  • Synopsis Cloud computing is an increasingly popular way to use computing and storage technologies, and it is changing the way businesses deliver services. As with any innovation, you have to adapt your methods and procedures to take full advantage of the new technology. This guide examines how cloud computing and the architecture of the Internet shape service delivery, the challenges presented to reaching a global customer base, and techniques for accelerating content delivery.

  • Cloud Computing and Challenges toDelivering Services Common Definition of the Cloud • Cloud computing is a model of delivering computing, storage, network and/or infrastructure in a shared manner that allows for on-demand scalability, self- service, and typically a pay-for-service pricing model. Preview
  • Cloud Computing and Challenges toDelivering Services Scalability • Scalability implies the ability to shift the amount of computing and storage as needed to meet current needs. For example, if a business experiences a spike in demand for one of its Web applications, the business might need to bring additional servers online to respond to all requests in an acceptable time. • In a cloud, these additional servers are already physically present in a data center. A cloud operating system (OS) is typically in place to deploy virtual images to additional servers and reconfigure load balancers, if required, to include the additional servers in an application cluster (see Figure 1.1). Preview
  • Cloud Computing and Challenges toDelivering Services Scalability • Storage services are treated in an analogous way in cloud computing. As more storage is required, it is allocated from a shared pool of storage resources. When it is no longer needed, storage is returned to the pool for others to use. Figure 1.1: Clouds provide for rapid scalability. Preview
  • Cloud Computing and Challenges toDelivering Services Self-Service • Prior to the advent of cloud computing, when an application administrator needed to scale computers to an application cluster or upgrade a server, it meant submitting requests to systems administrators and possibly provisioning additional hardware. Cloud computing platforms provide end users with the ability to provision servers and storage as needed through a cloud administration interface (see Figure 1.2).  Typically, these interfaces allow users to specify:  The size of virtual machines to deploy  The number of virtual machines  The location of the data center to deploy the virtual machines  The virtual image to deploy to each server Preview
  • Cloud Computing and Challenges toDelivering Services Self-Service • As clouds are virtualized computing resources, cloud providers can offer a wide range of machine configurations. For example, a small server might include 1 core, 2GB of memory, and 200GB of local storage, while a higher- end server might include 8 cores, 32GB of memory, and 1TB of local storage. Cloud users can choose the optimal configuration based on costs and requirements. CPU and memory-intensive applications might require a large and more costly server, while another application could be more cost effectively run on a number of low CPU/low memory virtual machines. • Cloud providers also maintain a catalog of virtual images. These can include a variety of OSs and preconfigured applications. If business analysts frequently work with a set of ad hoc reporting, statistical analysis, and visualization tools, the cloud provider can deploy a virtual image with these applications installed and configured so that they are readily available when needed.
