3 Bridging the Gap Between the Business and IT Two Key ChallengesGrowing chasm between Business and IT due to lack of agilityLack of trust for business-critical workloads in the public cloudLine of BusinessRequires speed, agility and the ability to innovateIT TeamFocused on maintaining reliable, secure infrastructureThere are two key challenges that exist in businesses today. The first is the growing chasm between Business and IT due to lack of agility. The Line of Business (LOB) is all about speed and time to market. They want immediate access to compute resources to be able to create new applications on demand. The public cloud is a great way to get that, but they are still challenged to evolve existing applications and integrate and extend beyond what they have today.On the other hand, while IT is focused on meeting the needs of the business, they are also focused on maintaining a reliable and secure infrastructure. That leads to the second challenge which is IT’s lack of trust for putting business-critical workloads in the public cloud.The answer to both challenges is to extend a common platform across both private and public cloud and seamlessly link them together into the hybrid cloud.
4 Common Challenges For Considering Cloud Customer problems:Cloud allows you to:1“I need the agility to scale IT services to meet the needs of the business, but have no budget to do it with.”Consume IT vs. construct ITDeliver redundancy without having to build on premise infrastructurePredictable billing that can fit into an organizations budgeting processFlat or Declining IT Budget2Decrease management overhead by deploying anywhere, yet managing onceEliminate additional training by leveraging the same tools you are familiar withProvide a consistent and scalable IT with one place to call – VMware“We have a cloud mandate, but our staff is stretched thin and we don’t have the budget to hire more.”Limited IT Staff andResourcesNow let’s dig deeper into the customer problems that we can solve in 3 key areas: 1) IT budget which is flat or declining year over year, 2) Limited IT staff and resources, and, 3) The need to consume IT resources quickly, yet securely.Let’s start with 1) flat or declining budget. A sample customer quote here could be “I need the agility to scale IT services to meet the needs of the business, but have no budget to do it with.” vCloud Hybrid Service solves this problem by allowing customers to consume IT vs. having to procure, build and manage the IT infrastructure themselves. It also provides a predictable billing model that can fit into an organizations budgeting process without unexpected and wide fluctuations in cost.2) Limited IT staff and resources. A sample customer quote here could be “We have a cloud mandate, but our staff is stretched thin and we don’t have the budget to hire more.” Here is the age old “having to do more with less”. While customers may have some flexibility in their CapEx budget to address key IT initiatives, the showstopper is when they don’t either have enough IT staff or the right expertise in house to succeed. vCloud Hybrid Service solves this dilemma by allowing customers to deploy anywhere, yet manage once. Applications don’t need to be modified when moved into the cloud, and since they will be leveraging the same tools they are already familiar with – no additional training is required. It also provides a seamless extension to their own data center with one place to call for support – VMware. No more time wasted troubleshooting or finger pointing.And, 3) The need to consume IT quickly, yet securely. An example customer quote here could be…”I need a cloud as secure and accessible as my internal environment.” As outlined earlier – one of IT’s key challenges is trying to meet the demands of the business, yet still maintain a secure and reliable infrastructure. vCloud Hybrid Service solves this by providing the best of all worlds. The ability for IT to seamlessly deliver resources and applications to the business, but do so in a secure way. In a market currently dominated by commodity, low performance, and insecure public cloud offerings, vCloud Hybrid Service enables companies to extend their data center to the public cloud with flexibility, scalability, security, and operational efficiency. vCloud Hybrid Service is built on VMware vCloud Suite, leveraging the trusted foundation of vSphere and including common management and security models alongside a community of over 130 vCloud Data Center and vCloud Powered service providers worldwide so customers can deploy with confidence.3Deliver IT resources and applications to the business on demandSupport existing workloads and new application developmentOffer secure multi-tenancy and organization isolationNeed to Consume Quickly, Yet Securely“I need a cloud as secure and accessible as my internal environment.”
