  • IMPLICATIONS: IT departments must juggle multiple priorities with limited resourcesLegal IT departments face a number challenges in service delivery:Legal IT departments must support 24x7 global operations Ensure mission-critical availability, reliability, performance and uptime for critical IT resources globally, including seamless and secure remote access to corporate IT assetsLaw firms face new requirements to handle and provide access too massive data repositories in a secure and reliable mannerLaw firms face new pressures to reduce overall IT spending while shifting historical CAPEX expenditures to incremental OPEX expendituresEliminate CAPEX expenditure related to data center spending. Shift to OPEX through leasing commercial data center spaceReduce CAPEX expenditures on Hardware and Software for On-Premise deployments by leveraging SaaSCloud-based infrastructures and deployments are introducing a new dynamic to legal IT services and deployments (on-demand, utility compute models, with associated incremental OPEX expenditures)Yet, while facing all of these imperatives, IT departments must still find resources to innovate for advantage in a highly competitive market. As a result, IT departments need to look for strategies that will provide across-the-board increases in efficiency, flexibility and time to market, instead of deploying point solutions to solve specific challenges.
  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology has issued an “official” definition of cloud computing. How does this compare with your definition?
  • With low up-front costs, public clouds can be very appealing – especially to developers
  • Cloud does have drawbacks. In particular, it can be very expensive if you find yourself using a lot of it.
  • As illustrated in the previous slide, base costs will be significantly less using private capacity.
  • Redapt is a data center architecture and solutions provider… Supported RightScale CloudsRedapt can offer:Hardware procurement and integration for private/hybrid cloud infrastructures, and/orManaged private/hybrid cloud services
  • Jewel #3: Customer ecosystemsFertile environment for a diverse and interconnected customer baseFocused on 5 industry verticals:Networks: 26% of revenues, the foundation, peer, sell bandwidthContent & Digital Media: 21%, cost, user experienceFinancial Services: 20%, Global information and liquidity hubsCloud Computing: 24%, public, private, hybrid deploymentsEnterprises: 9%, mission critical, latency dependent appsWe possess the know how and critical mass of customers within key verticals to foster the development of interconnected ecosystems
  • Key message: It’s not about one data center. It’s about connected data centers around the globe.We are everywhere you need to be and moving into markets you will need.We have 90+ Data centers worldwide covering 31 strategic global metro markets.By working with one global partner, you simplify vendor management, billing, scoping, etc. We listen to our customers / and use third party data, e.g TeleGeography to pin point new sites where *you* need to be. Supporting message – Global platform for simplicityVendor management, billing, scoping, etc. are simplified when working with one global partnerSupporting message – The right networks in the right places for performanceEquinix has the bandwidth choice and is strategically located to optimize performance Supporting message – Expansion when you need itReduce the geographic diversity demanded of your IT team by leveraging Equinix as a supporting resourceEquinix’s consistent global infrastructure simplifies your growth pathEquinix has teams around the globe to provide on-site support to address issues and solve implementation challenges
  • If the costs of public cloud are getting too burdensome, these are two things you can do to reign them in.
  • This compares Data Transfer Out costs from AWS using Direct Connect (http://aws.amazon.com/directconnect) versus connecting over the Internet. Note: Internet Connect costs do not include network circuit charges, which will add significantly to the total cost.
