THE CLOUD made easy

What it is, how you can use it and some of the best Cloud apps and services.

slide2

In a short span of time, cloud computing has changed the way in which businesses and individuals consume computing resources.

slide3

PREDICTIONS

In 2009 Juniper Research predicted that the total market for cloud-based mobile applications will rise from a little more than $400 million in 2009 to nearly $9.5 billion by 2014, at an average annual increase of 88%.

slide4

PREDICTIONS

In 2011 Forrester Research predicted that the global market for cloud computing will rise from about $41 billion in 2011 to $241 billion by 2020.

slide5

WHAT IS “THE CLOUD”?

AND WHY IS IT CALLED "THE CLOUD"?

It’s all because the guys that build computer networks find it easier to draw a cloud to represent all the connections that make up the Internet

The “cloud” is a word referring to all the hundreds of Internet connections involved in sending your emails, for example. Put simply, your email goes through a “cloud” of multiple Internet connections.

As the Internet grew, all the connections on the Internet became known as the “cloud”.

slide6

THE CLOUD GETS CLEVER…

OR WHAT IS CLOUD COMPUTING”?

Techies realized that they could do more than just provide connections in the cloud, they could actually hook up big computers with super computing power in the cloud and share these big computers with lots of people. With this idea, cloud computing was born.

Think of cloud computing as literally a giant computer that you can access on the Internet. So now in addition to your personal computers, with cloud computing you now have another big computer in the cloud.

slide7

SUMMARY

The Cloud is a term for describing ways of using the Internet to plug into the collective power of hundreds or thousands of computers and turning your own home computer, laptop or smartphone into a doorway to a massive supercomputer that is at your beck and call 24 hours a day and quite often even for free.

Cloud computing is the ability to employ a number of computers, hardware, software, and servers to serve your computing needs remotely without actually owning or running the software and hardware.

BENEFITS OF CLOUD COMPUTING

GOOGLE DOCS

OR MICROSOFT POWERPOINT WEB APP

slide9

BENEFITS OF CLOUD COMPUTING

  • MUCH CHEAPER than buying all that extra hardware and software (Adobe)
  • REMOTE ACCESS – you can access and update information wherever you are, from your laptop, your smartphone or even someone else’s desktop or laptop, rather than having to run back to the office
  • INSTANTLY SCALEABLE – more computers can be added to or removed from the cloud at any time so there are virtually unlimited processing capabilities to any user that wants to use cloud computing
  • FLEXIBLE - you can use as much or as little space as you need and not have to fill up your own hard drives
  • COLLABORATION – you can collaborate on documents or projects with others from anywhere in the world
  • AUTOMATIC UPDATES – no need to worry about paying for future software and hardware updates
  • DISASTER RELIEF – when your hard drive dies or you get a virus or theft or natural disaster, you can still access your apps and all your data, and your backups from the Cloud
  • EASE OF IMPLEMENTATION – usually very quick and easy to sign up for
  • EVENS THE PLAYING FIELD FOR SMALL BUSINESSES - your small business can utilize the same tools that Fortune 100 companies use and you will only pay for what you need
slide10

WHAT ABOUT SECURITY?

  • CHECK THE FAQs when considering a Cloud app
  • “Your files are actually safer while stored in your Dropbox than on your computer in some cases. We use the same secure methods as banks.
  • Dropbox takes the security of your files and of our software very seriously. We use the best tools and engineering practices available to build our software, and we have smart people making sure that Dropbox remains secure. Your files are backed-up, stored securely, and password-protected via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and AES-256 bit encryption. Dropbox uses Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3) for storage, which has a robust security policy of its own.”
  • Supporters also argue that, essentially, most office-based PCs are Internet connected, so in theory they’re no more exposed when using the cloud. And some would argue that by using cloud technology, businesses are passing their data to experts that are also experts in protecting it, instead of an on-site machine that might be out-of-date and potentially at risk of attack.
slide11

WHAT ABOUT SECURITY?

  • MANY CLOUD SECURITY FIRMS arespringing up to add extra layers of security for cloud computing companies
  • “In a few years, no-one will consider how secure cloud computing is because there will be few alternatives.” Nick Marshall, Giacom World Networks
  • Good idea to not rely only on Cloud for storing your data - have a local version as well - e.g. Gmail and Gdocs (use GooBackup for hard drive storage or on another Cloud service). Dropbox has this double-location safety automatically.
  • Intel, McAfee promoting Dynamic Plan
  • for securing the Cloud.
slide12

slide13

EXAMPLES OF CLOUD COMPUTING

  • LARGE COMPANY EXAMPLES
  • YouTube - the simultaneous streaming and uploading of millions of files by millions of users with minimal glitches takes massive, well-supported resources.
  • Facebookand Twitter also use cloud computing to serve millions of users at once.
  • Huluand Netflix offer instant streaming of movie content to personal computers and HD televisions on-demand, without users needing to purchase additional software or hardware.
  • Livestream is completely serverless. It offers video streaming, yet does not own a single server. It rents cloud computing capabilities like a utility.
  • Amazon – giant cloud mall.
