Vazata Federal IaaS

  1. 1. Horizon Data Center Solutions: Company & Capabilities Overview Company & Capabilities Overview
  2. 2. <ul><li>Secure, stable and scalable IT Infrastructure for mission critical applications. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider serving: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Global 1000 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>US Federal Government </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mid-market enterprises </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solve technology problems through purpose-built cloud architecture ( Structure™ ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Redundant Network Connectivity and Power Infrastructure </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ability to Grow with Customer’s Success </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>US Federal Government Tested Data Security </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Compelling ROI </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>On June 28, 2011, became first IaaS provider to receive an Authority to Operate (ATO) under the US Government ’ s “ Cloud First ” cost savings initiative. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Completed best-in-class audits, including SAS 70 Type II (SSAE 16) and NIST 800-53 accreditation (containing over 30 times the control objectives for a typical SAS 70 Type II audit). </li></ul></ul>Our Story 2
  3. 3. Our Operations <ul><li>We manage all layers o f our infrastructure so we can ensure the quality and performance of our solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>Founded in 2000 as Mareechi and merged with Horizon Data Center Solutions in 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>Renamed company as Vazata in September, 2011 </li></ul><ul><li>We designed our infrastructure for mission critical managed hosting, cloud computing and colocation </li></ul><ul><li>We operate 3 Tier III data centers (two in Dallas, one in Northern Virginia) </li></ul><ul><li>We’ve established top-tier partnerships and invested in “best of breed” capability </li></ul>3
  4. 4. Our Customer Experience <ul><ul><li>We understand what matters most. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Security: in today’s world, CIOs face more security and compliance challenges than ever. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We ’ ve been accredited to provide IaaS solutions to US Federal Government branches that are hyper-sensitive to security concerns (ie: Homeland Security, US Department of Treasury, etc.). </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stability: disaster recovery, business continuity and availability are core to your decision. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Not only do we adhere to contractually defined SLAs, but we ’ re one of the few providers that actually proactively report to our clients on performance levels. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Scalability: it ’ s critical that you choose a partner that can adapt and scale the solution. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We customize solutions to your needs today and we anticipate (with you) requirements for the future. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Accessibility: outsourcing doesn‘t mean you have to lose control or visibility. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We simply provide security, stability and scalability while you maintain direct control of your IT operations. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Administrative Ease: engaging a technology vendor shouldn‘t be tedious. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We move fast and won ’ t burden your staff, budget and timeline with tedious contracting, billing and administrative hassles. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fiscal Viability: the ROI has to make sense. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Pay for what you need, gain access to best-of-breed assets and forego cost- ineffective capital expenditures associated with building in-house. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>4
  5. 5. Common Challenges <ul><li>Economic uncertainty driving CIOs to halt projects, freeze hiring and pile more responsibility on </li></ul><ul><li>existing IT staff </li></ul><ul><li>Focus on key applications </li></ul><ul><li>93% of SMBs that suffer significant data loss are out of business in 5 years (US Bureau of labor) </li></ul><ul><li>Outages can cost SMBs over $12,000 per day (Symantec – 2011 SMB Disaster Recovery Survey) </li></ul><ul><li>August 2011: Amazon EC2 outage takes down Foursquare, Instagram, Quora, Reddit… </li></ul><ul><li>50% of SMBs have no disaster recovery plan in place, even though 65% of them operate in areas </li></ul><ul><li>vulnerable to natural disasters. (Symantec – 2011 SMB Disaster Recovery Survey) </li></ul><ul><li>According to USA Today , security firm CardCops has been tracking a 20% year-over-year </li></ul><ul><li>increase of hackers testing batches of payment card numbers to ensure they are still active </li></ul><ul><li>Corporate governance, privacy and security issues have created an increase in regulation </li></ul><ul><li>IT management must seriously consider how corporate data is used, accessed, archived, protected </li></ul><ul><li>Increased accountability and scrutiny is being placed on corporate executives </li></ul><ul><li>“ Optional” initiatives are moving quickly to “mandatory” </li></ul><ul><li>Hardware refresh </li></ul><ul><li>Network growth and challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Specialized projects </li></ul>Compliance & Legislation Security Threats Disasters Business Continuity Increasing IT Workload Hardware Requirements 5 Licensing <ul><li>The expense and management required to maintain software licensing can burden your IT operation </li></ul><ul><li>(VMware, Microsoft…). </li></ul>
  6. 6. Why Outsource IT Infrastructure? <ul><li>Strategic Gain: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Entrust someone else to wear the pager: count on SLAs but maintain CONTROL </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ensure high availability and audited/tested security: leverage the requirements of many </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus on your core competencies while leveraging ours as well </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Establish a clear path to upgrade: technology, people and process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adapt and scale easily: mergers, acquisitions, geographic expansion… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mitigate risk through multiple infrastructures: no single point of failure </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Financial Gain: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid high cost to build, maintain and predict operating expense without capital outlay (CapEx versus OpEx) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Access technical resources that are often harder to afford and retain in-house </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple internet providers, geo-diverse facilities, power, HVAC & fire suppression, network and computing infrastructure challenge ROI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most data centers do not populate server racks beyond 40-60% and typical utilization rates are between 7% and 15% in a non-virtualized environment. (Gartner) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Purchase flexibility enables you to optimize the solution for today and position your company for the future </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make an apples-to-apples comparison: you can ’ t harness the power, scale and security benefits of top-tier IT infrastructure in-house without compromising ROI </li></ul></ul>6
  7. 7. Our Data Center Platform <ul><ul><li>We manage ALL layers of our infrastructure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Facility Layer: 3 Tier III data centers in the US </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Compute Layer: HP c-7000 blades </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Storage Layer: 3Par T800 Series </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Network Layer: Cisco ASA 5500 and Fortinet Fortigate 310B for FW/IPS/IDS and F5 IP series for network load balancing </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Virtualization Layer: VMware products including ESX and Vsphere 5.0 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Our platform is purpose-built </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple data centers with private DWDM fiber connectivity </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SAS 70 Type II (SSAE 16), FISMA compliant, LEED certified data centers </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Data replication between facilities for DR/Back-up </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>7 VAZATA IaaS Multi-Site Design

