  1. 1. Cloud Computing?
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. Traditional server Individualized Virtualization management Cloud Computing Global management
  4. 4. Traditional server Pay per Virtualization machine Cloud Computing Pay as you go “only what you use & need”
  5. 5. Cloud Computing is a technology that allows converting IT infrastructure into a Service (IaaS)
  6. 6. Main Cloud advantages Faster Infinite time to scalability market Lower IT Business costs Agility
  7. 7. 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% …
  8. 8. Let’s create a new service!!!!!!! … and I want it done for TOMORROW!!!!!!!!
