Securing Shared Infrastructure

White Paper

Cloud computing is different from traditional on premise IT. The cloud is a shared infrastructure and when using shared infrastructures, organizations do not control much of the technology that underlies the cloud services they engage, especially networking. Shared infrastructures have their own security considerations that should be assessed before embracing the cloud.

Containers and Cloud Computing

White Paper

You have probably heard of Docker. It’s the container system that has exploded onto the cloud computing scene just five years ago. But if you haven’t, you can think of containers as easily configured, lightweight VMs (virtual machines) that start up fast, often in under a second. Containers are ideal for micro-service architectures and for environments that scale rapidly or release often.

Inclusive Sports Fitness

Case Study

Inclusive Sports and Fitness (ISF) provides physical fitness and sports performance training to children on the autism spectrum or living with other developmental challenges. Initially, Contemporary Computer Services (CCSI), a New York-based systems solution company and Axis partner, planned to install a couple of AXIS Companion Dome Cameras and AXIS Companion video management software for building security. But after brainstorming with CCSI and Axis, ISF also learned how they could use cameras to visually document their athletes’ progress over time.
