Transcript

  • 1. Web Mapping Cloud Deployment- Lessons from the Field Presented by: Michael Lippmann Blue Raster Applications Moving to the Cloud Location Intelligence GeoCloud 2010 September 22, 2010
  • 2. Challenge- Develop/Deploy in 30 days Client  Health and Human Services - HRSA Need  Health Care Reform 2010  Presidential initiative  Double the number of Community Health Centers nationally from 1200 to 2400  90 day window to submit grants for a pool of >$1B
  • 3. Web Mapping Requirement  Deploy a web mapping application to assist with grant process  Non-negotiable - System must be online when grant period opens  Week 1- significant utilization  Middle Weeks- use, but not at peak  Approaching deadline- last minute use spike
  • 4. Requirements High availability application  Downtime not an option-Redundancy High Performance  Subsecond performance for maps Capacity  Grant applicants will depend on system  $1B+ being applied for
  • 5. Why we went “Cloud”- Perishable App • Ability to scale to immediately- Day 1 • Ability to deploy 5 load balanced map servers for peak demand • Managed services for scaling based on use • Lower demand = turn servers off • ESRI Cloud allowed peak use for short period of time • On Day 90- system may be turned off.
  • 6. Old Way, Cloud Way Old Cloudy – Web Mapping • 5x Servers • 10x Servers • order, setup, deploy, • Deploy – right click, wait 5 maintain minutes • 168 Hours x $6/hr = ~$1000 • 5x Licenses • Peak -$1000/week • $300k capital • Non-peak – $250/week • After 90 days not needed! • $30k for grant period • Bottom line- allows for scale up/down with much lower capital outlay
  • 7. How we did it- Hybrid Solution ESRI  ArcGIS Server -Cloud Infrastructure Amazon  EC2  ESRI ArcGIS Server for web mapping  S3/CloudFront  Map tile cache hosting Hosting.com  vCloud hosting (using VMware)  Adobe ColdFusion  Microsoft SQL Server
  • 8. Load Estimation
  • 9. Registrations
  • 10. UDSmapper.org
  • 11. What we Learned- Moving tiles into the cloud- • Trying to upload 45 Million map tiles = #FAIL • Simply copying that many files takes >1 day • Load with Amazon Import/Export  Use fastest HD you can find- WD 10k SATA  Took 20 hours to load files  Within 48 hours files are online and ready to use • Manage with CloudBerry  Change permissions/setup CloudFront
  • 12. Hybrid Choices Hosting.com Managed Services- Windows 2008 R2  Servers online is not as immediate as Amazon- but you have a person to call  Machines setup and has 24/7/365 team to monitor and assist as needed  Both flavors of Cloud are important in the future.
  • 13. Launch Day- Plan for Anything • You will have DOWNTIME, need to manage it • Launch Day- 2 events caused unplanned downtime  Amazon S3 Outage- extremely rare but it happens  Datacenter – Cisco switch failure
  • 14. Health Check your Site Setup tools to watch all of your servers  Recommend Pingdom- found it when Twitter had an outage  SAAS Monitoring service  Uses global array of servers to test and notify of issues
  • 15. Amazon Health Check http://status.aws.amazon.com/
  • 16. If we did it again… we might: Use even more Amazon S3/CloudFront to cache repeatable operations  Geometry request for boundaries- states/counties/HPSA  Gzip/cache speeds load  Cache directly in Amazon- avoid transfer  CloudFront- now has immediate expiration
  • 17. Risks of Cloud • Amazon is great…but many cannot handle unknown risk of elastic pricing • Need team that can administer • Technical saavy – new paradigm • Changes rapidly – must keep up
  • 18. Conclusions/Questions • Deployment was successful, next one will be easier and better • Cloud for web mapping cannot be ignored • Hybrid solutions work very well • Focus on your business requirements, outsource all of the rest • Simple is always best
