1 HEAnet Cloud Compute Update 1.HEAnet Cloud – a Multilayered Strategy 2.HEAnet Cloud Project 3.Cloud Realities 4.Role of the NREN – Why Cloud ? 5.NREN Collaboration

2 Brokerage Application Services Infrastructure Platform IaaS Connectivity, Network Futures, SDN Storage, Compute e.g. VLEs, License Negotiation (Software & Content) - Procurement/Frameworks - Legal T&Cs, – Tailored Public SaaS/IaaS - Federated Access - Peering Cloud - A Multilayered Strategy

3 HEAnet Cloud Profile HEAnet Cloud Profile IaaS – community cloud i.e. utility service = VMs on demand Platform is Red Hat OSP5 (Openstack) Federated User Self-service Portal – intended for IT staff End Product – a VM to meet client requirements = Connectivity to campus & internet options Multicloud solution No cost / low risk during POC period, after that – a service ? HEAnet Service Dimensioning - No. of Compute Nodes Client flavours Micro - 1 vCPU, 512MB RAM, 20GB storage Small - 2 vCPU, 4GB RAM, 80GB storage (Linux Server) Medium - 4 vCPU, 6GB RAM, 160GB storage (Window Server) Large - 8 vCPU, 16GB RAM, 320GB storage xLarge - 12 vCPU, 24GB RAM, 1.2TB storage Total VMs

4 HEAnet Cloud Project - Vision

5 HEAnet Cloud Project - Objectives HEAnet Cloud Project - Objectives Provide clients with assistance in working out how they can take advantage of cloud services Prove the viability of a Cloud service – a Proof of Concept – Provide Virtual Machines in HEAnet cloud and see if/what usecases work for clients – Provide a single interface to give clients the ability to provide and manage cost/access to public cloud services for their users Identify and prove a shortlist of relevant usecases for HEAnet clients Evaluate Cloud potential for HEAnet – service platform / future network Quantify client needs & forecast demand for future service i.e. Biz case Identify skillsets and support effort required to provide an cloud service

6 Project Status Update To Date Feasibility Study, RFT Design Workshops Server installation Network configuration Next Core OpenStack installation & configuration Edugate & Edustorage integration Acceptance testing Customer communication Identify usecases Onboarding for POC and support clients & training Business Case

7 Cloud Realities Much of the potential of cloud is in the early phases Private cloud/community cloud is not easy or off the shelf

8 Cloud Realities Lots of vendors talk the talk, few can walk the walk – RFT Vendors and clients are learning but understand the benefits Cloud is mainstream and here to stay but it will take time Traditional applications may not be cloud compatible Clients are breaking the traditional attachment to infrastructure ownership and service delivery Clients want services - EaaS One cloud does not fit all – Multicloud future

9 Role of the NREN – Why Cloud Why would NRENs consider delivering their own cloud services – what are the benefits ? The Network – High speed, low latency, resilient connectivity to clients Complimentary to existing services & a trusted provider Understanding of the Education and Research sector Trusted for data protection Federation Not motivated by profit Simpler / transparent cost model No network charges BenefitsRisk

10 NREN Collaboration GEANT SA7 Collaboration on Brokering & Building services 2014 Survey of NRENs and Cloud – an key part of the future for most NRENs … Individual NRENs cannot compete with commercial providers Active collaboration in GEANT GN3plus SA7 – Supporting NRENs in cloud Finalising a guide for NRENs on Cloud Strategy – Task Group 1 Situation different in every country – services, funding, client base, skillsets Invitation to TF-MSP Possibility to engage in the process to review the Cloud Strategy Guide (preferably with one NREN not in SA7) – looking for one NREN
