2Data Processing Explosion

Evolving Computing Paradigm

Key to Cloud Computing Value: Parallel Processing:

Cloud ComputingNot a new technology but a new approach in the provisioning and consumption of information technologyA services oriented architecture (SOA) implemented typically on a virtualized infrastructure (compute, storage, networks) using commodity components coupled with highly automated controls enable the five essential characteristics of cloud computing.Key ConcernsStandardsPortabilityControl/AvailabilitySecurityIT PolicyManagement / MonitoringEcosystemKey BenefitsSignificant cost reductionsReduced time to capabilityIncreased flexibilityElastic scalabilityIncrease service qualityIncreased securityEase of technology refreshEase of collaborationIncreased efficiencyIC Cloud Computing7

Death of the Relational Database103t1tThe economics of data storage led to the use of content addressable storage, flat storage architectures and internet scaling.Database design, database tuning no longer required with infinite scalability and consistent responsivenessTraditional Analytics11Traditionally, lexical searches, filtering or Boolean search attributes are used to reduce data to a working set. Analytical tools are then applied to this working set.

SummaryCloud computing is a technological evolutionDrive for scale (Internet) and Drive for cheap (Commodity components, Extensive automation) and the economics of Moores Law (Cheap storage) led to a business model revolutionFiscal realities and business model economics are driving rapid adoption of cloud computing in the DoD and ICCloud computing can also enable significant enhancements in many DoD and IC mission areas
