Businesses maintain groups of servers on-site to fulfill various business needs including: Network Servers / Domain Controllers File Storage Application Servers (CRM, ERP, Databases, Billing) Web Servers (Hosting of web sites and applications) These servers consume the same resources that any on-site IT resource consumes: Space, Power, Cooling, Administrative time, Maintenance Fees, Capex Slide 10 Whats missing from the data room? These on-site servers generally need, but do not always get: Fire Suppression Backup Power Failover / Redundant equipment Monitoring 24x7 support Slide 11 Traditional Server Environments Todays server hardware is designed to run a single operating system. Todays operating systems (Windows, Linux) are generally designed to have complete control over the hardware on which they run. Most server applications are designed to run discretely on an individual server This leaves most machines vastly underutilized as they are generally utilized for a specific application or purpose like: A File Server A Web Server A Mail Server Slide 12 Server Virtualization Pictorial Typical Model: One Server, One Application Virtual Machine: ONE server, Multiple Applications Virtual Infrastructure: Multiple Servers, Multiple and REDUNDANT Applications Slide 13 High-Level Benefits of Cloud Computing Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Reduced hardware footprint Improved performance and reliability Built-in Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity Lower hardware and software maintenance Instant software updates, accessibility Pay only for what is used Agile; make changes on demand Its easy being GREEN; energy efficient Slide 14 What is vServer? vServer is a Virtual Private Cloud Server that leverages the scalability and failover of public cloud services with the privacy and security of dedicated hosting environments. Slide 15 vServer Features Virtual Private Cloud Server on Evolve IPs enterprise-class clusters East and West Coast Availability Zones Server resources (CPU, RAM, Disk) are guaranteed to each Virtual Server instance High Availability - Server Failover Built-in Private Network Structure - Private VLAN, Switching, 802.1q VLANs Private Security Firewall - True Stateful-inspection Firewall Various operating system, software and hardware options Administrative level server access 24x7 monitoring and fault resolution Slide 16 Traditional Desktop Environments Each employee uses a desktop or laptop that IT must maintain. Ability to run software is based on the equipment on which it is installed. Local disk stores OS, applications and data. Upgrades and software are deployed on a one to one basis. Slide 17 The problem with Desktop Environments Mobility equals risk Remote generally means you cant secure, maintain and upgrade the desktop cleanly Resource requirements increase with time The more you need to do, the more powerful a device you need. Often times a device it too slow before it fails Single Point of Failure One users productivity is generally tied to one device Expensive 70% of the Total Cost of Ownership of a desktop is spent in desk side support. Management Nightmare Hard Drives, Memory, Processor, Networking Cards, Mother boards are dedicated PER device and regularly fail Slide 18 Desktop Virtualization Pictorial Typical Desktop: One Desktop, One OS, One Employee Virtual Desktop: Access to a single desktop, from any device Slide 19 Top Reasons to Consider Desktop Virtualization Economics Reduce the total cost of desktop ownership by almost 70% through remote troubleshooting, ease of deployment, and extended life of older equipment. Productivity Users can gain access to their desktop from any location on any device, while administrators can support and deploy from a centralized location. Scalability Meet new requirements by adding additional resources to the virtual PC rather than upgrading equipment Performance Immediately rectify PC problems by remotely restarting, or reimaging the desktop saving IT time and putting employees back to work immediately. Security Provide external users with secure access to company apps and data. Enforce end-to-end security, consistently, across all users, regardless of device. Slide 20 What is the Evolved Office Desktop? The Evolved Office: Desktop is an un-tethered virtual workspace that can be accessed from anywhere at any time on a variety of devices for a predictable monthly fee.

What if something catastrophic happens? I have tape back-up, but 1.How will I get the data and how long will it take its on the other side of town, another state, or in storage? 2.Where am I going to restore it to if my building is flooded or burned down? How long will it take to get hardware? 3.How long will it take me to restore the data from tapes? 4.How will give my employees access applications that live somewhere else? 5.What does the downtime cost my business? What does it cost my business for every hour of downtime? Are the weather events anomalies or normal patterns? Slide 28 The s to ask and why: Phase 1 Identifying Opportunity This series of questions helps to uncover the areas where you can position Cloud Computing as a vehicle to provide business, financial, or strategic (DR, Security, etc.) benefits to your prospect Phase 2 Qualifying Opportunity This series of questions helps to expand upon the opportunities you have identified and better understand what barriers (if any) may exist that could prohibit your opportunity. Minimally, we want to understand what roadblocks we need to over- come upfront. Phase 3 Gathering Details This series of questions gets into the weeds of what is in place currently. The answers to these questions will provide valuable data on which solutions should be presented and their potential impact to the existing environment. Slide 29 The s to ask and why Identifying Opportunity (Phase 1) What are the IT priorities for your company over the next few years? What is the average refresh cycle for your company on hardware, licensing, and other data center equipment? Does your organization have a buying preference (Capex versus Opex) for technology? How do you ensure your most critical business applications are always available to customers and end users? Is your business subject to any compliance or regulatory obligations? Which ones? How do you manage security and protect the electronic assets/intellectual capital of your organization? Is there currently a business continuity plan in place for IT and business critical systems? Please describe? Have you evaluated any cloud-sourcing options for your business? It is estimated that 70% of IT support time is spent on desktop administration. Is your experience the same? Slide 30 The s to ask and why Qualifying Opportunity (Phase 2) What is the approximate age of existing hardware and systems? What are some of the pain points in administering and managing your current IT environment? Do you feel you are staffed appropriately to meet all of the technology objectives of your business? Are you in an area that has environmental challenges such as frequent power outages, flood zone, etc.? Do you have users that require mobile computing such as laptops or tablet devices? How are you dealing with users who want to use their own devices? Do you have in-house IT support, or do you outsource to a qualified vendor? Have you done any research on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and the benefits of IT centralization?
