Cloud Computing Concepts:

These are Twitter sized quick thoughts. If you’d like more elaboration or have a comment participation is highly encouraged.  As I’ve run out of steam on this I’ve decided to move it into a blog rather than a page.

  • 01: Cloud is a fad like computers, the Internet and social networking were before it.
  • 02: It’s not all or nothing, its pick and choose.
  • 03: It’s as secure as YOU make it
  • 04: There’s no point arguing semantics, argue features.
  • 05: You have at least one application today that’s a great candidate for cloud computing
  • 06: Cloud requires a migration strategy, not a fork-lift.
  • 07: Virtualization and automation are the building blocks of private cloud.
  • 08: Encrypt locally store globally.
  • 09: Open portability is key to public cloud.
  • 10: Elasticity means scale-up AND scale-down.
  • 11: Security should not be an afterthought.
  • 12: Multi-Tenancy is your friend.
  • 13: Silo’d organizations breed silo’d architectures.
  • 14: IT should support the business, not the other way around.
  • 15: Performance isn’t about highest/lowest it’s about application requirements.
  • 16: Cloud pushes IT from CapEx to OpEx, without financing hardware.
  • 17: Features only matter if you need, them now or will need them later.
  • 18: Address organizational challenges before technical challenges.
  • 19: The way you do things today should not dictate the way you do things tomorrow.
  • 20: Latency operates independent of bandwidth, low-latency apps require low latency links.
  • 21: Build a 5-Year plan and incorporate staged migration to cloud architectures/services.
  • 22: Bad budget processes should not force bad IT decisions.
  • 23: If you do things the way you’ve always done them, you get the results you’ve always had.
  • 24: Integration and support are top considerations for private-cloud architectures.
  • 25: Cloud computing provides business agility.
  • 26: Getting applications out of the cloud is as important a consideration as getting them in.
  • 27: There are no ‘One-size-fits-all’ solutions in IT, cloud is no different.
