AWS Summit Auckland 2014 | Hybrid Operation Models in the Enterprise


Published on

Adoption of cloud computing provides access to many new deployment models. But, in many cases, the applications deployed to the cloud need to integrate with existing on-premises resources. This session outlines several key factors to consider from the point of view of a large-scale real IT shop executive. Since each company is unique, this session compares the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and risks of each model and then helps participants create new hybrid orchestration and deployment options for hybrid enterprise environments.

  2. 2. Today our customers: (Typically)
  3. 3. Understand the value of cloud
  4. 4. Understand the value of Amazon Web Services
  5. 5. Know that they will be transitioning more to cloud sometime in the near future
  6. 6. Know they can revolutionize the way they deliver and manage information technology
  7. 7. This is Good!
  8. 8. Today our customers: (Typically)
  9. 9. Have physical datacenter resources
  10. 10. Have legacy applications that are under maintained
  11. 11. Have siloed teams and complicated processes
  12. 12. This is Good! REALITY
  13. 13. Reality •  Your datacenters aren’t going away overnight •  Your applications and infrastructure will need to be reviewed •  Your staff will need to develop some new skills •  Many processes can be optimised •  New tools may be required •  “the show must go on”
  14. 14. Painting the picture of a customer in transition
  15. 15. Enterprise – Technology Landscape High maintenance costs, lack of flexibility Lots of big metal that hasn’t been rethought in a while 2+ Physical datacenters Legacy applications, operating systems, languages, databases Siloed teams limited collaboration About 50% virtualized
  16. 16. Enterprise – Business Landscape Barriers to entry are falling Competition is increasing Cost pressures There is greater transparency into value chains Consumers are more informed Unprecedented levels of disruption
  17. 17. Enterprise - Future Goals Explore new business opportunities Innovate Understand what Big Data means to them Improve DR capabilities Streamline IT Embrace mobile and web apps
  18. 18. “[Enterprise customers are] skipping the years of early getting-their-feet-wet, and immediately jumping in with more significant projects, with more ambitious goals…”
