  • the days of big mainframes / Solaris 2
  • Still in the days of big mainframes / Solaris 2It’s all about lock in – certified stacks
  • Lots of free softwareLamp running everywhereMysql takes offOracle 9i still revolutionary
  • The bubble bursts and no longer can we order dogfood online and have it shipped to our door.But something happened – enterprises realized that they relied on technology that could one day go out of business
  • Enterprises adopt a new Strategy – one that supports flexibility and agility in softwareHow many people remember the first open source deployment they were a part of?Who installed some variation of Lamp?
  • The Rise of X86 in the data center:Vertically scaled stacks were being replaced with commodity X86 hardware
  • Massive amount of data, massive data center utilization1 to 1 workloads
  • Discuss new challenges, management domainsMany to 1 but no orchestrationDifferent hypervisors did different things
  • Nist definition of cloud:DynamicOrchestratedMeasureableOn Demand Self Service
  • Still in the days of big mainframes / Solaris 2It’s all about lock in – certified stacks
  • Lots and lots of data, lots and lots of infrastructure powered in part by lots and lots of open source software.
  • Get metrics for facebook infrastructure
  • Still in the days of big mainframes / Solaris 2Not only did you have
  • Still in the days of big mainframes / Solaris 2Not only did you have
  • Vendor lock in at an end.API’s are the new standard anti vendor lock in toolCompanies will compete on supportability and features
  • What if software could deterministically power up/down infrastructureWhat if hardware could self replicate compute / storage based on software thresholds?This is DCaaS, this is the future

    3. 3. In the beginning―Hello everybody out there using minix —I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big andprofessional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones..‖ -Linus TorvaldsFree Unix!―Starting this Thanksgiving I am going to write a complete Unix-compatiblesoftware system called GNU (for Gnus Not Unix), and give it away free(1)to everyone who can use it. Contributions of time, money, programs andequipment are greatly needed‖. -Richard Stallman
