8 EA and IT Infrastructure - 8© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Stages in IT Infrastructure Evolution Mainframe/Mini Computers Personal Computer Client/Sever Computing Web-based enterprise applications Cloud Computing/mobile device BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices)

9 EA and IT Infrastructure - 9© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 The Network Is the Computer "Sun has always been very early, and often way too early with a lot of our ideas. For example, in the '80s we were preaching that the network is the computer. Shame on us for not summing it up in one word – cloud.“ –Scott McNealy

10 EA and IT Infrastructure - 10© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 On the Cloud The cloud symbol is often used as a notation as a network in the a system architecture diagram.

11 EA and IT Infrastructure - 11© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 # of Data Centers in America? 7,000 Economist Survey on IT, 2008 Virtualization

12 EA and IT Infrastructure - 12© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 % of Utilized Server Capacity on Average? 6% IDC, 2008 Service Utilization

13 EA and IT Infrastructure - 13© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Over Provisioning = Waste Demand Capacity Time Resources 13

14 EA and IT Infrastructure - 14© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Without Virtualization All require same power All emit same heat All require physical space Setup, (re-)configuration Maintenance, support…

15 EA and IT Infrastructure - 15© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 With Virtualization Flexibility Rapid provisioning Disaster Recovery High Availability Automation Systems Management integration Adaptive Datacenter

16 EA and IT Infrastructure - 16© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Definition of Cloud Computing The NIST definition of cloud computing: Cloud computing is a model for enabling 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. The ability for end users to utilize parts of bulk resources and that these resources.

17 EA and IT Infrastructure - 17© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Characteristics of Cloud Services NIST identifies several characteristics for a service to be considered “Cloud”: On-demand self-service: The ability for an end user to sign up and receive services without the long delays that have characterized traditional IT. Broad network access: Ability to access the service via standard platforms (desktop, laptop, mobile etc). Resource pooling: Resources are pooled across multiple customers. Rapid elasticity: Capability can scale to cope with demand peaks. Measured Service: Billing is metered and delivered as a utility service can be acquired quickly and easily.

18 EA and IT Infrastructure - 18© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Platform Continuum Bring your own machines, connectivity, software, etc. Complete control Complete responsibility Static capabilities Upfront capital costs for the infrastructure Renting machines, connectivity, software Less control Fewer responsibilities Lower capital costs More flexible Pay for fixed capacity, even if idle Shared, multi-tenant infrastructure Virtualized & dynamic Scalable & available Abstracted from the infrastructure Higher-level services Pay as you go On-Premises Servers Hosted Servers Cloud Platform

23 EA and IT Infrastructure - 23© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Technology drivers of infrastructure evolution Moore’s law and micro-processing power  Computing power doubles every 2 years  Contrary factors: Heat dissipation needs, power consumption concerns  Nanotechnology: May shrink size of transistors to width of several atoms Law of Mass Digital Storage  The amount of data being stored each year doubles Metcalfe’s Law and network economy  Value or power of a network grows exponentially as a function of the number of network members  As network members increase, more people want to use it (demand for network access increases)

24 EA and IT Infrastructure - 24© Minder Chen, 1995-2014 Advancing Rates of Technology (Silicon, Storage, Telecom) Smaller & faster & cheaper
