4VirtualizationRunning several virtual machines (virtual computers) inside a single powerful hardware machineSupported by special software called hypervisorUse resources more efficientlyE.g. 12 GB physical RAM is shared to 6 virtual machines with 4 GB each (with memory sharing)Most applications use 1-5% of the CPUA single shared CPU can serve thousands of users / hundreds of appsReduces costs due to better utilizationWhat is Virtualization?5Cloud combine the computing power and resources of multiple hardware machinesShare the cloud resources between multiple users and appsGoal: save costs, use resources more efficiently, better serviceCloud computing environmentSuppose we have 20-30 powerful machinesWe can run 100-200 virtual machines (VMs)We can deploy hundreds applicationsWe can serve millions of usersWhat is Cloud Computing?

6In the cloud everyone consumes a portion of the shared computing resourcesCPU, memory, storage, IO, networking, etc.If you business is small, you consume lessIf your business is growing, you consume more cloud resourcesPay as you goStart for free, pay when yougrow and need more resourcesHow the Cloud Works?

7Suppose we have a mail server softwareIt needs computing resources (CPU, disk operations, networking, etc.) only when sending or receiving emailsIt the rest of the time it does nothing (waits)The mail server on dedicated machine will use less than 1% of its power and resourcesYou can run 100 mail servers in the cloud on the same hardwareLess hardware, reduced costs, increased qualityCloud Computing Example8Cloud computing benefitsComputing on demand pay as you goRent a hosting + CPU power + RAM + storage + IO operations + networking + other services (e.g. databases, CDN, analytics, )Cloud has better support and reliabilityYour data lives in a professional data centerHas 24 x 7 monitoring + backup + supportReduces costs: rent a piece of a data center instead build you own IT infrastructure / data center

Cloud == Computing Resources on Demand9Public cloudsIT infrastructure, platform or service publicly accessible from Internet (free or paid), e.g. Amazon AWS, Windows AzurePrivate cloudsCloud infrastructure (hardware + software) for internal use only, e.g. for banking / governmentHybrid cloudsMix of private and public cloud infrastructure and services, e.g. private cloud + backup in Amazon S3Public / Private / Hybrid CloudCloud Computing ModelsIaaS, PaaS, BaaS, SaaS

11Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)Virtual machines in the cloud on demandUsers install the OS and software they needPlatform as a Service (PaaS)Platform, services and APIs for developersE.g. Java + JBoss + JPA + Spring MVC + MongoDB orJavaScript + Node.js + MongoDB + RabbitMQSoftware as a Service (SaaS)Hosted application on demand (e.g. WordPress site)Cloud Computing Models12SaaS, PaaS and IaaS

IaaSInfrastructure as a Service

14VPS == virtual private server (a virtual machine, VM)IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)IaaS rent a dynamic virtual machine (VM, VPS) in the cloudDynamic VM == you could change your VM resources at runtimeE.g. add more 100 GB HDD storage + 2 GB RAM at runtimeAlso known as rent a "cloud server"IaaS provides an API for managing the cloud infrastructureE.g. programmable create a new virtual machine / allocate more resources / configure the network / install software / etc.IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)15IaaS providers offer different pricing modelsFixed price per month for a cloud server with fixed parametersOffered by most hosting companiesPricing based on computing hours for fixed parametersE.g. Amazon EC2, Rackspace Cloud Servers, Windows Azure ComputeDynamic pricing per resources usedE.g. $0.024 per GB storage, $0.026 per CPU hour, $0.06 per GB data transferIaaS Pricing ModelsPaaS: Platform as a Service

PaaS: Cloud for Developers
