Setting up and managing cloud infrastructure can have its own set of challenges. For a novice who has little or no technical background, it can take a lot of work to set up a cloud by themselves.
Another challenge, at least with public clouds, is privacy. Once data is uploaded to a cloud server, you can’t really be sure of who is seeing it. The recent iCloud, Sony hacking attacks have shed some light on security best practices in the cloud. Virtkick, a new cloud infrastructure management tool, aims to solve these two main problems. Founders claim Virtkick is dead easy to install and use, and by hosting your cloud infrastructure in your own premises you can be sure that there is no else with access to your data. Lets first take a look at how cloud works and where Virtkick fits in.
