    • Cloud Computing?
    • Traditional server 1 server machine 1 application Virtualization Cloud Computing 1 server machine multiple virtual servers 1 application on each virtual server 1 cloud multiple virtual servers multiple applications & multiple networks multiple storage
    • Traditional server Individualized Virtualization management Cloud Computing Global management
    • Traditional server Pay per Virtualization machine Cloud Computing Pay as you go “only what you use & need”
    • Cloud Computing is a technology that allows converting IT infrastructure into a Service (IaaS)
    • Main Cloud advantages Faster Infinite time to scalability market Lower IT Business costs Agility
    • Let’s create a new service!!!!!!! “…For the new service we need: -Buy New Hardware -New software licenses -New network devices -Look for room in the DC -Backups -More power efficiency -Refrigeration -Train the team -Support 24x7 -Availability 99.99% …
    • Let’s create a new service!!!!!!! … and I want it done for TOMORROW!!!!!!!!
    • ...now let’s see how would be in Cloud... “…We hire Amazon, We pay for the time we use the servers, the bandwidth consumed and the public IP used.”
