1 Cisco Cloud Comprehensive, enterprise cloud enablement services help you realize a secure, agile, and highly automated infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) environment for cost-effective, rapid IT service delivery. Accelerate Your Enterprise Private Cloud Initiative Enterprise leaders today are facing numerous challenges around increasing demand for rapid provisioning of services and how best to meet that demand as the business evolves. Enterprises must continue to lower infrastructure costs and maximize limited capital and operational spending, while aligning and optimizing internal processes and better managing complex infrastructures. To control rising service delivery costs, enterprise IT will require user-based chargeback mechanisms and the ability to define and rapidly deliver application-level service level agreements (SLAs). Finally, enterprise IT must secure the user experience while meeting the demand for services and rapid service provisioning. In confronting these challenges, enterprise leaders are asking some difficult, though highly relevant, questions about the value of cloud computing IT resources and services that are abstracted from the underlying infrastructure and provided on demand and at scale in a multitenant and elastic environment as well as the best way to proceed in transforming their enterprise IT infrastructures and service delivery. Leaders are asking: Does cloud computing make sense for my business? How can we anticipate the challenges of migrating to a cloud architecture and make the transition easier? How can we plan and build a cloud architecture that comes in on time and on budget? How can we help ensure regulatory compliance and security? How does cloud affect our enterprise security program? How can we measure the benefits of cloud computing and make sure we will see a return on investment (ROI) and grow our business? Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

2 Is there a way to customize the chosen cloud approach to deliver the most benefit, help ensure cloud evolution, and provide ongoing cost reductions? How do we make sure that our virtualized data center and the operations platform that supports it remain optimized as the use of data center services evolves? Like any major business transition, these important questions must be answered before enterprises can initiate any change, including cloud computing, with confidence. To help you answer these questions, Cisco Cloud provide a portfolio of professional services that can help facilitate a cloud strategy and transition to a cloud approach; accelerate the successful implementation, optimization, and operation of a highly virtualized, secure, and automated infrastructure-as-a-service cloud environment; and rapidly transform IT service delivery, thus increasing business responsiveness and business agility. Transitioning to Cloud Computing Migrating to a new cloud model is much more complex than implementing a single technology. It requires a shift to a new operational business model. Today new data center technologies such as virtualization, orchestration, and automated provisioning and solutions such as the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS ), which unifies network, compute, storage access, and virtualization resources in a cohesive system, have combined to make infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud utility architectures technically and operationally feasible. In fact, many enterprises are considering or have started with the private cloud, in which the data center operates as an infrastructure as a service. There are several cloud deployment models available to enable infrastructure as a service. Private clouds: enterprise IT infrastructure services, managed by the business, with cloud computing qualities such as self-service, pay-as-you-go chargeback, on-demand provisioning, and the appearance of infinite scalability Virtual private clouds: Cloud services that simulate the private cloud experience in public cloud infrastructure Public or external clouds: Cloud infrastructure made available to the general public through web browsers or through APIs but offering limited customer control Community clouds: Cloud infrastructures shared by several organizations and supporting a specific community; for example, several financial service banks join to form a financial community in a cloud And, in the future, hybrid clouds: cloud infrastructures composed of two or more clouds able to interoperate or federate through networking technologies, across data center and organizational boundaries By provisioning IT services as a cloud computing utility and eliminating siloed computing architectures, enterprises can turn IT into a strategic center of innovation with IaaS-enabled service offerings, such as computing, business continuity (disaster recovery), virtual desktop infrastructure, cloudburst, and development and testing/quality assurance as a service Cisco and/or its affiliates.

