  3. 3. Some History  Problem with Grid Computing / Parallel Computing  High admin cost  Difficult to use from lay users perspective  Users still have to be aware of the physical hardware layer - # of nodes, etc.  Cloud Computing  Users are transparent to the physical hardware through hardware virtualization  It scale-in / scale-out based on pre-defined usage criteria. Administration cost is decreased.  IT resources are better utilized.

  5. 5. Cost Structure of Public Cloud Service • 2 Points to Note: Initial fixed cost is switched from users to service providers As users become increasingly rely on server access, it is cheaper for users to implement their own IT infrastructure Cost Structure of Public Cloud and Traditional IT Expense 0 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 No. of Users ITExpense($) Traditional Cloud FixedCost
  6. 6. Why AMZN provides Public Cloud Services?  From service providers’ viewpoints, it has high initial fixed cost, so why are they still doing it?  The players are: Google, Amazon, IBM  They have already built a hugh IT infrastructure to handle their peak load.  Internally, AMZN want to utilize their IT resources to save their IT expenditure  Cloud Service solves their own problem. And they could take advantage of their existing IT infrastructure by make business use of it => Public Cloud Services is born
  7. 7. Business Model on Cloud Services 1/2  Public Cloud  Software as a Service (SaaS) – charge by app. usage/no. of accounts  Google App for Enterprises  Saleforce.com  Platform as a Service (PaaS) – charge by partnership with system integrators, app. developed on the platform  Google App Engine  Windows Azure Platform (include SQL services, sharePoint services, Dynamics CRM)  Amazon SimpleDB  Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – charge by usage (eg. Bandwidth, amount of data accessed/month)  Amazon S3, Amazon EC2
  8. 8. Business Model on Cloud Services 2/2  Private Cloud  Offer solutions of hardware setup, software installation, consultation for corporates, data-centers  Turnover rate is fast  All major cloud service providers are entering and offering solutions in this area  Reasons include better data privacy, backup policy could be controlled by corporations  Future: Public Cloud + Private Cloud => Hybrid Cloud
  9. 9. About ClusterTech  CLUSTERTECH was founded in 2000.  CLUSTERTECH headquarters in the Hong Kong Science Park  CLUSTERTECH has 70 professional staffs with advanced degrees (16 Ph.D.s) in science and engineering and reputable clients in financial and government sectors.  CLUSTERTECH is a one-stop provider offering high performance computing and business intelligence solutions, through in-house developed CPE, CGE, and CHESS platforms.
  10. 10. Client Lists HSBC  Different artificial intelligence modelling techniques were developed to forecast capital flows and market directions in foreign exchange. Hong Kong Observatory  Provided consulting and software implementation on its numerical weather forecast platforms Ping An Insurance  Provided data cleansing and mining solution to Ping An Insurance on their insurance customer database
  11. 11. Business Case: Bank of China  Problem and Requirements:  Fast access on market data  High computational job, lots of batch processing  Required system stability and high availability  Scale-up and scale-out with minimal admin cost  A customized solution with Clouds Architecture:  Take advantage of our expertise in parallel computing  Users do not see the physical hardware layers, only “the cloud”  Empowers client with scalable software (SaaS) and infrastructure (IaaS)
  12. 12. Overall Cloud Applications
  13. 13. Application I: Low Latency Market Data Service e.g. Reuters, Bloomberg, HKEX…
  14. 14. Application II: Computational Service
  15. 15. Application III: Parallel Monte Carlo Sim.
  16. 16. Application IV: Middle Office Data Backup
  17. 17. Business Case Summary  A customized solution with clouds architecture:  Software  Low latency market data access  An excel module to assign job for parallel monte carlo simulation on the cloud for fair pricing  Infrastructure  Users could assign computational intensive jobs to the cloud  Users could take advantage of database stored in the cloud for safe storage
