What is the Cloud ?
The National Institute of Standards and Technology definition of “The Cloud”
“Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand
network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g.,
networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly
provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider
interaction.”

Cloud Based as-a-Service Options
• Many acronyms – XaaS or “something” as a Service
• Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): The hardware and software that powers it all –
servers, storage, networks, operating systems
• Platform as a Service (PaaS): The set of tools and services designed to make coding
and deploying those applications quick and efficient
• Software as a Service (SaaS): Applications are designed for end-users, delivered over
the web

Types of Cloud Computing
• Public Cloud — an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider such as Amazon
EC2, Rackspace, Azure, etc.
• Private Cloud — either provided by an IaaS, or hosted internally at the customer
site (using something like Openstack or Cloudstack)
• Virtualization-based Cloud — this would be something like a VMware (vCloud)
environment, or even a fully virtualized environment
• Customer SaaS offering — where a partner has built a solution based on our
products and delivers that solution on a SaaS basis

Pros and Cons
• A private cloud, built using your resources in your data center, leaves you in
control but also means you shoulder the management overhead.
• Public cloud services relieve you of that management burden but at the expense
of some control.
• A hybrid approach might make it possible to realize the best of both worlds, but
you'll still have to pick private or public as the base for operations.
You’ll make breakthroughs
Cloud Deployment Frameworks
• Differentiate between Management Providers (RightScale) and Service Providers
(Amazon, Azure, Google, RackSpace, CloudStack, VMWare, etc.)
• Each Cloud Service Provider has their own framework for managing, monitoring
and deploying IaaS, PaaS and SaaS
• Cloud Management Providers abstract the details of each Cloud Service Provider
to give you a seamless management, monitoring and deployment framework
• Direct API’s are also available to most providers to allow for cloud interaction from
customer applications

Creating a Deployment
• Choose the cloud provider you want to deploy on
• Configure the hardware, networking, security, and other server options from the
deployment configuration screen
• Define “Launch Inputs” for your Server Template
• Save and Launch your Server Template
You’ll make breakthroughs
Complex Deployments
• Since a server array is designed to launch identical instances with the same
configuration, you will use the same ServerTemplate to launch and configure each
instance into an array
• Configure autoscaling policy and array details
• Add alerts for autoscaling based upon configured scaling criteria
– ie; metric: cpu-0/cpu-idle
– threshold: <30%
– duration: 5 minutes
– vote: vote to ‘grow’ server array

Cloud Challenges
• There are *many* challenges in The Cloud
• The 2 biggest (initial) pain points are:
– Deploying & Managing systems
– Deploying & Managing applications
• How is InterSystems going to help you?
– Unique partnership with RightScale (www.rightscale.com)
– Single-click deployment framework
– For Caché & Ensemble
– Plus, recipes to help you deploy your complete app with a single-click!

Cloud Challenges
• Security & Privacy
– PCI (Payment Card Industry), HIPAA, PHI (Protected Health Inf.), etc.
– Public cloud service providers are trying to establish guidelines which will enable
cloud-running applications to meet the various rules and regulations

Building a Configuration – Unattended Windows Install
• MSIEXEC allows for unattended Windows based Cache, Ensemble or
HealthShare installations with varying levels of control
• Use ADDLOCAL for customizing component installation and installing features.
Use ‘ALL’ to install ALL features or,
ADDLOCAL=server_samples,sqlgateway,odbc,jdbc…etc.
– ie: documentation, sqltools, development
• Use other parameters such as; SuperServerPort, InstanceName, and
InstallationManifest (Points to exported manifestclass.xml)
You’ll make breakthroughs
Building a Configuration – Unattended Unix Install
• The installation scripts for each component are contained in the packages
directory below the directory containing the cinstall_silent script
• Replicate the directory structure from the standard_install dir to something like
custom_install
• Modify the manifest.isc file to reflect new custom directory and remove packages
from manifest that you don’t want installed
Then you can specify the new custom package when performing unattended
installations; for example: sudo ISC_PACKAGE_INSTANCENAME="MyCache"
ISC_PACKAGE_INSTALLDIR=“/opt/mycache2”
ISC_INSTALLER_MANIFEST=c:/MyStuff/MyInstaller.xml ./cinstall_silent
custom_install.

Creating and Using an Installation Manifest
What is %Installer?
The %Installer utility lets you define an installation manifest that describes a
resulting configuration, rather than defining a step-by-step installation process.
You’ll make breakthroughs
The %Installer Manifest
• Create a class that contains an XData block describing the configuration. You
also include a method in this class that uses the XData block to generate code to
configure the instance.
• Use <Manifest…tags> within the Xdata block for configuring the manifest. (ie;
<GlobalMapping>,<Import>,<RoutineMapping>,etc)
• Within the XData block, you have access to variables that contain information
usually provided during installation (superserver port, operating system,
installation directory, and so on).
• You can use the %Installer manifest during installation, from a Terminal session,
or within code. It must be run in the %SYS namespace.
You’ll make breakthroughs
Sample Manifest Class
Include %occInclude
Class MyPackage.MyInstaller
{
XData MyInstall [ XMLNamespace = INSTALLER ]
{
<Manifest>
<Namespace Name="MyNamespace" Create="yes" Code="MyRoutinesDB" Data="MyDataDB">
<Configuration>
<Database Name="MyRoutinesDB" Create="yes" Dir="C:\MyInstallerDir\MyRoutinesDB"/>
<Database Name="MyDataDB" Create="yes" Dir="C:\MyInstallerDir\MyDataDB"/>
<Database Name="MyMappingDB" Create="yes" Dir="C:\MyInstallerDir\MyMappingDB"/>
<GlobalMapping Global="t*" From="MyMappingDB"/>
</Configuration>
</Namespace>
</Manifest>
}
ClassMethod setup(ByRef pVars, pLogLevel As %Integer = 3, pInstaller As %Installer.Installer) As %Status [ CodeMode = objectgenerator, Internal ] {
Quit ##class(%Installer.Manifest).%Generate(%compiledclass, %code, ”MyInstall") }
}
%SYS> Do ##class(MyPackage.MyInstaller).setup()
Or
%SYS> Set vars("SourceDir")="c:\myinstaller"
%SYS> Set vars("Updated")="Yes"
%SYS> Do ##class(MyPackage.MyInstaller).setup(.vars,3) (The 3 in the argument is the log level)
