Cloud Computing From 30,000 Feet

“It starts with the premise that the data services and architecture should be on servers. We call it cloud computing – they should be in a ‘cloud’ somewhere. And that if you have the right kind of browser or the right kind of access, it doesn’t matter whether you have a PC or a Mac or a mobile phone or a BlackBerry or what have you – or new devices still to be developed – you can get access to the cloud…” – Dr. Eric Schmidt, Google CEO, August 2006

Explosion of data intensive applications on the Internet

Skyrocketing costsof power, space,maintenance, etc.

The Cloud data center

Advances in multi-core

computer architecture

Fast growth of connected mobile devices

cloud computing and the new enterprise data center

New Enterprise Data Center

System z, System x,

System p, BladeCenter

Web-centric Cloud

  • Request driven, dynamic provisioning
  • Virtualized infrastructure for multiple workloads – massively scalable
  • Optimized for security, transactions, data integrity


Data Center

  • Dynamic information delivery
  • Accessed from anywhere
  • Shared, optimized for traffic, scalable
  • Mission critical transactions
  • Controlled access
  • Optimized for security and integrity

future directions dealing with multiple clouds
Future Directions: Dealing with Multiple Clouds
  • Programming models – making them mainstream
    • Transaction processing, etc.
  • Security
    • Ensuring proper levels of isolation and encrypted communication, in transition from completely isolated Clouds to public Clouds
  • Interoperability
    • Initially, Web Services/SOA and VM image standards
    • Moving applications from one Cloud to another
  • Management
    • Tracking processes/workflows that run across boundaries
