  8. 8. The Big Data Boom – Industry Perspective• Telcos seeing a sudden need to increase use of data centre technology. – Global connected devices to rise from 9 billion to 24 billion by 2020 (Machina Research) • M2M devices to grow from 2Bn today to 12 Bn in 2020 • Handsets – 2Bn to 9Bn • Data – 4 Exabytes to 42 Exabytes (60/40 between PC and Handsets) – Drivers: • Consumer data use on mobile devices • On-demand home entertainment • Hosted apps for small business and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) • 4G will boost this trend• Utilities has made significant progress – Smart Grid and Smart Metering set to have a huge impact – The worldwide growth in smart meter unit shipments will be 13 percent from 2010 to 2015, with a total of 460.9 million smart meters shipped through the forecast period (IDC Energy Insight) – 26% CAGR in Europe, led by UK (109%), France and Spain (Frost & Sullivan) 8
  9. 9. The Big Data Boom – The Oracle Perspective• Despite talk about the data boom for many years, businesses have still been caught unawares by the sheer scale. For example: – 135 Exabytes of data (2005) will become 2720 Exabytes in 2012, and 7910 by 2015 (EMC/IDC) – The growth of data is outpacing storage capacity 2 to 1 – By 2014, global ecommerce spending is projected to increase more than 90 percent (84% Europe, 184% Russia) – Euromonitor International – Quarter of a billion apps downloaded on Christmas Day (Flurry) – 6.8 million iOS/Android devices activated on Christmas Day (up 140% from 2010) – Increase from 3Bn to 15bn devices connecting to the Internet by 2015 (IDC)• Businesses still trying to understand how to turn all this data into a valuable asset – Only now working towards changes in the datacentre to enable them to compete under the strain of Big Data.• Organisations need to be able to acquire, organise, analyse and act upon huge data volumes 9
  10. 10. Cycle II Insights II – Data in the Boardroom • Overall progress (5.21 – 5.58) in a slow business climate supports the idea that IT is fast becoming a boardroom issue Main reason for new data centre investment350300250200 Cycle 1 (#)150 Cycle 2 (#)10050 0 Need for Support Age of existing Move to new Limitations of Replace facilities Consolidation Business Growth facilities architecture existing facilities on rolling basis 10
  11. 11. Cycle II Insights III – Sustainability now on the agenda Oracle NGD Index and sub-indices • Organisations with no formal sustainability plan have halved (13% to 6%)Overall Index • Over half now have a sustainability statement in place and a formal plan to support it Flexibility Cycle 2 • There is room for improvement Cycle 1 – More data centre managers now see their energySustainability bill than in Cycle I, but nearly a half of them still don’tSupportability – Nordics and Middle East have made the best progress 4.8 5 5.2 5.4 5.6 5.8 • The Oracle perspective – properly engineered solutions can significantly aid improved sustainability performance 11
  12. 12. Cycle II Insights IV – Consolidation, Virtualization andBusiness 50 40 30 Cycle 1 (%) 20 Cycle 2 (%) 10 0 Doing "nothing" Using < 30% Virtualized < 10% virtualized Over 50% on consolidation virtualization to Utilization consolidate• The Oracle Perspective – Some progress has been made, but there are still clear, quick-win opportunities for technology innovation to support business performance 12
  13. 13. Oracle NGD Index Cycle II – Country Insights• The Middle East has made (proportionately) most progress – Good improvement from Cycle I in all areas, particularly Virtualization, Consolidation and Sustainability – Supporting business growth still a main reason for investment• Nordics have made progress in many areas – Systems Management, Virtualization, Sustainability, Server utilization• Some evidence of stagnation (e.g. DCH, Benelux, Iberia) – Only small increase in overall Index score – Small progress made in some, but not all, areas• France had already seen the need for new data centres• New arrivals, Russia and Ireland, have much room for improvement 13
  14. 14. The Oracle View• Encouraged to see overall progress even in the short time since Cycle I – Business climate means technology’s possible contribution is even greater – But business needs to move fast to gain benefit from Big Data• Organizations should be taking better advantage of technology to improve use of current IT and position for the future – Good to see that sustainability now more recognised as an important issue – Virtualization, consolidation are prime areas for priority consideration• Also, organizations should be considering how to adapt themselves – Approaches to procurement, engineering, testing• Oracle’s strategy is to help organizations address these issues – Be best-of-breed at every layer of the stack – from applications to disk – Bring these elements together into a vertically integrated system such as our Exa offerings – Build up our industry-specific capabilities – Deliver these any way the customer wants – on premise, on demand, etc. 14
  15. 15. Oracle’s Credentials• Between 2006 and 2010, Oracle more than doubled its employee numbers but still managed to reduce its datacentres from more than 40 to two – This has led to a US$1 billion bottom line saving• This was achieved against a backdrop of acquiring multiple companies• Oracle has taken advantage of its own technology to increase server utilisation from seven percent to 70 percent 15
  16. 16.

