Total Virtualization andCloud Computing



  • What is virtualization?

  • Different Computing Models

    • Traditional App/Server

    • Virtual Server model

    • Massively virtualized model (Cloud)

  • Why Virtualization makes sense?

Traditional app server

Traditional App/Server

Virtualization green focus

Virtualization - Green Focus

The Reality:

  • Most servers only use 5-15% of their capabilities on average, while consuming 60-90% of their peak power.

    The Solution - Virtualization:

    • Use one server to host multiple applications.

    • Reduce energy consumption

    • Reduce CO2 emissions

      Running fewer, highly utilized servers frees up space and power. Less space and power is better for environment and saves money.

Virtualization why virtualize

Virtualization - Why Virtualize?

  • Reduce Real Estate Needs

  • Increase Up Time

  • Reduce CO2 Emmissions, Power and Cooling Requirements

  • Increase Flexibility

  • Reduce Overall Costs

Massively virtualized model cloud

Massively Virtualized Model - Cloud

Cloud computing what is it

Cloud Computing - What is it?

NIST definition:

or ...

Cloud Computing is the delivery of computing as a service

Three primary types of cloud offerings:

  • Software as a Service (SaaS)

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Cloud computing services

Cloud Computing - Services

Software as a Service - SaaS

Platform as a Service - PaaS

Infrastructure as a Service - IaaS

Cloud computing key components

Cloud Computing - Key Components

  • Pay as you go

  • Access from anywhere, anytime, any device

  • Economy of scale

  • Flexibility

  • Expertly Managed

Cloud computing green pue

Cloud Computing - Green - PUE

  • How efficient is your data-center?

    •  PUE = Power Usage Effectiveness

Cloud computing and green it

Cloud Computing and Green IT

GSA's Cloud Platforms PUE

Salesforce: 1.5  ---  Google: 1.2

Salesforce is co-located in highly efficientdata centers.

Google manages their own data centers.
