  3. 3. A working definition Cloud (n) On-demand compute with consumptive billing • On-demand Rapidly provisioned services • Compute Servers, network, storage, firewalls, ancillary services • Consumptive billing Turns traditional fixed IT costs into variable – monthly or hourly • Initial model – virtualized multi-tenancy computing – does not meet requirements for 100% of applications and use cases • For broadest applicability, user-selectable levels of performance and isolation are required 3 © 2014 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. A better platform Unified architecture with common management and programming interfaces • Common command and control interface across a unified architecture • Combine bare-metal servers, public cloud instances and private cloud deployments into distributed hybrid architectures and manage from a single control pane and API • All deployed on-demand and provisioned in real-time • Ideally suited to big data deployments, high I/O and latency-sensitive apps 4 © 2014 IBM Corporation
