NCOIC Enterprise Cloud Computing - Kevin Jackson

  1. 1. Enterprise Cloud Computing Session at the World Summit of Cloud Computing KEVIN JACKSON DIRECTOR, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
  2. 2. NCOIC-IGT quot;Enterprise Cloud Computing“ Session  ~100 registered  ~50 attendees • Merrill Lynch, Ebay, Forrester, 451 Group, IBM, Amazon, Gigaspaces, BMC, Open Group Forum  Initial Topics • Cloud Interoperability • Cloud Standards • Cloud Computing Reference Architecture (i.e. SOA-R) • Forrester “Ultra Modular Computing” • Cloud Computing Service Layers • 2009 Events
  3. 3. The Clouds Space SaaS PaaS IaaS Cloud PC (DaaS) Enterprise External IntraClouds InterClouds Load Balancing of Cost/Performance Cloud Computing: Pay-per-Use for On-Demand Scalability
  4. 4. The Clouds Space High Risk Data Low Risk data General Peak Time R&D Ad-hoc Projects Enterprise External IntraClouds InterClouds Load Balancing of Cost/Performance Cloud Computing: Pay-per-Use for On-Demand Scalability
  5. 5. Ultra Modular Computing • Like Cloud Computing, but deployed within the Enterprise – and with some key differences Applications 'Enterprise Enabling Software Layer(s)' Commodit y hardware infrastructure 5 Entire contents © 2008 Forrester Research, Inc. All rights reserved.
  6. 6. UMC has potential to be hugely disruptive • Possible combination of both Grid and Cloud Computing technologies – but deployed within the Enterprise • Exploits ultra low cost of commodity hardware • Reduces cost to manage by 10x-100x • Provides many of the business advantages of Cloud Computing, but without several of the concerns • Introduces an enterprise-specific asynchronous, transaction-based, dynamic and scalable computing environment 6 Entire contents © 2008 Forrester Research, Inc.

  7. 7. How UMC will arrive … • All Enterprises encounter ‘core decision events’ -when an opportunity appears which provides the chance to introduce major change • UMC will exploit ‘thin end of the wedge’ adoption; can be introduced gradually • Main downside: most costs are up front in the initial enterprise-specific software environment – but, once done, scalability is there for the taking 7 Entire contents © 2008 Forrester Research, Inc.

  8. 8. Key UMC decisions • Should the UMC software environment: » only look to the future (new application and development models) » enable existing application and development models, and, possibly, operating systems » both* * This is the most expensive route 8 Entire contents © 2008 Forrester Research, Inc.

  9. 9. “Standards Body” Approach  Cloud Computing Interoperability Forum  “Unified Cloud Interface” (aka broker)  Implement as XMPP Extension Protocol (XEP)  Address PaaS and IaaS  Collaboration with OASIS, OMG, W3C, and OGF on Cloud Reference Architecture  “Global Socialization” through 2009 events - NCOIC Enterprise Cloud Computing Working Groups - Open Group 2009 Global Enterprise Cloud Computing Conferences - CloudCamp - ASD NII Cloud Computing Conference - World Summit of Cloud Computing  Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) approval  IEEE International Workshop on Cloud Computing
  10. 10. “Adopt Proven Technology” Approach  General Disagreement with “Standards Body” approach  External vs. Internal Cloud Competition • Legacy applications to the cloud o High value for Enterprise CIO o Worst scenario for External cloud providers • External cloud best practices (like EC2) result in Enterprise cloud implementation and management applications and tools • Internal metering vs. External implementation o Lack of metering tools o Lack of consistent metrics o Inability to build Internal vs. External ROI  Cloud Application definition • Entire application in cloud, • Single service in cloud • Mashed-up services in cloud • 3Tera Applogic “Automation Bundle”  Adopt existing Cloud-VM standard • Distributed Management Task Force - Open Virtualization Format (DMTF-OVF) • Reservoir Project
  11. 11. “Customer Driven” Approach  Technology doesn’t set standards. Industry use cases set the standards  Main Cloud Value = Reduced Cost • Solid Cloud ROI model required  Define Interoperability Requirements from Customer Viewpoint • Disaster Recovery o Between Enterprise and External Cloud o Between External Clouds  Customer Driven Standards & Interoperability • Identify industry cloud needs via Web/Email Survey, Interviews, etc. • Build Internal/External Cloud ROI models • Large Industry Customers cooperatively drive cloud vendor standards and interoperability through ability to deliver on Industry organization cloud ROI models
  12. 12. Personal Observation  Three distinct and valuable approaches • Standards Body • Adopt Proven Technology • Customer Driven  Issues • Global agreement on standards could be a long process • “Proven Technology” may mean “Proprietary Technology” • Multiple industry customers could result in industry linked standards for cloud  Hybrid needed (Examples) • Release “Proven Technology” to industry and adopt as basis for open standard • Multiple standards optimized for industry ROI models • “Interoperability Rating “ issued after standards body technical review  NCOIC engagement needed for any approach
