  1. 1. Building Private Clouds Easily at Real Scale Kuyper Hoffman Senior Systems Engineer April 2012
  2. 2. A Little About NimbulaLeadership●  Chris Pinkham, Co-founder, CEO ●  Former VP Engineering at; EC2 founder●  Willem van Biljon, Co-founder, VP Products ●  Led EC2 development team●  Vividh Siddha, VP, Engineering ●  Former VPE at IPInfusion●  Reza Malekzadeh, VP Marketing ●  Marketing Director at VMware from 1998 to 2009Board of Directors●  Diane Greene (co-founder and former CEO, VMware)●  Roelof Botha●  Ping LiFunding●  $20.75 total in 2 rounds © Nimbula, Inc.
  3. 3. Nimbula’s MissionCreate a cloud platform for rapid innovation by delivering infrastructure with the: ●  Highest developer agility ●  Lowest operational cost ●  Lowest risk Slide 3
  4. 4. An Enterprise Approach To IaaS Implementation Matters●  We deliver a fully functional cloud in under an hour ●  No PSO or SI required●  Enterprise ready today ●  All functionality works at scale ●  No single points of failure ●  Self-healing control plane●  Long-term vision and lots of great features, too JNimbula Director is freely available for use up to 40 cores – nosalesperson, no expensive HW required – 4 machines and aswitch Slide 4
  5. 5. Massive Elasticity●  Grow from 3 to 100 physical nodes in a couple of hours: plug in, power on, & walk away●  Grow beyond thousands in the same manner●  Deploy hundreds of VM instances in under 30 minutes with a single command Slide 5
  6. 6. Complete Resiliency●  Unplug any rack without impacting cloud availability●  Automated recovery of any degraded control plane services●  Automated relaunch of lost instances Slide 6
  7. 7. How do we do it●  A node is a node is a node●  Hierarchies ●  Identity •  Delegation •  Inheritance ●  sites(clusters(nodes))●  Isolation ●  Security lists •  Distributed firewall ●  Virtual Ethernet •  Traditional Layer 2 isolation Slide 7

  9. 9. Why Nimbula●  Team: experience at EC2 ●  We know management at scale ●  We understand next-gen app architecture and the infrastructure it requires●  Strength of core architecture ●  Future proof – the Nimbula implementation scales ●  The enterprise cloud •  Quality of service •  Deep tenant isolation – network, permission, performance •  Enterprise organizational structure mapped to cloud usability ●  Automation of everything for lowest opex •  Install •  Control plane resiliency and auto-healing •  Placement and resource control Slide 9
  10. 10. Why Nimbula●  Built from the ground up for simple cloud ●  Not a rework and complex layering of legacy IT tools●  Cloud friendly business model●  Complete and ready today! ●  Not a framework or blueprint ●  Not a DIY project●  We eat our own dogfood Slide 10
  11. 11. With Nimbula Your IT Can Have…Massive elasticity●  Deploy 1000+ instances in under 30 minutes●  Deploy 100 physical nodes in 2 hoursComplete resiliency●  Unplug any rack without impacting cloud availability – end users keep working with the cloud APIs●  Quick automated restart of all instances on the dead rackSimple setup and teardown of a very complex application – examples:●  Deploy scale-out analytics app in minutes using a simple launch plan and instantly start marshaling the cloud’s power for an analytic job●  Deploy an application with a very involved intra-instance network security policy ●  Without any cloud admin activity ●  No VLANs creation, or external firewall configuration Slide 11
  12. 12. With Nimbula Your IT Can Have…Worldwide deployment●  Shared identity across multiple sites in different GEOs●  Loss of entire site does not impact user’s ability to use the cloud●  Simple way to build DR-enabled apps across sites●  Single workflow, security model, and audit trail for public and private cloudCollaborative development●  Selective sharing across tenants in a self-service manner ●  Without involvement of cloud admin ●  With better checks and balances than are provided in traditional IT ACLsExtensibility●  Introduce PaaS, data services, network services native to your cloud Slide 12
  13. 13. Self-service Nimbula Vision: One CloudMultiple sites across Global, Self-service & Collaborativegeographies Enterprise A UsersPermissions and policiesbreak the boundaries:No seamsPrivate… public… hybrid…One Cloud Enterprise A Users Federation relationships Enterprise B Enterprise C Users Workloads Users Slide 13
  14. 14. Cloud Friendly Business Model●  Usage based per core annual subscription ●  Customers can deploy on infrastructure and pay based on workload growth and usage ●  Positive impact on Opex●  Pricing allows very competitive cost structure ●  $300 per year per core ●  Allows to build profitable cloud offeringper core $0.03 /hour vs. > $0.15 /hour (EC2) (vSphereper server* $2,400 /year vs. $9,178 /year + vCenter + vCloud Director) * Price assumes a dual CPU quad core server, includes maintenance and 24/7 support Slide 14
  15. 15. Nimbula Reference Customers Use Case Why Nimbula Benefits Private cloud for •  Simple to install and configure •  Increased developer application development •  Self-healing control plane productivity for 3rd parties and then •  Single SKU with all functionality •  Higher code quality hosting those apps •  Hybrid cloud for bursting to AWS •  Reduce deploy time of appsContract Software Developer •  Open APIs for integration to in-house to customers from months to tools minutes Private cloud for •  Zero-touch install •  Reduce QA time for first application development •  Ease of management suite migrated by 90% & running of production •  Self-service APIs for automation •  Developer sandboxes from Yandex (NASDAQ: YNDX) SaaS days down to minutes Private cloud for •  Self-healing control plane •  Elimination of low-value, application development, •  Zero-touch install highly redundant datacenter batch processing, and •  Horizontal scaling management tasks – server, analytics – starting with •  Performance of parallel deployment network configuration IT Solutions Provider 1300 cores •  EC2-like elasticity •  Projected speed up of 40% For US Government •  Multi-site federation for end to end project •  Security implementation Building clouds for their •  Scale •  Allows them to create EC2- customers •  Reliability like clouds without having to recreate the wheel Cloud SI Slide 15
