    • 2. The Cloud: Noise or Necessity?
    • 3. It is Disruptive “ In a recent test, the Defense Information Systems Agency compared the cost of developing a simple application called the Tech Early Bird on $30,000 worth of in-house servers and software with the costs of developing the same application using the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud from’s Web Services. Amazon charged 10 cents an hour for the service, and DISA paid a total of $5 to develop an application that matched the performance of the in-house application.” Quoted from:
    • 4. But what is it?
        • Extreme programmability through open APIs
        • Embrace open standards
        • Disruptive and Flexible pricing
    • 5. Where can we leverage the Cloud today?
        • Web Infrastructure: Amazon Web Services and RightScale
