How do people add CPU to Virtualization today – add a server. Is the app aware of the add? Is the user aware? NO. They don’t care. So why should the Server infrastructure have that benefit exclusively?
Key points Business critical apps have been the last to be modernized. They have the most risk. Custom, proprietary compute architectures drive up business application costs. Many business critical apps run on proprietary processors for many reasons: legacy development, better performance, etc. First step to modernization is getting to standard, common architecture that can support shared workloads. Once on x86, we can start to virtualize. We are moving forward on modernization journey. Virtualization sets up for shared infrastructure. The last step is running apps in a cloud where resources, whether available from internal IT or external providers, are available on demand.
Key points Business applications have to keep up with business changes. We have to add mobile components, improve performance for certain times of year / events, upgrade to be “cloud ready”, and be more flexible to quickly add modules like talent management for HCM when the business requests it. Standard architectures: we can get to lower cost components, we can minimize custom development and administrative tasks and associated resources, we have a common foundation. Virtualization: some apps start small and grow. Some are going to be used across a company. Rather than guess at the starting point. Virtualization lets companies deploy compute and storage capacity based on today’s needs and then add or subtract (and consolidate) in real time. This minimizes wasted resources. Virtualization also enables non hardware based availability. We can move resources across physical hardware so that disruptions to physical environment – whether they are planned or are planned, do not impact application availability. Cloud: Enables IT to establish availability, resource provisioning, and cost metrics to increase transparency to the business. App owners are aware of what IT will deliver and what it costs. Also facilitates shift to service level management. Boost performance when needed, reduce as necessary. Provision and de-provision users.
Key points – we are getting more specific. Control data growth: whatever the data growth is of an application, it increases by an order of magnitude when you start making copies for development, test and disaster recovery. These copies consume valuable resources, cost money, and have to be managed. The objective is to keep these copies to serve the business function without consuming all of the resources. That is where zero space writable copies, data deduplication and compression come in. Performance. Right now, if you make your apps go faster: you may split database instances, add more compute, add faster disk drives, short stroke the disk drives or any other tactic. All of these have one thing in common: they are expensive. Innovations in storage make it easier and more affordable. And the biggest is solid state / flash. You can a little bit to the storage or the server and you get better performance. This assumes of course, you have something in the storage software that knows where to put the data to get the best response times. And you avoid solving performance by splitting instances, buying huge quantities of hardware which are expensive but also carry huge software license costs. Most software is licensed by capacity ot size of processor. Development cycles. Speaking of copies for development and test. When we make full copies, it takes a long time. We have to make sure we have the compute and storage, kick off the copy process, and then actually do the job. This isnt going to cut it when we need to add new mobile features in weeks. We have think modernization means faster and this means making it much easier to create development environments to get new app capabilities deployed quicker.High availability. Business critical apps always get the most resources including a ton of redundant components. This isnt going to change, but it also doesn’t help when things need to be upgraded or migrated. We need to work with infrastructure that allows the application to be moved across physical devices so news ones can be added on the fly. No more planned downtime because hardware has to be upgraded. Centralized management. Controlling capacity, intelligently improving performance, and facilitating non disruptive migrations will inherently lower the operational burden on IT. The next level of modernization is the ability to control tasks and manage the entire Oracle environment from a single place. This means adding capacity to tables from within Oracle. Or, having the storage system automatically know when to move data onto flash. Or initiating a recovery from Oracle RMAN as opposed to having to go through the storage system to recover a file.All together, these should provide plenty of reasons to modernize biz apps built on Oracle.
It's Time to MigrateYou've made the decision to migrate from Unix/RISC to x86. Now is the time to make the decision to migrate your business-critical Unix workloads to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Enterprises have been migrating Web server farms, Web applications/portals, ERP systems, database applications, homegrown applications, and mission-critical applications to Red Hat Enterprise Linux for years.• Red Hat offers the sensible low-risk, high value alternative to Unix.• Red Hat Enterprise Linux has been successfully replacing traditional Unix workloads across the enterprise, including Web server farms, Web applications/portals, ERP systems, database applications, homegrown applications, and mission-critical applications.• Migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux can help reduce operating costs and offers hardware vendor neutrality and increased flexibility for businesses and organizations large and small across the world.Refresh your hardware with commodity x86Lower your TCO (increase your ROI)Increase your choice of hardware, software, peripheralsTake advantage of Cloud, Big Data and other new technologiesRun Oracle, SAP or SAS applications fasterAvoid end-of-life (EOL) of your database, OS or hardwareLeverage a standard OS with UNIX-like interfaces and toolsRetain your existing UNIX administration skills and talentBe in compliance (legal, corporate)More quickly adapt to changing requirements
Red Hat plays the lead role in developing Linux kernel or KVM virtualization or JBoss middleware.Red Hat sponsors and integrates MANY open source projects that provide free, working environments that are used as software development labs and proving grounds for features that may subsequently be incorporated into Red Hat's enterprise-strength, commercial products. Red Hat is also the lead sponsor for other consolidation projects around cloud, storage and virtualization.Red Hat's enterprise products created with a large supporting ecosystem that includes everything from partners to support/maintenance to documentation to training to consulting services to h/w & s/w certifications, and so on. It is the completeness of our ecosystem that distinguishes Red Hat from its competitors. Red Hat does extensive testing and Q/A activities, and the hardware and software certifications that are done. And the long term, multi-year maintenance and support that Red Hat provides.An important point shows how other IT vendors contribute to the development of open source software at every step. Individuals can also contribute. While, of course, shared development reduces cost, it is also a powerful way to ensure that new features are closely aligned with customer requirements. The list on this slide is just a tiny fraction of Red Hat's partners.
