Enterprise Service Providers’ Four (4) Step Roadmap
Hyperscalers Channel Partner Type: Enterprise-IT Cloud aka Enterprise Service Providers
Intended audience - Enterprise IT and Channel Partners
Cloud is changing at the speed of light.
CTO and CIO say commercial public clouds present serious business-limitations including:
Then, when asked about the inverse – on the barriers and challenges faced to deliver in-house cloud services as part of a private, community or public cloud model, CTOs and CIOs identify:
This is a major problem!
CIOs and CTOs need to realise the promised benefits of cloud computing. But with each cloud strategy alternative offering a unique set of organisational problems and challenges, which cloud strategy, AKA ‘cloud path’ does IT select?
Keynotes for Enterprise IT:
• Retain control over your infrastructure and your data
Four (4) Step Roadmap
Step 1 - Requirements Gathering, Analysis and Definition of Selection Criteria. Documented.
Start with a snapshot | blueprint of the enterprise’s current: Standard Operating Environment SOE. Remember, an enterprise’s SOE is very unique and ultimately, a decision will have to be made. To either:
Commoditize the enterprise’s software-IP as part of an appliance. That can carry the full SOE software stack: From apps and programmes, to operating systems, to orchestration software options, to hypervisor or bare metal options, all the way down to file and storage system options and choice of OS again. Or;
Take up an existing appliance, complete with all the necessary functions needed to carry an enterprise’s apps, programmes and operating systems.
This is no easy decision. And there’s simply no way to prove which is the right alternative going forward until thorough quantitative, qualitative and risk analysis is performed to test and asses each alternative. Only then, could the best possible alternative be selected.
Step 2 – Select: Commoditize Your Software-IP | or, Take-up an Existing Appliance
In step 1 we gathered the requirements, done the analyses and had defined the selection | test criteria. Step 2 is all about working through the selection criteria using various processes, tools, system architectures, and methods to determine and select the best possible appliance-alternative. These include:
To commoditize this software-IP, Hyperscalers has developed both a ‘design process’ and a utility being the Virtual Machine Performance Management Utility ‘VMPMU’ which together, assists in developing and proving designs for Hyperscale appliances. Pre-engineered and standardised, these appliances offer macro and micro: SDDC IaaS PaaS SaaS providers, including enterprise service providers - IT a newfound means of ‘springing-up’ capacity from any datacentre floor, quickly, reliably, and at a fraction of historical costs.
Commoditize Your Software-IP on Hyperscale and or Tier 1 Original Hardware
Hyperscale Defined: Hardware used by the macro service providers – Facebook, Microsoft, Google and Alibaba.
Growing adoption by small to large cloud service providers.
Tier 1 Original Defined: Hardware currently in use, or planned to be in use by the Tier 1 OEM.
Step 3 – Go production
And eliminate, or the very least mitigate, project risk using pre-engineered appliances that deliver known-outcomes. Affirmed at time of PoC.
Step 4 – Enable Enterprise IT
with options of selecting a preferred on-premise operator: IT (recommended), Cloud Service Provider, or a qualified 3rd party. Channel Partners are advised to operate, educate and perform a phased hand over of an enterprise’s-own cloud.
