Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems Futures Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems Futures Presentation Transcript

  • CIandIS The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems Top Line Research Findings Pim Bilderbeek Martin Hingley The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • Agenda • • • • • • • CIandIS Market Developments System Types EMEA Vendors Current Positioning Expert Interview Analysis EMEA CI and IS Forecast Futures The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • Market Developments • • • • • • • CIandIS Managing servers, storage and networking is difficult Many are mainly managing the estate rather than addressing new business applications Technical skills are difficult and expensive to recruit and retain System vendors are building out their portfolios through acquisition and proposing new, more integrated solutions User benefits include: – ‘one throat to choke’, faster system set up and application deployment time, reduced staffing costs Potential vendor benefits include: – Better life cycle management, bigger deals, higher value relationship, a tie-in with leading ISV applications An acceleration in product and strategy announcements from all suppliers The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • System Types – The 5 layer Model CIandIS Stacks with increasing degrees of integration and workload specificity including: 3. Integrated System 2. Managed Platform 1. Converged Infrastructure Server, Storage Array, Networking Degree of integration 5. Software Appliance Workload specificity 4. WorkloadOptimised System 1. Converged Infrastructure – chosen elements and infrastructure software for data center building 2.Managed Platforms – adding ‘secret sauce’ system management to orchestrate and increase agility 3.Integrated Systems – single SKUs with a choice of workloads 4.Workload-Optimised Systems – tuned for a specific application atop the ‘integrated system’ stack 5.Software Appliances –a specific software suite is fitted into an appliance, often with a restricted infrastructure The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • IBM PureSystems 4. WorkloadOracle Exa… Optimised Dell Active System System Nutanix VCP VCE vBlock SimpliVity Omnicube 3. Integrated Fujitsu DI Blocks System Huawei FusionCube NetApp FlexPod Hitachi UCP 2. Managed Platform Cisco UCS HP CI 1. Converged Infrastructure CIandIS SAP HANA Teradata SAS Greenplum 5. Software Appliance Workload specificity Typical Vendor Offerings in EMEA Some example offerings and approaches: 1.Converged Infrastructure – HP CI and Cisco UCS are reference architectures 2.Managed Platforms – ‘secret sauce’ system management includes Dell ASM and IBM FSM 3.Integrated Systems – VCE vBlock and Fujitsu BI Block have set prices 4.Workload-Optimised Systems – Oracle Exadata, IBM PureData include the application 5.Software Appliances – SAP HANA and Greenplum are fitted to certified platforms Server, Storage Array, Networking Degree of integration Please note – most players are active in a number of layers The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • Current Positioning CIandIS 1.HP is a strong player, addressing mainly lower layers and includes Itanium 70% 60% 50% Objective Score 2.IBM is has a focus on higher levels and includes Power HP EMC/ IBM VMware NetApp 40% 3.EMC/VMware has strength through partnering with Cisco for vBlock; EMC is leader in enterprise storage and VMware in virtualisation Cisco Dell 30% Oracle Huawei Teradata Fujitsu 20% 4.Cisco has a fabric design with UCS, partners with EMC and VMware for vBlock and NetApp and VMware for FlexPod Hitachi Bull Others 10% 0% 20% Unisys 25% 30% 35% CIandIS Score 40% 45% 50% 55% Dell is well positioned to move towards the top right, has strong data centre revenues and a new system in 2013 Huawei is investing in data centre growth - worth watching The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • Expert Interview Analysis - How Users Rate the Advantages of Integrated Systems CIandIS Customers make many different choices - one size doesn’t fit all Their biggest challenge is making their businesses more agile They see their data centre strategies as adaptive - not transformational Existing supplier relationships are most important for choosing solutions Lower total cost of ownership is the main advantage Few have experienced any downside Lack of innovation and architecture are reasons for some not to adopt Users advise vendors - test the system well before you sell them to us! The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • EMEA CI and IS Forecast – Revenue ($US Billion) and Revenue Growth – 2012-2018 CIandIS Set to more than double in size to $5.5 Billion in 2018 – a 13% CAGR CI is currently the largest subsegment, but will be surpassed in size by Managed Platforms in 2018 WE currently accounts for 75% of spending, but will fall to 54% as customers in MEA fix their skills shortages Finance and Manufacturing are the largest vertical markets, Education and Retail/Wholesale will have the strongest growth Enterprise is currently the largest buyer but SPs will increase their share to 38% by 2018 – Hosting is the largest Service Provider subsector, ISV the fastest growing The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
  • Futures • • • • • • • • CIandIS Vendors will continue to built out and up, choosing chassis and blade systems with increasingly sophisticated autonomic management Microservers will eventually be added to system types Unix and mainframe ranges may be adjusted to join integrated system portfolios Users will be slow to adopt if they have heavily siloed IT administration Integrated systems approach covering whole data centres in containers will add to the business Leading ISVs will choose between single hardware appliances (HANA) and taking part in each vendors’ architecture Integrated systems favour scale-up, converged infrastructure – scale out applications Integrated system approaches will be extended beyond the data centre to cover branch and small office computing The Future of Converged Infrastructure and Integrated Systems
