Cloud Services DefinedApplications or resources locatedoff-site, which are managed and accessed remotely. And now, another quick poll.
Classic InfrastructureOn-Premise – The “Old” Way• Physical server (Hardware): Raw compute resources requires CapEx for servers, routers, switches, firewalls, storage devices, etc.• Operating systems (Software ): Software licenses requires more CapEx for Windows, Linux, or Unix, etc.• End-user applications (Programs): Software licenses requires more CapEx for Act, Office 2010, Exchange, Quickbooks, Acrobat, backup software, etc.
Cloud VariationsThe “New” Way• Public Cloud: Access to a Software application as a Service: e.g. Salesforce.com, MSFT Office 365, Gmail/Google Docs• Private Cloud: Applications accessed in the same manner as the public cloud, but in a private location owned/controlled by the business• Hybrid Cloud: A mixture of on-premise and cloud solutions; the best of both worlds
