The cloud has gone mainstream... but what does cloud adoption mean forEnterprise IT and how does the cloud fit into the wider Enterprise IT strategy? Ali Khajeh-Hosseini @AliKhajeh
For startups… the cloud is a no-brainer, they just do it. (innovators and early adopters)
Tech challengesAuto scalingMoving apps between public/private cloudsHigh Availability and Disaster Recovery
We’ve made good progress inaddressing these challenges…And increasingly enterprises areinterested in using clouds BUT…
What are the challenges theyare going to face?Who are the next successstories?

Introduction 1. Who Am I? 2. Why Clouds Challenge ‘the Enterprise’ 3. How and Why J.P. Morgan Uses Clouds 4. An Untapped Market 5. A Plea2
Who Am I? Per Hammer • Software architect • J.P. Morgan (aka JPMorganChase) What do I mean by ‘Cloud’ anyway? • Platform-as-a-Service I am a Cloud Customer • Mid-size team • 80 people (60 developers) • Global distribution • Mid-size application • 100+ components • 50+ “logical” JVMs • 200+ JVM instances3
Clouds Challenge the Enterprise “All that data in the Cloud? It’s not in the cloud. It’s on the ground somewhere, probably in Virginia.” Things We Worry About: • Transborder Data Flow • Data Privacy / PII • Latency (Co-location)4
How J.P. Morgan Uses Clouds Not just one Cloud: • VSI (Virtual Server Infrastructure, Iaas) • CBB (Compute Back-bone) • 8,000+ x86 servers, 25,000+ CPU cores • 6,000+ Windows desktops for idle cycle scavenging • 228 TeraFLoPs, #16 on Top 500 Supercomputers (May 2010) • Compute tasks • Portfolio models – large memory • Derivatives – complex products • Risk analysis – stress testing • ABB (Application Back-bone) • Virtual Application servers • Scale horizontally (elastic), and vertically (inelastic) • Multiple data-centres • ATC (Application Testing Cloud) • Virtual Windows desktops on demand!5
An Untapped Market On J.P. Morgan’s Application Back-Bone • 2000+ Enterprise Applications • 500+ Development Teams • Every Line of Business represented • Average application time-to-market improvement of nearly 60 days • 175% increase in infrastructure utilisation, 45% drop in infrastructure costs • 700% boost in developer productivity What about the other financial institutions? What about other industries where traditional (“external”) Clouds are challenging?6
A Plea Separation of duties • No DevOps on Wall Street! You must be command-line friendly!7

The Enterprise context! Gartner predicts a 41.3% compound growth for IaaS through to 2016.! Biggest growth area in larger Enterprises.
Enterprise IaaS – the two key options SaaS PaaS IaaS “cloud-out” (VMware) vs. “cloud-in” (Amazon) Lydia Leong, Gartner
The IaaS Enterprise optionsThere are two primary ecosystems developing in the world: VMware and Amazon. Other possibilities, like Microsoft andOpenStack, are completely secondary to thosetwo. You can think of VMware as “cloud-out” and Amazon as “cloud-in” approaches.Lydia Leong, April 2012, Gartner
Enterprise IaaS – the two key options SaaS PaaS IaaS Orchestration / Policy based Cloud (VMware) vs. Designed for fail Clouds (Amazon) Massimo Re Ferre, VMware
How are they builtOrchestrated/Policy Cloud Designed for fail Cloud! Mostly private ! Public (mostly) and private! Often enterprise hardware ! Build on homogeneous x86! Enterprise storage commodity hardware! Resilience built into HW/CMP ! Very simple DAS storage model! Complex management layer ! Very little HW resilience! Rather complex to setup ! Relatively easy to setup
CharacteristicsOrchestrated/Policy Cloud Designed for fail Cloud! Protects existing investment ! Top-down design as service! Runs legacy Apps unchanged levels determine requirements! Complete life-cycle ! Re-architect applications to … management of resources ! benefit from cloud paradigm ! scale at an unprecedented level! Protect existing processes ! offer protection of failed components! Flexible and extensible ! Simple APIs and self-service! Feature rich APIs and Admin ! Basic lifecycle management! ITIL oriented ! DevOps oriented! Relatively scalable ! Massively scalable! Highest unit costs ! Lowest unit cost
What does it mean for me! There is no right or wrong answer ! Your IT legacy will drive you strategy ! Establish you key business drivers – ! cost? scale? global reach? agility?! Consider a 2-way strategy for IaaS ! Enterprise Cloud (VMware, HP, IBM, Microsoft) AND Elastic Cloud (OpenStack, CloudStack, Eucalyptus) ! Benefits: Best of both worlds, low risk, controlled transition, integrates well into public Cloud
How we help! Exception can assist organisations in establishing a strategic approach to Cloud adoption through a completely vendor neutral lens.
