How to Develop Application on Cloud?

The massive adoption of Cloud Computing across businesses has proven us how beneficial this technology for industry is. By reducing capital investment in infrastructure and maintenance and ensure the availability of resources, the cloud is often the solution for business needs. Thus, it’s no longer strange to see enterprises more inclined towards cloud-based technology and rapidly hosting their system on cloud. Especially, when it comes to business application development.

However, developing business application on cloud is not as simple as you think. Instead, it has technical complexity and is challenging. The several challenges that need to be addressed by business, are:

  • Scalability: As you see the scalability of the product you deployed depends on the quality of the server. If you want the development on cloud to go smooth, then you will need excellent scalability opportunities to enable more users to manage it regularly. Thus, business will enjoy the higher profit of it.
  • Security: As it is stated before, developing application on cloud is not as simple as you think. Business also requires to watch their cloud security from the provider to avoid data breaches. To guarantee your companies utmost data privacy, business should use data encryption, ensure the cloud has SSL, and determine the provider with the trusted data regulation and compliance.

If business succeeds in obtaining those obstacles, then the development on cloud might go well for business. Therefore, this article provides three requirements that business need to prepare to obtain the challenge of developing application on cloud. Read them below here:

1. Development requirements

Before developing the application on cloud, you need to determine how its environment will work on cloud. If the dynamic scalability was the main reason for looking to the cloud, then its application should be engineered to take advantage of a parallel architecture.

Meanwhile, if it is designed with multi-threaded code that allows processing to be split into small chunks, it’s well suited for use within the cloud. On the other side, if an application is designed around single monolithic thread processing, it will be difficult to take advantage of the cloud’s distributed nature.

2. Application License

Most applications are made up of many different components that have some type of licensing agreement associated with them. If you want to develop it on cloud, you need to review each of those agreements to determine how that license will be affected by cloud deployment.

On the other hand, if your application uses a component that is licensed by CPU and you want to deploy it on cloud designed to launch new instances with more resources, you could easily exceed your CPU license limit. Therefore you need to review how your licenses affect the ability to scale by cloud.

3. Data Security

As stated before, developing application on cloud also requires security to avoid any threats or data breaches. Therefore, these critical security components are important to prepare:

  • In developing application on cloud, its data must be protected. Therefore, the application must provide a mechanism to protect the data stored in cloud. Encrypting data can be the solution for this, so it will prevent data breaches.
  • According to TechTarget.com, server-to-server communications are typically forgotten because they only happen within the data center. You will require to ensure the security of each server or cloud instances communication, in addition to the client to server communications.
  • Whether you only need cloud for application development, data protection is needed either at application or the transmission level. Therefore, business need to determine if the SSL has included with the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols.

Any application can be deployed on cloud. However, those elements above are also needed to succeed the development. Especially, for Human Resources Information System (HRIS). Therefore, to help you maximize the simple and secure development of application on cloud like HRIS cloud, you can join us on “Zettagrid e-TechDay: Simplify and Secure Your HR Management with HRIS Cloud”, on Tuesday, 31 August 2021.

Oleh karena itu, solusi teknologi pun kian diminati oleh berbagai organisasi. Selain karena memanfaatkan virtualisasi, hal tersebut juga turut mempengaruhi agilitas bisnis.

Salah satu teknologi yang banyak dimanfaatkan oleh bisnis adalah Virtual Data Center. Pada artikel sebelumnya, Virtual Data Center disebut juga sebagai kumpulan dari kapasitas cloud (vCPU, RAM, HDD, dan satu atau lebih IP Public). Dengan kumpulan kapasitas tersebut, Anda dapat membuat virtual mesin dengan konfigurasi yang dibutuhkan dari template public catalog OS yang sudah terpasang atau menginstal OS dari image ISO Anda sendiri.

Selain itu, kapasitas Virtual Data Center (lokal network, NAT, Firewall, Load Balancer, VPN/Metro Ethernet, dan lainnya) serta pengelompokkan virtual mesin ke dalam cluster (vApp) juga dapat disesuaikan tergantung fungsi dan kebutuhan aplikasi bisnis. Dengan demikian, ini akan mendukung virtualisasi dan agilitas bisnis dalam mengembangkan produk, sistem, maupun menyimpan datanya.

