  • 1. Dynamic Infrastructure A foundation for emerging data center models LORI MACVITTIE TECHNICAL MARKETING MANAGER F5 Networks
  • 2. FAILURE OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND DATA CENTER ARCHITECTURES TO EVOLVE WILL LEAD TO DECAY AND INCREASINGLY INEFFICIENT IT
  • 3. Growing Pains 19.1% of all new servers shipped in 2012 will be virtualized 1 admin per 35 virtual servers 1 admin per 25 standalone servers 5 VMs per server growing to 8 per server by 2012 IDC “Datacenter of the Future” March 2009
  • 4. The Need for Dynamic Infrastructure Employees Partners Customers Branch Offices Server Virtualization Outsourcers Legacy Applications & Infrastructure Software as a Service (SaaS) Social Computing Multi-Protocols Cloud Services – Internal / External Services complexity, Services Mobility scale, and user reach Infrastructure Gap People and Budgets Network Infrastructure and Resources Adapted from Seeking Alpha, October 2008 – Greg Ness

  • 9. An Evolutionary Process WEB 2.0 APPLICATIONS • Too much information to manage • Rapid and constant change • Need to know Problem • Desire / need to react • Push takes over from pull • Strategic points of control begin to emerge Adaptation • Automation of reaction begins • Send me an e-mail • React on my behalf based on context Solution
  • 10. An Evolutionary Process INFRASTRUCTURE • Too much information to manage • Rapid and constant change • Need to know Problem • Desire / need to react TECHNOLOGY GAP Adaptation • Automation of reaction begins • Provisioning • Management Solution • Monitoring
  • 11. dy·nam·ic in⋅fra⋅struc⋅ture characterized by continuous the basic, underlying framework or change, activity, or progress features of a system or organization. Adaptation
  • 12. DYNAMIC (COLLABORATIVE) INFRASTRUCTURE
  • 13. You can’t react to what you can’t see Visibility Data Collaboration  Intercept bi-directional application and data stream at all points of control  Each network device needs the ability to see all protocols  Reporting, notification, trending
  • 14. You can’t act on what you don’t understand Context Decision Collaboration  Put user application and data stream in context  Understand and relate the context of the user, device, location, network, application, virtualization, and resource  Constant optimization requires continuous feedback loop
  • 15. You can’t make decisions without feedback Feedback Decision Collaboration  Relate visibility and content to predetermined business policy  Determine and direct appropriate response
  • 16. You can’t collaborate if you don’t communicate Integration Communication Collaboration  All strategic points of control synchronize, communicate and leverage functions & intelligence  Open, standards-based API for cross product integration and integration with 3rd parties.
