14 IBM: Cloud trends 2011 CLOUD ENTERPRISE TRENDS IBM Study of 500 IT and business leaders Only 33% have deployed more than a cloud pilot 2011 but will double in 3 years; 40% say cloud will bring "substantial change" and 30% say cloud will drive the invention of business models and revenue streams by Enterprises see the value of cloud but face a unique set of challenges Security, Reliability, Standards Control beyond IT and the virtualization of data centers. 14

15 IBM: Cloud trends 2011 INCREASING ADOPTION BY ENTERPRISE FOR COMPLEX WORKLOADS BUT WITH TRUSTED PROVIDERS Public Cloud: "We're very focused on what enterprises need to protect their reputations, revenue and supply chains and bring real mission critical applications to the cloud," Lauren States, IBM CTO Cloud Computing, said. IBM to address those concerns and increase businesses' adoption of public clouds by ramping up security and other features that appeal to large businesses.[ibm] to support about 200 million users by the end of 2012, as clients shift their core applications and processes to IBM's SmartCloud. Wall Street Journal (10/12/2011) Private Cloud: Focus area for many enterprises to build their own clouds but keen interest in buying secure, private hosted PaaS, SaaS and BPaaS (Business Processes as a Service). Examples: IBM SmartCloud Foundations for private clouds IBM SmartCloud Services (http://www- 03.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/35593.wss) 15

18 Cloud Clients: Emerging Requirements affect Networks (1 of 2) Example: Asian clients seeking national/regional cloud services Geographic locations: large DCs with desire to grow regional cloud services delivery What is the optimum mix of large Internet DCs and regional Cloud centers? Networks: Mix of 1G-10G fiber nets in dense metro and fiber trunks to support economic growth in regional areas How can we assure that we do not over/under invest in network capacity? Cloud services delivery: Early services online. What are scaling impacts on networks? Envisioned subscribers: 1M ->5M ->10M ->50M in 5 years Security, business process transformation and QoE are serious issues 18

19 Cloud Clients: Emerging Requirements affect Networks (2 of 2) Example: Asian clients seeking national/regional cloud services Enabling CSP ecosystem partners is required CSPs have dual role as network infrastructure owners and opportunities for new revenues as Cloud service providers; New telco hardened IBM offering CSP2 Cloud Service Provider Platform to rapidly enable new telco services over Cloud (announced 10/2010, Network bandwidth vs. customer Cloud workload requirements Bandwidth may be saturated due to volume adding more bandwidth will help to scale general internet speed workloads ( ms latency) Certain workloads require much lower latencies (1ms ->30ms) Financial trading (1ms) Medical image processing & archiving (10ms) Manufacturing, government services (~20-30 ms) Geographic proximity of IDCs and Cloud DCs is set by latencies 19

20 Trends in DC Convergence and the Impact on Cloud Services: A Solution from ADVA/IBM/Juniper 10GE FCoE Data Center A 10GE ADVA FSP 3000 DWDM Terminals Primary Fiber 10GE Data Center B QF/Node QF/Node 10GE FCoE QF/Node 8GFC Backup Fiber 8GFC QF/Node SAN: FC Disk & Tape SAN: FC Disk & Tape 20

21 Traditional Data Center Architecture: Two Networks & Three Tiers NW-1: LAN Ethernet Tier-3: Core Tier-2: Aggregation Tier-1: Access NW-2: SAN FC Servers NAS FC Storage FC SAN 21

22 Data Center Convergence The evolution of DC physical network infrastructure is following two major themes: Collapsing tiers in the LAN Converging server I/O (FC & Eth) onto shared 10GE network Together these trends improve the economics of the DC, cloud services, and drive more FC/Eth traffic into the transport network. Collapsed Tiers SAN SAN A B Converged Server I/O 22

23 Traditional Server Access: Two Networks to the Server Fiber Channel SAN Ethernet LAN 2/4/8G Fiber Channel Dedicated FC Host Bus Adapter(s) in the server Expensive in terms space, power, cooling, cabling GigE moving to 10GE Server NIC moving to LAN-on-motherboard NW-1: LAN NW-2: SAN Server Rack 23

