  • There’s been a lot of talk about the decline in PCs, but in a presentation by Microsoft COO Kevin Turner last summer at a Seattle partner event, Kevin pointed out an important fact: that people may not be buying as many laptops, but they are picking up and using multiple devices on a daily basis. So whether you are supporting PCs and laptops, smartphones, tablets, or embedded devices, realize that your employees and team are using more devices than ever before, and that rate continues to rise.
  • Discuss early days of MMS, and re-learning many of these same issues.
  • 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. <br /> <br /> According to IDC, an important factor driving growth in public IT cloud services spending is the expanding variety of cloud deployment options. <br /> As these platforms mature, cloud services adoption will increase dramatically. <br /> Virtual private cloud (VPC) offerings are shifting momentum from dedicated private cloud offerings toward public (shared/multi-tenant) cloud offerings. <br />
  • For all of the reasons mentioned in the intro slides, people want flexibility in their solutions, whether online or offline.
  • Financial decisions about IT are being pushed down to business owners, rather than IT <br /> This is new for many managers <br /> Most businesses need something lightweight <br /> Designed for their business, not collaboration overkill <br /> <br />
  • 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). <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> 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. <br /> 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. <br />
  • 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.
  • Demo – <br /> Permissions Report <br /> Highlight how someone gets permissions <br /> Show users with Direct Permissions <br /> Show Cleanup User Permissions <br /> Show Authenticated Users <br /> Orphan User <br /> Revoke Permissions <br /> <br /> From pervious slide – show tagging sites to show confidential, etc <br />
  • Demo <br /> Audit log report <br /> Site or Site Collection features <br /> Talk about archiving the audit log
  • Demo <br /> CP alerts for permissions changes - Receive alerts when changes are made <br /> CP policies - Prevent users from causing havoc

Baby-Stepping Into the Cloud with Hybrid Workloads Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Baby-Stepping Into the Cloud with Hybrid Workloads Christian Buckley Managing Director, Americas cbuck@gtconsult.com
  • 2. Christian Buckley Managing Director, Americas GTconsult cbuck@gtconsult.com www.buckleyplanet.com @buckleyplanet
  • 3. Topics I’ll cover today: • What are the various paths toward the cloud? • What is a hybrid SharePoint environment, and does it make sense for my business? • How does the cloud impact my ability to manage SharePoint across the enterprise? • What is the best approach to transition into the cloud?
  • 4. Your Hybrid Path • What are your plans / corporate goals for the cloud today? • Which workloads do you have in the cloud today? • What is your transition plan? • What is your management / governance strategy?
  • 5. • According to Gartner early last year (2013) and repeated by Microsoft at their Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC13) in Houston, in the next 6-8 years: • 35% of existing SharePoint customers will never move to the cloud • 15% will become “pure cloud” customers • 50% will adopt a hybrid SharePoint platform
  • 6. • One year later, at the Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington DC (WPC14), a senior Microsoft leader admitted hybrid was bigger than earlier estimated: • 15-20% of existing SharePoint customers will never move to the cloud • 10% will become “pure cloud” customers • 70-75% will adopt a hybrid SharePoint platform
  • 7. SharePoint Growth & Evolution SharePoint Releases Metadata Content
  • 8. Office 365 Adoption • Microsoft has shared limited statistics on how Office 365 is being adopted, but did provide some detail into the reasons why customers purchased O365: • 90% use the platform for Exchange • 6% for Lync • 4% for SharePoint
  • 9. Other Hybrid Scenarios
  • 10. 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
  • 11. The CIO Dilemma: Balancing end user requests with compliance and governance constraints, weighing costs and flexibility
  • 12. The cloud decision is intrinsically tied to end user adoption and, ultimately, business alignment
  • 13. Alternatives for control, cost, & capability
  • 14. Software as a Service • Standardized (packaged) platform • Provided with Service Level Agreements (SLAs) • Minimal customization • Both software and hardware infrastructure provided within the service
  • 15. Platform as a Service • Architectural and development access to application services, storage, and application runtime • Infrastructure Service Level Agreements (SLAs), but work must be conducted within agreed framework • Some customizations allowed, within framework • Both software and hardware infrastructure provided within the service
  • 16. Infrastructure as a Service • Virtualized hardware and software, including servers, storage, and network infrastructure • All components delivered as metered services (pay per use) • Complete application control and customization
  • 17. 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.
