Lift & Shift: cloud security strategy
Intro # When companies move their infrastructures into the cloud, provisioning resources and configuring them to emulate their initial infrastructure — a practice called “lift and shift” — or migrate the existing solutions from one platform to another, something inevitably migrates together with all the code and assets: their security assumptions . The security assumptions affect the major security bottleneck — security team’s time and priorities. And the on-premises threat model and security priorities are very different from cloud-based.
How to Implement Tracing in a Modern Distributed Application
Distributed tracing is incredibly helpful during the integration and optimisation of microservice-rich software. Before implementing tracing as a publicly available feature in the latest version of Acra, we did a small research to catch up with current industry standards in tracing protocols and tools. In this article, we’ve decided to explain, why tracing is a very useful thing and how you can benefit from using it in your projects.
