Emerging Technology in the Cloud! Real Life Examples. Pol Mac Aonghusa


Published on

Set up in March 2008, the Dublin Cloud Center was created by IBM Software Group to provide a real-life laboratory for IBM Cloud Computing. Since then the Dublin Center has engaged around the world in delivery, development and research on the Cloud. A broad range of IBM, Client & Research projects provide a real-life insight into IBM 'Smart Infrastructure' in action.
Pol will provide a range of experiences and insights into Cloud Computing – from a practitioner's perspective. In this respect, Pol brings a unique, 'hands-on' perspective to IBM Cloud Computing capability and how it is being used in 'the wild'. This workshop is an opportunity for discussion and debate at a deep, paractical & technical level that will compliment the other workshops. The intention of the workshop is to illustrate IBM Cloud Computing in action!
In addition, Pol will also discuss emerging technologies using the Cloud platform and architecture in research and development projects in the Dublin Center. An interesting range of projects from High-performance, Pervasive & Mobile Computing coupled with research into topics such as active energy & green computing in the Cloud will provide insights into some of the next generation of solutions to use Cloud Computing.

  3. 3. 06/09/09 What is Cloud Computing? “ The key characteristics of the cloud are the ability to scale and provision computing power dynamically in a cost efficient way and the ability of the consumer (end user, organization or IT staff) to make the most of that power without having to manage the underlying complexity of the technology . The cloud architecture itself can be private (hosted within an organization’s firewall) or public (hosted on the Internet).” Source: Monitor & Manage Services & Resources Cloud Administrator Datacenter Infrastructure Service Catalog, Component Library Service Consumers Component Vendors/ Software Publishers Publish & Update Components, Service Templates IT Cloud Access Services

  10. 10. Implementing a Cloud Strategy requires decisions ... Costs Economies of scale only go so far, unless customer is willing to trade (data, advertising views, ...) for services Culture Trust, chargeback, sharing Security & Privacy Weak or non-existent perimeter, Data provenance, Service/Data Location Scalability Parallel processing, no problem; sequential processing, different story Connection Only as good as the Internet, unless you pay to &quot;harden&quot; your connection Service Management Technologies & best practices immature High Availability For workloads that are stateless, no problem; for stateful workloads, same issue as enterprises
