Building a private cloud does not require building a whole new data center. The quickest path to the cloud is to reclaim and repurpose your current IT infrastructure into a new private cloud likely within your current data center facility. Making the move from the static data center requires more than just infrastructure; it also requires new processes and automation. This session will help data center managers: 1) Learn how automation aides in the migration to and management of private clouds; 2) Understand the benefits of deploying a private cloud; and 3) Review best practices for enabling self-service to a private cloud.

  • IT leaders are constrained by a lack of control, visibility, and scalability; they also need to weigh training and skill set requirements and the direct impact on resource allocation.
    rapid growth and constant change drive complexity
  • RIGHT: ORGANIZATIONS WITH MORE SIGNIFICANT ROLLOUTS VIEW VIRT MGT AS VERY!!! IMPORTANT, AND LESS THAN 8% SAY NOT IMPORTANT
    Analysts describe a measurable lag between new technology adoption and management adoption
    Virtualization management is still underinvested versus more mature areas (e.g. network, storage, systems, etc.)
    Configuration management. Start with improving configuration management, which is necessary to orchestrate the relationship among large numbers of dynamically changing VMs, physical servers, storage, and network resources. These tools are often referred to as “provisioning tools,” which refers to a higher state of configuration change management.
    2. Capacity planning and VM placement. As your virtualized pool grows in size, you will need tools that analyze capacity trends and optimize where your VMs run to minimize hardware footprint. These tools will be able to alert operations and engineering when resources are running low to guard against overprovisioning. You want to maximize capacity utilization to squeeze the most value from your server investments, but doing so without sufficient visibility is dangerous.
    3. Performance monitoring. Performance measurement will rise in importance as you increase the number of VMs per physical host and drive up overall utilization. We find this to be a particularly critical tool as you approach 20 or 30 VMs per physical server. To prevent problems from affecting user experience with multiple apps, your administrators need VM-aware performance monitoring tools that can help pinpoint issues.
    4. Real-time automation. As your virtual environment grows in size and complexity, you’ll need tools that can perform real-time automation by adjusting virtual or physical infrastructure to compensate for failures. Many IT services, like virtualization management, are reaching a level of complexity where sophisticated mathematical algorithms and object models of the services are more precise and efficient than even your most talented engineers.

    23. 23. 4. Focus on integrating your unique operational processes, not your management products
    24. 24. Customer submits order request via email to IT for new production environment 4. Focus on integrating your unique operational processes Service Request Provisioning Workflow (TODAY) IT Project Manager reviews request, confirms info and creates a Provisioning Ticket to schedule Server Ops provisions new VM’s & loads hardened OS config via CMS Project Manager notifies Customer that order is complete and closes Provisioning Ticket IT Project Manager confirms order information and validates request Network & Security Ops allocate IP address subnet and provision/configure firewall & VPN access EMS/NMS team configures monitoring; NOC personnel test server and notifies Project Manager of ‘success’ or ‘failure’ App/DB Team provisions DBMS and App Environment Customer’s production system is up and ready for use (Failure) Storage Team provisions required disk capacity from existing array and adds into backup systems and schedules daily routine 25
    25. 25. 7 days 14 days 21 days 28 days Start Manual process causes delays in communication between groups. Data Center Ops waits for Server, Network, Storage & App assignments from other overloaded groups. Notifications to Provisioning teams delay iteration in workflow from group to group. Manual service configuration takes place as groups have time (orders often lost / delayed). Testing of final solution performed by IT Project Mgr. Often provisioning errors cause re-provisioning of servers and/or services. Service Request process immediately initiates and begins provisioning process for new product environment. Automation orchestrates provisioning actions with corresponding systems for network, security, server, storage and application installation and configuration via CMS. Once new production network, VM’s, server, storage & app software installed & configured, CA PA performs automated testing process to validate system availability. Automation then registers new product system and component devices & services with Enterprise Monitoring & Management systems. As soon as service provisioning has been completed, Automation performs automated testing for the new production environment and notifies IT Project Mgr that the solution is available to release to the customer.
