(Top Level - Computing has made significant changes over the past 40 years. Today we are witnessing another major shift as the industry embraces Cloud Computing. You should elude to Microsoft’s and your partner company’s part in each of these transformations)MAINFRAME 1970s and 1980sFirst, let us take a look at the past 40 years and how IT has evolved. In the 1970s and 1980s, IT was a large compute device, the mainframe, in the datacenter with terminals on employees desks to retrieve data from the mainframeDuring this time, there was no concept of having computing power on an employee’s desk, applications, or even employees using technology at home. The consumers of these machines were large corporations, financial institutions, and healthcare organizations that were required to store large amounts of data. CLIENT/SERVER 1990sWhen we moved into the 1990s the PC revolution was in full swing. More and more people began to purchase PCs for their home in order to use technology to help with their personal livesAs these people began to have PCs in their homes, they wanted to have the same experience at work as they did at home. Businesses also began to feel the increasing costs of buying, supporting, and maintaining these large computers.IT used PCs as a solution to give employees more power to be more productive, have better access to data, and deliver better and more strategic results. The back office changed to support this shift by writing better applications that had a client component on each employee’s PC. This was very much one of the first instances of self service to dataWEB 2000sAs we approached and passed the year 2000, the Internet was becoming more prevalent in business and at home. More people began to use dial-up access to the Internet through companies like AOL, Netcom, or their local Telco. We even began to see the seeds of high speed internet access moving from business to the homefrontBusiness better adopted the idea of getting increased productivity from users by giving them access to corporate assets while outside of the office. Email, files, internal LOB tools for example. As we moved into 2003-2005 business began using the internet more and more to increase their revenues. Developers began moving away from writing client/server applications to writing applications for the web. Banks began providing online access to account information. Billpay services begun to flourish while online shopping was gaining more and more adoption.The world was moving more towards transacting their lives on the web while business were increasing their productivity and bottom line using the WebTODAY/CLOUDToday, I want to introduce you to a new transformation that is on our doorstep, The CloudThe Cloud is a natural build off the shift to the web, moving more of the tools we use on a day to day basis to someone else to run/support for us.Moving away from worrying about what runs the tools we need, but worrying about building the right toolsThis shift isn’t 1 or 2 years away, it is now.
For WAPU: This slide shows how the various options compare, then explicitly illustrates where the Windows Azure platform fits in. It’s meant to make clear in the audience’s mind the exact place in this broad area that we’re about to dig into more deeply.
Platform as a Service is an evolution in the way businesses will consume IT. There are a number of ways that PaaS improves on the way platforms todayFocus – Todays platforms are not focused on the app, they are focused on the infrastructure. PaaS is focused on the app and where it runsServicing – Todays platforms need to be continually updated by the owner of the platform. PaaS updates the platform automaticallyDeployment – Today’s platforms require assembly, then deployment. PaaS requires only deployment of the app or physical deployment of an applianceConsistency – Today’s platforms are higly custom and inconsistent with each other. PaaS is standardized and consistentResiliency – Todays platforms are built to avoid and recover from failure. PaaS is built to expect and withstand failurePlatform as a Service – It’s all about the App!
Key point: The Windows Azure Platform is a set of cloud computing services that can be used separately or together.Windows Azure is hosted in Microsoft data centers around the world. Windows Azure provides compute power, storage, and automated service management, as well as easy connectivity to other applications and access control to provide secure authorization and authentication of access to cloud resources. Also hosted in the Windows Azure platform is Microsoft SQL Azure, providing relational database services and automated management of relational service. SQL Azure can help reduce costs by integrating with existing toolsets and providing symmetry with on-premises and cloud databases. Windows Azure AppFabric helps developers connect applications and services in the cloud or on-premises. This includes applications running on Windows Azure, Windows Server and a number of other platforms including Java, Ruby, PHP and others. Windows Azure AppFabric provides a Service Bus for connectivity across network and organizational boundaries, and Access Control for federated authorization as a service.
