  • I said there were a few downsides and there are or at least there are some risks you need to be aware of so you can take steps to mitigate against.I am going to cover these in a little more detail but these are your main risks from a legal perspective which you need to cover off ideally before you sign up the contractwith your cloud provider.
  • Customers have many questions in relation to Cloud
  • Industry Changing/New Normal: This slide will transition us into the content of the day.  The concept behind this is that traditional IT has changed over the past few years with the big influence being the down economy.  With reduced budgets, new ways of delivering IT have emerged.  The biggest is cloud.  Many people are turned off by the cloud buzzword, but it is time to embrace the concept and figure out how to incorporate it into  strategic plans for IT. “The only thing that is really changing is the rate of change.” – Peter GuberDemand for resources continues to grow, and budgets will remain flatThe “new normal” for IT: Deliver new and enhanced services, at current budget levels, without increasing risk

    22. 22. Cloud Concepts21What Type of Cloud do I Need?
    23. 23. Types of Cloud22...and it’s very important which types of workloads you are planning to host and inwhich cloudThere are two main flavours of IaaS Clouds:ManagementServerClusterServerClusterServerClusterEnterprise Networking (e.g., VLAN)Enterprise Storage (e.g., SAN)Software Defined Networks(e.g., Security Groups, EIP, ELB,...)ServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksElastic Block StorageEnterprise ClassIaaS (ECI)Commodity IaaS(Commodity Cloud)
    24. 24. 23• Intended for “Cloud applications” (web-scaleapplications)• Designed for scale• VM failure acceptable• Limited high availability in zones/ POD’s(No guarantee on zone reliability)• Applications required to be distributed acrossavailability zones for redundancy• Applications to be designed to handle node levelfailureSoftware Defined Networks(e.g., Security Groups, EIP, ELB,...)ServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksServerRacksElastic Block StorageConcepts & highlightsCommodity IaaS
    25. 25. 24Enterprise Class IaaS• Intended for Enterprise class applications• Designed for performance• VM is protected• Highly availability network• Achieve significant reliability for applicationsrunning in single zone• Achieve redundancy by replicating to secondaryzone• Existing workloads will run reliablyConcepts & highlightsManagementServerClusterServerClusterServerClusterEnterprise Networking (e.g., VLAN)Enterprise Storage (e.g., SAN)
    26. 26. Possible to categorise workloads into two areas25Cloud WorkloadsTraditional Workloads Distributed (Cloud) Workloads• Reliable Hardware platform• High performance• Provides Disaster Recoverycapability• Expect failure. Build apps that canwithstand infrastructure failure• Build application for multi-siteredundancy across zonesExpect reliability. Protect entire cloud.Enterprise Class IaaS (ECI) Commodity CloudExpect failure. Design app for it.
    27. 27. Cloud Concepts26Selection Criteria
    28. 28. Cloud Service Provider Selection271. Do they provide the Cloud Service that meets youneeds? Commodity v. Enterprise2. Do they have in-house Professional Services to assist /perform Cloud migrations?3. Flexible Offering? Connectivity Options?4. Data Sovereignty5. SLA’s? Do they align to your business?6. Pricing? Can they financially justify?7. Security. Does their offering assist you in meeting yourindustry regulation compliance? PCI-DSS, etc.8. Help Desk Support? Service Desk Certification (ISO20000, ITIL)
    29. 29. Criteria for Cloud Service Provider Selection28Security• Regulation Compliance• Data Ownership &Transferability• Privacy• Provider Transparency• AuditabilityCompany and Facilities• Financial Stability• Data Centre Locations• 3rd Party Certifications(eg. ISO, ITIL)• Network Services• Help Desk SupportPricing• Pricing Metrics Comparisons• Fixed vs Variable Rates• In Use vs Inactive• Software Licensing Costs andModelsCompatibility• Help Desk Support• Network Connectivity &Bandwidth• Software Supported• Programming LanguageOfferingsTransaction Performance• Application Availability• Data Accessibility• Processing Speeds• Load Balancing• Scaling Capabilities• SLA OfferingsStorage Performance• Storage Availability• Storage Type• Scaling Capabilities
    30. 30. Migration Strategy29Q. What is the best way to connect to thecloud? MPLS, VPN, Point-2-Point?Q. How do I migrate my serverenvironment?- Limit Risk- Limit migration outageQ. Can I re-use my Licenses in the Cloud?Q. How can I be sure that my environmentwill work in the Cloud?
    31. 31. Cloud Migration Methodology30Assess & PlanDesign& BuildPilot Commission• Assess Networks andSecurity architecture• Assess Applications,workloads anddependencies• Determine Migrationrequirements, rollbackplan and risks• Develop high levelnetwork architecture,migration strategy androllout plan• Develop network andsecurity design• Determine VM serverconfiguration design• Network• Storage• Backup• Replication• Document migrationschedule• Deploy and configurenetwork and securitydesign• Define Pilot objective• Document Pilot test plan• Migrate pilot servers• Configure servers as perconfiguration design• Perform user acceptancetesting (UAT)• Document pilot resultsWhat is the best way toconnect to the cloud andhow do we migrate myserver environment?What’s the best design tomeet my requirements andwhat is the migrationschedule timeline?How do we deliver on time,within budget, to ourorganisation?Will the design andmigration strategy meet mysuccess criteria?• Migrate servers as permigration schedule• Configure servers as perconfiguration design• Perform user acceptancetesting (UAT)• Optimise environment
