  • I&#x2019;m going to define some things. <br />
  • When I explain cloud computing to someone, I ask them where their mail is stored. They say something like &#x201C;in the cloud.&#x201D; That&#x2019;s a useless definition, because it&#x2019;s synonymous with &#x201C;web&#x201D; and &#x201C;internet.&#x201D; But outside of this room, most people think it means this. <br />

  • That&#x2019;s ignoring the conversation I had at the airport. <br />
  • But let&#x2019;s talk about the technical definition. <br />
  • The step-function nature of dedicated machines doesn&#x2019;t distribute workload very efficiently. <br />
  • Virtualization lets us put many workloads on a single machine <br />
  • Once workloads are virtualized, several things happen. First, they&#x2019;re portable <br />
  • Second, they&#x2019;re ephemeral. That is, they&#x2019;re short-lived: Once people realize that they don&#x2019;t have to hoard machines, they spin them up and down a lot more. <br />
  • Which inevitably leads to automation and scripting: We need to spin up and down machines, and move them from place to place. This is hard, error-prone work for humans, but perfect for automation now that rack-and-stack has been replaced by point-and-click <br />
  • Automation, once in place, can have a front end put on it. That leads to self service. <br />
  • ATMs and expectations <br />

  • The move towards the cloud business model has a lot to do with the economies of scale that exist when you can concentrate infrastructure, and put it near dams. <br />

  • Because anyone can now launch sophisticated IT systems with a credit card and a personal email address, this doesn&#x2019;t work any more. <br />
  • These days, supercomputing is easier (and cheaper) than booking a flight. <br />
  • But despite the title of Nick Carr&#x2019;s book, the move to more efficient computing isn&#x2019;t a Big Switch at all <br /> (emphasize that it&apos;s not a sudden transition, but rather a move to elastic, ubiquitous computing) <br />
  • It&#x2019;s not a matter of flipping a switch and magically moving to some new compute platform <br />
  • It&#x2019;s more of a spectrum. <br />
  • A spectrum of clouds(from automated bare metal, through hybrid, IaaS, and PaaS) <br />
