Build the foundation for Private Cloud

  1. 1. Build the foundation for Private/Hybrid Cloud: Tap the App Mark Yohai & Greg O’Connor – Feb 18, 2010
  2. 2. Housekeeping • Please Participate • Use the GoToWebinar controls to ask questions • We’ll take most at the end
  3. 3. 2nd Installment of a 3 part series • Get more from server virtualization – Jan 28, 2010 ( Replay Available ) • Build the foundation for private/hybrid cloud – This Webinar • Decreasing TCO with server-side Application Virtualization – Mar 11, 2011 @ 11AM EST • Please Register at
  4. 4. Today’s Webinar Topics • Whats and whys of cloud computing • Role of server-side App Virtualization • Deploying server-side application virtualization in your private cloud
  5. 5. But First – a Recap of the Prior Session • Get More from Server Virtualization – Tap the App – Benefits & Pitfalls of Server Virtualization – Server-Side App Virtualization – Sets the Stage for Private/Hybrid Cloud
  6. 6. Why Cloud Computing • The next paradigm • Significant Benefits – Shift Capex to Opex – Increase Agility – IT at the Speed of Business
  7. 7. Gartner/Dataquest : Sizing the Cloud; Understanding the Opportunities in Cloud Services ( March 2009, pub G00166525 )
  8. 8. What is Public Cloud? Attributes: • Self Provisioned • Elastic • Pay as you Go • Uses Their Stuff
  9. 9. Private Cloud Computing is Real • I believe that enterprises will spend more money building private cloud computing services over the next three years than buying services from cloud computing providers – Thomas Brittman, Gartner, 2/5/2009, Private Cloud Computing is Real – Get Over it
  10. 10. What is Private Cloud…. Attributes: • Self Provisioned Virtual Machines Virtual Machines App App App App App App OS OS OS OS OS OS ESX Server ESX Server • Elastic Shared Shared Storage Provisioning, Provisioning, Storage visible to All visible to All • Charge as you Go Workload Workload hosts Physical Server Physical Server Management, Management, hosts Stores VMI, Orchestration Orchestration Stores VMI, Virtual Machines Virtual Machines ,, charge back charge back Data Data App OS App OS App OS App OS App OS App OS • Uses Your Stuff ESX Server ESX Server Physical Server Physical Server
  11. 11. What is Hybrid Cloud Attributes: • Self Provisioned • Elastic • Pay as you Go • Uses Your Stuff and Their Stuff
  12. 12. Why Private/Hybrid Cloud? • Infrastructure Utilization Too Low – Need better Infrastructure sharing • Provisioning infrastructure for Apps takes too long – IT Business Users need Self Service – and a more flexible responsive IT provider • Maintenance Costs too High – SW Maint costs same on physical/virtual Servers • Address important obstacles to Public Cloud – Security, Latency, Lock-in, Compliance
  13. 13. Today’s Webinar Topics • Whats and whys of cloud computing • Role of server-side App virtualization • Deploying server-side application virtualization in your private cloud
  14. 14. AppZero – Server-side App Virtualization • Enables 100% mobility for Server Apps to and from your cloud, their cloud, your Hybrid Cloud – Your Server Apps , no re-coding – Zero Lock-in – easily change providers, or use more than one • Enables a Simple 1-2-3 process – Create virtualized app from installed App – Move into *Cloud - Run • Based on the AppZero Virtual Application Appliance technology….
