  • 53 - Von Neumann and Barracelli60 – McCarthy (Grid) – utility based computer gridsLicklider (Clouds) - He dreamed of a global network everyone could plug into sharing programs and data.Early 1990s: Grid computing gains popularity. Computers begin to link on centralized networks and share data.1994: Web goes mainstream – Web 1.02007: P2P: BitTorrent and Skype. Microsoft, Google, IBM, and a number of universities initiated Cloud Computer research projects.2008: Web 2.0 goes mainstream. Everyone from Microsoft to Google offer enterprise scale apps over the browser. The first cloud computing events start to pop up all over the country. Virualization hits it stride2009: FBI raid- data center in Texas. Search warrant to seize a particular cabinet of equipment. Unfortunately, the hardware in that cabinet contained data for multiple companies, in addition to the one involved in the investigation. The removal of their data caused at least one of these companies to be unable to operate, and the court denied their attempt to get their data back.

    46. 46. Cloud deployment– Not all clouds are created equal<br />Types of clouds<br />Public Clouds: <br />Owned by Cloud provider<br />Private Cloud: <br />Owned by the organization <br />Internal Cloud: Hosted on-premise<br />External Cloud: Hosted by a Cloud provider<br />Public Cloud<br />Next -&gt;<br />
    47. 47. Cloud Planning<br />Mapping your walk in The Clouds<br />
    48. 48. Mapping your walk in The Clouds<br />Basic architectural elements you should understand before taking a walk in the clouds<br />Is the Org. & culture ready for The Cloud?<br />Does The Cloud add long-term value in this scenario?<br />Are the data, services, & processes well documented?<br />What initial & long term resources are needed to support them?<br />How do Cloud providers compare to these needs?<br />Are those providers compatible with existing Security, Governance, & Operational plans?<br />Should you adjust these plans? How?<br />The cloud gives technicians additional architectural options. <br />It does not give us an excuse to deploy solutions without the proper IT architecture.<br />Next -&gt;<br />
