  • 3. Overview: What is Cloud Computing? Cloud Computing – Leveraging the Power of the Cloud!
    • Cloud Computing is a style of computing where dynamically scalable resources are virtualized and provided as a service over the internet to end users.
    • Users don't need to have the knowledge, expertise or control over the technology infrastructure in the "cloud" that supports them as many services are Hosted and maintained by Cloud Service Providers.
    • Cloud computing is the evolution of the widespread adoption of virtualization. Meaning many applications, software and hardware have been migrated to hosted solutions in the Cloud.
  • 4. Section 1 The Evolution of Cloud Computing
  • 5. The Evolution of Cloud Computing Cloud Computing – Leveraging the Power of the Cloud! The term “Cloud” - Refers to the Cloud Symbol that was used to denote the demarcation point from a customer’s network to their provider’s network J ohn McCarthy – “computation may someday be organized as a public utility.” Gartner Dataquest – “To shape the relationship among consumers of IT services” and observed that “Organizations are switching from company owned hardware and software assets to per-use service-based models”
  • 6. Section 2 How is Cloud Computing Being Used Today?
  • 7. How is Cloud Computing Being Used Today? Cloud Computing – Leveraging the Power of the Cloud! The major cloud service providers include Amazon, Salesforce, Microsoft and Google. Cloud Computing is also being used to deliver traditional applications such as SPAM Filtering, Anti-Virus, Mail Archiving and Backup.
  • 8. Section 3 Advantages and Disadvantages of Cloud Computing
  • 9. Advantages & Disadvantages of the Cloud Cloud Computing – Leveraging the Power of the Cloud! Cloud Computing offers a vast number of advantages over traditional delivery and management of Applications and Services – You Decide!
    • Ease of Deployment
    • Cost
    • Security
    • Infrastructure Requirements
    • Scalability
    • Reliability
  • 10. Advantages & Disadvantages - Detailed Cloud Computing – Leveraging the Power of the Cloud!
    • Ease of Deployment – Cloud Services are Easy to deploy and usually do not require the same amount of training as traditional Enterprise Solutions
    • Cost – Cloud Services turn Capital Expenditure into Operation Expenditure. This allows organizations to take advantage of newer technologies without the up front cost – a lower “Barrier to entry”
    • Security – This is a controversial topic in that some argue that Cloud Computing can allow a “loss of control” over certain sensitive data. In most cases the security is often as good or better than under traditional systems since providers devote resources to solving security issues that many users cannot afford
    • Infrastructure Requirements – The Cloud enables users to access systems and applications with minimal resources typically through a web browser
    • Scalability – Dynamic “On-Demand” provisioning afforded to Service Providers through virtualization, allows instant scalability
    • Reliability – Multiple Redundant Sites are usually used to make Cloud solutions suitable for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. Although these systems are not outage free and IT managers can at times do little to get systems back online
  • 11. Section 4 What are the Typical Costs?
  • 12. What are the Typical Costs? Cloud Computing – Leveraging the Power of the Cloud! Average Cost for Hosted Cloud Services:
    • Online Backup Solutions
    • Hosted End Point Protection
    • Hosted Email Exchange
    • Hosted Mail Security
    • Email Archiving
    • Email Encryption
  • 13. Section 5 How can we Train our Staff & End Users?
