  • “ Cloud Computing” promises to transform how businesses use IT resources... -- as a means to drive down costs ... Spend less on maintaining systems and more on pursuing business opportunities -- as a means to gain better control over costs ... Provide more flexible options for workload hosting -- as a means to unleash innovative ideas ... Enable end-users to deliver new solutions with greater ease and less cost -- as a means to gain competitive advantage ... Better service, better responsiveness
  • Local calls were made through human “Operators” well into the 1950’s. In many parts of the country you could only make long distance calls through an Operator well into the 1970’s. Automation was required in order to be able to keep up with increasing call volumes. The standardization of the Ford assembly line was later improved with the Toyota Production System and the implementation of new technologies, e.g. robotics. To be able to deliver the service provided by ATMs, tremendous breakthroughs in standardization were required – to all you to conduct transactions from any machine, without regard to whether you have an account with the owner of the machine.
  • When it comes to delivering a cloud deployment there is a spectrum of deployment options available for you to choose from. The most common and written about is the public cloud option like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), or Google Apps. These cloud deployments allow any user with a credit card to gain access to the resources. To a private cloud deployment where all the resources are owned, managed and controlled by the enterprise. To gradations in between from third party managed, to third party hosted, to a very common emerging model called “shared cloud services” or “member cloud services.” Here you must be a member to access the services, and they can be made available to you typically in a shared resources option or a dedicated resources option, depending on your needs and configurations. It is this last model where IBM has offerings call IBM Smart Business Services on the IBM Cloud. Finally you can merge the options between public and private and create what has been coined a “hybrid cloud”. When it comes to deciding which cloud delivery option you want to choose it needs to tailored to the business, the time and money requirements, and the availability of the resources. There is a spectrum of delivery options, and there is no single right way. Private Implemented on client premises Client runs/ manages Managed private cloud Third-party operated Enterprise owned Mission critical Packaged applications High compliancy Hosted private cloud Internal network Third-party owned and operated Standardization Centralization Security Internal network Mix of shared and dedicated resources Shared Cloud Services Shared facility and staff Virtual private network (VPN) access Subscription or membership based Shared resources Public Cloud Elastic scaling Pay as you go Public Internet A Hybrid cloud solution is some mix of private and public integrated with your traditional IT to deliver the cloud solution to the end user and can involve any of the public to private options.
  • Every business and organization today has a current plan of record for how they want IT to support their business. For many, it is about consolidating assets, virtualizing to increase asset utilizations and reduce costs, as well as standardizing and automating to improve service delivery and lower operational labor costs. These are key to achieving an optimal and effective cloud computing experience for the end user, and maximizing value to the business.

  • We then asked the participants in the survey to identify whether they would prefer the workload be delivered internal with a private cloud, or would they be willing have it run in a fully shared environment on a public cloud. This chart gives us then the top 10 workloads for each of those delivery types. The only workload that spans both lists is a test environment infrastructure for applications. This chart with the previous one will provide for you then IBM’s strategic direction in cloud computing. We will be responsive to the desires of the market in helping to build private clouds, as well as leverage services on the IBM cloud.
  • The coverage we have gotten is important, but results really speak for themselves. This chart depicts the common attributes of cloud computing that we discussed earlier and the associated business impact of what a cloud-enabled enterprise can provide. You can see there’s quite a difference. Why can a cloud environment have this kind of effect? The key is that the cloud is based on three essential fundamentals: It’s standardized, it’s virtualized and it’s automated. That’s how you can provide scalable services. That’s the way you’re going to see efficiency. And that’s the way you’re going to drive down costs and improve service. That’s really a pretty simple equation, and we are seeing clients that are doing this achieve very real, measurable business results. For example: Virtualization of IT resources —servers, storage, networks and applications—are pooled and virtualized to help provide an implementation-independent, efficient infrastructure with elastic scaling , meaning the environments can scale up and down by large factors as demand changes. Automation through a self-service portal and automated provisioning Standardization of pricing, processes and services The results shown here are indicative of typical results of IBM cloud clients, based on our client experiences and our own internal results.
  • This reflects both our analysis of workloads and our work with clients. Looked at elements enabling gain (core architecture, potential for standardization), and introducing pain (tight coupling with other apps, data volume, business policies). Attractive workloads fall into the space of traditional apps moving to a loosely coupled model, with some database centric and content centric aspects. Rich field for clients to look at. Some client CIOs say up to 80% of their apps (in terms of number, not volume or value) fall into these categories.
  • Virtualization is the first key step in building a cloud infrastructure and the decision on the virtualization platform could result in limitations down the road, if not carefully considered.
