  • 2. Webcast Logistics No Sound? This is a streaming audio event. Make sure the sound on your PC is turned on. Questions? Type your questions using the Ask a Question Text Box Technical problems? Click the “Help” link below the media player.
  • 3. Our Distinguished Speakers John Foley, Editor, InformationWeek's PlugIntoTheCloud.com Michael Biddick , President & CTO, Fusion PPT David M. Powers, Associate Information Consultant at Eli Lilly and Company
  • 4. Portability In The Cloud John Foley, Editor InformationWeek PlugIntoTheCloud.com
  • 5. Portability/Interoperability • Ability to move data, applications, and virtual servers from one cloud computing environment to another • Ability to mix & match cloud services, depending on business need • Ability to blend public and private cloud environments into hybrids • Ability to develop to and manage cloud services via (industry standard?) APIs
  • 6. A busy year. Progress? • Feb.: Coghead closes • March: Open Cloud Manifesto vs. Microsoft • April: Open Cloud Standards Incubator (DMTF) • April: Java runtime for Google App Engine • July: Public API for Cloud Servers (Rackspace) • Sept.: Simple API for Cloud App Services (Zend, IBM, Microsoft, others) • Nov.: Virtual Computing Environment (Cisco, EMC, VMware) • Jan. 2010: Windows Azure
  • 7. Some companies are now storing hundreds of terabytes, even petabytes, of data in the cloud. “You are no longer portable, and you’re not going to be portable, so get over it.” Jason Offman, founder, CTO, Joyent
  • 8. POLL 1 What’s the status of cloud portability at your company? (Select one) We have the technologies/processes we need No hope--we’re locked in Developing a plan now
  • 9. Portability In The Cloud Michael Biddick , President & CTO Fusion PPT
  • 10. The Cloud Computing Craze • Marketing cloud computing has reached fever pitch in 2009, and there are no signs of slow- down in 2010 • More and more organizations are attracted to the notion of outsourcing their storage, processing and applications for a fraction of the cost of upgrading an entire data center • Some analysts say that more than half of all large enterprises have cloud computing in their plans, but only 2% are actually implementing. • There is a lot of trepidation especially on the part of government and larger organizations.
  • 11. Cloud Computing Options • Public clouds • Private clouds • Hybrid clouds • Community Co-op clouds
  • 12. Barriers to Cloud Adoption Security Privacy Portability, Interoperability
  • 13. Portability & Interoperability Questions • How do I integrate computer, network, and storage services from one or more cloud service providers into my business and IT processes? • How do I manage security and business continuity risk across several cloud providers? • How do I manage the lifecycle of a service in a distributed multiple-provider environment in order to satisfy service-level agreements (SLAs) with my customers? • How do I maintain effective governance and audit processes across integrated datacenters and cloud providers? • How do I adopt or switch to a new cloud provider?
  • 14. Why We Need Portability • Dissatisfaction with a cloud service provider, • New and better alternatives, • Change in strategy • Failure of a provider: The issue hit home earlier this year when cloud startup Coghead shut down and SAP took over only its assets and engineering team, forcing customers to find a new home for the applications that had been hosted there.
  • 15. Reasons to Change Cloud Providers Bankruptcy, a buy-out, a dissolution, the network service dissolving, the network service terminated, the network service terminating, the network service dissolving, filing bankruptcy, a closing, a shutdown, a strike, a buyout, the network service ceases to exist, a planned dissolution, a termination of services based on geography, a re-structuring, a user wanting a cheaper rate, a user desiring a better service, a machine deterioration, a virus infections, and a replacement of at least one of a machine and a service…
  • 16. Data Migration • Getting started in the cloud may be fast, cheap, and easy, but the longer you're there, the harder it is to move. • As data accumulates, IT needs to monitor not just what it's spending on cloud storage, but also how big the tab to get out is. • Price out an exit plan.
  • 17. Data Migration • It can take weeks or months to move a petabyte of data from one cloud to another, depending on data transfer speeds • Amazon charges 10 cents per gigabyte to transfer data out of S3, which comes to $100,000 per petabyte. (That's after you've already spent $100,000 or more in transfer fees moving the data into S3.) • Amazon estimates it would take one to two days to import or export 5 TB of data over a 100-Mbps connection.
  • 18. Strategies Around Portability & Interop. APIs Cloud Brokers Emerging Standards
  • 19. APIs • Many different APIs exist for public clouds including • APIs are critical • APIs serve as the foundation for clouds, however, are still mostly unique to the specific cloud provider
  • 20. Cloud Brokers • A cloud broker is a cloud that provides services to cloud consumers but might not host any of its own resources. • Brokers federate resources from different clouds making them available transparently to cloud consumers. • Cloud consumers interact only with the broker cloud when requesting services, even though the delivered services come from other clouds.
  • 21. Emerging Standards • Cloud Security Alliance http://www.cloudsecurityalliance.org/ • Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) http://www.dmtf.org/ • The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) http://www.etsi.org/ • National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/SNS/cloud-computing/index.html • Open Grid Forum (OGF) http://www.ogf.org/ • Object Management Group (OMG) http://www.ogf.org/ • Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) http://www.snia.org/home • Open Cloud Consortium (OCC) http://www.opencloudconsortium.org/ • Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) http://www.oasis-open.org/ • The Open Group: http://www.opengroup.org/cloudcomputing/
