Application security programs and practises

The Register live If you ask your Oracle team which infrastructure they want their databases and apps running across, they’ll tell you dedicated. Heaven forbid their IO is interfered with by a lagging virtual infrastructure.

Your Windows camp will probably allow most of their apps on virtual and private clouds. But throw the networking guys these same questions and the answers will be quickly knocked into a cocked hat – and that’s before you get into the mainframe discussion

Fact is, choosing the right infrastructure for your core applications and services, for the right reasons, is a political and practical mine-field.

Some decisions are forced onto you, because of available resources and skills. Some are based on old biases, principles and practices and some are made because there’s just too much Kool aid in the system.

In our broadcast today at 11:00 BST, we're going to try and give you some tools and techniques to improve your confidence that those decisions are being made for the right reasons. David Chalmers of HP and Dale Vile from Freeform Dynamics will explain essential characteristics of deployment models that matter, and provide guidance on how to deal with workload placement objectively.
