  1. Corey Rutledge Spencer Peaty Group 4 – IT Seminar Cloud Computing

  2. Cloud Computing Roots • Founding Father • John McCarthy in the early 1960’s • “Computation may someday be organized as a public utility.” • Douglass Parkhill – 1966 • Published The Challenge of the Computer Utility • Explored the comparison of the “cloud” concept to the electricity industry.

  3. Cloud Computing Modernized Roots • Where did the term “cloud” originate? • Telecommunications Industry in 1990 • Switched from point-to-point to a virtual private network (VPN) • Increased bandwidth utilization • RamnathChellapa • Coined “cloud computing” in 1997 • Cloud Computing Modernized • Amazon • Launched Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2006 • Google & IBM • Launched Eucalyptus in 2008. • First open-source cloud platform • RESERVIOR (European Research Team) • Launched OpenNebula later in 2008

  4. “Cloud computing comes into focus only when you think about what IT always needs: a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. Cloud computing encompasses any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, in real time over the Internet, extends IT's existing capabilities” • Galen Gruman

  5. What Is Cloud Computing • Paradigm Shift in IT Management • Open-Source System Architecture • Infrastructure • Platform • Applications • Cluster of Virtual Servers

  6. Different “Cloud” Concepts • Software as a Service (SaaS) • Single application to multiple users • No upfront investment for users • Low costs for hosts • Utility Computing • Computing available when needed • Billed based on usage • Managed Service Providers (MSP) • Remote IT services

  7. Benefits of Cloud Computing • Flexibility • Agility • Speed of technology advancements • Cost Management • Low capital investments • Residual effects • Staff re-allocation • Capacity on Demand • Efficient use
