  • By offering the attributes of public cloud (economics, scale, pace of innovation) with some of the privacy and control features associated with private cloud, VPCs are effectively addressing many of the objections that have held customers back from the cloud model.

    According to IDC, an important factor driving growth in public IT cloud services spending is the expanding variety of cloud deployment options.
    As these platforms mature, cloud services adoption will increase dramatically.
    Virtual private cloud (VPC) offerings are shifting momentum from dedicated private cloud offerings toward public (shared/multi-tenant) cloud offerings.
  • For all of the reasons mentioned in the intro slides, people want flexibility in their solutions, whether online or offline.
  • As SharePoint extends into broad adoption and business solutions such as extranets securing the SharePoint content is key.
  • As SharePoint extends into broad adoption and business solutions such as extranets securing the SharePoint content is key.
  • As SharePoint extends into broad adoption and business solutions such as extranets securing the SharePoint content is key.
  • Discuss early days of MMS, and re-learning many of these same issues.
  • As SharePoint extends into broad adoption and business solutions such as extranets securing the SharePoint content is key.
  • Customer receives a completed application and functionality with agreed upon SLAs, system uptime, and quality of service (performance).
    The downside is that there is minimal ability to customize, and new features/updates/changes are driven by market demand or the capabilities of the provider.

    How do Cloud services differ from traditional managed services? The primary difference is that you say goodbye to the major platform upgrades every 3 or 4 years, and move toward more of an iterative update.
    As cloud-based service providers, their revenue model changes dramatically as customers move from a high-cost, project-based model to a recurring revenue model.
  • An environment that provides great application-level control over the SharePoint environment, including access to cloud storage and other services. However, this greater level of application control shifts support/ownership of the application (SharePoint) to the customer.
  • Delivered as virtual environments and cloud storage. Customer is responsible for the entire platform and applications. Generally used by ISVs, SIs, and customers with very complex, unique development requirements.
  • As SharePoint extends into broad adoption and business solutions such as extranets securing the SharePoint content is key.
  • These factors will help you decided how much your own organization can support, as well as help you determine the suitability of vendors
  • Point out that in this example, cloud = Office365

    7. 7. Worldwide spending on public IT cloud services will grow from $47.4 billion in 2013 to more than $107 billion in 2017 http://www.eweek.com/small-business/public-it-cloud-services- spending-to-reach-108-billion-by-2017-idc.html #T16CloudESPC
    8. 8. Over the next several years, the primary driver for cloud adoption will shift from economics to innovation as leading-edge companies invest in cloud services as the foundation for new competitive offerings. Frank Gens, Senior Vice President and Chief Analyst at IDC #T16CloudESPC
    9. 9. • By 2017, public IT cloud services will drive 17% of IT product spending and nearly half of all growth across five technology categories: • Applications • System infrastructure software • Platform as a service (PaaS) • Servers • Basic storage • Software as a service (SaaS) will remain the largest public IT cloud services category throughout the forecast, capturing 59.7% of revenues in 2017. • The fastest growing categories will be PaaS and IaaS, with CAGRs of 29.7% and 27.2%, respectively. http://www.eweek.com/small-business/public-it-cloud-services-spending-to-reach-108-billion-by-2017-idc.html #T16CloudESPC
    10. 10. The NIST-SP 500-291, NIST Cloud Computing Standards roadmap publication from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines cloud computing: • Enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources • Rapidly provisioned • Minimal management effort or service provider interaction #T16CloudESPC
    11. 11. • As SharePoint continues to expand its footprint, companies are demanding flexible architectures to help them better meet internal and external collaboration needs • Reducing costs • Reducing headcount • Doing more with less • Focusing less on traditional IT activities and more on activities that will help drive the business forward #T16CloudESPC

    37. 37. Advantages • A professionally managed data center with 24x7 support and advanced network security and intrusion detection. • Separation of identity and content for externally-facing workloads vs. on- premise internal-facing environments. • Rapid provisioning with little or no upfront costs for hardware and software. • On-demand scale-out to meet variable capacity demands. #T16CloudESPC

    58. 58. What cloud services should I pursue? • Take a look at the tools and systems you use today, and figure out which ones could save time and money by moving to the cloud. • Hosted Exchange is a relatively easy platform to move to the cloud -- the platform is mature, and there are ample vendors offering strong SLAs. • Focus first on moving to mature solutions (minimize risk of moving), then investigate new capabilities not already in house (minimize cost of trying new solutions) #T16CloudESPC
    59. 59. Should I consider cloud-only or a combination of cloud and on-premises solutions? • Rarely can companies go entirely into the cloud, as not every platform is cloud-ready, and many orgs have extensive customizations in on-prem. • Hybrid environments will be around for some time, and the move for many companies will be incremental. #T16CloudESPC
    60. 60. What kind of cloud partners should I choose? • Same as any other vendor selection process, look carefully at what they offer, who they support, and how long they’ve been in business. • Depending on what you plan to move into the cloud, look for partners with the strongest Service Level Agreements (SLAs). • Also look for specialization. For example, work with a hosted PPM provider with a strong history in project management, not just a hosting service running an instance of Project Server. #T16CloudESPC
    61. 61. How do cloud services differ from traditional managed services? • The primary difference is that you say goodbye to the major platform upgrades every 3 or 4 years, and move toward more of an iterative update. • As cloud-based service providers, their revenue model changes dramatically as customers move from a high-cost, project-based model to a recurring revenue model. #T16CloudESPC
    62. 62. Best Practices • Make governance a priority • Look at your systems holistically (a business view), regardless of where your servers sit • Clarify and document your permissions, information architecture, templates, content types, taxonomy -- and ownership of each • First define what policies, procedures, and metrics are needed to manage your environment, and then look at what is possible across your cloud and on-prem instances #T16CloudESPC
