  3. Which is better? 1 gallon of fuel -> ¼ ton of „freight‟; 20 miles 1 gallon of fuel -> 1 ton of freight; 436 miles Can goes anywhere there is a road Can mostly go from A to B Ready to go anytime Leaves 2x day at 9.12am and 11.14pm High Control Low Low Economy of Scale High
  4. This is not new… Build vs. Buy High Control Low Low Economy of Scale High
  5. This is new… On premises vs. in the cloud High Control Low Low Economy of Scale High
  6. On premises vs. in the cloud Application runs Application runs Application runs on-premises at a hoster using cloud services Buy my own Co-location “cloud fabric” hardware, and or (elastic, manage my own Managed infini-scale) data center servers High Control Low Low Economy of Scale High
  7. On premises vs. in the cloud “Packaged” Hosted “Software as a Buy Application “Packaged” Service” An application An application A hosted that I buy “off that I buy “off application that Build vs. Buy the shelf” and the shelf” and I buy from a run myself run at a hoster vendor “Home Built” Hosted Cloud Application “Home Built” Platform An application An application An application that I develop that I develop that I develop Build and run myself myself, but run myself, but run at a hoster in the cloud On premises Cloud
  8. All acceptable options (trade off) “Packaged” Hosted “Software as a Buy Application “Packaged” Service” Maximum An application that I buy “off the An application that I buy “off the A hosted application that Build vs. Buy Control shelf” and run shelf” and then I buy from a myself run at a hoster vendor “Home Built” Hosted Cloud Platform Application “Home Built” Maximum application An An application Economy of Scale An application that I develop that I develop that I develop myself, but run Build and run myself myself, but run at in the cloud a hoster On premises On premises vs. Cloud Cloud

  11. More than “build vs. buy” and hosting location Data Consistency Share & Reuse Security & Privacy Customizability High Control Cloud On-Premises Economy of Scale High Ease of Provisioning Global Reach Partitioning & Redundancy Data Availability
  12. Consistency vs. Availability (ACID vs. BASE) ACID BASE – Atomicity – Basically Available – Consistency – Soft state – Isolation – Eventually consistent – Durability • Focus on “commit” • Availability first; best effort • Conservative (pessimistic) • Aggressive (optimistic)
  13. CAP (Consistency, Availability, Partition) Theorem At most two of these properties for any shared-data system A Consistency + Availability C • High data integrity P • Single site, cluster database, LDAP, xFS file system, etc. • 2-phase commit, data replication, etc. Consistency + Partition C A • Distributed database, distributed locking, etc. P • Pessimistic locking, minority partition unavailable, etc. Availability + Partition C A • High scalability P • Distributed cache, DNS, etc. • Optimistic locking, expiration/leases, etc. “Towards Robust Distributed Systems”, Dr. Eric A. Brewer, UC Berkeley
  14. Spectrum of Choices Extend existing Deploy Complete Compose New Application On-Premise Application Application in the Cloud from Cloud Services
  15. ™ Service Workflow Database Analytics Identity Contacts Bus Access Reporting Devices Control Compute Storage Manage
  16. Cloud services operating system that provides on-demand compute and storage capabilities to host, scale, and manage applications Compute Services Scalable and reliable Web applications 64-bit hosting service in the cloud  .NET 3.5 SP1, managed code, ASP.NET, IIS 7, SOAP/REST/XML, PHP, Ruby, Python  Security supported by flexible Code Access Security policies  Small runtime API supports logging and local scratch storage Storage Services Simple data storage for cloud-based applications  Blobs, tables, and queues; local and remote REST-based access to data  Authenticated access and triple replication Management Services Manage the applications, not infrastructure  Advanced tracing & logging – monitor compute, storage, and bandwidth  Dynamically upgrade applications without downtime  Resource usage and performance insights; monitoring & metering Development Tools Model and execute business logic and service interactions  Complete offline environment, including compute and storage services  Visual Studio add-in enables local debugging (Eclipse soon)
  17. Highly scalable and Internet-facing distributed database services in the cloud for storing structured and unstructured data, and processing relational queries Service Bus Exchange messages between loosely coupled, composite applications  Connectivity to on-premises applications; secure, federated firewall-friendly messaging; simple, connected pub-sub eventing; extension of WCF  Federated namespace – shared, hierarchical, Internet-accessible URL  Service registry – publish service endpoints, lightweight, hierarchical, RSS-based discovery  Relay and connectivity – NAT traversal, pull-mode message delivery, Web service intermediary, WS-*/SOAP, REST Access Control Service Rules-driven application access control to users across organizations  Security Token Service (STS) – User name/password, Windows CardSpace, X.509 certificate, 3rd-party STS-issued SAML token, WS-Security, WS-Federation  Each .NET Services solution has a private, isolated STS; backing identity infrastructure for all services published within that solution’s Service Bus namespace  Claims-based rules-driven authorization – configured via claim mappings Workflow Service Model and execute business logic and service interactions  Reliable and scalable cloud runtime environment for user-defined declarative workflows  Extends Windows Workflow Foundation (.NET 3.5) to the cloud  Activities optimized for sending, receiving, and manipulating HTTP and Service Bus messages  Deploy, manage and track running workflow instances using tools and APIs
  18. Highly scalable and Internet-facing distributed database services in the cloud for storing structured and unstructured data, and processing relational queries SQL Data Services Internet-facing database built on SQL Server relational database  Data storage – blobs, flexible, structured, birth to archival, multiple consistency levels  Data Processing – filters, aggregates, user-defined logic, online-offline indexing  Data Delivery – network proximity aware, locate closest static-content copies, spanning trees for live-content, failure resiliency Scalable, Flexible, Reliable, and Secure High-availability database, scale as needed and without limits  Data partitions limited to single node on cluster – efficient replication and load balancing  Geo-replication and transactional consistency of data across multiple copies  Geo-location configuration helps protect against latency and improve response time  HTTPS/SSL support; built on SQL Server security infrastructure Developer Agility Standards-based interface and familiar language support  Access runtimes through standards-based interfaces and Web services – SOAP and REST  Perform CRUD operations with authorities, containers, and entities  Relational queries via text-based queries, LINQ, typed data in XML wire format  Simple filtering, retrieval of complete entities, full-text search, paging queries  Flexible data model, no schema required
  19. A set of building blocks for handling user data and application resources, and extensible components to build rich social applications and consumer experiences Live Framework Extensible components to build rich consumer services  Mesh Services – build applications that span across the web, devices, apps, and services o User – Mesh management and sharing resources across multiple users o Device – facilities for managing the collection of heterogeneous devices; relationship, status, security o Synchronization – data and metadata synchronization framework across applications, devices, and cloud o Application – facilities for managing the configuration, deployment, and versioning of applications  Identity Services – manage identities with associated services; delegated authentication  Directory Services – manage relationships between identities, data, devices, and apps  User-Data Storage Services – manage user-centric information; extensible data types  Communication and Presence Services – transport infrastructure for transient and persistent state management between applications and devices  Search Services – facilities for building search capailities for web sites and applications  Geospatial Services – geocoding/reverse geocoding, routing, search, mapping data Development Platform Uniform way for programming Live Services from any platform, language, application or device  Exposes RESTful programming model for live resources  Protocol based – open standards usage: HTTP, XML, ATOM, RSS  Resource Model: unified model across Live  Symmetric client/cloud programming model  CRUD/Query, triggers and SPROC based interaction model  Libraries: Rich client libraries (.NET, Silverlight, JavaSript etc.)
