  • 1. Cloud Computing & Cloud Architecture The Advantages & Disadvantages It Presents CC PublicDomainPictures
  • 2. Cloud Computing Continuously growing! Services available without need of powerful PCs Devices like smartphones can access easily CC GoodNCrazy
  • 3. How & Why? Companies with huge server collections connected to the Internet More widely available due to broadband and cheaper storage costs CC Jamison_Judd
  • 4. Change of Focus Computer architectures should shift the focus of Moores Law from increasing clock speed per chip to increasing the number of processor cores and threads per chip. Sameli CC Ioan
  • 5. Coming Changes From Hard Disk To Solid State Drives DrivesCC Simon Wllhorst
  • 6. Data Management Shift from home desktops towards next-gen data centres Database management systems needed to control cloud capabilities CC IntelFreePress
  • 7. Cloud computing provides environments to enableresource sharing in terms of infrastructure, middlewareand application development platforms. CC theaucitron
  • 8. Resource Types Typically 4 different types: Infrastructure resources Software resources Application resources Business processes Shareable resources, support open cloud ethos CC Richard Masoner/ Cyclelicious
  • 9. Infrastructure Resources Includes computing power, storage and machine provisioning CC Kinologik CC Google

  • 13. Security Ever present security threats! Needs to be to the same, if not to a greater degree than if cloud not used at all CC bclinesmith
  • 14. Data Storage Data has to be stored in a hard format somewhere Security needs to be provided for this lydia_shiningbrightly CC
  • 15. Data Access Hackers are potential threat Cloud providers need to control access to data CC gpuhackr
  • 16. Data Classification Data must be separated Data should be encrypted for security CC mcfarlandmo
  • 17. The Cloud as a Technology Streamline and minimize computer interaction Cloud computing is a disruptive technology with profound implications, not only for Internet services, but also for the IT sector as a whole.
  • 18. A Killer App Yet to be developed Various barriers in the way
  • 19. The Future If it can be imagined, it can be perfected Huge potential in the coming years backofthenapkin CC
