Moving to the Cloud

The Benefits of Moving Your FileNet and CMOD System to the Cloud

The synergies and advantages of bringing your IBM FileNet or your Content Manager OnDemand (CMOD) system to the cloud are numerous. But for organizations making the move to the cloud, it is even more critical to ensure your content and workloads meet with compliance standards and are protected in this new environment. enChoice Cloud Services ensures your information assets are secured in the cloud. Our hosting providers and security offering provide the reliability, scalability and flexibility required to maintain business continuity and protect your assets.

Security

A host of cost-effective security offerings are available that do not require you to purchase them to your own data center, you can simply add them for the workloads you are using in the cloud.

Network firewalls are built into your Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), and you can add Web application firewalls, encryption at rest and in motion, key management services for encryption. You can also include monitoring and logging of your API calls, log aggregation and threshold monitoring with alerts. A lot of this monitoring and logging is very helpful for your compliance requirements – things like HIPAA and PCI.

There are a number of third-party marketplace pay-as-you-go offerings for adding security to your workloads.

For customers with significant security requirements, find and utilize datacenters that specialize in security with a high performing hosting infrastructure with native security features fully managed by a security operations center.

Scaling & Flexibility

Flexibility is one of the greatest features of the cloud – allowing you to scale up or down as needed.

When you hit a specific threshold on your CPU or on your RAM you can automatically scale up new server storage or environments, or create new ones at the push of a button, and it takes minutes or less to accomplish.
