Cloud Computing Part 2: Cloud Deployment Models

Hi, my names is Nathan Bell, I’m the COO of telkomtelstra,
and today I’m here to talk to you about Cloud in Indonesia. We have the public Cloud – a public Cloud
basically means that everybody has access to that environment. Now that might sound like
it’s insecure. It’s like, well I’m sharing all this space with everybody else. But actually
it is an incredibly secure place. You still have all the security in terms of logging
on to those various systems that are secure only to you or access only to you. The second area we talk about is private Cloud.
It’s incredibly secure because it’s only your space and you’re the only ones who
have access to that. It’s not shared by anybody else. So we’ve talked about public Cloud, and
private Cloud, but the most exciting aspect of Cloud infrastructure or Cloud services
is when we start to merge some of these things together. And the best example of that is
in the form of hybrid Cloud. So hybrid Cloud is basically where we are
getting the best strengths, the best capabilities of a private Cloud environment, as well as
a public Cloud environment. But what does that actually mean? So as any business, there are certain parts
of your organization that you are going to want to have secure. You are going to want
to make sure that you are controlling the growth, the scalability of those environments
– you know what that cost is going to be to your business and more importantly what the
utilization is going to be to that business. Whether we’re talking about customer data,
whether we’re talking about financial records, things that are very important to your organization
that no one else should have any chance of actually being able to see or touch those
types of information. On the other hand, we have a lot of applications
where we are trying to engage with our customers, our suppliers, our partners. And how do we
actually go about sharing that information? If it’s in a private environment and we’re
trying to scale quickly I’ve got to buy a significant amount of private infrastructure
to be able to make that work. The benefit of public Cloud means I can scale
with the needs of the business. And this is really why we see hybrid is going to play a more important role in Cloud services going forward. Therefore it’s very important we’ve got that flexibility but we’ve also got elements
of those controls and consistencies that we are able to drive back for our own business.
And hybrid Cloud is the best representation of that. So to wrap it up! We’ve talked about the different types of
Cloud platforms that we can look at. Whether that is in terms of the private Cloud, public
Cloud, the hybrid Cloud and even Cloud for the community or community Cloud. But where does this all come together? What’s
the real benefit going to be? The real
key benefits are going to come in the form of: Scalability – instead of having to go and
buy all that IT infrastructure or work to very rigid application or software environments,
having that ability to go and scale with the needs of the business, scale with the needs
of the market, is a very exciting opportunity. Likewise, being able to have that control
– making sure that I know what elements of my IT infrastructure are being used for what. And more importantly, creating a great dynamic
environment in your organization. How exciting would it be to be, sitting in a meeting, to be able to
say, ‘Yes, let’s give that a go.’ Instead of, ‘Oh, I better go and check what the
IT infrastructure is going to be like to be able to go and support that.’? Knowing you’ve got that flexibility means
your business will be able to look at opportunities in a completely different way, and look at
how it can serve the market in the most effective way possible. So at telkomtelstra we believe Cloud is an
exciting development for the Indonesian market. And it’s going to have a fantastic role
to play in helping businesses to realize their full potential in the growth that is Indonesia. Thank you very much.
