  9. 9. Why Nimbula●  Team: experience at EC2 ●  We know management at scale ●  We understand next-gen app architecture and the infrastructure it requires●  Strength of core architecture ●  Future proof – the Nimbula implementation scales ●  The enterprise cloud •  Quality of service •  Deep tenant isolation – network, permission, performance •  Enterprise organizational structure mapped to cloud usability ●  Automation of everything for lowest opex •  Install •  Control plane resiliency and auto-healing •  Placement and resource control Slide 9
  10. 10. Why Nimbula●  Built from the ground up for simple cloud ●  Not a rework and complex layering of legacy IT tools●  Cloud friendly business model●  Complete and ready today! ●  Not a framework or blueprint ●  Not a DIY project●  We eat our own dogfood Slide 10
  11. 11. With Nimbula Your IT Can Have…Massive elasticity●  Deploy 1000+ instances in under 30 minutes●  Deploy 100 physical nodes in 2 hoursComplete resiliency●  Unplug any rack without impacting cloud availability – end users keep working with the cloud APIs●  Quick automated restart of all instances on the dead rackSimple setup and teardown of a very complex application – examples:●  Deploy scale-out analytics app in minutes using a simple launch plan and instantly start marshaling the cloud’s power for an analytic job●  Deploy an application with a very involved intra-instance network security policy ●  Without any cloud admin activity ●  No VLANs creation, or external firewall configuration Slide 11
  12. 12. With Nimbula Your IT Can Have…Worldwide deployment●  Shared identity across multiple sites in different GEOs●  Loss of entire site does not impact user’s ability to use the cloud●  Simple way to build DR-enabled apps across sites●  Single workflow, security model, and audit trail for public and private cloudCollaborative development●  Selective sharing across tenants in a self-service manner ●  Without involvement of cloud admin ●  With better checks and balances than are provided in traditional IT ACLsExtensibility●  Introduce PaaS, data services, network services native to your cloud Slide 12

  14. 14. Cloud Friendly Business Model●  Usage based per core annual subscription ●  Customers can deploy on infrastructure and pay based on workload growth and usage ●  Positive impact on Opex●  Pricing allows very competitive cost structure ●  $300 per year per core ●  Allows to build profitable cloud offeringper core $0.03 /hour vs. > $0.15 /hour (EC2) (vSphereper server* $2,400 /year vs. $9,178 /year + vCenter + vCloud Director) * Price assumes a dual CPU quad core server, includes maintenance and 24/7 support Slide 14
