TDM are....

Happy
Penguins...


....because we believe
there is:



An ethical case


A technological case
and


A rock solid
business case


...for Open Source
software.

TDM are not...

Angry
Penguins...


...because we believe
that:


We should seek to
use good software
wherever it helps


Proprietary software
can serve as the
Ying to Open
Source's Yang

We are going to...


...talk about when / why to choose cloud
computing



...get you talking about when you personally
might choose cloud computing



...show you some ways in which we are using
cloud computing ourselves


...so let's get started.

How many people here use

Linux on a daily basis?

How many people here use

the internet on a daily basis?

Five different ways we can compute


Corporate Cloud
eg Windows Azure, Google Apps, Amazon EC2


Single SaaS (Software as a Service)
eg SalesForce.com,
Facebook. Twitter


Open Cloud
eg TDM, ULCC


Local Server
eg Dell or IBM running Windows or Linux


Local Device
eg Desktop, Laptop, Netbook, PDA, Games Console, Watch (??)
Fridge (??)

Cloud Computing

is like Teenage Sex....


Everyone is talks about it...


Few actually do it....


...and practically no
-
one is doing it right.

Your own Local Device

++s


You can work on the
train! (No
Broadband
Required)


High Performance


“Tailorability”


Very private, locally
stored data


Mobile augmented
reality

--
s


Poor for Community
Interaction /
Collaboration


Disincentive for
corporate
interoperability

Local Servers Managed by IT Dept.

++s


Some Privacy but
more interactivity


Easy to monitor
security &
performance


Easy to monitor user
activity (re: Data
Protection + e

Safety)


Very private, locally
stored data


Mobile augmented
reality

Not very eco
-
friendly


Core versus fringe
activity:
Would an FE
College employ a
construction department
with: architect, civil
engineer, construction
workers, etc???

What is this?

Local Electricity Generators

were made redundant

by the National Grid...

Open Cloud

Shared Services /

Open Source Software /

Elastic Computing

++s


Eco
-
Friendly


Effectively
managed server
space in
datacentres
(VMs?)


Still get local
access to
expertise /
support


Outsource
supplier will offer
training /
configuration
services in
addition to
managed hosting


Rapid
Deployment /
ease of scaling

Trust: Perhaps
easier to trust
Microsoft?


Price: More
expensive than
international
datacenter
hosting?


(Single) SaaS

Twitter v's identi.ca / FaceBook versus Mahoodle (Creepy Treehouse)

++s


Big communities
can boom better
than (eg TDM
Network Hubs)


Marketing: You go
out to the people
(they don't come to
you).


Very private, locally
stored data


Mobile augmented
reality

Privacy? Ownership
of Data (eg
Facebook)


Exportability? If the
service goes down,
you lose everything
(eg Pod

Openness of APIs?

5. International datacentres
