    Network-Ready Your Hybrid IT Environment (ENT108) | AWS re:Invent 2013 Network-Ready Your Hybrid IT Environment (ENT108) | AWS re:Invent 2013 Presentation Transcript

    • Network-Ready Your Hybrid IT Environment Sean Iraca, Equinix November 15, 2013
    • Session Agenda • • • • • • Challenge of Cloud Consumption for Enterprises today Enabling Flexible Network Architecture Globally Unique support for AWS Hosted Virtual Interface Use Case Review Going Global Wrap Up
    • Enterprises are expected to focus on deploying a hybrid public/private environment Private Cloud Represents A $20Bn+ Market In 2017 Hybrid offers the best economics Source: IDC – Worldwide Private Cloud IT Infrastructure Forecast (April 2013), McKinsey Cloud Initiative 3
    • Extensive Growth in Cloud Traffic  Shifting Bottleneck from Server and Storage to Network Cloud Data Center Traffic to Grow 4.5-Fold – 2012 to 2017 Cloud IP Traffic Growing at 35%CAGR Over the Next Four Years • 2/3rd of future workloads to be in the cloud - True Cloud workloads growing at 30% CAGR and can support 16.7 workloads per machine Greater Virtualization Driving Workload Migration • Traffic within the data center is 4X larger than traffic outside the data center - Today, only 7% of data goes between DC’s (e.g. metro to metro) and 17% goes to end users Cloud growth driving need for real-time “fat pipes” enabling customers to seamlessly and securely stand-up connections to a range of CSPs “Nirvanix bankruptcy threatened to strand core data if we could not access a direct connection” Source: Cisco Global Cloud Index Report 2013 - Nirvanix Customer 4
    • Enterprises Are Accessing Multiple Cloud/SaaS Infrastructures CIO’s struggling to provide: • Access to multiple cloud platforms • Manage security/data control • Application performance • Hybrid IT deployments IAAS SAAS 5
    • Network Virtualization  Key to enabling Hybrid IT “Network virtualization is the key enabling technology in the hybrid cloud computing era and will enable workload mobility to different geographies and to external cloud providers, as well as network provisioning on demand” Gartner, 2013 Private IT Deployments Hybrid IT Deployments Public Cloud Deployments Cloud Ecosystem is made up of 1200+ Members Network Services “Traditional network architectures do not provide the required flexibility and must evolve to meet todays capacity and agility demands” Gartner, 2013 6
