With the increased use of cloud services, organizations are faced with finding the most efficient way to use existing IT infrastructure alongside cloud-based compute, storage and networking resources. This has resulted in the rise of hybrid IT whereby companies leverage both on-premises and cloud resources to drive increased agility, stability and accessibility.

    • IntroducAons   Brian  Adler   Senior  Services  Architect   RightScale     Claudio  Gen/le   Cloud  SoluAons  Engineer   RightScale     Miles  Ward   Senior  Manager   SoluAons  Architecture   AWS    
    • What  We’ll  Cover  Today   •  Overview   •  What’s  your  strategy?   •  Typical  use  cases     •  Design  consideraAons   •  Real-­‐world  experiences  with  Hybrid  IT   •  Q&A  session  
    • Overview  
    • Four  Tracks  for  Business  Value   Increase Enterprise Agility Drive Operational Efficiencies Expand Markets & Capabilities Increase Investment Flexibility Faster Time to Market Accelerate Innovation Fail (or Succeed) Fast Cut Infrastructure Costs Reduce Overprovisioning Increase IT Efficiency New Geographies New Capabilities Web-Scale Applications CapEX to OpEX Reduce sunk costs Reduce lock-in
    • Why  Hybrid  IT?   Operate anywhere Public Public Private Hosted Future-proof cloud strategy Maintain vendor leverage Access unique capabilities Leverage existing investments Create resilient architectures Optimize costs Multi-cloud happens
    • RightScale’s  View  of  Cloud  Management   A  framework  of  tools  to  solve  cloud  challenges  and  increase  your  ability  to  enjoy  cloud  benefits     ! •  Consistency  and  reliability  of  shared,  commodity  resources   •  Secure  access  to  a  variety  of  remote,  networked  resources   •  Self-service  accessibility  of  an  approved  configuraAon  menu   •  ElasAc,  instantaneous  scalability  driven  by  automation! •  Usage  transparency  and  optimization!
    • The  Core  Cloud  Management  Toolset   Resource  management   •  Compute,  network,  storage   Governance   •  Policy  management   •  IdenAty  and  access  management   •  Usage  and  cost  management   Configura/on   •  ConfiguraAon  management   •  Service  catalog   •  License  management   Automa/on   •  Resource  monitoring  and  alerAng   •  Automated  scaling  and  deployment  orchestraAon  
    • What’s  Your  Strategy?  
    • EvaluaAng  ApplicaAons  for  the  Cloud   Business  impact   •  Should  we  put  this  app  on  the  cloud?   •  What  benefits  will  we  get?   Technical  requirements   •  Can  we  put  this  app  on  the  cloud?   •  How  much  will  migraAon  or  build  out  cost?   Choose  the  quick  wins!   •  High  business  impact   •  Appropriate  technical  requirements   •  Start  greenfield  and  worry  about  migraAon  later

