Gray Arrow Cloud Integration Services

Gray Arrow Cloud Integration would be one of the most signficant challenges facing organizations in the near future.

Although the cloud has transformed the IT capital expenditure to operating expenses, it does introduce additional layers of complexity for applications and data integration.

Organizations will need to integrate data between cloud and on-premise applications so as to understand the same on a holistic basis.

e.g. An E-Commerce website will need to integrate data on a real time basis from different cloud based web services in different functional areas such as payment gateway providers, order fulfillment agencies and customer service interactions.

This would be essential to provide an integrated 360 Degree view of the customer transactions and relationship metrics on an end to end basis.

In addition to integration complexities, the cloud also introduces billing complexities, especially for organizations that need to track usage of various cloud services by their users in different departments, cost centres and locations.

Kaytek can help you build such integrated solutions that can help your internal applications tak to and exchange data with cloud based applications. ( 4th August 2012)

Gray Arrow Cloud Computing For Startups

Gray Arrow Question - We are a Web Startup Using Mysql & PHP. How can Cloud Computing Help Us ?

Down Arrow Answer - In traditional non-cloud computing, you need to estimate the size of demand for your web resources (e.g. web servers, database servers, etc) and INVEST IN ADVANCE on booking capacity on the same regardless of whether the resources get used or not.

If you overshoot, (plan for more, but actually use less) you have lost money as your extra resources sit idle.

If you undershoot, (plan for less, but suddenly need more), then you would probably face user dissatisfaction as your web offerings would experience time delays.

Cloud computing helps you overcome these problems by converting earlier IT Infrastructure Fixed Costs to Pay-By-The-Unit Variable Costs for storage, bandwidth & memory.

With cloud computing, all your hardware (storage, bandwidth & memory) resources can be created instantaneously (say within 5-10 minutes) based on demand consumption patterns that can change rapidly.

e.g. When your web startup receives a favourable review in any global trade publication and your website starts receiving many more visitors, you can on-the-fly generate additional web servers (loaded with your front end HTML & PHP code) and corresponding new database servers (with MYSQL instances) to handle the extra load so that your user experience does not suffer due to extra loads.

Similarly, if you anticipate lower demand during a particular period, (e.g. at night or on weekends), you can correspondingly reduce the number of computing resources on-the-fly literally within minutes.

This can be an entirely automated process (think of a programmable data center).

In short, Cloud Computing will help you scale your IT infrastructure upwards or downwards at variable minimal extra costs rapidly to adjust to changing demand.

You only need an internet connection and a credit card to get started.

The exact nature in which cloud computing can help you will decide on the nature of your web startup and what kind of services you offer currently and plan to do so in the future.

Gray Arrow Amazon Web Services - AWS

Amazon was the first global IT giant to allow outsiders to leverage their internal IT infrastructures for internet cloud based applications.

Gray Arrow Recently, for one an E-Commerce project for a US customer, Kaytek successfully set up an Amazon AWS EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) Server to process webhooks and receive real time web push notification data from multiple independent e-commerce (payment gateway, order placement & order dispatch) web services. ( 4th August 2012)

Gray Arrow Kaytek has implemented two Amazon Web Services (AWS) Offerings - S3 (Simple Storage Service) & SNS (Simple Notification Service) for our software projects in the areas of Employee Intranet & Financial Services.

Gray Arrow Kaytek Director was the first book prize winner at the Amazon AWS event in Mumbai in October 2010.

Gray Arrow Microsoft Windows Azure

Gray Arrow Interoperability In Microsoft Azure.

Gray Arrow Microsoft Tech Ed 2010 Top Architect Contest - Kaytek Director Mr. Mahesh Khatri once again selected as One Of Top Software Architects in India. ( 9th April 2010)

Gray Arrow Kaytek Director Mr. Mahesh Khatri is 1st runner-up winner at Microsoft Tech-Ed 2009 Top Software Architect Contest.

The solution involved Microsoft's Cloud Computing - Windows Azure OS & Services Platform. (16th May 2009)

Microsoft Cloud Computing Azure Platform went commercially live in 21 countries including India from 1st February 2010. (6th February 2010 )

Microsoft's Azure Software is a new Operating System for Cloud Computing.

It promises a completely new development environment for a cloud computing infrastructure running applications using Microsoft & other technologies.

