Welcome everyone. Thank you for your attendance today as Joe and I get to talk about Agile in the Cloud. And Joe, I think we should congratulate ourselves with the fact that we’ve managed to use two of the most nebulous and ill-defined terms in computing together in the title. I think we could talk about pretty much anything to do with IT and be able to defend it as being somehow related to Agile and/or the Cloud... it’s a shame we didn’t get a chance to work Big Data into the title as well :-)
What is Big Data - Big Data represents the information that is generated and requested from the result of connecting over 2.5B people with billions of devices supported by billions more sensors and intelligent connected systems to the Internet. These data will continue to grow at a rapid pace as more and more devices and users join online services. Tools to enable near real time information processing of this data are maturing with updated infrastructure like the cloud, or embedded IT infrastructures and storage. The “Vs.” represent the elements of how to classify the different actions and behavior on this information…Ultimately the goal is to come up with the 4th V – Value or the Quickest and Most Confident Time to Value Response for a given set of requests and conditions on the digital environment you are connected to.
If harnessed and managed correctly the impact of Big Data Insights is monumental. Imagine a world where Person to Person and Machine to Machine Analysis and Understanding is made available at your fingertips for business, social and ecological purposes. The tremendous gains in efficiency for the cities we live in and love to visit would be fantastic.Smart City Project: The Smart Cities project is creating an innovation network between cities and academics to develop & deliver better services to citizens and businesses Example “In Rio de Janeiro, IBM has developed one of the most ambitious urban management commandcenters that have ever arisen. Rio’s operation center is a large situation room that offers real time data of the different systems that govern the city. This integrates, from 400 cameras on the street and a wide network of sensors, 32 municipal agencies to exchange information in order to solve urgent crises such as a power outage, an endless rain or a traffic jam, taking decisions instantly. (source: http://www.paseoproject.eu/en/imaging-smart-city-minds/)Local Example as of 7/11 - Taipei has become the first “smart city with free Internet access” among the world's international cities. All people in Taiwan, whether they are residents or visitors from foreign countries or mainland China, can take advantage of the system, Hau said. (source: www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/local/taipei/2011/07/02/308329/Taipei-flips.htm)Taobao.com (Taobao: Cutting Costs and Saving Power)• Established in 2003, Taobao.com was financed by Alibaba Group.• Taobao.com is the largest online shopping platform with a market segment share of over 80 percent of the e-business in China.• Taobao.com has more than 800 million pieces of product information and over 370 million registered users. It is one of the top 20 websites by number of page views worldwide, with over 60 million visits every day.Manufacturing and Retail per McKinsey group report “Big data: The next frontier for innovation, competition, and productivity” (source: https://www.box.com/s/b8ffbe1253be764ec33b)Retail info: In the coming years, the continued adoption and development of big data levers have the potential to further increase sector-wide productivity by at least 0.5 percent a year through 2020. Among individual firms, these levers could increase operating margins by more than 60 percent for those pioneers that maximize their use of big data… US online and Web-influenced retail sales are forecast to become more than half of all sales by 2013… The volume of data is growing inexorably as retailers not only record every customer transaction and operation but also keep track of emerging data sources such as radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips that track products, and online customer behavior and sentiment.Specific example is Amazon’s results from their “you might also want” prompts (note I dropped Amazon specific attribution since we did not get it directly from them)Manufacturing info: Manufacturing stores more data than any other sector—close to 2 Exabyte's of new data stored in 2010. This sector generates data from a multitude of sources, from instrumented production machinery (process control), to supply chain management systems, to systems that monitor the performance of products that have already been sold (e.g., during a single cross-country flight, a Boeing 737 generates 240 terabytes of data).Example: Product lifecycle management (PLM) becomes a platform for “co-creation,” OEM and part suppliers can collaborate on design on-line. Toyota, Fiat, and Nissan have all cut new-model development time by 30 to 50 percent; Toyota claims to have eliminated 80 percent of defects prior to building the first physical prototype.Additional context: Big data are driving additional efficiency in the production process with the application of simulation techniques to the already large volume of data that production generates. The increasing deployment of the “Internet of Things” is also allowing manufacturers to use real-time data from sensors to track parts, monitor machinery, and guide actual operations.
