Notes de l'éditeur

  1. Companies go into a migration of applications to the public cloud with the belief that they can setup a transformation factory that systematically moves applications to the public cloud by leveraging their existing staff and that they can accomplish the project on budget and on schedule. If they didn’t think they could successfully accomplish the task they would execute the project. The often underestimate the difficulty and proper factor in the drag their existing operations can place upon the project.
  2. The direct jump to hyperscale cloud is often a larger leap from existing internal operations than companies anticipated. They often take longer and cost more than expected as they are learning along the way and didn’t go into the project with the needed skill sets. As a result companies often pivot the strategy when the progress of their transformation project plateaus away from refactoring/replatforming to more of a lift and shift. This leads to greater cost overruns and erodes the confidence of the leadership team to the benefits of the overall cloud transformation and can reflect poorly on those leading the project.
  3. When most people use the word “cloud” they are referring to Hyperscale cloud and are unaware that other modes of cloud exist so when they talk about a cloud migration they are focused on moving workloads to the public hyperscale cloud.
  4. This slide focuses on the different approaches companies can take to make their cloud transformation a reality. The red line at the top highlight how easy it is to do along with the level of risk involved. The 3 different areas covered are: Rehost or lift and shift (or what Expedient will call lift and optimize). We leverage our assessments and migration process to optimize operations along the way. Companies typically need 30% IT fewer resources after going through this process with Expedient. Think of it as a lift and optimize approach. Doing the right sizing on the front end of your cloud migration. In the middle you are dealing with modernizing or refactoring, where the focus is on the automation and provisioning of IT resources. Clients can refactor applications by deploying them on a container platform. We provide the tooling for clients to do just that. The challenge with the highest risk is to do a complete cloud native rebuild. This is where clients rewrite applications to a function as a service within an organization. This is where infrastructure becomes code. This is the longest and most costly approach but for those applications that require a high degree of scaling it can deliver immense value.

  9. Order matters in a cloud transformation. Just like the order you do things in a math equation matters, the same applies to a cloud migration. You should look to eliminate the complexity out of the system first, and then move towards a hyperscaler and cloud native model. This way clients can complete their cloud migration much faster.
  10. This is an example of a calculator that was built with VMware to determine the potential value in total spend, employee hours reclaimed and speed to a cloud operating model. It take roughly 30 minutes to quantify the potential impact of a cloud different approach.
  11. There is another approach to cloud transformation the increases your chance of success and accelerates how quickly you can recognize the benefits of a cloud operating model. It is likely something you have preached internally for years as the best way to deliver a successful project when leveraging new technologies. CWR = Crawl, Walk, Run
  12. The majority of companies still run most of their applications on VMware based infrastructure but have a smaller footprint in Hyperscale cloud. This has actually led to a more complicated environment as they are trying to straddle two very different platforms for their applications that have to be networked and secured separately. Most organizations also didn’t go into the “cloud” with a strong approach to governance or formal training program for their employees which now has to be reigned in and cleaned up.
  13. This is a time where you can really benefit by slowing down to actually speed up. By taking a step back and recognizing that the weight of your internal infrastructure operations and the associated technical debt is acting as an anchor that is holding back the desired progress of your transformation. If you leverage a different mode of cloud as your first step in your transformation you can actually achieve your cloud transformation goals much faster.
  14. Step 1: Exit your internal infrastructure ASAP by moving to a VMware cloud and leverage the standards of a service provider. This can be accomplished in a matter of months by having the service provider perform the migration & optimization as this is what they do everyday. Your team is no longer spending time dealing with hardware vendors, updating infrastructure or focused on capacity planning. You are on a platform where significant portions of your expense are now aligned to your consumption of resources and you are no longer trying to forecast your needs years in advance like when making capital investments. You have easy access to ongoing cost and performance optimization and can leverage inherent automation platforms of the cloud to improve the ongoing operations of your environment.
