Organizations everywhere are looking for the best ways to leverage cloud technologies to maximize efficiencies, minimize costs, and increase agility. Research shows that a majority of enterprises are taking a hybrid cloud approach to leverage existing hardware or to meet performance, compliance, and security requirements.

During this webinar, RightScale and Redapt are teaming up to walk you through private and hybrid cloud environments and share their best practices on evaluating, designing, and deploying a hybrid cloud architecture. We’ll dive into the private cloud aspect and how to build a private cloud to meet your requirements.

You’ll walk away from from this webinar with a fundamental understanding of:
1. Requirements mapping
2. Private cloud hardware considerations
3. Private cloud orchestration software considerations
4. Connecting private and public cloud resources
5. Cloud security

RightScale Webinar feat. Redapt: How to Build a Private or Hybrid Cloud

  1. 1. HOW TO GET STARTED: BUILD A PRIVATE OR HYBRID CLOUD
  2. 2. Your Panel Today Mark Williams •  CTO, Redapt Ryan Geyer •  Cloud Solutions Engineer, RightScale Please use the “Questions” window to ask questions at any time!
  3. 3. Agenda •  Overview of Private/Hybrid •  Requirements mapping •  Hardware and software considerations •  Customer Example •  Demo •  Live Q&A
  4. 4. Capital Leverage Workforce Leverage Cloud Infrastructure Gives the CIO Leverage Self Service Remove IT from the critical path of service delivery Management Automation Reduce IT labor costs and shorten SLAs Workload Standardization Ensure consistency with each application and service deployment Usage Metering Retain real-time visibility into resource allocation and line of business usage Centralized Management Smarter Virtualization Increase server/admin ratio and delivers benefits of scale Reduce capital and licensing requirements
  5. 5. Hybrid Gaining Ground Cloud Infrastructure Gives the CIO Leverage Multi-public 15% No plans 7% Single public 11% Multi-cloud 77% Multi-private 15% Hybrid cloud 47% Single private 5% Source: RightScale State of the Cloud Report 2013

  8. 8. 8 Requirements Mapping Defining Use Case and Application Workloads •  When to Choose Hybrid? •  Application Workloads – Assess where your apps are on the continuum of “ cloudreadiness” Budget Validation, Education, and Sponsorship to IT Leadership / CFO Application “Cloud-Readiness” (Truly elastic app that auto-scales, self-healing) Horizontal Architectures Monolithic / Static
  9. 9. 9 Hybrid Cloud Hybrid works for use cases needing: Seasonal Spikes. Disaster Readiness. Unpredictable Changes/Growth. Need for portions of app. Infrastructure to run on unique hardware. •  Security Requirements. •  •  •  • 
  10. 10. 10 Private Cloud Hardware Considerations •  Leverage reference architecture – designed with YOU in mind. •  Ability to define the redundancy of your infrastructure. Software Considerations •  Assess application/workload maturity to align to the appropriate orchestration platform. •  Evolving Business Requirements may occur quickly, unify operations with RightScale.
  11. 11. 11 Connecting Private & Hybrid Resources •  Unify provisioning in RightScale to normalize and consolidate your environments. •  Be prescriptive in selecting which public resources to combine with your private resources.
  12. 12. How We Fit Together 12
  13. 13. Customer Example: Zynga CHALLENGES •  •  •  SOLUTIONS •  •  *Source: Intel Solution Brief, “Entertainment company integrates over 1,000 customized racks in one year”
  14. 14. 14 Why Modernize Your Apps for Cloud? Improve Reliability & Scalability •  Enable auto-scaling & self-healing Cost Reduction •  Eliminate dependencies on" “heavy” infrastructure •  Lower TCO Shorten Deployment Time •  Continuous Integration •  Automate deployments Optimized Utilization
  15. 15. 15 Redapt’s AMM Process EVALUATE PLAN EXECUTE Evaluate your applications thoroughly, creating a modernization or migration strategy. Define a program road map, prioritizing applications, and assessing their fit for cloud. Implement road map: Defining, modernizing, testing, deploying and validating for each app. TRANSITION Provide ongoing support and training ensuring a seamless transition.
  16. 16. 16 Hybrid Cloud ROI – From AWS to Hybrid Original Environment: 100% AWS •  91 c1.xlarge •  9 m1.mixed instances •  No EBS (Using Ephemeral Storage) •  Internet Traffic ~ 100 Mbps. •  S3 / Glacier •  RightScale Three-Year AWS EC2 Cost: $1,120,830 * Hybrid Environment: Private Data Center for “Compute”, Keep S3/Glacier in AWS, Burst EC2 + S3 / Glacier via DirectConnect •  26 Dell Compute Nodes •  Citrix CloudPlatform •  Storage for machine images •  24x7 Hardware Monitoring/Management Three-Year Private Cloud Cost: $836,856 Assuming no bursting, AWS EC2 declines to near zero post-migration (RightScale & AWS S3 costs: “flat”) ROI Inflection after 18 months (1-Year Reserves w/ Heavy Utilization) * Cost estimates derived from AWS Usage Reports and
  17. 17. 17 Private/Hybrid Cloud vs. Public – ROI Summary
