4 Reference Architectures
“A Reference Architecture is an authoritative source of information about a specific subject area that guides and constrains the instantiations of multiple architectures and solutions” The DoD‐wide Reference Architecture provides information, guidance, and direction that is applicable across DoD. This information, guidance, and direction are provided in the five (5) elements that comprise a Reference Architecture: Strategic Purpose – Identifies goals and objectives of the Reference Architecture and describes the specific purpose of and the problem(s) to be addressed by the Reference Architecture. Principles – Sufficient high level foundational statements of rules, culture, and values that drive technical positions and patterns. Technical Positions – Technical guidance and standards, based on specified principles that need to be followed and implemented as part of the solution. Patterns (Templates) – Generalized architecture representations (viewpoints, graphical/textual models, diagrams, etc.) that show relationships between elements and artifacts specified by the technical positions. Vocabulary – Acronyms, terms, and definitions that are used in the Reference Architecture and are relevant to architectures and solutions that are guided and constrained by the Reference Architecture.

6 DoD Information Enterprise Architecture
Purpose: Unifies the concepts embedded in the DoD’s net-centric strategies into common vision Describes the integrated Defense Information Enterprise and the rules for information assets and resources that enable it Fosters alignment of DoD architectures with the enterprise net-centric vision Integration of NCOW RM content Appendix D: Applying the DoD IEA Appendix E: Compliance with the DoD IEA Appendix G: Requirements for Compliance to the DoD EA Available at: UNCLASSIFIED 6

8 IT Enterprise Strategy & Roadmap

9 Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI)
OMB Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative memo dated 2/26/2010 Overall goals are: Green IT – reduce overall energy and real estate footprint Reduce cost of data center hardware, software and operations Increase overall IT security posture of government; and Shift IT investments to more efficient computing platforms and technologies Deliverables Initial Asset Inventory: High-level understanding of scale and size of existing data centers, IT infrastructure assets, and applications. Initial Data Center Consolidation Plan: Potential areas for consolidation. High-level roadmap for transitioning to consolidated end-state architecture. Final Asset Inventory Baseline: Foundation for developing final data center consolidation plans. Final Data Center Consolidation Plan: Technical roadmap and approach for achieving the targets for infrastructure utilization, energy efficiency, and cost efficiency. Next Steps Ongoing Monitoring: Report inventory annually by Q3 of each FY; consolidation plan execution progress quarterly, and reflect changes in asset inventories and account for execution of data center consolidation plans in budgets.

10 Today’s Data Center Environment
DISA USAF DON USA Data Center to Stay Open to be Closed Regional/Component Data Centers Optimized by Services/Agencies to Gain Efficiencies UNCLASSIFIED

11 Data Center Optimization
Global Footprint Data Centers will be closed, by repositioning servers and virtualizing, while simultaneously establishing a Federation of Resilient CORE Data Centers with Robust Inter-connectivity and Global Accessibility CORE Data Centers would be Exemplar Data Center Standard Compliant Supporting “Cloud Computing” based Foundational & Common Enterprise Services UNCLASSIFIED

12 Data Center & Server Consolidation Reference Architecture (DC&SC RA)
Defines & standardizes attributes for Core DoD Computing Centers integrating DoD cloud and server virtualization concepts, rules & standards Defines cloud delivery mechanisms (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) for DoD Enterprise Services Leverages Defense ITIL for management of the GIG Computing Environment DC&SC RA Version 1.0 is scheduled for release in Q2FY12 Conceptual Core Computing Center UNCLASSIFIED 12 12

13 Network Optimization RA (NORA) Purposes & Objectives
Army Navy Marine Corps Air Force Other DISN Backbone Network Enclaves Common Network Army Navy Marine Corps Air Force Other DISN Backbone Today’s Network Infrastructure… Comprised of various special purpose networks managed by multiple CC/S/As Designed to provide dedicated access to specific services for a specific subset of users Challenges of this infrastructure… Each enclave is managed independently with their own resources (manpower, hardware, and software) and processes (C&A, NetOps) resulting in duplicative effort and underutilized capacity Multiple enclaves increase the boundary of threat due to multiple points of presence An authorized user on one network may not be a recognized user on another A user on one network does not readily have access to systems/applications on another network NORA describes a virtual enterprise network that enables: 1) the seamless sharing of information from anywhere in the enterprise and 2) the establishment of mission-ready COIs. Purpose Support network infrastructure policy makers and providers in evolving their infrastructures to function more as a seamless and efficient enterprise network Objectives Provide network infrastructure guidance to support the identification of material/ program efficiencies Provide guidance for optimally federating and consolidating network infrastructures, owned my multiple providers, to support a seamless enterprise network Define, and establish minimum baseline capabilities for, DoD enterprise connectivity services that connect authorized users and data environments to and across the Information Enterprise infrastructure
