No Cloud Without Automation! Because Cloud ComputingWill Be an Epic FailWithout Automation Hans-Christian Boosboos@arago.dehttp://www.hcboos.net

Legacy Computing 4 | Data Center Hardware OS / Standard Software Shared Applications Individual Applications IT Did Not Change As Much As We Like to Tell Everyone Else !
The Problem With Legacy Computing The Number of IT Systems and Thus the Dependency on IT Systems Increases Constantly 5 | Number of IT Applications Time
The Problem With Legacy Computing 6 | Staff Infrastructure Operational Cost (RTB) Number of IT Applications Time Operating Cost of IT Has Grown Exponentially. (Today 53% of Cost is Infrastructure)
The Problem With Legacy Computing 7 | Staff Infrastructure You Are Here Operational Cost (RTB) Number of IT Applications IT Budget Time Unfortunately, IT Budgets Are Capped !
Why Did We Come that Far ??? Management Approach Standardization Consolidation Tool Approach Process Management Workbench Improvement 8 |
Tools Stopped Us From Drowning ! 9 | Service Discovery Event Handling Job Management Provisioning / Config Mgmt Data Center Hardware OS / Standard Software Shared Applications Individual Applications Monitoring / xPM
Clouds Do It All ! Distribution Eliminates Overcapacity Real-time Scalability Supports Business 14 |
If Everything Went into the Cloud ! 15 | Staff Infrastructure You Are Here Operational Cost (RTB) Number of IT Applications IT Budget Time Budget Constraints Would Be Met, Innovation Would Be Boosted and IT Would Become Green !
The Two Problems With the Cloud Not Everything Can Go into the Cloud Operational Staff Expenses Increase 16 |
Most Things Are Not Cloudable ! Standardization Required ! Reimplementation Required ! 17 |
What Is Cloudable R&D Number Crunching None Differentiating Applications 18 |
What Is NOT Cloudable (yet) ? More Than 70% of All Business Critical IT Systems and Applications 19 |
And Operational Expense Grows 20 | Parallelization Increases Complexity Dynamic Scaling Increases Complexity Dynamic Distribution Increases Complexity
The Cloud Is Missing an Essential ! 21 | Staff “Cloud Staff” Infrastructure Cloud Infrastructure You Are Here Operational Cost (RTB) Number of IT Applications IT Budget Time Clouds Still Overcompensate Savings through Increase in Operational Cost.
So How Can We Fix That and Make Full Use of the Cloud ?
Compensate Additional Operational Requirements by Automating Decisions 23 | Automated ITSM Processes Automated Service Desk Automated Run-Books Automated Config. Mgmt Automated Event-Mgmt. Auto Pilot Workload Automation Automated Provisioning Automated Discovery Automated Correlation Compliance Reporting Data-Center Automation Automated Root-Cause-Analysis
Automation Old Style 24 | Plattform/OS Infrastructure Apps Start End Today We Believe That Automation Means Creating “a Script” In One Way or the Other Application Operation
It Is All About Knowledge ! 25 | Knowledge Repository Application Operation Infrastructure Apps Platforms/OS To Perform a Task All You Do Is Recombine What You Already Know
An Autopilot System 26 | Knowledge Repository Decision Decision Decision Start An Autopilot Will Evaluate a Situation Step-By-Step Recombining Available Knowledge To Fulfill the Task at Hand End Analysis Analysis Analysis Analysis
Unlocking the Cloud With Autopilot for IT Operation “The Autopilot unlocks the Cloud because it allows for none standard images as well as constant change and dynamic reallocation” PS: And It Also Works on Legacy Systems While They Are on Their Way to the Cloud 27 |
Cloud + Autopilot = Happiness ! 28 | Staff Infrastructure You Are Here Operational Cost (RTB) Number of IT Applications IT Budget Time Budget Constraints ARE Met, IT Is Green and Innovation Finally Gets the Funding It Deservers
So Who Will Hate It? 29 | “Lazy, unproductive “dead wood” people who can now hide behind complex IT language and let their fellow team members do all the work!”
Let´s Go and Change the World….. 30 | … Thanx a Million
