  • 1. Private Cloud Architecture Moving Wits beyond the cutting edge Prof Derek W. Keats Deputy Vice Chancellor (Knowledge & Information Management) The University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg http://kim.wits.ac.za [email_address]
  • 2. Innovation Innovation Innovation driven Where are there opportunities to create synergy, leading to innovation? Process Technology Support (people)
  • 3. Risk without ecosystem Safe, proven, mature old technologies Mature but relatively new technologies We help to lead technology trends We create and use new technologies before anyone else Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Option 4 Option 5 The cutting edge
  • 4. Risk with ecosystem Safe, proven, mature old technologies Mature but relatively new technologies We help to lead technology trends We create and use new technologies before anyone else Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Option 4 Option 5 The cutting edge
  • 5. Capable of virtualization to run multiple systems and take advantage of better use of CPU cycles and storage Massive clusters of low cost commodity computers - Compute cloud (e.g. Amazon Elastic Cloud) - Data cloud (e.g. Amazon S3) - Public cloud - Private cloud

  • 10. Zimbra for eMail
    • Fully open source if using web client or POP/IMAP
    • 11. Commercial version enabling connection to
    • Need to cost commercial version

  • 15. Private cloud: specifications
    • Entire software stack is open source
    • 16. Management of the cloud must be via easy to use interfaces, and there should not be excessive systems administration costs
    • 17. Compute and storage systems must be fully scalable by adding additional elements
    • 18. There should be a capabilty to cost and charge for hosted virtualized systems
  • 19. Building our ecosystem
    • Identify key support people
    • 20. Where necessary, send them for training and collaboration building
      • e.g. Univ North Carolina (iRODS)
      • 21. e.g. Sun Microsystems (Cloud)
      • 22. e.g. DuraSpace (Fedora)
    • Collaboration with hardware vendor to innovate together
  • 23. Current status
    • High level design complete
    • 24. Teleconference with engineer and others from Sun microsystems to determine feasibility
    • 25. Compiling budgets
    • 26. Will hold a planning meeting with Sun soon
    • 27. Plan to have in place by mid-November
