SAIC Next-Gen Transformational IT

  1. 1. Cloud Computing and Virtualization SAIC’s Approach to Next-Gen Transformational IT David Ayoub, GRD&T Chief Technology Officer 04 October 2009
  2. 2. Customer Focus • SAIC has a long and broad history with customers’ enterprise IT systems, CONUS and OCONUS, and from centralized systems to federated systems on the edge: i.e. Airborne, Shipboard, and in Theatre. As customers assess their objectives to meet their users’ needs, SAIC’s investments into next generation IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, will aid customers’ making effective decisions about investing and executing a cloud strategy appropriate for them. 2 Energy | Environment | National Security | Health | Critical Infrastructure © 2008 Science Applications International Corporation.

  3. 3. What is Cloud Computing An Amalgamation of Technologies An Amalgamation of Technologies – Converging on a Revolutionary and Transformational Services Delivery Model “A pay-per-use model for enabling available, convenient and on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.” NIST Definition Today, we (SAIC) see a requirement Other terms frequently associated with “cloud for SOA and services delivery in computing” include: virtually every major federal agency - “network-centric” IT services procurement. Tomorrow, we anticipate - “application service provider (ASP)” seeing “cloud”. - “external hosting” and “co-location” (Example: GSA IaaS/SaaS procurement) - “private cloud = Intranet-based” 3 Energy | Environment | National Security | Health | Critical Infrastructure © 2008 Science Applications International Corporation.

  4. 4. Key Attributes of the Cloud According to NIST • On demand • Dynamic scalability (elasticity) • Distributed resources • Rapid provisioning and de-provisioning • Ubiquitous network access • Metered or subscription billing – pay as you go • Message queuing 4 Energy | Environment | National Security | Health | Critical Infrastructure © 2008 Science Applications International Corporation.

  5. 5. SAIC’s Progress Today • SAIC is assembling an Industry Alliance comprised of many “Key” IT vendors – Alliance is engaged in the development of a number of pilot implementations • SAIC has an established Cloud Computing Community of Practice (COP) – Group generated from all over the company focusing on SAIC’s various strong customer-centric focus to Cloud Computing within industry – Focusing on Cloudbursting to support cyclic data processing (Data processing requirements to support surge or seasonal variations) • SAIC is internally exploring the use of cloud and implementing today the following: – Cloud Security- addressing key data integrity, access, and customer isolation concerns – Cloud Virtualization- Dynamic provisioning and bursting – Quality of Service- Availability and data processing 5 Energy | Environment | National Security | Health | Critical Infrastructure © 2008 Science Applications International Corporation.

  6. 6. SAIC’s Progress Today cont. • SAIC has been a Charter Member of the TechAmerica Cloud Computing Group • SAIC has developed the ability to stream NASA full motion video (e.g. cyclic data) through the Amazon cloud. • From our Bio surveillance projects we have installed our all source analytical framework with H1N1 flu data and financial management data. • SAIC offers LANSAT images commercially available through the Amazon Cloud. • SAIC has one recent procurement bearing Emergency Management and Law Enforcement DHS/ICE (consisting of 5 task orders) 6 Energy | Environment | National Security | Health | Critical Infrastructure © 2008 Science Applications International Corporation.
