2 How to approach your journey to the Software-Defined Data Center? When he described Facebook s operating philosophy as move fast with a stable infrastructure, Mark Zuckerberg could have been defining the template for today s most successful and prosperous enterprises. But for CIOs who must deliver this vision, the task is challenging: How will I create and manage an infrastructure that is flexible, scalable and secure, yet easy to manage? How can I help the business respond with speed and agility to changing business demands, and accelerate time to market? How should I create innovative business models, go to market strategies and supplier relationships? How can IT strengthen competitive advantage by enabling the business to offer attractive, differentiated services? And of course, traditional demands like operational excellence, trust, compliance, and delivering an impeccable customer experience remain as relevant as ever. Is software-defined architecture the answer? Many CIOs are evaluating how a software-defined approach to the data center can help achieve their challenging objectives. This white paper will help enterprise and public sector CIOs to recognize the opportunity presented by the Digital Data Center from Atos. It will demonstrate how the Digital Data Center from Atos offers an immediate opportunity for CIOs to realize their vision for an agile, responsive and affordable Software-Defined Data Center. Realize your software-defined vision with the Digital Data Center from Atos 2

3 Digital Data Center: the right vision at the right time The Software-Defined Data Center is VMware s blueprint for a fully-automated data center in which server, network and compute are virtualized and managed by software. VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger describes the Software-Defined Data Center as delivering more availability, higher utilization, lower cost, unlimited scalability, greater speed in developing applications and provisioning technology services, and the agility to reconfigure and repurpose infrastructure as the business needs. He continues the essence of Software-Defined Data Center is automation. The software layer replaces management with automation to further increase operational simplicity. Things happen fast and changes are made with a minimum of human intervention. That s what makes the Software-Defined Data Center such a powerful driver of innovation and agility in today s dynamic digital world. Time to accelerate But in describing the Software-Defined Data Center as an evolving architectural and operational philosophy, not a product that you can buy that has a demonstrated return on investment (ROI) 1, Forrester highlight why the Software-Defined Data Center may not meet the needs of enterprises with an urgent need for greater agility and a sharper competitive edge. The Digital Data Center from Atos is the Software-Defined Data Center as-a-service With Atos organizations can enjoy the compelling benefits of the Software-Defined Data Center right away by consuming them as-a-service. The Digital Data Center from Atos combines four technologies: existing server virtualization, software-defined networking, software-defined storage and management/automation. All elements of the data center, including networking, storage and compute are virtualized and delivered as a managed service. The control layer is abstracted from the physical layer, enabling dynamic provisioning of data center resources based upon software and policies. As a result, the data center can react to the speed of enterprise requirements, and businesses can easily match data center resources to application workloads. A Digital Data Center from Atos project spans expert Atos Advisory, Design, Build and Transformation services, as well as the Digital Data Center managed service itself. This end-to-end approach ensures CIOs gain the maximum possible business value for their investment. That s where the Digital Data Center from Atos comes in. 1 Forrester, The Software Defined Data Center is Still A Work in Progress, August 2014 Realize your software-defined vision with the Digital Data Center from Atos 3

4 Enable unprecedented infrastructure automation The Digital Data Center from Atos replaces slower, more expensive, less automated processes with policy-based automation. It enables CIOs and their teams to move towards a service catalogue model, so that users and internal customers can self-serve quickly and easily without waiting for bespoke configurations for every new workload. With greater automation comes a significantly reduced risk of human error; and less likelihood of costly service interruptions. So the business can deliver the innovative, highly available that satisfy customers and maximize revenues. Traditional Data Center vs. the Digital Data Center from Atos Traditional Data Center Digital Data Center Software Layer Manual Operations Orchestration Layer (common to cloud) Automated Policy Based Operations Property Hardware Intelligence Software Layer Intelligence Network/Storage/Sercurity/Server Commodity Hardware In Gartner s view, software-defined environments like the Digital Data Center from Atos enables agility through policy-based automation of the data center and facilities infrastructure. [It] separates management controls and services from the hardware infrastructure, thus potentially enabling infrastructure automation and optimization innovations in the software layer. 2 The Digital Data Center from Atos replaces slow, costly and error-prone manual processes with policy-based automation. 2 Gartner, What Is the Value of a Software-Defined Data Center? 10 September 2014 Realize your software-defined vision with the Digital Data Center from Atos 4

