1 Titul, Meno Priezvisko TechNet Europe 2011 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector Implementation and Adoption May 26, 2011 Peter Dostál,

2 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 Who we are Certificates: Privately held technology company HQ & Production in Bratislava, R&D in Liptovský Mikuláš & Bratislava Extended experience with Defence Sector & Home Land Security Quality Assurance: ISO 9001 and AQAP 2110 Information Security Management System: ISO Environmental Management System: ISO Security: NATO, EU and National SECRET

3 What we do: Special Systems Division COMTANET ® Tactical Deployable ICT Systems COMTAG ® Mobile Communication Systems Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

5 What we do: ICT Systems Division Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 ICT STRATEGY SECURITY MANAGEMENT NETWORKSSERVERSSTORAGE OPERATING SYSTEMS & FIRMWARE SOFTWARE & APPLICATIONS BCP/DRP Design, B&I and Support of: – HA Datacenters & Cloud Computing – ICT infrastructure – Security – BCP/DRP

6 Private (Internal) Cloud Our experience with implementation in the Defence Sector Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

7 CIEĽ PREZENTÁCIE Is Cloud Computing the right solution for the defence sector? What is Cloud Computing and what are the benefits? What are the limitations? Where and how to start? What we have learned? Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

8 Before we have started Individual IS were running on dedicated resources at different locations managed by dedicated staff Most of the HW was obsolete and lacked redundancy HW resources were underutilized Guaranteed SLA wasnt an option Lack of ICT standards led to extensive demand on human resources and their skillset

9 Business challenge GROWING DEMANDS FOR: ICT services and infrastructure Quality of ICT services: availability, capacity, scalability, security Higher complexity and more advanced technologies DEFENCE BUDGET CUTS: Acquisition cost (CAPEX) Operation cost (OPEX) Headcount Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

10 ? Business solution Service oriented ICT & SLA Shared and better utilized resources PRIVATE CLOUD ICT standards Scaled resources on demand

11 Where to start? SaaS PaaS IaaS ROI for Owner SaaS PaaS IaaS Value Visibility for End Users Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

12 Service oriented ICT & SLA Define required services – Limit the scope – Build a service catalogue & provisioning processes – Typical services would be: a small HA server at presentation layer or 20 GB of FC storage Define SLA for individual services – Availability – Capacity – Scalability – Etc. Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

13 ICT standards Select the technology for individual components – Limit the scope The built solution has to provide – A platform to meet the SLA: Availability, Capacity, … – Option to scale now and in the future – Required level of automation – Self-healing option – Option to be maintained while in the production Built the infrastructure with no single point of failure (N+1) – Efficient solution resilient to HW or SW failures Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

14 Scale resources on demand Disjoin the physical and logical topology – To scale up, simply add more physical resources with no disruption of production Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

15 Share and better utilize resources Share & virtualize all physical resources: servers, switches, routers, firewalls, storage etc. Provide server virtualization with booting from SAN and shared storage Build a secure logical multi-tiered topology – By firewalls separated horizontal tiers for presentation, application, DB layers as well as for the Internet DMZ, management and backup layers – Individual systems are separated from each other vertically via PVLANs on each horizontal layer – Traffic from and to each cell is controlled on the firewalls/IPS, routed through routers and monitored through IDS/IPS systems Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

16 Roadmap

17 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 What has been completed? 1/2 A datacenter with facility services: – Physical security – HVAC – Redundant and autonomous Power Supply and Distribution – Rack systems – Cabling and cable management – Facility Management

18 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 What has been completed? 2/2 ICT infrastructure – WAN connectivity – LAN and SAN infrastructure (switches, routers, loadbalancers, content management etc.) – Security (firewalls, IDS, IPS, encryption devices, SSL accelerators etc.) – Servers (physical and virtual) – Management

19 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011

20 Technology: Networks, Security & Servers LAN –Nexus 7000 & Nexus 1000V –FCoE SAN (EMC / Cisco) –MDS Director 9500 Security –ASA Firewalls –IDS/IPS Servers –Server Blade Technology: UCS (Unified Computing System) –UCS Fabric Interconnect 6100

21 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 Technology: Storage, Backup, Archive Storage –Symetrix Enterprise Storage –Server booting from SAN –FC & SATA Disks Backup –Data Domain –VTL –Advanced deduplication Archive –Centera –DiskXtender

22 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 Technology: Server virtualization Server virtualization –vSphere –Share HW resources Fault tolerance – vMotion – Seamless failover Distributed Resource Scheduling – Distributed Power Management – Thin provisioning Management – vCenter

23 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 Challenges To convince different stakeholders (decision makers, users) of necessity to implement the Cloud – Higher CAPEX investment – Limited ICT services provided – Limited portfolio of technologies – Potential security concerns To fulfill Special Security Requirements (NATO, EU and National legislation) Protection of existing investments

24 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 Lessons learned Dont try to do all in one step – The large projects never end – Limit the scope and deliver – Get approval for the next step Manage expectations – Decision makers – End user community Be prepared for extensive post implementation support – Train and educate the OPS staff Hold the ground and stick with the new standards – Some exceptions are required, but …

25 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 Is a Cloud always the right solution? Restrictions in legislation and policies – NATO – EU – National – Internal But…some services could be shared (think about that when you design your system) – Power supply and distribution? – HVAC? – A portion of physical security? – Other facility and/or ICT services?

26 Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011 What is next? To complete migration of information systems into the Cloud To further extend PaaS To provide SaaS To provide Virtual Desktop Infrastructure To build a redundant DC at a different location

27 Thanks for your attention! Private Cloud in the Defence Sector, Implementation & Adoption, TechNet Europe 2011
