Tech Article: Securing a Cloud-Based Data Center
When you build a private cloud, you need to protect sensitive data not only while it's in storage, but also during transmission
between servers and clients, and when it's being used by an application. When a project is completed, the cloud must securely
delete sensitive data and make sure the original data is kept secure. These are just some of the many security precautions

on cloud deployments that use the Oracle Solaris Remote Lab as a case study.
