2 “cloud server” or IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) 6/28/10 Denver / Boulder Cloud Computing Group Barebones (OS only) servers you can take up or down (or up/downgrade) in just a few minutes Utility-based pricing (per hour for server, per GB for storage) Becoming a great choice for high availability applications like Web apps & Web databases Absolute no-brainer for Small to Medium sized Businesses (SMBs) which need to watch cost now but allow for potentially huge growth later

3 Savvy User’s Pain getting in the Cloud can be overwhelming 6/28/10 Denver / Boulder Cloud Computing Group Usually 5-30 person company Pick provider (over 100 now) 1 st project is OJT as they leverage cloud strengths and run into limitations Have to stay on top of offerings in a constantly changing marketplace Typically peel off 1-2 IT staff for 1-3 weeks just to “come up to speed” on Cloud offerings, architectures Can be weeks or (more likely) months before new product is deployed or existing product is migrated

4 Non-Savvy User’s Pain everything but their App is overwhelming 6/28/10 Denver / Boulder Cloud Computing Group Single-owner Web businesses (bloggers, CPA marketers, Real Estate professionals, etc) Can benefit greatly by using Cloud IaaS (servers as low as $11/month) The Pain: – Completely inaccessible to non-Sys Admins – Do not maintain anything but the UI of their website – Know nothing of Security, “Layers”, SysAdmin – Extremely sensitive to cost

5 We Relieve the Pain 6/28/10 Denver / Boulder Cloud Computing Group

6 We Relieve the Pain 6/28/10 Denver / Boulder Cloud Computing Group

7 We stay on top of IaaS Providers There are over 100 companies providing IaaS, more added every week – Still very nascent space, constantly changing – Will likely commoditize (become cheaper, more robust) within months – Each provider has different strengths/weaknesses now We help you choose & build into the right one for you – You may even need to leverage strengths of multiple providers 6/17/10 RE Bar Camp

8 We lockdown & monitor Security Install & configure open source packages to: – Block DDOS and brute force attacks – Secure the Web, Database + Application layers – 24x7 Monitoring and problem resolution – Provide Anti-Virus protection (yes, Linux can get sick, too) – Monthly patching, updating of your servers – Periodic vulnerability and penetration scans of your infrastructure 6/17/10 RE Bar Camp

9 We Help Architect and Build Existing Apps (migrating to Cloud): – Leverage Autoscaling and utility based pricing – High Availability Infrastructure (load balancers, sticky sessions, etc) – Security, Monitoring, and SysAd tools and systems that you’re now responsible for New Apps in the Cloud: – Leverage Network architectures – Bake in Autoscaling and utility based-pricing – Initial App-layer install and ongoing support All Apps in the Cloud: Identify and Deploy static assets (graphics, javascript) to cost-effective H/A CDNs Build, Test, Deploy, and Management tools and processes 6/17/10 RE Bar Camp

10 We Train and Advise Developer and Executive training sessions available We can embed with your team and fill in the “Cloud gap” We can help executives draft their Cloud roadmap Bring years of best-practices in App Development, System Architectures, Security, and Cloud Architecture All training, advising, and work can occur on-site or remote. 6/17/10 RE Bar Camp

11 We Are Cost Effective Clients migrating from Dedicated, Managed hardware typically save 50-70% on their monthly hosting costs Initial Migration can pay for itself within 6-9 months Reduce or eliminate initial 1-3 week “ramp up” time Automation allows us to provide security lockdown for as little as $150 per server 6/17/10 RE Bar Camp
