage management policies that protect your data from accidental loss or malicious attack
- How to combat cloud account sprawl
- Monitoring for the bigger picture
- The creation and modification of subaccounts for charge-back or show-back purposes
