  • 1. End-­‐to-­‐End  Op*miza*on  Cisco  Unified  Compu*ng  Technology  
  • 2.   Secure-­‐24  Overview    Secure-­‐24  &  SAP    Secure-­‐24  &  Cisco    Prac*cal  Case  Study  –  Moving  Physical  to  UCS    Ques*ons  Agenda  
  • 3. Founded   2001  Headquarters   Southfield,  Michigan  Services   Applica7on  hos7ng,  enterprise  cloud  compu7ng,  complete  IT  outsourcing  Data  Centers   Michigan  (3),  plus  global  partnerships  IT  Innova*on.  Business  Value.  Cloud  &  Hos*ng  Leadership  
  • 4.   SAP-­‐Cer7fied  Hos7ng  Partner    SAP-­‐Cer7fied  Cloud  Provider    SAP-­‐Cer7fied  Mobile  Provider    SAP  2010  Pinnacle  Award  Finalist  for  IT  Outsourcing    1  of  3  selected  from  150+  Global  Cer7fied  Hos7ng  Partners    Only  US  Partner    SAP  Flagship  ERP  Offering  Secure-­‐24  and  SAP  
  • 5.   Strategic  Partners  -­‐  Helping    customers  transi7on  to  the    private/hybrid  cloud    Three  specific  areas    UCS-­‐Based  Data  Center  –  most  cost-­‐effec7ve,  scalable  virtualiza7on  plaWorm    Cisco  Tidal  SAP  Automa7on  soXware    Cisco  equipment  runs  core  network  infrastructure      Secure-­‐24  and  Cisco  
  • 6.   Improved  deployment  7melines      -­‐  Faster  provisioning  -­‐  Faster  implementa7on  -­‐  Faster  7me  to  value    Expandable  plaWorm  characteris7cs    Flexibility  to  do  physical  reloca7ons    Massive  resources  available  for  SAP  –    ability  to  provision  quickly    UCS-­‐Based  Data  Center  
  • 7. UCS-­‐Based  Data  Center  
  • 8.   Ini7ally  did  an  evalua7on  that    included  POC    Deployed  UCS  systems  internally    for  approximately    6  months    Have  been  using  UCS  systems    now  for  approximately  18  months    Currently  have  around  270  UCS  blades  varying  from  4cpu  12GB  to  40cpu  256GB  RAM  deployed  between  3  datacenters      UCS-­‐Based  Data  Center  
  • 9. UCS-­‐Based  Data  Center    Service  Profile  Templates  –  Ensure  all  node’s  in  a  vSphere  Cluster  are  100%  consistent  and  based  off  a  central  template.    Palo  (  M81KR  )  –  Ability  to  dynamically  create  network  interfaces  /  HBA’s  as  required  based  on  design    vNIC  templates  and  upda7ng  vNIC  templates    -­‐    An  upda7ng  template  allows  a  change  to  be  made  in  one  place  and  automa7cally  pushed  to  service  profiles  linked  to  said  template    (  e.g.  adding  a  vlan  in  a  vmware  cluster)    High  performance  /  low  latency  –    As  virtualiza7on  density  increases,  providing  10  gig  connec7vity  to    an  ESXi  host.    Provide  complete  redundancy  of  VMware  infrastructure    U7lize  the  cugng  edge  Intel  CPU’s  with  extended  memory  that  can  s7ll  run  at  1333Mhz    What  made  Secure-­‐24  decide  on  UCS    
  • 10. UCS-­‐Based  Data  Center  ROI    Hard  Cost    Number  of  10  gig  ports    Number  of  FC  ports    Human  Resources    Time  to  deploy    Central  Management    Availability    Focus  on  redundancy    Less  chance  of  human  failure  
  • 11. Case  Study  Company  Headquarters   Bal7more,  MD  SAP  End-­‐users   2,500  +  Key  Products  /Markets   Chemical  Number    of  Servers   50  Overview:    Chemical  Division  of  Fortune  500  Company  sold  to  Offshore  Company.    Largest  sale  of  U.S.  Company  to  Saudi  interests.        Results  a  reference  account  with  tremendously  lower  TCO  Issues:        No  SAP  technical  staff    Hardware  refreshment    Disaster  recovery    Budget  constraints    Upgrade  project  in  6  months    Three  months  to  get  self  sufficient    SAP,  Hyperion,  Exchange,  SharePoint  
  • 12.   Current  Situa7on    Equipment  between  3-­‐5  years  old    Total  number  of  Physical  servers  –  46    Total  CPU/Memory  requirements                                      Datacenter  A    -­‐  114cpu’s/520GB                                            Datacenter  B  -­‐    110cpu’s/480GB    Proposed  configura7on    Datacenter  A  –  UCS  cluster  with  7  20cpu  x  96GB  Ram  blades    Datacenter  B  –  UCS  cluster  with  7  20cpu  x  96GB  Ram  blades  Total  of  14  New  Blades  vs.  46  Physical  Servers      Case  Study  
  • 13.   6  Week  Project!    Migra7on  of  9  physical  and  10  VM  produc7on  systems      Migra7on  of  13  physical  and  14  VM  non-­‐produc7on  systems    Windows  Domain  Changed    PI  7.00  SP13  migrated  along  with  Cer7ficates  changed  to  new  domain    Parallel  export  /  import  using  FTP  method  to  reduce  down7me  Case  Study  System Type Source  Database DB  Version OS  Version Current  Size Source  Method Export  Time DB  Version OS  Version Import  TimeR3 ABAP MSSQL 2005 2003 1650GB DB  Parallel  Export 8:30  Hrs 2008  R2 2008  R2 5:00  HrsHR ABAP MSSQL 2005 2003 210GB DB  Parallel  Export 3:00  Hrs 2008  R2 2008  R2 3:00  HrsBI ABAP Oracle 10.2.0.2 2003 665GB DB  Parallel  Export 5:00  Hrs 11.2.0.3 2008  R2 4:00  HrsXI ABAP+Java MSSQL 2005 2003 50GB DB  Parallel  Export 4:00  Hrs 2008  R2 2008  R2 3:00  HrsEP Java Oracle 10.2.0.2 2003 50GB DB  Parallel  Export 2:00  Hrs 11.2.0.3 2008  R2 2:00  HrsBJ Java Oracle 10.2.0.2 2003 50GB DB  Parallel  Export 2:00  Hrs 11.2.0.3 2008  R2 2:00  HrsSM ABAP+Java MaxDB 7.6.02 2003 100GB Fresh  Install 7.8.02 2008  R2WD Web  Dispatcher 2003 Fresh  Install 2008  R2WD Web  Dispatcher 2003 Fresh  Install 2008  R2