Lalu, apa saja yang bisa bisnis rasakan dari Virtual Data Center?

In maintaining IT environment, business storage certainly has its nuances. To operate better, business needs the operational flexibility to address them. But, no worries! Hybrid Cloud adoption can help business through the needs with more deployment options than other storage models.

As the comparison, for the on-premise component, business can only choose the options that range from zero-up-front cost software running on the business servers, to multi-petabyte turnkey system. Meanwhile, for the cloud component, a range of offerings could be long-term or short-term storage needs. Therefore, cloud storage enables business to mix and match the optimal solution. Whether it is for the rapid data access on-premises or long-term archival storage, these needs can be done by a common set of storage techniques and tools.

2. Hybrid Cloud offers better data protection strategy

Realize it or not, data protection is fundamental to every business storage. With the large data, applications, and systems it contained, business have to protect its storage so it could get off of the threats of data loss. Hybrid cloud storage model offers business of all sizes incredible data protection options, such as backup deployment.

With a hybrid configuration, you can backup data to object storage on premises, then automatically tier data to the cloud for long-term archive. 

In this way, business could have two optimal results: business have a copy of data on-site for rapid recovery and a low-cost, long-term archive offsite copy for disaster recovery.

3. Help business meet data governance rules

Mengapa Vulnerability Assessment Penting untuk Keamanan Siber?

Di era digital seperti sekarang, keamanan siber sangat penting untuk diutamakan oleh berbagai organisasi. Selain karena untuk memenuhi regulasi kepatuhan data perusahaan, strategi keamanan siber juga penting untuk melindungi data dari ancaman peretasan sistem hingga serangan hacker. Oleh karena itu, organisasi perlu memikirkan ulang fitur keamanan yang bisa digunakan untuk melindungi sistem IT-nya. Salah satunya dengan menggunakan Vulnerability Assessment.

Menurut searchsecurity.techtarget.com, Vulnerability Assessment merupakan proses identifikasi risiko dan kerentanan pada sistem, jaringan komputer, aplikasi, atau bagian lain yang ada di ekosistem IT. Fitur ini berfungsi untuk membantu bisnis menunjukan kelemahan di sistem IT seperti coding bugs, security holes, dan lainnya. Dengan demikian, organisasi dapat dengan cepat menambal kelemahan paling berisiko tersebut sebelum hacker mengeksploitasinya.

Lalu, apa yang bisa didapat organisasi ketika menggunakan Vulnerability Assessment?

vulnerability assessment penting

(Source: ninitta from Getty Images)

Secara garis besar, terdapat beberapa alasan mengapa Vulnerability Assessment penting untuk digunakan oleh organisasi. Beberapa di antaranya, ialah:

  • Organisasi dapat mengidentifikasi ancaman atau kelemahan keamanan sistem sejak awal sebelum pelanggaran terjadi.
  • Organisasi dapat dengan mudah memahami kerentanan berdasarkan prioritas, urgensi, serta dampak yang dapat ditimbulkan.
  • Melindungi pelanggaran data dan akses tidak sah lainnya.
  • Membantu perusahaan untuk terhindar dari denda atau tuntutan hukum jika terjadi pelanggaran data. 

Hal rentan apa saja yang bisa diungkap oleh Vulnerability Assessment?

vulnerability assessment penting

(Source: Wpadington from Getty Images)

Selain menginformasikan adanya kesalahan konfigurasi pada sistem IT, Vulnerability Assessment juga penting untuk mengungkap berbagai masalah yang terjadi pada sistem hardware maupun software. Beberapa di antaranya, ialah:

  • Kata sandi default pada perangkat tertentu
  • Perangkat yang menjalankan layanan yang tidak perlu
  • Layanan web yang mengandung unknown vulnerabilities
  • Layanan yang tidak seharusnya dijalankan di beberapa perangkat
  • Aplikasi berbahaya, seperti aplikasi peer-to-peer
  • Aplikasi pihak ketiga

Selain itu, banyak Vulnerability Assessment juga penting untuk mengawasi tanda-tanda hacker berdasarkan perilaku komputer. Dengan mengetahui hal tersebut, ini dapat membantu organisasi meminimalisir terjadinya peretasan data.

