4 What is the cloud?

5 Personal iCloud DropBox Business Rackspace Amazon Google

6 Cost – Equipment cost, setup install, Scalability –quickly scale up or down Pay for what you need Allocate IT resources by department Shift responsibility

7 Amazon: “poor man’s public cloud” HP/Microsoft: Enterprise Public Cloud GoDaddy: What type of public cloud is this? How do we define these terms? Integrated Cloud and research issues

8 Review your company needs Email hosting Application services – Sharepoint, Financial Apps Storage capacity What are you trying to accomplish? Or needs to be met?

9 Company wants to maintain environment within the company network and maintains responsibility Cost to move to the public cloud Current infrastructure already in place

10 VM – virtual machine Three 9’s or four 9’s – high availability Clustering –shared resources Fault Tolerant-redundancy fail-over Shared services MTTR – Mean Time to Recover

11 11 Traditional Architecture Virtual Architecture



14 Select a pre-configured, templated image to get up and running immediately. Or create an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) containing your applications, libraries, data, and associated configuration settings. Configure security and network access on your Amazon EC2 instance. Choose which instance type(s) and operating system you want, then start, terminate, and monitor as many instances of your AMI as needed, using the web service APIs or the variety of management tools provided. Determine whether you want to run in multiple locations, utilize static IP endpoints, or attach persistent block storage to your instances. Pay only for the resources that you actually consume, like instance- hours or data transfer.

15 VMware - vCenter, vOperation Management ChargeBack Microsoft Hypervisor Citrix – thin desktops Monitor – Solarwinds

16 Hardware cannot support, legacy. Security concerns Management approval Responsibility 16

17 Monster VM – new memory, processor, and hardware limits –1TB RAM on VM (4.1 255GB) –32 vCPU (4.1 8 vCPU) –16 NIC (4.1 10 NIC) –(See what’s New in Vmware Vsphere 5 link) –Better Network I/O Control – More granular –enforcement (Noisy Neighbor limits)

18 Elastic – Amazon EC2 enables you to increase or decrease capacity within minutes, not hours or days. – You can commission one, hundreds or even thousands of server instances simultaneously. – controlled with web service APIs, application can automatically scale itself up and down depending on its needs.

19 Security in depth - Firewalls –active checking packets, - Network security – isolation, intrusion detection, - virtual private network – VLAN - Application security - Security review – annual

20 Amazon EC2 includes web service interfaces to configure firewall settings that control network access to and between groups of instances. When launching Amazon EC2 resources within Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), you can isolate your compute instances by specifying the IP range you wish to use, and connect to your existing IT infrastructure using industry-standard encrypted IPsec VPN.Amazon Virtual Private Cloud You can also choose to launch Dedicated Instances into your VPC. Dedicated Instances are Amazon EC2 Instances that run on hardware dedicated to a single customer for additional isolation.Dedicated Instances

21 Company COOP or backup New and Critical applications Consolidation of hardware or remote sites Hardware/software replacement