  • zEnterprise delivers an even faster processor core and a larger cache memory structure. These improvements directly benefit the “density” of workload consolidation using Linux on z/VM. In general, zEnterprise clients will be able to host more virtual servers per IFL than possible with z10 or earlier systems. The estimated increase is expected to be approximately 30%. Potentially higher in some cases. This is to say, if a z10-based environment can host 30 virtual servers per IFL, a zEnterprise environment would likely be able to host 39 or more of the same virtual servers on a zEnterprise IFL. For software licensed on a per-real-core basis, this represents a significant cost savings. Being able to host more virtual servers per IFL, per z/VM, per zEnterprise also increases staff productivity (a higher consolidation density helps users manage more virtual servers per person). The new RAIM technology in zEnterprise increases overall system availability in the event there is a memory failure. This nicely complements the dynamic CPU sparing capability of System z for added levels of fault tolerance. For I/O and networking, System z and z/VM offer exceptionally high levels of availability by supporting multiple paths of connectivity to device and network assets. Application Serving Blades offer clients another option for hosting workloads that integrate with System z environments (like z/OS and even Linux on System z). The attractiveness of using ASBs is greatly increased with the availability of the Unified Resource Manager, which simplifies the operational management of a System z environment that incorporates non-System z processors.
  • While we have expanded the options available for deploying Linux workloads, utilizing Linux on z can drive significant financial benefits, particularly for larger scale deployments. With the new zEnterprise, each IFL delivers significantly more performance and capacity for a substantially lower price than System z10. With the ability to consolidate the workloads of thousands of distributed servers on to a single z196, the TCA of System z is now lower than some Intel environments for certain workloads. What’s more, with this scale of consolidation you can reduce physical floor space requirements and energy consumption by up to 90 and 80% respectively. Finally, the introduction of the Unified Resource manager brings improved workload management to a Linux on System z environment, further improving its ability to deliver great service to the business.
  • Two new offerings are now available to help companies more effectively consolidate workloads on a large scale… with superior total cost of ownership and superior qualities of service. The Enterprise Linux Server (ELS) is a new machine configured with hardware and software resources that make it ready to run a large-scale virtual Linux server environment. The ELS is an ideal option for non-mainframe users looking to deploy the very best server technology for their large-scale consolidation requirements. The standalone ELS machine does not require an existing IBM System z infrastructure. The ELS solution includes processor cores (IFLs), memory (16 GB per core), I/O connectivity to attach disks and networks, and z/VM software. 3-to-5 years of hardware maintenance and 3-to-5 years of z/VM subscription and support is also included. The z/VM software stack includes: -- z/VM base product -- Performance Toolkit feature – monitors and reports on system performance, even at a virtual machine level -- RACF Security server feature – helps client manage user authorizations and access to system resources -- DirMaint – the Directory Maintenance feature simplifies the task of creating and modifying virtual machines configurations -- RSCS – the Remote Spooling Communications Subsystem feature provides NJE (Network Job Entry) connectivity for Linux systems to access z/OS and z/VSE systems. It also provides connectivity to printers. The ELS is available using z10 BC or z10 EC technology. A BC ELS machine can be configured with up to 10 processor cores. An EC ELS machine can be configured with up to 64 processor cores for even greater scalability. The Solution Edition for Enterprise Linux enables clients to add a similar solution stack of hardware and software to an existing System z machine and enjoy the same business advantages of consolidating workloads on System z using Linux. Existing mainframe clients may also find the ELS offering to be an attractive option, especially if they plan to deploy a large virtual Linux server environment Novell and Red Hat are offering new promotions for the Enterprise Linux Server and the Solution Edition for Enterprise Linux. These offerings include new pricing for large-scale configurations. The pricing for ELS and the Solution Edition for Enterprise Linux are extremely attractive, greatly enhancing the economics of consolidating on IBM System z technology.
  • WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance allows you to create and dispense multi-server patterns of virtualized IBM middleware products. Today, WebSphere CloudBurst supports WebSphere Application Server and DB2, but that list will grow to include WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Portal Server later this year. Also coming later this year, in a release planned for 1Q10, the WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance will be able to dispense its multi-server patterns into z/VM virtualized environments to bring this compelling value into the System z space. Unmatched IBM middleware virtualization management We are not dispensing black boxes; we understand what we’re dispensing. We can apply fixpacks, iFixes, and can configure multi-server configurations of our own products. Other products can dispense multiple images, but do not know how to federate them into a cell, create clusters, and install applications. Because we know our software, we can remove more of the expensive, repetitive, error-prone manual tasks Secure Appliance Basis for security throughout virtual image lifecycle. Security is manifested in a set of public/private keys. Public keys are stored on the hard disks, which are externally accessible and removable (for replacement in event of failure). Private keys reside on a flash disk inside the case. If you open the case, the flash disk is destroyed, which renders the contents of the hard disk unreadable and useless. Hence, physical access to the box does not allow a malicious person to compromise the security of the entire cloud.