  18. 18. Virtualize Applications with SPARC T4 Servers "We have tested the new SPARC T4-4 system against our current Siebel infrastructure on the SPARC M5000 and the performance of the T4 system was very positive. The moving of the applications from the current infrastructure to the new T4-4 was flawless with no need for a porting plan or specific tuning. Using virtualization with Solaris Zones in the T4-4 system against a non virtualized Solaris environment in M5000—this was most impressive. Performance has doubled from our current servers. We think the SPARC T4-4 is the ideal platform for virtualizing and consolidating Siebel and other applications, from the web server down to the database server tier.‖ Umberto Angelucci, CTO, SKY Italia ―Our beta testing of Oracle’s SPARC T4 server demonstrated impressive performance and an architecture that reduced complexity and operating costs. This excellent performance on our mixed throughput needs, combined with the SPARC T4’s attractive software licensing terms, led to our decision to use the SPARC T4 system for our next generation archiving system.‖ Mr. Hans-Juergen Wolf, Archive Manager ―Because we develop content management systems for many German federal and local governments, it is critical that Materna base its solutions on the most scalable and high performance technology. We are beta testing Oracle’s SPARC T4-1B blades with our "Government Site Builder" application and seeing throughput and single thread performance improvements of 5-7 times in comparison to the previous generation SPARC blades.‖ Dr. Georg Kösters, Head of Business Process Management - Business Division Applications, MATERNA GmbH 18 18
  19. 19. SPARC T4 Servers and SuperCluster ―As a leading global financial institution, ING needs servers that provide the highest levels of reliability and performance to support our mission-critical business applications. Our testing of the ING application stack on Oracles SPARC T4 servers running Oracle Solaris proves Oracle’s Sun servers deliver quality, predictability and complete backwards compatibility while greatly enhancing system performance.” Frank Schots, Senior UNIX Systems Engineer ―SAS® Business Analytics enables faster, more accurate data-driven decisions. Whether it is risk analysis, fraud detection or complex optimization mathematics, implementing SAS BusinessAnalytics on SPARC T4 solves critical business issues in transformational ways. SPARC has long been a proven platform for SAS applications; T4 delivers SPARC performance at its best.‖ Paul Kent, SAS Vice President of Platform Research and Development. ―We chose to test Oracle SPARC SuperCluster for performance improvement of our current datawarehouse system and consolidation of sparse Oracle databases through implementation of RAC features. Our heaviest operation is datawarehouse loading and with SPARC SuperCluster we are expecting a huge improvement.‖ Aldo Chiaradia, CIO Benetton Group S.p.A. 19 19
  20. 20. Summary• Organizations must ready themselves to acquire, organise, analyse and act upon huge data volumes• Data, ―the new raw material of the 21 st century‖ is becoming a focus area for the boardroom• Sustainability is back on the agenda – the countries making most progress here also have best Index performance• Consolidation and Virtualization are still important ways for IT to support the business• Progress is being made – but there is still room for improvement• Oracle has a unique track record and capabilities to help organizations worldwide 20
