24 Feb 2012 Hanover - At the CeBIT in Hanover, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the FZI Research Center for Information Technology will present new algorithms to protect data in the Cloud.

For companies, Cloud computing is an inexpensive alternative to a computing centre. But are sensitive company data at an external computing centre protected against both external hackers and insiders? At the CeBIT, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology's demonstrator will show how this problem is solved: A database is encoded and distributed to three different computing centres. In this way, safe data storage in the Cloud is achieved. Even if the hacker possesses insider knowledge of a Cloud supplier, he cannot derive any useful information from the data set fragments of one computing centre only. The combination of encoding with a smart distribution of the data significantly increases safety against internal and external attacks in the Cloud.

Cloud computing offers potentials like dynamic scalability, elasticity, and low costs. Often, however, criteria like reliable service quality, simple connection of the own software stock, and security make companies refrain from the use of Cloud computing. At the CeBIT, FZI will present how hybrid Cloud computing solves the problem. An analysis and simulation method developed by FZI allows to develop an optimized Cloud strategy tailored to the respective customer. Quality properties, such as performance, scalability, reliability, availability, and security, are in the focus. FZI adapts the use of Cloud computing to individual needs and supports the decision on whether to use the public Cloud, private Cloud, or hybrid Cloud.

At the CeBIT, audriga, the spin-off of FZI and KIT, will present a solution for the safe relocation of groupware data in the Cloud. At stand F30 in hall 26, audriga will present how the SaaS service helps users move their e-mail accounts, photos or files between Cloud suppliers in a reliable manner.
