  • Today’s customers knowledge and understanding of cloud has matured to the point that Gartner reports that 78% of enterprises between 2012 and 2014 will be deploying a private cloud. They understand that cloud-based service delivery is not about cost savings but delivering speed, flexibility and agility to their organization. Customers have developed an understanding of what is needed to achieve these benefits --- they need better cloud management solutions that delivers automation and comprehensive orchestration of services. This type of solution helps IT make the transition from virtualization and abstraction to transparent end-to-end service delivery. Because business do not make decisions that support IT --- cloud enables IT to align more closely than ever before with the decisions and fast pace of today’s business environment. Once again, the early adopters of cloud-based service delivery have discovered that cloud frees up their IT staff to focus on those projects that they previously were unable to get to --- projects that create strategic or competitive advantage in their marketplace for their organization.
  • The foundational elements of cloud computing that enables IT organization to advance their cloud deployments and achieve greater speed, flexibility and agility include: Self-service portals & service menusAuthorizing customers to order from a standardized list of service menus and provisioning templates facilitates wide-scale automation that significantly increases resource setup and availability. Service delivery automationAutomation is critical to organizations unifying and standardizing data centers as it simplies operations, reduces costs and drives business flexibility. Operational process automationAutomation of operational processes reduces the risk and latency of standing up and managing both physical and virtual resources. Resource management Large-scale cloud models require performance isolation and efficient utilization of hardware infrastructure. A cloud management system ensures isolation from noisy neighbors as well as the ability to share resources across multiple users. Lifecycle management This is all about managing the service from request through decommissioning of the service. The organization benefits from optimized utilization of resources --- whether human, virtual or physical. Automation of the decommissioning resources reduces under-utilization of resources while virtually effectively reducing virtual server sprawl.
  • From our perspective at Cisco, we see theworld quickly evolving to a situation where there aremany different types of clouds.By harnessing the power of public, private, hybrid clouds or traditional data centers, IT organizations can more rapidly deliver value to the business.Although many of our enterprise customers are starting by deploying a private cloud, they also want the flexibility to take advantage of options that are available to them via the public cloud from service providers.It may not surprise you to realize that service providers around the world are launching their cloud services based on Cisco technology. Cisco is uniquely positioned to help IT organizations prepare for this world of private, public, and hybrid clouds – based on the Cisco Unified Data Center platform. 
  • As customers move from simple uses of the cloud like compute as service to more complex uses,IaaS, and ultimately SP class cloud, there is a safe and sane approach to moving through these use cases. The green arrow shows the evolution of the customer use cases and our prescriptive model for the customer journey that starts first from crawl and then to walk, run and sprint.
  • Cisco Unified Data Center is founded on a unified, fabric-based design has been developed from the ground up to integrate technology silos, reduce costs, and improve productivity.   The ideal platform for delivering IT as a Service, Cisco Unified Data Center delivers automated provisioning and management of the shared fabric of compute, network, and storage resources for the delivery of IT services.  It is the unified approach from Cisco and the three pillars of our data center platform are: Unified Fabric (including our data center switching and Nexus product line), Unified Computing (with Cisco UCS), and Cisco Unified Management (which includes our Intelligent Automation portfolio of software products).
  • (Need to rewrite these speaker notes) This framework is similar to the architecture for private cloud recommended by analysts firms like Gartner and Forrester. We’re not trying to replicate all of the existing IT management systems (like your existing service desk / ticketing systems and CMDB) that you use to run your legacy data center environments. Instead, this diagram represents the new capabilities necessary for IT-as-a-Service; the mandatory requirements for this new approach include a self-service portal and orchestration, together with policy-based infrastructure resource management.At the top level of the diagram you have the self-service portal, with on-demand provisioning from a catalog of standardized IT options, governance and approvals, as well as tracking the lifecycle of service usage to prevent sprawl and to enable chargeback or showback. This portal can provide users with a unified online “menu” of options for requesting IT services, whether the infrastructure resources are hosted in your own data centers or potentially sourced externally in a hybrid cloud model.From an automation and integration standpoint, you need to combine the portal with an orchestration engine that can provision the requested service and the underlying infrastructure – with policy-based infrastructure resource management and controls across a shared pool of compute, storage, and network resources, whether physical or virtual.And finally, although IT-as-a-Service demands a new approach, it must complement your legacy systems and management tools. So this new management approach needs to integrate with the existing IT environment for operational processes including monitoring and service assurance, configuration management and a CMDB, as well as business processes like user management in your directory systems and financial management - whether you start with a showback model or evolve to pay-per-use billing and chargeback.
  • The Cisco IAC Starter Edition provides the first step on the journey to the cloud. It allows customers to benchmark their readiness or to scope next steps. Starter Edition provides compute-as-a-service on UCS with multiple applications such as: Self-service and auto-provisioning of virtual machines & blades Provisioning of Windows or Linux bare metal environments Provisioning of applications through templates
  • Cloudsync introduces cloud infrastructure discovery for all the cloud infrastructure elements and the management systems they are connected to. Cloudsync includes built-in inventory re-synchronization as well as the ability to schedule discovery in 1 to 24 hour increments by the administrator. Cloudsync provides the administrator with the ability to control what is available in the catalog for ordering by customers by simply changing the element’s status. For example, changing a status to maintenance mode temporarily removes an element from the catalog to update or correct errors. Ignore permanently removes the element or service from the catalog. This is a Cisco differentiator in the marketplace. Cloudsync provides dashboard visibility to resources, configurations, as well as the ability to instantly recognize new assets and configure into the catalog of services.
  • Includes services and portlets for network ordering and lifecycle management. The NSM adapter permits rapid building of NSM automation for network provisioning that can be completed by a trained customer or through a services engagement. This is the first step in the roadmap for deeper IAC-NSM integration.
  • Cisco IAC provides over 200 extension points for the self-service portal and orchestration workflows that are based on best practices. These extension points protect customer investment in custom extensions for cloud environments by eliminating the need to retool after platform upgrades.
  • OpenStack is an open source cloud computing stack that provides a set of orchestration APIs for resources such as network, compute and storage to allow customers to build out simple to operate, scalable, feature-rich cloud computing environments. On October 15th, Cisco announced the release of OpenStack Cisco Edition which is a community-packaged version of OpenStack Folsom release with open source components plus Cisco-enhanced features including service assurance (high availability), monitoring and networking enabled by Quantum. This package is fully qualified with specific Cisco reference architectures including UCS-B and C servers, Cisco Nexus as well as Intelligent Automation for Cloud. Cisco IAC provides cloud management for OpenStack Cisco Edition, Essex and Folsom via a new multi-cloud accelerator kit released in September. The accelerator kit enables Cisco IAC to have visibility to and management of multiple virtual environments including OpenStack, Amazon EC2 and VMware vCloud Director. When utilizing OpenStack, additional hypervisor support includes: Red Hat RHEV, Citrix XenServer and Microsoft HyperV. Cisco IAC validates OpenStack as a production cloud platform by providing critical elements such as service catalog, organizational multi-tenancy, role-based access control, provisioning workflows beyond OpenStack, bare metal provisioning at the OpenStack layer and Day 2 maintenance activities.
