The IT sector is on a Journey.As customers continue to adopt virtualization technology, we have seen a fundamental shift in how they are able to build, run and deliver IT services to their business partners and how they have been able to directly advance their business goals.The Journey is more than a path of adopting increasing amounts of technology. It is a shift in the role that virtualization plays – from a catalyst for consolidating hardware infrastructure, to an efficiently managed and automated environment, to a platform for agile IT service delivery and consumption. The Journey provides an overarching view for how customers evolve from rigid and inflexible legacy architectures to modern and agile infrastructures.
IDC has described three eras of IT.The first was the mainframe era, in which the killer app was the automated payroll and IT was in an access-controlled glass room.The second phase was the client-server era of distributed computing, where we had millions of users and thousands of apps and we ended up building silos of IT—the data centers of today, or the museums of IT past. But the era that were entering into is the mobile-cloud era, in which it's about billions of users. Virtually every human on the planet is interacting with millions of application. And it's all about IT as a service, with a self-service catalog that becomes the standard way people expect to achieve and receive their capabilities and their applications for the future. And IT must operate at higher and higher velocity. Simply put, the fastest will win.
In the new Mobile-Cloud Era, four trends are shaping IT: social, mobile, cloud, and big data. These are affecting both consumer IT as well as business IT. Each of these trends affect the others. And everything that's happening in the world of IT today is affected by at least one, often more, of these trends. More people, more apps, more data, all placing huge demands on the infrastructure that you deliver.
Gartner estimates that some 30 percent of IT’s budgets today are going into new innovation. And the reason is that apps are slow, device management consumes too much, provisioning is too slow …all of these reasons make IT too slow and infrastructure too brittle and heavy. But for VMware customers who have implemented virtualization, the percentage of IT budget going to innovation is about 40%.<click> But our goal in this is to move our customers to 50%, where IT goes from being a ball and chain to becoming a powerful tool where apps are self-service, rolled out at the speed of business; where IT becomes an asset to accelerate business opportunities for the future.
Ultimately, this infrastructure is to enable applications for business. Enterprise apps are becoming like consumer apps, that must be agile and quick to deploy—one size doesn't fit at all.
The next generation of IT, as the administrators of virtual infrastructure, will need to address the complex demands on IT from many different stakeholders: the CIO and Operations, the CTO, the Finance guys, the customers, the global workforce, business units…
Ultimately, the solution is IT as a service: where IT is on demand, accessing any service, with total cost transparency. ITaaS can be delivered on any cloud, on any platform, based on an increasingly programmable and automated infrastructure. IT must become a service provider, able to deliver IT as a service business to your internal customers.
The software-defined data center does away with the old operating-system-centric approach.Just as the classic virtualization hypervisor abstracts and pools both CPUs and memory, the software-defined data center applies this approach to storage and availability services, as well as network and security services, and adds management capabilities to control it all.
Key message – a virtual network is a software container, just like a server hypervisor, providing all of the functionality and services required.
There are a number of characteristics that define true network virtualization, but the top three are Completely decouples virtual networks from physical network hardwareFaithfully reproduces the physical network model in the virtual network space, workloads see no differenceAnd, Automation, from both a cloud operations and network operations perspective.Other characteristics, more specific to our network virtualization include:Address isolation between virtual networks and between virtual networks and the underlying physical networkProgrammatic control through a RESTful web services APIGateway capability allowing seamless connection to legacy VLANs and physical workloadsA platform for developing innovative and differentiated servicesIndependence…works as an overlay above any physical network hardware and with any server hypervisor platform

The beauty of the recent vCloud Suite launch is that we have an entire platform which enables customers to buy 1 sku, 1 sns and they do not have to try to figure of what products should they buy to achieve operations management and or service provisioning. It is 1 sku VCloud Suite Enterprise.
Release 6.0 supports a Unified Service Catalog and App Store ordering experience where users can request from a personalized collection of application, infrastructure services. In addition, administrators can use the Advanced Service Designer to automate the make available custom IT services through the new IT service catalog. Service Entitlements and optional approvals allow IT administrators to deliver personalized IT service catalog which can be optimized to the specific needs of individual users or groups of users. Each Tenant can have their own specific branding and user authentication directory services (LDAP).Once a consumer requests a service, a showback of the service cost is getting displayed. More service costing capabilities are available under the “Business Management” tab.More detail available in the backup slides
So, not only can I create service offerings which meet the needs of the Dev/Test Group, I can also do the same for <CLICK> Production <CLICK> and Desktop.The policies defined in the cloud blueprints not only determined the process steps that will be used to provision and manage each resource, they also dictate what type of machine (virtual, physical or cloud) as well as the service level each user will receive. All of these policies can be configured by the administrator without having to write any scripts or code.
Let us look now into the application services capabilities of vCloud Automation Center. Here you see a screen shot for Application Blueprints. An application blueprint describes the deployment topology of an application. In other words, an application blueprint describes a model of a integrated multi-tier application, which can be deployed into various clouds. An application blueprint is based on the principle of loosely coupling and it allows you to abstract the application from the infrastructure. This provides unprecedented choice in terms of what infrastructure should be chosen to best fit the requirements of the application. An application blueprint is assembled by dragging and dropping components (i.e. services) into the canvas. Traditionally applications were deployed using an approach, in which the business opens a ticket, hardware is selected, procured, installed and configured, followed by the installation, configuration and testing of each application. This process often leads to deployment times of weeks or months, and the response to the business is slow. Here only he application architect, rather than dozens of people or teams are required to deploy applications. The deployment and update process is greatly streamlined. The components / services of the blueprint are reusable and pre-built so there is no need to re-create them over and over again. Organizations can standardize their software stack (what SW to use, what versions, configurations etc..) using those components, which is important for effective automation. Thequality of services improves by capturing best practices or gold standards in the components. Once an application model has been created, it can be re-deployed on demand by consumers across clouds.Streamlining the deployment process using pre-built components and re-using application models all leads to accelerating application deployment times. The Blueprint provides a master template so that all applications deployed into dev, test or production are configured in exactly the same way. This eliminates a big source of configuration differences, which require time intense manual rework. Of course it is possible to make changes to standard configurations within specific deployment blueprints as needed.
Applications and application changes are always deployed using dev, test and production environments. It takes considerable effort to stand up those environments and often each application has 10 or more environments. Using application service models, consistent applications i.e. applications with standardized configurations, can now be deployed over and over again across clouds.It is possible to deploy a Dev environment into the public cloud in Amazon, and a production environment into a vSphere based private cloud. Of course it is possible to adapt configurations at deployment time to meet specific environment specific requirements.Applications see constant change. We can also promote a consistent set of changes across applications from dev to test to production. This allows us to not only stand up consistent environments, but also to keep them consistent to a large extend during their life time. .Those capabilities combined allow to automate the application release process to accelerate application and change deployments.
Services may be over-sized or services may be un-used. Often consumers do not return services they do not need anymore – they hoard them – because they know that it is hard to get them in the first place. With vCloud Automation Center it is easy to identify unused services and reclaim them with a few clicks. For example, it is easy to identify all machines, which were not used for a certain amount of time. The owners of those machines can get notified by e-mail to log in to the machine within a certain time period if they would like to keep the service. In the same e-mail they can also be advised how to re-deploy the service through the self service catalog, in case they would need to service again in the future. If the consumer does not log in to the service, the service gets reclaimed by vCAC. The cost savings through reclaiming over-sized or un-used services is considerable: Many customers save up to 30% on Cap-Ex. Customers buy vCAC for the agility it provides, but the cost savings often help to justify the purchase. ROI models are available.
