Podcast Show Notes: SOA and Cloud – Where’s This Relationship Going? By Bob Rhubart

ArchBeat Podcast Opinions vary on the relationship between service oriented architecture and cloud computing. Some say SOA is essential to the cloud. Others say cloud is entirely possible without SOA. In this three-part program, three members of the Masons of SOA, the group behind the Industrial SOA article series, offer their insight about the issue.

The Panelists
(Listed alphabetically)

  • Jurgen Kress, Oracle EMEA Alliances and Channels, founder of the Oracle SOA and BPM community, the Oracle WebLogic Partner Community, and the global Oracle Partner Advisory Councils.
  • Hajo Normann, SOA / BPM Lead for ASG at Accenture, Oracle ACE Director.
  • Guido Schmutz, Technology Manager for SOA/BPM and Architecture Board at Trivadis, Oracle ACE Director.

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1 (program #244): What is the relationship between SOA and Cloud Computing? How is that relationship changing? Is the Cloud changing SOA?
  • Listen to Part 2 (program #245): What effect does the ease of acquiring services in the cloud have on the existence of development silos? What role can SOA principles play in bridging those silos?
  • Listen to Part 3 (program #246): Many services suffer from poor architecture, say these experts. There is a better way.

Cloud Conversations

Recorded live at OTN Architect Day in Los Angeles in October 2012, these programs in the OTN ArchBeat podcast represent the Q&A between the audience and the experts panel assembled for the event, which included speakers from the day’s technical sessions.

  • Listen to Part 1: Dude, What’s My Role?
    Members of the Architect Day panel respond to an audience question about what happens to traditional IT roles in a cloud environment.
  • Listen to Part 2: Migrating Mission-Critical Applications to the Cloud
    The panel offers advice and examples in response to an audience question about dealing with mission-critical applications.
  • Listen to Part 3: All Clouds Are Not Equal
    The panel responds to a challenging question about cloud strategy with a discussion of enterprise-grade cloud services.
  • Listen to Part 4: Cloud Security and Auditing
    The last segment in the series is short discussion in response to an audience question about auditing and security in the cloud.

A Pragmatic Approach to Cloud Adoption
For enterprises that seek to transform their IT capabilities and avoid disruption in the process, a structured, pragmatic approach to Cloud computing is required. You’ll find one in this practitioner guide, part of the IT Strategies from Oracle library. Read it.

Cloud Foundation
This reference architecture document from the IT Strategies from Oracle library provides architectural principles, standards, concepts, and a conceptual view for Cloud architecture. Read it.

Cloud Infrastructure
Also from the IT Strategies from Oracle library, this reference architecture document focuses on cloud computing from a provider view, covering the capabilities for public and private Clouds, and providing key architecture views to jumpstart a Cloud architecture initiative. Read it.

Cloud Integration White Paper – Now Available

Accidental SOA Cloud ArchitectureInterested in expanding your existing application infrastructure to integrate with cloud applications? Download the new Oracle White Paper “Cloud Integration – A Comprehensive Solution” to learn not just about connectivity but the other key aspects of successful cloud integration.
The paper includes three technical examples of cloud integration with Oracle Fusion Applications, Saleforce, and Workday and follows with the importance of taking a comprehensive approach to also include service aggregation, service virtualization, cloud security considerations and the benefit of maintaining a unified approach to monitoring and management despite an increasingly distributed hybrid infrastructure.

To keep the integration architecture from being defined “accidentally” as new business units subscribe to additional cloud vendors outside the participation of IT, a discussion on the “Accidental SOA Cloud Architecture” is included:Read the article here.

At our SOA Community Workspace (SOA Community membership required) we uploaded the whitepaper cloud-integration-wp.pdf and presentation

Cloud-based Enterprise Architecture

We know service-oriented architectures can deliver huge agility benefits for developing new functionality through repeated service reuse. However, if our shared services become highly used, they may be subjected to massively increased loads from runtime events that we, as service owners, cannot predict. With the significant return on investment gained with the deployment of public and private clouds, virtualization technology is now making it possible to combine SOA infrastructures with monitoring and APM tools to elastically scale out service deployments in response to real-time load increases.

This session will take a technical deep dive into a service-oriented architecture engineered specifically for elasticity. The following questions will be explored:

  • How can I monitor the load on my Services?
  • How can I fire up additional compute capacity as a service becomes loaded?
  • How do I architect my SOA deployment to utilise the power and flexibility of a private or public cloud?
  • How do I deploy UDDI to ensure clients can fully utilise new capacity?
  • How can I see what is happening on my ESB infrastructure?
    This talk is aimed at for architects and developers who have moved beyond "playing" with SOA in the cloud, and are looking to deploy SOA into a cloud-based production environment.
