  4. 4. Rob Wood Portsmouth City Council @portsmouthtoday #scotcloud
  5. 5. The Cloud Landscape - My Background ROB WOOD – CTO (contract to multi clients), CITY COUNCILLOR • The Ask: “Can you speak as warm-up @ Scot-Cloud “ { me thinks “young gun go for it!” } • Then: “as you’ve been around a while and know ‘the old stuff’!” { “ok – youngish old gun ramble on!” } • Involved in IT and Software then Cloud developments since 1988 { “a personal view of that journey” } Retailer Developer 1980 1990 2000 2010 PrincipalTech CityCouncillor CTOcontractor Director The “Cloud”
  6. 6. The Cloud Landscape - Past Popular Cultural View “GREAT SCOTT MARTY! - Everything in the Future is CONNECTED to that Cloud !” • The Cloud as a metaphor for being Connected • Not the rise of Machine, Nor Machine induced Virtual Reality – BUT the rise of Social Media induced Reality! Rise of Machine vs Induced Virtual Reality Worse! Rise of Social Media! I’ll be back again and again unless you like me
  7. 7. The Cloud Landscape - 1980s Cloud 0.01: Modem RETAIL Commerce advantage was to connect your business Tech Infrastructure was poor!” • Programmed ZX Spectrum to print POS receipts used Acoustic Modem to transfer stock position between branches • Painfully slow but Business need was a Driver Technology was not there yet. + + = POS Receipts Stock Control
  8. 8. The Cloud Landscape - 2000s Cloud 1-2.0: The Web RETAIL Commerce advantage to connect Customers and Businesses Real-Time !” • Leasing companies phone around if vehicle not in stock – Complex, Inefficient, Poor Customer experience. • LEASELINK put details in one place on the Cloud enabling simultaneous multiple views / tick box actions. • Initially like watching paint dry. Consumers drove bandwidth. Now Europe’s No. 1 Vehicle Procurement Hub. 1. “Black only” No 2. “Not Leather” No Ready? “I’d like a RED Ferrari with white leather” 3. “Maserati only” Yes 1. “Black only” X 2. “Not Leather” X Ready? “I’d like a RED Ferrari with white leather” 3. “Maserati only” Ready OLD sequential and 1-on-1 NEW simultaneous and real-time
  9. 9. The Cloud Landscape - Today: The Cloud NO BRAINERS One-Stop Services, Slick Business2Businesses APIs, Multi-Channels / Devices” • Public Sector simplifying Web Access to Information & Services for Multi-channels, Self-Service help One-Stop Shop. • Businesses simplifying Consumer experience of multiple products and services by joining them all up • Still an issue around Data. Is it joined up, who owns it, where is it being stored. Blockchain may provide an answer. Core App uses APIs Post-Code Lookup HPI Registaration Lookup Credit Ratings Online Policy Registrations Online Policy Contracts Online Product Selections Online Money Transactions Online e- signatures via email BLOCKCHAIN?
  10. 10. The Cloud Landscape - The Future Cloud EVERYTHING GETS MORE CONNECTED As infrastructure allows perfect storm Consumer Technology” • Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual and Enhanced Technology, Blockchain on Improved Infrastructure . • Businesses need to be ready for Consumer experience of their products and services or fall by the way. • Security and Privacy of data will be an issue. Give me my sausages! I wouldn’t cook them as Fridge says No! I can give you a virtual eating experience? I have some in stock I can sell You can only afford them next week No! They’re out of date

  60. 60. Addressing the skills gap from both sides • Employees • Stretch your current role where possible. • Learn outside of job. Courses, certifications, open source contributing, home projects. It’s not expensive! • Passion & emersion in technology even if you don’t currently use it in work. • Attend conferences, meet-ups, hackathons, workshops. • Learn ‘one of’ every essential tool. • Practice best practice (Git workflow, Kanban, even by yourself). • Be honest and acknowledge skill gaps. • Be realistic on salary & benefits.
  61. 61. Addressing the skills gap from both sides • Employers • Recognise potential and take more chances • Scrap technical tests from your interview process • Masters of all rarely exist, don’t advertise for them • Be realistic on salary & benefits • Pay what someone is worth, not just a little more than their last job • Recognise development and promote accordingly • Provide meaningful feedback to the candidate
  62. 62. Other ways? • Government-supported initiatives • CodeClan(.com) • “All you need is a willingness to learn, a passion for technology and to think like a problem solver.” • Any age, new student or career pivot • 16-week intensive course resulting in Professional Development Award. • Self-funded • Traditional Universities? • Cost vs. Reward • Traditional Computer Science vs. Cloud Computing • AWS can’t keep their own certification tests up to date!

  121. 121. Disaster Recovery and The Cloud Some thoughts on DR in the new Cloud Landscape
  122. 122. • Disaster recovery (DR) involves a set of policies and procedures to enable the recovery or continuation of vital technology infrastructure and systems following a natural or human-induced disaster. • Disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems supporting critical business functions, as opposed to business continuity, which involves keeping all essential aspects of a business functioning despite significant disruptive events. • Disaster recovery is therefore a subset of business continuity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disaster_recovery Are we sure we know what DR is?
  123. 123. Disaster recovery plans are put in place for natural disasters, as well as disasters caused by human and technical error. The solutions are a set of processes, policies and procedures that handle the preparation for recovery or continuation of critical technological infrastructure during and after the occurrence of disasters. Jennifer Klostermann, CloudTweaks The key point here is that you can’t always avoid a disaster. By definition almost they are things you cannot control. Okay, so what if I just avoid having disasters?
