I'm Cloud Confused! I'm Cloud Confused! Presentation Transcript

  • I’m CloudConfused
    Demystifying Cloud Computing
  • What the say:
    “Biggest Paradigm Shift in 20 years”
    “Game Changers”
    “Just On”
    “Pay As You Go”
    “Tremendous Cost Cutting”
  • Describe The Cloud To Me
    The Cloud
    21 experts are defining cloud computing http://bit.ly/C6jIm

  • Who Cares?
    What is it for me?
    View slide
  • First,
    What the heck is
    Cloud Computing
    First, what the heck is
    Cloud Computing?
    …in simple, plain English please!
  • 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
    Pay property tax
    Hire Landscaper
    Water
    Electrician
    Electricity
    Plumber
    Heating and Cooling
    Gutter Cleaning
    House Keeping
  • How about 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, builders provide you with very 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?
  • As an end-consumer, believe it or not
    you’ve been using Cloudfor long times
  • Yes, most of them are
    Free
  • In return, you’re willing to give away
    your informationfor ads and other purposes
  • But you’ve been enjoying
    High Reliability Service
    (ok, ok, most of them are)
    Unlimited Storage
    Connecting, Sharing
  • OK, Now tell that to the business owner
    Give up your data, then
    you can use this infrastructure for free
  • This is how their CEO would feel
  • My Business Needs…
    Security
    Privacy
    Reliability
    High Availability
  • Building Enterprise
    Software
    is like….
    Building
    Medieval Castle
    Stone Wall
    Fire-proof
    Moat
    Army
    Death Hole
  • Let’s Hire an Army of IT Engineers
    Support
    Software Upgrade
    Backup/Restore
    Service Pack
    Development
    Network issues
  • Let’s Build
    Huge Data Center
    Capacity Planning
    Cooling Management
    Disaster Plan
    Server Crashes
  • In the mean time,…
    Many things have changed
  • The enterprise world we live in
    2010and beyond
    Global
    Direct, Open CustomersCommunication
    (Customers, Resources, IPs are acquired everywhere)
    (e.g. Social Media)
    Digital Life Convergence
    (Work and Personal lines are blurring)
    Work Remotely
    (Mobility Trend)
    Transparency
    Brief Collaboration
    (Blogs, Social Computing)
    (Assemble the best, Disassemble upon completion)
  • 2008-09
    Economy is upside down
    Layoffs
    Bankruptcy
    Excess Capacity
  • Can we bridgethe gap?
  • Requires
    aNew Way
    ofThinking
  • Cloud Computing
    is not
    answer
    the
    for all
  • But it could simplifyour lives….
  • Leave it the experts
    who have a lot of money to spend to build
    giantdatacenters across the globe
  • Your data is replicated
    3 or 4 times in their data center
    High Availability
  • High Traffic?
    Adding “servers” is a click away.
    Running in just minutes, not days
  • It can even load balance
    your server traffic
  • Expect your Cloud
    Network
    is always up
  • Yes, you can even pick
    whereyour data
    and “servers” reside
  • Business Contraction?
    Just reduce your
    computing power,storage
  • Wait,
    What is the catch?
  • Cloud Computing
    is relatively newtechnology
  • Growing Pains
    We all learn from it
  • Only a handful of major players
    can build
    this massive infrastructure
  • Not many software written yet to takeadvantage of cloudinfrastructure
  • Sensitive Data in the Cloud?
    are there yet?
    Encryption
    Data at Rest
    Data in Motion
  • Yes, you’re loosing some controls
    some configurations
    physical security
    only subset of APIs
  • Let’s clear common confusions
    about Cloud Computing
  • Who is paying whom?
  • Typical Scenarios
    Software/Service
    Providers
    Cloud/Infrastructure
    Provider
    You
    (Business, Individual)
    You may also build software
    directly on the provider’s platform and
    pay them directly
  • Do I have to start over?
  • In some cases,
    you could redirectyour data to the cloud
    Before
    Migrate Data to the Cloud
  • In some cases,
    you could redirectyour data to the cloud
    After
  • However, to take advantage fully, migrate all or create new apps on the cloud
    Employees
    Suppliers
    Customers
  • Is this just Hosting 2.0?
  • No, they have different architecturesand business model
    Cloud Players
    Hosting Players
    Hundreds of them around
    the world
    Only few can afford billions dollar
    investment on data centers
  • Your contracts
    Cloud Players
    Hosting Players
    Pay As You Go
    Often yearly
    Pay only what you use
  • Reliability, High Availability,
    Capacity Elasticity
    Cloud Players
    Hosting Players
    Bring your own or rent
    servers to increase capacity
    Virtually unlimited storage, computing power
    You have to manage
    reliability, fail over yourself
    Built-in Redundancy
  • The end of PC ?
  • NO
    Most cloud applications that will be built are
    accessible from PC.
    Applications can be a browser base, applicationrunning on PC accessing data and services on the cloud
    So will the mobile applications