At the Professional Developer's Conference PDC 2008 , Microsoft had initiated serious moves in the Cloud Computing World.

The release of their Windows Azure Operating System for the Cloud Platform as well as the Model Driven Development - Oslo Platform is in line with their earlier stated twin objectives of providing world class development tools to software vendors for both on-premise and hosted applications.

Application Software vendors now have an additional Cloud Computing platform in addition to the earlier launched Amazon Web Services and Google Application Engine Cloud Computing Initiatives.

Kaytek has attended Microsoft's Briefing Session for their partners on their Cloud Based Offerings - BPOS - Business Productivity Online Suite in Mumbai.

Since Microsoft already has a substantial presence in the Desktop Arena both for Application Development Tools and End User Office Productivity Software Solutions, they have a tremendous edge as compared to other vendors. Familarity of User Interfaces amongst End Users and Extension of Integrated Software Development Suite Knowledge amongst programmers will help overcome the leap from on premise to hosted solutions.

Microsoft is clearly a serious player in the cloud computing arena. (25th Nov 2008 )

Gray Arrow Moving from Microsoft .NET to Azure Cloud Platform

Gray Arrow Customer Question - We have several websites, one portal and few web applications in the group. All have different needs.

Gray Arrow We have a Microsoft exchange server and few other web servers hosted outside.

Gray Arrow All these severs are hosted in a US data center and are being managed by our own team remotely.

Gray Arrow All applications developed using Microsoft technology asp.net.

Our Disk Space is 100GB, Monthly BandWidth is 350-400 GB at current usage and SQL Database Size (including all databases)is currently 37 GB Occupied but we shall need 100 GB in the future.

We like to discuss the benefits,feasibility,maintenance queries of shifting to a cloud platform for our various websites and applications.

We also request for a telephonic consulsting session to understand the following :

Gray Arrow Various aspects of cloud services.

Gray Arrow How can we move our various servers and web application to the cloud.

Gray Arrow Advantages of having cloud as compared to normal hosting.

Gray Arrow Procurement of the best cloud services as per our technical requirements.

Gray Arrow Advantages and disadvantages of the cloud.

Down Arrow Answer - Whether the cloud would be beneficial to your websites & applications would depend on the following busness and technical factors :

Gray Arrow Current Volume of Traffic in terms of various metrics (page views, unique visitors, size of data processed, geographic spread of visitors, etc)

Gray Arrow Current Website Hosting Charges (Fixed and Variable)

Gray Arrow Current Website SLA (Service Level Agreements) Parameters

Gray Arrow Future Expected Annual Growth in terms of traffic metrics mentioned above

Gray Arrow Current Technical Architecture of your Microsoft .NET based websites / applications & future enhancements.

Based on a study of your data, we shall estimate monthly Microsoft Cloud (Azure) costs as per their current pricing based on your current workloads and estimated future workloads.

You will then meed to compare the minimum cloud costs at current pricing to your existing US hosting inrastructure monthly costs (without the Exchange Server Costs).

Kindly note the following important points :

Gray Arrow Currently Azure costs may seem quite high as compared to other competitive US hosting providers. As Microsoft Windows Azure technology matures, prices will come down.

Gray Arrow The costs are for USA/Europe, Asia costs may be higher. (Your different web properties may have a different geographic spread of visitors).

Gray Arrow Currently, Microsoft offers a SLA (Service Level Agreement) only if you deploy 2 reserved instances. The above pricing is for only 1 reserved instance. In case you want 2 reserved instances, it will cost more.

Gray Arrow Your ASP.NET applications architecture may have to be suitably modified for the Cloud for long term optimization.

I would suggest that ONLY IN CASE your current hosting costs are similar to the above or are higher AND your current web hosting quality / scalability is not as per your expectations , then you should look at cloud more in detail.

In that case, a detailed study be done independently for each of your different properties as their needs are different.

One long term advantage of moving to the cloud would be that your own team can save time on web hosting management and perhaps focus on other tasks. The same would have to be quantified as long term cost savings.

Another advantage of the cloud would be geographical distribution. e.g. in case your web properties visitors are not from the USA, then Microsoft offers you a choice of hosting your web properties in different global locations e.g. Singapore for Asia Pacific customers.
