    9. 9. New Mexico Technology Council At last, the fossil evidence to prove our theory! The dinosaurs died off – not because of a meteor or climate change – but because their cloud computing platform collapsed!
    10. 10. The Cloud Players
    11. 11. Bare Metal People Process based hardware provisioning HaaS – Hardware as a Service Programmatic Interface for Hardware Provisioning PaaS – Platform as a Service (Hardware Provisioning Hidden – Automatic Scaling) SaaS – Software as a Service (Platform, Scaling and Hardware transparent) Flexibility of Offering Google Apps Increasing Virtualization Gmail Salesforce.com Amazon EC2/S3 Sun Caroline Force.com Google app engine Amazon Simple DB EDS (Infrastructure Outsourcing) In house hosted servers Cloud Player Market Analysis
    12. 12. Advantages of Cloud Computing <ul><li>Enterprise </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Acquire services versus buy & maintain gear (turn fixed costs into variable) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce dependence on IT professionals to maintain legacy infrastructure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enhance strategic focus </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Scale capacity on demand </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Always available </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce time to market </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Suppliers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Enables selling of turn-key, annuity-based services </li></ul></ul>
    13. 13. Cloud Computing Outlook <ul><li>Private clouds: insourcing of IT services via intranet – used by employees, customers & suppliers </li></ul><ul><li>Will leverage broadband and enable SaaS, social media, web 2.0 and mobility </li></ul><ul><li>Frame services – used in intuitive or automatic ways (e.g. search) </li></ul><ul><li>Border services – or on ramp – e.g. Right Scale assists with transition to Cloud </li></ul><ul><li>Add one more layer above the SaaS called Network Device Services </li></ul><ul><li>Providers who can evolve to repeatable and reliable services will thrive </li></ul>
    14. 14. <ul><li>“ there will be small number of big players and a large numbers of small players in the cloud computing space ” </li></ul><ul><li>– Dr. Eric Schmidt , CEO Google </li></ul><ul><li>“ we had enough complexity inside Amazon that we were finding we were spending too much time on fine-grained coordination between our network engineering groups and our applications programming groups. Basically what we decided to do is build a [set of APIs] between those two layers so that you could just do coarse-grained coordination between those two groups. Amazon is, you know, just a web-scale application. “ </li></ul><ul><li>- Jeff Bezos , CEO Amazon on “how did Amazon end up creating AWS leaving the big iron vendors behind” </li></ul><ul><li>The world needs only five computers. </li></ul><ul><li>- Thomas Watson , CEO IBM (1943) </li></ul><ul><li>- and then re-phrased by Greg Papadopoulos – CTO Sun Microsystems </li></ul><ul><li> “ there will be, more or less, five hyperscale, pan-global broadband computing services giants. There will be lots of regional players, of course; mostly, they will exist to meet national needs. That is, the network computing services business will look a lot like the energy business: a half-dozen global giants, a few dozen national and/or regional concerns, followed by wildcatters and specialists.” </li></ul>Cloud Computing Outlook
