Cloud Computing Conference in Prague

Filed under: cloud,To work — nax @ 12:25

This is my notes from Cloud Computing Conference in Prague held at 2nd November 2011.

  • HP
    • What is cloud?

      • way to comutize IT services

        IT department cannot cope with current load of requests

        HP did worldwide research: 70% of IT resources will be in cloud solutions in 2 years (majority in hybrid solutions (public/privite combination)

      where is HP best

      • monitoring (HP openview)
      • security in a cloud

      proces of deployment

      • Standardize
      • virtualize
      • automate (5% of companies currently)

      HP Cloud System

      • complete stack
      • Matrix
        • Blades x86 (not requirement)
        • management, storage (IaaS)
      • Network Infrastructure
        • today build in hierarchy
        • need to be redesigned, as most of the communication between servers
      • they use it internaly for 7years
      • it doesn’t lock you to one vendor

      Cloud enablers

      • automation (HP Operations Orchestrator)
      • IT cost modeling

      HP Service costs

      • predict what to run externaly and what internaly

      case study: K2

      • own DC in CZ (Ostrava)
      • phases of development
        • 1. a few customers
          • manually managed
          • simple up/down reactive monitoring
        • 2. tens of customers
          • semi automated
          • proactive monitoring
          • problem with SaaS – cannot be easily standardize on the platform
        • 3. hunderts of customers
          • require a new real-cloud solution
          • HP solution
  • VmWare
    • solution for cost modeling
      • service catalog
      • each department its own virtual data center
    • vCloud Director
      • create automatization (web portal)
      • resource management
      • model how virtual guests are interconnected
    • hybrid clouds
      • install vCloud Connector component
      • enter URL and credential
      • you can see external resources in one
      • it work just for connecting about 10 vCloud directors
      • one can migrate both directions
    • vApp Catalog
      • something like iphone app store/android market
      • whole prepared services
        • or just prepared OS images
        • web+DB+App Server + load balancer
      • you can create Template using web interface
        • track dependencies
        • allow you to edit config files thru web interface
    • CloudFoundry
      • PaaS

        • java
        • php
        • python
        • node.js
        • and more (that is advantage against Google app engine)

        build as OpenSource -> everyone can deploy their own CloudFoundry as private or public cloud offering

        VmWare cloud just for developers – they don’t want customers to use it for prod stuff

  • Veeam
    • 4 awards on VmWare expo 2010, 2011

        • smart CDP
          • selective restore (1 email, 1 row from DB etc)
  • GTS
    • Telco – run 10k m2 data center food print out of 120k m2 in central europe region
    • they offer public cloud based on vCloud Director
    • TCO calculator (excel sheet)
  • Microsoft
    • change conversation between business and IT
    • single tool to admin hybrid clouds
    • Hyper V-cloud
      • less than 30 days deployment
      • self-service (VM Manager)
      • Virtualization (Hyper-V Windows server)
      • identyty (Active Directory)

      • ECI (licence per processor
      • all inclusive
        • WinServer
