Cloud Readiness 101: Analyzing and Visualizing Your IT Infrastructure

  1. 1. Cloud Readiness 101: Analyzing and Visualizing Your IT Infrastructure Francie Tanner - panagenda 1
  2. 2. Agenda • Getting started • Introduction • What can you expect from this session? • What is The Cloud and why are companies “moving there”? • Making your infrastructure transformation a success • Key factors identified and explained • User activity analysis - who uses what and how? • Application design analysis - identifying scope and feasibility constraints • Summary: Infrastructure as a whole 2
  3. 3. Introduction • Francie Tanner, Director, Americas • Over 17 years experience in IBM Lotus consulting • Managing, architecting, and supporting 10 – 100'000 user environments • Experienced Lotus instructor and speaker • CH -> US -> AI -> US -> ? 3 | © 2012 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. What can you expect from this session? • Managing Infrastructure changes as a whole • Understanding how moving to the cloud is best approached in an IBM ICS environment • Ways to identify and measure critical success factors involved, in order to be able to calculate expected effort • Samples of environment and application analysis 4
  5. 5. What is cloud = someone else’s computer 5 XPages IBM Connections HTML5 IBM Notes
  6. 6. • What exactly is the cloud and why are companies moving there? • Why? • Costs – CAPEX vs OPEX • Flexibility, Integration, Scalability • Easier Upgrades • Speed (?) • How? • That is what this session is all about • There is no “Move to cloud”–button … • “Adapting a Cloud strategy” is a key driving factor for many 6 Getting started

  13. 13. Agenda Making Your Move a Success Key factors identified and explained 13
  14. 14. 14 Key factors identified and explained • Clarifying why you do it and for whom • Understand the motivators of your stakeholders Management / Governance, Technical, Business • Why you do it has a big influence on setting your goal and how you measure success • User Activity Analysis • Demand Characteristics • Usage - Reads, Writes, Users • Load - Transactions, CPU, Memory, … • Availability / Reliability / Performance • Geographies / Topologies • Bandwidth - demand vs. availability
  15. 15. 15 • Application Design Analysis • Cross Linkage of Mail, Apps and Business Processes • Dependencies • Features & Functions e.g. Telephony integration, Archiving, … • Interfaces -Fax, Files, Printers, data in a text file on some server … • Tying those findings to organizational structures • Has its foundation in user activity • Evaluate infrastructure utilization by cost center rather than technical by user or DB • Identify areas with special significance • e.g. databases which are mainly used by VIPs • activity benchmarks across departments Key factors identified and explained
  16. 16. 16 Increasing Consulting Demand Decreasing Risk for Customer & IBM Making Your Move a Success
  17. 17. User Activity Analysis Who uses what and how 17
  18. 18. User Activity Analysis What can user activity tell you? • Read vs. Write traffic • Mail vs. Apps • Transactions - Server load • High impact users & apps • Excessive usage 18

  23. 23. Traffic jam 23
  24. 24. 24 User Activity Analysis • Users • How many, where are they – session concurrency • When do they use resources – data center location • What kind of connectivity do they have • How much do they read vs write • Resources – Servers, Clients, Apps • Rich clients, iNotes, plugins, browser • How many Apps, where are they • Server power consumed and required • Bandwidth to/from servers
  25. 25. 25 User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools • DB Activity: LOG.NSF – documents with form type “Activity” • View selection formula: SELECT FORM = "Activity" • Add columns that are interesting in your scenario
  26. 26. 26 • DB Activity: LOG.NSF – database activity details • Note there is a 1400 activity entry maximum per database (FIFO) • There is also a 64K size limit for the user activity • More details in IBM Technote #1086245 User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools
  27. 27. 27 • DB Activity: CATALOG.NSF – related information, different focus – Full text index details – Replication information – ACL overview Note: Domino does not distinguish between user, server or maintenance tasks activity at this level User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools
  28. 28. 28 • User Activity: LOG.NSF basic information is easy to extract • File → Export → Comma Separated Value • Combine results of multiple servers in spreadsheet calculation software User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools
  29. 29. 29 User Activity Analysis DEMO: Activity analysis example
  30. 30. Application Design Analysis Scope and feasibility constraints 30
  31. 31. 31 Application Design Analysis • Why does application design analysis matter • Dependencies on hardware (e.g. dongle, mobile phone, etc.) or software (e.g. DLL on windows machine) • Standard applications (Mail, Teamrooms) often migratable with very low effort • Design complexity and code type may make transformation extremely complex
  32. 32. 32 Application Design Analysis • Geography and Topology considerations
  33. 33. 33 Application Design Analysis • Possible destinations • Web application (e.g. XPages) • Mobile application • Notes browser plugin • Hybrid • ...
  34. 34. Infrastructure as a Whole Understanding the big picture 34
  35. 35. 35 Understanding the big Picture • Combining usage and design analysis is essential • Organizational considerations • Who owns and “will pay” for migrating an application? • Combination with HR data • Compare efficiency of infrastructure consolidation vs transformation • Hard numbers are much easier to deal with than guesstimates • IBM Domino Doublecheck is a great foundation
