  9. Opportunities in Testing Confidential 9

  10. Characteristics of Cloud Services Provider Consumer On-demand, self service Highly automated provisioning Volume and economies of scale Billing, metering, variable pricing Location independent availability Policy-driven management Security for access and data Rapid access and control Quick time-to-implement Low cap-ex Pay as you go Ubiquitous network access Service level agreement Trust Confidential 10

  11. Cloud Computing models • Target: End users • Collaborative applications • Content applications • Enterprise resource management ERM), customer resource management (CRM), supply chain applications • Operations and manufacturing applications • Engineering applications  Software as a Service  • Target: Developers • App development software • Databases & server middleware • Enterprise portals • Customer-created applications Platform as a Service  Cloud Computing infrastructure as a service • Target: Developers, System Admins • Customer-selected operating systems, virtualization, and file systems • Servers, storage, and networking Source: Clouds and Beyond, Frank Gens, IDC, 2009 Confidential 11

  12. Potential Benefits and Concerns Cloud Cloud Private Public • Control over security, data, availability • Investment protection • Legacy integration • Minimal capital requirements, no upfront risk/commitments • Agility • Efficiencies of vast scale • Capex still required • Agility • Security • Regulatory concerns Confidential 12

  13. However you define the cloud, we believe: Traditional Virtualized Private Cloud Public Cloud Today Self-Service Portal Dynamic Resource Pooling Workload Lifecycle Management Usage Based Billing/Chargeback 3–5 Years from now Orchestration … 1. Building on Virtualization 2. Greenfield Solutions Confidential 13

  14. Dell delivers uncompromised solutions to meet our customer needs globally Open Capable Affordable Capable means solutions that have innovative, even surprising, functionality that meets customer needs Affordable means solutions that customers can acquire and manage within their financial reality and reflect Dell’s pragmatic DNA Open means solutions that are flexible and don’t lock customers in, although may be based on unique Dell technology No Lock-In Expect the Best Sensible Approach 14 14 Dell Confidential

  15. Building Blocks: Virtualization Given the challenges most enterprises face, one of the best paths to the cloud is virtualized infrastructure.

  16. Virtualization is Mainstream • Virtualization market will grow to $15B+ by 2010! • More than three-quarters of all companies with 500+ employees today are deploying virtual servers. • Customer satisfaction is high • Survey respondents currently using server virtualization technologies report that they expect 45% of new servers purchased next year will be virtualized. • More than 50% of all virtual servers are running production level applications, including the most business critical workloads • Source: IDC Confidential 16

  17. Using Virtualization in Testing • Enable More Testing With Existing Resources • Multiple applications and operating systems can be supported within a single physical system • Computing resources can be pooled and allocated based on business needs • Instant Test Sandboxes • Virtual machines are completely isolated from the host machine and other virtual machines so if a virtual machine crashes, all others are unaffected • Data does not leak across virtual machines and applications can only communicate over configured network connections • Centralized Configuration Management • Standardized virtualized hardware is presented to the application to ensure compatibility Confidential 17

  18. Virtual Lab Automation • Self-service provisioning • Enables multiple test organizations to share pool of test resource capacity • Monitoring, allocation and adjustment of capacity as needed • Detailed reporting on lab usage and tracking • Collaboration and workflow • Browser access from work, home, offshore locations • Multiple deployment instances of the same test configuration without conflict • Resource scheduling and capacity planning • Snapshot environments to rapidly collaborate and resolve defects • Integration with Test Automation tools • Request specific configurations from within test scripts • Enables fully automated test cycles • Allows standardized deployment of testing tools Confidential 18
