2011 infra challanges for oracle v1

  1. 1. ;Infrastructure Challenges Pini Cohen EVP pini@stki.info Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic
  2. 2. Agenda• Major trends: – Public Cloud – Fabric Computing – Near Field Communications and Video• Issues raised in STKI Round Table – Performance – Downtime – Operations – Time to Market• STKI ratios• Appliances• Summary Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI 2 Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic
  3. 3. Public Cloud• With Public Cloud “2 people business” can have: – ERP – CRM 196,802 soho ( up to 9 – Manufacturing Software companies employees) – VOIP• Soon they will have applications that corporate IT does not have!

  5. 5. Fabric Computing• The Goal is to create a very flexible, elastic infrastructure on which a variety of applications can be easily provisioned and efficiently operated.• Interconnected nodes that look like a weave or a fabric when viewed collectively from a distance• The main advantages of fabrics are that a massive concurrent processing combined with a huge, tightly-coupled address space makes it possible to solve huge computing problems and that they are both scalable and able to be dynamically reconfigured• Challenges include a non-linearly degrading performance curve, whereby adding resources does not linearly increase performance which is a common problem with parallel computing and maintaining security.

  11. 11. Performance• It took as ages to find out that unknown insignificant parameter caused serious performance issues• We had some performance issues so we upgraded the storage. But now we found out that the bottleneck was networking. Than it were the servers… Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI 11 Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic
  12. 12. Downtime• We had one patch causing problems with one infrastructure component. Then, after fixing this problem, it started to harm the application…• Root cause analysis of production errors is a nightmare. The general Enterprise System Management environment is not capable to lead us to the right place of error.• We waited 3 hours for the storage vendor support then another 4 hours to the network person but then the storage support personal had to leave….

  13. 13. Operations• Dependencies between infrastructure components are so complicated. Updating one system component takes ages until getting certification from all other related components• Professional services from the different technology domains is huge cost• It’s a lot of fun to go through 4 management consoles each with a different GUI and methodology• It took us ages to automate adding new server to the application server cluster. Then we had to do it almost again since the server OS changed some API’s Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI 13 Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic
  14. 14. Time to market and efficiency• We have to show efficiency all over the road – reduce development, testing and release cycles• We are spending too much time on “none- core” issues• We are not efficient enough• Integration problems between components caused serious delay in deadlines Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI 14 Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic
  15. 15. Server Ratios - Windows• Number of Windows Servers (logical ) per System member Per FTE All Win Prod Win Servers Servers 25 percentile 92servers 47servers Median 122 Servers 67 Servers 75 percentile 200 Servers 100 servers• Percent of Production Windows server from all Windows servers Percent of prod servers 25 percentile 50% Median 62% 75 percentile 75% Source: STKI Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic
  16. 16. NOC, Operators Ratio• Number of Open production servers per NOC person: Per FTE Unix Linux Servers 25 percentile 15servers Median 46 Servers 75 percentile 80 Servers• Large variety since there is large variety in NOC operations• MF, AS/400, OpenVMS – not included in the count but add lots of load Source: STKI Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic

  18. 18. The role of System is changing• The “System” is changing: – From HW and OS centric that is focused on the particular platform – To integration between systems, connectors and XML• More “business process” oriented – need to know what the application is doing and what is the business process even before installing a patch Pini Cohen’s work Copyright 2011 @STKI 18 Do not remove source or attribution from any graphic or portion of graphic
