Cloud Computing: Considerations and Next StepsExecutive Summary and Purpose of This PaperCloud computing is an important transition and a paradigm shift in IT services delivery—one that promises large gains in efficiency and flexibility at a time when demands on data centers are growing exponentially. The tools, building blocks, and best practices for cloud computing are evolving, and the challenges to deploying cloud solutions need to be considered.The technology and industry leadership that Intel brings to this environment is broader and deeper than most realize. Intel’s vision for cloud computing is for solutions that are federated, automated, and client-aware. Moving the industry toward that promise will require a focus on four industry-wide principles of cloud computing that will make this vision a reality: efficiency, simplification, security, and open standards. This White Paper defines Intel’s cloud computing vision and then, for each of the four principles, explains both Intel’s activities and Intel’s recommendations for evolving cloud infrastructure over the next several years to be more efficient, secure, simplified, and built on open standards.Introduction: Demands, Challenges, SolutionsA Paradigm ShiftRather than a revolution, cloud computing is an important transition, a paradigm shift in IT services delivery—one that has broad impact and can present significant challenges. Cloud computing represents a transformation in the design, development, and deployment of next-generation technologies—technologies based on flexible, pay-as-you-go business models that will alter the future of computing from Mobile Platforms to the Data Center.Read the full Cloud Computing Considerations and Next Steps White Paper.
