  17. 17. Turns Out There is Massive Complexity
  18. 18. Lower Costs with AWS Up-Front and Increase Savings as Your Usage Grows Source: IDC Whitepaper, sponsored by Amazon, “The Business Value of Amazon Web Services Accelerates Over Time.” July 2012 1 “Average of 400 servers replaced per customer” Replace up-front capital expense with low variable cost 2 42 Price Reductions Economies of scale allow us to continually lower costs 3 Pricing model choice to support variable & stable workloads 4 Save more money as you grow bigger On-demand Reserved Spot Tiered Pricing Volume Discounts Custom Pricing
  19. 19. AWS Helps Government Cut Costs “We are in the process of putting most of our public-facing data in an Amazon cloud service,” said Terry Halvorsen, the Chief Information Officer of the Department of the Navy, in a keynote at Meritalk’s Data Center Brainstorm event Thursday. Halvorsen said the move could save the Navy as much as 60 percent versus the cost of managing that data in its own data centers. -Data Center Knowledge, 3/14/14

  39. 39. Why do we need good information? •  Managing emergencies is about the actions of Individuals, Local groups and councils, Government departments, Emergency services agencies •  Every action is preceded by a decision. •  Every decision is made on the information available at that instant in time. Effective Actions Guided by Informed Decisions •  The best possible information, delivered to whomever requires it as it happens. •  Processes, standards, systems and infrastructure to deliver information interoperability •  Good decision making requires a Common Operating Picture •  A desire and willingness to change We Need
  40. 40. January 2013 – Some Lessons! •  In 2012 the FireReady App and Website had been built by the CFA and were serving the Victorian Community. The website and phone app won multiple awards •  Friday 4 Jan 2013 As temperatures hit over 40 degrees Celsius in Victoria and the Country Fire Authority (CFA) had 60,000 firefighters on-hand in the event of a repeat of the horrific Black Saturday bushfires, the authority's website and app failed to keep up with demand from local residents. •  “The challenge we have is to model the surge capacity and understand what capability we need to build to deal with the rates of calls. We had 12 million hits on the website in 12 hours, peaking at 700 hits per second.” Craig Lapsley, Sat 5 Jan 2013
  41. 41. The Scaling Challenge – Massive Demand Changes 0   2   4   6   8   10   12   14   16   18   20   Every  Day  Use   Across  Agencies   Major  Fire  Day   Across  Agencies     Major  Fire  Day   Across  Agencies   and  Community  
  42. 42. Operational: Single View of Incident •  Common Operating Picture •  Shared information and understanding •  Shared action plans •  On-the-ground updates •  Operate from multiple locations •  All hazards •  Collaboration system (online) •  Historical record of decisions and actions
  43. 43. AWS Government, Education, & Nonprofits Symposium Canberra, Australia | May 20, 2014
  44. 44. Bringing New Skills to a New Generation Large Scale Education Application Aggressive testing to prepare for more than 18M youth coding on their website in a week, with a peak load of 330K concurrent users
  45. 45. Making Education More Efficient Migrated public facing web properties with large bursts of traffic from 38,000 visitors to 150,000 a day Improved disaster recovery, handled major event spikes in usage and 40% less expensive
  46. 46. Helping Nonprofits Scale "Working hand in glove with AWS, LeanIn.Org's development team was able to re-architect the site over a 64-hour period to ensure it would stand up to 200 click-throughs per second." Rachel Thomas President, Lean In “Ban Bossy” campaign
  47. 47. Moving Scientific Exploration Forward On-Premises Data Centers Hybrid App NASA scientists share large, complex datasets from projects like robotic articulation calculations and exploration of the Arctic climate on demand across the globe. Sophisticated load balancing includes cost analysis for optimal workload routing NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
  48. 48. Accelerating Research University of Chicago needed a cost-effective way to provide big-data analysis to labs around the world while providing always-on service. The university now hosts its Globus Transfer service on AWS, helping more than 12,000 users to move data with 99% availability. “AWS has helped us scale up the analysis and lower the cost of doing analysis.” - Ravi Madduri, Research Fellow and Project Manager
  49. 49. Ensuring Democracy Migrated core business applications for secure global access Reduced costs Focused resources Improved availability
  50. 50. Ensuring Democracy Built nearly 200 applications leveraging diverse data sets as a shared data source Enabled thousands of volunteers to make millions of calls to voters in last four days of campaign Campaign website Donation processing Data analytics
  51. 51. What Makes Us Different?
  52. 52. Increased agility has become the #1 reason organizations use the AWS cloud
  53. 53. Many Organizations Worry That These are the Only Two Choices Build a “Private” Cloud Rip everything out and move to AWS #1 #2
  54. 54. The Good News is that Cloud isn’t an ‘All or Nothing’ Choice Legacy Data Centers On-Premises Resources Cloud Resources Integration
  55. 55. Scott Wallace, Chief Technology Officer Shared Services Centre for the Department of Education and Employment
  56. 56. Public Cloud use by the Shared Services Centre
  57. 57. Who are We •  The Shared Services Centre began operations in January this year •  Provides a full range of IT services •  Corporate services such as HR (payroll, recruitment and reporting), finance, library, fraud, mail and communications services
  58. 58. By the Numbers Computers •  Desktops: over 8000 Office Machines •  MFDs: 310 •  Printers: 311 Servers: •  Total: 2255 •  Virtual: 1433 (1.75:1) •  Physical hosts 13:1 (virtual servers to a physical host) Storage •  2.65 Petabytes Network •  Unclassified: G for Government with a protected enclave •  60 sites on WAN Data Centres •  Two sites using around 500kw of power
  59. 59. •  PSPF/ISM •  Commonwealth Procurement Rules •  Australian Government Cloud Policies (2011,2013) and Cloud Guidance (various) •  APS ICT Strategy (2012) •  National Digital Economy Strategy (2011,2013) •  Australian Government Policy and Risk management guidelines for the storage and processing of Australian Government information in outsourced or offshore ICT arrangements (2013) •  Coalition pre-election ICT policy statement (2013) •  Commission of Audit (2014) Australian Government Cloud Policy
  60. 60. SSC Cloud Journey •  Pilot AWS for development and test workloads completed in 2013. It found: •  cost savings •  integrated view •  needed some process changes •  Security Risk Assessment acceptable •  All appropriate new dev/test workloads now delivered by cloud •  Server provisioning automation
  61. 61. SSC Cloud Future •  Hybrid cloud model for the foreseeable future •  Transition applicable workloads to public cloud at trigger points: –  Asset refresh –  Major upgrade –  New Projects •  Private cloud capability in new data centres integrated with public cloud offerings •  Service offerings that range from self-managed to fully managed
  62. 62. Key Learnings •  Try it – start small because you can •  Architecture is important – you are responsible for your infrastructure and availability •  You need to think about change management for people and processes •  Invest in automation and standardisation •  Provider security accreditations can streamline security assessments
