  • Poten4ally  :cking  all  the  boxes! Social  Inclusion ✔      Inherently  Green ✔ Reduces  Waste ✔        Socially  Beneficial ✔
  • Cloud  Mythology!! Cloud  Mythology  Imposes performance penalties over PCs  Security substantially downgraded  Needs large scale investment  Just the same as Grids  Just a fad!
  • The  mindset  change!  Networking will by-pass hoarding  Optimise everything for sharing  Make everything a resource  Let users decide  Influence is more important than power
  • Creativity is now at the edge, out of control, open, & distributed...
  • ~20 years of living on line….. …and now entering the workforce… - Any platform - Any OS - Any Application - An entirely different expectation!
  • And IT Dept’s then do this to them…
  • Time  and  technology  –  waits  for  no  man!                                                                          We  don’t  do  this  any  more    We  shouldn’t  be  doing  this!
  • If it is real it changes everything…

  • Here are the keys: - Reliability - Resilience - Connectivity - Efficiency - Energy - Openness - Mobility - Two-way Bandwidth
  • We  are  good  at  building  ultra-­‐reliable   systems  from  dirt  cheap  components! Unfortunately  the  same  cannot  be  said for  soXware  &  security....yet!
  • And  just  one  more  way  of  looking   at  The  Cloud…
