CloudAsia 2012 Highlights

  1. 1. CloudAsia 2012HighlightsMay 18th 2012www.alanquayle.com/blog
  2. 2. Conference Highlights• Observations on Cloud Computing, Tim Grance, NIST• Case Studies o Changi Airport Case Study, Steve Lee, CIO o SITA Case Study, Greg Ouillon, VP Air Transportation Industry Transport (AITA) Cloud o Enterprise Challenges in Cloud Adoption, Ezhil Arasan Babaraj, Director R&D Labs, CSS Corp o MyTransport.SG: Co-Creating with the Community, Mrs Rosina Howe, Chief Innovation Officer & Group Director, Innovation & InfoComm Technology, Land Transport Authority• Security o Outbound data leakage case studies, Wong Onn Chee, Managing Director, Infotect Security o Cloud Security, Jim Reavis, CSA• Network Access o Metro Ethernet for Cloud Services, Firdaus Monir, Telekom Malaysia• Other Useful Data o Couple of good slides from IBM, Simon Choy, Chief Strategist and Executive Sponsor - Cloud, IBM ASEAN o Importance of hybrid architecture and APIs, Simon West, CMO, SoftLayer Technologies o Asia Cloud Computing Stats, Per Dahlberg, Chief Executive Officer, Asia Cloud Computing Association 2
  3. 3. I recommend the use of the NIST Cloud framework as the most impartialavailable. Though the Hybrid cloud definition could be improved the overall framework provides a common language and framework. 3
  4. 4. Cloud Computing is simply a technology (virtualized and automated IT infrastructure) and business model (pay per use). I think of it simply as “ITinfrastructure outsourcing”. On Trust, its like asking if a hosted server is secure – 4 the whole system needs to be evaluated, not a piece of technology.
  5. 5. I liked Tim’s summary of Cloud Issues. 5
  6. 6. A key point here is the browsers and client apps MUST be considered part of the cloud deployment. 6
  7. 7. Using Cloud Computing technology is a business decision. Legacy applications requirement migration – which costs time and money and has risk. 7
  8. 8. Access networks remains key. The presentation by Firdaus Monir, shown later in these slides, provides a good review of the Metro Ethernet Forum’s work here. 8
  9. 9. Cloud Computing is simply a technology, organization’s existing security systems must be extended / complemented to adopt this technology. 9
  10. 10. Great summary of the issues to consider in adopting Cloud Computing. 10
  11. 11. Great summary of the steps. Business led, with a consideration of architecture, bi- directional app / workload migration strategy. The final point is key and whytaking an incremental approach is critical, focus on the workloads that have fewer 11 issues.
  12. 12. Case Studies 12
  13. 13. Good case study on Cloud adoption. 13
  14. 14. Changi airport is big! 28k workers, 200 businesses. 14
  15. 15. Currently the 7th largest airport by traffic. 15
  16. 16. Strong demand for shared services. 16
  17. 17. More broadly, many airports are adopting cloud computing. Cost savings areprimary motivation, followed by agility (which means it costs less to do new things, such as supporting multiple devices.) 17
  18. 18. SITA and Orange Business Services (OBS) also adopting cloud computing (reviewed later in this pack). 18
  19. 19. Good example of some of the apps that can be applied to the cloud (both publicand private). Here public is used for disaster recover / business continuity as well as public-facing services – but encryption is important. 19
  20. 20. Changi has its own MPLS network between its multiple private data centers.These support a range of shared services including information kiosks, customer feedback terminals and displays, and check-in terminals. 20
  21. 21. Cost dominates, and the agility benefit is closely linked to being able to supportmultiple devices – an increasing problem for CIOs. Changi’s energy bill is about$100M per year, so energy savings do have a significant impact on cost savings. 21
  22. 22. SITA was mentioned in the Changi case study and presents another case study in successful cloud adoption 22
  23. 23. Broad range of shared services 23
  24. 24. Good case study on the implementation of a community cloud. 24
  25. 25. Cloud Computing enables resources to be shared across all customers. 25
  26. 26. Note the 100ms latency requirement, hence importance of MPLS network as well as global DC infrastructure. Global Telcos are winning Cloud deals in such bigdeployments; but SMB, mid market and large national enterprises are much more 26 competitive.
  27. 27. Services offered are available via a marketplace. 27
  28. 28. Good example of cloud adoption. But note it’s a special situation, and not typical of many businesses. Same is true with web-based start-ups. Hence the gap we currently see in cloud computing adoption. 28
  29. 29. This presentation gave a good summary of the issues and initial approach. 29
  30. 30. 30
  31. 31. This key is identifying the initial workloads to migrate to the cloud, here TOGAF provides a good decision tree as described in my pre-conference workshop. 31
  32. 32. Good list of best practices – multi-cloud to avoid lock-in, understand what SLAsmean, stateless / loose coupling / design for failure are true for any IT solution today; but equally important to solutions including cloud computing. 32
  33. 33. Case Study on use of co-creation community. 33
  34. 34. 34
  35. 35. 35
  36. 36. 36
  37. 37. 37
  38. 38. Security 38
  39. 39. Great review of the outbound data leakage from websites. Though not specificallya cloud problem, as many cloud deployments include the companies website, it’s a good time to plug this gap during the cloud migration project. 39

  72. 72. SoftLayer highlighted two key points: Reality of a hybrid architecture acrossdedicated services, cloud instances and private clouds; and the increasing role of APIs (Application Program Interfaces) to manage this infrastructure by the enterprise. 72
