Where is the market headed for the NextGen Private Cloud Today we provide dedicated private cloud and hosting services through utility and asset ownership running in a backbone of Data Centers This approach leads to unsustainable InDirect Costs (IDCs); large commitment based contracts, under utilised asset and rigidity Market demand continues to move towards rapid adoption of Cloud  Hybrid or ‘Best-Fit’ solutions  Flexible and agile consumption models  Highly integrated automated delivery Private cloud adoption and spending will grow faster; private cloud in 2019 is about creating a flexible, Agile, automated, and software - defined software development platform (Forrester, Predictions 2019, Nov 2019) Hybrid strategies are more common among European organizations and are also gaining traction in the U.S (IDC, Why Cloud Adoption Follows a different pattern in Europe,2019) Hybrid and Multi-cloud Architectures Become Mainstream. 84% of organizations will be operating a private cloud in 2019 (IDC, 2019 Cloud Trends, Nov 2019) The NextGen Private Cloud coupled with the power of Public Cloud will form the basis of all Hybrid solutions Leveraging VMC on AWS will reduce indirect costs and meet the market demand for a flexible Hybrid solution

Why Capgemini chose VMC for the Hybrid solution Most of our migration/modernisation’s have a similar constraint, customers want to move to cloud but they need to do it quickly. The best model to address this is 2 step  1st move everything to private cloud for technology continuity (VMware to VMware) minimal transformation, cheap migration (Using HCX included with VMC)  2nd step transformation. Migrate easy public candidates, which need little change. Then refactor, re-architect etc to move remaining systems  The best option for the 1st step, due to full VMware stack, is HCX. This provides easy migration integration and as moving the workloads to VMC there is no tooling costs.  We can leverage stretch VLAN’s through NSX and this allows us to mitigate the single biggest challenge we see when migrating our customers, which is changing IP addresses.

How do we foster agility and address the hybrid demand  Internally Capgemini has embarked on a journey to become “Asset Lite”  This is a transformational approach were by we are actively trying to prevent buying assets to put in data centers.  As the market moves to a more hybrid approach than one cloud fits all, we had to find a way to meet customer demand whilst driving towards our goal of Asset lite.  VMware cloud on AWS has answered this challenge, a secured and controlled cloud environment whilst leveraging external services in a pay per use or committed model. Eliminating most of the need for Capex  We are now able to solution for our customers in a consistent way whilst still achieving our own goals. We approach each solution in the same order: • 1st Public Cloud • 2nd Hybrid Cloud – Using VMware Cloud on AWS • 3rd Private Cloud - Using VMware Cloud on AWS • 4th Private Cloud – Physical Datacenter footprint

Key areas which are simplified – Driving operational savings Bringing all these areas into VMC not only enables reduction in CAPEX refresh costs but also in the OPEX costs of support. It provides the ability to consolidate the Vertical support towers in to multi-skilled horizontal resources which allows for a reduced support cost and the ability to leverage automation effectively through the use of standard platforms With more and more customers moving to a hybrid model, latency becomes the next challenge. If the web front end is AWS can you really have the application on premise? Page load times are seen as a critical KPI to the business. So infrastructure has to reduce latency as much as possible. By moving in to VMC on AWS latency ceases to be a problem as the Private cloud is now located in the same DC as AWS. With the benefit of being able to use a truly hybrid model without the expense of setting up VPN’s and Direct Connect connections DC DC Network Storage Backup Compute Hypervisor Traditional Connectivity to the Cloud from On Premise deployments Connectivity to the Cloud from On Premise deployments via Direct Connect AWS cloud AWS cloud AWSAWS Internet Direct Connect Internet region AWS cloud AWS

How we can address decreasing workload  By modelling the purchase costs of on demand, 1 year and 3 year instances we can adapt to migrations in a cost effective manner.  Another of the challenges in the modern Data center is how do I migrate to refreshed hardware and migrate to the cloud without buying unnecessary assets.  In this manner we can absorb the migration bubble by only adding the resource needed to exit the old platform whilst allowing the business to transform to native cloud.  Commit is only used for workload which will remain post transformation Resource Time Cost Avoided Cost Avoided

Why are Capgemini customers embracing VMC  Evergreen platform – No more costly refresh cycles  Easier maintenance – ESXi upgrades managed by VMware  No more costly backbone connecting data centers  If a customer has a requirement for a presence in a new geography able to provision in hours not months  Greater agility to react to market conditions  No more empty DC space creating IDC’s  Consistent platform across geographies – truly single architecture  Optimal license costs for niche products due to comparable CPU boundaries as legacy on premise deployments.
