    • Intelligent Networking forCloud ComputingAl MyersVP – Network Application Engineering
    • Session overviewBusinesses are looking to the cloud to support theirapplication and storage needs, but relying on the Internet foraccess creates security and predictability issues. Thenetwork often gets overlooked amid the talk about servers,storage and software-as-a-service, but it is critical tomanage and control your user’s experiences. In thissession, tw telecom will discuss the importance of buildingthe right network foundation of visibility, flexibility andcontrol, which are key to a successful enterprise cloudstrategy.2
    • tw telecom’s Extensive Reach National Reach • ~ 28,000 fiber miles • Nearly 16,000 fiber connected buildings • 42,000 buildings < 1Mile from our fiber network • Extensive Ethernet Reach • Nearly 100 Ethernet NNI’s in place • Reach to over 160,000 enterprise buildings • Broad Metro Reach • Nearly 2,700 connected LSOs • Including tw telecom and partners, via UNE and Finished Ethernet • Over 400 connected 3rd Party Data Centers, Carrier Hotels, tw telecom colocation facilities 3 PLEASE NOTE: this map is a marketing collateral document.

    • Trends, Applications and Strategies5
    • Computing Transition6
    • Cloud Computing Defined When you hear the term “cloud- computing,” what definition first comes to mind?• 47% Fundamental change in how technology services are provided• 19% A tool, if delivered properly, that can provide instant value to my company• 9% A tool that might work for another company• 13% Another buzzword – all hype• 12% Unsure Source – 2009 Hosting.com Customer Survey • Commoditization, Internet Delivery, Virtualization, Grid Computing, SOA, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, XaaS Web 2.0, Storage are all components • Technology advancements will fundamentally change the economics around how applications are supported and housed beyond a single server 7
    • Adoption Stage ~20% of Enteprises have adopted Cloud in some way Source: VMware - March, 20118
    • Drivers of Cloud Adoption Goals for Cloud: -Faster time to market -Reduce capital investment -Just In Time IT -Address critical applications cost effectively (e.g. Disaster Recovery)Source: VMware - March, 20119
    • Case Study: USDA Cloud E-Mail USDA Cloud-Based E-Mail Contract• Total Cost of Ownership Forecasted Annual Costs $ Millions analysis $20 • Internally owned and managed $18 infrastructure $16 • Outsourced cloud strategy $14 $18.72M• Mitigation of: $12 • Infrastructure (servers, storage) $10 • Costly software testing and $8 upgrade process $6 $11.52M • IT HR resources $4 $2• 40% Cost advantage through $0 Assumptions: Cloud solution 120,000 USDA users Status Quo: $13/user/mo Cloud Based: $8/user/mo10 Source: Bloomberg Government Briefing, March 2011
    • Application Enablement Strategies11
    • Metro Ethernet Growth• Metro Ethernet services expected to see exponential growth over next 5 years• Internet access is primary application• Video, Telepresence consumes 15 to 20 Mb per location• Data Center strategies require 1 to 10 Gig Ethernet12
    • Ethernet Bandwidth Overtakes Legacy • Ethernet services only available in past decade • Adoption of 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit services • Expect continued growth of 25% CAGR over next 5 years • Fueled by data center and Cloud services13
    • 100 Gig• 10 Gigabit Ethernet has growing position in WAN strategies• Storage doubling every 18 months to 2 years• Data Center strategies starting to address 100 Gigabit Ethernet "When 100G Ethernet arrives, itll be the next big thing• Virtualization infrastructure and the most important, because it will last to at least 2025, solving traffic problems for a very long time." demands continuing Michael Howard, Infonetics Research scalability14
    • Class of Service Strategies15
    • Ethernet Service Capabilities • Point-to-Point, Non-Oversubscribed Service • Protected switching (sub 50ms recovery) E-Line • Low latency, data center applications to 10 Gig • Enterprise customer focusMetro Services • Point-to-Multipoint, “Hub and Spoke” Service to 10 Gig • Protected switching (typically sub 50ms recovery) EVPL • Aggregation applications, with optional CoS per end-link • Carrier customer focus • Multipoint Meshed Service with CoS options • Protected switching (typically sub 50ms recovery) E-LAN • Distributed enterprise applications connectivity to 10 Gig • Enterprise customer focus • Point-to-Point, Dedicated or Oversubscribed ServiceNational Services National • Protected switching (sub 50ms recovery) E-Line • Low latency, data center applications • Enterprise customer focus • Multipoint Meshed Service to 1 Gig Extended Native • Protected switching (IP re-routing) available LAN (VPLS) • VPLS solution with VLAN tunnelling options • Enterprise customer focus 16
    • Ethernet - Changing The Conversation • Internet Access Access • Connecting the “Tall Shineys” • Reach Connected • Branch to Data Center Connectivity Enterprise • Enabling UC Strategies Convergence • Voice, Video - Collaboration • Data center applications Virtualization transparency • Intelligent Traffic Management17
    • Intelligent Networking Strategies18
    • Bridging the Gap19
    • Security Is Critical Microsoft - “Economics of Cloud”, November 201020
    • Cloud – Who Do You Trust?• Private or Internal Clouds are preferred Trusted Cloud Providers overwhelmingly by the enterprise (67%)• Hybrid Clouds – shared infrastructure becoming more accepted (30%)• Fully managed and Federation cloud solutions make balance of choice Source: Yankee Group, “2010 FastView Survey: Cloud Computing Grows Up” 21
    • Evolution Of The Cloud Best Of Applications Walled Breed Access and Garden Applications Enablement22
    • Elements of Cloud Enablement Visibility Visibility Ability to see network performance information in granularity Dynamic Bandwidth Ability to scale bandwidth on- Dynamic demand to meet application Bandwidth requirements Dynamic Connections Ability to establish secure Dynamic connectivity to an applications Connections environment on-demand23
    • What An Intelligent Network Enables Traffic/Demands Types of Applications Phase 1 Instant PortalEnhanced Management Visibility Telepresence Phase 2* Dynamic Capacity Storage Phase 3* ERP Applications Aware Financial Networking Consumer Traffic24 * Planned future service offerings
    • Performance ManagementCorp HQ Data Center Metro Long Haul, POP-to-POP Metro Segment Segment Segment • POP-to-POP (no local access) information • Typically displays network averages • No visibility to application traffic or flow • No capabilities into “The Cloud” 25
    • Enhanced Performance Management Long Haul, POP-to-POP Metro Segment Metro Segment Segment • Real time presentation of data elements • Segmented analysis monitoring each network element • Ability to augment on-premise/CPE solution • Network performance data including “The Cloud” data center26
    • Enhanced Management Click to Export Data Choose Class of Service Key Metrics by Location, Sort Ascending or Sample Summary Report Descending Click to View Site Click to viewChoose Time Frame Specific Charts POP to POP Metrics27
    • Enhanced ManagementApplication Example: Legal VerticalA key application is the ability to video conference between sites to conduct live depositions.They have had performance issues with their video application at some sites.Enhanced Management will allow them to see specific performance metrics for those specific sites in question to help them troubleshoot, make adjustments and improve their video performance.28
    • Enhanced ManagementApplication Example: Insurance VerticalA key application is the ability to assess the performanceimpact to their network as code upgrades and patches toexisting applications are rolled out.While rolling out a new release of A.I.M. an insuranceindustry application, Enhanced Management allows themto see the location by location impact to their networkperformance and to other applications traffic as softwareupgrades are implemented.This gives them the data needed to make adjustments tobandwidth and class of service settings to achieve the bestpossible user experience.29
