  • RightScale manages clouds Private cloud partners enable (, Eucalyptus) Together:Speed to implementationPurpose-built solutionIntegrated technologiesMarket view & business model alignmentAWS-compatible hybrid environmentsTwo support optionsOpen source: Free editionCommercial: Equivalent features, functionality and commercial offerings to that with RightScale & AWS
  • Differences to clarify from Multi-AZ…Don’t be fooled by similarity of appearance…Some resources are not shared across clouds (images, Elastic IPs and Snapshots)…These are problems you have to solve… Images we have made easyElastic IPsyou need a global load balancer somewhere… or use DNSHave to copy the data yourself for snapshots. You can have a replicating slave in the cloud…Or backups to a common place like S3 (constraint is that EBS snapshots are only good in the same AZ)To get a snapshot multi- cloud portable you 1) slave sync or 2) take LVM snapshots and upload the data somewhere

    1. 1. 1 The Fast(est) Path toBuilding a Private/Hybrid Cloud Paul Mourani RightScale October 25th, 2011
    2. 2. 2#RightScale • World‟s #1 cloud management system • Managing cloud deployments for 4+ Years – globally • More than 45,000 users; launched over 3M servers • Powering the largest production deployments on the cloudReal Cloud Experience. Shared.
    3. 3. 3#What do we mean by “Cloud”?• A cloud is a physical datacenter entity behind an API endpoint• What does that really mean? • Amazon Web Services is not a cloud • EC2 is not a cloud • Eucalyptus,, OpenStack are not clouds • EC2 US-East, „my private cloud‟… these are clouds • An availability zone is not a cloud (but it is part of one) Think of a cloud as a “resource pool” accessed via an APIReal Cloud Experience.

Shared.
    12. 12. 12#Multi-Cloud Hot HA ExampleMulti-Cloud looks similar to Multi-AZ… but there are additional problems to solve as some resourcesare not shared across clouds You need DNS management Security is an issue as security or a global load balancer groups are Region-specific. Images for cloud servers are specific to the cloud/region. You need to copy or replicate data yourself as EBS snapshots are specific to the source AZ. Getting the data out requires a slave sync or taking LVM snapshots and transferring the data.Real Cloud Experience. Shared.