  15. Now you need to shift the thinking of your team from keeping the lights on to how you can be a more strategic part of the business. This is the time to setup an evaluation process inside your team to determine which ”mode” of cloud (enterprise or hyperscale) is best for each application. It is likely that most of your existing workloads remain on an enterprise cloud if they are virtual machines and aren’t being refactored / rewritten. For those applications that would benefit significantly from Hyperscale's PaaS offerings (AI/ML, big data) you should invest in upskilling your staff so that when you start rewriting those applications you get maximum benefits from the providers capabilities and your team doesn’t spend most of their time just trying to learn via trial and error. By changing the order of your transformation you likely end up with the applications you wanted to put into a hyperscale cloud in the same amount of time but you have also accomplished a full move off of your internal infrastructure and improved the standing of IT within your organization.
  16. The final component of getting to a full cloud operating model is solving for day two operations. If you don’t have proper governance and a standardized way to manage security, automation and ongoing optimization it is easy to end up back with the technical debt you were trying to run away from. The Expedient CTRL suite is designed to solve for this and ensure you recognize ongoing benefits from your cloud transformation no matter your mix of private, enterprise or hyperscale cloud.
  17. What are the characteristics and variables of a true cloud operating model? If you start in the upper right, it highlights everything running in a VMware environment (both public and private environments). As we move to the middle right, the focus is on cloud native applications and workloads. Those could be container services and all the variety of SaaS options. To the bottom right, it is all about data protection, disaster recovery and incorporating desktop and edge environments. To the bottom left, it is all about simplifying the management of different clouds to extract the benefit to a full cloud operating model. Standardization around networking, security, visibility and automation. All those areas that help streamline and simplify infrastructure management. In the upper left, it is about support and advisory services including assessments (what applications and workloads belong in which cloud, etc.). This also includes cloud migration process and strategy to get things done properly the first time as well as ongoing support (day to day operations). Lastly, acknowledge that some applications will never run in a cloud model but still have a physical footprint that integrates into a cloud operating model (colocation). From these variables we see that hyperscalers (AWS, MS Azure and GCP) perform very well when applications are born in the cloud. They are also able to provide desktop and edge services but when it comes to IT support, physical data centers or a public VMware cloud they don’t have many options. You can run a private VMware cloud but it becomes very costly.
  18. When contrasted with Expedient you find that we are almost the inverse of the hyperscalers. Expedient is incredible strong providing VMware workload capabilities. Very strong with support and migration services along with data protection and disaster recovery (DR). Expedient has been recognized by Gartner multiple times for its DRaaS capabilities. A key area of differentiation for Expedient is in the bottom left covering multi-cloud operations. Expedient provides multi-cloud capabilities that stretch across all IT environments from on-prem to a hyperscale. We enable clients to streamline their operations.
  19. You need to make this an “and” conversation, which means Expedient is not looking to replace hyperscalers but rather we augment and extend the cloud operating model. A one cloud size fits all model doesn’t work. This is about running workloads and applications on the right platform supported by standardized management and monitoring. This way our client’s can realize the benefit of a full cloud operating model.
  20. Clients can get into a cloud operating model much faster. No need to refactor every application. Expedient is about lift and optimize versus lift and shift. This results in substantial cost savings. This also means buying pools of resources versus individual instances. Less waste and greater efficiency in the way resources are utilized. Leverage existing IT staff with their VMware skill sets, backed by Expedient support and guidance. Expedient is a long-term partner helping clients plan for the future. We provide the tools and platform (Expedient CTRL Suite) that can help with the day-to-day IT automation and running container environments. We provide the networking and management tools to connect with other hyperscale service providers. Use the same technology to manage all your IT environments.
  21. Expedient can provide you with FREE access to HPE’s Cloud Physics tool to get: an accurate inventory of your environment Understand opportunities to right-size the environment Visualize network dependencies Identify potential risks for systems that are or are becoming end of life Compare costs between cloud providers It takes about 30 minutes with your team to set it up and we will review the data together and provide an overall interpretation of the information.
