    1. 1. Introducing Microsoft's Azure Services Platform John Stame Platform Strategy Advisor [email_address] Blog:
    2. 2. Is Cloud Computing for real? <ul><li>Here is what some leading analysts are saying: </li></ul><ul><li>Leading Analyst Firm </li></ul><ul><li>Listed Cloud Computing as one of the “Top 10 Disruptive Technologies for 2008 - 20012.  The firm calls Cloud Computing “A style of computing in which massively scalable IT-enabled capabilities are provided as a service across the Internet to multiple external customers.”  </li></ul><ul><li>Merrill Lynch </li></ul><ul><li>“ The Cloud Wars: $100+ billion at stake” (07 May 2008). It states that by 2011 the volume of cloud computing market opportunity could amount to $160bn, including $95bn in business and productivity applications (email, office, CRM, etc.) and $65bn in online advertising. </li></ul><ul><li>Forrester Research Report (March 7, 2008) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Is Cloud Computing Ready for the Enterprise” - concludes that “Cloud Computing is looking like a classic disruptive technology.”  </li></ul><ul><li>David Chappell </li></ul><ul><li>“ The attractions of cloud-based computing, including scalability and lower costs, are very real. If you work in application development, whether for a software vendor or an end user, expect the cloud to play an increasing role in your future. The next generation of application platforms is here.” </li></ul>
    3. 3. Transformational Era
    4. 4. On premises vs. in the cloud Application runs on-premises Buy my own hardware, and manage my own data center Application runs at a hoster Co-location or Managed servers Application runs using cloud services “ cloud fabric” (elastic, infini-scale) Economy of Scale Low High Control High Low
    5. 5. On premises vs. in the cloud “ Packaged” Application An application that I buy “off the shelf” and run myself “ Home Built” Application An application that I develop and run myself Hosted “ Home Built” An application that I develop myself, but run at a hoster Hosted “ Packaged” An application that I buy “off the shelf” and run at a hoster Cloud Platform An application that I develop myself, but run in the cloud “ Software as a Service” A hosted application that I buy from a vendor Build Buy On premises Cloud
