  • 3. THE CLOUD COMPUTING LANDSCAPE3 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 4. Types of clouds4 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 5. Objectives of today’s session Today’s session is not: 1. A study of meteorology (clouds is nephology) 2. A services or product presentation 3. A sales pitch Today’s session is: 1. An education session on cloud computing terminology 2. A review of current industry trends 3. An encouragement for your organization to consider cloud computing strategies5 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 6. Definition of cloud computing From National Institute of Standards and Technology “A computing model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources, including networks, servers, storage, applications and services, that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.” (www.nist.gov/itl/cloud/)6 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 7. Cloud computing means more flexibility for you The next stage in the Internets evolution Computing infrastructure, applications, business processes, and personal collaboration delivered to you as a service Wherever and whenever access7 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 8. More flexibility = more control to manage your business Provides a model Addresses shortage for more Helps maximize the More time to focus of IT expertise and controllable, strategic value of CONTROL on innovation resources predictable costs of ERP ownership8 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 9. Benefits: availability, speed, and innovation 1. Easy to deploy 2. Faster to deploy 3. Pay only for what you use 4. Less in-house IT staff/costs 5. Monthly payments 6. Offers the latest functionality 7. Encourages more standardization of IT 8. Sharing systems and information simpler 9. It’s the way of the future Source: IDC9 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 10. Potential challenges: security, quality of service, and fit 1. Security 2. Performance 3. Availability 4. Hard to integrate with in- house IT 5. Not enough ability to customize 6. Cost more than on-premise 7. Bringing back in-house may be difficult 8. Regulatory requirements prohibit cloud Source: IDC 9. Not enough suppliers yet10 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential

  • 12. Essential elements lead to flexibility Faster and/or self- Elasticity provisioning and de- provisioning Application Pay-as-you-go billing Programming Interfaces model12 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 13. Essential element: Elasticity • Creating, launching, and terminating computing resources, as needed • The more resources active and available, the more elastic elasticity  Often enabled by virtualization technology13 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 14. Essential element: Provisioning • Companies or their service providers control the Networking provisioning deployment of cloud services through a defined Memory service catalog CPU Data Storage IP Addresses Databases Applications14 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 15. Essential element: Application Program Interfaces • Control APIs: allow cloud infrastructure to be added, reconfigured, or removed in real time • Data APIs: are the conduits through which data flows in and out of the cloud • Application functionality APIs: enable the functionality with which end users interact with infrastructure and data APIs  APIs will evolve as cloud offerings become more complex.15 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 16. Essential element: Billing • Cloud computing employs a usage billing model • Billing models include: - per user - per gigabyte (GB) - per server - pay per-use  Billing types will evolve billing based on the imagination of the service provider and the user.16 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 17. Oracle cloud computing: 5 essentials 1. Rapid Elasticity 2. On-Demand self-service provisioning 3. Broad network access 4. Measure service (Billing and metering of service usage) 5. Resource pooling Source: Oracle’s Achieving the Cloud Computing Vision17 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 18. THE ABC OF CLOUDS AND ITS SERVICE MODELS18 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 19. Types of clouds Public cloud: service provider Private cloud: internal or service provider Hybrid cloud: combine public and private Community cloud19 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 20. Types of cloud Resources are dynamically public clouds provisioned on a self-service basis over the Internet, via web applications and web services, from an off-site third party provider who bills on a utility computing basis. • Oracle • Amazon • Apple • VMware20 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 21. Types of cloud private clouds Offered on private networks from a provider has insight into workload and impacts to the infrastructure. Offers flexibility to customize solutions to meet security and performance requirements. • Velocity virtual private cloud • Oracle • Your company?21 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 22. Types of cloud • Some IT departments must still deliver services via hybrid cloud traditional, in-house methods. • Companies will utilize a mix of public and private cloud approaches, depending upon the business requirements of their technology environment22 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 23. Types of cloud community cloud • Organizations with similar requirements that seek to share infrastructure to realize the benefits of cloud computing • Costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud, but more than a single tenant • May offer a higher level of privacy, security, and/or policy compliance and can be economically attractive as the resources are utilized and shared in the community23 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
  • 24. Cloud Deployment Preference Change(Buyer’s Open to Broader Scope) Private Hybrid Public • Designed for, and access • Enterprise’s cloud services • Designed for a market, not a restricted to, a single portfolio includes both single enterprise enterprise (or extended private and public cloud • Open to a largely unrestricted enterprise) services universe of potential users • An internal shared resource, • Some specific services are • Customers buy at specific not a commercial offering delivered in a combination of level of abstraction (server, • IT Org is the “vendor” of the public and private models application, platform) shared/std service to its users (e.g., private cloud “bursting • Single-vendor or multi-vendor to” a public cloud service) Resource Single enterprise/ Virtual and physical (non- Multiple unrelated Isolation extended enterprise cloud) resources and enterprises (shared) (dedicated) applications Control | SLA | Specialization | Security | Agility | Price Advantage | Access | Elasticity D.I.Y. © 2009 IDC Nov-12 24

  • 34. How do I pick a Cloud Provider? • If Applications and Security are most important – Private Cloud better than Public Cloud • If Economics is more important than Applications – Public Cloud better than Private Cloud • If Cost is important – Private Cloud with an OpEx model is better than on-premise CapEx • If Resource constraints is a concern – Dynamic Application Service Provider model is best for specialized application skills • If Experience of the Provider is key – Ask for number of cloud customers, number of years serving from cloud, applications supported, and references34 November 1, 2012 Velocity Proprietary and Confidential
