If apps are also deployed within the private cloud, the data store may store files and data for these apps, this should be the highest-performing storage system within your entire hybrid cloud storage strategy. It’s all about time and money The costs of local and cloud data persistence is now so inexpensive that using secondary means, even tertiary mean, of storing data as an active backup system for primary persistence, or even as an up-to-date copy of the primary storage, is the best approach. With a few exceptions. In the hybrid cloud storage strategy, the secondary storage system exists in the public cloud. Data is replicated or moved to a public cloud storage system, my preference is as Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Simple Storage Service, to provide active backup for the primary storage system. In other cases, an enterprise might move older data to the public cloud to free up space in primary storage. AWS Glacier would be a great example.

Healthcare organizations are embracing the many advantages of cloud computing, including its scalability, cost-efficiency, and flexibility. While the cloud makes file storage and sharing easy and convenient, its security risks are numerous enough to have given rise to the CASB category. Before implementing a solution, however, it's important to understand how industry regulations impact cloud adoption – and what to look for when selecting a cloud-storage service provider. If your business must be HIPAA compliant, these 10 questions to ensure HIPAA compliance may save you some major heads down the road. Does your cloud provider have the right policies in place? A cloud services provider must have a program that meets specific security policies and procedures as mandated by HIPAA.

With a BAA, cloud providers and all associated parties are liable in the event of data loss or theft. Make sure all the companies handling your data sign a BAA. Do they have a dedicated staff for HIPAA compliance? Your cloud services provider should have dedicated employees on-site working to ensure…
