As cloud services have developed, we know that they have certain characteristics. And, if we look at both sides of the equation, the service provider and the service consumer, can start to see how recent technology advances have come together to create this new category of services. First, we see that consumers, who might be people at home, or business users or app developers, want rapid access to services, in a way that abstracts the technology away. That’s why cloud service provider use technology to create an on-demand, self service orientation to their service. Consumers want to implement technology enabled services quickly, which can be fulfilled through highly automated provisioning capabilities. Think of an iPhone app, or adding a FaceBook app… it takes just a few seconds. With infrastructure as a service, you can provision a virtual environment in a matter of minutes. Consumers of course want to drive down costs, specifically cap-ex costs. In response, service providers can leverage economies of scale within their market, absorbing the cap-ex and delivering in an economical viable way. Consumer want to pay-as-you-go… maybe in increments of days, weeks or months. Or, per transaction. That’s where billing, metering and variable pricing capabilities come into pay Consumers can access the internet from virtually anywhere, and on a myriad of devices, so location independence and high availability become really important. Consumers are driving clearly defined value.. For example, when you use Snapfish to host, share and print your photos, the value is realized for the entire service. You pay for the print, the sharing is “free” but supported by merchandising, the whole value proposition is clear to the user. This is driving specialize markets, which also play to the provider’s advantage, again benefiting from economies of scale Consumers want to understand the service level agreement. Maybe not terribly important on a social network, but very important when you get into business applications. So policy-driven management becomes foundational to a service provider’s capability And finally, you have the issue of trust… if you’re a service consumer, you want to fully understand the terms of security… so identity, access rights, data security are all critical capabilities for a service provider to manage.
NOTE: this slide has animations We’ve seen for many years that apps and utility infrastructure have been offered over the internet, typically with a contract–orientation, longer term commitment. Given that, What’s new about cloud? What problems does it uniquely solve? <click> First, it is accelerating the shift from a technology orientation to a service orientation - existing technologies that are packaged and delivered as a service, with an as-needed consumption model. So now lots of people in business have rapid access , through any internet device, to services that were otherwise unavailable, or unaffordable, or just too technical for most people to use. A good example of this is Amazon’s EC2 … Second, a new capabilities are a result of Web 2.0 and a new class of massively scalable applications. Like eBay. Salesforece.com, and NetSuite (an HP partnership). So now, service providers can reach a vast audience, new markets, much faster than before. And service users, the consumers, have access to capabilities that might have been too expensive or complex – out of reach, like a ERP application for SMB. Businesses benefit from lower cost, and much faster time to market with the advent of mmflexible consumption of cloud applications. Third, the future of cloud poses entirely new connections and technology value. Imagine if massive amounts of data could be easily accessed by a variety of services. The data becomes more contextually relevant. For example, if every participant in a food supply chain could stream certain types of non-proprietary data about their part in the processes, you could better search massive amounts of data to identify, for example, the source of a salmonella outbreak. Right now, integrating supply chain software from one to another is difficult, it’s real expensive. And, hard to change.