  15. 15. Why VAA? … Virtual Machines App App App App App App App App App AppZero AppZero OS OS App App App AppZero Virtual Machine Virtual Machine Application OS OS OS OS ESX Server OS ESX Server Physical Server Physical Server Physical Server Physical Server Server App Data Center 1.0 Hypervisor Vision Virtualization Pre - 2001 2001 - 2015 2010-2025 Server SW Consolidation Consolidation Continuity/DR App Mobility
  16. 16. Installing an App App Server 2003
  17. 17. Virtualizing an App App VAA App Server 2003
  18. 18. What is a VAA? A Virtual Application Appliance ( VAA ) is a collection of files VAA that includes Everything the App Server 2003 needs … but with ZeroOS
  19. 19. How do I create a VAA? Virtualize to VAA Source Target VAA Physical Physical or or Virtual …………………. Virtual AppZero Private Cloud Creator or machine Public Cloud Two approaches to creating a VAA base on snapshot capture VAA VAA and template approach: 1. Add the App ( Install ) 2. Subtract the OS Data Center Data Center Cloud …….( Scoop & Move )
  20. 20. Today’s Webinar Topics • Whats and whys of cloud computing • Role of server-side App virtualization • Deploying server-side application virtualization in your private cloud
  21. 21. VAAs in your Private Cloud Shared Storage Server Pool VAA Catalog Life Cycle Operation App 1 App 1.1 Start: No Install/Config headaches App 2 App 2.1 Updates: App 3 App 3.1 Risk and Hassle free Rollback: Simple & Easy Rollbacks Application Data Utilization: Dynamic/flexible Physical or Virtual Standard OS Consolidation: Image(s) Optimizes resource utilization All exactly the same
  22. 22. But Wait…There’s more… VAA
  23. 23. VAA’s can be Layered… VAA VAA
  24. 24. VAA’s can be Layered… VAA VAA
  25. 25. …Layers can be Shared & Reused Identity Separate application layers into Machine Instance discrete entities Machine Output Each VAA contains all that is needed to run its layer including Database config files and registry entries Master DB Instances may be made unique, Runtime Specific such as for IP address, using Application Identity VAAs Database runtime Executables Reuse means much less to manage and better leverage Services
  26. 26. Reuse lowers SW Lifecycle across Hybrid Cloud Config Config Config Master DB Master DB Master DB Machine RT Specific RT Specific RT Specific 900 Instance 100 KB Output Runtime Executables Config 3 Master DB 2 MB Services RT Specific Runtime 1 700 MB Private Executables Services Cloud
  27. 27. Key considerations for the Cloud • No Cloud Lock-in – Selection Criteria: Cost, SLA, Security, Latency – IT should be prepared for change • Apps built for the Data Center – 3-tier apps need no re-architecting • No Cloud “API” – Portability is at the App level not VM • No code changes – Scoop & Move is simple – Works with existing Management infrastructure
  28. 28. VAA in the Hybrid Cloud Life Cycle Action Private Shared Storage Cloud Instant Provisioning: VAA Catalog No Install/Config App 1 App 1.1 headaches Updates: App 2 App 2.1 Risk and Hassle free Rollback: * Cloud App 3 App 3.1 Simple & Easy Rollbacks Utilization: Dynamic/flexible Application Data * Cloud Single Gold Image: Reduces errors Stateless: Movement D2C2C
  29. 29. This works for really complex Apps Move Any SAP Anywhere - No AppZero or SAP install - ECC, AIO – ERP, CRM, BI.. - ABAP, Netweaver, Java .. - MSSQL, Oracle, MaxDB… - Unique Features - Changing SID - Change Host Name -Speedy & Flexible -Lowers Costs -Innovation -Implementation

  31. 31. VAAs Cloud benefits • Applications and workloads are: – Contained as one unit reducing provision and configuration errors – Isolation removes conflicts between apps increasing app density – Scalable by provisioning up and down form the network increasing agility – Movable from data center to cloud to cloud to data center -No cloud lock-in – Cloud ready • “Gold application image” and shared VAAs – Fast way to prepare apps for the cloud – Only changed VAAs need to be synchronized agile cloud life-cycle – App runtimes/configs are consistent and automatable enhancing compliance – No changes to application, management tools leveraging existing frameworks • The pay off – Fastest way to move existing apps to any cloud speed – Fastest way to replicate apps and keep them synchronized low SW TCO – Fast way to move apps out of the cloud to data center flexibility – Speed of provisioning makes for ultimate flexibility competitive advantage
  32. 32. What’s the role of Server-Side App Virtualization in *Cloud? Server-Side App Virtualization can be utilized for Your Apps in IaaS Clouds, can be used to construct a PaaS cloud, or used by MSP/ISV to create multi- tenant Saas Offerings.
  33. 33. AppZero VAA Summary With AppZero • 100% mobility • Physical, Virtual, Datacenter, Cloud • 80% reduction in Software TCO • speeds time to service business needs • 66% Increase in consolidation ratios • reduce server, image, and license sprawl