When the Pentium Pro processor was introduced back in 1995, we shipped fewer than a million servers based on Intel processors, and less than 10% of the revenue spent on all server hardware was based on Intel architecture and 90% was based on these other proprietary architectures. And what you’ve seen since is a dramatic growth in the total volume of servers, with a significant portion of that driven by Intel based processors. And of course today the industry ships per IDC a little over 8 million servers a year, with 8 out of 10 of those servers based on Intel. Little did we know back in 1995 that we were one of key ingredients coming together to enable the transformation of the internet and the growth of the worldwide web. The ability to have a standard high volume server so that the internet users could scale in a cost effective manner, combined with the standards of the time: HTML, HTTP. All of that combined with the software, such as Apache web servers and Netscape browsers. All of these factors converged to create the internet phenomena and drive that growth. Of course we didn’t forecast that with the Pentium Pro processor, but we’re very proud to have been a part of it.
Key points:The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family offers ~80% higher performance on key industry benchmarksOn some synthetic technical computing focused benchmarks we are seeing even high results – over 2X but typical user experience should see improvements closer to 80%Comparisons are top bin 5600 to top bin 2600 in 2S configurationStory:Compared to the best Intel Xeon processor 5600 series part, the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family offers significant performance improvements across a range of workloads. What you’ll see on this slide is a cross section of enterprise and technical computing workloads that give a flavor of the scale of benefits that a typical user would see. For example on integer throughput (aka SPECint_rate) which is a good proxy for a typical enterprise server shows ~70% improvement while technical computing workloads – think everything from supercomputers crunching advanced physics problems to workstations rendering media content - are seeing even stronger results. You may notice that I’ve said that we’re seeing up to 80% performance improvement but actually have measured results over 2X – those results are specific, synthetic benchmarks that are focused on testing specific elements of the processor such as STREAMs which measures memory and LINPACK which is used to rank supercomputer’s theoretical computational power and we’re seeing fantastic results based on the latest microarchitecture, but when I talk to you about performance I want to make sure that I set the right expectation about what you should expect to see when you run you applications that utilize every part of the server not just narrow elements. So what enables us to deliver this kind of performance improvement vs. the prior generation even though these parts are on the same manufacturing technology?

Intel Xeon-based servers have long been adopted by IT shops as the leading compute building blocks. And the most popular Xeon-based newest servers today are based on the Xeon E5-2600 processor series which offers advanced capabilities that simplify and save.To meet the growing demands of IT such as readiness for cloud computing, the growth in users and the ability to tackle the most complex technical problems, Intel has focused on increasing the capabilities of the processor that lies at the heart of a next generation data center. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is the next generation Xeon processor that replaces Platforms based on the Intel Xeon processor 5600 & 5500 series. These processors offer better than ever performance no matter what your constraint is – floor space, power or budget – and on workloads that range from the most complicated scientific exploration to simple, yet crucial, web serving and infrastructure applications. Building on the success of it’s Xeon 5600 predecessor, the E5-2600 product family has increased processor core count and cache size in addition to supporting more efficient instructions with Intel® Advance Vector Extensions, to deliver up to an average of 80% more performance across a range of workloads. In addition to the raw performance gains, we’ve invested in improved I/O with Intel Integrated I/O which reduces latency ~30% while adding more lanes and higher bandwidth with support for PCIe 3.0. This helps reduce network and storage bottlenecks to unleash the performance capabilities of the latest Xeon processor. Deploying the E5-2600 can reduce your total cost of ownership by up to 66% via savings in utilities, software support and maintenance.
