  • 6. Page 6 What is Cloud Computing Cloud Computing Computing via the internet On-demand network access Shared pool of configurable resources
  • 7. Page 7 A Working Description of Cloud Computing Cloud computing - a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly deployed and/or released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction
  • 8. 5 Essential Cloud Characteristics Page 8  Broad network access  On-demand  Resource pooling  Location independence  “Infinite” scale  Measured service
  • 9. 4 Cloud Deployment Models Page 9  Private cloud Community cloud Hybrid cloud  Public cloud
  • 10. Page 10 Public Cloud Sold to the public, infinite-scale infrastructure
  • 11. Page 11 3 Cloud Service Types *To be considered “cloud” they must be deployed on top of cloud infrastructure that has the key characteristics
  • 12. Page 12  Storage Inside the Cloud  Infrastructure  Networking  Virtual Machines  Software Cloud Infastructure SaaS PaaS IaaS
  • 13. Primary Technologies Other Technologies Page 13 Foundation Elements of Cloud Computing  Virtualization  Grid technology  Service Oriented Architectures  Distributed Computing  Broadband Networks  Browser as a platform  Free and Open Source Software  Autonomic Systems  Web 2.0  Web application frameworks  Service Level Agreements
  • 14. Page 14 Driving Cloud Adoption
  • 15. Page 15 Cloud Economics
  • 16. Traditional Data Center Costs  Average 9000 square foot costs $21 million to build with $1 million in electricity costs/year Page 16  11.8 million servers; used at only 15% of capacity  Typically consume up to 100 times more energy per square foot than a typical office building  Data centers consume 1.5% of our nation’s electricity (EPA)
  • 17. Page 17 Traditional Software Costs $800 billion dollars spent yearly on purchasing and maintaining enterprise software  Expensive upgrade costs  Expensive licensing costs  Inflexibility  80% of enterprise software expenditure is on installation and maintenance
  • 18. Page 18 Cloud Economics Estimates vary widely on possible cost savings:  “If you move your data center to a cloud provider, it will cost a tenth of the cost.” – Brian Gammage, Gartner Fellow  “Use of cloud applications can reduce costs 50% to 90%” - CTO of Washington D.C.  “IT resource subscription pilot saw 28% cost savings” - Alchemy Plus (backing from Microsoft)  Preferred Hotel  Traditional: $210k server refresh and $10k/month  Cloud: $10k implementation and $16k/month
  • 19. Page 19 Possible Effects of Cloud Computing  Small enterprises  use SaaS and public clouds  minimize growth of data centers  Large enterprises  data centers evolve to act as private clouds  use hybrid clouds to leverage both internal and public clouds  Public clouds may adopt standards in order to run workloads from competing hybrid cloud infrastructures
  • 20. Cloud Deployment Examples Page 20
  • 21. Salesforce.com in Government Page 21  New Jersey Transit  Used it to build/run their call center, incident management, complaint tracking, and service portal  500% More inquiries handled  0 New agents required  36% Decrease in response time  U.S. Army used CRM for new Recruiting system  U.S. Army needed a tool to track potential new recruits who visited its Army Experience Center  Used it to track all core recruitment functions and allows the Army to save time and resources
