  • How Your Business Can
    Take Advantage of
    Cloud Computing
    Cloud Computing
    Andy Harjanto
  • First,
    What the heck is
    Cloud Computing
    First, what the heck is
    Cloud Computing?
  • Let’s use a simple analogy
    Say you just moved to a city, and you’re looking for
    a place to live
  • You can either
    Builda house or
    Rentan apartment
  • If you builda house, there are a few
    important decisions you have to make…
  • Howbigis the house?
    are you planning to grow a large family?
    Remodel, addition typically cost a lot more once the house is built
  • But, you get a chance to customizeit
    flooring
    tile
    windows
    floor plan
    Roof
    lighting
    landscaping
  • Once the house is built,
    you’re responsible for maintenance
    Hire Landscaper
    Pay property tax
    Electrician
    Plumber
    Water
    Electricity
  • Let’s look at renting?
  • Consider a builder in your city builds
    a massivenumber of apartment units
  • A unit can easilybe converted
    into a 2,3,4 or more units
  • You make a fewer, simpler
    decisions
    You can start with one unit and grow later, or
    downsize
  • But…
    You do nothave
    a lot of options to
    customize your unit
  • triple pane windows
    green materials
    high capacity electricity
    high speed Internet
    However, this builder will provides you with
    high quality infrastructure
  • No need to worryabout maintenance cost
    No need to Hirelandscapers, electricians, plumbers
  • Pay as You Go
    Just pay your rent
    and utilities
  • Let’s translate to
    Cloud Computing?
  • Let’s Look At Life
    Without
    Cloud Computing
    aka Today
  • Typical IT Cost Structure
    Data Center
    Software License,
    Development,
    Maintenance
    IT Staff
    Support
  • As the business expands…
    …need to expand your data center too
  • But…
    Business Contraction Means….
    Increasingly Unused Computing Power
  • GlobalExpansion?
    Better start investing computinginfrastructure in that region
    (gov regulation,
    performance)
  • You are
    in full control over
    Applications
    Data
    Security
    Privacy
  • Typically, majority of cost structure isfromlabor cost (IT, Support)
    High Fixed Cost
  • Now,
    Let’s look what
    cloud computing
    could do for you
  • There are many services
    you can use for your IT needs
    Let’s look at 3 major services
  • Virtually UnlimitedComputing Power
    use only what you need
  • Example
    We can increasecomputing power from 2 units to N
    in minutes, with a simple configuration change.
    We can also decreaseit as quickly and easily too
  • Scenarios
    • Business Expansion
    • Traffic Spike because of Media Coverage
    • Short-term research
    • Business contraction
    Computing Elasticity
  • Typical Compute Pricing
    Per Hour (Elapsed Time)
    $0.10 - $1.00
    depends on server specifications
    Computer running 24 hour a day costs as low as $72/month
  • Virtually UnlimitedStorage
    For storing your documents, files
  • Example
    You canupload, downloadas many files as you want,
    deleteor backup unused files to reduce cost
  • Cloud Store
    Scenarios
    • File Sharing, Collaboration
    • Multimedia storage
    • Backup /Archival
  • Typical Cloud Storage Pricing
    Storing
    $0.15
    Per GB/Per Month
    Upload
    $0.10
    Per GB
    Download
    $0.15
    Per GB
  • Virtually Unlimited
    (Structured) Data
    databases
    updates
    queries
    transactions
    relational
    entity base
  • Example
    Create as many
    databases
    as you need
  • Cloud Data
    Scenarios
    • Running day-to-day business operations
    • Sales data
    • Customer data
    • Employee data
    • Inventory data
    • Large research
  • Typical Cloud Data Pricing
    Database Size
    $9
    1 GB/Per Month
    Others use per hour metering
  • There are a few more
    Cloud Services
    Queue
    private cloud
    Machine Image
    Web Services
    Federation
  • and you can pick and choose
    one or more cloud services
    Even you can mix
    the cloud providers
    Now, we’re cooking!
  • Your IT costs would likely to be
    mostly variable costs
    Storage
    BandwidthCompute
  • Talking to your cloud services
    HTTP REST
    JSON XML
    Typically done via standard, simple,
    modern protocols and formats
  • TypicalSLAs
    around
    99.95
    % uptime
  • Although data and computing are accessible everywhere
    You choose where they reside
  • But, in order to be flexible and elastic,
    the platforms on which you build applications
    have limited feature sets
  • Cloud providers would provide heavy lifting
    Server Crash
    Monitoring
    Data Replication
    Network Outage
    Catastrophic Events
  • All of these require
    MASSIVEdata centers and
    capital investments
    Easily measured in billions (US$)
  • Only a handful of major players
    can build the infrastructure
  • How My Business Can Take Advantage of
    Cloud Computing
  • If you can start over..
    The best model to put all services
    in the cloud
    Files
    Data
    Compute
    Clients
    Clients
  • You’ve seen this model
    works well many times before
    300 millions
    55 millions
    …and many others
  • 140 million daily status updates
    300 million users
    facebook
    70% users outside US
    14 million videos
    uploaded monthly
    2 billion pictures uploaded monthly
  • All of these are done with
    1
    engineer
    1
    million users
    ratio
    If we could be just 1% as efficient…
  • Of course, that’s not that easy
    You may already have millions lines of code
    that run your business
  • People try to put
    the puzzletogether
    Cloud Computing
    Traditional Software
  • Mix #1: Private Cloud
    Existing IT Infrastructure
    VPN
    Cloud
  • Mix #2: Hybrid Model
    Example, accessing cloud data from existing infrastructure
    Existing IT Infrastructure
    Data/Storage
    Cloud
    Computing/Applications
  • Does mix
    them together
    worth doing?
  • Now, it’s time to
    simplify
    your business
  • We’ve been on this road
    many times before
    It’s painful first,
    but at the end,
    we come ahead
  • Let’s look at a few examples
    down to
    memory lane
    Often simpler technology can
    compete and win against superior
    technology
  • User
    Interface
    1996
    Rich UI
    HTML
  • Protocol
    lightweightsimple
    heavy
    feature rich
    JSON REST SOAP
    CORBA DCOM RPC
  • Communication
    140 characters
    text message
    Email
  • How do I jump?
    Or Should I?
    this is the
    cloud platform
    this is your
    business
  • Second part of the presentation
    will address just that
    Simplifying Your Business
    On the Cloud
    http://www.slideshare.net/Guppers/10-simple-ways-to-simplify-your-business-on-the-cloud
  • …and address Elephantin the room too
    Security
    Privacy
    Identity
  • In Summary…
  • Cloud platform provides you with
    • Cost Elasticity
    • Power Elasticity
    • High Availability
    • Scalability
    • Global Ready
    • Long term Cost Reduction