  124. 124. • Peter de Tender, Microsoft Infrastructure Expert, discusses the impact of disasters on businesses, leveraging statistics from formal sources: • More than 70% of businesses affected by a major disaster are either unable to reopen their business, or close within 18 months of the disaster. • 80% of businesses without a disaster recovery plan that suffer a data center disaster go out of business. • Gartner Inc. found that within two years of experiencing data loss, 90% of companies go out of business. • These dire figures make the necessity of a disaster recovery plan for every business certain. So that’s what it is, why should I care?
  125. 125. Its important to make sure we acknowledge what DR “isn’t”. You’ll often hear: • We Backup! • Backup isn’t DR in itself but forms part of a DR plan • We replicate! • This is great but again isn’t DR but forms part of a DR plan • “I have a spare box in the office where I copy stuff to which I could use in a pinch if my £1.2million IT environment falls through a hole in the earth” • Well ok this isn’t DR but… you get the idea. The pattern is obvious: DR often needs to be a whole kitbag of tools to be successful. Okay, so now I’m scared. But I have backup!
  126. 126. Any DR plan needs to form part of your overall Business Continuity (BC) Planning. DR planning and execution can’t be done in isolation but does form one of the cornerstones of your BC plan. There are four pillars holding up the plan: • Identify and catalogue the IT services you provide to your customers (both internal and external) • Understand the risk to your business of those services becoming unavailable for any reason • Understand your RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective) • Choose the right technologies So how do I create THE PLAN?
  127. 127. Organisations have had decades of experience in planning for disaster recovery. • We know where the tapes are kept. • We have spare server hardware on hand. • We’ve protected installation media in a fire safe. • We have off-site copies of key backups. • And – if we’re smart – we’ve made plans with an alternate facility to host services after a loss. But there’s a problem here: These are the decades-old plans of a decades-old IT industry. Okay, but we’ve got a traditional DR plan in place
  128. 128. • The public cloud provides a great opportunity for IT departments to implement a business continuity/disaster recovery, or BC/DR, plan without having to go to the expense of building out a dedicated data center. The cloud can be used as a basic data repository or even as the location to run applications when primary systems go down. • More than this of course is the realisation that by moving your primary apps to the cloud, DR can be the responsibility of someone else. • There are a range of approaches and toolsets which can help your DR planning. How can the Cloud help?
  129. 129. • There are multiple service offerings available in the market today for implementing cloud DR. • These range from pure replication tools that get the data or VM image into the cloud, through to fully managed DR as a service (DRaaS) capabilities. • Points to consider: • Location: Where will my data be? Is there a latency issue or a sovereignty issue here? • Networking: Latency to a remote DR location or service can be an issue for some businesses • Failover/Failback considerations: How easy is it for me to have a disaster and fix it at the push of a button? Choosing the right service
  130. 130. • A full DR solution requires everything you have in your IT environment to be replicated physically and logically. This is expensive and can be wasteful where there are a range of workloads being protected. • If your planning for DR has shown a sliding scale of criticality you’ll often be able to choose a range of tools to fit each step on the scale which allow you to focus on the most critical services first. • Adopting Cloud services for DR can be a gradual process starting at any point in your journey to DR. • You don’t have to move everything to the Cloud to enhance your service availability How far do I go?
  131. 131. • The easiest first step there are a range of Cloud backup tools which can integrate into your on-premise or hosted solution • Immediate benefits are many: • More complex and resilient back-end architecture is in place with Cloud backup solutions • No requirement for discrete backup systems • Cloud backup services still agent based but come with full, centralised control panel automation • No hardware required – you often only pay for the storage costs with the software costs embedded • No growth limits – you can retain that data longer where required • Storage Tiering – the implications of long term storage are often addressed by Cloud backup vendors Cloud Backup
  132. 132. • There are a range of tools with varying degrees of complexity and value to the customer • Modern Cloud DRaaS solutions are vendor agnostic allowing you to replicate multiple Operating Systems and workload • Many replication tools allow you to replicate to any target of your choice meaning you don’t need multiple solutions to complete the same task • Can be passive but many Cloud replication tools allow the replicated targets to become LIVE instances in the event of a major failure event • A mix of source machines can exist under the same replication system – physical and virtual • Some replication products have very aggressive replication scheduling allowing for a much smaller RPO Replication to the Cloud
  133. 133. • The most exciting trends for using Cloud for DR is the ability to truly hybridise your on-premise solution with a public Cloud solution • Key technologies include: • Microsoft Azure Site Recovery or ASR • Automated protection and replication of existing Microsoft based environments • Replicate and Recover directly into Azure • Customisable recovery plans • No downtime recovery testing • Replication to AWS • Starts with storage and backup • Expands to allow interaction with all AWS services • Needs Pilot Light environment to bring the appropriate levels of failover speed • Can fully integrate with your own orchestration tools and methodologies Environment Hybridisation
  134. 134. • One of the areas of greatest growth currently with Application vendors is the growth in SaaS solutions and versions of their software being provided as full SaaS or at least Platform as a Service with some massive benefits • No architecture requirement onsite to be part of your DR plan • Existing tools your teams use daily • Resilience and DR built into the platform • Cost often simpler and easier to define than under traditional IT builds • Often certified above the levels of your own IT environments • Can be issues with where the data is at rest • Removes vendor lock in after initial investment Software as a Service
  135. 135. • Its complicated, isn’t it? • But Cloud can give you a range of options to enhance your DR plan • Cloud can make DR cheaper and more efficient • Cloud can keep your business running no matter what happens Conclusion
