  • Can you keep up with business demand for innovation?It’s an age of innovation, driven by technology, cloud computing is largely responsible as the enabling technology model responsible for that transformation.Adoption is staggering and continues to grow. Studies show that 88% of new enterprise commercial applications will move to the cloud. Up to 30% of IT budgets are being allocated to cloud. 74% of enterprises are using some form of private, public cloud or hybrid cloud services and the public cloud market is projected to reach 73B by 2015. The reason is clear. Today, IT is all about delivering innovation to the business. So the question becomes: Can you keep up with the business demand for innovation?Source: *[Avanade 2011 Cloud Global Survey] +[Harvey Nash global CIO Survey 2011] + IDC, Top Ten Predictions….

  • This slide tells you what people use each type of cloud service for…Software distribution model where applications are hosted by a provider and delivered to users through the cloud.Server management model where an entity outsources the equipment they use to support IT operations. Key point – flexibility to scale up /down especially holiday times – selling products online. Hardware rental model including pre-installed OS and software, storage, and network capacity over the Internet.
  • Archive data- Because object storage is often a cost-effective storage architecture, it is particularly well suited for data that is largely static in nature. Increasingly, document retention mandates, whether driven by regulatory requirements or business policy, necessitate long term storage solutions that are more secure and easily accessed versus bankers boxes in a warehouse or tape backup. In addition, data integrity can be assured with object storage. Objects are tagged with a unique identifier, which guarantees the immutability of that object thus guaranteeing the data has not been modified or tampered with. Backup Data. The savvisdirect Cloud Storage API makes automating the storage and replication of critical data part of your everyday business routines. For your business processes and applications that generate large volumes of data that cannot be lost Cloud Storage serves as a reliable data storage solution that includes a high-availability option for storing your data objects in our East and West coast data center facilities. This high-availability option is completely automated by savvisdirect which to make this option easy for you to use. In cases where you choose to restore from your Cloud Storage disk, simply use any broadband Internet connection to access and download the files you need to get your business up and running again.

Of course, you can select an open source Linux OS image or Windows 2008 commercial server license and load your own development, content, and custom application-oriented software. Pay by hour or month. Web application development – to easily replicate the software build and test and launch process without having to continually invest in new servers and infra.

  • 19. Category: Retail AE: Aaron Murphy SE: Steve Hobbs Case Study: Hxxx Yxxx • • • • Industry: Retail Background: Small family owned HVAC shop. Current CTL customer with 5 locations. Solution/Products Sold: Hosted Exchange. 220 Exchange users, Why Customer Bought/Factors: Customer needed to free up limited internal IT resources, was spending to much time on maintaining their premises MS exchange server. Also did not want to purchase latest MS Exchange 2010 and load it on a new server • Does (what customer does with our product) Exchange 2010 and Outlook provide a seamless email experience across the customers PCs, phones and browsers.

  • 20. Evolution of Memory Storage 21
  • 21. Top Uses for IaaS Object Cloud Storage Archive Data Archive items static in nature to meet retention and regulatory policies, ensure data integrity over time. Back up Data Prevent data loss in the event of hardware failure. Redundant data center availability can ensure data is available at any time. Top industries: - Legal - Healthcare - Software developers
  • 22. Case Study: Cxxxxxx Medical Center • • • • • • Category: Medical AE: Tracy Wertz SE: Robert Williams/Fred Gardner Industry: Medical Background: Multi-location regional hospital with a single datacenter. Solution/Products Sold: Savvis Cloud Storage with Riverbed Whitewater cloud storage gateway. Why Customer Bought/Factors: Customer knew they needed a better solution to store patient information than a non-redundant SAN/Tape system at a single, nonhardened datacenter. They did not have the budget or staff to build a redundant inhouse solution. They were concerned with maintaining regulatory compliance (HIPPA) with an outsourced solution. Cloud Storage became a compelling solution for them when combined with the Riverbed Whitewater appliance. Cloud storage offered scalable, resilient infrastructure with predictable costs, while the Riverbed Whitewater, because it integrates seamlessly with the Savvis Storage API and existing customer backup systems, was able to assuage their regulatory concerns by assuring data integrity, in-flight and at-rest encryption, and detailed logging of data transfers. Does (what customer does with our product): Allows the customer to meet the data integrity and retention component of their regulatory requirements while maintaining the privacy and security components of this same regieme. Means (what “Does” means to the customer): Customer’s crucial patent records are securely backed up while maintaining regulatory compliance. 23
