2 What is it and let s make the case

3 What is it? Colocation is the act of placing multiple (sometimes related) entities within a single location. Data Center Colocation is where space, power, and bandwidth are available for rental to retail customers. Virtual Colocation (aka Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Cloud) is a standardized, highly automated offering, where compute resources, complemented by storage and networking capabilities are owned and hosted by a service provider and offered to customers on-demand.

4 Customer leases space, power, cross-connects in data center Very little infrastructure build costs for Customer Colocation facilities have elevated security and more advanced power protection and redundancy Environmental controls such as temperature and humidity are more conducive for computing environments than traditional office buildings Infrastructure on demand and rapid expansion capability for customers Customers, in most cases, have 24x7 access to assets located within colocation facility Overall more stable computing environment providing lower risk and superior uptime of computing assets Typically a protective proposition vs compute

5 The official definition from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reads: "Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, ondemand 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."

6 Origins The phrase originates from the cloud symbol used in charts and diagrams to symbolize the Internet. The first reported public use of the phrase was in August of 2006 at a search engine conference in San Jose, Calif., when Eric Schmidt (then Google's CEO), described one approach to data storage as Cloud Computing. In a sign of the ever-competitive Internet wars, research shows that Schmidt may have been trying to pre-empt Amazon, which was to release its Elastic Compute Cloud system later that month. Source: CNBC

7 What the Cloud Delivers The cloud can afford an IT staff with the ability to scale computing resources with greater ease, execution, and control. Administrative headaches are greatly reduced, as with data redundancy or disaster recovery type tasks, as this is something that is often relegated to cloud providers themselves. The more that is moved to the cloud, the less hardware, software, bandwidth and power an organization needs to buy and maintain.

8 Return on Agility (ROA) Agility and lower time-to-market = higher revenue and increased competitive advantage Agility is typically the core business value of cloud computing The Cloud is not just about cost reduction. In many cases Agility becomes more important than cost reduction

9 ROA Benefits Focus on core business competencies instead of setting up and maintaining infrastructure Operational infrastructure in minutes not months Complete massive computing projects requiring a large number of resources quickly Adapt quickly to changing business and economic climate Drive down costs of experimentation and innovate quickly

10 Invest in Proof of Concept Early Pick obvious workloads to move to or pilot in the Cloud Development/Test Applications Backup Operations Training and Video Content Mobile Applications Software Downloads Web Applications and Portals Intranet/Extranet Applications
