    supported Services

Is cloud computing really new? Yes, and no.
  • Cloud computing is a new consumption and
    delivery model inspired by consumer Internet
    services. Cloud computing exhibits the following
    5 key characteristics
  • On-demand self-service
  • Ubiquitous network access
  • Location independent resource pooling
  • Rapid elasticity
  • Pay per use
  • While the technology is not new, the end user
    focus of self-service, self-management leveraging
    these technologies is new.

Today there are three primary delivery models
that companies are implementing for cloud
Traditional Enterprise IT
Public Clouds
Private Cloud
Hybrid Cloud
  • Public Cloud
  • IT activities/functions are provided as a
    service, over the Internet
  • Key features
  • Scalability
  • Automatic/rapid provisioning
  • Standardized offerings
  • Consumption-based pricing.
  • Multi-tenancy
  • Private Cloud
  • IT activities/functions are provided as a
    service, over an intranet, within the enterprise
    and behind the firewall
  • Key features include
  • Scalability
  • Automatic/rapid provisioning
  • Chargeback ability
  • Widespread virtualization

Hybrid Cloud Internal and external service
delivery methods are integrated, with
activities/functions allocated to based on
security requirements, criticality, architecture
and other established policies.

Cost savings and faster time to value are the
leading reasons why companies consider cloud
To what degree would each of these factors induce
you to acquire public cloud services?
Pay only for what we use
Hardware savings

Reduce costs
Software licenses savings
Lower labor and IT

support costs Lower outside maintenance costs

Take advantage of latest functionality

Faster time to value
Speed deployment

Elements that Drive Cloud Efficiency and Economics
Infrastructure Leverage
Virtualization of Hardware
Drives lower capital requirements
Virtualized environments only get benefits of
scale if they are highly utilized
Utilization of Infrastructure
Clients who can serve themselves require less
support and get services
Self Service
Labor Leverage
Automation of Management
Take repeatable tasks and automate
More complexity less automation
possible people needed
Standardization of Workloads
Managing Cloud Adoption
  • Cloud economics can be compelling
  • Small companies will adopt as reliable,
    easy-to-use services are available
  • Scale economics are within reach of many
  • Client migration will be work load driven
  • Trade-off is value vs. risk of migration
  • Workload characteristics are critical
  • New workloads will emerge as cloud makes them
    affordable (eg pervasive analytics, Smart

Clients cite "push factors" for and "barriers"
against cloud adoption for each workload type
Higher propensity for cloud
  • Data privacy or regulatory and compliance issues
  • High level of Internal control required
  • Accessibility and reliability are a concern
  • Cost is not a concern
  • Fluctuating demand
  • Highly standardized applications
  • Modular, independent applications
  • Unacceptably high costs

IBM Best Practices Align the DR approach with
the environment and virtualize
  • Align DR to match environment
  • Update DR in line with changes in production
  • Provide choices to match customers considerations
  • Virtualizing the DR environment, along with the
    production servers and storage, can dramatically
    improve recovery times as measured in both
    recovery time objectives (RTOs), and recovery
    point objectives (RPOs).

Customer Example A large defense contractor
client was interested in the Resilient Cloud
Validation program to combat the very real fear
in the industry that clouds should only run
applications that you can actually do without for
a couple of days. Since their end-user clients
are all DOD, they needed to be able to prove to
them that the proposed Cloud services could
provide the same level of reliability that
traditional data center centric service offerings
provide. The Resilient Cloud Validation program
demonstrates to their clients and to the press
that they are running a true cloud service that
can be trusted.
So what is IBMs approach? IT needs to become
smarter about
  • delivering services and service management
  • Standardized processes
  • Service management systems provide visibility,
    control and automation
  • Lower operational costs and higher productivity
  • optimizing workloads
  • Rate and degree of standardization of IT and
    business services
  • Complex transaction and information management
  • Rapid return-on-investment and productivity gains
  • deployment choices
  • New models are emerging for the enterprise
  • Self-service, economies-of-scale, and flexible
    sourcing options
  • New choices of deployment define these new

North Carolina State University
Making a breakthrough in improving access to
academic computing resources
  • Business Challenge NC State has more than 31,000
    students and nearly 8,000 faculty and staff.
    Growing demand for academic computing resources
    meant the school needed to fundamentally change
    the way it managed these resources in order to
    deliver the service levels that its key user
    populations required.
  • Solution IBM adapted high-performance computing
    into a virtualization model enabling NC State to
    deliver more resource support across the
    university at lower cost. The new cloud
    computing model for provisioning technology
    offers the school a quantum improvement in
    access, efficiency and convenience over the
    traditional computer labs it had relied on.
  • Benefits
  • Projected savings in software licensing costs of
    up to 75 percent
  • 150 percent increase in students served per
    application license
  • Increased flexibility to shift computing
    capacity between instructional, research and
    administrative needs

Our goal was to rethink the way we met the
academic computing needsBy collaborating with
IBM, we are now better able to deliver on that
mission. Mladen Vouk, Department Head

  • Connect 28 volunteers from different chapters
    across 8 states to national organization and to
    each other
  • Reduce volunteer time spent on administration to
    increase time spent on fundraising
  • Solution
  • Use Files to create central repository to store
    and share documents (e.g., sponsor contracts,
    planning documents, fundraising forms)
  • Use Activities to
  • Plan and coordinate events (e.g., walkathons)
  • Ensure 24 hr access to current materials for
  • Capture and share meeting notes, photos, talking
  • Benefits

Before we started using LotusLive Engage, I
would constantly get emails and phone calls
asking for information, so I spent a lot of time
responding to those requests. Now people know to
go to LotusLive. In fact, I personally saved two
hours a week, which is 10 of the time I spend
volunteering for UNIFEM. Younghee Overly,

IBM Information Protection Services on the IBM
Cloud-based technologies protect your information
with professionally managed business continuity
and resiliency services
  • The United States Golf Association depends on IBM
    cloud services, both the Email Management Express
    for email recovery and Remote Data Protection to
    back up their servers.
  • Jessica Carroll, managing director of IT for the
    nonprofit governing body of golf, says her
    existing backup and disaster-recovery plans were
    well designed for business conditions five years
  • But they were no longer adequate for today's
    world in which companies can't afford to be down
    for even brief periods of time.
  • She looked for a better option and found a
    cloud-based business resiliency service from IBM.
    "IBM's reputation and the services it was
    offering were enterprise class," Carroll says. "I
    knew right away this was the way to go. The
    product was so strong."