  • Press release: http://blogs.eweek.com/ibm-oracle/content/business_intelligence_/system_z_proving_to_be_a_big_catch_for_fishermen.html Fish Market Fishermen can use a "touch screen" installed on their boats to describe which kind of fish they are catching. If that fish is in demand by the market, the solution starts an electronic auction. If the bid price is below certain level the fish sale is redirected to non-profit company, e.g. soup kitchen. If the price is above the level, the solution automatically specifies the quantity to be distributed into boxes ready for shipping and distribution upon arrival. Solution is available on the zCloud for use by different fish markets (distributed on territory). Wine market Winemakers at up to 60 cooperative wineries are able to determine market demand for various types of wines by accessing the cloud computing-based systems, then package and ship wines demanding the highest price.   MoniCA: Monitoraggio e Controllo Adattivo Logistics solution that tracks and collects data in real time from trucks (e.g. temperature, humidity, shocks and routes). Solution will be available on the zCloud to serve different logistics companies.
  • Target Market and Audience/Roles: This offering is targeted to the large enterprise to enable greater efficiency for delivery of BI across the corporation. The decision makers within the enterprise for this kind of a solution are chief officers and senior level IT executives, as this offering involves raising decision making for BI within the enterprise from departmental levels to a corporate level. Client Needs Addressed by this offering: ( Describe key consumer-facing capabilities) The proliferation of business intelligence and performance management tools and deployments around the enterprise often resulting in multiple tools and tens (if not more) overall deployments Ability to support and comply with corporate and regulatory standards when no two BI deployments look exactly alike Rising costs for delivering BI/analytics/performance management within the enterprise, as each instance requires ongoing operations costs plus initial start-up costs which include hardware, set-up costs, software, etc. The need for a cohesive BI/analytics/performance management strategy for the corporation. Utilization of skilled workers is ineffective when there are many deployments requiring ongoing operations and support Value Proposition for this offering: A corporate wide BI strategy created on cloud computing that is supported at the highest levels in the executive ranks. Centralization enables a core concentrated BI service that is standardized across the lines of business and user install base without removing the LOB control to own and manage their own end to end BI solution A concentrated service strategy for BI supports simpler enforcement of corporate and regulatory standards, including security and boarding processes A subscription model, based on user chargebacks enables departmental budgets to stretch farther and cover more users Reduced costs overall with greater operational efficiency and a centralized service strategy based on economies of scale More efficient utilization of the BI skilled workforce with a centralized service strategy
  • The IBM Corporation is the first consumer of the Smart Analytics Cloud for System z. Blue Insight is the world’s largest private cloud solution and resulted in a $23M savings projection over the next 5 years, representing +56% savings of Business Intelligence (BI) costs from previous departmental BI solutions. The business problems IBM was able to overcome with Blue Insight: Movement from a proliferation of BI products and BI installations around the enterprise to a single, centralized deployment The organic growth of BI with departmental BI deployments was reversing the direction of the Enterprise Computing strategy (Project Big Green Mainframe Consolidation) We were able to arrest the rising costs of BI/Performance Management delivery within the enterprise by focusing on a single standardized service based delivery of BI Tackled the lack of common BI/PM skills (Hyperion, Actuate, ArcPlan, Brio, etc.) by focusing on utilizing the best and brightest to make service delivery of BI enterprise wide Overcome the lack of BI/PM strategy within the enterprise by deploying a strategic business intelligence competency as part of our Blue Insight cloud service that is shareable enterprise wide Difficulty meeting the growing volumes of IBM users who require BI to do their job was assuaged by building a dynamic service on System z where we can add resources on the fly to scale up and back down as required Cloud computing held a lot of promise for IBM, but up to this point most of the cloud computing projects in IBM were based around more traditional Amazon style computing. To ensure a successful deployment of the Smart Analytics Cloud for System z in IBM we needed to deliver the value of cloud computing in a private setting without negatively impacting the behavior or results for the enterprise. Here are the considerations for success in IBM: Executive sponsorship of the CIO office Extensive socialization of the notion of centralized services as being self service and necessary for enterprise efficiency without sacrificing business agility Governance of licensing and infrastructure delivery of BI solutions Know where BI investments are being made throughout the enterprise – “Follow the money” Control points in procurement and infrastructure delivery for new BI solutions Inventory and review planned investments in BI enterprise wide Behavioral change – Not all services for a particular business segment need to be controlled by the organization Cloud approach provides the tenant with central tools NOT central solutions Perception by adopters needs to be a ‘self service’ model, with extended services Positive business case Centralized service needs to produce real savings via Centralized infrastructure and support, process simplification and talent reuse The private cloud deployment model represents a significant return on investment for the IBM corporation and is a delivery model that will be considered beyond business intelligence and performance management.