  9. 9. Security in a Multi-Tenant Environment <ul><li>We’ve built in layers of protection comprised of Network (physical and virtual), VMware and administrative security: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Host Hardening: all hosts are “locked down” per VMware best practices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Security Testing: regular vulnerability scanning and penetration testing via 3 rd party auditors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Network Segmentation: we segment customer configurations and traffic by locking down Layer 2’s physical and virtual network </li></ul></ul>9 <ul><li>VMware technologies create logical security boundaries that provide isolation: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Role based access control provides a clear separation of workflow for Virtual Infrastructure and security administrators </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Secure Applications and virtual machines with adaptive trust zones </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Continuous assessment of IT compliance state and automated remediation </li></ul></ul>

  12. 12. Vazata and The US Government <ul><li>Why is our relationship with the Government relevant to you? Take a SAS70 Type II audit and pump it full of steroids... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In October, 2010, we were one of 12 companies awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) from the US General Services Administration (GSA) for IaaS to provide cloud services </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After 8-months of intensive US Government auditing of our infrastructure and delivery, we became the 1st provider to be awarded an Authority to Operate (ATO) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A standard SAS 70 Type II audit contains 25-30 control points whereas the ATO assesses and accredits 750+ control points for each “lot” – Cloud Storage, Virtual Machines and Cloud Web Hosting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Our extensive list of compliance achievements creates leverage for customers (FISMA, DIACAP, PCI, NIST 800-53, SSAE 16 Type II…) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We’ve achieved its SSAE 16 Type II for all 3 facilities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>Management Controls: Assessment & Authorization Planning Risk Assessment System & Services Acquisition Operational Controls: Awareness & Training Configuration Management Contingency Planning Incident Response Maintenance Media Prevention Physical & Environmental Protection Personnel Security System & Information Integrity Technical Controls: Access Control Audit & Accountability Identification & Authentication System & Communications Protection 12
