  • 2. Who is Kate?
  • 3.  
  • 4. Cloud != Utility Cloud = Grid + (Utility * N)
    • Grid Computing: The combination of computer resources from multiple administrative domains applied to a common task.
    • Utility Computing: T he packaging of computing resources (computation, storage etc.) as a metered service similar to a traditional public utility.
    • Cloud Computing is the open market for computing resources, created when you combine multiple interoperable compute utilities into one massive grid.
    • But that is not here, and surely Cloud is here?
  • 5. UK G-Cloud: The first true instance of Cloud Computing?
    • UK public sector wants:
    • Like-for-like service comparability
    • Resources pooling from multiple providers
    • Workload pooling for peak load curtailment
    • Pay-as-you-use type billing
    • Access to cost benefits of massively automated ICT services
    • Solution: A central market for standardised ICT services (the Applications Store)
  • 6. NIST’s Cloud, on a cube
  • 7. NIST’s Private Cloud is an oxymoron
    • In G-Cloud we define a “Private Cloud” as an infrastructure dedicated to government, most likely an amalgam of several compute utilities.
    • NIST’s definitions:
      • Private Cloud : The cloud infrastructure is operated solely for an organization. It may be managed by the organization or a third party and may exist on premise or off premise.
      • Public Cloud: The cloud infrastructure is made available to the general public or a large industry group and is owned by an organization selling cloud services.
  • 8. Thanks!
