  • It’s worth noting that our approach to management is enhanced by being purpose-built for the cloud era. Unlike the past, where IT was managed through silos, and thus complicating manageability, the new era is about abstraction, pooling, and dynamic infrastructure. VMware’s management solutions were designed with this in mind, to support the maximum level of automation.

Cloud Can Deliver High Application Performance • 1K+ IOPS/VM for data-intensive appsBusiness Criticality • Low latency direct connections • Optimized hypervisor and storage layers Performance Requirement Ensure the cloud provider can meet your specific performance requirements Table modified from Equinix
    8. 8. High Availability Systems in the Cloud Traditional IT Stack Virtualized Applications Coupling applications to Applications are abstracted from infrastructure creates silos and infrastructure, increasing single points of failure hardware redundancy App App App App App Hypervisor Limited application portability and Flexible and extensible systems scaling potential with no single point of failure
    9. 9. Securely Deliver Scalable IT Resources with VirtualPrivate Cloud• “Virtual private” hybrid cloud model allows you to use secure connections and firewalls to securely scale your environment• Fully compatible with your internal environment• Use hybrid cloud for: distributed workloads, private to public workload management, and cloud bursting
    10. 10. Top 5 Considerations for Adopting Hybrid Cloud1. Connection – What kind of connection and performance do you need? How many users will you have?2. Software compatibility – Do you need single pane of glass management? What systems are you using internally?3. Workloads – What kind of workloads do you want to run in a hybrid cloud? Do those workloads need monitoring, high SLAs, etc.?4. Identity management – Will you use SAML integration or local accounts?5. Security – What kind of security and compliance do you require? Will you be auditing datacenters and employees? Is your data transit secure?

    12. 12. Business Agility Case Study: F1000 Manufacturer Challenge • “Shadow IT” apps leading to compliance and data security concerns • Long IT support cycles to spin up new environments hampered business agility Solution • Extend the network and AD environment to an Enterprise Cloud Provider • Consolidate and standardize processes while retaining flexibility Impact • Improved IT and business agility: Deployment cycles reduced from weeks to days while maintaining visibility, compliance and security“With a designated enterprise cloud partner we are realizing our vision ofIT as a service.” - Director, IT IaaS Solutions Delivery
    13. 13. Back Office Case Study: Challenge • Frequent outages and data loss; Managing infrastructure distracted from innovation and serving customers Solution • Run back office applications securely from the enterprise cloud • 800+ Exchange mailboxes and 1MM+ forwarding addresses • Voice over IP • Financial apps: custom ERP, custom billing • File serving and file sharing Impact • Increased business agility • Reduced operational complexity and costs“Our entire business depends on the [cloud]. It pretty much runs everythingfor us, so that we don’t have to.” - Andy Evans, Founder and CTO, Obeo
