  4. 4. Introduction to Cloud Computing
  5. 5. Traditional Model Cloud Computing Model Proprietary internal IT resources Remote, shared services Company A Company B Internet Company A Company B
  6. 6. Cloud Computing trends, benefits…
  7. 7. Technology Hype Cycle 2010 (Gartner) 2009 2010 2008 2007
  8. 8. Google Trends Cloud computing, Grid computing, Cluster computing
  9. 9. Some real examples…
  10. 10. Pizzas from the Cloud… • Availability is a critical requirement • Spikes in demand • Optimize computing capacity while being able to handle peak demand SOLUTION:
  11. 11. Brewing customer feedback • Build an online community to engage with customers and employees dynamically • Required community management tools to track and implement the best ideas SOLUTION:
  12. 12. Real-estate in Cloud • Procuring and installing servers or upgrades are distraction • Difficult to anticipate hardware demand • Unanticipated hardware failures leads to terrible impact on productivity SOLUTION:
  13. 13. Location-based commerce • View map of your location, and surrounding businesses & services • Discover what's new, what's on sale, at which stores around you • Locate nearest bus stops, MRT stations, taxi stands; access real-time estimates of next bus arrival times SOLUTION:
  14. 14. Different types of services…
  15. 15. Three major kinds of Cloud services
  16. 16. Challenges in Cloud Computing…
  17. 17. Challenges… • Requires a constant Internet connection: – No internet means no access to even your own documents • Features might be limited: – This situation is bound to change – For example, you can do a lot more with Microsoft PowerPoint than with Google Presentation's web-based offering. – The basics are similar, but the cloud application lacks many of PowerPoint's advanced features. COURTESY:
  18. 18. Challenges… • Stored data might not be secure: – How secure is the cloud? – Can unauthorized users gain access to your confidential data? – Only time will tell if your data is secure in the cloud. • Stored data can be lost: – Theoretically, data stored in the cloud is safe, replicated across multiple machines. – But data loss can happen COURTESY:
  19. 19. Getting started in Cloud Computing..
  20. 20. Getting started in Cloud Computing… 1. Know the different options available to you 2. Understand that scaling is a skill, not a default 3. Implement a disaster plan 4. Don’t be naïve 5. Budget for your specific use-case 6. Choose a cloud provider on your needs, not its popularity 7. Remember: some applications are not good fits for cloud 8. Think outside of the box COURTESY:
  21. 21. Top 250 players in Cloud
  22. 22. Future of Cloud Computing…
  23. 23. Numbers!!! • By 2011 cloud computing market will reach $160 billion. • The number of physical servers in the World today: 50 million. • By 2013, approximately 60% of server workloads will be virtualized • 50% of the 8 million servers sold every year end up in data centers • The data centers of the dot-com era consumed 1-2 MW Today data center facilities require 20 MW, - 10 times as much as a decade ago • Google currently controls 2% of all servers ( around 1 million) with it saying it plans to have upwards of 10 million servers in one decade • 98% of the market is controlled by everyone else. COURTESY:
  24. 24. Cloud computing future in India • Cloud computing in India to grow 40 pc by 2014: IDC study 2-DECEMBER 2010 • Google- world's largest search engine administrator- is pinning hopes on the growing cloud computing market in India with plans to double its engineering headcount in the country in next two years – Economic times, 11-NOVEMBER-2010 • Around three lakh more IT jobs will be created in India around cloud computing by 2015 – Businessline, 18-NOVEMBER 2010 • Wipro Infotech, is exploring avenues to enter the cloud computing gaming space in India soon – 13-NOVEMBER-2010 • 76 per cent enterprises in India want to virtualize and adopt cloud computing in the next one and a half year – VmWare survey, 19-NOVEMBER-2010
