This Week in Cloud video - Flame Malware, Security & SLAs with Christian Verstraete, Paul Muller

What do you need to consider when putting a cloud computing SLA into place?  Are there any tools that can help you?  How do you measure the actual SLA for continuous improvement?  Are there tools to help?  What about the Flame virus?  What are the implications of this latest security scare on cloud computing?  


Chief Cloud Technologist Christian Verstraete (a.k.a. - The HP Cloud Source , @christanve) and HPSW Chief Evangelist Paul Muller (@xthestreams) answer these questions and more in the latest episode of “This Week in Cloud” video series.
