Cloud Computing Impact

  1. 1. CLOUD COMPUTING IMPACT How will the cloud approach change the game Jesus Villar, jesus at virttoo.org
  2. 2. CONTENTS • What? • Why? • Effect. • Conclusion.
  3. 3. CLOUD COMPUTING The buzzword itself in 2009!
  4. 4. THE OTHER BUZZWORDS • Cloud computing is just one approach • Though, there are more to go: • SaaS, PaaS, XaaS • Webservices • etc.
  5. 5. WHAT IS CLOUD COMPUTING?! "Clouds are hardware-based services, offering compute, network and storage capacity where: 1.Hardware management is highly abstracted from the buyer 2.Buyers incur infrastructure costs as variable OPEX 3.Infrastructure capacity is highly elastic (up or down)" Source: McKinsey&Comp
  6. 6. CLOUD CHARACTERISTICS What do the NIST Guys tell us: • Broad network access • Resource pooling On demand self-service • Rapid elasticity • Measured service • On demand self-service Source: The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing
  7. 7. LETS TAKE A CLOSER LOOK On demand self-service: "A consumer can unilaterally provision computing capabilities such as server time and network storage, as needed automatically without requiring human interaction with each service’s provider."
  8. 8. THE PROMISE IT consumption as easy as energy consumption
  9. 9. LET'S COMPARE In the early industrialisation phase all factorys generated their required electricity by themselfs. And today?
  10. 10. ELECTRICITY TODAY? • Its just there. • Always available. • Instantly usable. • Its method of production has no relevance for us. (* except green electricity relevance, etc.)
  11. 11. THE SAME PROMISE FOR OUR TECHNOLOGY WORLD?
  12. 12. SO WHAT, EVERYTHING IS COOL? Way to go: Standards are more important than ever!
  13. 13. SO WHAT, EVERYTHING IS COOL? More to go... Sometimes you want to know where your data is stored?
  14. 14. WHAT ABOUT US?!
  15. 15. THE EVOLUTION IS ONGOING • Accept that you can't control everything! • Learn managing instead of administrating your workset • Partner with your users/customers. • Focus on convention over configuration! • Make friends with KPIs, SLA and efficient orchestrating!
  16. 16. WHAT IS CHANGING THE WORLD? • Your users are used to eperience performance in satisfing their demands! • Why? Say thank you to those guys: * • Your customers are used to have instant access to information *and of course many more...
  17. 17. THREATS • Cloud computing will be a Oligopole business • The bigger you are the better your ecomony of scale will be • Ifthere are just a limited set of providers, only limited competition may be achieved. Image: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hrefnabjorg/3906280271/
  18. 18. CHANCES THE MARKET IS STILL GROWING Specialized providers Focused on security and respecting local laws Offering sustainable SLAs
