Cloud Computing is not only the trend in the IT industry,
but is a real technology to manage IT resources efficiently.
As VMware, IBM, Microsoft partner and systems integrator, we suggest our
Customers the right solutions to optimize IT resources.
There are three categories of cloud currently in the marketplace:
Public Clouds are “stand-alone,” or proprietary,
clouds mostly off-premise, run by third party companies such as
Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and others. Public clouds are hosted off customer
premises and usually mix applications (transparently) from different consumers on
Private Cloud are typically designed and managed by an IT
department within an organization. A private cloud is usually built specifically
to provide services internally to an organization. Private clouds may be in a
collocated facility or in an existing data center. This model gives a high level
of control over the cloud services and the cloud infrastructure.
Hybrid Cloud allow mixed solutions, where sensitive data
managed in private cloud, while non-critical applications and services comes from
the public cloud.
Service Layers of Cloud Computing
Software as a Service (SaaS)
is where application services are delivered over the
network on a subscription and on-demand basis. Cisco WebEx™, Salesforce, Microsoft,
and Google are a few providers in this layer.
Platform as a Service (PaaS) consists of run-time environments and software
development frameworks and components delivered over the network on
a pay-as-you-go basis. PaaS offerings are typically presented as API to consumers.
Examples of this are: Google Apps Engine, Amazon Web Services, force.com,
and Cisco® WebEx Connect.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
is where compute, network, and storage are
delivered over the network on a pay-as-you-go basis. Amazon pioneered this with
AWS (Amazon Web Service), and now IBM and HP are entrants here also.
For Small Business SaaS could be first step towards Cloud Solutions.
