Recent cyber-attacks have shown that cloud computers are resilient to distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that overwhelm traditional Web servers. Look for an even faster migration to cloud computing over the next five years as cyber attacks intensify on traditional servers. R. Colin Johnson, Kyoto Prize Fellow @NextGenLog
Cloud-based Amazon Web Services (AWS) bring on servers to match the users accessing a Website, thereby thwarting attacks.
Recent cyber-attacks have demonstrated that cloud computers can handle distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks that crash traditional servers—for instance, when WikiLeaks briefly hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its latest disclosures. What is it about cloud computers that make them immune to cyber-attacks?
The three main ingredients in cloud computers that make them more resilient against cyber-attacks are elasticity, bandwidth and redundancy.
