  4. 4. <ul><li>Open Source Components and Standard APIs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No hidden fees such as OS license costs </li></ul></ul>Enabling the Commercial Grid
  5. 5. <ul><li>Billing to enable utility computing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No set-up costs, credit cards accepted </li></ul></ul>Enabling the Commercial Grid
  6. 6. <ul><li>Service Level Agreements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Guaranteed uptime and compensation for downtime </li></ul></ul>Enabling the Commercial Grid
  7. 7. Grids power what has become known as Cloud Computing Enabling the Commercial Grid
  8. 8. <ul><li>Infrastructure consists of Middleware and Resources </li></ul><ul><li>Until recently all Applications ran on top of bespoke Infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>Now Infrastructure provision has become a service (IaaS) </li></ul>Infrastructure as a Service Infrastructure
  9. 9. Infrastructure Providers <ul><li>Amazon is now a major provider, together with Joyent , GoGrid and others </li></ul>Source: Amazon.com Inc
  10. 10. <ul><li>Increased efficiency in resource utilization </li></ul><ul><li>Pay for what you use - low initial investment means organic growth </li></ul><ul><li>Great for dealing with surges in demand e.g. viral campaigns </li></ul><ul><li>Still more expensive than colocation hosting </li></ul><ul><li>High degree of lock-in to a provider despite open protocols </li></ul><ul><li>Difficult to compare providers like for like; reliability and SLA issues </li></ul><ul><li>Data protection issues </li></ul>Pros and Cons

  14. 14. <ul><li>Infrastructure Providers allow for rapid development and deployment of Applications that require Processing, Bandwidth and Storage resources that can scale </li></ul><ul><li>These Apps have the opportunity to surpass incumbent players </li></ul><ul><li>Processing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>@home projects, Sun Grid </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Bandwidth </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Content Delivery Networks </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Storage </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Backup and file sharing services </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What about other types of resources in the grid? Mobile terminals, sensors, new input devices … </li></ul>Potential for Disruption
