4 Finalists in the Smart 21 for both 2013, 2014 and Targeting Intelligent 7 this year, 2015 Identify the gaps in our digital world, and work to bridge them. Only 134 communities have ever earned this designation and this year more than 300 communities submitted nominations
5 We all have DR/BCP plans and systems - all to varying extent. We are all unique, but similar requirements for: - Backup - Storage - Compute capability - Remote access These components make up our Service Catalog for Shared Services.
6 With this project, we have provided to our member councils: Capability - The smaller member councils now have access to ICT resources on par with the biggest members Reliability - Best of breed implementation of the architecture has been designed for very high reliability Redundancy - A fully redundant architecture now provides benefits to all members Resiliency - A highly reliable solution was essential for this project's success. Cost - A key target met for this project was for costs to be no greater than existing approved individual council budgets. Time - The entire project duration spanned three months, from approval to the first on-line services. Expertise - Shared expertise of key ICT staff, which include professional engineering, project management, and design architects, collaborated to deliver the end solution.
7 Innovation There are many cloud providers, able to bring together world class best practise. The MWLASS member councils have either personal or related experiences in these fields, and brought their expertise to this project. Key innovations realised were: - Networking options included those offered by Chorus, Spark Digital, and Inspire Networks. Combinations of dark fibre, UFB services, HSNS and traditional data services. - SDDC (Software Defined Data Center) architecture to ensure current and future council requirements are catered for. 10 and 40 Gbit/s switching combined with traditional 8 Gbit/s fibre channel ensures a long term roadmap for the service. - Cloud based management portal (Andy) for member councils to create and manage their server and storage requirements. - Physically separate multi-city site redundancy, multi-carrier redundancy, and full equipment and power redundancy is deployed throughout the solution.
8 Project Management With such a short implementation project, communications played a key role in bringing the key stakeholders along the journey. The project team, with its governance board, employed a dedicated communications specialist to manage the communications plan. Key stakeholders included; elected officials, senior management staff, ICT staff, suppliers, and vendors. And with such a complex are of private cloud provisioning, easy to assimilate media and messaging was essential. Initial project briefing meetings were held 14 August, 2014 between eight member council Information Managers. Monthly project meetings were held, as well as the MWLASS Directors regular six-weekly meetings. One of the key objectives of the project was to ensure there were no additional budget requirements for the entire project. All costs had to be kept within existing council capital and operational approved budgets.
9 Success and Effectiveness This project shows how much can be achieved when all the stars align; the political environment for shared services, the operational need of the member council ICT requirements, the maturity of cloud computing, virtualisation, and portal management tools, and the will and dedication of the staff involved. The MWLASS now has a shared service compute and storage platform which will cater for current and near future requirements of member councils, big and small. No additional costs have been required to implement this project, as all costs were covered by existing operational and capital budgets. And pricing model was designed to accommodate the various councils financial restraints. The initial councils involved in the implementation are deploying their initial commute and storage requirements into the new private cloud environment (1st week Dec 2014). And as other councils reach their own refresh points, they to will deploy appropriate work loads into the our own private cloud.
10 I bring you the Hybrid Private Cloud
11 Hybrid Cloud Shared Server/Storage Project
12 Shared Services - Not 9 - Just 1 - Not re-inventing each time we do something - Shared expertise, backup of staff, shared workloads Shared Services - Not 9 redundant locations - Just 1 - Not reinventing each time we do something - Sharing our expertise, - backup of crucial staff, - sharing the workload
13 Best Practice - Best of Breeed (which may not have been affordable otherwise - esp. to smaller councils) - Redundancy - Resiliency Best Practise: - Best of breed solutions (which may not have been affordable otherwise) - Redundancy - Resiliency
14 Local - Provincial telecommunications costs - Local fibre suppliers - 10 Gbit/s fibre - 1 Gbit/s fibre Mbit/s fibre The limited and expensive networking options available within provincial New Zealand has caused the MWLASS member councils to implement innovative networking solutions to reach their collective dream. - Tractor pulled fibre in the Tararua farm land (Inspire/TDC) - City wide wifi broadband (WDC/Inspire) - Among NZ s first UFB city (Wanganui) - Chorus HSNS (Inspire/Spark)
15 Private Cloud - Seamless for users - Staff able to move across locations - Shared staff applications, information, resources As we share services across many areas of council, users are able to move more freely between locations, and access their required resources.
