Cloud Computing has grown from being a disruptive technology used by only researchers and startups, to being a choice for projects at large and established organizations. In this presentation, Brian defines what Cloud Computing is, describes the three categories of Cloud Computing offerings (SaaS, IaaS, PaaS), examines the current offerings of the major infrastructure providers (AWS, Google, Azure), and looks at cloud migration strategies and challenges.

Your Move to the Cloud: Everything You Need to Know

  1. 1. Everything You Need to Know
  2. 2. I am DevOps Manager at Resolver @brianmertens brian.mertens@resolver.com
  3. 3. ▪ What is Cloud Computing ▪ Delivery Models ▪ Industry Landscape ▪ Products and Features ▪ Benefits and Risks ▪ Migration Strategies
  4. 4. noun Definition: The practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or computer.
  5. 5. ▪ Internet-based ▪ Shared resources ▪ On-demand ▪ Measured
  6. 6. There is no cloud, it’s just someone else’s computer. -A. Wisenheimer
  7. 7. Software as a Service Platform as a Service Infrastructure as a Service
  8. 8. ▪ “Consume” ▪ Simplest ▪ Sign-up and go ▪ Examples: Dropbox, Salesforce, Resolver
  9. 9. ▪ “Build” ▪ More Control ▪ You code your application ▪ Vendor does the rest ▪ Examples: Heroku, force.com
  10. 10. ▪ “Deploy” ▪ Most Control ▪ Most Complexity ▪ Architecture, networking, failover – up to you ▪ Examples: AWS, Azure, Google Cloud
  11. 11. the capacity of 14 closest competitors market share in revenue in profit YoY growth
  12. 12. ▪ Instance types ▪ Memory ▪ CPU ▪ GPU ▪ Hardware, licensing by the hour ▪ Reserved instances
  13. 13. ▪ Bandwidth ▪ Virtual Networks ▪ Managed Firewalls ▪ Load Balancers ▪ Content Distribution
  14. 14. ▪ Highly Available ▪ Cross-zone redundancy (within a region) ▪ Cross-region redundancy (optional) ▪ Data Sovereignty ▪ 99.999999999% Durability ▪ 99.99% Availability
  15. 15. ▪ Highly Available ▪ Cross-zone redundancy, replication ▪ Automatically patched ▪ Pay by the hour, licenses included ▪ MySQL, Postgres, MS-SQL, Oracle ▪ Easily scale for storage and throughput ▪ NoSQL options
  16. 16. ▪ Auto Scaling ▪ Containerization ▪ AI / Machine Learning
  17. 17. ▪ No upfront costs ▪ CapEx becomes OpEx ▪ Don’t need to build for peak usage ▪ Redundancy is often free ▪ GE Oil & Gas reduced IT costs by 52% ▪ Capital One moved from 8 Data Centers to 3
  18. 18. ▪ Reduce barriers ▪ Encourage experimentation ▪ Fail Fast
  19. 19. ▪ Power ▪ A/C ▪ Network infrastructure ▪ Patching
  20. 20. ▪ Shared Responsibility Model ▪ Security “In” The Cloud ▪ Security “Of” The Cloud ▪ Account credentials must be protected
  21. 21. More secure in the public cloud than in our own data centers. -Rob Alexander, CIO, Capital One
  22. 22. ▪ Multiple Regions ▪ Multiple Availability Zones ▪ Redundancy: power, network, storage ▪ Still, you must plan for failure
  23. 23. ▪ Infrastructure As Code ▪ Automated Provisioning ▪ “Software Is Eating The World” ▪ What was hardware is now software
  24. 24. ▪ “Not Invented Here” Syndrome ▪ Change can be scary
  25. 25. Move resources one for one Keep basic architecture, use managed services where available Move to SAAS Redesign applications from ground up for cloud Discover what you don’t need, turn it off
  26. 26. ▪ “Lift And Shift” ▪ One-to-one mapping ▪ Fastest path to cost reductions ▪ Allows your team to gain skills, familiarity ▪ Easier to refactor after initial move
  27. 27. ▪ “Lift, Tinker And Shift” ▪ Keep your basic architecture ▪ Adjust your availability ▪ Upgrade versions ▪ Move to managed services, e.g. SQL ▪ Adopt open source
  28. 28. ▪ Move to SAAS ▪ “That was easy”
  29. 29. ▪ Design and implement new solutions ▪ Take advantage of cloud-native options ▪ Most expensive route ▪ Most rewarding
  30. 30. ▪ Discover unneeded applications ▪ Turn them off
  31. 31. ▪ Cloud is the new normal ▪ Statistics vary, trend is clear ▪ Cloud-first policies will become cloud-only ▪ Leading-edge services will be cloud only
  32. 32. By 2020, a Corporate "No-Cloud" Policy Will Be as Rare as a "No-Internet" Policy Is Today -Gartner