5 Accelerate time to market In a business climate where products and services evolve at relentless pace, data centers are under pressure to move away from a monolithic delivery capability unable to handle projects requiring greater speed, innovation or more focus on risk management. 3 The Digital Data Center from Atos helps CIOs deliver services at true enterprise speed. With management and control elevated to the software layer, IT teams benefit from portable workflows that move seamlessly between environments from development to production, consolidating production and testing workloads on the same infrastructure. In addition, the Digital Data Center from Atos is specifically designed for fast initial setup, smooth growth and rapid scalability. So as well as offering an immediate solution to the frustration of inflexible infrastructure, the Digital Data Center from Atos enables businesses to expand and grow with ease, for example when extending the branch network. And with everything managed at the software layer, change and expansion are always straightforward to manage. As well as offering an immediate solution to the frustration of inflexible infrastructure, the Digital Data Center from Atos enables businesses to expand and grow with ease. 3 Gartner, The Three Data Center Personalities Necessary for Your Digital Business, February 2015 Realize your software-defined vision with the Digital Data Center from Atos 5

6 Revolutionize infrastructure agility and flexibility The demand for more responsive and agile infrastructure is inspiring CIOs to explore new sourcing models. Gartner recommend before selecting Software-Defined Data Center solutions, know your agility, operational efficiency and cost containment drivers, deploying Software-Defined Data Center opportunistically and in a phased manner, to meet your needs. 4 And their top consideration? The first is agility: How quickly can business units source technology infrastructure to meet business objectives? 5 Because it s designed to offer a non-disruptive roll-out, and to work out-of-the box, the Digital Data Center from Atos immediately impacts the areas of your data center that impede flexibility. So you can: Make better use of hardware and software investments, and improve the agility of virtualized legacy applications Remove the need to redesign or re-architect applications Enable the consolidation of servers, network, storage and security Span VMware-based cloud environments in a hybrid model Reduce maintenance windows and enable effective failure containment As a result, CIOs and their teams will be in a strong position to consistently deliver the agility and flexibility the business demands. How the Digital Data Center from Atos paves the way to your Cloud journey Based on the latest, most advanced virtualization capabilities, the Digital Data Center from Atos is designed to help you manage resources more flexibly, and to lay the foundations for IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS environments and services. Integrating seamlessly with Atos Canopy Cloud and other VMware cloud-based platforms, it s a powerfully effective way to drive maximum value from your hybrid cloud environment. before selecting Software-Defined Data Center solutions, know your agility, operational efficiency and cost containment drivers, deploying Software-Defined Data Center opportunistically and in a phased manner Gartner, September Gartner, September Forrester, Key I&O Trends to watch in 2014 Part 3, June 2014 Realize your software-defined vision with the Digital Data Center from Atos 6

7 Strengthen innovation and competitive differentiation Of course, CIOs will demand the technical advantages of the Digital Data Center from Atos translate into clear and measurable business benefits. In Gartner s words, where once data centers were seen as systems of record, increasingly they are being viewed as systems of innovation and systems of differentiation. 6 Accelerate innovation The Digital Data Center from Atos is a powerful means to drive innovation because it enables the creation of groundbreaking business models without months of bespoke hands-on configuration and testing. Using software-based management, requests for new services can be met more rapidly, and SLAs fulfilled with confidence. This will empower the business to outmanoeuvre competitors on the strength of its innovative products and services as well as speed to market. Atos and VMware: Achieve compelling cost savings Thanks to its unique blend of operational efficiencies and commodity hardware utilization, the Digital Data Center from Atos can reduce CapEx by up to 15% and OpEx by up to 30%.

8 Mitigate risk without inhibiting innovation Of course, the advantages of Digital Data Center from the Atos are meaningless if they pose an unacceptable risk. And this is especially true when adding new services into an already-complex data center environment that mixes mission-critical legacy systems with the latest virtualization techniques. Trust and compliance are critical in every implementation. Gartner highlights public and private cloud as an additional potential source of concern, noting that data centers will have a significant increase in risk as they move toward a more open and hybrid model. 7 At an operational level, the Digital Data Center from Atos addresses risk in the areas you would expect: Reducing human error through software-driven automation and control. Enhancing security through delivery of services from secure Atos data centers (or on-premise if you choose) alongside state-of-the art firewall and DR.
