Introduction to the Cloud:

Introduction to the Cloud What is cloud computing? How is the Cloud already being used? What are the limitations to the Cloud? How is the Cloud being developed? Career Applications

Definition of Cloud Computing:

Definition of Cloud Computing A model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction What that really means - applications and services available through the internet rather than stored on internal servers

Current Usage:

Current Usage A data storage and application development solution. A voidance of capital expenditures for hardware, software, and services because of shared infrastructure costs. C ompanies pay for only the amount of services they use. Well known companies who use Cloud Computing:

Current Limitations:

Current Limitations Companies give up control of services and procedures Security measures Reliability Three components of Cloud Computing Bandwidth Web Browser Server farms Dependent on the accessibility of the network connection

Future Development :

Future Development Facebook - one of the biggest cloud operators Open Compute Project Effort to open-resource the technology in Facebook’s vast data center to encourage Cloud computing Encourages hardware suppliers to adopt its designs widely, which could in turn drive down the cost of the server computers Reduced costs will generate revenue for other companies that take advantage of Facebook’s technology Projected revenue in public cloud services worldwide $180 billion by 2015

Career Applications:

Career Applications Possible career opportunities System Administration Configuration Management Network Management Jevon’s Paradox As cloud computing becomes less expensive, there will be more demand for information technology professionals that can create and maintain it.

Computers are Everywhere!:

Computers are Everywhere! “Just like water from the tap in your kitchen, cloud computing services can be turned on or off quickly as needed. Like at the water company, there is a team of dedicated professionals making sure the service provided is safe, secure and available on a 24/7 basis. When the tap isn’t on, not only are you saving water, but you aren’t paying for resources you don’t currently need.” - Vivek Kundra , CIO in Obama administration.