  • 18. You can deploy SharePoint 2013 solutions on physical and virtual infrastructures, which include the following environments: • On-premises, physical or virtual • Private cloud (in-house) • Private cloud (hosted) • Public cloud
  • 19. On Premises Cloud
  • 20. On Premises Cloud
  • 21. On Premises Cloud AD Azure ADFS AD
  • 22. On Premises Cloud
  • 23. Common Scenarios • Rapid provisioning of new workloads on Office 365 while maintaining existing on-premises workloads • Organizations wishing to migrate workloads from an existing on-premises environment to the cloud over time in a phased approach • Organizations wanting to supplement their cloud environment with additional features or customizations which are currently only possible on-premises • Compliance or data sovereignty reasons which might stipulate certain data be hosted in a particular location Hybrid SharePoint Environments with Office 365, Microsoft
  • 24. Private Cloud Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure maintained solely for customer On premises or off Managed by the customer, or by a 3rd party hoster Multiple infrastructure options Components both on premises and off premises Management spread between customer and 3rd party hosters Public Cloud Infrastructure shared by multiple customers Off premises Managed by 3rd party on behalf of customers
  • 25. Partner Hosted Private Cloud • Dedicated environment • Externally hosted • Externally or internally managed • Internally designed Self Hosted Private Cloud • Dedicated environment • Internally hosted • Internally managed • Internally designed Shared or Dedicated Public Cloud • Shard or dedicated environment • Externally hosted • Externally managed • Externally designed Dedicated Public Cloud • Partially or fully dedicated • Externally hosted • Externally or internally managed • Minimal customization http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4633.what-is-infrastructure-as-a-service.aspx Traditional on prem
  • 26. Factors in your cloud planning • Location / facilities • Software licenses and support • Hardware and maintenance • Onsite support, personnel skills • Level of customization • Governance, auditing, security, compliance • Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity • Upgrades and migration
  • 27. On Premises Cloud Hybrid Need space and maintenance planning Most likely provided Licensing costs, but also upgrades and ongoing support Included in vendor-hosted solutions Need to purchase, support and maintain, and upgrade as platform matures Included in vendor-hosted solutions Administrative, developer, and end user skills and training Still requires administrative and possibly dev skills, end user training Need space and maintenance planning Licensing costs, but also upgrades and ongoing support Need to purchase, support and maintain, and upgrade as platform matures Administrative, developer, and end user skills and training
  • 28. On Premises Cloud Hybrid Full control Limited to none in SaaS, some control over PaaS, full control over IaaS Limited ability to integrate depending on SaaS, PaaS, or IaaS Many limitations OTB, but very robust tools from partners Limited Very complex across on prem and cloud components, very manual Needs to be planned, limited features OTB Defined in SLAs Some OTB capabilities, 3rd party for tighter control and predictability Microsoft recommends 3rd party tools Very complex across on prem and cloud components, very manual Some OTB capabilities, 3rd party for tighter control and predictability
  • 29. Service Delivery
  • 30. Technical Governance Means… • Logins work • Data is secure • System performs well • Metadata applied • End users can quickly find their content • Storage is optimized • Content lifecycles in place, regularly reviewed • Legal and regulatory requirements being met
  • 31. 5 things to think about as you make the transition to the cloud
  • 32. 1. Define and communicate your usage policies and procedures. • Start with non-technical elements • Develop a Security Policy • Implement a training plan for end users • Develop a strategy for ensuring users know what content is confidential
  • 33. 2. Document your permissions best practices. • Apply permissions using Least Privileged principles • Don’t give users Direct Access • Embrace SharePoint Groups and/or Active Directory Groups • Ensure Appropriate Use of the Authenticated Users Group • Clean up Orphan Users • Use Broken Inheritance Responsibly • Revoke permissions quickly
  • 34. 3. Plan for regular audits of access to content and sites. • Are we adhering to Compliance or Governance requirements? • Who has been accessing specific content? • How often are specific sites being accessed? • What features of SharePoint are being used? • Are we managing the volume of log data?
  • 35. 4. Monitor changes to security settings. • SharePoint security changes over time • Ensure users are continuing to adhere to security policies • Prevent users from causing havoc • We need to plan how we will stay on top of changes
  • 36. 5. Empower users and admins with the right permissions. • Find your responsible business content owners • Enable and Equip them to manage access to their content • Ensure management access is limited to those with appropriate permissions • Segment your administration responsibilities – Power Users, business owners
  • 37. The Future of SP Services • • • •
  • 38. Best Practices • Assess and prioritize what is to be moved • Delegate to end users what you can • Move one workload at a time • Make governance a priority
