    Phase 3: Evaluating Cloud
    Phase 4: The Decision
    Phase 5: Strategy for Future State
    Wrap-up
    Outline
  • Renovations displacing current data center
    Move to colocation site for ~18mo. to assess
    Requirement: New Level 7+ to Level 8
    Build-out: $980,000 to $1,200,000
    Operating costs: $55,500 / yr
    Breakeven point: 35 Years
    85% Virtualized with all on SAN
    Consolidated infrastructure
    Applications moving to Cloud
    Synopsys
  • PHASE 1RENOVATION & MOVE
  • Built 1970
    1450 sq ft
    Raised floor
    15 Racks
    2 CRACs
    1 UPS
    No Generator
    SPOF’s
    Original Level 6 Data Center
  • Displaces the existing computer room
    LIBRARY RENOVATION
  • New Learning Space
  • Rapid needs assessment
    Surveyed anticipated future college needs
    Reviewed likely government and private providers
    Issued RFP for 18 months contract w/ options
    Selected local colo provider
    Built new MDF on campus
    Relocated over New Year’s weekend
    Total time: 5 months
    Colocation
  • PHASE 2FUTURE REQUIREMENTS
  • Hired a Data Center Design-Build Firm
    Requirements Analysis
    Existing Level 6 capabilities and uses
    Projected future requirements
    Determine Reliability Level (Level 7+ to 8)
    Developed Design-Build Specs
    Design Power, Cooling, Fire Suppression, Security
    Develop Budget Estimates
    Construction Costs: $980,000 to $1,200,000
    Annual Operating Costs: $55,500 / yr
    Design-Build Analysis
  • 525 ft2
    Computer
    Room
    Space Projections
  • 100 ft2
    Setup Area
    240 ft2
    Utility Area
    Space Projections
  • PHASE 3EVALUATING CLOUD
  • “The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing”
    On-demand self-service provisioning
    Broad network access
    Resource pooling
    Rapid elasticity, sometime automatically
    Measured service
    Cloud Computing Characteristics
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
    Provider app’s running on cloud infrastructure
    Consumer may control application configuration
    Can include Integration as a Service solutions
    Platform as a Service (PaaS)
    Consumer controls apps but not the O/S
    Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    Consumer controls O/S, apps, storage, network but not underlying infrastructure
    Cloud Service Models (NIST)
  • History & comfort with sourcing non-core services including IT
    Colocation operational & political success
    Ending IT managed services in 2011
    Strong interest in replacing ERP system
    General and IT budget constraints
    Data center not strategic
    Campus space at premium
    IT staffing a challenge for critical skills
    Institutional Assessment
  • Already Delivering Apps to other schools
    Community or Government Cloud Options
    State of Wisconsin Data Center
    Distance, limited services, budget uncertainty
    Regional Government Data Center
    CINC Community Area Network
    19 member organizations
    Expanding to 275 miles of fiber
    Building 1350 sq mi WiMax
    UW Eau Claire Shared Data Center
    Similar requirements but no capital
    Hybrid Cloud Assessment
  • Servers virtualized at 85%
    Solaris 80% at 4:1 ratio
    Windows 85% at 6:1 ratio enterprise wide
    Main ESX clusters at 15:1 in data center
    Storage 98% SAN (50TB)
    Remote site back-ups
    Citrix for desktop & remote access - 85 apps
    FY12 refreshing ESX, SAN, & Back-up
    Private fiber >10Gbps to 7 of 10 locations
    Infrastructure Assessment
  • More likely than not all future applications would run as a service not on premise?
    381 Applications in portfolio
    Down from 521
    185 are instructional apps used in courses
    Web site redesign eliminates ~25 more apps
    Early success with ASP and SaaS
    Enterprise apps remain the main barrier
    Banner ERP system
    BlackBoard CMS/LMS
    Applications Assessment
  • Student Services
  • Academic Functions

  • Operations Functions
  • IT Service Functions
  • Applications Portfolio Summary
  • PHASE 3THE DECISION
  • Do NOT Build New Data Center
    Not Strategic to College’s Mission
    35yr Breakeven Too Long
    Other Capital and Space Needs are Priorities
    Do NOT Build Shared Data Center w/ UWEC
    Extend Colocation for 12 months
    Execute Strategy
    Simplification, Consolidation & Preserving Options
    The Decision
  • PHASE 3STRATEGY for FUTURE STATE
  • Consolidated (Converged) Infrastructure
    CISCO UCS – Reducing footprint by 50%
    Hybrid Cloud – Private, Public maybe Community
    IaaS for Refresh Options on Storage and Back-Ups
    Applications Strategy
    ERP & LMS – SaaS or hosted options
    Evaluate point solutions over big ERP suites
    SaaS or Hosted preferred for anything new
    Integration as a Service for on-premise to cloud
    Desktop Strategy - MS BPOS or Google Apps
    Citrix from the cloud
    Strategy – Simplify & Options
