Hybrid / Federated

Monday, February 13, 2012

primary use cases
Primary use cases

On boarding

Migrate existing application/workloads to cloud

Fastest, most cost effective, systematic way to get on a cloud


Continuous and incremental “On boarding”

Cloud busting

No lock-in

Cloud protection: instance, region, vendor

Enterprise App Store

Dynamic catalog image assembly

Linear vs. exponential image management

ISV distribution

Pre-installed, pre-configured software distribution

Fastest time to deployment

Reusable demo/poc, pre-configured implementations

  • Hybrid will be the end state where the enterprise will have plain old data centers, private clouds, privately hosted clouds and public clouds
    • Security concerns will prohibit run your business application from migrating to Amazon like clouds
    • Migrating apps to clouds will slow transition from data center stacks to clouds
    • Hybrid/Federated will add complexity to app lifecycle
  • To realize the cost saving, elasticity and agility of cloud computing application lifecycle cost need to mitgated

Hybrid / Federated
  • “The Cloud”, like “The Datacenter”, is a collective noun
  • Already multiple datacenters, will have even more “clouds”
    • Traditional drivers of DC fragmentation/location still apply
      • Regional LOB, Regulatory Compliance, M&A, Offshore & Outsource
    • Public and Private clouds accelerate fragmentation
      • Ease of sourcing, faster lifecycles, “seasonal” or yearly realignment
      • More opportunity, and pressure, to switch based on pricing or cost
    • Competing “cloud products”, and platform-attached “clouds”
      • Single-vendor sourcing, even for private clouds, is not realistic

…Oh, and IT app-release teams were already struggling to meet release SLAs and budgets, deploying to a few, wholly owned, largely homogeneous datacenters…

key issues
Key Issues
  • Analogous issues to migration, only continuous
    • Ongoing cycle of release, upgrade, trouble ticket, hotfix
  • Higher deployment volumes, stricter SLAs
    • Over 1000 deployments/month for a large enterprise
    • SLAs often 4-6 hours from dev to package, distribute, and deploy
  • VM image packaging even less practical
    • Application dev/release/support staff need to be self-sufficient
    • Can’t transfer 1000 VMs/mo from London to Singapore over WAN
    • Can’t create separate images for every locale, compliance, etc.
    • Application teams wouldn’t know how anyway…

app lifecycle scripting vs as an image
App lifecycle scripting vs. as an image


As a VAA

Captures changes on production machine

State is moveable

No programming required

Reuse via layering

Isolated from cloud operational stacks

Image size is small

  • No round-trip with production machine
  • Programming and content development is costly and time consuming
  • Content locked-in to automation platform
  • Reuse is low
  • Federated targets need to be designed in

WAMP.VAA 50MB (pre-provisioned)

Wordpress.VAA 10MB

Move time

  • Chicago to Virginia 7 minutes
  • Virginia to German 9 minutes

Seamless integrated secure network

Alternative approaches:

  • VM image 50GB
  • Move time
    • Chicago to Virginia 5 days
    • Virginia to German 6 days
  • VM 5000 times slower then provisioning VAA
  • Reinstall, migrate application data
    • Move time manual scripting per application
    • Labor intensive, error prone
