  4. 4. What is Cloud Computing? ► 20+ working vendor-neutral definitions to be found ► 2 page definition National Institute of Standards and Technology http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/SNS/cloud-computing/  “Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This Cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics, three delivery models, and four deployment models.” ► Five Essential NIST Cloud Characteristics: 1. On-demand self-service 2. Ubiquitous network access 3. Location independent resource pooling 4. Rapid elasticity 5. Measured service.  Note: Cloud software takes full advantage of the Cloud paradigm by being service oriented with a focus on statelessness, low coupling, modularity, and semantic interoperability. 4

  6. 6. Cloud Macroeconomics ► First round winners: ► Hardware vendors; best global demand since 1990s ► Later rounds: ► Fewer buyers with high hardware demand can dictate technology and margins ► Commoditization of software and operating systems, shift to open source ► Software Business Model – tying to # of users of cores will be difficult, no up- front fees, no maintenance fees ► Usage based payment ► No user hardware investment or maintenance ► Possible user reduction of OS & Software licensing fees ► Developing economies will leapfrog 6

  8. 8. The Industry and Cloud Computing * * See page 22 for complete source information ► Worldwide Cloud Computing markets to reach $160.2 Billion by 2015 ► By 2012 Intel predicts that some 20 to 25 percent of its server chips will be dedicated toward data centers that power Cloud Computing. ► The federal government currently spends almost half of its $70 billion IT budget on infrastructure, costs that could be significantly reduced by shifting to software and infrastructure as a service. ► Clouds are here to stay …many research organizations will transition to private/public Cloud infrastructures for elasticity and cost-efficiency in their data analysis work. ► The Office of Management and Budget will unveil its storefront for Cloud Computing services in early September. Industry and government sources say federal chief information officer Vivek Kundra is eyeing Sept. 9 at the Gov 2.0 Summit in Washington as the public launch of one-stop shop for Cloud Computing services. 8

  10. 10. Cloud Computing: The Reality ► Federal agencies are confused about the Cloud:  IT managers do not share a common understanding of the technology  While 13% say their agency is using Cloud Computing: ► 44% report using database Cloud applications ► 42% report using document management Cloud applications ► 28% report running a virtualized server environment in house ► Federal IT executives report confusion over exactly what is and what is not Cloud Computing ► Federal agencies are not alone. Few industry organizations have moved beyond the Cloud discovery phase  IT managers in government and industry share the same Cloud forecast: ► 76% agree that the Cloud is “here to stay” ► 63% believe the Cloud is the “key to reducing IT expenses” ► This slide adapted from MeriTalk 2009 Cloud Consensus Report http://www.meritalk.com/2009-cloud-consensus.php 10
  11. 11. Why Would I Want to Use a Cloud? ► Cost and Sustainability ► Agility ► Ease of Use ► Reliability ► Scalability ► Location Independence ► Centralization ► Green ► Business Continuity/Availability ► Users will increasingly resist constraints on their use of technology 11
  12. 12. What Is Preventing Me From Using Cloud? ► Cloud IS NOT:  VIRTUALIZATION  Mature enough for enterprise deployment  Appropriate for all parts of all applications  An architecture (best practices for implementing and using technology resources)  A shortcut to avoid creating an architecture  A fix for architecture  A fix for security  Open and interoperable (at the moment) ► Technical  Porting legacy applications and databases is NOT trivial  Multi-tenancy  Metadata driven business logic  SOA ► Policy  Need to develop and baseline performance metrics and establish monitoring  Pay-as-you-go fees 12

  16. 16. Can the Cloud Be Secured? ► Network perimeter defense no longer applies ► Cloud Computing introduces a new set of security challenges ► Security strategy must account for all layers and tiers of the Cloud environment ► Employ defense in depth ► Don’t forget the basics! ► Must consider compliance issues (e.g., HIPAA) ► Issues to address:  Privileged user access  Regulatory Compliance  Data Location  Data Segregation  Long Term Viability  Recovery  Investigative Support 16
  17. 17. Example Cloud Operational Cost ► Amazon EC2 CPU pricing: Standard Instances Linux/UNIX Windows Small (Default) $0.10 per hour $0.125 per hour Large $0.40 per hour $0.50 per hour Extra Large $0.80 per hour $1.00 per hour High CPU Instances Linux/UNIX Windows Medium $0.20 per hour $0.30 per hour Extra Large $0.80 per hour $1.20 per hour ► Apptis Federal portal demonstration project initiated in November, 2008 ► Gained security concurrence on December 22, 2008 ► In January, 2009, a non-production stand-alone prototype portal overlaid onto a commercial Cloud provider, demonstrating that execution on a commercial Cloud environment without changes to the code base was possible ► Initial performance testing of the unmodified and un-tuned system with the minimum configuration of 8 CPUs achieved 2,600 concurrent users with 90 data element application registrations at a cost of $2.42 including software 17
  18. 18. How Should I Use the Cloud Today? ► Surge  Utilized when the IT infrastructure is not adequate to support an increase in demand or volumes  Removes the need to acquire IT infrastructure that sits idle or is under utilized ► Public Information  Static information that is accessible by the public, visible today but housed within the IT boundaries of the enterprise ► Test and Development Environments  Development Environments  Project Specific, Limited time use, Version control, Non production data  Test Environments  Availability, Stress and scale, Integration, Configuration Mgt ► Web Services ► Planning Disaster Recover and Continuity of Ops ► Encrypted Data storage 18
