  • Cloud is no longer a “buzz” word. According to a recent poll by IDC, companies haven’t moved to cloud yet, but most have plans to do so for at least a part of their environment. The primary use case customers are evaluating cloud is for production application hosting. Companies need to understand the different cloud technologies and decide how to best leverages the advantages. The Drivers and inhibitors Primary drivers are focused on pay-as-go; access to the latest functionality; speed of deployment Primary inhibitors involve security (usually number one); regulatory factors, particularly by industry; and performance factors (e.g. scalability, reliability, etc.)
  • SunGard’s focus: Hosted Private cloud provided via our fully managed virtual infrastructure platform Hosted Enterprise shared cloud – our cloud computing offering.
  • Business Strategy: Business problem and desired end result Identify the Business problem Business requirements Time/Budget/Resources Efficiency Cost savings – myth or reality? Financial change Scalability Maximize Resources Maximize Revenue New markets Speed to market Security/ Information Assurance Loss of control Sensitive data Multi-tenant Standards/Certification/Compliance Management Change Control - ITIL Standards , Process & Procedure Availability - Internal & External Customer. Impact of downtime, 24 x 7 Support Performance - How does it perform overall? Where are the bottlenecks? Can I see the issues before they happen? Scalability – SLAs, account for expansion/contraction, application sizing Customer Satisfaction End User – Internal and External Customer Satisfaction Meet User Demands Migration/Integration Leverage investments in existing technology Mix of requirements/disparate environments Vendor lock-in How do you Execute?

  • 1. Cloud Computing Considerations Carl Meadows Director of Cloud Product Management SunGard Availability Services www.sungardas.com/cloud
  • 2. Market Dynamics – Adoption & Use Cases
    • Majority (71%) of companies are or will be operational with cloud over the next 18 months
    Most common use case for cloud is production application hosting *IDG Research & SunGard survey, 2010
  • 3. Business needs are driving changes in IT delivery Redundancy Automation Increase IT operational efficiency Increase availability and performance Improve utilization across all apps Reduce time to provision, move, change Reduce capital costs for IT projects Defer Data Center Expansion Reduce CapEx – shift to OpEx Increase time spent on strategic projects Deliver higher application SLA’s Service-based Key IT Metrics Key IT Drivers 4 3 6 5
    • Macro shift is the industrialization of IT -> consumed as a service
    • Technical move towards virtualization due to under-utilization of IT infrastructure
    • Companies want to focus on building core business rather than IT management

  • 4. Cloud Computing Working Definition And Components
    • “ IT as a service” abstraction from the physical
    • Shared and virtualized computing, storage and networking resources
    • Geographically distributed
    • Consumed as a service, priced upon usage
    • Dynamic scale and resource allocation
    • Application and workload portability
    • Applicable for Production Test/Dev and Recovery workloads
  • 5. Key Requirements for Enterprise Cloud Enterprise-grade Services and Management Reduced time to provision systems and applications Highly Scalable and Resilient with BC/DR Simplified Pricing and Consumption Model Highly Secure and Compliant Infrastructure Ease of Integration with Existing IT Infrastructure
  • 6. Gaps in the Current Cloud Market Enterprise-grade Services and Management Highly Scalable and Resilient with BC/DR Simplified Pricing and Consumption Model Highly Secure and Compliant Infrastructure Ease of Integration with Existing IT Infrastructure Key Requirements for Enterprise Cloud Reduced time to provision systems and applications
  • 7. Cloud Service Models
    • Software as a Service (SaaS)
    • applications running on a cloud infrastructure, accessible from a web browser or other thin client
    • consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure
    • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
    • consumer-created applications deployed to the cloud infrastructure
    • consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure but does have control over the deployed applications
    • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    • consumer provisions processing, storage, networks, & other fundamental computing resources
    • consumer does not manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure but has control over operating systems, storage, deployed applications, & possibly limited control of select networking components (e.g. host firewalls)
    SaaS SalesForce.com, Egencia, ADT PaaS Google App Engine, Microsoft Azure IaaS Amazon EC2, Rackspace Cloud
  • 8. Spectrum of IaaS Cloud Solutions Source: The 451 Group, SunGard customer research What it is For use within a single enterprise For use by a group of collaborating enterprises, including supply or demand chains For use by a single enterprise but via a service provider For use by a group of collaborating enterprises, but via a service providers Publicly accessible, developer oriented shared cloud infrastructure Who provides DIY (by an enterprise) DIY (by an enterprise) Service Providers e.g. SunGard, Savvis, Rackspace Service Providers e.g. SunGard, Terremark, Savvis Commodity clouds e.g. Amazon, Rackspace Closed Private Cloud Community Private Cloud Hosted Private Cloud Hosted Enterprise Multi-tenant cloud Commodity Public Cloud
  • 9. Common Cloud Entry Points
