In today's economy, companies are trying to assess if they can afford to become PCI compliant. What many of those same companies forget to consider whether they can afford not to be compliant. Since 2007, merchants who were found to be non-compliant with PCI DSS faced fines of $5,000 to $25,000 per month from Visa. It may seem expensive for merchants to install and maintain new security measures to become PCI compliant and validated, but these costs are only a fraction of what it would cost a company to be found in non-compliance or suffer a data breach. Learn more about PCI DSS compliance and how NeoSpire Managed Hosting can help.

As IT advances, organizations are adopting infrastructures that enhance agility and improve efficiency.
Data centers are evolving to a state that is almost unrecognizable from only a few years ago. Numerous forces, such as cloud computing and powerful orchestration solutions, are combining to fundamentally change data centers, making them more powerful, sophisticated, flexible and efficient. Many organizations are adopting a hybrid infrastructure data center model that combines a variety of technologies and methodologies, including virtualization, private clouds and other internal IT resources, along with external options such as hosting, colocation, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings.
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:
Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.

Enterprises grapple with a host of challenges that are spurring the creation of hybrid clouds: collections of computing infrastructure spread across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. This new concept often provokes uncertainty, which must be addressed head on.
As more applications and computing resources move to the cloud, enterprises will become more dependent on cloud vendors, whether the issue is access, hosting, management, or any number of other services. Cloud consumers want to avoid
vendor lock-inóhaving only one cloud provider. They want to know that they will have visibility into data and systems across multiple platforms and providers. They want to be able to move servers and storage around without a negative impact on application availability.
The good news is that more solutions become available every day, but with a learning curve and numerous management challenges and considerations.
