  • Storage Cloud 101
    Unlimited storage available over the internet
    On-demand and Elastic
    Over-provisioning: A thing of the past
    Web services interface (REST,SOAP)
    Other protocols can be built on top of these
    Cost typically based on actual storage and bandwidth used
    Off-site
    Ideal for Secondary and Tertiary Storage
    Amazon S3 is the market leader
  • Moving to the Cloud: Storage Considerations
    Locking up your backup data in proprietary formats (including proprietary clouds) comes with a HUGE cost.
    Robustness
    Scalability
    Cost
    Flexibility
    Location of Application Binaries
  • Backup to CloudCloud as Secondary Storage
  • Backup to CloudCloud as Tertiary Storage
  • Backup to CloudMultiple Clouds
  • Why Backup to Cloud?
    No capital expenses.
    Reduce infrastructure management tasks
    Faster recovery from offsite backups
    Geographic accessibility
    More efficiency and reliability for SMB customers
    Multiple cloud vendors to improve reliability
    Backup data available in the cloud for additional analysis such as e-discovery

  • Panel Questions
    What are the most common projects your customers are taking to the cloud?
    What is the most significant hurdle you see customers managing in their move to the cloud?
    What are the short- to mid-term technology milestones that IT managers should look out for as they plan migration to the cloud?
    What IT skills does a customer need to use your cloud offering?
    Take us through your on-ramping to the cloud.

  • Example Use Cases
    Biopharma – various applications
    Collaboration, grids for compound analysis
    Compute intensive statistical analysis
    Challenge: internal lead times, cost of data center build-out
    Cloud payoff: agile deployment, cost savings, application compliance, portability to avoid lock-in
    Health insurance – claim form processing
    Grid processing of 10M's claim forms for fraud, etc.
    .NET based application, hybrid system, HIPAA compliant
    Challenge: support business, avoid $1M+ data center build-out
    Cloud payoff: automation of scale-up and scale-down, enabled contracts previously not possible
  • Example Use Cases
    Media – social networking site
    Web 2.0: Rails, MySQL
    Challenge: scalability, agile deployment, automation
    Cloud payoff: quick on-ramp, responsive to flash crowds, easy to clone for other projects
    Software – version update site
    Parallel updates for thousands of installations
    Challenge: servicing frequent update efficiently
    Cloud payoff: scalability for speed, cost-savings
