Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. Reuven Cohen
    • Founder & Chief Technologist at Enomaly Inc
    • Developer of more then 500 websites over the last 12 years
    • Extensive experience in almost all aspects in the development of highly scalable web applications
    • - Wife Brenda Cohen, Toronto based freelance creative director (Common Inc)
    • - Dog - Winston the Pug
    • - Hobbies include kayaking, hiking and cooking
  • 3. What is Cloud Computing?
    • A pool of abstracted, highly scalable, managed on demand compute infrastructure capable of hosting end- customer applications and billed by consumption
    • Scaling is typically provided automatically giving a uniform and reliable experience to the end application users
  • 4. A Brief History
  • 5. Cloud Enablers
    • Enablers - These are companies that enable the underlying infrastructure or the basic building blocks.
    • These companies are typically focused on data center automation and/or server virtualization (VMware/EMC,Citrix, Dell, HP, RedHat, Intel, Sun, IBM, Enomalism, etc)
    • These enablers can range from:
      • Chip level: Intel VT
      • Hypervisor: Xen, vmware
      • Orchestration: 3tera, Cassatt, Enomalism elastic computing platform
  • 6. Cloud Providers
    • Providers - Include Amazon web services, Rackspace, Google, Microsoft
    • The ones with the budgets and know how to build out global computing environments costing millions or even billions of dollars
    • Cloud providers typically offer their infrastructure or platform
    • Frequently these "As a Service" offerings are are billed & consumed on a utility basis
  • 7. Cloud Consumers
    • Consumers - Companies that build or improve their web applications (SaaS) on top of existing clouds of computing capacity without the need to invest in data centers or any physical infrastructure
    • Cloud computing from the consumer point of view is becoming the only way to build, host and deploy a scalable web applications
  • 8. Architectural fundamentals
  • 9. Workload distribution
  • 10. The Benefits
    • Cost savings, leveraging economies of scale
    • Pay for what you use
    • Resource flexibility
    • Rapid prototyping and market testing
    • Increased speed to market
    • Improved service levels and availability
    • Self-service deployment
    • Reduce lock-in and switching costs
  • 11. The Challenges
    • Enterprise IT wants control - Cloud computing presents enterprises with significant cost and agility benefits that IT will struggle to leverage due to security and control constraints
    • Business units want flexibility - If IT doesn’t provide business units with easy access to inexpensive cloud services, they will engage with external providers themselves, bypassing IT policy and control
  • 12. Enterprise Barriers
    • Data Security & Privacy
    • Regulatory Control (SoX, HIPPA, etc)
    • Lack of Audit, Governance & Accountability
    • Questionable Reliability & Performance
    • Lack of Management Tools
    • Lack of Integration with Internal Infrastructure
  • 13. Cloud Applications
    • R&D projects. Many enterprise shops are using clouds to test new services, scalability testing, applications, and design models
    • Low-priority business applications. Services such as Web-based collaboration, business intelligence against very large databases, partner-facing project sites, and other low-priority services
    • Web-based collaboration services. Apps which often have a short lifespan and a hassle to deploy via traditional IT procurement processes.
  • 14. The Players
    • Platform as a Service - led by Amazon Web Services (SQS, SDB), Salesforce.com, Akamai, Google (App Engine), Microsoft (Live), Coghead and Bungee Labs
    • Infrastructure as a Service - Larger companies including Amazon (EC2, S3) Rackspace (Mosso), Terremark and smaller players, such as Layered Technologies and Xcalibre, Enki
  • 15. The Future
    • The Web giants are investing heavily in mega-sized data centers, cloud-like middleware, and optimized management software and practices that make them likely candidates to o ff er cloud computing.
    • To date, they have been using these infrastructures to power their own services but could just as easily offer their platform as a service like Amazon EC2 has done.
  • 16. Questions
