Let’s Get Cirrus About Personal Clouds

  1. 1. Let’s Get Cirrus About Personal Clouds pCloud & VRM Day 21 October 2013, Mountain View, CA T.Rob Wyatt - t.rob@ioptconsulting.com and @tdotrob And yes, I know those are not cirrus clouds. But I took the photo and I own the rights. These are: My. Personal. Clouds.
  2. 2. IBM 4381 - 1987 • • • • Up to Dual 32-Bit CPU Up to 64k Cache Up to 32-Bit I/O Bus Up to 3 MBs I/O Channels • • • • 15 MHz CPU (68 ns cycle) Math co-processor available Up to 64 MB memory $890,000 and up I started my career in IT as a Computer Operator on one of these.

  3. 3. Motorola Razr Maxx HD - 2013 • • • • • Dual 32-Bit CPU 32k L1 Cache 1MB L2 Cache 1GB RAM 32-Bit I/O Bus • • • • • 1.7 GHz CPU (1.7 ns cycle) 60 MBs USB 2.0 Graphics co-processor Up to 64 GB memory $199 and up I currently own one of these.

  6. 6. Evolutionary software model Vacuum Tube Today’s data & control model… Transistor Integrated Circuit VLSI …was designed on the constraints of yesteryear’s technology. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 6
  7. 7. Evolutionary legacy • Business software run by business, for business. • Your data is held by the business for their use. • You have no say over what is collected or how it is used. When all this started, it could not have worked any other way. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 7
  8. 8. Revolutionary opportunity What would the data & control model for business software have looked like if it was designed at a time when ordinary people had access to a mainframe in their pocket? Let’s find out! 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 8
  9. 9. It’s our turn! Mainframe business software transformed commerce on a global scale. Personal computing software applied to business applications can transform commerce on a global scale again. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 9
  10. 10. But wait, there’s more! 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 10
  11. 11. Privacy, sovereignty Personal computing software, in the hands of individuals, that collects and processes their data locally, and honors the owner’s access policies opens the door to applications that you would not dare to farm out to a 3rd party. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 11
  12. 12. Hey! Wait a minute! Where do personal clouds fit into all of this? The session agenda said “Personal Clouds,” dammit! 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 12
  13. 13. Fair enough. But before we go on… Please write down your name and the answers to 5 or so of these questions and pass them forward to me. Have you ever been arrested How much money do you make? What medications do you take regularly? 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 13
  14. 14. That’s personal! The phrase “that’s personal” is universally understood. It means “that information is none of your business.” 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 14
  15. 15. “Personal” is that which you control! What makes a cloud personal is that the owner, that’s YOU if it is your personal cloud, has the ultimate say over the data stored there, how that data is used, and who it is shared with. A big part of the attraction is that you can decide what to share, with whom to share it and can revoke that access later. But an oft overlooked aspect is that you are no longer dependent on the vendor for every fix, enhancement, or integration. Personal Cloud invites innovation. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 15
  16. 16. So, what is a “cloud”? A computer system with… • Elasticity: Dynamic allocation of resources. • Redundancy: Increased availability. • Resiliency: Survives loss of some components. • Run-time resolution: Resources, identities and addresses are resolved dynamically. • Ubiquity: Accessible from all points within a given scope. • Abstraction. Logical connection destination. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 16
  17. 17. Personal + Cloud = If you know what personal is and you know what cloud is, just stick them together and you get Personal Cloud. It really is that simple. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 17
  18. 18. For the skeptics in the room… Forget about business apps for a moment. Soon, even the most mundane of objects will be instrumented. Who should own and benefit from all that personal data collected about you? Shouldn’t YOU be the primary stakeholder in your own data? 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 18
  19. 19. IoT current trajectory Because, at least for now, you are definitely not the primary stakeholder of your own data. 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 19
  20. 20. Personal Cloud can be: • • • • • • • • Commercial transactions Providing signal back to vendors Experiential data (job history, health data) Digital model of real-world state (social graph) Quantified Self Instrumented devices Decision Support Personal and Business Analytics 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 20
  21. 21. Personal Cloud Opportunities • • • • • • Hosting software Applications Data aggregation & integration Hosted apps & plugins Retro-fit Identity and authentication frameworks 10/21/2013 Mountain View, CA pCloud & VRM Day, IIW XVII Page 21
