15 Ways to Tell Its Not Cloud Computing

30 Nov

Saat ini begitu banyak definisi yang beredar seputar cloud. Rasanya hampir semua pemberi layanan yang berkaitan dengan komputer menggunakan istilah dengan embel-embel cloud. Kondisi ini membingungkan banyak pihak, tidak hanya end-user, para praktisi pun sering terlibat dalam debat kusir tak berkesudahan mengenai cloud ini. Kondisi ini dijuluki cloudwashing. Untungnya pada sisi berlawanan dari para ‘pencuci’ tersebut, banyak juga yang berusaha meluruskan pemahaman tentang cloud. Ini salah satunya:

  • If you peel back the label and its says “Grid” or “OGSA” underneath… its not a cloud.
  • If you need to send a 40 page requirements document to the vendor then… it is not cloud.
  • If you can’t buy it on your personal credit card… it is not a cloud
  • If they are trying to sell you hardware… its not a cloud.
  • If there is no API… its not a cloud.
  • If you need to rearchitect your systems for it… Its not a cloud.
  • If it takes more than ten minutes to provision… its not a cloud.
  • If you can’t deprovision in less than ten minutes… its not a cloud.
  • If you know where the machines are… its not a cloud.
  • If there is a consultant in the room… its not a cloud.
  • If you need to specify the number of machines you want upfront… its not a cloud.
  • If it only runs one operating system… its not a cloud.

  • If you need to install software to use it… its not a cloud.
  • If you own all the hardware… its not a cloud.
  • If it takes 20 slides to explain…. its not a cloud