5 Challenges Extending the Private Cloud to the Public Cloud Proprietary PlatformYour Data Center / Private CloudThe Public CloudOptimized for New AppsOnlyLimited Network IntegrationSeparate ManagementToolsVarious Challenges exist when attempting to extend Private Cloud into the Public Cloud. Including problems with proprietary platforms, public clouds being optimized for new apps only, sometimes limited network integration and connectivity, different management tools or interfaces and different processes or actions on public and private.This leads to increased OpEx for additional Staff, as well as continued CapEx spend for those postponing public cloud due to the perceived complexities of most public or hybrid cloud operators.Vmware is here to solve these problems with the vCloud Hybrid ServiceSeparate Processes, Skillsets,Leads to increased OpEx due to the additional staff and training required to manage all these disparate tools.

13 Focus on the Targets for Success Public Cloud TriggersProduct CombinationUse CasesCloud MandateMergers & AcquisitionNew ApplicationsFast Time to MarketH/W Lease or RefreshData Center CapacityLimited IT ResourcesBusiness Continuity/ Disaster RecoveryPackaged Applications Exchange, SharePoint, SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Data Analytics, Business IntelligenceWeb Hosting/eCommerce 3-Tier Web Apps, Mobile App Development, Content Delivery SolutionsBackup/Archiving/Storage Secondary backup and archiving siteOutsourced Data Center On demand data center expansionTest/QA/Development New application development, pre-production testingCustomers that have:vCenter Server w/Heartbeat+ViewvSphereAre likely candidates to adopt Hybrid CloudCloud adoption can result from a variety of different triggers including mergers & acquisition or application development which typically requires fast time to market. Another trigger could be associated with businesses having reached data center capacity and needing to scale quickly. And the last public cloud trigger is around business continuity and disaster recovery. Many businesses don’t have the luxury of having a disaster recovery facility today – but that doesn’t circumvent the need to replicate to another like infrastructure in the event of a disaster.Focus on the 5 key typical use cases:The first is around packaged applications. This is for customers who are looking to offload the hosting of standard packaged applications such as Exchange or SharePoint to the public cloud in order to free up resources for more variable and higher value applications.Another ideal use case includes Web or eCommerce applications so 3-tier Web apps or Mobile applications. These applications can be dynamic in nature in terms of resource requirements so the cloud offers a cost-effective and easy-to-scale platform.Another use case is around backup, archiving and storage. Customers don’t want to have to take on the capital expense or management burden associated with creating a secondary site – so the cloud provides a good option.Another is the need to outsource their data center functionality. The hybrid cloud is a critical stepping stone in migrating to a fully outsourced data center.And last, is leveraging the cloud for test, QA and development. This is ideal for new application development or any pre-production testing.And based on a recent adjacency study done by VMware – it showed that customers who have vCenter Server plus View plus vSphere are likely candidates to adopt a hybrid cloud.2013 Market Basket Analysis Adjacency Study by VMwareData from existing VMware Public Cloud Customers

Both Dedicated Cloud and Virtual Private Cloud can be deployed in monthly, yearly or ELA terms.The first is a Dedicated Cloud that is physically isolated – meaning there are no shared compute resources. It has a dedicated cloud management stack and the networking and storage are logically isolated. The service offering provides a minimum compute service of 30GHz vCPU / 120GB vRAM, and a minimum of 6TB storage and 50 megabits per second (Mbps) of bandwidth. The Dedicated Cloud delivers steady state, predictable performance which means it is ideal for production and mission-critical and security/compliance-driven workloads. Some example workloads for the dedicated cloud include Oracle, SAP, Exchange or other vertical-specific workloads or new application development.The second offering is the Virtual Private Cloud. This is a multi-tenant virtual private cloud service where compute, networking and storage are logically isolated. This service offering provides a minimum compute service of 5GHz reserved / 10GHz burst vCPU / 20GB vRAM, and a minimum of 2TB storage and 10 megabits per second (Mbps) bandwidth. The Virtual Private Cloud delivers burst workloads and is ideal for smaller accounts or short-term projects that don’t require a dedicated infrastructure. Example workloads include test and development, Web or mobile applications, or basically any development type environment. This offering is also ideal for a vCHS proof of concept.It is important to note that the capacities listed are minimum and that all compute, storage & networking capacities can be increased.*Minimum capacities listed. All compute, storage and networking capacities can be increased.
