  • This chart is an attempt to summarize the features of the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise offering. The image on the left is a screen capture of a portion of the offering web portal and highlights a “View demo” function. The “View demo” graphic is a link to a demo pop-up. The site and additional offering information can be found using the links at the bottom left. The list on the right summarizes the elements of the offering: There are nine 32- and 64-bit configuration options that allow you to pick the virtual machine (VM) instance sizes that best fit your needs. These can be configured with either a Linux operating system (Redhat or Novell SUSE) or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or 2008. There are dozens of preconfigured and tested software images that you can use as the basis for building and saving customized private images to suit your needs. Private images can be shared by users within an account. With the persistent storage option, you can order extra blocks of persistent storage to use with a virtual machine instance for longer term storage of content. Small (256 gigabyte [GB]), medium (512 GB) and large (2048 GB) blocks are available. The offering provides a virtual private network option that isolates your instances on a private virtual LAN (VLAN). In addition, servers can be configured with up to four IP addresses, which enables you to build more robust systems but implement fallback strategies while allowing you to segment your system into layers (security zones) with restricted network access.(VPN: Virtual private network; VLAN: Virtual local area network) IBM standard and add-on support services consist of: Standard services: Technical support for all services—available through the web portal and by checking the online Cloud Service forum pages after login Around-the-clock monitoring and management of the IBM cloud infrastructure, including: Security activities for the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise infrastructure to govern access to and use of our services Scheduled maintenance for the IBM SmartCloud delivery centers and base infrastructure to maintain our services Fee-based add-on services: Remote on-boarding support to help account managers and end users learn how to navigate and use the self-service web portal Premium support: around-the-clock telephone support with a web-based service request ticketing system Advanced Premium support: Advanced Premium Support extends Premium Support with customer severity-level driven response times and a service level agreement with credits if response times aren't met. Add-on operating system assistance on top of premium support for Linux as well as Microsoft Windows Server . From a payment perspective, all of the standard features are available on a pay-as-you-go model. Virtual servers, selected software images, persistent storage and static IP addresses are charged for by the hour. Persistent storage charges include charges for storage blocks as well as for storing private images. Virtual private network options are charged for per month. Use of certain software images require a prepaid license. Operating system charges are included in the virtual server per hour charge. IBM provides network bandwidth for inbound and outbound data transfers between the IBM SmartCloud delivery centers and the Internet for you to access and use the services. IBM tracks and measures the amount of data transferred. Data transfer is charged for on a GB-transferred basis. Reserved capacity packages consist of pools of resources from which customers can provision as required. They carry a monthly charge but also offer preferred (discounted) rates on the virtual servers provisioned. Premium support is charged for as a 5 percent uplift on other service charges, charged for monthly, excluding pay-as-you-go software charges. Monthly minimum charge is US$75 in the US (price current as of March 28 2011). Advanced Premium support is charged for as a 10 percent uplift on other service charges, charged for monthly, excluding pay-as-you-go software charges. Monthly minimum charge is US$1,000 (price current as of March 28 2011). Add-on operating support is charged for as a fixed per hour uplift on instance hourly charges. The uplift varies by operating system and instance size.
  • OK, 3 common and critical problems found in the Enterprise today… ODP – There is endless/need universal/pain when it comes to ODP. Goal is Tapeless. Out of region, (time zone, power grid, weather pattern) - NASA Need for Tiered Storage – Most ALL Enterprises have Tiered. Maximizes cost and performance. Selling here enables tremendous scale across myriad of BU’s and Use Cases for rapid adoption. That’s how Netapp grew, that’s how 3Par Grew, that’s how we won GE DCC – THIS is where we BRANCH away from IT-Only Operational & Financial Value and into real Business Value By enabling the sharing/of and aggregation/of data, we enable growth and flexibility of otherwise static/degrading assets…Thanks to our Global SDN this is unique to Nirvanix… It’s how we won Cisco AND why we won NBC/Universal who we are going to talk to you about next…unless there are questions…
  • We see storage consumers adopting the object storage capability in 6 basic sales scenarios as it relates to SC-E, Dev/Test Tech Refresh New Workload / Service Business Transformation ISVs Pure storage/2 nd copy/DR – pure storage requirement. The usage of object storage will depend on a few use cases associated with the above sales scenarios: Dev & Test storage for staged testing (1) A production workload with requirement to offload and/or maintain copies of certain primary tier data on lower cost storage via workflows. Tech refresh and ISVs will be linked to this bucket. (2, 4 & 5) New workload requiring the lowest cost storage to support or evaluate (3) Maintain a DR copy of data in the cloud (6) 2) Technology Refresh We see model 2 leading to reasonable growth and larger initial start size as application/workload data will have to be migrated off equipment prior to end of maintenance, EOL or lease expiration etc. However, migration services would be critical for this scenario and w/o non-disruptive capabilities a challenge for quicker adoption. For large workloads > 50TB we need to have a mechanism or service for backing up and restoring data into the cloud. 3) New Workload/Service Traction on average will be reasonable with smaller starting increments, but the data migrated will be slow as service’s gets defined, developed, marketed, enabled and sold. Expectation is a faster pickup in data stored as service gets adopted (month 4+). 4) Business Transformation In the case of model 4, we would expect a larger initial size and quick growth rate as we're talking transforming an existing business model, which would entail migration of data and function. However, migration services would be critical for this scenario and w/o non-disruptive capabilities a challenge for quicker adoption. 5) ISVs This one will be tricky to model as the growth will depend on workload stacking, however as seen with Amazon this is an area that their ecosystem is exploiting. 6) Pure storage/fixed content store This is a primary use case. Adoption will be reasonable depending on geo and compliance requirements. Need to ensure a simplified user interface is in place to drive up adoption. Also, movement of bulk copies of data is essential.
