  • 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.

  • Local Servere.g. Dell or IBM running Windows or Linux
  • Single SaaS (Software as a Service)e.g. SalesForce.com
  • Open Cloude.g. TDM, ULCC
  • Corporate Cloude.g. Windows Azure, Google Apps, Amazon EC2
  • = Choice with Trade-offs
