What is Cloud and what are the best practices?

  1. 1. WHAT IS CLOUD?
  2. 2. AGENDA  Public, private & hybrid cloud  Best practices in cloud  Cloud cost optimization  Future technology trends
  3. 3. PUBLIC, PRIVATE & HYBRID CLOUD DEPLOYMENT MODELS Public Cloud Private Cloud Hybrid Cloud Community Cloud Mix of on-premises, private cloud and public cloud services Cloud infrastructure dedicated for only one customer Cloud infrastructure that’s available for everyone Cloud infrastructure shared amongst multiple organizations
  4. 4. Public Cloud Highly cost effective Businesses have access to computer infrastructure Private Cloud Provides control and responsibility Enhanced levels of security and privacy Hybrid Cloud Provides flexibility Ability to scale to the public cloud Community Cloud Provides a complete cloud solution Each business has its own private cloud space PUBLIC, PRIVATE & HYBRID CLOUD CHARACTERISTICS OF EACH CLOUD
  5. 5. PUBLIC, PRIVATE & HYBRID CLOUD ✓ Well suited for hosting development platforms or web browsers, for big data processing that places heavy demands on computer resources, and for companies that do not have advanced security concerns Public Cloud ✓Often used by government agencies, financial institutions, any other mid- to large-size organizations with business-critical operations seeking enhanced control over their environment Private Cloud ✓Suitable for businesses with a spike in demand such as in retail business where there might be seasonal events and they can operate in public cloud to tap on additional computing resources Hybrid Cloud ✓Attractive option for companies in the health, financial or legal spheres that are subject to strict regulatory compliance Community Cloud When to use which cloud?
  6. 6. BEST PRACTICES IN CLOUD TOP 3 CHALLENGES GOING ON CLOUD Lack of skills Cybersecurity Cultural resistance 1 2 3 How do we ensure that data stored on the cloud is secure?
  7. 7. BEST PRACTICES IN CLOUD PUBLIC CLOUDVS ON-PREMISE DATA CENTRE On-premise data centre Requires greater time and effort on securing on-premise data Network is at risk of physical access by unauthorised users, especially insider threats e.g. staff Hackers may find ways to exploit flaws in on-premise systems, such as through phishing emails to collect employees’ passwords Public Cloud Public cloud providers’ profitability and reputation depend on ensuring that customers’ data remains secure Data in the cloud may be stored on a server physically located anywhere in the world, making a physical attack much less likely Fewer vulnerabilities as cloud providers are quick to fix issues to keep data protected
  8. 8. BEST PRACTICES IN CLOUD- WHY SHOULD SMES MOVE TO CLOUD? • Pay per use is ideal for organisations who are growingFlexibility • Cloud protects and backs up data from any possible data disasterSecurity • Zero capital expenditure feeCost Optimization • Ease of scaling up or down depending on your requirementScalability • Can be at work anytime, anywhereMobility
  9. 9. BEST PRACTICES IN CLOUD 1 Hire the best person if you can afford. If not, partner with a local company who understands how to help with your move from current infrastructure to cloud. 2 Don’t believe that everything can go into the cloud. Understand what your business needs. Don’t follow the move to cloud blindly.
  10. 10. CLOUD COST OPTIMIZATION TOP 4 FACTORS IN UNOPTIMIZED CLOUD COST • Idle resources1 • Oversizing2 • Zombie assets3 • Under leveraging RIs4
  11. 11. CLOUD COST OPTIMIZATION HOW TO REDUCE CLOUD COSTS Identify unused and completely unattached resources and remove themTotal visibility of business assets Utilize heatmaps to establish start and stop times or leverage automation to schedule instances to start and stop, optimizing costs Starting and stopping non-productionVMs on a schedule Select the lowest cost resources which fulfil the technical needs as Cloud provides the elasticity to increase the size if needed Pay-as-you-go Analyze computing services and modify them to the most efficient size Rightsizing,upgrading and migrating data
