  • Hello! My name is Paul Tomaso. I am currently a doctoral student in Computer Science at Colorado Technical University. The next few slides are a metaphorical presentation for and introduction to cloud computing. The first slide is called Cloud Computing and Actuality of being. Actuality of Being is about doing the every day things that we welcome into our lives. Just be me! Space! Virtualization! In an organizational environment actuality is about organizational objectives. Perhaps a conference! For the individual, we may just need to sit and ponder the day ahead! Perhaps, take things slowly, moving at the pace that is best for us. Whether we live in a city or in a more rural setting, there is a wide open space out there, ready for us to take a new path. A path that takes us to develop beyond what we could possibly imagine! Cloud computing offers that path through the accepted architecture template. The foundation, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), is the hardware base. The key component is virtualization. The current way is to add processors and memory. This way tends to stifle development through increased cost that may or may not provide a return! Virtualization allows increased expression – development – without limiting our playfulness, provide the opportunity to explore new spaces, and set the pace of our development.
  • Cloud computing and daydreaming. If there is any domestic being on earth that does a lot of daydreaming, it has to be a cat. I’m not too sure that the cat in the picture completed her analysis of the pages, but sometimes we can easily find ourselves drifting off amidst a pile of work. Books can take us into different realms to send our imagination reaching into new directions. In 1902, a French silent film, “ Trip to the Moon ”, certainly brought to life the images of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells stories about space travel. Given the understanding of outside of earth for that time period the film is quite fascinating to watch! Take yourselves back in time to 1902. Forget about all that happens after this film, and do a little daydreaming! Can we make a delivery vehicle to send people to the moon and back? Certainly the film offers one idea! Take all our experiences and knowledge and begin to daydream … explore the possibilities! Given the materials are available to build, how do we program the vehicle? The middle layer of the Cloud architecture is the Platform as a Service (PaaS). The tools, such as compilers, database packages, become available to develop our thoughts … design our own applications tuned to our needs. Again, virtualization provides the computing power as needed. There is another environment available for public and private use to daydream … the virtual worlds. There is activity toward employing cloud architectures to the virtual world environments. In these worlds, we find ourselves in ancient Greece, in the Louvre, or possibly in a thousand year old cathedral in another country! The virtual worlds provide the ‘what if’ environment to develop simulations without the cost physical items bring to our dreaming … ‘what if’!
  • To be enlightened is to be informed … To be informed … requires experiences! To acquire experiences, we need to learn about the world around us! Limiting our knowledge is like being chained to a wall … watching life move before us! To grow to establish who we are, we need to define the places, and things, that are about us. We need to build our own personal database – who we are, and what we know to grow as a person. Only a few decades ago, geography limited communications. Our knowledge of the world was information bound … bound to limited access to knowledge. To grow we need to explore the space around us, and when we establish our places around that space, we spread out in the space beyond… We explore! First on foot, next the printed word, then the computer increasingly broadened our horizons to explore. The Internet sent us to spaces around the globe, and into space, well beyond the constraints of the earth! The Internet set the foundation, the way to new vistas. Infrastructure as a Service, IaaS, provides a platform beyond the limitations of a single computer, freedom from the worries of maintenance and frequent updates. Where once a file from one vendor was unreadable in another vendors system, the IaaS opens the door across personal standalone computer based systems. There is no limiting memory walls. There is not limitation to how many users can access information. Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides the resources to generate our own database systems and programming to fit specific needs. These can be our stepping stone to new worlds! We make our own bridges through our curiosity to see things in different lights
  • Cloud computing and Friendship. Sharing … Friendship is about experiencing together. There are many activities, the list continues to grow. The more well know ones are on this slide. There are services, such as Picasa for photos, Google Docs. There are opportunities to share videos, such as YouTube, Vimeo. There is also a growth in hosting services, and database application packages, like Drupal. Of course there is an evolution of sharing ideas and messages, like Facebook and Twitter. Some time search for companies like Nokia with future interfaces like goggles that an individual can access E-mail, weather, and change channels through eye and hand movements. Many of these applications/services are handles at the Software as a Service level (SaaS) The data volume is growing exponentially! The use of virtual machines and processing – sharing physical hardware – memory on an ad hoc basis (Infrastructure as a Service) can provide much of the loads. Much of this is developing. Privacy is still a concern.
  • There are times when we need a little space to ourselves ... Sometimes, when the clouds bring rain … we find that, … this is a good time to sit, relax, and take time for ourselves. In this private time, we may ride around the Internet enjoying the places that can be further explored. Perhaps, the time is to explore new vistas? Try out new ideas? Tinker with an idea, and see where we can go? These require increase and decrease of hardware (IaaS) and applications (SaaS) through a Service Lease Agreement (SLA) which determines a cost acceptable to an organization or individual. The PaaS provides database, programming for special functionality not available in the Software level, an encryption routines for security. Security is still an issue. One study found that securing to lower levels of data – more secure data – was an ever increasing cost. We have Private Clouds located within the bounds of an organization. We have the open access Public Clouds. There is the combination of Private and Public, the Hybrid Cloud. A Community Cloud is a clustering of several cloud environments. To maintain privacy, the Private Cloud maintains firewalls to keep within the designated bounds. The Hybrid Cloud has concerns as the data goes outside the private areas. A key research is to look at how to optimize the data and applications for optimum privacy. When our privacy need to be within our circle of comfort, extra hardware and services diminish. When out privacy needs to expand, the SLA widens our reach – still comfortable with our privacy (and cost) – The bottom line is that cloud computing can allow us to reach out when we’re ready! Thank you!
