  • So let’s start with the data centre to understand where we're at the moment – what’s happening there ?As you can see here, there’s multiple influences effecting the data centre right now – some are external and others internal.From an external perspective, there’s a number of key factors in the environment that are having a critical impact on the data centre right now. The current worldwide financial environment is driving most organisations to reduce costs and look for better ways of managing costs in the data centre. From an environmental and sustainability perspective there’s increasing focus on the green agenda and the need to use energy in a much more efficient way, particularly due to rapidly rising energy costs. The impact of both manmade and natural risk elements is driving a more significant focus on readiness for disasters and how to cope with the rapidly increasing sophistication of cybercrime.The data centre needs to continually adapt to these influences, given they’re constantly changing.Similarly, within the data centre, there’s a growing need to modernise, standardise and opimise the IT assets. There’s an increasing need to better manage and control what is going on within the data centre to achieve better responsiveness in an increasingly 24/7 business environment. At the same time, organisations are having to consolidate, virtualise, automate and share their resources and overall, transform their assets, operation and organisation. Whilst this is happening, new technology innovations such as convergence or fabric based infrastructures hold the promise of aiding transformation to future states.The bottom line here is that the majority of organisations are having to rethink their enterprise data centre strategies right now as a result of both these external and internal pressures.
  • So where are we now in the data centre?If you look at the figures on breakdown of the IT budget, around 70% is still going into running the business – keeping the lights on and only 30% into new projects.The reason for this is due to significant IT sprawl that still exists in most organisations – IT assets have been added in a piecemeal fashion – one application per server – as businesses have merged and made acquisitions, this sprawl has increased adding to costs of operations and lack of flexibility and response time.Further, with new developments like virtualisation, without managing these adequately, the sprawl shift s from physical to include virtual as well.The focus of IT is on managing the physical assets here rather than focusing on what services the business really needs.
  • Every organization is on a journey in terms of IT. It’s a journey that involves a number of steps. Those steps allow an organization to improve the maturity and capability of its infrastructure and operations while, at the same time, reducing costs. It’s also a journey mapped out by converged infrastructure. There are a series of steps that start off by standardizing and aligning resources, reducing the variability of resources, then to virtualize those resources to turn them into shared resource pools, then to look at automating processes and eventually move to a service centric approach.And then to a much better alignment between IT and the business. So, IT’s role will change in this journey. On the left hand side, IT’s role is really as a manager of physical assets, the IT infrastructure components. On the right, the role of IT is as a strategic service broker where IT or the CIO is responsible for acquiring services both internal and external to the organization and configuring them into a form that’s going to be needed to create the outcomes defined by the business and as you can see, one of the factors which is pulling organizations along this journey is the advent of cloud, looking at the movement from internal to private to public clouds.
  • Simplifying Converged Infrastructure into integrated and optimized systemsA complete portfolio to accelerate your business goalsAll the goodness of CI extended into the application
  • So how can you move to cloud readiness?It’s certainly a journey which takes organisations months and years depending on where They're now.To be successful, you need to have a good understanding where you are now and where you want to go and then to be able to define a series of bite sized projects that allow you to move between both of the states along multiple dimensions which take into account technology, process and people elements I described earlier.At HP, over the last few years we have developed a comprehensive roadmap for the journey which, for each of the stages I have talked about in the previous slides defines benchmarks across a range of critical readiness criteria that are needed for cloud enablement.A key learning here is to keep the respective levels in each of the criteria categories to a similar level as possible, as big differences between criteria at a particular stage will result in not been able to achieve the full potential of this stage.
  • Here you can see more details on the individual readiness criteria.Describe the criteria

  • Unlike other approaches that attempt to solve integration and optimization demands of one type of application environment – such as virtualization – or Data Warehousing – only HP addressing the complete continuum of application delivery needs acrosss virtual, cloud and dedicated environments. This represents the first portfolio to address the 3 ways clients deploy applications today in a common way with investment protection.Each systems is built on proven technology – now integrated, simplified and optimized.HP VirtualSystem = delivers an optimized virtual server or virtual client environment. It’s designed to take the complexity out of achieving the best performance for virtual workloads, reduce costs and complexity as the environment grows and to simplify management on an on-going basis.VirtualSystem also shares the same core HW architecture as a CloudSystem (Blades/3PAR/LH/VC/E-Series) – so when customers are ready to expand to a fully automated, private or hybrid cloud environment, it’s a simple upgrade of the management stack. No changes to the physical architecture.HP CloudSystem is all about speed to application delivered through the industry’s most complete automation capability across infrastructure and applications. Very strong market reaction since January, ramping quickly with strong interest from both Enterprise and Service Providers.HP AppSystems are focused on maximum performance, uptime and SLA’s for business-critical applications such as Business Intelligence, Analytics and collaboration environments. Think of these as dedicated and highly-optimized to deliver the best performance for one application or application suite. It’s not our goal to boil the ocean and develop an AppSystem for every app, but focus on where we can add the most value and solve the biggest issues for customers. The uniqueness of AppSystem is that this portfolio is modular to ensure each aspect of BI or collaboration environment performs best-in-class. What they are – positioning – the problem they solveWhat is – bringing it all togetherwhat it iswhat problem it solveswhy it's unique?How it accelerates your business - consolidatedWhy only HP - continuum
