6 The Future of Learning: A Dynamic Education Platform Just as consumer choice will lead to open mobile computing platforms, student choice will also ultimately drive educational institutions to be more open and collaborative in providing services. Students will demand that they can compile a variety of learning experiences from multiple institutions and providers into an aggregated and cohesive learning program that meets their needs. Open Platforms SOA concepts cepts are being adopted by leading vendors to hide the underlying complexity of business process data and functionality to expose a business service through a standardized interface with minimal impact or dependency on other initiatives being carried out. Open Platforms, including standards and open source software (OSS), refer to technology environments that are developed by a community of developers, rather than a single vendor, and for which the source code is made available by a copyright license. With OSS, users can use, modify, extend, and redistribute the open source without cost. These technologies signal changes for IT, to drive interoperability and ability to use more multiple solutions that adhere to open standards, and reduce IT operational costs through the use of cloud computing. Cloud Computing Definition: a pool of abstracted, highly scalable, and managed compute infrastructure capable of hosting end-customer applications and billed by consumption. An abstracted infrastructure: standardization of the infrastructure and use of abstraction layers that allow the fluid placement and movement of services. Fully virtualized: abstracts the hardware with server virtualization to help keep costs low. Dynamically configurable infrastructure software that can add, move, or change an application with little, if any, intervention by administrators Pay by consumption and without long-term contracts by actual use of the resources in CPU hours, gigabits consumed, and Gbps transferred, rather than by the server or a monthly fee. 6 6

7 Dynamic Infrastructure: What is Cloud Computing? A user experience and a business model Standardized offerings Rapidly provisioned Flexibly priced Cloud Services Cloud Computing Model An infrastructure management and services delivery method Virtualized resources Managed as a single large resource Delivering services with elastic scaling Self Service Virtualization In Education, Cloud is driven by: Self-Service Economies of Scale Technology Advancement Standardization 7

8 Dynamic Infrastructure: IBM s Experience with Conversion to Cloud Computing 100% Without Cloud New Development Software Costs Power Costs With Cloud Liberated funding for new development, trans- formation investment or direct saving Strategic Change Capacity Current IT Spend Labor Costs (Operations and Maintenance) Deployment (1-time) Software Costs Case Study Results Annual savings: $3.3M (84%) $3.9M to $0.6M Hardware Costs (annualized) Power Costs (88.8%) Labor Costs ( %) Hardware Costs ( %) Hardware, labor & power savings re-duced annual cost of Operation by 83.8% Note: 3-Year Depreciation Period with 10% Discount Rate 8

11 Virtual Computing Lab (VCL) enables universities to provide anytime, anywhere, on-demand computing for students, researchers and community partners What is it? An environment delivery service that provides a shared infrastructure for teaching and research Provides reservations for single images (desktops) or clusters (HPC), using both physical and virtual machines Extends the ability to support teaching, learning and research with a dynamically provisioned and scalable system that provides remote access to software and computing resources Market drivers Cheaper and more accessible than classroom computer labs or server rooms Supports device independent computing Leverage laptops or other mobile devices to reduce or eliminate PC labs Augments and replaces the traditional lab model Supports distance learning models Provides dynamic and scalable access to shared compute resources Allows for the self service creation of custom compute environments Provides continuous CPU cycles that can be reserved and allocated on demand to support teaching, learning and research 11

12 Conceptual Overview of VCL Traditional PC Environment Enterprise Servers Client OS / App Image Client OS / App Image Client OS / App Image Traditional PC Clients Virtual Computing Lab (VCL) moves the computing power, user data, and applications from the desktop to the cloud Computing resources and applications are no longer tied to a location, a device or a user Virtual Computing Lab Cloud Solution Enterprise Servers Client OS / App Image Client OS / App Image Client OS / App Image Screen images Mouse clicks & keyboard strokes Thin Clients or PCs 12

13 What is it? A Use Case Statistics Professor decides to use the following applications in his class SPSS MS Access 1. Professor creates VCL Image for the class Starts with existing Windows Base Image Adds applications Adjusts image resource requirements (i.e. RAM, CPU, etc.) Saves image as MT:201 - Introduction to Statistics 2. Professor grants access to the image 3. Professor creates a Block Reservation for the students in the class to access the image 13 Virtual Computing Lab 10/24/2011

14 What is it? A Use Case Student accesses image to complete assignments for their statistics class 1. Student logs in to the VCL environment 2. If the professor has provided a block reservation, the student selects reservation and connects to the image 3. If no reservation exists, creates one and selects the appropriate image and connect. 14 Virtual Computing Lab 10/24/2011

15 What is it? A Use Case Professor schedules use of High Performance Computing (HPC) resources 1. University Researcher uses VCL to schedule HPC (High Performance Computing) resources: 2. Login to VCL and make a reservation for an image 3. The image could represent a cluster of resources: 2. Could include multiple physical or virtual nodes of different types 3. Could include a gateway to another system 4. Researchers save data to their own storage at the end of the reservation 5. In this case, VCL is used to schedule shared resources 15 Virtual Computing Lab 10/24/2011

16 What is it? A Use Case Professor uses desktop productivity / office tools 1. Faculty logs in to VCL, selects desktop image 2. Could include MS-Office, Adobe, and other licensed or open-source tools (such as OpenOffice) 3. VCL can count license uses by image VCL can enforce limits or just log usage metrics Can use traditional license-server approach too 4. Faculty saves data at end of session Could be to shared storage, web upload, or local USB key or laptop harddrive 16 Virtual Computing Lab 10/24/2011
