Cloud Camp Sydney 2011 v2AU cloud providers vs the world!
What is a cloud? Defined by business benefits.. Pay per use = no upfront payment, pay for what you’ve actually used Fast on-demand setup = Innovate faster, be more agile Self service – Empower users, don’t wait for ‘support’ Scalability = Unlimited resources, unlocks new use cases Reduce Costs Innovate Faster Simplify IT
What types of clouds exist today?Software-as-a-Service Platform-as-a-Service Infrastructure-as-a- (SaaS) (PaaS) Service (IaaS)
Demand Drivers NewIT departments Concerns about procurement Private clouds SMEs, as well will shrink as information will be replaced provide as large users go security will with cloud security and Quality is the enterprises, directly to the reduce as CIOs solutions backup to Priority will be run on cloud for IT understand the ($100m pa in public cloud the cloud resources cloud Australia solutions alone)
Cloud Landscape – Webscale Cloud Webscale Clouds International: AWS, Rackspace, Korea Telecom AU: CloudCentral, Ninefold, OrionVM Typically Xen based (lower cost) Typically fast, automated provisioning 4-8x lower cost than ‘Enterprise Cloud’ Best suited to ‘web scale’ and ‘green field’ apps Higher growth than Legacy / Enterprise Cloud Typically, dynamic, ‘peaky’ usage profile
Cloud Landscape – Enterprise / Legacy Cloud Legacy / Enterprise Clouds AU: Telstra, BrennanIT, Harbour, etc Typically VCE based (higher cost) Typically slower, non-automated provisioning 4-8x higher cost than ‘Webscale’ cloud Best suited to legacy applications / highly specialized configurations Lower growth than Webscale clouds Typically steady-state usage profile
Key Considerations for Choosing a Cloud Provider Thought Innovation / Leadership Geographical Location Functionality Service / Support Community / Ecosystem Reliability, Availability, Serviceability (RAS) Service Level Agreement (SLA) Specialization / Differentiation Cost / Value
Can Australian Cloud Providers Survive? Thought Innovation / Leadership – Yes, CloudCentral / OpenStack – OrionVM Storage performance, etc Geographical Location – Yes, local providers in various AU data centres Functionality – Yes, via CloudStack / OpenStack / Custom Platforms Service / Support – Yes, local support from people who speak “Australian” Community / Ecosystem – Yes, participation in local cloud events, integration into OpenStack ecosystem Specialization / Differentiation – Yes, local geo clouds, vertical clouds, etc Cost / Value – it is possible to compete on price, “enough” scale is not hard Patriotism – Australian business prefer to buy from other AU businesses
