Cloud computing 2.0 The future of cloud infrastructure.
Cloud computing original promise was to give user and application the ability to configure infrastructure resource on demand when they need it
Until recently the promise has gone unfilled.
What is IaaS? Infrastructure as a service.
Service providers offer pools of abstract IT infrastructure resource such as servers, storage and network components to customer on a pay per usage model
The service provider owns the equipment and is responsible for housing, cooling, operation and maintenance.
IaaS will achieve a compound annual growth rate CAGR of 41.3% through 2016.
Public Cloud Services (2010-2016) 4Q12 update (Billions of Dollars)
As a first generation service, cloud computing 1.0 break new ground by offering infrastructure on a utility model billing by the hour. Developers and startups finally had access to the compute, storage and eventually scalability. However users are still locked into set models and instant sizes. Without the ability to create flexible computing environment and scale vertically more companies are shifting from cloud computing1.0 in environment in more flexible, modern infrastructures.
Cloud Computing 2.0 infrastructure offers services that are closer to the definition of true cloud. These next generation cloud computing infrastructure scale vertically and horizontally and users pay for what they actually use. Over provision is no longer a concern for cloud. Running massive computational process at a lower cost for taking advantage of better speed and performance is defining cloud computing 2.0.It also enables users of databases to scale their virtual server vertically rather than horizontally.
