Cloud computing comes in many varieties. Have you been wondering about the real state of adoption? Or how to plan your migration? This presentation will use findings from a recent CDW Tracking Poll on Cloud Computing to showcase current cloud adoption and challenges. Issues such as: security of data, lack of formal adoption strategies and the percent of IT budgets actually being allocated to the cloud will be addressed.

Challenges aside, this session will also review the benefits of moving to the cloud along with “5 Steps to Help You Get Started.” Attendees at this event will also receive a copy of the CDW 2011 Cloud Computing Tracking Poll and Cloud Computing Reference Guide “Making The Cloud Achievable.” If you are planning to attend this session, please stop by the CDW Vendor Page and let us know if there are any specific questions you’d like for us to address.

  • Making Sense of the Cloud – Definition, Models, Industry Trends
  • Let’s dive right into Cloud Models which consist of Deployment and Service Models.In a Private Cloud model, which is usually On Premise, or in a customer’s data center, the only typical service model used is Infrastructure as a Service or IaaS. Examples include VCE vBlock, HP CloudSystem etc.A Public Cloud model however, is always Off Premise; in other words, this is not located in a customer’s data center. This typically has three service models, which includes IaaS, Software as a Service or SaaS and finally, Platform as a Service or PaaS. Examples include Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps etc.Whether a customer chooses a Private, Public or a mix of the two, which we often call Hybrid, the goal is the same: to run IT as a Service.
  • A cable has both capital and operational costs. Capital – Cable costs 100 dollars. It hooks into a NIC and an HBA which cost money. The SAN and Fiber switch must be sized to accommodate for the NIC and the HBA. Both of these are part of a larger, separate network. Operational – The cable draws 1.5 watts of power. The HBA’s, NICS, switches, all need to be powered and cooled. Additionally, on either end of the cable are people who need to do things to make it work. The network team and storage team need to have separate firmware, each team has separate requirements for provisioning.Take the cable and multiply it by how many you have…. Is it 100’s? 1000’s?

  • 7. MAKING SENSE OF THE CLOUD TRACKING POLL: KEY FINDINGS • While many organizations are using cloud-based applications, few have a formal adoption strategy for cloud computing: • 84% of IT managers say their organization employs at least one cloud application • However, when asked the status of cloud computing within their organization, just over a quarter defined themselves as ―cloud users*,‖ saying they were implementing or maintaining the technology • Only 38% say their organization has a written strategic plan for cloud adoption • Security of data in the cloud is a top concern, but not addressed consistently: • Both cloud users* and non-users** say security concerns are holding them back from further adoption • Even cloud users* are missing key opportunities to secure data in the cloud • IT managers anticipate spending no more than one-third of their IT budget on cloud computing within five years: • Current cloud users* predict one-third (34%) of their 2016 IT budget will be spent on cloud resources and applications • Five years from now, those not currently in the cloud project they will spend slightly more than one quarter (28%) of their budget on cloud DOWNLOAD THE COMPLETE REPORT: CDW.COM/CLOUDCDW — PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL.

THINGS TO CONSIDER • IT Governance is mandatory, ensuring cloud efficiency and stability • Building Your Own Cloud may be: » More time-consuming » Heavy on scripting requirements » Costlier than an automated, integrated, validated solution • Reality Check: » Building a private cloud amounts to becoming a cloud provider » Competitors with private clouds will be able to deliver IT services fasterCDW — PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL.
