MeshU Cloud Camp

  1.  
  2. Reuven Cohen <ul><li>Founder & Chief Technologist at Enomaly Inc </li></ul><ul><li>Developer of more then 500 websites over the last 12 years </li></ul><ul><li>Extensive experience in almost all aspects in the development of highly scalable web applications </li></ul><ul><li>- Wife Brenda Cohen, Toronto based freelance creative director (Common Inc) </li></ul><ul><li>- Dog - Winston the Pug </li></ul><ul><li>- Hobbies include kayaking, hiking and cooking </li></ul>
  3. What is Cloud Computing? <ul><li>A pool of abstracted, highly scalable, managed on demand compute infrastructure capable of hosting end- customer applications and billed by consumption </li></ul><ul><li>Scaling is typically provided automatically giving a uniform and reliable experience to the end application users </li></ul>
  4. A Brief History
  5. Cloud Enablers <ul><li>Enablers - These are companies that enable the underlying infrastructure or the basic building blocks. </li></ul><ul><li>These companies are typically focused on data center automation and/or server virtualization (VMware/EMC,Citrix, Dell, HP, RedHat, Intel, Sun, IBM, Enomalism, etc) </li></ul><ul><li>These enablers can range from: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Chip level: Intel VT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypervisor: Xen, vmware </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Orchestration: 3tera, Cassatt, Enomalism elastic computing platform </li></ul></ul>
  6. Cloud Providers <ul><li>Providers - Include Amazon web services, Rackspace, Google, Microsoft </li></ul><ul><li>The ones with the budgets and know how to build out global computing environments costing millions or even billions of dollars </li></ul><ul><li>Cloud providers typically offer their infrastructure or platform </li></ul><ul><li>Frequently these &quot;As a Service&quot; offerings are are billed & consumed on a utility basis </li></ul>
  7. Cloud Consumers <ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>Cloud computing from the consumer point of view is becoming the only way to build, host and deploy a scalable web applications </li></ul>
  8. Architectural fundamentals
  9. Workload distribution
  10. The Benefits <ul><li>Cost savings, leveraging economies of scale </li></ul><ul><li>Pay for what you use </li></ul><ul><li>Resource flexibility </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid prototyping and market testing </li></ul><ul><li>Increased speed to market </li></ul><ul><li>Improved service levels and availability </li></ul><ul><li>Self-service deployment </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce lock-in and switching costs </li></ul>
  11. The Challenges <ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  12. Enterprise Barriers <ul><li>Data Security & Privacy </li></ul><ul><li>Regulatory Control (SoX, HIPPA, etc) </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of Audit, Governance & Accountability </li></ul><ul><li>Questionable Reliability & Performance </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of Management Tools </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of Integration with Internal Infrastructure </li></ul>
  13. Cloud Applications <ul><li>R&D projects. Many enterprise shops are using clouds to test new services, scalability testing, applications, and design models </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>Web-based collaboration services. Apps which often have a short lifespan and a hassle to deploy via traditional IT procurement processes. </li></ul>
  14. The Players <ul><li>Platform as a Service - led by Amazon Web Services (SQS, SDB), Salesforce.com, Akamai, Google (App Engine), Microsoft (Live), Coghead and Bungee Labs </li></ul><ul><li>Infrastructure as a Service - Larger companies including Amazon (EC2, S3) Rackspace (Mosso), Terremark and smaller players, such as Layered Technologies and Xcalibre, Enki </li></ul>
  15. The Future <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  16. Questions <ul><li>Ask me a question </li></ul><ul><li>Find the presentation on my blog: </li></ul><ul><li>www.elasticvapor.com </li></ul>
