RightScale Webinar: Hybrid Cloud Fundamentals and Lessons Learned


Published on

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.
In this webinar, we cover key considerations for building and managing a private or hybrid cloud. This includes a discussion of determining appropriate workloads for hybrid clouds, customer examples, and lessons learned.

Key topics:
1. Considerations and best practices for designing and implementing a private or hybrid environment.

2. Customer examples of hybrid implementations and key lessons learned.

3. How to easily include virtualized environments into your hybrid cloud plans and implementation.

4. Cost management and analytics for your hybrid cloud.

  6. 6. What is Hybrid IT? A combination of the following for capacity or capability: Public Cloud resources Private Cloud resources Virtualized environments
  7. 7. What is Hybrid IT? Capacity A + Capability = C B Source: 10/3/13 “Hybrid Clouds and Hybrid IT: The Next Frontier”, Tom Bittman, Gartner Workload X Resource A Workload Y Resource B
  8. 8. Definitions and Terminology Private Cloud/Virtualized environment: Compute, storage, and network resources for a single tenant that are accessed programmatically via an API and/or a user interface. Cloud Architecture: A similar set of multi-tenant resources provided by a cloud vendor with access via an API endpoint. Multi-Cloud: An environment that spans two or more separate clouds, be they both public, both private, or one (or more) of each. Hybrid IT/Cloud: An environment that spans one or more public clouds as well as one or more private/virtualized environments.

No Wait IT Keeps R&D Productive “Lilly is leveraging RightScale against application stacks in a ‘vending machine’ concept that allows self-service to infrastructure.” -Dave Powers Increase Enterprise Agility RightScale Solution Improve IT Efficiency • Reduce provisioning time from 30 days to 30 minutes • Serve up applications in an IT Vending Machine • Measure costs per hour for compute and storage

  15. 15. Use Case: Cloudbursting o An application deployment model in which an application runs in your datacenter and bursts to a cloud provider when the demand for computing capacity spikes. o The advantage of a cloud bursting-enabled deployment is that an organization only pays for extra compute resources when they are needed.

Use Case: Cloudbursting Automated Efficiency END USERS Load Balancers App Servers Master DB Slave DB Replicate > PRIVATE CLOUD App Servers • Run Steady state in private cloud • Burst to public when capacity is reached • Public cloud scaled down after load decreases • “Own the base rent the spike” Slave DB PUBLIC CLOUD Replicate > 15
