  1. 1. Enterprise IT in the Cloud Greg Arnette CTO & Co-founder  Sonian, Inc ____________________________
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><ul><li>About Sonian </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Why the AWS cloud is good for Sonian and the enterprise </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Our choices - why AWS won over other grids </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Business model ties directly to infrastructure costs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Architecture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Q & A  </li></ul></ul>____________________________
  3. 3. About Sonian <ul><li>Sonian is the Cure for Email Chaos </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Web service solving the content archiving problem for businesses of all sizes. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First to deploy an enterprise archive solution based on cloud compute infrastructure.  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Created software stack to live in cloud compute environment. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sell direct and through many VARS and OEM partners.  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Founder and angel group financed. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>____________________________
  4. 4. AWS cloud is good for the enterprise <ul><li>Solve one IT pain point with a cloud solution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sonian creates virtual customer specific data silos. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be more secure than a company's own IT data center. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enterprises care about afforability without sacrificing security, reliability, scalability. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>AWS has all the right ingredients: Data replication, availability zones, international footprint. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sonian plus AWS is a secure, virtual extension of a customers own IT infrastructure. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Archiving is perfect for cloud compute. </li></ul></ul>____________________________
  5. 5. Why we chose AWS over other grids <ul><li>AWS is the most complete cloud solution available </li></ul><ul><ul><li>2006 - Started researching use of cloud compute to solve archive problem. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sun Grid was too expensive, required Solaris. $1 Gb, $1 CPU hour. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>S3 was really appealing, but compute component wasn't available in 2006. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2007 - EC2 announced. With S3 a powerful combination in the cloud. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sonian needs storage and compute in the same data center. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Great brand connotation with “Amazon”.  </li></ul></ul>____________________________
  6. 6. SaaS business model scales with costs <ul><li>AWS &quot;pay as you go&quot; benefits Sonian and our customer </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure costs scale directly with usage. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Traditional data center &quot;co-location&quot; requires expensive upfront build out, &quot;waterfall&quot; upgrades when capacity needs to increase. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>With cloud, infrastructure costs are predictable & linear. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First time a SaaS business can create a software stack that is completely self-aware of it's own operating costs. </li></ul></ul>____________________________
