    Carsten Logemann: Managed Hosting – Kompromisse bezüglich Sicherheit, Flexibilität, Performanz und …

    WordCamp Frankfurt 2016Speaker: Carsten Logemann

    September 8, 2016 — Jede/r, der/die Verantwortung für eine Webanwendung übernimmt sollte ein gewisses Grundverständnis von den Services haben, welche sie/er bei Hosting-Diensleistern einkauft. Zu diesem Grundverständnis beizutragen ist Ziel dieser Session.

    Es geht in der Session um diverse Spannungsfelder, die sich meiner Meinung nach immer nur mit Kompromissen lösen lassen. Bezüglich Flexibilität und Verfügbarkeit der Website kann man vllt. etwas kompromissbereiter sein, als bei der Sicherheit. Aber da es niemals absolute Sicherheit geben kann, muss man leider auch bei der Sicherheit mit Kompromissen leben. Dies gilt insbesondere für Software, deren Aufgabe es ist, rund um die Uhr (24h pro Tag, 7 Tage die Woche) für jeden Nutzer im Internet erreichbar zu sein.
