Pragmatic Cloud Management Pragmatic Cloud Management Presentation Transcript

  • Pragmatic Cloud Management Michael Coté, RedMonk
  • conclusions • Cloud is an operations innovation, but still new • Strategically consider uses of cloud computing • Safety nets make high wire acts possible
  • what is a cloud? • SaaS, PaaS, IaaS • Public cloud - IT over the Internet • Private cloud - applying cloud technologies behind the firewall * Chris Hoff
  • things to point at • IaaS - Amazon EC2, S3, etc. • PaaS - Force.com, Microsoft Azure, IPP • Sun Cloud, Eucalytpus, Rackspace, & reborn hosters & HPC • Automation & provisioning people
  • why bother? • Cost - for some services • Make customers smile - pro-active service delivery • Scale & grid - if that’s a problem • The boss says so
  • make the money smile “If I told the board that I all I needed to really improve the business was to rack another $5M of servers, I’d have the money tomorrow.”
  • operations concerns - public • The usual FUD - regulations, compliance, security • Remote access, instrumentation - providers may not understand/believe your needs • Costs - make sure it stays cheap • SLAs & incident resolution plans - the finger still points at you • Good, old fashioned release & change management
  • operations concerns - private • Configuration/asset management a chief concern • Monitoring sloppy infrastructure • Virtualization concerns • Continual (process) improvement
  • operations concerns • Cloud means more discipline, not less • Flexibility of tools • Embracing an Agile culture, hug your dev • Cost balancing and capacity management
  • starting a cloud strategy • Start small & build on success • Find the middle-priority • Focus on proactive service delivery, cost as side-effect • Look to tools that support cloud infrastructure • The goal: making customers happy
