  • Cloud is meeting business needs in a variety of ways. Left top: For customers needing to quickly scale capacity up or down to meet seasonal, cyclical or growth needs, cloud is the answer. Accessing cloud provides capacity without the cost and time of provisioning servers and storage. Right top: The mobile workforce and bring your own device (BYOD) is growing in popularity. More than ever the workforce is wanting options to work from anywhere, anytime and on any device. Cloud enables this flexibility. Left Bottom: Years of data center growth and VM sprawl has left organizations with complex, overgrown and chronically underutilized computing platforms. These depreciate quickly, take up valuable data center space, consume large amounts of power/ cooling, and cause management headaches. Cloud improves the delivery of workloads and decreases infrastructure management costs. Right Bottom: A primary goal for today’s organization is business agility/scalability while maintaining governance and decreasing risk. Centralization and automation improves IT responsiveness for workload delivery and helps to reduce infrastructure management costs.
  • Cover the Enterprise grade/Enterprise experienceTalk about the use case centricity of the solutionTalk about the certified end-to-endSo let’s look a little closer at the DESIGN Principals for the upcoming Dell and Red Enterprise Cloud solution – this NEW joint solution will be released in April. In designing this solution we are focusing on the following:Enterprise grade/Enterprise experience: Enterprise customers require solutions that are robust, proven, secure, and fully supported. Enterprise customers expect software that is packaged, tested and ready to deploy “out of the box”. They also REQUIRE, expect and will pay for support and maintenance. The Dell and Red Hat solution deliver on these enterprise requirements for OpenStack powered cloud – versus off the shelf OpenStack code which is a complex collection of cod and API components with many moving parts Enterprise Use Cases: Our target buyer for this solutions are those business buyers in the enterprise whose world revolves around ‘’apps”, customer experience and deliveryCloud is a new paradigm and customers may not have fully explored how to get started or which business challenge is the “right fit” for a cloud solution. Based on our joint experiences with OpenStack and best practices drawn form early adopters of OpenStack, Dell and Red Hat are planning to develop a series of reference configurations based on some common use cases. This work is underway now and we are exploring OpenStack powered configurations for:software-defined storageagile software build environmentsapplication scale testing environmentscloud scale applications including things apps like: mobile apps, collaboration apps, analytics appsThese configs will be prescriptive and use-case oriented, with some workload characterization. They will set the stage for you to have business conversations with the customer around their needs and real application deployments as opposed to leading with a yet another data center infrastructure conversation. Address the gaps: Other OpenStack offerings in market today are not addressing the key needs of the enterprise cloud buyer – as we talked about in the previous slide, the Dell and Red Hat enterprise cloud solution will directly address enterprise needs for high availability, security, upgrades, and SUPPORT! Certified end-to-end: These solutions will leverage and integrate with Red Hat’s world class solution/product certification processes, training, skills certifications, and open source code distribution expertise. We are currently expanding the number and scope of Dell services and support personnel who are Red Hat Certified. Net net – these solutions will be certified at the techncial level, will be supported by Red Hat certified specialists in Dell and will be deployed by Red Hat certified engineers from Dell.
  • Design choices been made based on customer needs around flexibility, independence from vendor lockin and ease of useCover all the four design elements. Before we deep dive let us talk about certain design choices we have made to make ASM a future ready architecture.OpenOpen and extensible with an architecture that integrates with the IT of today & tomorrow; this means being able to plug a new solution into your existing architecture, as well as giving you flexibility in the future to adopt new technical innovations without worrying about your existing investments. Heterogeneous with investment protection, supporting legacy infrastructure from multiple vendors. While we believe in our excellent products and solutions, we also understand that you have existing investments in other vendor technologies, and we know how important it is to continue maximizing that investment. Easy to UseIntuitive user interface: easy to set-up and easy to keep using with unified management & easy integration with 3rd party tools; technology and tools are only valuable if users can easily understand and unlock their potential. It’s also important to leverage and integrate with existing 3rd party tools.Modular and flexible, pre-sized & prebuilt, to speed initial set-up & ensure reliable performance. Modularity allows organizations to scale quickly with predictable performance, ensuring that IT can quickly deliver services in support of evolving business requirements.AutomatedAutomated with templates built on best practices to ensure accurate & consistent results with maximum speed. Automation is sometimes scary to administrators used to doing it their own way, but oftentimes, the creation of the templates that feed automation force needed conversations around best practices, fostering collaboration and ensuring consistency across the organization beyond the process of creating the templates themselves. And with Active system manager you can automate across multiple physical as well as virtual layersScalable with a capability to easily re-allocate resources; automation allows for simple and fast scaling of the infrastructure, but also ensures that unused resources are returned back to the pool so that other IT services can be scaled without unnecessarily purchasing new equipment.ComprehensiveActive System Manager is a comprehensive unified management platform that provides a single view of your IT infrastructure and workloads. It provides broad third party hardware support to aggregate customers’ existing heterogeneous infrastructure investments. This speeds up workload delivery and streamlines infrastructure management, enabling IT organizations to accelerate service delivery and time to value for customers.Infrastructure lifecycle management. Simplify IT management throughout the solution lifecycle with; Fast discovery, inventory and initial configuration of assets, streamlined provisioning and maintenance  
  • Changed this label … Was “How to Innovate”
  • Dell is the only partner to have this currently Not finalized providing a sneak peekJoint solution will be founded in a core reference architecture Guidance on Server, Storage and networking configDell is THE ONLY partner currently who can offer a joint OpenStack solution with Red Hat. While we do NOT have exclusivity here, we DO HAVE a SIGNIFICANT first mover advantage … So what will the solution like technically – Bear in mind the solution is still being engineered and tested so some of the fine details are a work in progress – here is a high level view of the offering.. We are providing you with this “sneak peek” now so you can prepare to engage your customers … The joint solution will be founded in a core reference architecture which will serve as basis on which Dell and Red Hat Services will be able to deliver highly customizable, highly scalable openstack solutions for the enterprise. Core components in the architecture will include:Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform (OSP) version 4Red Hat OSP delivers BOTH the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system and OpenStack software in a single and FULLY supported software distributionMuch like how Red Hat distributes Linux, Red Hat OSP is a packaged, tested, hardened, and supported software packageRed Hat takes care of all the compatibility testing, open source code back porting, and code patches and updates and delivers reliable enterprise software OpenStack assessment, consulting and implementation services, supporting technologies, and deployment information. Physical infrastructure descriptions and recommended characterizations for:Server hardware configurations and BOM’s Controller nodesCompute nodesStorage nodesNetwork configuration and topology and BOM’sToR switch configurations Multi-rack network topology and configurationWe mentioned in the previous slide we will be providing reference configs to serve as ‘’on-ramps’’ to this solution stack.
