Is There a Right Way to Build a Cloud?
Prabhakar Gopalan

In the world of instant gratification, customers want IT now and they are going to public clouds to get it. The issue facing most enterprise IT shops is how to build out their own cloud infrastructure? Key questions include:

• Do I use old infrastructure or buy new infrastructure for my cloud?
• Do I design it for the lab or for production use? for IaaS or PaaS or both?
• Is it virtual machines only or a combination of virtual and physical?
• Does it incorporate public cloud resources or is it just a private cloud

The wrong answer to any of these questions will dramatically increase costs and time of deploying a cloud infrastructure. Come learn how CA Technologies has developed cloud solutions that can address these issues so you can quickly and cost effectively deploy a cloud.

  • 3. 2003 - 2008 2008 - 2009 Previous Steady State Recession & Credit Crisis IT Budget & Resources New Normal Business IT Demand BOTTOM LINE: IT Needs a Game Changer IT needs to drive revenue Growing Alignment Gap …but business demand is outpacing IT budgets and resources – as well as traditional means of delivery
  • 4. Challenges to the data center Infrastructure is too complex, errors cause downtime IT is inefficient, business response is too slow Not enough time or resources for strategic initiatives
  • 5. the virtualization promise Reductions in hardware costs, floor space, power & cooling… but still lots of work!  1 admin for 30-50 physical machines vs. 1 admin for 100s of VMs  U.S .Veterans Admin. reduced server space in hospitals by 50%  Every change requires massive amounts of configuration BOTTOM LINE: IT still Needs a Game Changer
  • 6. Gain organizational control to improve availability and reduce risk Accelerate strategic initiatives to drive competitive business advantage Improve IT efficiency to accelerate business response and reduce costs what is needed?
  • 7. the path to private clouds Resolve problems that stall cloud deployment – Difficult to respond to changing business demands – Inconsistent configurations cause outages and introduce business risk – Multiple request portals with inconsistent processes – Need to standardize and track configuration information Standardize Services Automate Everything “… Internal clouds will be impossible without a strong service management and automation foundation” “…Most enterprises are not yet prepared to make the leap to internal clouds.” Forrester Consulting: “Virtualization Management and Trends” - Jan 2010
