Achieving Cloud Relevance

  1. 1. Achieving Cloud Relevance
  2. 2. Poised For New Heights Cloud computing holds the promise of elevating IT within the enterprise by addressing the need for rapid service delivery. Today, clouds can be implemented in a variety of ways: private, public, and hybrid. This combination places IT in the unique role of being a service broker, enabling it to provide a range of service delivery options. This allows applications and data to be placed in the appropriate locations based on unique business requirements. 2
  3. 3. Cloud types: public, private, hybrid The mix of cloud services makes IT a critical service broker, enabling it to deliver multiple application and data delivery options to the right place with the right requirements. Public clouds IT resources are shared across multiple organizations and are managed externally. Private clouds IT resources are dedicated to one organization. Hybrid clouds A mix of public and private clouds are managed singularly, yet able to expand as needed. 3
  4. 4. How does IT keep up with end-user demands? Obtaining services that deliver value and enable task completion efficiently is as easy as downloading an application or opening a public cloud service provider account. Market dynamics and recent technology advancements have fundamentally changed user expectations. As a result, end users are tapping the public cloud as a shadow IT department to meet their needs faster and more efficiently. 4
  5. 5. IT is now in a critical role of IT service broker, enabling it to provide a range of service delivery options so applications and data can be placed in the appropriate locations based on business requirements. Grasp the answer, embrace the cloud Find the right delivery options: On-demand Self service Broad network access Resource pooling Rapid elasticity Measured service 5
  6. 6. Provide data center virtualization By consolidating many virtual machines onto one physical server, organizations can improve efficiency when provisioning and deprovisioning servers. 6
  7. 7. A cloud automation solution needs to automate the end-to-end service delivery process Many solutions don’t automate the whole process and require manual intervention. To maximize efficiency, automating should address the entire process. 7
  8. 8. Provide self-service convenience while still maintaining control It’s important for IT to personalize self service access while still maintaining governance and controls to meet business-specific needs. 8
  9. 9. The technology must work with the organization’s existing tools, infrastructure, and processes to extend beyond IT service provisioning. Full life-cycle management is critical for moving beyond manually operating processes in silos. This includes reprovisioning, reconfiguring, snapshotting, backing up, decommissioning, and archival tasks. Customization is key Find the right delivery options: More staff time to dedicate to strategic responsibilities Increased system administrator productivity Reduced organizational capital expenses Optimized computing resources on a company-wide level 9
  10. 10. VMware Cloud Automation can help by: 1: Bringing modern capabilities Automation ensures executives can respond to and align IT with increased business needs. 2: Empowering administrators Admins can rapidly automate, standardize, and govern the entire process of cloud services delivery. 3: Accelerating deployment All service deployment is accelerated, providing control needed to leverage public cloud resources where appropriate. 4: Integrating IT infrastructure service offerings Economics, speed of IT infrastructure, operations, and applications are restructured to pool siloed resources into one infrastructure service offering to different teams across the business. 10
  11. 11. Case Study: Dow Jones & Company
  12. 12. Dow Jones & Company The enterprise saw the need for a cloud automation solution when IT delivery resources failed to meet demand after a virtual infrastructure attempt. Dow Jones evaluated automation software based on several criteria: Ability to unify public and private cloud resource management Flexibility to integrate into the Dow Jones environment Scalability Cost effectiveness Speed to deployment 12
  13. 13. Using the VMware solution in the cloud environment, Dow Jones standardized and automated its process to get more control over IT resource deployment. VMware vCloud Automation Center met all requirements “With VMware, we have reduced the time needed to deploy virtual machines, as well as the effort of individuals required to focus on manual steps to provision. This is saving money by refocusing toward strategic activities rather than building servers.” Altaf Tupani, Vice President of Global Systems, Dow Jones 13
