Multi-Cloud Roadmap: Architecting Hybrid Environments for Maximum Results
Peder Ulander - CMO, Cloud.com

Many companies move to the cloud before they fully understand the complexities of a solid implementation strategy. Public and private clouds each have their benefits and limitations, and it's imperative to develop a clear roadmap for success that incorporates a best-practices reference architecture. In this session, we'll share how to architect a hybrid cloud environment as part of your overall cloud strategy, how to achieve multi-cloud interoperability, and how to proactively plan to survive cloud infrastructure outages.

  • Zynga started out with a dedicated hosted IT infrastructure, but its business growth quickly outpaced its ability to add infrastructure. It moved to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to accommodate the rapid scale demands in the vertical growth phase of the company. Having survived this initial growth phase, and gained a better understanding of workloads in the process, the company opted to build its own internal cloud to compliment its AWS footprint. Part of the impetus behind this move was a desire to reverse some of the capex versus opex tradeoffs that it made in earlier stages of the company. This is an interesting business lifecycle decision and cloud adoption consideration. Zynga realized early on that it couldn’t afford the capital outlay burden associated with building its own infrastrcuture at the scale required to host its business. However, as the business has grown, it now makes sense from a financial perspective to own some of the equipment and the associated benefits of the higher depreciation writeoffs that come with it. At the same time the reduced operating expense, from lower public cloud reliance, improve the company’s operating margin profile. Zynga's private cloud, called zCloud internally, is essentially a commodity cloud based on AWS design principles and using XenServer at the core. Zynga manages its clouds, both AWS and zCloud, through a single pane of glass provided by RightScale. This capability was integral to Zynga’s deployment. Zynga shared some impressive statistics around its vCloud build. The entire project went from concept to production in <6 months. Zynga, in concert with RightScale, can now fully provision >1,000 physical servers in 24 hours. From a growth standpoint, between Jan ’09 and Jan ’11 it has a 75x’ed server count.

    • Originally 100% on Amazon EC2, Zynga recently built zCloud - their own private cloud
      • Manages both zCloud and AWS workloads through RightScale
      • zCloud runs predictable workloads; mature games or prototypes
      • zCloud has 2 availability zones with data centers on the east and west coasts of the US
    • zCloud went from concept to product in <6 months by using CloudStack and RightScale
    • Already in deployment with over one thousand physical nodes, it takes 22 minutes to provision and add 100 hosts to their cloud.
