Does "The Cloud" Fit Into Your Organization?

Fact #1

“Cloud Computing” means different things to

different people, and that’s OK.

slide3

Cloud Computing Definition

Computing in which applications, data and IT resources are provided to end users as services delivered over a network.

slide4

Types of Clouds

Public Clouds- Allows access to technology-enabled services without knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them.- Also called “external cloud.”

Private Clouds- Activities and functions are provided “as a service,” over a company’s intranet. - Built by an organization for its own users, and everything is delivered within the organization’s firewall (instead of the Internet). - Organization has knowledge of the infrastructure and possibly some control.- The private cloud owner does not share resources with any other companies.

- Also called an “internal cloud.”

Hybrid Clouds- External and internal service delivery methods are integrated. - Rules and policies are established by the organization based on factors such as security needs, criticality and underlying architecture.- Activities and tasks are allocated to external or internal clouds as appropriate.

Cloud Computing Models

Co- LocationDedicated data center facility designed with resources which includes a secured suite, cage or cabinet, regulated power, dedicated Internet connection, security and basic support.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)Raw computing power. Includes servers, networks, storage, management, and reporting.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)Consists of the IaaS layer along with an Operating System and other building blocks. A hosted server running OS/400 is an example.

Software as a Service (SaaS)Applications configured for each customer that run as a hosted service.

Fact #2

Cloud Computing is overhyped right now but it is definitely a shift in the way we deliver computing.

slide11

Industry Shift

“Computing is undergoing a seismic shift.” - Microsoft Nov 2010

“We expect cloud computing to account for $7 billion of our net revenue by 2015.” - IBM 2011

“The money spent on cloud computing is growing at over five times the rate of traditional, on-premise IT.” - Cloud Connect 2010

“Dell is investing $1 billion to expand cloud computing.” – April 2011

“2011 is Year of Platform as a Service (PaaS), and it will engulf the software industry.” – Gartner 2011

“Cloud computing is changing the way that IT resources are utilized and consumed.” – Cisco

slide12

Foundation

  • Client – Server
  • Virtualization
  • Automated provisioning of IT resources
  • Improved Networks
  • Software Multi-tenancy: a single instance of software runs on a server, serving multiple clients
slide13

Fact #3

Cloud Computing is not a “one size fits all” solution.

slide15

Early Adopters

  • Need for a secondary data center
  • Poor Disaster Recovery Plan
  • Testing or Demonstration needs
  • Companies experiencing Growth or Retraction
  • 24 x 7 Operations
  • Companies with home based workers
  • Experiencing Budget constraints (need to do more with less)
slide16

Fact #4

There are some REAL benefits

to Cloud Computing.

slide17

Access to better systems

  • Improve availability (Disaster Recovery)
  • Reduce infrastructure management needs
  • Resolve problems related to updating/upgrading
slide18

Pay only for what we use

  • Hardware, Software and Maintenance savings
  • Lower labor and energy costs
  • Reduce support and management needs
  • Reduce space required to house infrastructure
slide19

Able to scale IT resources to meet needs

  • Take advantage of latest functionalities
  • Rapid deployment
slide20

Fact #5

Security is a major consideration when deploying

Cloud Computing, but Cloud Computing MAY be more secure than on-premise computing.

slide21

Security

  • Security and Privacy
  • Performance
  • Technology Immaturity
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Integration
slide22

Recap

Fact #1: “Cloud Computing” means different things to different people, and that’s OK.

Fact #2: Cloud Computing is overhyped right now but it is definitely a shift in computing.

Fact #3: Cloud Computing is not a “one size fits all” solution.

Fact #4: There are some real benefits to Cloud Computing.

Fact #5: Security is a major consideration when deploying Cloud Computing, but Cloud Computing MAY more secure than on-premise computing.
