    • Architecture definition is a process IaaS Cloud Define target workloads Determine how that workload will be delivered reliably Determine the necessary functionality and performance Develop your technical architecture Implement your environment
    • Workload categories give us a starting point Traditional Enterprise Applications Software Disaster Development, Recovery Testing and Maintenance Social Media Managed IT Applications Services High Performance Batch processing Computing22
    • Possible to categorize workloads into two sets Cloud Workloads Traditional Workload Cloud Workload Reliable hardware, backup entire Tell users to expect failure. cloud, and restore for users when Users to build apps that can failure happens withstand infrastructure failure Both types of workloads must run reliably in the cloud
    • Cloud Transition – General to Workload specific Past Today General Traditional-Style Amazon-Style Architecture• General architecture for any • Workload-centric architecture workload • Workload-specific failure/disaster• Limited definitive failure/disaster recovery recovery strategy • Separate legacy and cloud app• Focused on legacy or cloud app architectures with interoperability architectures
    • Support for different styles is required CloudStack Mgmt. Server Server Virtualization Availability Zone vCenter Enterprise Networking (e.g., VLAN)Availability Availability Availability Zone Zone Zone ESXi ESXi ESXi Cluster Cluster Cluster Object Storage Enterprise Storage (e.g., SAN)
