  5. 5. Intro: Evolution of the Datacentre 1990's – CLIENT-­‐SERVER COMPUTE NOW – UTILITY COMPUTING IN THE CLOUD 2000's – THE “BIG” DATACENTRE ON-­‐PREMISE DATA CENTRE PC TERMINAL, OWNED BY BUSINESS CLOUD COMPUTING THE COMMODITY x86 COMPUTE CLOUD COMPUTE/STORAGE SILOS INTERNET OR WAN BYOD, MULTIPLE DEVICES PER USER, MOBILE • SILOED INFRASTRUCTURE • RIGID, NO FLEXIBILTY • EXPENSIVE, UP-­‐FRONT INVESTMENT • NOT SCALABLE • COMPLEX TO MANAGE • FIXED TO ONE LOCATION DATACENTRE WAN MULTIPLE DEVICES, CORP OWNED BLADE COMPUTE SAN / NAS STORAGE • CENTRALISED INFRASTRUCTURE • VIRTUALISED FOR INCREASED FLEXIBILITY • EXPENSIVE, UP-­‐FRONT INVESTMENT • LIMITED, EXPENSIVE SCALABILITY • COMPLEX TO MANAGE • REMOTE WORKING PREVALENT OBJECT STORAGE • WEB-­‐SCALE INFRASTRUCTURE • SOFTWARE DEFINED FOR COMPLETE FLEXIBILITY • OPEX BASED UTILITY COMPUTE, NO CAPEX • UNLIMITED, HYPER-­‐SCALABILITY • MANAGE FROM A SIMPLE, SINGLE PANE OF GLASS • MULTIPLE DEVICES, MULTIPLE LOCATIONS
  6. 6. In the Cloud, the Possibilities are Endless What if you could…. • Test workloads in the cloud before committing CAPEX to hardware that might not be suitable? • Store your data in the cloud without being limited by WAN performance? • Access cloud data through standard NAS protocols so you don’t need to re-write applications? • Move away from a legacy NAS environment and to a next-generation hybrid cloud environment – without the pain usually associated with such a move? • Have all the functionality of a physical DR site without the cost?
  7. 7. Case study: Centralised Cloud Storage Customer Requirement: • Store all technical data centrally for users at offices around the world to allow for collaboration and centralised QA • Reduce NAS costs and NAS sprawl • Delivering high performance throughput to users of seismic applications at remote offices • Secure data • Provide a WW Global Namespace to all users for ease of access and administration
  8. 8. Solution: Eurotech Cloud NAS PREMIER LONDON EUROTECH DATA CENTRE Avere 3 Node FXT with CloudNAS 100Mbps Router Internet Core Filer (NetApp) NFS enabled 100Mbps Avere 2 Node FXT with NAS Optimisation 100Mbps Data path Internet or DirectConnect Solution Benefits: • Centralise WW data in the cloud with no compromise on performance • Reduce NAS costs & sprawl • Storage becomes OPEX-only
  9. 9. Case study: Low cost test and demo Customer Requirement: • Provide a complete test/demo environment for their software • Must include high capacity compute nodes (32GB+ RAM each; minimum 4 cores), block and object storage and networking • Deliver a low cost solution that fits their usage model (only in use a few hours a day) • Must be rapidly scalable to demonstrate software’s scale-out capability i.e. min 2 node clusters, growing up to 8+ nodes
  10. 10. Solution: EC2/VPC/S3 cloud environ 1. Data ingested into GridBank from source based on policy CUSTOMER PRIVATE NETWORK AMAZON VPC EC2 COMPUTE CLOUD EBS 2. Data indexed, deduped, compressed & encrypted 3. Encrypted objects stored either in Amazon S3-­‐based storage pools or in EBS-­‐based storage pools Internet or WAN SAN SharePoint Exchange File Active Directory S3 OBJECT STORE Solution Benefits: • No CAPEX required to deliver a fully cloud-based test platform • Turn test platform on when you need it, off when you don’t
