CloudOps evening presentation from IBM

  1. 1. Cloud Computing The Journey to Cloud CRIM Crystal Ball Conference April, 2011 Tom Wheatley, Distinguished Engineer IBM Global Technology Services
  2. 2. Cloud computing brings together maturing technology with new deployment and delivery models to address these workloads Cloud computing: a new consumption and delivery model inspired by internet services and maturing technology capabilities Virtualization Standardization Service Automation Consolidation Elastic, Scalable Pool Self Service Ubiquitous Access Usage Metering and Billing Business Process Delivery Models Software Platform Infrastructure Deployment Models Private Cloud Public Cloud Community Cloud
  3. 3. Three models of cloud computing are emerging, co-existing and inter-connecting. Enterprise Service Integration Service Integration Traditional Enterprise IT Services Services Service Integration Public Clouds Services <ul><li>Traditional data centers & apps evolving with cloud characteristics </li></ul>Greenfield enterprise clouds for innovative solutions behind the firewall Clouds providing general consumer/business services outside the firewall Clients and Customers Innovative Business Models Community Clouds Private Cloud
  4. 4. Cost savings and faster time to value are the leading reasons why companies consider cloud Respondents could rate multiple drivers items 50% 72% 77% Improve reliability Faster time to value Reduce costs Improve system availability Pay only for what we use Hardware savings Software licenses savings Lower labor and IT support costs Lower outside maintenance costs Take advantage of latest functionality Simplify updating/upgrading Speed deployment Scale IT resources to meet needs • • • • Improve system reliability • • • To what degree would each of these factors induce you to acquire public cloud services?
