  • Will ultimately be this but mis-leading now. It is a virtualized environment. Pooling of resources – moving to a model of anytime, anywhere access to technology (i.e. your data, your applications, your email, etc.)
  • Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption, and delivery model for IT services based on Internet protocols, and it typically involves provisioning of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources.
  • in hardware virtualization, a hypervisor (a piece of software) imitates a computer hardware.
  • Source: National Institute of Standards and Technology, http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/SNS/cloud-computing/ Platform as a service — Cloud platform services, whereby the computing platform (operating system and associated services) is delivered as a service over the Internet by the provider. &amp;quot; Infrastructure as a Service ( IaaS ) &amp;quot;, delivers computer infrastructure - typically a platform virtualization environment - as a service. Rather than purchasing servers, software, data-center space or network equipment, clients instead buy those resources as a fully outsourced service. Suppliers typically bill such services on a utility computing basis and amount of resources consumed (and therefore the cost) will typically reflect the level of activity. IaaS evolved from virtual private server offerings A major difference between IaaS and PaaS is the amount of control over the system available to users of the services. IaaS provides total control, PaaS typically provides no control. This also means virtually zero administration costs for PaaS whereas IaaS has administration costs similar to a traditional computing infrastructure. There are a number of PaaS providers including Google App Engine, Microsoft Azure and Salesforce.com’s Force.com. IaaS is Amazon AWS, Rackspace Cloud Servers.
  • Social acceptance is primary factor driving adoption
  • A hundred years ago, companies stopped generating their own power with steam engines and dynamos and plugged into the newly built electric grid. The cheap power pumped out by electric utilities didn’t just change how businesses operate. It set off a chain reaction of economic and social transformations that brought the modern world into existence. Today, a similar revolution is under way. Hooked up to the Internet’s global computing grid, massive information-processing plants have begun pumping data and software code into our homes and businesses. This time, it’s computing that’s turning into a utility. The shift is already remaking the computer industry, bringing new competitors like Google and Salesforce.com to the fore and threatening stalwarts like Microsoft and Dell. But the effects will reach much further. Cheap, utility-supplied computing will ultimately change society as profoundly as cheap electricity did. We can already see the early effects — in the shift of control over media from institutions to individuals, in debates over the value of privacy, in the export of the jobs of knowledge workers, even in the growing concentration of wealth. As information utilities expand, the changes will only broaden, and their pace will only accelerate.

    3. 3. Industry Trends “ By 2012, 20% of businesses will own no IT assets .” Key Predictions, January 2010 March 2009 “ The cloud-services market was worth $17 billion in 2009, and projects it to swell to $44 billion by 2013, for a compound annual growth rate of 26%. ” “ The bulk of business computing will shift out of private data centers to the cloud.” Nicholas Carr, Author “ 58% say cloud computing will cause a radical shift in IT and 47% say they are already using it or actively researching it.” October 2008

    5. 5. Cloud Definition <ul><li>&quot;Cloud computing is 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 provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.“ (NIST.gov) </li></ul>Source: NIST.gov

    22. 22. Revolution Evolution of Cloud Computing Data processing and decisions kept to a select few A long long time ago… (1970) Raised-floor Data Center Dumb Terminal People accessed large mainframe computers through devices referred to As dumb terminals. These terminals were primarily sources for data to be passed to and from the mainframe where the data was processed.
    23. 23. Revolution Evolution of Cloud Computing Move data processing, decision making to the masses in a controlled way In the 1980s Client/Server Was Born Client/Server An architecture in which the user's PC (the client) is the requesting machine and the server is the supplying machine, both of which are connected via a local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, client/server was the hot buzzword as applications were migrated from centralized minicomputers and mainframes to networks of desktop computers.
    24. 24. Revolution Evolution of Cloud Computing Move data processing, decision making, and collaboration to everyone And Now in 2011 it’s Cloud Computing What is Cloud Computing ? Cloud computing is the delivery of information technology services over the internet at a dramatically lower cost and with dynamic scalability. The cloud concept incorporates software as a service (SaaS) as well as other recent technology trends satisfying the computing needs of users via the internet. Examples include Salesforce.com and Google Apps which provide common business applications online that are accessed from a web browser, while the software and data are stored on the servers. 
    25. 25. Transition Periods Mainframe Client Server Cloud Computing Transition Transition Technology transitions occur all the time and are expected – During transitional periods end-users require the most help and rely on external expertise. Through transitional periods the most effective service companies do not take a position on which technology is best. Instead they take the best position for their customer and provide the most effective support to transition at the right time the right way. Opportunities for service providers are better after a transition then before as the marketplace Is less knowledgeable and new services are created. Service Providers who do not evolve through the transitional period are at risk.