16 Cost Effective - no greater than existing approved individual council budgets A major goal for the project was to ensure that no additional funding was sought over and above that which already existed within the member councils existing budgets. Nothing worse that saying to your council, Here is a more cost effective solution, and by they way, can I have another million dollars.
17 Cloud Characteristics Perceived Importance to IT Executives Multi-Tenant Architectural Features Elastic On-Demand Service Model Attributes Usage Metered Self-Service Access Cap Ex or Op Ex As each council progresses through their own equipment, software, and service refresh cycle, the MWLASS councils accommodate both capital and operational based pricing option. This innovation keeps the accountants happy, and removes any financial barriers to shared services success.
18 We are keeping in-line with the All-of-Government focus of Result Area 10. Future - In line with All of Government focus - Online services (Result area 10)
19 Site B Shared Server Project Best Practice - Best of Breeed (which may not have been affordable otherwise - esp. to smaller councils) - Redundancy - Resiliency Cost Effective - no greater than existing approved individual council budgets Shared Services - Not 9 - Just 1 - Not re-inventing each time we do something - Shared expertise, backup of staff, shared workloads Local - Provincial telecommunications costs - Local fibre suppliers - 10 Gbit/s fibre - 1 Gbit/s fibre Mbit/s fibre Private Cloud - Seamless for users - Staff able to move across locations - Shared staff applications, information, resources The Talented Project Team Cap Ex or Op Ex Future - In line with All of Government focus - Online services (Result area 10) Jason Simons Wanganui District Council William Gordon Horizons Regional Council Suzanne Craig Horizons Regional Council Chris Whiley Tararua District Council Lacey Dandy Just Dandy Limited The strategic objective of shared services within the ICT field has been made possible by innovative collaboration of the MWLASS member councils. Shared compute, storage and networking facilities have provided member councils with capability, reliability, redundancy and resiliency, which would have been prohibitive in terms of cost, time, and expertise. Hybrid Cloud has been our answer. Here to talk about the How is Andy Bedford from HP.

21 Our Vision A developer-led, open sourcebased, distributed world with ever-increasing needs to store and process data, on hybrid clouds that just work # Copyright 2015 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. 21 HP Helion is HP s strategy for cloud computing. It s a portfolio of products and services. Refer to the many pressos they heard yesterday how do you bring all this together that s what Helion does embraces and extends the technologies you have invested in and enables integration of future technologies. Open Agile and Secure Our vision is: A developer-led, open source-based distributed world with ever-increasing needs to store and process data, on hybrid clouds that just work. There are a few key concepts in this vision statement to discuss. - Developer-led. In the past, IT had the most influence over information technology. More recently, as companies realize the customer value they can deliver with software and technology, developers have become much more influential. Today, the role of IT is to enable developers to quickly develop and deploy applications. - Open source-based. With the pace of business accelerating, companies need to focus on innovation. Open source software gives companies access to faster innovation and lower cost. - Distributed. Cloud native applications, a new style of applications, are designed to be distributed, resilient, secure and highly scalable. - Hybrid. In the past, applications were developed and deployed in company data centers. Today, companies are realizing the value of using a mix of private, public and managed cloud services, deploying each application to the most appropriate environment.