7 kiat membangun Vulnerability Assessment yang efektif

1. Mengidentifikasi dan memahami proses bisnis

Langkah pertama membangun Vulnerability Assessment yang efektif, dimulai dengan berfokus pada proses yang paling kritis dan sensitif. Dalam hal ini organisasi bisa mulai dengan regulasi kepatuhan penyimpanan data, privasi pelanggan, dan posisi kompetitif manajemen. Latihan ini akan membutuhkan upaya kolaboratif antara tim IT dan unit bisnis lainnya agar Anda bisa memahami proses kerja bisnis.

2. Identifikasi aplikasi dan data yang mendukung proses bisnis

Beri peringkat untuk setiap proses dan aktivitas bisnis, lalu tandai aplikasi dan data yang bergantung pada proses tersebut. Misalnya, satu departemen mungkin benar-benar membutuhkan akses email untuk melakukan pekerjaan mereka, sedangkan departemen lain tidak begitu membutuhkan email untuk aktivitas kerjanya.

3. Identifikasi setiap sumber data yang tersimpan

Untuk membangun keamanan siber yang efektif dengan Vulnerability Assessment, Anda tidak boleh lupa untuk memperhitungkan perangkat seluler dan PC Desktop. Hal ini dilakukan karena perangkat keduanya memiliki kemungkinan besar berisi data organisasi paling terbaru dan sensitif.

Tak hanya itu, Anda juga perlu mengidentifikasi pengguna perangkat tersebut untuk mengakses dan berbagi aplikasi serta data perusahaan. Dengan demikian, Anda dapat memahami bagaimana data dibagikan di antara pengguna tersebut. 

4. Ketahui jenis hardware yang digunakan untuk aplikasi dan data 

Mengurangi lapisan infrastruktur bisa menjadi cara untuk mengetahui server mana yang menjalankan aplikasi penting. Selain itu, Anda juga perlu mengidentifikasi perangkat penyimpanan data yang menampung data sensitif dari aplikasi yang digunakan tersebut. Sehingga, Anda bisa menentukan akses mana yang perlu diidentifikasi oleh Vulnerability Assessment.

5. Petakan infrastruktur jaringan yang menghubungkan perangkat 

Untuk membangun Vulnerability Assessment yang efektif, organisasi perlu memetakan infrastruktur jaringan yang menghubungkan perangkat. Anda bisa mulai dengan memahami router dan perangkat jaringan yang digunakan hardware untuk menghasilkan kinerja Vulnerability Assessment yang cepat dan aman. 

6. Identifikasi sistem keamanan pada infrastruktur Anda

Fitur keamanan seperti kebijakan sistem, firewall, intrusion detection, dan Virtual Private Networks kerap kali digunakan untuk melindungi sistem IT dan data organisasi. Bila Anda menggunakan salah satunya, maka sangat penting bagi Anda untuk memahami kemampuan fitur tersebut dan kerentanan yang ditangani secara langsung. Dengan demikian, ini akan membantu Anda dalam membangun Vulnerability Assessment yang efektif.

7. Jalankan Vulnerability Scan

Setelah tim Anda berhasil memahami dan memetakan aplikasi, data, serta infrastruktur dan perlindungan jaringan, maka selanjutnya tim IT perlu menentukan kapan waktu yang tepat untuk menjalankan Vulnerability Scan.

Itulah beberapa cara yang bisa Anda jalankan untuk mencapai Vulnerability Assessment yang efektif. Bila Anda memiliki pertanyaan lebih lanjut tentang Vulnerability Assessment untuk memperkuat keamanan siber organisasi, Anda bisa menghubungi kami di sini atau ke sales@zettagrid.id.

