1 Technical Brief: Egenera Taps Brocade and Fujitsu to Help Build an Enterprise Class Platform to Host Xterity Wholesale Cloud Service

2 ... Egenera needed an enterprise class platform to host their wholesale cloud service Xterity. They turned to longtime partners Fujitsu and Brocade to create a scalable infrastructure solution that could be easily deployed as well as supplying the reliability and performance expected by enterprises as they moved to cloud solutions for their IT services. Xterity Cloud POD is an integrated, entry-level solution that can scale to thousands of servers within a single POD. The result is the Xterity Cloud POD, an integrated, entry-level solution that can scale to thousands of servers within a single POD. The solution fully addresses processing performance, storage capabilities, networking solutions, multi-tenancy, self-service, security and overall management. The overall architecture of the Xterity Cloud POD was developed to deliver a sustainable cloud resource that was equally adaptable to the needs of customers and market demands. INTERNET Internet Connectivity Datacenter compatibility/network isolation and cloud security Cloud Management Platform Host infrastructure management software, present a single management console for cloud operations, host a self-portal for customers, host firewalls for customer security, deliver high availability for cloud services Management Network Out of band, secure, host management communications with cloud components Compute Fabric High performance, low latency, multi-tenant, converged network Computing Platform Server resources physical and virtual servers. High performance, high availability Storage Platform Tiered performance levels, reliable, redundancy, scalable Xterity Cloud POD 2 Xterity Cloud POD

3 ... Each element of the architecture is critical to the customer experience. As a result it also needs to be dependable and to satisfy the cost savings expected from cloud technologies. Each element of the architecture is critical to the customer experience. As a result it also needs to be dependable and to satisfy the cost savings expected from cloud technologies. The ability to scale seamlessly and to adjust the cloud capabilities without interruption was necessary to meet the cost targets. Translating the architecture into a solution s resulted in the Xterity POD using the following products for the architectural elements: Internet Connectivity Brocade ICX 6610 Cloud Management Platform Egenera PAN Cloud Director Egenera PAN Manager Brocade vrouter 5600 VMware vsphere FUJITSU PRIMERGY RX2540 Cloud Compute Fabric Cloud Compute Platform Cloud Storage Platform Brocade VDX6740 FUJITSU PRIMERGY CX400/CX2550 FUJITSU ETERNUS DX200 The Xterity POD is capable of supporting up to 44 physical servers that can be provisioned as bare metal servers or as hosts for virtual servers and over 151TB of available storage supporting the servers. But, in order to right size the environment and meet operational cost models, each Xterity POD starts with an entry configuration that can support about 1000 small configuration virtual servers (1 x vcpu/1gb memory/50gb storage). Assembled into a standard 42U computer rackframe, the Xterity POD becomes the scalable entity. As capacity exceeds the single POD, additional Xterity POD s are added to ensure scalability. 3 x Fujitsu Primergy RX2540 Infrastructure Management So6ware Cluster PAN Manager, PAN Cloud Director, vcenter, vrouter 5600 Firewall, IPS, vsphere 2 x Brocade ICX F : Security/Isola?on/public internet connec?vity 2 x Brocade VDX6740 switches : Compute Fabric capacity for 2772 VM s 1 x Brocade ICX : Management network capacity for up to 2772 VM s 4 x Fujitsu Primergy CX400/16 x CX2550 M1 Dense Servers: Compute Pla:orm for 1000 VM s (Entry ConfiguraKon) 1 to 7 x Fujitsu Primergy CX400/ 24 x CX2550 Dense Servers: Compute Pla:orm Add 1x CX400/ 4 x CX2550 Dense Servers for 252 VM s per CX total VM s 1 x Fujitsu Eternus DX200 S3 Storage Array Controller (Entry ConfiguraKon) 25.2 TB / 22 x 1.2TB HDD / 2 x 400GB SSD RAID 6 90% uklizakon Redundant FCoE interfaces 1 x Fujitsu Eternus DX200 Storage Array Disk Expansion enclosure (Entry Config) 25.2TB : 22 x 1.2TB HDD/2 x 400GB SSD Add 1 to 4 x Fujitsu Eternus DX200 Storage Array Disk Expansion enclosures Bring total storage capacity to 151.2TB 1 x 42U Industry Standard Rack Frame 24 wide x 36 deep 3 Xterity Cloud POD

4 ... Brocade Egenera partnered with Brocade to integrate its products within the self-service portal of the Xterity cloud and to enable orchestration of hybrid solutions in a cloud environment. Customers can easily drag and drop catalog items including network resources and firewall policies to construct their workload environments. This collaboration has enabled Xterity to offer MSP s and enterprises an easy to use IaaS cloud that becomes their own private datacenter. The Brocade VDX products provide a compute fabric for a fully converged and complete network orchestrated by Egenera s PAN Manager making the Xterity POD a truly software defined network while delivering the flexibility to quickly provision any topology needed. Brocade technologies that enabled the Xterity Cloud Include: Brocade VDX 6740 Cloud Fabric Brocade ICX6610 Internet Connectivity and Management Network Brocade vrouter 5600 Firewall technology Fujitsu Egenera collaborated with Fujitsu to develop technology that enabled rackservers to be managed like blade servers. The FUJITSU PRIMERGY rackservers with the FUJITSU Cloud Adaptor for PAN Solutions enable provisioning of bare metal servers with the flexibility of virtual servers to enable users of the Xterity self-service portal to easily create hybrid workload solutions with both physical servers and virtual servers. Egenera also leverages Fujitsu storage technologies to provide a flexible, reliable and scalable storage environment. With all servers configured as stateless no local disks Xterity Cloud takes full advantage of the flexibility, performance and reliability of a network storage topology utilizing FCoE for all compute fabric connectivity. Xterity also leverages the FUJITSU ETERNUS automatic tiering and QoS functions as the basis for the storage options offered to end users.
