  • 1. IBM SmartCloud Entry : IBM Starter Kit for Cloud x86 Edition October, 2011
  • 2. Cloud Computing represents a significant growth opportunity Source: Worldwide Enterprise Server Cloud Computing 2011–2015 Forecast IDC #228916 Author(s): Katherine Broderick June 2011
    • $6.2B Cloud server opportunity in 2012
    • 22-26% CAGR 2010-2015 Blades servers
    • 17% CAGR for Rack servers
  • 3. Want to move to Cloud – first … Get off the Treadmill! Free your employees to move the ball forward Explosion of information driving 54% growth in server/storage shipments every year. 70% on average is spent on maintaining current IT infrastructures versus adding new capabilities. In distributed computing environments, up to 85% of computing capacity sits idle. 1.5x 70¢ per $1 85% idle
  • 4. IDC Data: Why Move to the Cloud?
  • 5. Low cost overwhelmingly drives the cloud value proposition, particularly for business users March, 2011 To What Extent Do the Following Aspects of the Cloud Value Proposition Appeal, As it Pertains to Your Job? Answer Selected: Appeals to a Great Extent
    • 65% believe cloud will drive down the cost of running business applications
    • Infrastructure, testing, and SaaS are expected to cost much less than traditional outsourced services by at least 30% to 60%
    • 60% of business executives also expect cloud service delivery cycles to speed up application implementation
    Source:”Cloud will Transform Business as We Know It: The Secret’s in the Source”, Hfs Research, and the London School of Economics, December, 2010
  • 6. Private Cloud Must Haves…. Additionally: High Availability, Fault Tolerance is implied
    • Resource Pooling (storage, processing, memory, virtual machines…)
      • Resources pooled for multiple consumers using a multi-tenant model
      • Resources dynamically assigned/reassigned by consumer demand

      • A consumer can unilaterally provision computing capabilities
      • Not requiring human interaction with each service’s provider
    • Measured Service
      • Systems automatically control, optimize and measure resource use
      • Usage monitoring, control, and reporting provide transparency
  • 7. What is Starter Kit for Cloud?
    • Starter Kit for Cloud….