    • Typical  Use  Cases  
    • Use Cases Cloudburs/ng   •  An  applicaAon  deployment  model  in  which  an  applicaAon  runs  in  your  on-­‐premises   environment  and  bursts  to  a  cloud  provider  when  the  demand  for  compuAng  capacity   spikes.     •  The  advantage  of  a  cloud  bursAng-­‐enabled  deployment  is  that  an  organizaAon  only  pays   for  extra  compute  resources  when  they  are  needed.   Considera/ons:   •  Control  –  public  Internet  traversal  may  be  required   •  Latency  –  traversal  of  public  Internet  involves  the  Great  Unknown   •  Cost  –  bandwidth  charges  for  public  Internet  traversal   •  Complexity  –  numerous  opAons  exist  for  configuraAon  of  a  hybrid  secure   environment  
    • Hybrid  IT    /  CloudbursAng   ON-PREMISES CLOUD LOAD BALANCERS APP SERVERS MASTER DATABASE SLAVE DATABASE OBJECT STORAGE APP SERVERS PUBLIC INTERNET CloudbursAng  
    • Use  Cases   Disaster  Recovery  (DR)   •  ProducAon  environment  in  on-­‐premises  environment   •  DR  environment  in  the  cloud   •  Most  common  configuraAon  is  the  “Warm  DR”  scenario   •  ReplicaAng  slave  in  the  cloud   •  All  other  servers  in  non-­‐operaAonal  state  
    • Use  Cases   On-Premises Public Cloud or On- Premises Resources Disaster  Recovery  (DR)  
    • Use  Cases   Self-­‐Service  IT  Portal  (“IT  Vending  Machine”)   •  Users  select  one  of  several  pre-­‐configured  tech  stacks   •  Isolated  Test/Dev  environments  
    • Design  ConsideraAons  
    • On-­‐Premises  IT:  Key  ConsideraAons   Cost   •  Sunk  investment  in  physical  infrastructure  –  try  to  maximize  the  uAlizaAon  of   this  CAPEX   Workload  and  Infrastructure  Interac/on   •  ApplicaAons  have  different  resource  needs   •  Choose  the  right  fit  for  your  applicaAon  and  your  infrastructure   Compliance     •  Data  may  be  contained  on-­‐premises  for  compliance  needs  or  requirements.  
    • On-­‐Premises  IT:  Key  ConsideraAons   Latency   •  Consumers  of  the  on-­‐premises  resources  are  generally  “closer”  to  the   environment,  which  reduces  latency   User  Experience   •  Related  to  latency,  end  user  experience  is  enhanced  due  to  proximity  to   resources.  
    • Management  ConsideraAons   Elevates: •  Configurations •  APIs •  Automation behaviors •  Access control •  Billing and governance Users and systems RightScale – Multi Infrastructure Resource Management Common  API  and  UI   AWS On-Premises OS Hardware Hypervisor Services APIs   APIs  
    • Design Considerations Location of Physical Hardware •  On-premises •  Availability considerations (power, cooling, networking, etc.) •  Hosted or Co-location facility •  Accessibility of hardware for additions and/or modification •  Latency to end users •  Security
    • Design  ConsideraAons   Availability and Redundancy Configuration •  Easiest configuration (single zone, single region, single API endpoint) does not promote high availability •  High Availability of resources requires more complex configurations
    • Design  ConsideraAons/OpAons   Simple  ConfiguraAon   No  HA  or  Redundancy   HA  ConfiguraAon  
    • Design  ConsideraAons   Intended  Workloads  and  Use  Cases     •  Does  the  applicaAon  require  high  availability  or  is  it  tolerant  of  interrupAons  of  service?   •  Does  the  applicaAon  require  (or  greatly  benefit  from)  specialized  hardware  or  network   configuraAons?

    • Q&A   •  How  does  applicaAon  management  work  in  hybrid  clouds  where  the   private  cloud  workload  may  burst  to  AWS?  What  are  good  pracAces  for   app  data  sync  when  the  app  is  running  in  private  cloud  and  AWS?   •  Stateless  applicaAon  servers  are  best-­‐suited  to  cloudbursAng.   •  If  data  synchronizaAon  is  required:   •  Highly-­‐available  shared  storage  (such  as  S3)   •  High-­‐performance  shared  filesystem  (like  GlusterFS  or  OpenAFS)   •  Implement  a  low-­‐latency  secure  link  (such  as  DirectConnect).  
    • Q&A   •  Is  there  a  published  checklist  somewhere  of  what  all  needs  to  be  validated   prior  to  deciding  to  move  a  system  (Exchange,  AD,  etc.)      to  the  cloud?    And  is   there  a  checklist  for  what  all  needs  to  take  place  when  you  actually  decide  to   move  something?    Do  you  have  any  whitepapers  to  show  how  customers  have   been  impacted  posiAvely  by  moving  on  prem  systems  to  cloud  that  most   customers  have  (i.e.  Exchange,  Email,  etc.)    How  have  they  saved  money,   provided  beler  performance,  etc.),  and  made  their  lives  easier?   •  This  is  a  common  quesAon  we  get  at  RightScale  -­‐-­‐  so  common  that  we   developed  a  consulAng  product  offering  around  for  this  exact  need   (CloudSight).    This  is  tough  to  answer  in  general  terms,  but  would  be  a  great   topic  for  our  in-­‐person  events.

    • Q&A   •  If  we  save  data  to  the  AWS  cloud,  does  the  key  reside  on  the  cloud  or  with   us  exclusively?  (for  security  reasons,  we  would  prefer  not  to  have  the  key   reside  on  the  cloud  as  it  does  on  some  systems)
