Cloud Delivery Models and Sevices

-Private Cloud

Infrastructure shared with several organizations


Traditional data center management

Virtualized servers hosted on-site

Organization has complete control over its servers

Organization is responsibile for costs of data center

-OF-Premise Hosting

Referred to as cloud computing

Hosted in the cloud and accessed online

Cloud provider owns the hardware

Cloud provider has some control over the server

Reduces costs,as a cloud provider is responsible for the data center

-Orchestration Platforms

For day-to day tasks

Automated management of cloud environments

Syncs business requests with infrastructure


Cloud Characteristics and Terms


Enables computing resources to be moves as needed

Shifts resources across the infrastructure

Allows workloads to be increased to additional hardware inside a pool

-Demand-Driver Service

Customers use an online portal to access the services

A supplier can provide provision cloud resources on demand


Pay for the services as needed

Pay for the computing resources that are being used

Pay for services by time,hour,data

-Charge back

Accouting strategy to decentralize IT costs

Charge the department independently for the services that are being used

Services are billed to the department budget versus  the IT’s budget

Also know as showback

-Ubiquitous Access

Same level of access from anyplace

Able to access the resources with they same ability from any location


Tracking of IT resources

Measure usage by cloud consumer

Allows a the consumer to be charge for the resources used

-Multi tenancy

Allows one instance to many users

Each user has a view of the application

Users are oblivious to other users

-Cloud Bursting

The resources are in the local LAN when the local LAN is over used the resources become available in the cloud


Object Storage Concepts

-Object ID

Unique identifiers for the data and metadata

Used to find the data


Describes each object in the database

Used like a table for a database

Contains the compounds of the data

-Data BLOB

Binary large object

Primarily used in database

Large amounts of binary data stored in a location to help copy between location


Attributed associated with objects

Similar to metadata but for security mechanism


Copies of large data set

Associated with VHD

Require a copy mechanism
