Dynamic Infrastructure

  1. 1. Dynamic Infrastructure A foundation for emerging data center models LORI MACVITTIE TECHNICAL MARKETING MANAGER F5 Networks
  2. 2. FAILURE OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND DATA CENTER ARCHITECTURES TO EVOLVE WILL LEAD TO DECAY AND INCREASINGLY INEFFICIENT IT
  3. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 12. DYNAMIC (COLLABORATIVE) INFRASTRUCTURE
  13. 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. 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. 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. 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.

An Evolutionary Process INFRASTRUCTURE • Too much information to manage • Rapid and constant change • Need to know Problem • Desire / need to react • Integration • Visibility • Decision making Adaptation • Context aware • Automation of reaction begins • Provisioning • Management Solution • Monitoring
