  5. 5. Cloud Landscape – Webscale Cloud Webscale Clouds  International: AWS, Rackspace, Korea Telecom  AU: CloudCentral, Ninefold, OrionVM  Typically Xen based (lower cost)  Typically fast, automated provisioning  4-8x lower cost than ‘Enterprise Cloud’  Best suited to ‘web scale’ and ‘green field’ apps  Higher growth than Legacy / Enterprise Cloud  Typically, dynamic, ‘peaky’ usage profile
  6. 6. Cloud Landscape – Enterprise / Legacy Cloud Legacy / Enterprise Clouds  AU: Telstra, BrennanIT, Harbour, etc  Typically VCE based (higher cost)  Typically slower, non-automated provisioning  4-8x higher cost than ‘Webscale’ cloud  Best suited to legacy applications / highly specialized configurations  Lower growth than Webscale clouds  Typically steady-state usage profile
