VMware has released a technical white paper titled: VMware vCloud Directory Security Hardening Guide which may be downloaded here. If you are looking into this technology definitely look into this:

“The VMware® vCloud™ Director Security Hardening Guide helps users who are embarking into the journey of cloud computing understand key security elements and technologies found in VMware’s vCloud Director product. It also provides guidelines and best practices for installation, configuration and operation of secure clouds based on VMware’s vCloud Director.”

I have skimmed the document and it has many important points to consider at just 37 pages it isn’t the definitive guide on cloud security but definitely a start.

Till next time,
