Preface As communications and IT merge to create ICT, cloud computing is becoming a key strategic tool that allows service providers and enterprises to compete more efficiently and effectively. The advantages of cloud computing will only be fully realized, however, when the cloud computing solution supports all aspects of ICT, is fully open to provide future flexibility and is offered as a complete end-to-end solution.
1 Overview Cloud computing allows IT organizations and service providers to offer new consumption and delivery models for IT services. First developed for Internet-delivered services, cloud computing uses virtualized resources to allow services to be dynamically allocated and scaled based on the user’s actual requirements. This dynamic provisioning can also be used to create pay-as-you-use models for IT services, dramatically reducing costs and improving business flexibility.
Overview (cont) Key advantages of cloud computing include: ••Promotes resource reuse and allows energy conservation and pollution reduction. ••Improves working efficiency and reduces operation and maintenance costs. ••Enhances information monitoring and management, ensures data security. ••Fast deployment improves customer satisfaction.
2 Driving Forces of Cloud Computing Considerable unstructured data has emerged due to popularity of Web 2.0 and high-definition digital cameras, and higher requirements for 3D images, which has resulted in information explosion. Information explosion and Web 2.0 application are the two strong driving forces of the cloud computing development. 2.1 Driving force: Information Explosion Total data collected in Library of Congress of US covers 57 million scripts, 29 million books and magazines, and 12 million images. The amount of the global data generated in 2006 is 161 EB. If the data is printed on paper, the thickness is ten times the distance from the Earth to the Sun. The amount of the global data generated in 2007 is 280 EB. That is, each person generates an average of 45 GB data.
2 Driving Forces of Cloud Computing (cont.) The amount of the global data generated in 2008 is 540EB. That is, the data generated every day is 100 times the amount of the data collected by the Library of Congress of US in 200 years. The amount of the global data generated in 2009 is 800 EB. If the data is recorded on DVDs, the thickness of the total overlaid DVDs is the distance from the Earth to the Sun. IDC predicts that the amount of the global data in 2020 will reach 35 ZB, which will be 30 times the amount of the data generated in 2009. To process and store the rapidly increasing data, enterprises need to increase the size and complexity of their data centers. However, some problems, such as resource shortage, high power consumption, low-efficient operation and management, have become more serious and thereby hinder the enterprise development. Therefore, improving efficiency of operation and management and enhancing service creation capability have become major challenges to enterprises.
2.2 Driving Force: Web 2.0 Since the introduction of Web 2.0, the role of a user has changed from pure data consumer to information contributor. In addition, Web 2.0 has made the rich Internet application (RIA) a development trend of the network application. After the introduction of Web 2.0, people have changed their perception about software and software application modes. Change of the computing mode will bring many challenges such as: ••How to acquire considerable storage and computing resources ••How to operate services economically on the Internet ••How to make the Internet more agile and flexible ••How to enable enterprises and users to easily enjoy more new Services
3 Huawei Cloud Computing Strategy Huaweicloud computing strategy includes the following three parts: ••Developing SingleCLOUD platform: Construct a large platform to ensure resource sharing, energy saving, and environmental protection. ••Migrating telecom to cloud: Promote cloud application to services and applications to speed up informatization.Huawei will provide and deploy various ICT services in a uniform mode; implement resource sharing to enhance working efficiency and reduce costs. ••Building win-win ecosystem: Feature openness and cooperation attitudes that help to achieve a win-win result. Huawei will cooperate with partners to promote digitization of information and intelligence, thereby achieving a win-win result.
4 Huawei Cloud Computing Solution-SingleCLOUD Rapid Internet development has greatly promoted digitization of information and changed the application and management model of IT resources. The independent and distributed resources will be gradually changed to service resources with data centers as the bearer platform. Enterprises can lease high-efficiency and professional IT resources and value-added services from the data center. This helps enterprises to spend more time on their service creation and development. Huaweican provide E2E cloud solutions, including a series of facilities, cloud hardware platform, cloud platform management software and applications based on the platform. Huawei can also provides professional service and security management to help operator to simplify operation management and enhance the user experiment.
