  3. 3. Typical Testing Environments* and the challenges faced today  30% to 50% of all Servers within a typical IT environment are dedicated to Test  Most Test Servers run at less than 10% utilization, if they are running at all!  IT staff report a top challenge in finding available resources to perform tests in order to move new applications into production  30% of all defects are caused by wrongly configured test environments  Testing backlog is often very long and single largest factor in the delay new application deployments  Test environments are seen as expensive and providing little real business value. * “Industry Developments and Models – Global Testing Services: Coming of Age,” IDC, 2008 and IBM Internal Reports 3 © 2009 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. How can cloud computing improve the test environment? Common attributes Characteristics Benefits Test resources are pooled and Providing efficient implementation-independent Advanced virtualization virtualized. infrastructure. Test resources are provisioned Reducing test setup and execution time and Rapid provisioning on demand. eliminating errors Test environments are readily Enabling visibility, control and automation. Service catalog ordering available. Test environments scale down Optimizing resources utilization. and up by large factors as the Elastic scaling need changes. Test resources are priced on Offering pricing schemes options for tests and user Flexible pricing supported topology and project acceptance. phases.

  6. 6. Tivoli Development Cloud Solution Business Challenges Lower Costs – Reduce capital and operational expenditures and maximize efficiency to free up funding for new development and testing. Improve Service Delivery – Deployment of infrastructures is mostly manual, slow, tedious, labor intensive, and error prone Become more agile – The current process is too time consuming and has no service level commitments and process controls, making it difficult to respond to rapidly changing business needs Drive Integration – Support the integration of our product portfolio by using them to manage our development and test environments. 6 © 2009 IBM Corporation
  7. 7. Tivoli Development Cloud Solution Proposed Solution Establishing a private cloud and use virtualization to allow underutilized resources to be consolidated into a smaller number of more fully utilized resources Use request-driven provisioning to provide developers/testers the capability to request servers, operating systems and storage on demand. Allow developers /testers to create, share, and manage their images. Solution Components  Self-service provisioning of virtualized server resources  Self-service provisioning of pre-configured application/middleware stacks for testing.  Integrated Service Management of Provisioning Environment. 7 © 2009 IBM Corporation

  17. 17. “IT Efficiency” – The End Users Perspective Example : tester needs to have a Windows box with WebSphere, DB/2 In the old days..... manual process 4 days Find an available HW Identify a network plug Install OS Install middleware .. when Virtualization came in..... 2 days Send email with request for a VM and OS Install middleware (manual) .. Today! 45-60 minutes! Request a service to have a VM with middleware combination 17 © 2009 IBM Corporation
  18. 18. Case Study – Montpellier Learning Center IBM Cloud computing in Montpellier doubles learning power at IBM Customer • The IBM Systems and Technology Group Product and Solutions Support Center (PSSC) in Montpellier provides sales support activities, such as demonstrations, prototyping, benchmarking, testing and hands-on education services. Business Challenges • It could take a week or more to allocate, configure and provision suitable infrastructure for a training course, and during this time the hardware resources could not be used. “Cloud computing has transformed the IBM Solution experience into a service • A Cloud computing environment that automatically books, allocates, and that we provide for the provisions resources for each course from a centralized shared pool of servers, MontpellierCenter. In the networks and storage process we use approximately half the Business Benefits hardwarere sources • Cut provisioning time from weeks to hours previously required, which • Eliminated configuration delays, dramatically reducing administration costs and cuts our building, workload environmental and • Boosted system utilization time to almost 100 percent,increasing efficiency and administration cost into reducing the need for further hardware investments the bargain.” • Provided correct resources and configuration for each course, improving user –Alan Gabellier, Montpellier satisfaction.

  19. 19. Case Study – Getronics Netherlands Getronics reduces time to market from as long as four weeks to a few hours Customer • Getronics is a leading ICT service-provider, delivering workspace management services, connectivity, datacenters and consultancy to help organizations and their employees to improve performance. Business Challenges “If we would not have • Getronics needed to decrease the amount of time it took to build new hosted implemented a dynamic services for their clients in order to stay competitive. infrastructure, we would not IBM Solution have been able to offer • Getronics’ new Utility Hosting service is built on an IBM cloud infrastructure that pay-per-use services.” enables staff to rapidly switch on and off cloud environments and to proactively increase capacity as needed. — Henk Simons, ICT architect, Getronics Business Benefits • Enables company to launch new pay-per-use service model that differentiates it from other hosting providers FULL CASE • Nearly 80 percent reduction in management costs per server per year http://www-01.ibm.com/software/ success/cssdb.nsf/CS/ • Reduced time to market for new services from as long as four weeks to just a few LWIS-7ZXU9J? hours OpenDocument&Site=default&cty= en_us 19 © 2009 IBM Corporation
