With the increased use of cloud services, organizations are faced with finding the most efficient way to leverage existing IT infrastructure alongside cloud-based compute, storage, and networking resources. This has resulted in the rise of hybrid infrastructure so IT teams can deliver agility and performance with visibility and control.

At RightScale, we’ve implemented some of the world’s largest hybrid IT deployments. In this session, we share implementation approaches, architecture design considerations, and steps for a successful hybrid IT model.

This session covers:

1. How to develop a strategy and framework for a successful path to hybrid IT.
2. How to prioritize applications for public cloud versus on-premises.
3. How to manage multiple compute resource pools through a unified management framework.
4. Implementation and continuous improvement of a hybrid IT environment.

Examples of enterprise hybrid IT implementations include cloudbursting, high availability, and disaster recovery.

  • What is Hybrid IT?
  • What is Hybrid IT? A combination of the following for capacity or capability: Onpremises IT Cloud resources
  • Definitions and Terminology On-Premises IT : Compute, storage, and network resources for a single tenant that are accessed programmatically via an API endpoint. Cloud Architecture: A similar set of multi-tenant resources provided by a cloud vendor with access via an API endpoint. Hybrid IT: An environment that spans your cloud provider as well as one or more on-premises IT environments. Multi-Cloud: An environment that spans two or more separate cloud providers or regions.

  • Hybrid IT Trends
  • Hybrid IT Trends Current Cloud Usage By organizations with a hybrid IT strategy Currently running apps in the cloud Enterprises want multi-cloud/hybrid IT Multi-public 15% Multi-private 15% Hybrid IT 47% Source: RightScale State of the Cloud 2013 625 respondents, conducted Q1 2013 Currently running apps in on-premises environments Currently running apps in hybrid environments
  • Common Use Cases
  • Use Case - Cloudbursting o  An application deployment model in which an application runs in your on-premises environment and bursts to a cloud provider when the demand for computing capacity spikes. o  The advantage of a cloud bursting-enabled deployment is that an organization only pays for extra compute resources when they are needed.
  • Use Cases - Cloudbursting LOAD BALANCERS PUBLIC INTERNET APP SERVERS MASTER DATABASE APP SERVERS SLAVE DATABASE OBJECT STORAGE ON-PREMISES CLOUD
  • Use Cases - Disaster Recovery o  Production environment in on-premises o  DR environment in cloud o  Most common configuration is the “Warm DR” scenario •  Replicating slave in the cloud •  All other servers in non-operational state
  • Use Cases – Disaster Recovery CLOUD CONTROLLER PUBLIC INTERNET LOAD BALANCERS LOAD BALANCERS APP SERVERS APP SERVERS MASTER DATABASE SLAVE DATABASE SLAVE DATABASE OBJECT STORAGE OBJECT STORAGE ON-PREMISES CLOUD
  • Use Cases – Data Residency Requirements Choose AWS whenever possible, but in a limited number of situations, you may have to resort to on-premises storage. On-premises
  • Connecting Your Hybrid IT Environment
  • Connecting Clouds •  AWS Direct Connect –  Network speaks BGP –  Virtual Private Gateway required (if VPC used) –  Low latency (sub-3ms) –  High Bandwidth (1GBit or 10GBit interconnects available) –  Cost is based on port speed (per hour) and data transfer out of AWS (inbound data transfer is free) Source: AWS Direct Connect documentation
  • Connecting Clouds •  VPN Endpoint/Hardware Device VPN Connection –  Available with any combination of environments (AWS regions and onpremises locations) –  Virtual Private Gateway required (if VPC used) –  Latency may be high –  Bandwidth constrained by the characteristics of the network between the environments –  Cost is dependent on outbound data transfer. No additional AWS costs. (configured via API or AWS Console) Internet Hardware Device (Cisco, Juniper, etc.) On-Premises Resources
  • Connecting Clouds •  VPN Endpoint/Software Solution –  Available with any combination of environments –  SSL or IPsec can be used –  Virtual Private Gateway required (if VPC used) –  Latency may be high –  Bandwidth constrained by the characteristics of the network between the environments –  Cost is dependent on outbound data transfer. No additional AWS costs. –  On-premises software solution can be run on VM within the environment or on a physical node. VPN Connection Userimplemented Software VPN Internet OpenSSL, Openswan, pfSense, Raccoon, etc. On-Premises Resources
  • Management of Your Hybrid IT Environment
  • Self-Service o  IT can be the hero, agility with control o  Provide standardized builds with operational excellence o  Leverage all resources
  • Simplicity through Self-Service Service Designers Cloud Team Ops Developers QA End Users Self-Service Portal Auth/SSO RightScale UI publish use Service Catalog RightScale API RightScale Multi-Cloud Platform On-Premises Increase Innovation o  Access to portfolio of hybrid infrastructure o  Standardized technology stacks o  Instant provisioning for innovation o  Visibility and control –  Access controls –  Budget controls –  Audit trails AWS o  Integrate to existing systems
  • Governance o  For every cloud project you know about, there may be 3-5 others you don’t know about* o  Not rebellion, but revenue & productivity o  Security and compliance o  Billing and chargeback Enterprise Business Unit A Tokyo Region z San Diego Region 1 Retail platform w/ PII and PCI *10/11 Forrester Research blog, James Staten “What are Enterprises Really Doing in the Cloud?” Business Unit C Business Unit B Marketing Site Dev QA Chicago Region n Business SaaS Unit 2 Stage Busines Analytics s Unit 1 Prod
  • Standardization through Automation o  Cloud builds are everywhere o  A myriad of machine image & workload o  Configuration language abundance o  Many deployment options o  How can IT support this? “By 2016, more than 70% of large enterprises will choose a heterogeneous IT operations management vendor (rather than an infrastructure vendor) for their cloud management platform to unify cloud investments through a single manager-of-managers style of management and control.”* Donna Scott, Gartner *7/12 Gartner, Inc., Debra Curtis and Donna Scott “Heterogeneity Will Determine the Preferred Type of CMP Vendor”
  • Cost Management o  o  o  o  End-user awareness of spend Cost visibility Chargeback capability Cloud Analytics for optimization
  • Cost Management through Cloud Analytics o  Visualize all of your IT costs o  Forecast future spend o  Optimize your spend and reduce waste
