  • Flexibililty gives users virtually unlimited pay per use computing resources without the burden of managing the underlying infrastructure.
    Cloud takes away the need to fund the building of hardware, installing software, or paying dedicated software license fees.
    Cloud enables businesses — not just IT operations — to add or provision computing resources just at the time they’re needed
    A good example is Netflix as Netflix began to outgrow its data center capabilities, the company made a decision to migrate its Website and streaming service from a traditional data center implementation to a cloud environment. This move allowed the company to grow and expand its customer base without having to build and support a data center footprint to meet its growth requirements.”
    Without having to make the investment in the direct costs that accompany running a server: power, floor space, storage, and IT operations to manage those resources, the indirect costs of running a server: network and storage infrastructure and IT operations to manage the general infrastructure and the overhead costs of owning a server: procurement and accounting personnel, not to mention a critical resource in short supply: IT management and its attention.Cloud computing had become much more attractive



  • Public Cloud-A public cloud is a set of computers and computer network resources in which a service provider makes these resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over the Internet[1] . Public cloud services may be free or offered on a pay-per-usage model.[2]
    Applications, storage, and other resources are made available to the general public by a service provider. There are service providers like Amazon, Microsoft, Google or Rackspace who own all infrastructure at their data center
    Private Cloud- Typically hosted on the Enterprise premise. Connected primarily to the using organization through private network links. The applications in this environment typically support the end-users of that organization.
    Community Clouds-Often refered to as the vertical cloud. It caters to a group of organizations with a common set of requirements or objectives. The most prominent examples are government clouds that are open to the federal government or municipal agencies. Education. They provide the incentive to work together to leverage common resources.
    Hybrid Cloud-The most likely end-point for many enterprises. It is not uncommon to find small start-ups today that are fully committed to cloud computing for all their service requirements. Large organizations on the other hand have been very cautious even if they recognize the value cloud computing can bring to them for a variety or reasons. More complex environments
  • Software as a service- Salesforce.com represents one of the best known examples. Allows tenants to share the entire software stack.

    Platform as a service-Google App Engine generally considered to be a platform as a service. Allows tenants to share the same operating system and application frameworks.
    Infrastructure as a service- Amazon Elastic cloud compute (EC2), Rackspace are classic examples . Allows tenants to share the same physical hardware.
  • Different flavors of DSL, SDSL, VDSL
  • Connecting to the Cloud

    1. 1. Connecting to the CLOUD
    2. 2. Cloud Computing Benefits Open poll question on LinkedIn, “How do you transfer data to and from your data center applications/resources?” Audience: ITPofessional private and public sector Almost a thousand responses (976) in two weeks Dark Fiber • Flexibility to choose multiple vendors for On Demand Self Service • Rapid deployment of new business services via Broad Network Access • Reduced costs due to Resource Pooling • Rapid Elasticity: Rapidly allocate and de-allocate massively scalable resources on a demand basis • Save CapEx move into OpEx with Measured Service
    3. 3. Cloud Carrier Models • Public cloud: Available to the general public (e.g. Internet) • Private cloud: Operated solely for an organization (Comcast EPL, ENS) •Better security •More control •Better performance •Better reliability • Community cloud: Supports a specific community (e.g. Internet2) • Hybrid cloud: Composed of two or more clouds (Private + Internet VPN) • Many companies start with the public cloud and move to the hybrid cloud
    4. 4. How do you connect to the Cloud? Essential Characteristics Service Models Deployment Models
    5. 5. How Do You Connect to the Cloud? Dark Fiber • ADSL- Asymmetrical bandwidth with distance of up to 18,000 feet over single copper twisted pair. New Technology enhancement allow increased upload and download speeds. Higher Bandwidth, lower reliability, cost effective, best effort service. Small to Medium Business
    6. 6. How Do You Connect to the Cloud? Internet: 38% Surprise considering that for latency intolerant- applications hosted in data centers, Ethernet is used. Stefan Pittinger, VP of Sales for Peak 10 a multi- tenant data center provider says, “For every rack we sell, there is a corresponding Ethernet circuit connected it.” Cloud has had a big head start – no direct connect options until recently. • Cable Modem- Asymmetrical bandwidth with no distance limitations. DOCSIC 3.0 allows increased upload and download speeds. High Bandwidth, Cost effective, best effort service. Small to Medium Business
    7. 7. How Do You Connect to Cloud? T1: 30% Compared to the Internet: reliable and highly secure Downside: Low capacity and lack of scalability IBM: 90% of the all the data in the world was created in the last 2 years. - You need an elastic network T1 most likely technology to be swapped out • Legacy Technologies- T1-1.544, T3-45MB -Limited bandwidth, expensive, reliable. Small, Medium and Enterprise Business
    8. 8. How Do You Connect to the Cloud? Dark Fiber: 13% Low price per Megabit cost Scalable and secure Drawback: You have to be your own service provider. Retired Naval Officer, technology consultant and writer Wayne Rash: .” • Metro Ethernet- High bandwidth, cost effective, reliable, scalable, ubiquitous. Medium and Enterprise Business Ethernet Cloud Carrier(s) Ethernet Cloud Carrier(s) Cloud Consumers Cloud Service Provider to Cloud Customer Cloud Service Provider(s) Cloud Service Provider(s) Data Center Interconnectivity
    9. 9. You Need a Network Built to Handle Those Demands Traditional Technologies Just Weren’t Built with Today’s Environment in Mind You Need To Keep Costs Down You can’t afford to make major investments in your network every time your business changes You Need Performance Traditional technologies like T1 and Frame Relay provide limited bandwidth, constraining application performance You Need Scalability Network traffic is exploding, yet the time and resources required to expand in a T1 environment are too great
