(1) Introduction
  • Definition (Wikipedia
  • Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a
    service rather than a product, whereby shared
    resources, software, and information are provided
    to computers and other devices as a utility (like
    the electricity grid) over a network (typically
    the Internet).

(2) Introduction (contd)
  • (B) Types Cloud Services
  • SaaS (collaborative applications, for CM, ERM,
    OM, CRM etc, eg salesforce.com)
  • PaaS (for application development, middleware,
    data access/analysis/delivery, information
    management, system management, etc eg MS Azure)
  • IaaS (system and network management,
    security/storage /system software, virtulaisation
    etc servers, storage, network, etc eg Amazon
    WS)

(3) HK Policy in Cloud Data Centre
  • 159.     Since there is increasing global demand
    for data services, the Government has reserved
    about two hectares of land in Tseung Kwan O for
    data centre use.  The first such site is expected
    to be put up for open auction in 2013 at the
    earliest.  The Hong Kong Science and Technology
    Parks Corporation will review the use of
    industrial estates and promote their
    revitalisation to support data centre
    development.  Furthermore, we will seriously
    consider the feasibility of developing data
    centres in revitalised industrial buildings.  The
    Government will encourage the local industry to
    develop advanced cloud computing technologies and
    applications.  In the next few years, we will
    develop a government cloud platform and procure
    public cloud services.
