  4. 4. Changing IT Model
  5. 5. Data Center Challenges Through strategic acquisitions, Cordant Group grew from 4 to 12 data centers in two years – Scattered across the UK – Each location comprising application servers, file storage and associated DR solutions – Costly to maintain in both time & money
  6. 6. Data Center Challenges Infrastructure consolidation only went so far – Reduced infrastructure from 12 to 3 (Primary, secondary, and DR sites) • Via VMware virtualization and NetApp enterprise storage • CIFS datastores and NFS storage plus Citrix Provisioning Services Datastores (for XenApp 6.5) – Still had challenges with scalability • Only scale to available rack space
  7. 7. Changing IT Model: Considering the Cloud • Needed a more flexible IT environment – Scalability – Regional coverage – Application uptime flexibility to manage cost • Cloud provider needed to be stable and trusted • Require local provider data centers to meet EU regulatory mandates • The Choice:
  8. 8. Making the Transition
  9. 9. Top Focus Areas Moving to AWS • Application requirements – Applications: Citrix, Legacy Applications, SQL, File Storage – Data Format: NFS & CIFS • Minimize application impacts – Find solution that does not require a complete overhaul of applications – No direct replacement for data format in cloud
  10. 10. Multi-data center solution for availability and protection Pre-Cloud Application Architecture Data Center 1 Data Center 2 London & Hillingdon Data Centers Data Center 1 iSCSI NFS CIFS Replicate Data (SnapMirror®) Data Center 2 iSCSI NFS CIFS Backup/Archive Location
  11. 11. Data Storage Technology Testing • Started with off-the-shelf AWS capabilities – SQL Database  RDS • Data format compatibility troubles • Required heavy application changes to use RDS • Shifted focus to external solutions – NetApp CIFS  Microsoft DFS • DFS environment had limitations • Increased sysadmin support – NetApp Data ONTAP  NetApp Cloud ONTAP • Provided familiar NFS environment that allowed attaching iSCSI attached local drives to support virtual SQL instances • Integrated SQL tools allowed data protection schema to remain
  12. 12. EBS EBS EBS Expand your storage options in the cloud NetApp Cloud ONTAP Data Center  NetApp clustered Data ONTAP on EC2  Available directly from AWS Marketplace  Enterprise storage in minutes  Same capabilities as data center storage  Multiprotocol, storage efficiency, Zero footprint snapshots and clones SnapMirror® NetApp OnCommand® Management Suite Insight Unified Manager System Manager Cloud Manager Manage and monitor cloud storage both in the cloud and on-site iSCSI NFS CIFS
  13. 13. Multi-region application coverage Applications Architecture: AWS AWS Availability Zone 1 AWS Availability Zone 2 AWS Region 2 EUCentral AWS Region 1 (EU West) Replicate Data (SnapMirror®)EBS EBS EBS iSCSI NFS CIFSiSCSI NFS CIFS
  14. 14. Results • Citrix farm running Microsoft SQL on AWS leveraging data protection with SnapDrive and SnapManager for SQL • Multi-AZ production in EUWest backed up to EUCentral • Production environment now capable of cloud scale • Cloud ONTAP simplified workload migration to AWS – No application redesign – Same data store formats on CIFS and NFS – Same data management as data center storage
  15. 15. Future Plans
  16. 16. Future AWS Direction • Acquisitions expanding site footprint to Americas, AU, APAC, etc. • AWS data centers provide needed GEO coverage
