Cloud Computing: Why We’re Here Today
 The buzz around the cloud is quickly moving to system

management and integration. For newly adopted cloud environments, how do you:
   

allocate resources? provide security? integrate existing operations? integrate proliferating new apps, services, and features?

Agenda
How much cloudcomputing activity there really is The pros and cons driving adoption and issues The one true meaning of cloud computing!

NGDC—cloud or more?

The application approach to the cloud

What should you do next?

Key Findings from Our Cloud Research
 The attraction of cloud computing isn’t about saving

money on equipment spending—it’s about versatility upon the loss of control adopters face integration needs grow

 Concerns about cloud computing deployments hinge  Infrastructure needs remain, and management and
 Modern server, storage, client plant  Robust network  Application infrastructure (e.g., service-oriented

architectures)  Integration platforms and services

Ziff Davis Enterprise Cloud Computing Research
 Goals:  Understand the pace, and styles, of adoption  Identify benefits and challenges  Recognize underlying management needs  Studies:  Two recent, fielded online to a random selection from Ziff Davis Enterprise database of IT influencers  January 2011, 731 respondents  May 2011, 757 respondents; publishing in Baseline May issue  Typical results accurate within ±3.6% at high confidence

Our Technical Definition of Cloud Computing (Used in Our Surveys)
“Cloud computing” occurs when an Internet/intranetbased infrastructure enables self-service, on-demand access to a shared pool of computing resources (e.g., servers, storage, applications). These resources can be quickly and elastically provisioned by users, because the cloud’s management has implemented systems for metering usage and automating resource allocation.”

But Getting “Technical” about the Cloud Misses the Point—and the Implications
 It’s a new way of building business capabilities  It’s a major disruptor  Affecting business growth and development tactics  Ultimately affecting everything about how enterprise IT runs  Does it reduce demand for hardware and on-premise

software? Or does it just shift needs in a disruptive way?

Changing use of, and needs from, client systems Changing use of, and needs from, servers Changing network usage patterns New need for new services, management, and integration

Storage Cloud … Computing Cloud
 Have been lumped together as “infrastructure as a

service,” or “IaaS”

 But they’re fundamentally distinct  Storage: where to find the information  Computing: what to do with it  So there are different offerings for each—you can use

different vendors or solutions for each service,” which is actually PaaS …)

 (More confusion: IaaS also stands for “integration as a

Both Public and Private Clouds Provide Flexibility and Speed Benefits
Top Benefits Expected, Next 2 Years
Increased flexibility/versatility Lower fixed costs for whole organization Increased scalability Reduced demand on IT staff Reduced maintenance/migration costs Reduced demand on hardware Increased data security Increased user productivity Happier users More user access to high-volume IT resources Centralization of organization’s fixed costs Easier compliance

Connecting the Dots
 Cloud computing provides organizations with greater

versatility in building out capabilities

 But it also presents key challenges:  Data loss or security breach (even for private clouds)  Lost productivity or other costs related to unavailability, slower performance, poor integration  Maintenance and management costs from holding it all together  In other words, organizations still must seek, and

can get, the control and performance they’re used to—they just haven’t demanded it yet.
