  • Modern Platform

    20 Sep 2017

  • Agile, DevOps, Design for Operations different facets of the same

    essential part of the Digital Journey

    The four key attributes of Modern Platform

    The value of Modern Platform

    Summary

    Agenda

  • This DevOps thing, and why Im talking

    about Design for Operations

  • All Industries Evolve

    Design for Purpose

    Design for Operations

    Design for Manufacture

  • IT Is No Different

    Design for Purpose

    Design for Operations

    Design for Manufacture

  • Agility, Agility, Agility

    High-performing IT organizations report experiencing:

    200x

    2,555x

    more frequentdeployments

    lower change failure rate

    shorter lead times

    faster recovery from failures

    Business Agility

    Agile Software Platform

    Agile Infrastructure

  • Being Agile to WinJohn Boyds OODA Loop

  • Getting a more agile infrastructure:

    Modern Platform

  • The four qualities of Modern Platform

    1. Partner Engineered System

    2. Hyper Converged Infrastructure

    3. Small Entry Level

    4. Value Optimised Architecture

  • Partner Engineered System

    Reduces time to value, because Hitachi takes responsibility for:

    Build

    Integration of components

    Testing and validation

    The result is a turnkey system thats data centre ready 45 days after

    placing an order

  • Hyper Converged Infrastructure

    A building block for the Software Defined Data Centre (SDDC)

    VSAN for Software Defined Storage

    NSX for Software Defined Networking

    vCenter for a familiar admin environment and API

    vCloud Foundation (VCF) pulls everything together

    SDDC Manager for ongoing updates etc.

  • Small Entry Level

    Field sales told us that 100VMs was the sweet spot for opportunities that we were missing

    But price needed to stay in line with previous offerings using Hyper Converged Infrastructure

  • Value Optimised Architecture

    Focus was on total cost of ownership - $/VM

    Software defined means license cost dominated

    Single socket systems to get our desired entry level

    Half the sockets half the license cost

  • The value of Modern Platform

  • $0.00

    $500.00

    $1,000.00

    $1,500.00

    $2,000.00

    $2,500.00

    $3,000.00

    $3,500.00

    $4,000.00

    $4,500.00

    The target we set ourselves a year ago

  • Modern Platform Value Proposition

    By Leveraging Hitachis R&D:

    DXC reduces latency, and orients DXC investments to higher order/ differentiated services.

    Faster technology adoption & GTM cycles with a joint governance model

    Pre-integration can include:

    Business continuity services from STaaS

    AT&T network delivery

    BPS and Security wrapper

    Both Capex and Opex models available

    Can address both horizontal and vertical/industry use cases

  • Better, Faster, Cheaper

    Better through life maintenance experience

    Faster time to market for new hardware

    &

    Faster from order to install

    Lower cost per VM

  • A first step in design for operations

    Turnkey operation addresses day 1

    VMware SDDC is familiar for day 2+

    We can now push up the stack

  • Were nearing the end

  • Summary

    Fully integrated Compute, Storage, Networking, Software and

    through life-support, scaling non-disruptively from entry level

    suitability to rack scale all consumed via industry standard APIs

    Software Defined, Hyper-Converged, All Flash

    Infrastructure.

    Partner Engineered. Ingredients are fully integrated,

    designed, engineered, delivered and supported as one.

    Simplified Deployment and Through-Life Operations.

    Think BIG, Start small. Scale as you need.

  • Design thinking can drive us towards better optimised systems

    Lots has changed in IT over the last 20 years

    So why do servers still look the same?

    Multiple benefits are within our grasp:

    Cheaper bill of materials == less acquisition cost

    Fewer things to fail == greater reliability == less operational cost

    Lower power draw == greater density == less operational cost

    The Journey doesnt end here
