1. What is a Cloud Computing?

• Cloud is a metaphor for the Internet
• Cloud Computing is a distributed computing
paradigm that focuses on providing a wide range of
users with distributed access to virtualized
hardware and/or software infrastructure over the
• Cloud computing is on demand.
• Cloud Computing architecture contains 2 main
sections are front end i.e. computer with user and
back end is data centre and virtualization software.
• Components are clients ,services, application,
platform, storage and Infrastructure.
• The cloud lets users contract for
services at three levels:

• Cloud Computing: Cloud computing is
Internet-based computing, whereby
shared resources, software and
information are provided as a service
to computers and other devices on-
• The architectural service layers of
Cloud computing is
1. Software as a Service – SaaS
2. Platform as a Service- Paas
3. Infrastructure as a Services - Iaas
• Virtualization:
– Increase use of hardware resources
– Reduces management and resource cost
– Improves business flexibility
– Improves security and reduce downtime
• Data Centre: Physical hard drive
storage aggregates into storage pools
from which logical storage is created.

1. Infrastructure-as-a-Service:
– Delivers storage and computing power
– Grids of virtualized servers, storage & networks.
– Examples include Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud(EC2) and
Simple Storage Service(S3) and Joyent.
2. Platform-as-a-Service:
– Computing platform is provided as service
– Supplies tools and development environment
– Customers interact with platform through API
– The abstraction of applications from traditional limits of
hardware allowing developers to focus on application
development and not worry about operating systems,
infrastructure scaling, load balancing and so on.
– Examples include and Microsoft's Azure investments.
3. Software-as-a-Service:
– Application is offered is service
– Managed by the provider
– Applications with a Web-based interface accessed via Web
Services and Web 2.0.
– Examples include Google Apps, and social
network applications such as FaceBook.

• Cloud Architecture
• Cloud Architectures are designs of software
applications that use Internet-accessible on-
demand services.
• Applications built on Cloud Architectures are such
that the underlying computing infrastructure is
used only when it is needed, draw the necessary
resources on-demand, perform a specific job, then
relinquish the unneeded resources and often
dispose themselves after the job is done.
• While in operation the application scales up or
down elastically based on resource needs.

Cloud storage
• With cloud storage, data is stored on multiple third-party
servers, rather than on the dedicated servers.
• When storing data, the user sees a virtual server—that is,
it appears as if the data is stored in a particular place with
a specific name.
• In reality, the user’s data could be stored on any one or
more of the computers used to create the cloud.
• Data stored in the cloud is secure from accidental erasure
or hardware crashes, because it is duplicated across
multiple physical machines.
• On-demand service: Get computing capabilities
as needed automatically

– Broad Network Access: Services available over the

net using desktop, laptop, PDA, mobile phone

– Resource pooling: Provider resources pooled to

server multiple clients

– Rapid Elasticity: Ability to quickly scale in/out service

– Measured Service: control, optimize services based

on metering

• Public
– External cloud describes in such a way resources
are dynamically provisioned on a fine-grained, self-
service basis over the Internet, via web
applications/web services.
– Owned and operated by third parties.
• Private
– On-premise Private Cloud
– Externally hosted Private Cloud
• Hybrid
– Service providers can utilize 3rd party Cloud
Providers in a full or partial manner.
– Increases flexibility of computing.
• Community.
• Users select a task or service (either starting an
application or opening a document).
• User’s request goes to the system management,
which finds the correct resources and then calls the
system’s appropriate provisioning services.
• These services
> Carve out the necessary resources in the cloud
> Launch the appropriate web application
> Opens the requested document.
• Web application is launched System’s monitoring
functions track the usage of the cloud so that
resources are apportioned and attributed to the
proper user(s).
• User is charged according to the amount of utilities
and resources used.

Cloud Components
• Cloud Computing will require persons with different
expertise, experiences and backgrounds.
• Clients
• Services
• Application
• Platform
• Storage
• Infrastructure
• The Client – The End User
• The Service – the Functions in Cloud Computing
• Front end is USER computer
• Back end is cloud and Interface is Internet

1.The Client – The End

Everything ends with the client. The hardware
components, the application and everything else
developed for cloud computing will be used in the
client. Without the client, nothing will be possible.
• The client could come in two forms: the hardware
component or the combination of software and
hardware components. Although it’s a common
conception that cloud computing solely relies on the
cloud (internet), there are certain systems that
requires pre-installed applications to ensure smooth
transition. The hardware on the other hand will be the
platform where everything has to be launched.
• Optimization is based on two fronts: the local hardware
capacity and the software security. Through optimized
hardware with security, the application will launch
2. The Service – the Functions in Cloud
• Cloud computing always has a purpose.
One of the main reasons cloud
computing become popular is due to
the adoption of businesses as the
easier way to implement business
processes. Cloud computing is all about
processes and the services launched
through cloud computing always has to
deal with processes with an expected
Cloud Computing
infrastructure Models
• There are 3 types of clouds
1. Public cloud
2. Private cloud
3. Hybrid cloud

Software for Cloud
• Cloud computing OS is
– Windows Azure
– eyeOS
– Cloud
– vSphere4
– Google chrome OS
– CloudSlim is a cloud computing simulator

• Extremely cost efficient
• Device and location independency
• Scalability
• Unlimited storage capacity
• Flexibility
• Reduced s/w maintenance
• Increased data reliability
• Agility
• Improved document format
compatability 27
• Requires constant internet connection
• Doesn’t work with well low speed
• Can be slow
• Data store might not be secure
• Stored data can be lost

