  • 1. Crash Course in Cloud Computing
    Christian Miller & Jim DelRosso
    May 20, 2010
  • 2. What is it?
    “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.”
    -- Mell & Grance, 2009
  • 3. What is it?
    “[Cloud computing is] the delivery of scalable IT resources over the Internet, as opposed to hosting and operating those resources locally, such as on a college or university network.”
    -- EDUCAUSE, 2009
  • 4. What is it?
    Basic characteristics:
    • Users interact with resources remotely with few to no intermediaries
    • 5. Providers distribute resources dynamically to multiple users
    • 6. Resource use is flexible and scalable, and priced accordingly
  • What is it not?
    That SETI screensaver
    Pretty much any application that you have to install on your computer
    Arguably, many licensed products, even if they’re web-based
  • 7. What is it not?
    Outsourcing!
    (At least, not necessarily.)
  • 8. A final bit of jargon…
    Public vs. Private vs. Hybrid
