Demonstration overview

The real drivers for consolidation l.jpg
The ‘Real’ Drivers for Consolidation

Over 4 million Remote Offices Worldwide (growing 1/4million each year)

The average branch has between four and six servers(Source: Nemertes Research)

Current annual spend - $6 billion a year on branch servers, storage, back-up and management

It is estimated that each remote branch costs between $20,000 and $100,000

Unsurprisingly the single most powerful driver for data consolidation (Storage and Server) is cost reduction.(Source: IDC, Gartner, Cisco Analysis)


Results massive savings l.jpg
Results – Massive Savings !!!!

no servers, application licences at branch office - Lower Capex

less IT admin staff, no remote backups - Lower Opex

Improved data control – single instance of data to backup & permit real time collaboration of information

Over 75% of Fortune 500 CIO's surveyed listed consolidation as a top project

(Forrester Research)


The acronyms l.jpg
The ‘Acronyms’ ?

WAFs- TACIT – Brocade Tapestry (Packeteer)

WADs- Riverbed

WAAS- CISCO

Finally FANs ????????????


The technical problem with remote office performance l.jpg
The Technical Problem (with Remote Office performance)

Applications were designed and built on a LAN!

LAN’s usually do not have bandwidth or latency issues!

Same issues for RODC and VDI

Problem addressed in different ways since the app’s/protocols differ!


Techniques that deliver improve performance l.jpg
Techniques that deliver improve performance…

LATENCY

‘DATA is only sent ONCE’

CACHING FOR LOCAL DELIVERY

PREPOPULATION

AGGREGATION

VIRTUAL WINDOW EXPANSION


Latency l.jpg
LATENCY..............

Lets examine how latency can affect performance......


Remote consolidation performance is the issue l.jpg
RemoteConsolidation? Performance is the issue!

Bandwidth ………………No it is not the issue 

Due to the chatty nature of the application it is the latency that KILLS performance!

Therefore, by eliminating all unnecessary round-trips the application performance is dramatically improved.

1Mb doc. file creates on average 1300 RPC’s (each involving a round trip)

Latency

LAN Speed 1 –2msec………………..1.3 to 2.6sec

10msec………………………………13sec

25msec………………………………32.5sec

50msec………………………………1min 5sec

100msec……………………………..2 mins +

GARTNER-re WAFs Technology:

The benefits are measurable and sometimes even dramatic, with WAN access

for some applications reduced by as much as 90%



Vdi enabling the rdp performance l.jpg
VDI - Enabling the RDP Performance

Native Data

RDP Compressed

Appliance Optimised


The dns independent approach l.jpg
The DNS Independent Approach!

What is the ‘best-fit’ technology?

 Each Vendor has good WAFs performance improvement but what other applications is the customer running?

 So what differentiates them?


The differentiators l.jpg
The Differentiators ?

Branch Services

SMS Distribution

Security

Multi-Data Centre File Access

Other Appliance optimisation

QoS – VOIP



Sms distribution l.jpg
SMS Distribution?

Elegant Management?

Which technology l.jpg
Which Technology?

Understanding the requirements

Profiling the infrastructure!

Providing an unbiased recommendation as to the Vendor of choice!



Profiling the requirements l.jpg
Profiling the requirements!

  • Understanding the needs

  • Matching the most appropriate Vendor

  • Engaging via evaluation of solution –

  • Remember the customer very rarely buys ‘performance

  • enhancing technology’ without experiencing a ‘live’ evaluation

  • Short circuiting the sales cycle

Virtualisation sw companies vmware xensource market view aug 07 l.jpg
Virtualisation SW companies Vmware, XenSource– Market View Aug 07

  • VMware(EMC) Aug 14 IPO 10% of shares increase 76% largest opening day gain on 07, trading @ $55 the offer $29 per share

    • VMware 1Q sales 95% growth on track for $1bn +07

    • VMware Market Cap $19bn (Ford MC $17bn) – EMC paid $635m in 04

    • VMware sold stakes

    • 2.5% - $219m Intel

    • 1.6% - $150m Cisco

  • Aug 15 Citrix buys Xensource $500m, private company

    • (opinion is they have sales of less than $5m (some say less than $1m) the hypervisor is open source so where the IP for $500m ?

  • Aug 11 Global Stock Markets plunged due to the sub prime mortgages

    • Example FTSE 100 shed 10% from June high

  • The others

  • Microsoft Virtual Server (Connectix) new Hypervisor Longhorn 08/09

  • Virtual Iron open source Hypervisor do they get brought ?


Compelling reason to act l.jpg
Compelling Reason to Act Aug 07

  • Green Strategy

  • Compliance - Legislation and Regulation

  • Consolidation Workloads – Global DC TCO, Cost, Business Continuity

  • Business Growth Objectives sales/profit

  • Real Time Data for global market competitiveness – losing sales/profit

  • No more available electricity from that local sub station


Case study illustration investment bank in canary wharf l.jpg

Green Strategy Aug 07

Legislation and Regulation

Consolidation – no more DC space, £40m+ new DC

Business Growth – Exotics (Hedge)

Real Time Data for market competitive advantage – monte carlo prices

No more available electricity from that sub station – 2000 + blades no more electricity

Solution - lateral thinking move the paradigm - VDI

Physical to Virtual of Desktop

VMware on brick systems 4 socket best/earliest ROI

Power Saving £hundreds pa per seat

280 watts from desktop to datacentre

Follow the sun from same back end infrastructure 3 Geos

Blades purchased for Business Growth/Comp Adv – Bank makes rev/profit – funds VDI project

Case Study Aug 07

Peter Raybaud


250 000 in 9 weeks l.jpg
£250,000 in 9 weeks Aug 07

  • Local council requiring consolidation of 170 servers

    • Pain points

      • too many servers

      • lack of control of data

      • high management costs

      • green issues

  • New servers and VMWare from Dell

  • Passed to reseller quoting ”this may be a lost cause, but there could be some services”

  • Council agreed services content ( )

  • Discuss competitive consolidation ratios – sounds technical but can be very compelling

  • Sizing report – showing ROI and TCO for IBM solution

  • Hardware cheaper than Dell

  • Order placed - £170,000 of System X, total order value £235,000

  • Overall margin – 25%!!

  • Total timescale from start to finish = 9 weeks
