  • 1. The future is hybridand openZarafa SummercampKerkrade, 20.6.2012Peter H. Ganten<>
  • 2. Peter H. GantenFounder and CEO of UniventionChairman of the Open Source Business Alliance e.V. (
  • 3. The promises of cloud computing Industrialization of IT IT becomes a commodity (like electric energy, CapEx -> OpEx) More professionality, standardization and security More flexibilty and agility Less dependence on know-how or specific persons Less costsPorcelaine manufactory of saxony, 18th century. Steel industries of the Krupp familiy in Rhbeinhausen ca. 1900
  • 4. Who are the drivers?Software vendors Reduction of development and support costs Easier sales and marketing Continuous profit (software = service)End users and user organizations News application can be tested, procured and used instantly CapEx -> OpEx Availability, security, cost controlCloud service providers / Cloud Service Brokers …
  • 5. Why isnt cloudcomputing adoptedfaster?
  • 6. End user organizations ...already do adopt cloud computingThe first applications moved to the cloud are: Non-strategic applications, used only by a few persons / departments communication, E-mail, Groupware, CRM etc.But the core infrastructure (shares, print-services, IAM, network management) will remain on-premises for a long timeChallange: Integration of local and cloud-based IT-Management (especially IAM)
  • 7. To their customers, partners and suppliers, enterprises have to take responsibility. Thisresponsibilty cant be delegated. The is a duty to take care.
  • 8. ComplianceWhich laws do apply when we use cloud computing?How can we ensure, that we comply with those laws?Exactly when have we been careful enough?SOX / Euro-SOXPatriot ActIn germany: GDPdUBasel II / Basel III… Source: Deutscher Bundestag
  • 9. Security and protection of dataHow can we guarantee security and integration of dataWhich rules apply for personal data in the cloudCan we audit the systems in use or are they audited by a trusted third partyEncryptionSecurityBackdoorsCode qualityPatch management Source: BSI
  • 10. PortabilityCan we transfer data, business logik and programs to a different provider?Can we even move it back to our own data centerEven in part?Vender dependence and lockinCost effectivenessRisk of vendor unavailability
  • 11. InteroperabilityHow can applications access data and program functions, even when they are hosted at a different cloud service providerWhich interfaces exist?How are they documented?Under which conditions may the be used?Are reference implementations available? Quelle: IBM
  • 12. How open sourcehelps
  • 13. Open source software in the cloudOpen source software ensures Comprehensible and tracable processes (auditability) Documented data formats (at least through the source code) Possibility to run the code everywhere Possibility to customize and enhace applicationsPrerequisite: Source code available to any part of the chain (GPL vs. AGPL- „Cloud-GPL“) Open Cloud Initiative (OCI)
  • 14. Open source becomes a cloud acceleratorFull auditability even for third parties (helps with compliance, data security and protection of personal data)High degree of portabilityMakes interoperability possibleFurthermore: More flexibilty Potentialy more innovation Often lower costs
  • 15. Business advantage open sourceOpen Source becomes a business advantage for CSPs, because they can better address the most pressing challanges For ISVs because availabilty in many clouds and on-premises is easier achieved Each part of the chain can avoid vendor-lockins VARs can offer individualized solutionsThe key is More trust, more competition,more innovations, more integrationand more efficiency
  • 16. The benefits of being proprietary declineCloud computing offers more and better ways to differentiate than featuresof the code itself service level scalability availability customer service price compliance with EU and national law and regulationsThe drawbacks of open source software can easier be controlled(compexity, vendor responsibility, assesment of open source projects, ...)
  • 17. Integration andInteroperability stillhas to be delivered inreal
  • 18. Cloud platform Univention Corporate ServerWith Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 3.0 we provide a well definied open source platformUsable in many clouds and on-premisesComes with integrated identity- and access managementcomplete web-based Management (Ajax, Rest-full)Scriptable, enhanceble, customizableWith roadmap, maintenance and support100% open sourceFor ISVs, CSPs and VARs
  • 19. Operating and management system for IaaS, PaaS and SaaSEnables Hybrid Cloud scenarios Cloud service provider ASelective replication of identity and infrastructure information across multiple locationsProvides a trust and security contextEnterprise operating platform for additional Cloud service applications and services provider CStandardized interfaces and specified APIIntuitive web-based administration and management interface Customer On-premises
  • 20. Ecosystem and technology partners (excerpt)
  • 21. Active Directory in UCSSamba 4 integration provides real Active Directory implementation (including kerberos, LDAP, group policies …)Easy manageable Univention Management Console Microsoft provided toolsReady-to-use, tested and scalable setupIntegrates Active Directory services with Linux-based services virtualization Groupware, collaboration, ECM File-, print- and other infrastructure services Existing Active Directory setupsActive Directory for the cloud
  • 22. UCS Active Directory Connector Bi-directional, selective synchronization of User accounts groups passwords Other LDAP objectsInteroperability and integration – use Windows and Linux infrastructure jointly togetherMigration – migrate accounts and groups from Active Directory to UCS and vice versa
  • 23. SATcloud projectIntegrate cloud based applications and services into classical management of trust contexts („domains“)Integration of SAML / oAuth and cloud provisioning into domain management (Microsoft Active Directory and UCS)Easy management of selective replicationPossbly even combined with multi-master-supportRole-based administrationDevelopment of a description language for directory views and selective cloud replicationJoint project with the german research center for artificial intelligenceFunded by the german federal ministry of economics and technology
  • 24. Open Source Integration Initiative
  • 25. Together with ZarafaBest integration of open source infrastructure stacks with Microsoft Windows equipment (Windows Client, Outlook)Excellent support for Active DirectoryUnique solutions for hybrid setupsEasy deployment scenzarios for cloud and on-premises setupWe provide 100% open source softwareNew: Very easy to setup Zarafa Virtual Machine Image for testing and production
