The responsibility for  Governance, Risk and Compliance cannot be transferred away when decisions are made to migrate to Cloud technology models.

As the delegation of services to into the Cloud increases,  the responsibility of the decision  makers to maintain comprehensive Service Level Agreements (SLAs) with their providers also increases.

Bandwidth management is critical as functional dependence upon network response for delivering web based applications and data increases. Connections that had been good enough for downloading and reading email may prove painfully inadequate for business process depending upon the Cloud.

Information Systems Designs
for the Cloud

Driving forces have changed and continue to change at an ever increasing rate the manner in which Information Technologies are licensed and distributed. Platform, Infrastructure, Software, Support, and Security may each be contracted as a service provided over an Internet connection.

Small businesses that self manage their Information Systems and their Service Level Agreements, (SLAs), are increasingly at risk. Advanced Persistant Threats, (APTs), are left undetected on their systems, until an obvious error brings attention to the device(s).
Advanced Persistent Threats"

A Typical, Current SMB Model

Corporations and government entities benefit from centralizing their information technology resources and security systems.

Private Cloud Model

A new model is presented for the Cloud Based Network Operations Center, a clearinghouse providing network confidentiality and integrity for its subscibers by managing Cloud based functional vlans between the businesses.

SMB Cloud Model

The changing demands for systems access, economics, and ecological impacts, have redefined the implementation models of Information Technologies for businesses.

Pay for Use models of Cloud provisioning hold economies of scale opportunities as well as opportunities to broaden the scope a business participates in.

Teleconferencing, remote backup sites, and advanced software capabilities become within the reach of even micro-businesses.

Concentric Systems:

Information architecture is comprised of the structural design of data, how it is stored, retrieved, distributed, displayed, controlled, and how it is protected. The definition of concentric is “having a common center.” (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 2012) The TCP/IP protocol has become the standard, multi-purpose, communication language. Concentric Systems design, engineering, and administration, involves the centralized access and control of all available TCP/IP systems and devices.
