Cloud Computing Cloud Computing Presentation Transcript

  • Cloud Computing
    • The Evolution of Internet Infrastructure
    • Ed Byrne - 2008
    • [email_address]
  • Overview
    • Components of Internet Infrastructure
    • Trends in Internet Infrastructure
    • Introduction to Cloud Computing
    • 3 Levels of Cloud Computing
    • Challenges of Cloud Computing
    • Wrap-Up : About Hosting365
  • Components of Internet Infrastructure
    • ‘ Internet Infrastructure is what makes the Internet go’
    • Data Centres
    • Network
    • Computer Equipment
    • Storage Services
    • Application Layer
  • Trends in Internet Infrastructure
    • Data Centres :-
      • Massive Build Cost.
      • Increasing Capacity Requirements.
      • Environmental Issues.
      • Energy Concerns.
      • Huge Increase is DC Demand due to Internet Growth and move of Office IT to Hosted Model.
    • Computer Equipment (Servers) :-
      • Smaller and more Powerful.
      • Higher Power Density and more Cooling required.
      • Low Utilisation of Dedicated Equipment.
      • Ability to Remotely Monitor & Manage Equipment.
    Trends in Internet Infrastructure
  • Trends in Internet Infrastructure
    • Storage Services :-
      • Cost per MB went to cost per GB. Now cost per TB.
      • Price of storage dropping continuously.
      • Growth is storage requirements outpacing pricing.
      • Speed of Storage Connectivity allowing more creative ways to manage and provision GB’s.
      • Solid State SANs. Storage Virtualisation.
  • Trends in Internet Infrastructure
    • Application Layer :-
      • Virtualisation
        • Maximises Server and Storage Utilisation.
        • Lowers Carbon Footprint.
        • Improves Manageability of Infrastructure Architecture.
  • Introduction to Cloud Computing
    • Not to be confused with : Grid Computing or Utility Computing.
    • At Hosting365, we define Cloud Computing as:
      • Level 1: Not reliant on single hardware components for operation.
      • Level 2: Independent of single Data Centre facility.
      • Level 3: Platform agnostic application delivery.
  • Why Cloud Computing?
    • Scalable.
    • Flexible.
    • Reliable.
    • Fast Setup.
    • Affordable Enterprise Solution.
    • Environmentally More Efficient (Friendly).
  • Cloud Computing : Level 1
    • Dumb Server Deployment
      • H365: 128 Blade Servers in 6 Enclosures.
      • H365: RAM + Processors only. Virtual Connect modules.
    • Storage Area Network
      • H365: 21 TB SAN, trays populated with 146 GB 15krpm drives.
      • H365: Fibre Channel connected controllers to blade enclosures.
    • Intelligent Management of Infrastructure
      • Blade Management Console.
      • Virtualised Platform Management.
      • VMware for Servers. IBM SVC for Storage.
    • Result: Hardware Independence.
      • Single components can fail with minor service interruption. Extremely price attractive for this level of High Availability.
  • Cloud Computing : Level 2
    • Independent of the Data Centre
    • Level 1 + Second (or more) Data Centre.
    • Replication to DC-2 of Storage Services (sync, a-sync, pit)
    • Duplication of OS Environment (image based, can be live geo-DNS, near-live replication, or config-snapshot)
    • Cost dependent of level of tolerance for fail-over.
  • Cloud Computing : Level 3
    • Platform Agnostic Application Delivery
    • Forget the DC. Forget the Service Provider.
    • Standardise on Server Image and Storage Service.
    • Utilise Cross-Platform ‘Cloud APIs’. Utilise Cloud based DNS.
    • Manage Environment using Monitoring Tool for Service Providers and live-select provider.
      • Manage based on Uptime, Price, Speed, Requirements.
    • H365 Solution: NetOS
  • Cloud Computing Challenges
    • Replication is hard, and expensive. Customers won’t pay for it as standard. It doesn’t really work outside of county / province distances (300km).
    • A lot of application vendors don’t yet have licensing policies for running in a virtualised environment.
    • It’s a new area - there’s not a lot of consultative expertise to call on.
    • Realising that there needs to be an industry standard API set and that means you may not control your customers services forever.
