2. Basic Questions "What's the cloud?" "Where is the cloud?" "Are we in the cloud now?!" These are all questions you've probably heard or even asked yourself. The term "cloud computing" is everywhere.
3. Definition In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive. In computer networking, cloud computing is a phrase used to describe a variety of computing concepts that involve a large number of computers connected through a real-time communication network such as the Internet.
4. Why it is called Cloud The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the Internet as nothing but a puffy, white cumulonimbus cloud, accepting connections and doling out information as it floats.
5. Cloud Computing Services Cloud computing providers offer their services according to several fundamental models: • Software as a service (SaaS) • Platform as a service (PaaS) • Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) where IaaS is the most basic and each higher model abstracts from the details of the lower models In 2012, Network as a service (NaaS) and Communication as a Service (CaaS) were officially included by ITU (International Telecommunication Union) as part of the basic cloud computing models.
6. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a way to rent storage, hardware, servers and network capacity over the Internet. The service provider owns massive computer resources and is responsible for running and maintaining them. Meanwhile, the client needs only computer and Internet connection to access these bottomless resources and typically pays for it on a per-user basis.
7. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) The main features and components of Iaas are • service-oriented utility computing, • automation of administrative tasks, • unlimited resources, • on-demand self-service, • pay-per-use pricing, • desktop virtualization, • policy-based services.
8. Platform as a Service (PaaS) Platform as a Service (PaaS) gives a possibility to run, create or test various applications by using provider's tools over the internet. The consumer has no rights to manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure (storage, servers, platforms, etc.), but is able to configure the application-hosting environment and the installed applications.
9. Advantages-PaaS Advantages of using PaaS are • the possibility to change and upgrade the characteristics and components of the operating system, • easier collaboration with specialist over the word, • opportunity to use resources that are over the national border without crossing it, • overall cost reduction by minimizing the expenses of hardware and programming tools, incompatibility problems and so on.
10. Disadvantages-PaaS Disadvantages of using PaaS are: • some providers may not allow moving developed software out of his platform (security issues), • the flexibility of this service may still be insufficient in meeting the needs of users, whose requirements are constantly changing.
11. Software as a Service (SaaS) Software as a Service (SaaS) is a cloud computing model, which hosts various software applications and makes them available to customers over the Internet or another network. There are two main software delivery models for SaaS: • to give online access to a single copy of an application, • to host commercially available software and deliver it over the Internet.
12. Advantages-SaaS The main advantages of the SaaS model are: • no concerns about software buying (licenses), installing and maintaining, • automatic updates and patch management, • automation of administrative tasks, • easier collaboration with other users – everyone has the same version of the software, • world-wide access.
13. Disadvantages-SaaS Disadvantages of SaaS (Software as a Service) • Security Issue: As data is stored on the cloud, security becomes a major issue. • Latency Issue: Again as data is stored in the cloud far away from the end-user, it may take more transactional time as compared to the traditional approach. • Total Dependency on the Internet: Relying on an Internet connection means that data is transferred to and from a SaaS firm at Internet speeds, rather than the potentially higher speeds of a firm’s internal network. • Switching between SaaS vendors is difficult: Switching SaaS vendors may involve the slow and difficult task of transferring very large data files over the Internet.

15. Deployment models • Controlled Cloud • Public Cloud • Private Cloud. • Community Cloud • Hybrid Cloud
16. Controlled cloud services are not publicly available; users are specifically authorized by services vendors. Access to the controlled cloud may be through the Internet; however, connections would be encrypted. The cloud vendor employs various techniques and technologies to prevent unauthorized access. The use of services is governed by contracts and service-level agreements which specify the responsibilities of the vendor and the responsibilities of the customer with regard to data stewardship.
17. Public Cloud • A public cloud is a standard cloud computing model wherein a service provider manages storage and computing resources on behalf of consumers over the Internet. • Public clouds are run by third parties, and applications from different users are shared on the provider’s cloud servers, storage systems, and networks. • The benefits of public clouds include ease of on-demand scalability as they are larger than a company’s private cloud. Security Concern: • Shared resources are a major target of attack for hackers. • the target of a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. e.g.- Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), IBM's Blue Cloud, Sun Cloud, Google AppEngine, and Windows Azure Services Platform.
18. Private Cloud • also called internal cloud or corporate cloud • typically hosted on customer premises • provides hosted services to authorized users behind a company firewall • company has control over resources, data, security and QoS. • The company owns the infrastructure and controls how applications are deployed on it. • The benefits of going with private cloud is increased control and monitoring of resources, the flexibility of customization, the ability to recover from failure, and the ability to scale up or down depending upon demand. Attracted criticism because users "still have to buy, build, and manage them" and thus do not benefit from less hands-on management
19. Community Cloud • Community cloud shares infrastructure between several organizations from a specific community with common concerns (security, compliance, jurisdiction, etc.), whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally. • The costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a private cloud), so only some of the cost savings potential of cloud computing are realized.
20. Hybrid Cloud • composition of two or more clouds (private, community or public) • remain unique entities but are bound together • offering the benefits of multiple deployment models • ability to connect collocation, managed and/or dedicated services with cloud resources • Companies able to obtain degrees of fault tolerance combined with locally immediate usability without dependency on internet connectivity. • It requires both on-premises resources and off-site (remote) server-based cloud infrastructure.
21. Cloud Bursting • It is an application deployment model in which an application runs in a private cloud or data center and "bursts" to a public cloud when the demand for computing capacity increases. • A primary advantage of cloud bursting and a hybrid cloud model is that an organization only pays for extra compute resources when they are needed. • Cloud bursting enables data centers to create an in-house IT infrastructure that supports average workloads, and use cloud resources from public or private clouds, during spikes in processing demands
22. Cloud Computing Sample Architecture Cloud Service (eg Queue) Cloud Infrastructure (eg Billing VMs) Cloud Platform (e.g Web Front) Cloud Storage (Database)
23. Cloud Service Providers • Amazon Web Services • Google • Microsoft • Rackspace • JustCloud • SugarSync • SpiderOak
24. Advantages of Cloud Computing • Cost – Transform Capital Expenditure for servers into and operating expenses • Multi-tenancy – Several customers share the shame infrastructure • Scalability – “On-demand” provisioning of Computing resources • Redundancy – Redundancy of sites is easier to implement • Accessibility – Device and Location independence • Maintenance – Upgrades are applied centrally and done by IT experts
25. Disadvantages of Cloud Computing • Security – Loss of control over sensitive data • Dependency – Tied to your Cloud Service Provider • Flexibility – Special customization of computing resources may not be possible • Cost – Cost structure is becoming opaque • Knowledge – Most of the knowledge is concentrated at the cloud service Provider • Integration – Difficult Integration with other equipment and systems
26. Conclusion For it to be considered "cloud computing," you need to access your data or your programs over the Internet, or at the very least, have that data synchronized with other information over the Net. With an online connection, cloud computing can be done anywhere, anytime. Like everything else, cloud computing to has its pros and cons. While technology can prove to be a great asset to your company, it could also cause harm if not understood and used properly.
