SETTING THE STAGE: CLOUD DRIVERS Scalability Business Agility Cost Capex to Opex Mobility Innovation Competitive… Organizations around the world are Cloud APIs transitioning an increasing amount of their IT budget and processes to Cloud ComputingOpen Source Projects services. In doing so they are realizing Customer demand benefits across departments and processes Internal Mandate and improving their revenue and ability to Other innovate. 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60%Source: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/btl/the-future-of-cloud-computing-9-trends-for-2012/805112 Cloud Computing 2.0

  12. 12. VERTICAL VS HORIZONTAL SCALE • Two methods of adding capacity • One has been largely ignored in cloud computing • Horizontal Scaling • Add more machines to the back end in response to load • Until recently, the only scaling choice available in public cloud • Programmatically intensive to communicate data across machines • Vertical Scaling • Add more CPU cores or RAM to an existing machine • No additional programming required, simply add more virtual hardware • New cloud scaling choice available from exactly one vendor (no reboot required)12 Cloud Computing 2.0