  • Let’s talk about what the product is. As I mentioned, it’s a system of systems. And what we - what that does for our clients is it helps unify IT across a heterogeneous environment to produce predictable service delivery models as three main components. On the left the z Enterprise 196, the world’s fastest server. It’s ideal for large data and transaction serving in mission critical applications just as Z has always been. But even more so with the performance and scalability of this platform and additional enhancements such as the new release z/OS, z/OS 1.12. It’s also the lowest cost platform for large scale Linux consolidation. And finally, it’s capable of massive scale. Over 50 billion instructions per second if you want to calculated. It’s interesting, we now are kind of switching from talking from mps, now we’re going to be talking about bps. It’s a truly massive scale. The next stage of this is something we call the unified resource management. And this really is the secret sauce. It allows us to integrate workloads running on different platforms. Now those platforms could be z/OS, they can be Linux on System z, they can be IBM Blade, specifically Power 7and System X Blades for more scale out applications. The unified resource manager gives us a way to integrate the management of the workload platforms and hardware and produce the kind of workload management normally only available in a z/OS environment. By moving the z/OS capabilities for workload management into the Firmware we’re able to provide that workload management to improve application availability and our clients’ ability to meet service level in a z/OS, a Linux on Z and a heterogeneous environment with Power 7 and X86. Really unifying that management is the key concept here. And on the right you see the chassis that allows us then to plug those into a System z environment. It’s based on the IBM Blade Center and it is an extension to the System z. It’s shipped from the factory, configured and tested with private data and management networks for high speed low (unintelligible) communication between the Blade environment on the right and the System z Enterprise on the left. It includes both general purpose Blades based on Power 7 and X86 and specific optimizers that accelerate time to insight and reduced costs. Now I will tell you to make a comment here on availability without specific dates. The system on the left, the Enterprise 196 that will GA later this summer. The extension of that with the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) will occur in the fourth quarter of this year with Power 7 and the optimizers. And in 2011 for the inclusion of X86 applications and Blades in that environment. So it’ll be a phased environment. And that’s actually what our clients are looking for because they really want to be able to get the new System z installed and then start extending that out to their integrated environment. Let’s talk about the z - the Enterprise 196. Why do we call it a 196?

  • Putting zEnterprise System to the task – Use the smarter solution to improve your application design Note to a presenter.. this chart can wrap up what you’ve told the customer about the new solution in 1 picture. The Purple boxes and lines represent the Unified Resource Manager, it’s agents and the private support network (intra-node network management). The dotted line shows that z/OS and Linux on System z will offer monitor capabilities but not turn over management (provide agents) to Unified Resource Manager. The orange arrow at the bottom is the private data network (called Intra-ensemble data network – IEDN). You can point out the z196, the zBX, the blades and optimizers. Note to the presenter: Depending on your comfort level, and time, you can talk about: How the hypervisors are treated as system z firmware That the general purpose x and p blades are virtualized unconditionally The SE has been extended to orchestrate hardware operational control for the blades as well as for System z (config, problem management, call home, etc) The blades are optional, and you get the Unified Resource Manager capabilities with the system z196 (don’t need a zBX to get value) The role of the HMC is being extended, and is evolving to be a full function platform management appliance The HMC represents the "management access point" for all Unified Resource Manager management functions The hypervisors are PS/SM, z/VM, PowerVM and there will be a hypervisor for System x when it’s available 1H11. There is compelling value here is that the Unified Resource Manager has "workload awareness" where workloads consist of virtual images across the hybrid Also we offer performance management to monitor the CPU We deliver end-to-end consistent hardware service management (CE, patch, call home) for the entire h/w topology. Transition: And let’s take one more look at the flexibility you will have in decided where to run your application based on your service level requirements.

  • One point of control to manage business services. Tivoli. Unique in the industry. Unique for service management in a world of complexity.
  • Clients interviewed showed a much stronger preference for private clouds than either public or hybrid delivery models. Nonetheless, we believe that the preference for public cloud services will grow over the next few years. The companies that did show of preference for public cloud in our study display certain common characteristics. They are: More likely to be using a provider for traditional outsourcing of infrastructure and/or business processes Less likely to view loss of control over IT resources as an obstacle to acquiring Public Cloud More likely to view application/database, availability, and incident/problem management as critical processes for their business and More likely to be US businesses

      • Multi-tenancy: multiple companies or users using the same software with a level of isolation
        • Tenants are companies or users that would have historically installed and used a single instance of software solely for their own use
        • Multi-tenancy allows companies/users to use the same software with a level of isolation
      • Multi-tenancy can further reduce hardware and maintenance costs of DBaaS
      • Analogous to users running various applications on the same operating system
        • The point is to share management and hardware costs among a number of tenants
        • Tenants, like the distinct users on an operating system require a level isolation
