1 Cloud computing for System z

Cloud-onomics… CLOUD COMPUTING = Reduced Cost ….leverages virtualization, standardization and automation to free up operational budget for new investment VIRTUALIZATION + ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDIZATION AUTOMATION In today’s economy, many businesses are faced with the challenge of “taking cost out” of their infrastructure while continuing to deliver new , innovative business services - basically they need to “do more with less” There are two primary levers to achieve cost optimization – operating expense and capital expense, and for many businesses its not just a question of lowering costs its also important to strike the right balance between Op-ex and Cap-Ex On the horizontal axis, you have virtualization, or the ability to pool the IT resources to reduce capital expense of hardware, software and facilities. On the vertical axis, is standardization…with common software stacks , operational policies, and improved service management. The farther you can drive standardize the more you reduce operating expense – like labor and downtime – which is far and away the fastest growing piece of the IT spend. The more standardization you are able to achieve within your infrastructure, the greater the economies of your operating expenses become. Similarly, the more you leverage virtualization within your IT infrastructure, the greater the economies of your capital expenditures will be. So addressing both standardization and virtualization is key to reduce infrastructure costs, while still meeting the dynamic needs of the business. The need to achieving cost optimization has also provided fertile ground for Cloud Computing. The cloud paradigm is an attempt to improve service delivery by applying engineering discipline and economies of scale in an Internet inspired architecture. Cloud computing can be an important new option in helping businesses optimize the IT expense equation while maintaining fast, high quality service delivery. NOTE: If asked to discuss public vs. private clouds: - A private cloud drives efficiency, while retaining control and greater customization. - Public clouds today are for processes deemed more easily standardized and a lower security risk. There some functions that already exhibit a high degree of standardization, that are more easily moved to a public cloud – things like search, e-commerce, and discreet business processes like sales force management. + + + = = AGILITY BUSINESS & IT ALIGNMENT SERVICE FLEXIBILITY INDUSTRY STANDARDS OPTIMIZED BUSINESS …allowing you to optimize new investments for direct business benefits 2

3 Cloud Computing Delivery Models
Flexible Delivery Models Public … Access by Service provider owned and managed. subscription. Delivers select set of standardized business process, application and/or infrastructure services on a flexible price per use basis. Private … Privately owned and managed. Access limited to client and its partner network. Drives efficiency, standardization and best practices while retaining greater customization and control Cloud Services Cloud Computing Model Hybrid … Access to client, partner network, and third party resources .…Standardization, capital preservation, flexibility and time to deploy .… Customization, efficiency, availability, resiliency, security and privacy ORGANIZATION CULTURE GOVERNANCE ...service sourcing and service value 3

7 The Mainframe Cloud agenda
Focus on Strengths Extend the Data Serving and Massive Virtualization Strategy of System z to embrace Cloud Computing Take advantage of System z efficiencies As the industry drives the focus from capital to operational costs, the opportunity to grow the presence of the mainframe is clear Extend the mainframe strategy Use the traditional strengths of System z to offer a differentiated IBM Cloud offering to our enterprise customers and transparently to the broader community.

8 InfoSphere Information Server
System z Data Cloud allows customers to bring BI services with less cost and higher qualities of availability and security. Business Services Portal What is a Data Cloud? Centralize BI using Cognos on z/Linux Take Data from anywhere: structured, unstructured, applications, mainframe, or distributed Deliver consumer driven services to a broad set of users / lines of business Automate delivery of services Why z for data clouds? Save costs with operational efficiencies of z and virtualization Deliver qualities of service: availability, security, recoverability Allow for elastic growth in tenants and data Prevent unforeseen operations costs that occurs with a patchwork IT investment pattern Understand Cleanse Transform DB2 Warehouse for z/OS TSAM zLinux InfoSphere Information Server Deliver Central repository for data .. For multi-users/ line of businesses Cloud of analytical applications that can be provisioned dynamically as users and new users are identified and authorized Leverage the data centric strengths of z: allows for multi-tenant data support, Sysplex enablement and massive consolidation at the application layer

9 System z Public Sector Cloud delivers a robust and secure open source solution for efficiently reaching massive volumes of users. Why z for the Public Sector Cloud? Leverages limited IT pool most effectively Operationally efficient with broadest reach Highly virtualized with LPAR isolation and shared everything infrastructure Supports an open source environment Runs mixed workloads effectively What is a Public Sector Cloud? Education, healthcare or government services that can be hosted by university, corporate & government entities Partnership with open source & low cost application vendors in the public sector space Designed for effective use of the available resources – skills, power, etc. for maximum impact Gov’t Services Education Services Value add security services Healthcare Services Automation, Metering, Billing LAMP stack or IBM MW z/VM OSS workload examples: Consumer & business services: Virtual Linux desktops Education services: Education ERP for financials, student administration and research Learning Management System for remote course mgmt, collaboration, and content Government services: Disaster recovery finding missing people, managing aid, managing volunteers, tracking camps effectively between Government groups, civil society and victims OSS Healthcare services: Open Medical Record System for standardized medical informatics OSS OSS OSS OSS

10 A summary of client insights from engagements
What we’ve learned… Cloud is a strategic C-Suite discussion Clients focused on how cloud solves business problems (and in today’s economy) in a self-funding manner Center discussion on business drivers, how our solution solves their issues, ROI, and lessons learned IBM has brand permission to assert leadership Clients want clear view of architectural vision, security, notion of an enterprise cloud, range of capability and expertise of IBM Competitors are encouraging clients to “push” IBM How to questions - How will you deploy applications on Amazon Cloud? Azure Platform? Strategy questions – Does IBM have hosted cloud capability similar to Amazon? What is your ecosystem? Case Studies and References – Where else has this been done? 10

12 Financial Services Company builds a zTest cloud
Business Problem Solution Overview Phased pilot, with first phase completed in Q408. Use TSAM as the cloud management solution (incl. service management) in a pilot. Manage the deployment of distributed WAS ND instances on zLinux, z/VM, DASD. Implement and prove a set of scenarios: Instantiation of a distributed WAS ND cluster running on zLinux. Increase capacity of a WAS ND cluster service instance. Delete a WAS ND cluster service instance. Tangible results from Pilot: Simplified – Requires less interaction with developers to get a new WAS ND Cluster. Faster time-to-market for developed apps. 100% consistent deployment of environment Complex IT environments, lacking automation. This results in long lead times for requests, and high cost for deploying and managing environment. Little standardisation of configuration leading to quality issues and additional maintenance overhead. Want to improve audit results and IT compliance for development and test. Need to improve capacity without increasing cost Lessons Learned “Don’t eat the elephant in one go!” Set scope around a process not around a function – focus on the people and the skills to drive rapid implementation. This is transformative and crosses organizational boundaries. Executive sponsor support is vital. 12 12