22 HP Cloud Strategy Hybrid Open # Copyright 2015 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. ANDY FLOOR NOTES: By 2016, Enterprise IT delivery will be 39% in private cloud, 21% in managed cloud, 15% in public cloud, and leaving 25% in traditional IT. 50% of IT executives state security is their biggest barrier to cloud adoption large companies suffer as many as 50,000 cyber intrusion attempts per day, and the Pentagon reports 10 million per day. Fortune 25 customer he mentioned a staggering statistic; his company has invested over 150 million man-hours in legacy code that translates to around $11.3 billion dollars invested into traditional IT. And that s just one company! Since 2008, there have been 800 regulatory changes in the United States alone. 71% of IT executives believe that open standards are critical to their cloud strategy. 65% are concerned with getting locked into a specific vendor. Services ensures you get the promise of the cloud without the pitfalls. I mentioned earlier, I want to share trends and patterns that make the case for hybrid cloud even more compelling. Cloud Adoption 73% have less than 25% of workloads ready for public cloud - From 451 Cloud Adoption Survey Results The Customer Speaks: Latest Trends in Cloud Computing Adoption with 451 Research Speaker: Peter ffolkes, Research Director of Servers & Virtualization, & Cloud Computing August 8, % of software buyers expect to have a formal cloud strategy by the end of Only 62% had one at the end of 2012 However, only 20% expect to be executing on a formal cloud migration plan by the end of 2013 (Forrester) tp://www.forbes.com/sites/louiscolumbus/2013/11/16/roundup-of-cloud-computing-forecasts-update-2013/ Cloud Barriers SECURITY As nation-states and organized crime fixate on breaching your organizations cloud security will be paramount. And security is one of the single largest barriers for cloud adoption 50% of IT executives have stated it s their biggest barrier. To put it in context, large companies like HP and it s Fortune 500 peers suffer as many as 50,000 cyber intrusion attempts per day. The Pentagon an HP customer reports 10 million attempts per day. As a result, we ve designed our hybrid cloud to integrate seamlessly with ArcSight, Fortify and TippingPoint hands down the best security software assets in the industry. OPEN Last week, I was with a Fortune 25 customer he mentioned a staggering statistic; his company has invested over 150 million man-hours in legacy code that translates to around $11.3 billion dollars invested into traditional IT. And that s just one company! Compare that to last year, this company invested 250,000 man-hours of code for New Style of IT solutions. As a result, customers need that bridge they need a bridge to cloud-enable legacy applications. And there is $2.2 trillion dollars in legacy IT that needs to be safely and securely bridged to the cloud. Particularly for large enterprises, this transition will take time and a partner with a steady pair of hands that s why HP has built a cloud Professional Services organization unmatched in size and expertise to ensure you get the promise of the cloud without the pitfalls. COMPLIANCE And that takes us to compliance since 2008, there have been 800 regulatory changes in the United States alone. And there are hundreds more in the queue moving through Washington and legislative bodies around the world. The hybrid cloud allows for easy transition from public to private to managed clouds ensuring your organization can easily adapt to changing regulatory environments. VENDOR LOCK-IN And finally, take advantage of the cloud for new applications 71% of IT executives believe that open standards are critical to their cloud strategy. In my conversations with customers, their excitement with open standards is deeply rooted in their concern with vendor lock-in a staggering 65% are concerned with getting locked into a specific vendor which erodes the long term economic value promised by the cloud. And we ve lived this storyline before with IBM it was the mainframe, Microsoft dominated end-user computing with Windows, and Cisco locked you in enterprise networking. If you want to ensure you continue to receive the cost savings from major IT innovations like the cloud, then you need to adopt an open IT architecture that is able to take advantage of future cloud innovations we have to learn from the mistakes of our past, and avoid vendor lock-in as the cloud becomes the
23 Public Cloud gives you Convenience Private Cloud gives you Control # Copyright 2015 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. Why do developers use public cloud.. Its convenience.. Easy.. No department of NO! But private cloud is where we are comfortable, understand fully the security, have control including cost control. Now how can you leverage all these technologies while meeting compliance and security obligations..
24 Hybrid IT Use the right destination for the right application Classic IT applications Bridge old and new Cloud Native applications Private Cloud Managed Private Cloud Managed Virtual Private Cloud Public Cloud Common foundation & Open technology Service Marketplace # Copyright 2015 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. Most applications today are what we call classic IT applications. These are applications that have been deployed over the last 5-10 years. These classic applications are typically multi-tier web applications comprised of a web tier, middleware, applications and databases. Today, many new applications are being developed as cloud native applications, applications designed specifically for deployment in the cloud. These applications are inherently highly scalable, resilient, distributed and API-based. With classic applications, IT had one choice of deployment platform, typically within a company data center. With the advent of cloud computing, IT organizations have multiple choices of platforms, private cloud, managed private cloud, managed virtual private cloud, public cloud and classic IT. Cloud native applications can be deployed on multiple platforms and can be moved from one platform to another. IT must now determine the best platform for each application. Here are the key factors that are used to determine the best platform for each application. - Security - Availability - Compliance - Data Sovereignty - Performance - Open - Cost To manage multiple platforms, its important to have a common foundation that allows applications to be moved from one platform to another. And to simplify management, there should be centralized management across all the platforms.
