  1. 1. cloud computing for libraries TiU, LIS, MvdB, 15-04-2012
  2. 2. cloud computing for libraries we all use the cloud 2
  3. 3. cloud computing for libraries at work 3
  4. 4. cloud computing for librariesin libraries, research and education 4
  5. 5. cloud computing for libraries GartnerCloud computing: “a style of computing in whichmassively scalable and elastic IT-enabledcapabilities are delivered as a service to externalcustomers using Internet technologies.”The 4S experience—consumers’ desire to Predicts 2012:• store• sync Cloud Computing Is• stream Becoming a Reality• and sharetheir content seamlessly PC stands for … personal cloudregardless of device or platform. (from 2014). 5

  9. 9. cloud computing for libraries service types 2• Private cloud – on site – outsourced• Community (vertical) cloud research data learning objects – on multiple sites – outsourced• Public cloud 9

  11. 11. cloud computing for libraries SURF: cloud delivery models and service types 11
  12. 12. cloud computing for libraries why?• scalable • technology• elastic improvements• anytime, anywhere • integrated services• any device (iPads …) • no upgrades• pay per usage • community power• economy of scale & • online skills collaboration, easy sharing • findability 12
  13. 13. cloud computing for libraries why not?• standard services • vendor lock-in• inflexibel • reliability (+ or -)• legal & privacy issues• poor integration with • security existing systems on campus and other cloud solutions• fixed subscription price (e.g. per fte) 13
  14. 14. cloud computing for libraries cloud storage 1• many suppliers (IBM, Amazon…Dropbox, Mozy)• some data is more equal than others – one size does not fit all – hybrid solution (public, community, private) – storage ≠ back-up• reliability, continuity, integrity• performance 14
  15. 15. cloud computing for libraries cloud storage 2: preparations1. before you get in: how to get out?2. functionality and performance3. legal issues – ownership – privacy – security – integrity – continuity – SLA’s4. cost 15
  16. 16. cloud computing for librariesarchitectural & technical requirements• clear architecture, separated services, e.g.: – identity management – payment services – authentication & autorisation• well defined interfaces (open, mashable)• open standards• secure channels• network access & bandwith 16
  17. 17. cloud computing for libraries requirements: different skills LESS MORE • operations • IT architects • systems management • information analysts • application • legal knowledge development • contracting skills • helpdesk? • service (level) management 17
  18. 18. cloud computing for libraries requirements for libraries• separation between front end and back end• separation of services – account management – financial (licensing, fees, fines)• standardise (MARC21, RDA, …)• know your functional requirements (MoSCoW)• collaborate closely with IT 18
  19. 19. cloud computing for libraries the view from NL• higher education CEO’s & SURF: cloud first – common strategy – preconditions: security, privacy & identity management – business cases – governance – community cloud services 19
  20. 20. cloud computing for libraries the view from Tilburg: data• high level SAN’s on campus• 2 sites (fail over)• back-up at SARA in Amsterdam• for research: low cost NAS – no back-up• research data sets in Dataverse – back from Harvard to Utrecht – -> community cloud (SURF)?• library data to the cloud: OCLC (WMS)• student e-mail and data to the cloud: Google 20
  21. 21. cloud computing for librariesthe view from Tilburg: applications• SAP (HR & finance): hosted yes, (public) cloud no• SIS: hosted -> community cloud?• CRM: -> cloud• student e-mail & apps: Microsoft -> Google• side effect: Google apps for staff• library – ILS front end: WorldCat (cloud) – ILS back end: WMS (cloud) 21
  22. 22. cloud computing for libraries the view from Tilburg: focus shift• from – IT support – systems management – application development• to – education support – research support – opening up management information – allow mobile services 22
