Virtualization/Cloud Computing Adoption + Costs Accelerating sts in co Mgt/adm While server consolidation and Cloud Services adoption accelerate…so do the management and admin costs
AppZero Perspective: • High Software Costs Its • Long provisioning About times • Costly Management/ The Lifecycle • How to leverage App! Cloud?
Application virtualization is an umbrella term that describes software technologies that improve portability, manageability and compatibility of applications by encapsulating them from the underlying operating system on which they are executed. A fully virtualized application is not installed in the traditional sense, although it is still executed as if it is. The application is fooled at runtime into believing that it is directly interfacing with the original operating system and all the resources managed by it, when in reality it is not. In this context, the term "virtualization" refers to the artifact being encapsulated (application), which is quite different to its meaning in hardware virtualization, where it refers to the artifact being abstracted (physical hardware).

How do I create a VAA? Virtualize to VAA Output Source VAA VAA Physical or VAA Virtual AppZero VAA Creator machine Two approaches to creating a VAA VAA based on snapshot capture and template approach: 1. Install app VAA VAA 2. Scoop & move app VAA Data Center

Case Study: Fortune 100 Financial Services Co Business Challenge: Solution: • 50% of Servers utilized under 10% - • Move to a “stateless” Private Cloud across both production and non- computing model with production ( e.g. dev/test ) scenarios • Gold OS Images ( Citrix PVS ) • Provisioning times for business • Gold AppImages ( AppZero VAA ) requests for new infrastructure average • Workload Manager ( 3rd Party ) 2-4 weeks • Federate Private Cloud with Service • Early adoption of Server Virtualization Provider “semi private” Cloud created dramatic improvements in both utilization and Provisioning, but created problems too: • Hasn’t gone far enough on either Benefits: dimension • Newer infrastructure w/VAA are 80% cheaper to maintain • New problems with VM Sprawl • Less to maintain due to VAA • SW lifecycle issues not reuse addressed/affected ( e.g. Windows Server:admin ratios not • Fewer Images reduce sprawl improved ) • VAA mobility across Hybrid Cloud accommodates unforeseen bursts16
