3 The Cisco Microsoft alliance over the past three years has provided a stream of technology innovation ranging from the introduction of our UCS compute family, our Hyper-V Extensible Switch offer Nexus 1000V, to some of the best System Center integration and PowerShell work seen to date. In late 2013 and early 2014 Cisco continued to release new technologies that support Microsofts Cloud OS: our Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) architecture, Invicta solid state flash capabilities for UCS, and Cisco Intercloud, a hybrid cloud management solution. ACI, Invicta, and Intercloud offer up a technology trifecta that provide support for Cloud OS - Windows Server and Azure - and System Center. These technologies will enable quicker more efficient cloud deployments, workload deployments based on SQL, Exchange, and SharePoint s well as improved integrated manageability. This session will introduce these three Cisco technologies and showcase their discrete integrations into Windows Server, System Center, and Azure.



6 Increased OpEx is attributed to network optimization to VMs to deliver application SLAs Source: ZK Research Operating expenses represent over 80% of DC spending Network optimization for virtual servers is driving OpEx spending


8 Contract OUTSIDEOUTSIDE DBDBAPPAPPWEB ADCADCF/WADCF/WADC What is an application policy? Group: A set of VMS / servers with the same policy 1. Contracts: A set of rules governing communication between groups 2. Service Chains: A set of network services between groups 3.



11 OPFLEX WAS DESIGNED TO OFFER: Policies: Who can talk to whom What about Ops requirements Abstract policies rather than device-specific configuration 1. Flexible, extensible definition of using XML / JSON 2. Support for any device including virtual switches, physical switches, network services with strong interoperability across vendors 3. Open, standardized API with an open source reference implementation 4. OPFLEX PROXY OPFLEX AGENT HYPERVISOR SWITCH ADCFIREWALL

22 NO MAYBE YES 26% 7% 70%* Will Your Enterprise Be Pursuing A Hybrid Cloud Computing Strategy By 2015? Source: Gartner DC Summit, December 2012 (Base 400+ Enterprise customers) Customers Seek to Leverage Service Provider Clouds to Complement On-Premise Servers Which statement best describes your firms current or planned strategy regarding the use of service providers for cloud IaaS? Use IaaS for peak workload or special demand to complement in- house servers and storage Use IaaS as primary, complemented by on-premise server and storage for special demands Use IaaS for all server and storage needs We dont have an IaaS strategy yet Source: Forrester, 2013 (study commissioned by Cisco) Customers Want Hybrid Clouds, Not Just IaaS