3 Reasons Why Business Needs VDC Backup

Business VDC Backup

3 Reasons Why Business Needs VDC Backup

The development of digital technology has indeed opened many opportunities for the industry. Ranging from education, lifestyle, healthcare, and other business is now digital as technology solutions arise. Therefore, it is not a surprise anymore to see many businesses automate and scale up their IT capacity to be agile to compete in this era. One of them even utilizing Virtual Data Center (VDC) for that need.

As it is stated in the article before, the role of VDC can replace the need for business to own and operate their own data center. Rather than relying on physical servers to protect business systems and applications, now you can have virtual servers in a private, public, or hybrid cloud environment.

However, using VDC only is not enough for business to manage its IT infrastructure. A data protection strategy like VDC Backup is also needed to secure its system and applications that run virtually. Thus, business can securely store their systems and applications in their VDC.

Then, is there any reason why business needs VDC backup to strengthen its system? Read them below here:

1. Data Loss Can Cost Serious Money

Having a regular backups are an insurance policy for business. So much of the modern business supported by computer networks, a loss of your network data can have a crippling financial effect on business.

Ponemon Institute found that a major IT leaders have experienced that incidents led to data loss. With the global average cost that was a staggering $3.6 million, the enterprises approximately had lost $141 per data record.

Even small security breaches impacting a small number of files, it can still have a major impact. A report from Verizon found that small breaches, which involves the loss of fewer than 100 files, can cost business between $18,120 and $35,70. Rather than business throw that money at a preventable problem regularly, then it’s time to implement an effective Backup strategy like VDC Backup.

2. Ransomware

Besides natural disasters, business also needs to prepare for cyberattacks. As digital technology evolves, many challenges like cyber-threat might come and lead business to loss.

According to The Hacker News, new ransomware strains called NotPetya, Wormable DarkRadiation, REvil Ransomware, and so on are found and targets Linux OS and Docker Container. If this ransomware strikes your business, you must be careful as those will encrypt the business files/directories in the OS.

However, enterprise shouldn’t be worried about this. As long as it has VDC Backup for the solution of a ransomware attack, business will minimize the potential of data loss anytime it wants. Furthermore, VDC Backup like in Zettagrid Indonesia also offers business self-service backup and recovery options. Thus, business will experience the ease of a secure, native integration in the VMware vCloud Director.

3. Regulatory Compliance

Many companies are constantly challenged in meeting policy and regulations for data storage, digital transactions management, and disaster recovery. Regulations tend to be industry-specific and call for the confidentially, portability, and accessibility of information.

Data Backup and business continuity policies must be executed to achieve data compliance. With VDC Backup like in Zettagrid Indonesia, business can leverage its data protection and disaster recovery for regulatory compliance and provide consistent business value and customer satisfaction. 

Then, what is the right backup strategy?

  • Cloud Backups: This could be an essential part of a smart backup strategy. By implementing Cloud Backup like VDC Backup, it will ensure that if your business suffers a natural disaster, you are able to restore your data off-site.
  • Encryption of Data In-Transit: Before being Backed up, the data should be encrypted when in transit. If business passed this step, hackers can snoop on data. That’s why, a smart encryption plan is key to overall data protection across your network.
  • The 3-2-1 Strategy: The 3-2-1 strategy for backups can be effective to build data protection strategy. It involves three backups located in two locations, such as on-premise and cloud storage locations. Finally, you should produce these backups at least once a day for maximum protection.
  • 24/7 Support: When your network goes down or you suffer data loss, you want a partner that can quickly restore your system from a backup no matter what day or time it is. A 24/7 support team like at Zettagrid Indonesia, will help you to recover the data back. Therefore, enterprise does not have to be panic once it happened.
  • Testing Backups: It’s important you work with a provider that tests the integrity of backups, considering a backup report can let you know if any files failed to transfer or if any corruptions occurred. Therefore, testing your backup solution regularly is important to achieve the effective recovery.

Zettagrid Indonesia is a Cloud Service Provider from Indonesia that provides cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), such as Virtual Data Center (VDC), Virtual Private Server (VPS), VDC Backup, Disaster Recovery, and so on.
