  3. 3. What is Cloud Computing? Some have called cloud computing, “stupid”, “marketing hype”, a new term for “everything that we already do” While the cloud is a natural outgrowth of “what we already do,” e.g., the Internet – there are new ideas and capabilities to cloud computing and storage that will provide new business models for the future Not much difference to the consumer A lot of difference and opportunity to service providers 3 © Novell, Inc.

  5. 5. To Use the Cloud, Virtualization is Not Enough • Heavy use of virtualization, but being virtualized is not enough – IP address usage – Auto discovery – Securing the process • Moving enterprise workloads to the cloud is more than just virtualization – need storage and content – Where is your storage and content? – Content security at rest and in use 5 © Novell, Inc.

  15. 15. The Cloud is Usable Today • Just don't expect it to work like your data center – Think, “provision service not virtual image” – Think, “disparate clouds” ** Don't make physical assumptions ** • Run experiments first to get it right • Evaluate your preparedness to accept the risk 15 © Novell, Inc.

  18. 18. How the Cloud is being advanced • Cloud started out as a way to make revenue on unused capacity • Now a business in its own right – Still monetizing unused capacity – Clouds being built specific to market cloud capabilities – MSP and hosting providers moving to cloud technology to provide easier use of resources and incremental revenue – Enterprise using cloud technology to implement departmental “charge-back” • Opex vs. Capex 19 © Novell, Inc.
