  • Conceptually, we can view the architecture in terms of the four tiers shown here.Infrastructure Operating Environment: is a shared-services engine that provisions and adapts application environments on the fly, to instantly respond to business demands. It helps businesses accelerate the delivery of application environments in a predictable, repeatable way that makes the most efficient use of IT resources and staff time. This enables IT organizations to drive high levels of standardization that frees administrator time and IT capacity to support business goals more effectivelyHP’s Infrastructure Operating Environment is uniquely built from HP Insight Dynamics/Control infrastructure software, mission-critical and HP business service software portfolios to meet the demanding nature of enterprise IT environments today.Key benefits: Delivers new services in minutes instead of months - Optimize infrastructure and resource utilization confidently - Protects continuity and quality of services Flex Fabric: can connect 1000’s of servers to a virtualized, high performance and low-latency network that consolidates multiple protocols into a single fabric to dramatically lower network complexity and cost. By moving network intelligence away from the core and closer to the server edge, Flex Fabric dramatically simplifies today’s hierarchical, complex and inflexible networking and improves overall network performance, utilization and flexibility. This unique, wire-once approach will enable customers to converge Ethernet and storage networks onto one fabric and easily adapt connections and performance to meet changes in workload demand and to move workloads across or between data centersHP will deliver the Flex Fabric vision by converging the technology, management tools and partner ecosystems of the HP ProCurve and Virtual Connect network portfolios into a virtualized fabric for the data center. Key benefits:Configures multiple protocols into a single fabric across flexible connections to reduce cost and complexity -- Dynamically scales capacity to match application demand on the fly -- Instantly migrates connections as applications move across different resources -- Provides predictable performance and quality of service from increased bandwidth and lower latency, governed by security and service level policies:Adaptive Resource pools: are created from purpose-built systems able to create virtualized, shared capacity that can be combined, divided and repurposed to match any application demand faster and more efficiently. Individual systems can be carved up or aggregated together to present a large pool that can be optimized for a variety of applications. This means you can source resources internally or externally and assemble them dynamically from pools of today’s resources or tomorrows. Fully orchestrated by IOE - creating adaptive pools of resources and orchestrating those pools collectively we are removing the silos of dedicated management and skill set which raise costs and complexity. This enables customers to meet the unique, dynamic requirements of a converged infrastructure and shared-services model by maximizing the scalability, flexibility and utilization of resources.Based on 25+ years of leadership in adaptive and mission critical IT systems, HP will accelerate the creation of adaptive resource pools by converging the capabilities of bladed, mission critical and scale-out systems across the ProLiant, Integrity, StorageWorks and ProCurve portfolios.Benefits:Increases total utilization by freeing and repurposing trapped capacity to support applications --- Ensures resiliency and flexibility to support any application on any resource --- Accelerates standardization to enable higher levels of automation and increase productivity --- Protects investments through simplified integration with existing systems, upgrades to new capabilities and scalability to meet future demand Data Center Smart Grid: Consolidation and energy-efficient systems are the table stakes today, actually knowing what your power envelope is and then having the ability to do something about it and optimize energy use is the next step forward. The HP Data Center Smart Grid creates an intelligent, energy-aware environment the entire data center, including IT and facilities. Addressing and integrating the data center allows optimization of energy effectiveness to increase facility capacity and reduce energy costs. The HP Data Center Smart Grid collects and communicates 1000’s of power and cooling measurements across IT systems and facilities in real-time to give customers insight and control over energy. This enables continued business growth by increased IT support within the same environment, increasing data center productivity and ROI. Based on HP’s unique expertise spanning system engineering, environmental management and facility design, the HP Data Center Smart Grid extends Thermal Logic technology from IT systems to broader, environmental monitoring and control across the facility and eventually, 3rd party IT and data center systems.Key benefits: Increases the capacity and useful lifespan of the data center, postponing or eliminating additional capital expense -- Reduces operating costs required to power and cooling IT systems --- Improves reliability by optimizing power and cooling efficiency of IT and facilities --- Provides insight and control over energy costs and environmental impactTRANSITION: Bringing all of this together from the ground up, requires a unique set of assets.

      It’s about TCO and not just purchase price
      Power consumption/Cooling
      Power delivery to the data centre
      Space – VM per meter of rack!
      Converged infrastructure TCO
      Ensure SLA for cloud consumers
      Performance – define a VM, external network, Disk IOPS/data bandwidth
      Availability
      Resilience and High Availability
      Recovery time  MTTR
      Rapidly build more catalogue items
      Hosting instances, not just VMs and disk
    • 9. Design Guidelines
      Deliver VMs with no practical constraints
      VM definition: EC2-like or customer specified physical core oversubscription
      IP and SAN bandwidth per VM: 100Mb/s IP, 200Mb/s SAN from Gartner
      User memory per VM: VMware 3GB and allow Linux 500M and Windows 1G
      Provide physical and virtual pools of servers (and storage)
      Network guidelines
      Ensure no bandwidth limitations/bottlenecks from high oversubscription
      Distribute server and storage infrastructure to reduce load on core
      Decrease tiers in architecture to decrease latency
      Reduce component count – including NICS and cables
      Target best TCO
    • 10. Server Guidelines and Proposals
      Principles
      HP Blades in c7000 enclosures
      Provide physical dedicated and virtualised shared servers
      Virtual connect/Flex Fabric
      Use 1 or 2 standard blades with minimum options limited to memory and disk
      Proposals
      x
      Above minimum requirement
      More VM to recover if blade fails
      Some applications cannot use more than 4 cores

      Storage Guidelines and Proposals
      Principles & Proposals
      Dual site resilient storage
      Preference is to use all IP networks removing Fiber Channel complexity but not always possible
      Multi tenancy admin in storage arrays
      Recognize 2 storage requirements: Tiered and Scale out
      How many GB and IOPS for tiered storage per server?
      GB is a customer specified item
      Typical server: 200 Mb/s (Gartner); use block size to get IOPS

      24
      Footer goes here
      For today’s workloads, cloud built enterprise class infrastructure can offer the lowest TCO
      Why?
      Lower energy consumption though efficient design, smart cooling, smart power capping
      Less energy consumed, less cooling required
      Less energy consumed, higher rack density and less data centre space required
      Less human intervention avoids errors
      Better performance from each blade permitting more VM per CPU
      Better resource management decreases the infrastructure consumed
      Better management keeps system running longer and allows migration of tenants when system is degraded
      Better management allows lights out operation
      Greater infrastructure reliability prevents failures (down time & rebates, repair cost, customer care cost)
      Easier to design infrastructure with less risk in development and integration, greater flexibility for innovation
      No network distribution layer decreases cost and improves performance
      Less cables, NICs, etc.
      And in a highly competitive environment, this decreases TCO/break even time, improves profitability/ROI and makes you more competitive
