  • {DESCRIPTION} This slide contains the topics that are covered by the narration written in the transcription of this slide. {TRANSCRIPT} Cloud is a model for enabling on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources than can be acquired quickly and easily. In other words it is taking all of your resources such as Systems, network, application and storage and pooling them together to function as a single massively scalable resource, where services are accessible via the web. There are different types of clouds. Private cloud is where all the resources are owned, managed and controlled by the enterprise. It is a cloud behind the firewall. Public cloud is the other end of the spectrum. I think we are all familiar with public cloud options like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), or Google Apps. This is a cloud where anyone who pays can have access to those resources. Finally, you can merge options between public and private and create what has been coined a “hybrid cloud”. A hybrid cloud solution is some mix of private and public integrated with your traditional IT to deliver the cloud solution to the end user . IMB believes that enterprises will adopt cloud models to improve employee productivity, deploy new products and services faster and reduce operating costs, because what cloud enables is self-service through automation, so it requires less support to get services needed. Its sourcing options, you have choices and flexibility in terms of how you deploy and consume services. Economies-of-scale through more standard environment. Ubiquitous access to applications which leads to greater productivity and the ability to pay just for what is used.
  • {DESCRIPTION} This slide contains the topics that are covered by the narration written in the transcription of this slide. {TRANSCRIPT} Economic benefits can be achieved at each steps on this journey to cloud. There’s more information in the speaker notes on this slide, but I’m just going to hit the high points here. Let’s start with Consolidate and Virtualize. Typical server in data center is running one application and has utilization rate of 5-25%. As systems are consolidated and virtualized in a cloud environment the number of servers required can drop significantly and utilization increases. Also consider that it means a drop in power and cooling and space utilization. Now, there is cost of virtualization software and service management software, and you do need these in order to provide visibility, control and automation for the virtualized systems. However these costs are partially offset by the reduction in number of operations systems licensed due to consolidation. Based on our own customer studies, we’ve seen a h ardware payback of 30%-70%. Automate and Standardize: Automated provisioning provides the ability to provision systems quickly and without manual intervention. Scripts are created that are then used by automated tools to consistently provision systems without potential human error. The key savings here, is in the amount of time saved for deploying new systems. The use of automated provisioning tools can reduce time required to provision images from weeks or days to minutes. We’ve seen the p rovisioning payback: 48-90%. There’s another here and that’s the standard images. As virtualization increases, the variety of software images that need to be managed can quickly proliferate and this can lead to higher costs. When identified a workload that can be standardized and cloned, and then the maintenance needed for unique images is eliminated. This can significantly reduce maintenance on patches, testing and upgrades. In a nutshell, the higher the clone factor, the lower the labor costs associated with deploying and maintaining virtual software virtual images. So, Optimize/Cloud ready – you are virtualized, automated and standardized. How else does this help you? Overall productivity can be further enhanced. Not only can you deploy resource quickly, but people can access them more quickly. With automated tools, there’s a self-service portal that’s used to choose the environment from a service catalogue. This allows also for determining how long that resource is needed, and then enables automated work flows. The environments are stood up in minutes as we said. Now, if we think about this across enterprise and how this accelerates the completion of work and the dramatic impact it can have on the agility of an IT organization, the effect is significant. We have seen p roductivity payback to be up to 90%. Overall Systems administration and efficiency. As a cloud environment is implemented, hardware is consolidated and systems are virtualized to drive savings. There are less physical servers to manage but the number of virtual servers increases and virtual systems are more complex to administer. This is one of the reasons that a strong service management system is so critical to an efficient and effective cloud environment, without it there is the possibility that cost actually can increase. The key savings metric for system administration payback is the efficiencies that can be gained by effectively managing the virtualized aspect of the cloud environment. With proper service management tools for a highly virtualized environment, the administration savings can range 36% to 45%.
  • System x High Volume systems are ideal for virtualization, and IBM has a long leadership history that clients leverage every day to meet their IT objectives. From virtualization on mainframe systems in the 60’s, to a number of firsts with VMware, IBM uniquely understands what it takes to provide best in class virtualized infrastructure. IBM sells more High Volume servers for virtualization than any other IBM system! IBM continues to lead the IT transition from consolidation to virtualization and into the next generation of cloud computing, providing optimized reliable systems and partnering to create best-in-class solutions that help clients evolve their data centers into the future.

Raw performance is a category that IBM has won for the past three years – and last year, the margin was even wider.” Gabriel Consulting Group, 2010 GCG x86 Server Vendor Preference “ IBM built its rack servers to be rock-solid reliable. The servers deliver high availability with redundant, hot-swap power supplies as well as cooling fans. They feature IBM Predictive Failure Analysis and Light Path Diagnostics. Together, these features significantly reduce server downtime and in some cases, avoid failures altogether. The high reliability offered by System x servers means that businesses stay ahead of the competition while benefitting from enhanced investment protection and extended server lifespan.” John Spooner, Technology Business Research “ Customers see IBM’s System x brand as offering the best availability and reliability feature set.” Gabriel Consulting Group, 2010 GCG x86 Server Vendor Preference