3 Cisco Cloud Approach Cisco Cloud empower enterprises to identify, implement, operationalize, and optimize the most effective IaaS solution for their business. These services help you build your cloud business case, virtualize and dynamically provision network, compute, and storage resources, and enable new IaaS services with security built into every layer of the infrastructure for a secure, compliant cloud environment. Cisco Cloud provide customized strategy, planning and design, implementation, and optimization based on the customer s targeted IaaS offering. Drawing on extensive experience delivering secure end-to-end virtualized data centers, Cisco provides a comprehensive, architectural approach for enabling IaaS that that considers the people, processes, and technologies involved across your network, compute, and storage resources. This approach encompasses the selection and customization of infrastructure management tools to orchestrate new services and service-oriented billing and chargeback mechanisms, as well as alignment of people and processes to manage IT services. As part of its Cloud, Cisco also provides two overlying functions: a program management office (PMO) and architecture management office. The PMO is a common service element providing project governance, communications planning, risk mitigation, and ongoing management status updates for on-time, coordinated delivery of the IaaS architecture. The architecture management office aligns your business, technologies, and operational architecture to your strategy and utilizes standardization and automation to lower costs for IT services, IT service management (ITSM) complexity, and risk. The office includes a solutions architect providing onsite and remote analysis and reviews of your end-to-end architecture to help ensure adherence to the cloud IaaS architectural design across all service phases. Cisco Cloud offer: Choice: Cisco provides strategy, design, planning, implementation, integration, and optimization services, allowing you to choose the vendors, partners, and solutions that meet your business needs and create a best-in-class solution. A comprehensive, architectural approach: Cisco s approach to cloud enablement is designed to enable the cloud as a new operational model. Cisco utilizes a comprehensive, architectural approach to provide customized cloud infrastructure solutions and uses validated tools and methodologies to accelerate cloud implementation, while mitigating risks. Cisco delivers its enablement services across the enterprise business architecture, technology architecture, data center systems management, network management systems architecture, IT operational and people and process architecture, billing and service-level agreement (SLA) architecture, and facilities architecture. Extensive virtualized data center and unified computing expertise: Many virtualization efforts focus on server, rather than network, virtualization, thus limiting the potential of the cloud approach. By utilizing Cisco s network experience to address the entire cloud architecture and business challenge, you benefit from a comprehensive, rather than siloed, perspective. Cisco and its ecosystem of partners offer extensive real-world, technology and business expertise across network, storage, and compute resources Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

4 Best-in-class solutions and partners: A cloud architecture can encompass diverse technologies and business partners, both within and outside the enterprise. Cisco s collaborative partner approach applies the combined expertise of Cisco and our global partner ecosystem to reduce the risk and accelerate the benefits associated with a cloud transition. Cisco Cloud help integrate your technologies, tools, and partnerships into a cloud solution of your choice. Cisco Cloud The Cisco Cloud include: Cloud Strategy Service Cloud Planning and Design Service Cloud Implementation Service Cloud Optimization Cisco Cloud Strategy Service The most important question an enterprise should ask when contemplating a cloud computing initiative is: What can cloud computing do for my business in terms of controlling costs, delivering a return on investment (ROI), and affecting processes? The Cisco Cloud Strategy Service employs ROI tools and in-depth analysis of your current architecture and technology choices with a primary focus on security to help you determine the most appropriate cloud strategy and architectural options. It also helps assess your architectural options for real cloud uses, such as disaster recovery and computing as a service. Additionally, this service helps you evaluate data center applications and dependencies, as well as management tools and operations management approaches involved in a cloud transition. Unlike a device- or application-level only approach to security, Cisco takes a comprehensive architectural approach. Security is integrated into every layer of the Cisco-enabled IaaS architecture, and all service delivery elements have security. This core capability then is tailored to your environment and business mandates. As part of the strategy service, Cisco provides several cloud security assessments which you can select according to your business needs. These security assessments focus on your needs around, for example, how to solve cloud multitenant security challenges when consolidating previously isolated lines of business into the cloud; manage and control the security of data as it moves through the cloud across dispersed network, computing, and storage resources; and assess whether an application, data, or service is suitable in terms of its security for the cloud and which providers have the security capabilities to meet enterprise security requirements. These assessments include the following: Assess the current data center security architecture and identify gaps between current state and future cloud security architecture state Assess your existing private cloud security architecture, identify areas to strengthen protection, and provide improvement recommendations Assess whether an application, content or network service is suitable for migration to a public cloud Cisco and/or its affiliates.
