Cloud Computing And Mobility

  1. 1. Cloud Computing & Mobility<br />
  2. 2. Cloud ComputingDefinition<br />Computing in which services and storage are provided over the Internet (or "cloud").<br />
  3. 3. What is Cloud Computing?<br />Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand, like the electricity grid.<br />The term "cloud" is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network<br />Cloud computing is a paradigm shift it describes a new supplement, consumption, and delivery model for IT services based on the Internet, and it typically involves over-the-Internet provision of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources.<br />It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet.<br />It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet.<br />This frequently takes the form of web-based tools or applications that users can access and use through a web browser.<br />
  4. 4. What is Cloud Computing? Cont…<br />Most cloud computing infrastructures consist of services delivered through common centers and built on servers. Clouds often appear as single points of access for all consumers' computing needs. <br />The major cloud service providers include Microsoft,, Skytap, HP, IBM, Amazon and Google.<br />
  5. 5. What is Mobility?<br />The use of portable computing devices that can run on batteries but are not usually classified as laptops: <br /><ul><li>Portable computers
  6. 6. Tablet PCs
  7. 7. PDAs
  8. 8. Netbooks
  9. 9. Smartphones.</li></li></ul><li>Mobility<br />Smartphones…<br />Netbooks….<br />Kindle…<br />OH MY…..<br />
  10. 10. Some of the things Mobile devices are used for?<br />Social Media<br />Communication (Phone, Email, Messaging)<br />Applications (productivity, Leisure, Games)<br />PIM (Email, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks)<br />Media Consumption (News, Music, Movies)<br />
  11. 11. Types of Connectivity used on Mobile devices<br />EVDO & 3G <br />4G<br />LTE<br />WiMAX<br />
  12. 12. Types of 3G Technologies<br />EVDO, or Evolution Data Only/Evolution Data Optimized, is a 3G mobile broadband technology used by Verizon, Sprint, and Alltel that provides typical download speeds of 600-1400kbps (with bursts up to 3100kbps) - this article focuses mainly on EVDO mobile broadband. HSPA is another 3G technology that is used by AT&T and T-Mobile. 4G is the next generation of mobile broadband technology, but it's not as widely available as 3G service yet - Sprint uses a 4G technology called WiMAX that is currently being deployed, and Verizon will be deploying a 4G network using a technology called LTE in late 2010. <br />Just the Basics:EVDO stands for Evolution Data OptimizedEVDO is a 3G mobile broadband technology ("3G" simply stands for "third generation")EVDO Rev-A is the current version of EVDO available from Sprint and Verizon. EVDO Rev-0 was the original technology. Rev-A is faster than Rev-0. All of the currently available EVDO modems from Sprint and Verizon are Rev-A. Personal broadband wireless service for a wide range of customers, from business people to studentsAlways on - just like a cell phone Utilizes CDMA signalWhere EVDO isn't available, 2G/1x data capability is available everywhere you have havecellphone voice service Allows the user to be connected wherever they are, not only for email, but for downloads, large files, photos, spreadsheets, etc.<br />
  13. 13. What is 4G?<br />
  14. 14. What is LTE<br />
  15. 15. WiMAX is a 4G technology that provides wireless high-speed internet access. Much like EVDO, a 3G mobile broadband technology, WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is an alternative to internet services like dial-up, DSL, cable, and satellite. It works somewhat similarly to EVDO, in that it provides broadband access to customers wirelessly via "base stations" (towers). Since it doesn't rely on cables or phone lines to deliver its signals - it uses microwave links - deploying WiMAX to a community can be done in a matter of days. WiMAX can provide speeds over 10Mbps.<br />
  16. 16. Comparing various Mobile Technology <br />
  17. 17. How Mobile devices use the Cloud today<br />Storage (Dropbox)<br />Music (Amazon, Pandora, Slacker, GrooveShark)<br />Literature (Amazon, iBooks)<br />Movies (Amazon, Hulu, Netflix)<br />Photos (FotoFlexer, Flauntr, Flicker, Picasa, Facebook)<br />Document editing/storage (Google Docs, Office 2010, Skydrive)<br />Contacts/Calendaring (Google, Hotmail, Yahoo, Mobile Me)<br />
  18. 18. The Future of Mobility & the CloudImagine:<br />Login into iTunes/Amazon from your phone to stream all your purchased music<br />Taking a picture and it gets automatically stored in the cloud where you can print it at anytime, anywhere<br />Renting and purchasing all your video content from a cloud service<br />Renting and purchasing all your video games from a cloud service<br />Viewing all your TV content from a cloud service<br />Having access at home with no wires<br />
