This session spotlights an emerging opportunity for network service providers: Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), the delivery of virtual desktops from the public cloud via service providers. IDC predicts that the hosted virtual desktop market will have an 85% CAGR over the next five years. Cloud workloads at multi-tenant data centers (MTDC) are growing at 3X the rate of traditional data centers, while telecommunications services consumed by cloud companies grew 41% in the last two years.

By following the migration to MTDCs and aligning with the right partners to build a differentiated solution, can network service providers grow revenue by expanding their highest-margin services faster than before. Panelists represent best-in-class vendors for storage, desktop-as-a-service, compute, ecosystem interconnection and a global delivery platform. Learn how NetApp, Desktone, Cisco, and Equinix have partnered to create a DaaS “infrastructure in a box” that helps service providers launch innovative services that can deliver new revenue streams, greater customer value and loyalty.

Topics covered:
• The service bundle: simplified solution stack packaging, infrastructure through application, "revenues in a box"

• Key benefits: low latency, security, time to market and location flexibility (e.g. the ability to offer the service when and where customer base needs it, versus where the NSP has physical data center capacity)

• Third-party validation

  • Secular trend that is occurring globally: cloud data center traffic is growing exponentially but concentrated in a fewer number of locations (MTDCs).
  • This is the first slide of some analyst data that points to performance as a barrier – do they agree?
  • At its most fundamental level, the implication boils down to a margins problem and a performance problem. This slide speaks to margin. The next two slides speak to performance. Slides 4 & 5 might fit better behind the first trend slide. Slide Legend: the icon buildings in the bottom corners are Enterprise offices. Imagine the cloud in the center is Verizon’s network. The picture of the building in top right could be an IBX or any MTDC for that matter. The trend is in compute workloads moving into MTDCs. The place for the Network Service Provide (NSP) to be is the MTDC where all the cloud traffic is aggregating and where they can sell their higher-margin Private IP services which offer the most in terms of secure, integrated, high-performance application delivery to end-users at a reasonable cost.This is a opportunity rather than a network architectural challenge. You could move to where the cloud is convening and meet all the cloud service providers and supply chain partners there. The cloud is a proxy to Enterprise customers. {this not in the picture but we should think about how we can illustrate it} Additionally, all the managed services and stuff that hangs off cloud compute like storage will increasingly be moving into the MTDC. So pull through effect. Additionally,
  • Right circle: the average rate of CC growth in our top 5 cloud markets over the past 2 years:  DC, SV, AM, SY and NY.Bottom Circle: discuss what global enterprise is spending to reach the Cloud.  We indexed CC spending to: 1 Region: 12 Region: 7x3 Region: 35x
  • The Equinix value proposition should be positioned as Platform Equinix™ – and what it can do for customers.  Platform Equinix™ Key message: Equinix is the best platform to help customers grow. Neutral Data CentersEquinix helps you improve performance with reliable, well-connected data centers.Neutrality means you choose from hundreds of network service providers to create your own “custom blend” of price and performanceRedundant network paths from the many networks enhance reliability and resiliency“Never go dark” capacity expansion philosophy means ample space and power for growthGlobalA single global partner speeds time to market, simplifies your global expansion plans and offers a consistent experience across strategic markets Ecosystems Tapping into your business ecosystem via the suppliers in our sites is the answer to the challenges of the digital supply chain, and makes it easy to reach more partners, suppliers and customers  Platform Equinixconsolidates these key ingredients for growth into a network of sites distributed across the world’s most important markets.
  • SOLUTION: SHOWS all the advantages in EQX – ecosystesm of customers plus ethernet exchange plus proximitySound bytes can be pulled from the recent Network-Cloud webinar with Jim Poole, GoGrid, & Light Reading. This is the URL to the recording:
  • Just as Cloud is a proxy to Enterprise customers, it’s similarly a proxy for IT apps. The type of end-user with deployments in multi-region would be serving a multi-national type enterprise with significant demands for space and power, and the deal sizes are much larger. The NSP is not going to outgrow it’s initial investment with us as we have the most capacity of anyone. A better slide title might be “Not all MTDC space is created equal” or “Choose Wisely” or “Invested in Your Services Expansion”
  • Sidebar = customer counts by region.
  • So now that you’ve figured out your latency targets, what’s the best way to achieve them while still hitting costs targets? Traditional delivery of applications across the globe can be wildly unpredictableMost networks are very good in-region – cross-region is the challenge. Choice in the location of a data center allows you to use the appropriate networks to optimize your applications.Latency traps include network hops, switch hops, router hops, distance, public internet98 percent of latency is a function of fiber miles – so distance is the most important considerationNetworks are optimized for AS hops; however, performance is still subject to congestion, distance and failure points Key message: The more direct you make the network path, the better performance you achieve.Dan’s Script: Now let’s bring it all together.You saw our “platform” earlier in the presentation.You saw some examples of customer use cases.We discussed why applications matter and introduced the concept of multi-tiered architecture.This is how we see you deploying within Platform Equinix. We don’t want you to have one large regional deployment. Instead, we want you to take full advantage of our global platform and get within 10ms of 90% of the North American and European population, as well as targeting the leading Asia Pacific markets. The more direct you make the network path, the better performance you achieve and the more competitive you will become globally. Supporting message – Defend critical revenue streamsEquinix customers can achieve a 15% latency advantage by leveraging multiple network providers in an IBX.  Supporting message – Optimize reliability and redundancyLocating inside an Equinix IBX enables you to cross connect to the Internet backbone, which:Eliminates expense and extended provisioning time of local loopsImproves reliabilityReduces the possibility of congested popsImproves overall user experience by reducing TCP re-transmission, which impacts serving content (web pages) Supporting message – Improve end-user experienceOur data centers are less than 10ms latency from 90% of the population of Europe and North America. Also located in leading markets in Asia Pacific.
