2. OverviewAgenda Why Cloud? Essential Characteristics Cloud Service Models Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Benefits of IaaS Challenges of IaaS Adoption of IaaS Summary2 3. Why Cloud?Value Proposition Provides a way to exploit virtualization andconsolidation Aggregates computing resources Offers economies of scale Offers opportunities to immediately takeadvantage of installedsoftware, hardware, infrastructure, andapplications Provides on-demand network access to ashared pool of configurable computing resources Lower IT 4. Essential Characteristics On-DemandSelf-Service Broad Network Access Resource Pooling Rapid Elasticity Measured 5. Cloud Service Models Software as a Service (SaaS) The capability provided to the consumer to the providers applications running on a cloud infrastructure Platform as a Service The capability to deploy onto the cloud infrastructure consumer-related or acquired applications using programming languages and tools supported by the provider Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) The capability to provision processing, storage, networks and other computing resources 5 6. Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas) Consumer provisionedprocessing, storage, networks, and othercomputing resources Consumer is able to deploy and run randomsoftware Consumer does not manage or controlthe underlying cloud infrastructure Consumer has control over operatingsystems, storage or deployed applications Consumer may have some limited control ofselecting network components (e.g., host firewalls)6 7. Benefits of IaaS Virtualization and consolidation of IT infrastructure Reduction in IT operating expenses and capitalexpenses Improvement of resource utilization and administrator-to-server ratios Faster time to market through increased efficiency andautomation of standardized solutions Simplified integrated management Greater visibility into business processes and systemperformance to identify redundancies and bottlenecks Scaled operations that can meet IT demands, marketdynamics, and business strategy 7 8. Challenges of Iaas Performance and security depend on a clouddeployment model Private Community Public Hybrid Global political hybrid environment National laws and restrictions Need for worldwide agreement on datasecurities, privacy policies and data 9. Adoption of IaaS Adoption Process and IssuesAnalyze IaaS offerings in terms of TCO/ROI and risks (e.g., vendor lock-in, interoperability, existing IT infrastructure)Define a clear IaaS strategy for both private and public implementationStart with a proof of concept private on-site deployment (e.g., infrastructure virtualization project to establish a foundation for future cloud adoption)9 10. Adoption of IaaS ConsiderationsConsider added business value of private (outsourced) and public deployment models (e.g., security and reliability issues, integration with existing enterprise servicesPublic deployments should move only non- critical, low-risk applications in early transition stages 10 11. SummaryCloud computing Offers a centralized, remote facility for computing, leading toeconomies of scale in both software and hardware and a reduction inrequired administrative management. Permits the expense of infrastructure and its management to becomean operational expense rather than a capital investment. Offers agility and speed for the use of computing resources on animmediate basis Is not an answer for every problem. Requirements force very highlevels of control and/or security may not be appropriate. Is not necessarily cheaper than conventional computingenvironments. It is the mix of computing workloads and their cost intraditional and cloud computing environments which will determine ifsavings can be made. 11