24 Converged Server I/O: One Network on the Server Fiber Channel SAN Ethernet LAN Physical 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection to the server IEEE standards enable FC-over-10GE in the DC (FCoE & DCB) Converged Network Adapter (CNA) subsumes NIC and HBA Efficient w/r/t space, power, cooling, cabling Server Rack Server 10GE and FCoE drives DC bandwidth 40G intra-dc now common 40G on servers in G inter-dc today; intra-dc in 2012/13 24

25 The Problem with Tiers Typical tree configuration Tier-3: Core Location matters in a tree architecture Tier-2: Aggregation Bubbles Optimal performance Tier-1: Access VM One Hop 25

26 The Problem with Tiers Typical tree configuration Tier-3: Core Location matters in a tree architecture Appliances and VLANs Tier-2: Aggregation Shadows Tier-1: Access VM 26

27 Collapse the Tiers One Network Flat, any-to-any connectivity Tier-3: Core Tier-2: Aggregation Tier-1: Access 27

28 Data Center Fabric One Network Flat, any-to-any connectivity Key resources are one hop away VM Key resources are ALWAYS one hop away Locality should not matter in a virtualized data center 28

29 Data Center Fabric One Network Flat, any-to-any connectivity Switch Fabric Performance and simplicity of a single switch Single switch does not scale Single point of failure 29

30 Data Center Fabric One Network Flat, any-to-any connectivity Collapsed & Converged One-tier Flat Any-to-any Server I/O FCoE for SAN 10GE 40GE A Network Fabric has the. Performance and simplicity of a single switch And the Scalability and resilience of a network 30

33 In Summary Flat fabrics and server I/O convergence are key enabling technologies for large-scale cloud data centers. Converged data center architectures create the opportunity (economics) for new cloud services: Virtualized workloads, VM mobility. Distributing historically localized SOA apps. Disaster recovery / HA designs. The new data center is pushing higher bandwidths 10GE (LOM) server attach 40GE aggregation in the DC; 8 Gig 16 Gig FC SAN all driving demand for Nx 100 Gig Metro / LH multi-service optical transport services with agile service provisioning. End-to-end tested and integrated solutions are critical for successful service delivery. 33

34 Level3, ADVA and IBM Virtual Storage Cloud (Media Clients)

35 Virtual Storage Cloud A Joint IBM, Level 3, ADVA Smart Business Pilot The Company The Challenge The Solution The Benefits Three of the world s major video broadcasting companies in the greater New York City metro area Video serving requirements were placing increasingly heavy demands on each company s data storage infrastructure. Increased capacity needed at each customer to store and retrieve extremely large files at high speed Cost-effective, scalable solution that could handle high projected storage growth. Implemented IBM Smart Business Storage Cloud at 590 Madison Avenue, New York City, with virtualized network infrastructure The solution allows multiple clients to store and rapidly access large video files in a single location. Storage capacity may be elastically scaled precisely as the business requirements dictate. High reliability network, enabled for future InfiniBand or FCoE applications, extends directly into the cloud data center Increased productivity with centralized file storage Enhanced, cost-effective scalability meets growing business requirements Reduced administrative workload and costs Enabled new cloud services including live VM migration & Network Boot 35

36 Network Architecture Cloud Client Connections 10 G waves connect Production studio to Storage Pod for Massive file upload and Secondary storage Layer 3 IPVPN provides secure and reliable connections to cloud infrastructure to facilitate workflow 36 Global content delivery enables distribution of finished products to the Internet

37 Why it works: Wavelengths & Cloud Build a virtual physical transport network that allows multiple customers with different applications / workload profiles to dynamically share a common virtual data center over a secure high speed Encrypted transport Servers Remote Desktop Customer 3 Customer 2 Customer 1 Virtual Tape/Disk/Server Cloud Customer 4 37

38 Conclusion & Questions: So What have we learned? The network is critical in this new era of business agility and that these trends drive even higher data rates and even more protocols between Cloud Data Centers. Why? Because Virtualization, Convergence, Layer2 Fabrics and Cloud lower cost, take less space, scale better, provide higher performance, require less management and are Cloud ready. How? By working with IBM so the end-to-end solution has been tested and fully integrated with JUNIPER, ADVA, and LEVEL3 - and it works! 38

39 Thank you We invite you to explore our Cloud resources, tools and progress!
