It optimisation & virtualisation

  1. 1. IT Optimisation & Virtualisation: Achieving maximum value through power, reliability & better integrated systems David Ball Systems Architect, IBM Systems and Technology Group
  2. 2. Infrastructure needs to get Smarter Digital data is projected to grow tenfold from 2007 to 2011 Of companies in the global 1,000 will have to modify their data centers to meet increased power and cooling requirements of CIO’s want to improve the way they use and manage their data Of digital data growth will be “unstructured” and requiring significant effort to “understand” and analyze 70% on average is spent on maintaining current IT infrastructures versus adding new capabilities 80% 70¢ per $1 10x Devices will be connected to the internet by 2011 1 trillion of information is exchanged over the internet every second 6 terabytes 70% 78% IT Infrastructure is under pressure It’s not built for what’s coming

  10. 10. Virtualisation with Integrated Service Management for improved business agility “ Integrated Service Management provides clients with the visibility, control and automation of their virtualised environments resulting in higher quality delivery of business services, at a fraction of the cost.” – Doug Brown, Vice President, Marketing Integrated Service Management and Tivoli Software Manage Workloads Automate Processes Optimise Delivery Server Consolidate Resources Storage Network Agility Consolidate Resources hypervisor choice Manage Workloads single “pane of glass” Automate Processes Tivoli integration Optimize Delivery pre-integrated offerings
  11. 11. Agility Virtualisation helps deliver improved agility Retail Example The marketing department at a major retailer is rolling out a major marketing campaign culminating in a new television advertisement at the World Cup. This campaign requires a provisioned web commerce site to handle increased customer transaction volume Reaction Time Start 6 months prior to launch Start 2 months prior to launch 2 hours after launch 2 minutes after launch 0 minutes after launch Consolidate Resources Manage Workloads Automate Processes Optimise Delivery Originally required PHYSICAL server, storage and network equipment be procured (CapEx) through purchasing with associated install, configure, test by IT Staff Web commerce server can be provisioned using available capacity on IT infrastructure with associated configuration and testing by IT Staff Unanticipated traffic is detected by IT staff day of event which determines that the increased traffic is not due to a security attack (eg DDOS attack) but rather from legitimate customer traffic, where by the IT staff is able to manage the IT infrastructure using a “single pane of glass” to reallocate server capacity to handle the increased customer traffic Unanticipated traffic is detected by the IT systems on the day of the event and quickly determines that the increased traffic is not due to a security attack (eg DDOS attack) but rather from legitimate customer traffic, and the IT systems are able to “sense & respond” to automatically reallocate server capacity to handle Traffic increase is anticipated and capacity is reserved based on marketing department proactively scheduling necessary IT resources to coincide with product launch and advertisement.
  12. 12. Consolidate Resources <ul><li>BENEFITS : </li></ul><ul><li>Improved IT efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing complexity by reducing the number of physical servers, storage, and network devices </li></ul><ul><li>Improving resource utilisation that helps reduce electricity consumption due to idling servers (utilisation), storage (virtualising and de-duplication) and network (bandwidth compression) devices </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing floor space requirements </li></ul>
