Cloud Computing Hype or Next Big Thing


Published on

Cloud computing -- a technology that “enables on-demand utilization of a shared, infinite amount of compute resources or computing power via the Internet” -- is fast becoming mainstream.

“Cost savings, reduced time to market, and rapid ROI -- these are three key factors that IT and business executives alike cite when asked about the value of cloud computing,” says Winston Damarillo, chief executive officer for G2iX, in reference to the results of the discussions among CIOs and CTOs of global enterprises located in Manila and Cebu.

  3. 3. Ready or Not: the Cloud is no “VAPOR” IT-related capabilities are now being provided “as a service” at a very rapid rate Mobile applications are taking advantage of online services for storage, processing, building relationships, and various other ways Technology R&D is shifting towards on-demand resources RP CIOs look up to Cloud Computing as Top Solution to achieve cost savings, reduced time to market, and rapid ROI Cloud Computing market to reach $150.1 Billion in 2013 - Gartner 3 Thursday, December 3, 2009
  4. 4. What exactly is the Cloud? Combination of Internet-based technologies developed to provide on demand and dynamically scalable and virtualized resources for a specific need Services could be in a form of Software Applications (SaaS), Platform and Solution Stack (PaaS), or on-demand Infrastructure (IaaS). Current players include Amazon (AWS), Google (Google App Engine), Microsoft (Azure), and Rackspace In the Philippines, we have Morph Labs But this is essentially what it is: No infrastructure - like electricity, pay for what you use; leverage web connectivity 4 Thursday, December 3, 2009

Automatic Scaling The main benefit of CLOUD COMPUTING is the provision of instant capacity and the release of that capacity when it is not needed. Morph has developed technologies and deployed an operational center to bring the benefit of cloud computing to the enterprise reliably. 5 Thursday, December 3, 2009

I ndustry-Alt ering, One- Cloud computing and open source software share a symbiotic relationship in that each is driving the growth and maturation of the other. Its combination will increase service delivery over traditional forms of software consumption, and together will drive down the costs traditionally associated with the software industry. 7 Thursday, December 3, 2009
  8. 8. Public and Private Clouds Public Clouds Infrastructure provisioned on-demand using publicly available resources Pay-per-use model Shared resources Potential Single Point of Failure if not managed properly Setup is usually ephemeral, failure strategy is essential Security of applications is a concern (because of its shared nature) Private Clouds Cloud infrastructure similar to a public cloud but setup is done on-premise and utilizes own hardware Applications can be secured as needed by organization’s IT directive Flexible to organization’s needs Still requires substantial management of hardware resources and internal skillsets Can be modeled to utilize public clouds when private cloud resources become constrained 8 Thursday, December 3, 2009
  9. 9. Morph Cloud Platform Operations Support Services Morph Labs provides a pre-built operational support services environment that can be customized for SaaS vendors. This allows software companies to transition to a SaaS model rapidly.

The Morph Application Platform (MAP) resides on distributed physical data centers called Morph Routing Centers (MRC). These centers act as “brains” for cloud management that provides the RELIABILITY and INTEGRATION service platform for cloud customers. MAP also enables hybrid deployment models.
