, SHARE in Orlando 2011
A Reference Architectures (RA) provides a blueprint of a to-be-model with a well-defined scope, the requirements it satisfies, and architectural decisions it realizes. By delivering best practices in a standardized, methodical way, an RA ensures consistency and quality across development and delivery projects.
IBM's Cloud Computing Reference Architecture (CC RA) is based on real-world input from many cloud implementations across IBM. The Architecture Overview Diagram (AOD) provides an overview of the fundamental architectural building blocks making up the CC RA. It also defines architectural principles serving as a guideline for creating any cloud environment. It focuses on cloud specifics such as radical cost reduction while achieving high degrees of security, reliability, scalability and control. The CC RA consists of 21 detailed documents representing best-of-industry knowledge and insight on how to architect, design and implement clouds.
Our speaker will overview IBM's CC RA and discuss how you can use it to assist you in your cloud implementations.
