What is Cloud Cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over a network (typically the Internet). As a metaphor for the Internet, "the cloud" is a familiar cliché, but when combined with "computing," the meaning gets bigger and fuzzier. Some analysts and vendors define cloud computing narrowly as an updated version of utility computing: Basically virtual servers available over the Internet. Others go very broad, arguing anything you consume outside the firewall is "in the cloud," including conventional outsourcing.
Benefits of Cloud • Lower Costs - Cost savings that come with economy of scale • Scale as Needed – As your applications grow, you can add storage, RAM and CPU capacity as needed. • Cap-Ex Free Computing - cash flow by eliminating the capital expense associated with building the server infrastructure • Deploy Projects Faster - Because servers can be brought up & destroyed in a matter of minutes. • Lower Maintenance Costs driven by 2 factors: Less hardware and outsourced, shared IT staff.
Benefits of Cloud..contd. • Resiliency and Redundancy –you can get automatic failover between hardware platforms and disaster recovery services • Guaranteed "up time“ • Software upgrades are provided with no cost and avoids obsolescence • More available Capital to promote business growth At the heart of many of the benefits of the on-demand model is a key innovation—a multitenant architecture All users and applications share a single, common infrastructure down to the database level that is centrally maintained.

The Fear of Cloud 72% cited Security concerns 34% selected Integration issues 14% cited TCO 8% none of the above NONE TCO INTEGRATION SECURITYResults from 90 respondents, IDC online survey taken 25 June 2009, Webinar - Cloud ComputingSecurity: Protecting your Data in the CloudIBM Study
Fear of Cloud – Mitigated 72% cited security concerns Security of customer data has been the #1 priority of Saas companies today. Their systems are architected as a multi-tenant application that can securely store multiple customers data on a shared architecture - This is the same approach that consumer banking web sites have followed for the past 10 years. They maintain the highest security standards at three levels: Application Security, Facilities security & Network security 34 % selected Integration Issues Native connectors for SAP R/3 and Oracle 11i 32 certified integration middleware partners 300+ pre-built integrations to external web services on AppExchange Native connectors to desktop applications like MsOutlook, LotusNotes, Excel etc. 14% cited TCO Calculating an accurate TCO can also be a major challenge. Most of the TCO calculation do not factor in the value of opportunity cost (higher priorities for IT resources, cost of not upgrading, missing features, etc.) . An on demand system may be slightly more expensive than in-house over 5+ years. Regardless of which system may be cheaper, customers have found calculating ROI the best metric. When you take ROI, into consideration, cloud computing definitely has the upperhand.
