What constitutes Cloud Computing?Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a model for provisioning hardware (compute, storage, networking, etc...) to the end user where management of the underlying fabric is controlled by the provider, but the end user maintains control of the operating system and applications installed within. This system usually includes a metered-byuse cost model and allows the end user to expand/contract their use of the infrastructure as needed, usually via self-service portals. Examples include: FastHosts, Go Daddy, Rackspace, Amazon EC2, vCloud Express Services (e.g., BlueLock, Hosting.Com, Melboure IT, Terremark), private clouds deployed/managed by IT as service to business units (internalIT’s end-customers), Azure Service with the VM RolePlatform as a Service(PaaS) is a model for delivering complete development platforms as a cloud service. PaaS offerings facilitate development, testing, deployment and on-going maintenance of applications without the cost of buying the underlying infrastructure and software environments. Examples include: Microsoft Azure Platform, Google App Engine, VMforce.comSoftware as a Service (SaaS) is a model where an application is delivered over the Internet and customers pay on a per-use basis. It is the most common form of cloud computing delivered today. Examples include: BPOS, Salesforce.com, Hosted Exchange, Salesforce.comCore attributes of Cloud Computing Scalable, Elastic, Multi-tenancy, Metered by Use, Self Service
Now that we have discussed the Cloud Computing parts, lets discuss what the private cloud is and how it plays into Cloud Computing and IT as a Service.Private clouds are one way to consume cloud computing. Within a private cloud you can deliver Infrastructure as a Service either built by you the customer, or delivered via a service provider. (Click)You can also deliver Platform as a Service either through buying and deploying an appliance yourself, or delivered through a Service Provider.(Click)Today, we are going to concentrate in private clouds that deliver Infrastructure as a Service.
Now, what is the difference between highly virtualized computing and a private cloud.Highly virtualized computing gives you the benefits of increased utilization of your servers, power savings, and reduced server footprint. We are familiar with these as they are in datacenters today. However, this does not equal the private cloud.A Private cloud provides all of those benefits plus highly integrated and automated management, scalable and elastic platforms, and self service.Highly Automated – No longer do IT personnel need to worry about keeping software up to dateSelf-Service– Providing self-service IT infrastructure to business units and departments with an SLA. This forces service-level discussion and removes the burden to procure, provision and manage infrastructure on a per application, ad-hoc basisScalable and Elastic – Enabling faster delivery of capacity when resource needs change. In addition, private clouds can deliver not only IaaS, they can deliver PaaS.
Infrastructure as a Service is an evolution in the way business will consume IT. There are a number of ways that IaaS improves on the way infrastructure is delivered todayUtilization – Today’s infrastructure must be designed for the worst case scenario of high demand. The end result is the low utilization of servers. With IaaS, utilization increases to take better advantage of the investment in hardware. Automation – Today’s infrastructure has little to no automation. One of the key tenets of IaaS is high automation which lays the groundwork for things like self service.Server/User Ratio – In today’s infrastructure each IT administrator can manage fewer servers due to the lack of automation and other advances. With IaaS and its advances each IT administrator can manage more servers. Deployment Scale – Today infrastructure must be designed for peak scale only. With IaaS the infrastructure capacity can grow and shirk dynamically based on demandPhysical vs. Virtual – Today’s infrastructure is mostly physical. IaaS is uses more virtualization to increase utilization and provide dynamic scalePath to the Future – Todays infrastructure make the transition to the public cloud and PaaS difficult. IaaS makes that path clearer and easierIn the end, it’s all about efficiency

Today, our federated identity solutions allow your to manage identities and access on premises and in multiple public cloud services (including non-Microsoft). Microsoft is also bringing the power of Windows Azure to the private cloud with the Windows Azure Platform Appliance, a turnkey cloud platform thatservice providers, large enterprises and governments can deploy in their own datacenter, across hundreds to thousands of servers. WAPA will deliver the power of the Windows Azure Platform to your datacenter. Common Management “Single pane of glass” for apps deployed across on-premises and Windows Azure:§ Common Identity with Windows Azure AppFabric: Fabrikam demo on how federated identities across multiple entities enable streamlining of business processes (we’re landing this demo at PDC as well I believe) § We should also try and reinforce the business value of the following Windows Azure PDC announcements: · Easier mobility of apps between on premises and Windows Azure (enabling burst scenarios for example): VM role · Enable a broader set of appsrun in the public cloud without requiring a rewrite, simplified app deployment and lowered operational expense: Server Application Virtualization allows app sequencing and deployment on Windows Azure worker roles. Messaging around server Application Virtualization is still being finalized….but the above should hold for most part.

Architect IT services for shared and abstracted compute resource pools using the free Self Service Portal6. Get started today with the Windows Azure Platform, testing new apps and service delivery mechanismsThe best way to prepare for the cloud is to use the same Microsoft products and technologies you would use to optimize a traditional datacenter. Additionally, you should consider the following five options: Ramp up Virtualization Efforts and ExpertiseOrganizations should increase their knowledge of and experience with virtualization and virtualization management by utilizing Hyper-V and Virtual Machine Manager. Together, these tools can enable organizations to increase hardware utilization, reduce costs, and streamline physical and virtual server management.Standardize on Scalable Server HardwareWith the release of Windows Server 2008 R2, organizations have access to a wealth of new capabilities that can reduce the cost of datacenter operations, enhance security and availability, extend access more broadly, and improve server manageability. The opportunity for organizations is to scale these benefits to their entire server and datacenter infrastructure while maximizing the use of their resources through new approaches such as server virtualization. Because of its primary role in the server infrastructure, server modernization is a great way to accelerate the process of optimizing the datacenter. Standardize Management for Both Physical and Virtual Server EnvironmentsThe adoption of server-management best practices for automation, virtualization, and integrated management provides the opportunity to save thousands of dollars each year in operational costs.
