A patterns-based approach to the cloud

  1. 1. A patterns-based approach to the cloud Dustin Amrhein damrhei@us.ibm.com @damrhein
  2. 2. We need a better way manage application environments  Setting up meaningful application environments takes too long  Recreating or migrating application environments is too hard  Sharing infrastructure resources limited by the first two problems
  3. 3. Virtualization can help  Virtualization eliminates manual installation steps  Advanced virtualization eliminates some of the configuration/integration steps  OVF plays a role here by providing standards- based mechanisms for passing in activation information
  4. 4. Enhancing virtualization User customizations Middleware software Operating System Activation Engine Transforms environment’s personality based on user/system input
  5. 5. But virtualization is not enough  Middleware application environments often require more than a single VM  In this case, getting a VM fast only gets you so far  You still retain responsibility for orchestration of inter-VM configuration
  6. 6. Patterns bridge the gap
  7. 7. Patterns bring value  Patterns (templates, assemblies, etc.) build on virtual images to provide a complete representation of your environment  Patterns are deployable units  Patterns encapsulate and automate installation, configuration, and integration
  8. 8. Resources  Check out IBM cloud resources: http://bit.ly/ibmDWCloud  Contact me via email:damrhei@us.ibm.com  Or on Twitter: @damrhein  Or on my blog: http://bit.ly/dustinBlog
