  • A different type of resource pool. Traditional virtualized environments were built for enterprise apps and client-server compute. Scaling was hard (scaled up), overhead was high (1:hundreds) with significant penetration of proprietary vendor stacks.
  • Clouds are designed around next generation apps, big data and massive scale. Scaling is hortizontal, overhead is substantially lower (1:thousands) and open stacks and frameworks dominate.
  • The shift is having a profound impact on all companies but many are left confused on where to start. New mindsets and methodologies must be adopted.
  • Initial biggest drivers are simple value propositions
  • Security gets the headlines but it’s not the main blocker
  • That pressure often leads to loss of control. Traditional controls and barriers are gone, business lines are empowered with IT like never before.
  • RS has 160 people working on this
  • Preventing what is an all-to-common problem we see when enterprises adopt cloud
  • This path often leads to lack of agility … stuck feeding an inefficient machine
  • Business agility is the true measure of cloud ROI … agile deployment
  • Forrester – cloud brokerMore relevantNot being siloedStandardizationDo you speak rightscale
  • When IT gets involved … when this whole thing needs to come together
  • IT has not been involved in that adoption … don’t understand that you need automation on top of images … why image buildingAnyone that is doing anything at size and complexity, you are now tasked with doing that for a portfollio
  • Giving them an image and telling them to go install all the components is note that answer … machine image is only half way there … manually build, etc.They beat you to the punch on public cloud. … you’re back in game delivering value
