Women as Entrepreneurs presentation by Hannah Schwartz Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Hannah Schwartz- Ninefold WE WIN International Women’s Day 8 March 2012
  • 2. The Big Switch Rewiring the world- From generators to the power grid…- From private hardware, to online virtual computing
  • 3. Cloud Computing New business models, new innovations- A happy convergence of: o Open source technologies o Bandwidth (the internet and lots of it!) o Virtualization (virtual servers) o Social mediaEg: Groupon, Facebook, Crowdsourcing, Zynga
  • 4. Defining the Cloud Three common cloud terms- SaaS – Software as a Service- PaaS – Platform as a Service- IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service IaaS makes PaaS and SaaS possible!
  • 5. Defining the Cloud How do you benefit from cloud computing?- Self service compute and storage over the internet- Scalable on demand- Rapid provisioning, instantly available, swipe your credit card- Pay only for what you use- Minimal provider contact- Access to a large pool of compute resources- Opex vs. Capex
  • 6. What is Cloud Storage? The biggest growth area in cloud- Data storage- Business archiving, document sharing, remote access, backup- Strong consumer demand to store music/video/docs in the cloud Independent to cloud computing- No need to create virtual machines to access- Simple access-anywhere data storage in the cloudEg: Dropbox, Oxygen Cloud, AWS S3, Ninefold cloud storage
  • 7. Data Jurisdiction The complexities of offshore clouds- Continues to be a barrier to cloud adoption- Risk can be reduced with careful planning- Different jurisdictions have conflicting data privacy laws- Offshore hosting can multiply the risk of breaching one or more of these laws- Three factors involved - The location of the data centre - The location of your business - The location of the provider’s headquarters
  • 8. Ninefold – About Us Just who is Ninefold anyway?- Australian self-managed public cloud- Enterprise grade infrastructure backed by Macquarie Telecom- Pay only for what you use; swipe and go with a credit card- Targeting anyone requiring a self-managed cloud (cloud forward businesses)- Free multi channel support (Twitter, phone, email, chat)- Cloud storage (AWS S3 alternative), first in Australia- Low latency (faster speeds) and local data residency are key differentiators
