Turbocharge Your Virtualized Infrastructure with Self-service Provisioning


Published on

Many IT organizations have adopted virtualization to consolidate and standardize infrastructure. Architects across IT (enterprise, infrastructure, applications) and their partners in operations are looking to take the next step in automation and innovation using on-premise private cloud platforms.

The next step is self-service automation and infrastructure as a service, which provides automation beyond virtualization that supports elasticity and on-demand/per usage service models.


- How do you architect and govern self-service provisioning and elasticity across enterprises?

- How do you control access?

- How do you manage assets and ownership?

- How do you implement chargeback and billing?

Join us on Thursday, December 1 at 2pm EST / 11am PST to learn how architecture and infrastructure groups can work together to best plan, pilot, and adopt cloud computing. You'll hear enStratus and Eucalyptus demonstrate how to:

- Architect and automate self-service provisioning for enterprise deployments

- Implement governance to extend policies and procedures into the private cloud

- Create a blueprint for private cloud adoption

You’ll see a demonstration of self-service provisioning with automated security, budgeting, and chargeback, and at the conclusion of the webinar you’ll be eligible for a free trial and proof of concept of an integrated enStratus and Eucalyptus self-service provisioning cloud.

  4. 4. IT Trends & Challenges• How do you architect and govern self-service provisioning and elasticity across large enterprises?• How do you manage assets and ownership?• What about chargeback and billing?• How can architecture and infrastructure groups work together?

  5. 5. Cloud IaaS vs. VirtualizationA well designed virtualization environment is the basis for private clouds Capability Virtualization Cloud IaaS Virtual Machine behavior Very similar to physical servers due to VMs are not tied to a single physical server PV conversions and are disposable Application behavior Applications stick to VMs with tightly Applications and their infrastructures are coupled configurations decoupled for auto scalability and elasticity Resource Elasticity Resource pooling at the hypervisor, or Resource pools of compute, network and cluster level storage at the cloud availability zone level Resource access isolation VMs CPU, Memory, Network and Storage VMs resources are completely isolated resources access is not isolated Resource access authentication Virtualization allows unauthenticated Cloud has very granular per user level access to resources resource access authentication SLA and Quality of Service Defining and maintaining SLA is hard Relatively easy because of resource especially with quality of service access isolation and authentication guarantees Chargeback and billing Chargeback and billing are hard problems Due to per user level access and resource in just a virtualized environments access isolation, chargeback and billing are much simpler © 2011 Eucalyptus Systems, Inc.
  6. 6. The Need for Self-service Provisioning• Organizations/LOBs want to control their own IT usage – Can’t afford to wait for IT – LOBs want to monitor and control IT usage• Frequent spin up and decommissioning of systems – Dev/Test – HPC workloads• IT Ops needs to support multiple businesses in multiple geos – Wants to act as an internal cloud provider for LOBs – Reduce admin per server/network/storage ratio © 2011 Eucalyptus Systems, Inc.
  7. 7. Customer ExamplesAverage IT: 50% of infrastructure in Test/Dev but 90% is idle most of the timeLarge Financial Services “In their Wholesale Business Portfolio with a few thousand developersworking on 1,400 applications, the organization is looking into deploying a private cloud with a self-service portal for their test and dev activity. Chargeback and billing capability are very important as part of the self- service provisioning activity.”Large Defense Contractor“Researching a private cloud platform on VMware infrastructure to reduce test/dev, deployment and support of applications at the lowest possible cost. Self-service provisioning across many of their MS SQLServer, MySQL based apps and Sharepoint.” © 2011 Eucalyptus Systems, Inc.
