  3. 3. What is Cloud Computing?A pool of compute, memory and i/o resources, applications or operating environments withseemingly infinite scalability, delivered as a service over a network, be it private or public. Characteristics Service Types Deployment Models On Demand, Self- PUBLIC Service Software as a Service Public Software delivered through the Enterprise Cloud public or private network Pay As You Use, PRIVATE Metered Consumption Private Enterprise Cloud Platform as a Service COMMUNITY Rapid Elasticity, Scale Up/Down Development platform as a Enterprise Enterprise service 1 2 Community Cloud Shared Pools, Illusion of Infinite Enterprise Resources 3 HYBRID Infrastructure as a Service Broad Network Private Public Access using Compute, storage as a service Enterprise Cloud Cloud Standard Internet Protocols 3

  10. 10. Increasing levels of virtualization across the region Although early adopters used server virtualization primarily for test and development environments, more customers today are moving production workloads to a virtual machine. Have you virtualized your server At what stage are you in server infrastructure? virtualization journey? 13% 15% 33% 24% 33% 67% 15% N = 221 Running Pilot Projects (Pilot) Yes No Running a few Test / Dev environments (Nascent) N = 328Survey done with IT Running most Test / Dev environments (Evolving)decision makers >500 Running a few production environments ( Extensive)employees and at least Running most production environments (Advanced)5000sq ft. of RFS Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis. 10
  11. 11. Operational challenges in running datacenters today Security, network latency, data deluge, implementing virtualization and managing the virtual infrastructure are some of the leading challenges What are the key challenges you face in datacenter operations? Securing applications & data 17% 27% 56% Network latency 25% 29% 46% High energy consumption 26% 33% 41% Running out of storage 27% 34% 39% Implementing virtualization 20% 42% 38% Managing virtual infrastructure 25% 37% 38% Visibility into datacenter assets & performance 23% 41% 36% Less critical Neutral CriticalSurvey done with IT Managers and CIOs in Australia, Hong Kong, China, India, Singapore and Malaysiain Q2 2011. 64% with >500 employees and 36% with 200 to 499 employees.

  17. 17. Transformation: The Seven Ingredients Flexibility This flexibility helps maintain quality of service by avoiding resource contention. Moving from 3-tier to a 2-tier switch architecture Simplification reduces latency in server-server communications. Reduces i/o connections per server, number of Convergence switches and routers, and power and cooling costs. Creating a data center architecture that is simple, Network Virtualization secure, flat and virtualized is critical Direct links between all devices and change to TRILL Eliminate Looping and SBP protocol helps eliminate looping in STP. The IT architecture should be able to support a hybrid Hybrid Clouds cloud model Security Virtualizing security environment will help ensure VM level security measures are in place.

  21. 21. Cloud Prediction 1: PaaS will emerge as key battleground • Explosive growth ahead • Low barriers to entry SaaS • SaaS vendors need to move beyond “pure SaaS” to “PaaS” • Lock-in model • A segment headed for rapid commoditization • Robust service delivery platforms and flexi- IaaS pricing models crucial • SaaS is a path of natural progression • The key battleground in the future of cloud • PaaS market participants are expected to PaaS venture aggressively into the SaaS, IaaS turf • Openness and integration with other platforms, mobile devices crucial Source: Frost & Sullivan 21
  22. 22. Cloud Prediction 2: Businesses will be transformed byCloud Computing Industry Cloud Driven Transformation Banking Branchless Banking Utilities Smart Grids IT Post PC Era Content Streaming, Media eBooks Virtual Stores and more Retail eCommerce EMR and Point of Care Healthcare Solutions 22
  23. 23. Cloud Prediction 3: There will be a shift in how ITfunctions • Business skills such as project, relationship management will take front- seatIt is all about Business • Cloud will run on Commoditized, open source platforms with stringent SLA’s • IT automation will render several “dull” IT jobs obsolete IT departments will • Skills in demand will include technical architects, vendor relationship evolve managers, risk management professionalsSMB’s will have access • SMB’s have an unique ability to scale quickly and obtain access toto Enterprise class ICT enterprise class infrastructure resources • Advent of start-ups that live in the “Cloud” with no infrastructure Conglomerates will • MNC’s and Conglomerates will offer “IT as a Service” both internally become “Service and potentially to external customers as well Providers” • Drastic improvements in efficiency, effectiveness and measurability of IT • “Browser” is the software and “Internet” is the networkBrowser is the software • Ubiquitous access from any device, anytime, anywhere, any network 23
  24. 24. Cloud Prediction 4: Significant efforts will be devoted to Standards, Security and SLA’sThese are three critical areas where we expect considerable industry efforts in the futureand in a recursive sense are essential for Cloud computing to become mainstream Standards Development • Use cases • Reference implementations • Publishing of test results Risk Management Frameworks • Adequate security controls • Vendor assessment standards • Stringent privacy laws on data integrity • Third-party audits and review Improvement of SLA’s • More heterogeneity in SLA’s • SLA’s with clear response time • Financial liability • Robust privacy standards 24
  25. 25. Cloud Prediction 5: Clouds will change how business use IT IT departments will be underpressure to deliver “ITaaS”. IT departments will have to For private cloud to succeed in contend with and compete the enterprise IT needs to be against the external service underpinned by three important providers with better SLA’s, characteristics – Self-serviceagile provisioning and resource automation, Measurability allocation models and Chargeback and Service assurance Cloud computing adoption will be the primary driver for data center consolidation in the large enterprises In Asia Pacific, there will be several start-ups that will eschew the traditional IT modelCloud will enable governments and build their IT infrastructure to provide better public on the cloud in a OPEX modelaccess to applications and data in a cost effective manner 25
