future?
“I think there is a world market for maybe five
   computers.” — thomas watson, ibm, 1943
why “cloud”?
demarcation
separation of duties between provider and consumer
benefits
multi-tenancy, economy of scale » secure, reliable, scalable
tight coupling
  legacy » integration
loose coupling
  cloud » aggregation
open source
uses copyrights to open products
software licenses
 have service provider “loophole”
close loophole?
affero general public license (agpl)?
no thanks.
do you really expect the source code for Gmail?
     could you use/modify it if you had it?
open cloud
ensures openness for services
user & vendor freedom
       freedom to migrate (for users)
   freedom to make money (for vendors)
commoditisation
          undifferentiated price competition
standards create tradable commodities (GB/m, CPU/h)
standard workload?
no “electron” for the cloud — 240v/50Hz is simple API
          “apulettes” = code + data packets?
open formats
e.g. Open Document Format (ODF)
open interfaces
    e.g. AtomPub
open formats +
open interfaces
 = open cloud
open standards
copyrights + patents + trademarks + open source impl.
open cloud initiative

current status
awaiting development of standards (not an sdo)

  2. 2. what is cloud?
  3. 3. cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on- demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
  4. 4. cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet).