• Cloud Computing enables a shift from the
computer to the user, from applications to tasks,
and from isolated data to data that can be
accessed from anywhere and shared with anyone.
• Cloud computing offers real alternatives to IT
departments for improved flexibility and lower cost.
• The user no longer needs to remember where the
data is. All that matters is that the data is in the
cloud, and its available to user.
• Markets are developing for the delivery of software
applications, platforms, and infrastructure as a
service to IT departments over the “cloud”.
• Good career opportunities.
2. Why Cloud Computing
• Cloud computing refers to both the
applications delivered as services over
the Internet and the hardware and
systems software in the datacenters
that provide those services.
• The services themselves have long
been referred to as Software as a
Service (SaaS), so we use that term.
• The datacenter hardware and software
is what we will call a Cloud.
• 10 reasons Why Cloud Computing is
the Wave of the Future

• Software as a Subscription
• Reduced Software Maintenance
• Increased Reliability
• Increased Scalability
• Cost Reduction
• Environmentally Friendly
• Matches Current Computing Trends
• Portability/Accessibility
• Efficient Use of Computer Resources
• Versionless Software
• Cloud computing consists of shared
computing resources that are virtualized and
accessed as a service, through an API.
• The cloud enables users in an organization
to run applications by deploying them to the
cloud, a virtual datacenter.
• The physical resources may reside in a
number of locations inside and outside of an
organization: on local hardware, in an
enterprise data center, or at remote or
managed service providers on a pay-to-use
• Cloud computing resources are offered as a
service on an as-needed basis, and
delivered by IP-based connectivity, providing
highly scalable, reliable on-demand services
with agile management capabilities.
• Cloud Application Characteristics
1. Incremental Scalability. Cloud environments allow users to
access additional compute resources on-demand in response to
increased application loads.
2. Agility. As a shared resource, the cloud provides flexible,
automated management to distribute the computing resources
among the cloud's users.
3. Reliability and Fault-Tolerance. Cloud environments take
advantage of the built-in redundancy of the large numbers of
servers that make them up by enabling high levels of availability
and reliability for applications that can take advantage of this.
4. Service-oriented. The cloud is a natural home for service-
oriented applications, which need a way to easily scale as
services get incorporated into other applications.
5. Utility-based. Users only pay for the services they use, either
by subscription or transaction-based models.
6. Shared. By enabling IT resources to be consolidated, multiple
users share a common infrastructure, allowing costs to be more
effectively managed without sacrificing the security of each
user's data.
7. SLA-driven. Clouds are managed dynamically based on service-
level agreements that define policies like delivery parameters,
costs, and other factors.
8. APIs. Because clouds virtualize resources as a service they must
have an application programming interface (API).
• Related Technologies
• cloud computing is enabled by grid computing, virtualization, utility
computing, hosting and software as a service (SaaS). Yet these
technologies differ from cloud computing in the following ways:
1. Grid Computing: Originally designed for computationally intensive
batch applications, grid computing was developed as a way to share
computers and data. From these beginnings, modern grid computing
technologies have evolved as a way to harness inexpensive servers in
a data center to solve a variety of business problems. Traditionally,
grids have lacked the automation, agility and simplicity characterized
by cloud computing.
2. Virtualization: Virtualized infrastructures are available on-demand
and capable of supporting multiple users, but lack the automation
required for the self-managing, self-healing property of the cloud.
3. Hosting: Hosting services provide space on servers for use by clients
as well as providing IP-based connectivity, typically in a data center.
Because hosting does not enable on-demand, elastic scalability, it
cannot be considered cloud computing.
4. SaaS: Although Software-as-a-Service offerings are often hosted on
true clouds, SaaS is an application as a service and cloud computing is
IT infrastructure as a service.
5. Utility computing: In the utility computing model, computing
resources like applications, infrastructure and storage are packaged
and sold as a service, with users paying only for what they consume,
like electricity. In many respects, cloud computing is closely related to
the utility computing model, with cloud computing being a broader
concept that relates to the underlying architecture in which the
services are designed.
• Benefits:
1. You receive secure, managed hosting at very
inexpensive costs.
2. You do not need to purchase additional hardware
as your space requirements grow.
3. Your server will have offsite backup in case
something goes wrong.
4. If something does goes wrong, you can get the
support of your service providers.

• Disadvantages:
1. 1. Additional cost of data transfer fees.
2. You do not have control over the remote servers,
their software, or their security.
3. Your data is at the mercy of a third-party company
(you better make sure you trust them).
4. It may be difficult (or even impossible) to migrate
massive amounts of data from the provider
• What are the limitations of  Cloud
• Cloud computing with all its benefits also has its own
set of limitations which restrict enterprises to move
their applications in the cloud.  Some of these
limitations are:
1. Customization is nearly impossible
2. Scalability problems with Sequential processing
3. Data privacy issues because of the common resources
4. Lack of high speed Internet connectivity
5. Reliability problems related to SLAs.  Alex Iskold wrote a great
post on cloud computing which also mentions about the SLAs
for cloud computing and what to expect.
6. Cost surpasses traditional hosting in case of very high usage.
7. New unstructured and non standard paradigm of programming
8. Restrictions on the programming model
9. A good local debugging experience
10. Appropriate metrics and documentation of programming best
11. Ensuring availability of the cloud
12. Ensuring Consistency
13. Program verification
