    How Your Business Can Take Advantage Of Cloud Computing How Your Business Can Take Advantage Of Cloud Computing Presentation Transcript

    • 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
