The Real Promise of Cloud Storage

  1. 1. the real promise of cloud storage terry jones terry@fluidinfo.com @terrycojones
  2. 2. using the cloud for regular storageoffers only linear benefits
  3. 3. linear accumulation of value
  4. 4. this is howwe typically do open!
  5. 5. cloud storage offers somethingmuchmore interesting...
  6. 6. the possibility ofshared (writable) storage
  7. 7. 1information is more valuable when stored in context
  8. 8. post-it notes: a distributed asynchronousinformation storewith a wonderful user interface
  9. 9. what if applications could also store data in context? an example:tickery.net, wemet.at, tunkrank
  10. 10. do the math!
  11. 11. the friendly face of nuclear data
  12. 12. shared writable storage allows unexpected data combination (boom!) value from search augmentation personalization dynamic organization
  13. 13. but shared storage also allows...
  14. 14. 2 the evolution ofasynchronous data protocols
  15. 15. 2 the evolution ofasynchronous data protocols da da!!
  16. 16. asynchronous data protocol
  17. 17. asynchronous data protocol storage
  18. 18. inter-building communication via post-it notes
  19. 19. read-only
  20. 20. read-only read-write
  21. 21. tear-off strips
  22. 22. evolution of conventionasynchronousdata protocol
  23. 23. evolution of convention
  24. 24. evolution of convention
  25. 25. evolution of convention@addressing, #hashtags, RT
  26. 26. ok, humans can do itwhat about applications?
  27. 27. we’ve already seen an example:tickery.net, wemet.at, tunkrank not aware of one another weren’t anticipated didn’t ask for permission don’t wait for each other just share storage and a convention
  28. 28. anyone can play
  29. 29. anyone can playsimply follow the convention
  30. 30. anyonecan play
  31. 31. no one gets to set the rules
  32. 32. people and applications can do what they want
  33. 33. other advantages conventions can be extended (without harm) biologically fit conventions flourish arriving late is ok
  34. 34. final example tim o’reilly:“where is the web 2.0 address book?”

  44. 44. conclusion: the real promise of the cloud is shared writable storage which enables 1. information storage in context (making it more useful and valuable) and 2. the evolution of asynchronous data protocols(so applications can communicate through data)
