    • What is Cloud Computing
      • Cloud Computing
        • Computing via the internet
        • On-demand network access
        • Shared pool of configurable resources
    • 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
    • 5 Essential Cloud Characteristics
      • Broad network access
      • On-demand
      • Resource pooling
        • Location independence
      • “ Infinite” scale
      • Measured service
    • 4 Cloud Deployment Models
      • Private cloud
      • Community cloud
      • Hybrid cloud
      • Public cloud
    • Public Cloud Sold to the public, infinite-scale infrastructure
    • 3 Cloud Service Types *To be considered “cloud” they must be deployed on top of cloud infrastructure that has the key characteristics
      • Storage
      • Infrastructure
      • Networking
      • Virtual Machines
      • Software
      Inside the Cloud Cloud Infastructure SaaS PaaS IaaS
    • Foundation Elements of Cloud Computing
      • Virtualization

      • Web 2.0
      • Web application frameworks
      • Service Level Agreements
      Other Technologies Primary Technologies
    • Driving Cloud Adoption
    • Cloud Economics
    • Traditional Data Center Costs
      • Average 9000 square foot costs $21 million to build with $1 million in electricity costs/year
      • 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)
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • Cloud Deployment Examples
    • Salesforce.com in Government
      • 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
