Three Cloud & Data Center Mega-Trends


Emerge as Part of These Blurring Boundaries
Redefining Network Intelligence
Pendulum swings from smart pipes to dumb pipes Intelligence lives in virtualization software decoupled from the network hardware Virtualization & management tools mitigate embedded intelligence Debate of control vs. data vs. management plane

Investing in Fabrics
Data Center fabric = convergence of storage & server infrastructure Network fabric = flattened, meshed (fewer ties, embedded functions) Next wave of investment will be on fabric across extended enterprise

Revisiting Mobile Networking


Consumerization drives recreation wireless to primary connections Mobile definition expands to include nomadic (Wi-Fi), mobile (3G), & remote (branch office) Security & policy enforcement are critical as the network is the last enterprise demarcation point

Lessons Learned
Use consolidation as opportunity to evaluate cost & technical feasibility of transitioning Tier 1 & 2 applications to virtualized environment. Federated Cloud Service (also known as a Community Open Cloud) one of most advantageous models for governmental agencies, as costs can be spread across multiple agencies. Strategy & Roadmap (S&R) approach has proven to be effective methodology to determine how to best consume cloud services. Develop requirements & Use Cases as part of the S&R process. These same requirements & Use Cases should be used to develop RFPs for Cloud Services. Create transitional model that identifies applications to be moved & dependencies. Mitigate risk by beginning transition with Tier 2 & 3 applicationssave the Mission Critical Applications for last. Address model that you will use to facilitate orchestration, federation, provisioning & management (OFPM Model) of Private Cloud Solutions early in the process. Clearly define interfaces for integration of your OFPM Model into your Private Cloud Service. Consolidation & virtualization often breaks existing Management, Data Loss Protection & Audit, Risk & Governance models.

Storage as a Service Use Case Federal Government


Data Archiving
Problem
High cost of storing data on expensive NAS and SAN storage platforms after the data ages and as a result is infrequently used Alternate in house tape or long term stored disk solutions do not provide the ability to retrieve data in a timely manner if it is needed later Growing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to store aged data and retrieve it when required Keeping up with storage growth for legal compliance Aligns data storage costs more precisely with growth while providing unlimited storage expansion Moves less frequently utilized data to lower cost storage solution Lowers TCO and improves the ROI Optimizes the existing assets and budget Integrates with existing archival tools via meta data Protects and secures data offsite in one or more AT&T facilities using storage policies. Serves as a low cost medium for low value data while still maintaining operational and legal compliance Archive Manager

Development and Testing
Problem
Customers spend excessive amounts of capital and operational expenses on computing capacity that is used for testing and development work Testing capacity goes idle once testing is complete. Typically there is more idle time than used time. Often multiple organizations need to test but cannot or are unaware of how to share internal testing equipment so expenses are duplicated many times over.

Solution Benefit

Test equipment is required, but until cloud the only solution customers had was to allocate budget to the purchase of equipment specifically set aside for testing of new applications
Compute as a Service allows customer departments to turn up testing environments on demand at any time, then turn them off when they are no longer needed. Elimination of capital expenditures and operational expenses to support test equipment Elimination of duplicated expenses by multiple departments doing testing on intra department equipment.

Disaster Recovery - CooP
Problem
Providing Completely Redundant Diverse systems for Backup locations in house doubles in-house costs Failing to provide 100% backup creates huge liability and risk for any organization In many cases lack of funds causes many environments to go unprotected Lack of budget to build fully redundant in house systems in diverse locations Risk is tolerated or downplayed due to financial limitations CaaS provides an on demand computing environment that will permit customers to quickly (within minutes) replicate their computing capacity at a moments notice.

Batch Processing
Problem
Certain applications require a large amount of computing capacity for a very short period of time, example for a few hours or a few days per month. Typically either customers overbuild for these applications or suffer service degradation during times when these applications are running or both.
Business need to run certain batch applications requires extra capacity at certain times of the month. In house solutions require the customer to either have the capacity on hand waiting to be used or borrow it from production capacity when needed causing other applications to be slowed in performance CaaS provides the customer with the ability to turn up temporary computing capacity on demand, leave it running for as long as it is needed and then turning it off when no longer needed reducing costs. Avoidance of capital expenditures and operational expenses due to overbuilding of in house solutions Elimination of degraded service levels as new capacity can be added at anytime

Problem
Procurement creates even more red tape and adds complexity, lead time, and administrative and operational expenses. Takes focus of IT staff away from high value strategic projects and relegates them to IT custodial work Delays financial benefit of new applications Impossible for departments - units to plan for projects and know true computing needs IT Partners cannot procure quickly enough and many times, do not have it in the budget or have time to spend procuring, implementing and managing in house solutions Provides on demand computing capacity that is pay as you go and scalable to meet the needs of specific projects and applications within and across the entire organization Departments - Units can find on demand computing capacity outside of IT Partners Application Developers only need capacity to run the applications dont need to manage the devices after application is developed Depts. avoid lengthy procurement processes Organizations can execute non-forecasted projects and meet deadlines IT and LOB can work together to ensure security and governance Realize financial benefit of new apps sooner Customers Turn Up new servers and applications on demand helping customers to realize benefits of new apps on demand and much sooner than in-house solutions provide Better Total Cost of Ownership
