5 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. An integrated abstraction layer that presents computing infrastructure as pools of virtual and physical resources, allowing users to dynamically compose them into Services –Rich Fichera: Forrester, September 2013 Forrester, VMware, and others (e.g. Bernd Harzog, The Virtualization Practice) call this the “Software Defined Data Center” Software defined computing

6 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited6 Enterprises will deploy their new virtual servers in dynamic pools “What percentage of your total x86 servers OS instances are in each of the following categories?” Base: North American and European IT decision makers at enterprise firms using physical x86 servers In four years, enterprise respondents expect to move about 20% of their current physical servers into a private or public cloud Source: Forrsights Hardware Survey, Q3 2012

8 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. Respond faster to business spikes –USAA’s mobile app created 10x the transaction volume than it expected Deploy and refresh new applications faster –Retailers need to capture their share of mobile commerce as it grows from $6 to $31b (2016) Reduce upfront capital outlays and system operating expense Optimize resources for systems of engagement This is not the end of the road Forrester content So, enterprises see the benefit of data center abstraction

9 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. Reproduction Prohibited9 Source: Forrsights Hardware Survey, Q3 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 Virtualization remains highest IT infrastructure priority, but cloud gaining “Which of the following initiatives are likely to be your firm’s/organization’s top hardware/IT infrastructure priorities over the next 12 months?” (Percentage of respondents who answered “critical” or “high” priority) Base: North American and European IT decision makers at enterprise firms with 1,000 or more employees *Question wording in 2009 and 2010 referred to IaaS as “virtual-server-as-a-service”

10 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. Inclusion of legacy or non-virtualized hardware resources? Interoperability of multiple vendors’ converged infrastructure systems? Software-defined networking approach – SDN vs. OpenFlow vs. Cisco Management remains a mystery –Lack of real time data –Lack of global optimization strategies Forrester content Architectural challenges for SDDC

11 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. SDDC management will place a premium on new management models –Real time data collection –Embedded Analytics –Ability to span multiple data source domains intelligently Analytics will have different goals – efficiency, cost, root cause analysis Goals include workload-centric optimization, global cost and energy efficiency, global availability … very tough challenges for management vendors Forrester content Management is more than monitoring

12 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. The term is largely unheard of, but infrastructure leaders generally understand or can guess what this implies More senior leaders think of consolidated data centers of the past –But many are “wait and see” –“Sounds nice, but how do we get there?” Skepticism that one company can do servers, storage and network well –That impression might be different when speaking to established converged infrastructure customers (UCS/VCE/FlexPod/Pure customers) Server virtualization is seen as much more advance than SDN or software defined storage Buy-in on the concept will require cross-silo strategy and collaboration and threaten established centers of power in the data center Forrester content Software defined data center - Considerations

34 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. Analytics –Monitoring technology performance utilization trends, statistics –“Siloed” problem analysis –Planning focus: optimizing server cost versus performance Extremely technology-centric – in isolation –Servers and mainframes: physical and virtual –Storage and network: physical and virtual Big value and return, but also a big effort –Requires highly trained staff; domain expertise –Requires building a central, long-term repository (CMIS or PMDB) –Problems with scalability of staff and tools … Politics! Capacity management: Today’s IT optimization tradition

Build on traditional value –Optimize more resources –Amplify –Accelerate Increase business relevance –Valuable predictive analytics in business and service context –Optimize efficiency Virtualization and cloud  SDDC: scale everything –Many-to-many interrelationships; capacity more critical –Back end performance now more critical –Front-end devices -> performance and capacity New capacity management goals

36 Copyright © 2012 TeamQuest Corporation. All Rights Reserved. Continuous DevOps, consolidation, repurposing, re-hosting, etc. –Least used (servers, virtual servers, storage, etc.) –Most power (consumption, carbon footprint, etc.) –Most expensive (total OpEx) –By application, over time… and many more Financial optimization – not utilization anymore! –Under-used doesn’t necessarily mean wasteful! –Over-used doesn’t necessarily mean lost revenue/profit Goal: eliminate true waste, ensure performance Infrastructure optimization
