1 TOSCA Value for CxOsAd-hoc workgroup status update to TOSCA TC membersEditors: Karsten Beins (Fujitsu), Peter Gibbels (HP), Paul Lipton (CA Technologies), Derek Palma (Vnomic), Matt Rutkowski (IBM)Date:
2 Objectives for this TC meeting Provide transparency to the TC about ongoing activities in this ad-hoc workgroup creating Executive Briefing materialEncourage input and feedback by other TOSCA TC members regarding the direction we are takingYOUR input / feedback is appreciated:In this callVia JIRA issue TOSCA-131By to: .comIn our workgroup calls: Tuesdays 11am EDT (see Kavi)
3 Content we created / collected so far To address CIOs - at a very high levelTOSCA introduction to CIO (slide, see p. 4)Call to action (slide , see p. 5)To address CTOs and Enterprise Architects – at a somewhat lower but still non-technical levelPossible TOSCA storyline (narrative, see pp. 6-7)Set of key challenges to demonstrate TOSCA valuesFirst illustrations of the storyline (slides, see pp. 9-10)Lots of remarks for speaker notes and a whitepaper (not shown here)
4 TOSCA IntroductionTOSCA is an important new open cloud technology, supported by a large and growing number of international industry leadersIt addresses critical cloud application challenges:Speed and accuracy moving apps to CloudTOSCA captures knowledge to automate rapid implementation and deploymentTOSCA spans the entire technology stack and multiple CloudsAgility adapting to change (Business and IT)TOSCA enables holistic lifecycle automation ensuring Integrity, Security and ComplianceTOSCA reduces complexity by expressing application requirements independently from infrastructure capabilitiesChoice of Cloud vendor and technologyTOSCA enables flexible deployment and migration on different Clouds while maintaining needed functionality, quality and manageabilityTOSCA is a recognized OASIS industry standard, aligned with key open source projects (e.g., OpenStack, Cloudify, Eclipse)Deploy to the cloud of your choice AND migrate from one cloud to another with changes in size and shape still maintaining the required Functionality, Qualities of Service, and Manageability updating and transforming the deployment as needed while ensuring Integrity, Security and ComplianceChange velocity / agility: (once you have already deployed something), correct error prone activities, knowing changes will workExamples:Change topologiesUpdate componentsAutomate all kinds of changes that are traditionally done manuallyMembers: ASG Software, Axway, CA Technologies, China Internet Network Information Center, Cisco, Citrix, CloudSoft, EMC, FastConnect SAS, Fujitsu, GigaSpaces, Google, HP, Huawei, IBM, NetApp, Nokia, Primeton, Red Hat, SAP, Software AG, VCE, Vnomic , WSO2, Yaana, Zenoss
5 Call to action for the CIO Business demands greater speed and agility while application complexity increasesIf you intend to use the Cloud to address these challenges then TOSCA impacts your Technology Strategy!Determine how leveraging TOSCA can benefit YOUTalk to your vendors and platform providersCharter your CTO office to investigate – we can deliver deep dive material
6 Possible TOSCA Storyline (narrative) Assign the main role to Application CentricityBenefits of TOSCA from an application perspectiveExtending the view to the underlying infrastructureAdvantages of TOSCA being an Open Standard
7 Application Centricity (narrative) The TOSCA standard is application-centric because in IT, applications are the key to support business processesFor compelling benefits applications are moved to CloudApps need Automation of key operations to deliver expected servicesOperations including deployment, update, transformation, migrationEnabling agility, accuracy and controlWithout jeopardizing integrity, security and complianceAbstractions are needed for these operations toDecouple applications from specific infrastructures detailsArticulate application requirements in a platform neutral wayEnable infrastructure environments to understand such application requirements and offer their best matching capabilitiesBe prepared to provide our definition of application centricBe less technical in last main bullet
8 Some Key Challenges for CTOs How do I optimize time-to-value for moving apps to Cloud?How do I leverage domain expert knowledge and best practices as cloud applications become more complex?How can I support business dynamics and IT change agility while keeping IT costs balanced?How do I scale to support growing business?How do I keep Development & Operations aligned while optimizing time-to-value and continuous delivery of cloud applications?How do I preserve choice of Cloud vendor, platform and technology?
9 TOSCA models integrate the collective knowledge of application and infrastructure component experts Application / ServiceWeb Server TierDatabase Server TierWeb ServerDB ServerWeb AppDatabasePHP Script ModuleContainment and Connectivity Concepts Support Composition & ReuseModels can be validated by automation to ensure app-aware, policy-aligned config, deployment and other operational semanticsReusable models extend investments by making composition of more valuable and complex apps from existing app models easy
10 TOSCA enables an eco-system where service providers can Compete and Differentiate to add value to Your ApplicationsApplication / ServiceTOSCA supports automated application requirement to service provider capability matchingApplication can be portable to any cloud (including hybrids) that meets the app’s requirementsOpposite of a “lowest-common denominator” approachCloud Provider ACloud Provider BEach cloud provider offers his “best fit” of unique capabilities, features, and services, based on requirements described by the application’s TOSCA Service Template
