Transcript of UKPN presentation

1.Assessment of cloud-readiness
for the three applications
by our Nimbus
360 team
2.Analyse source-code with our Nimbus
360 tool
3.Identify supported and unsupported features
4.Complete a deployment strategy, considering workarounds for unsupported
features
5.Purchase
a trial
Azure subscription
6. Migrate the
three applications, along with databases, to Azure, alongside data migration
7. Set up
alerts based on various parameters
8. Test
and
validate
11. Improve continually
We reviewed the tooling, monitoring and management processes (such as provisioning, billing, event management, alerting, etc.), and developed integration services to ‘fill the gaps’
We selected three applications to demonstrate how we would migrate them, and how they would operate on the Azure platform
We reviewed adaptations required to our UKPN service model to reflect the exploitation of cloud service providers and platforms (such as Azure)

UKPN presentation
June 2016
The cost benefits should be significant compared with the current infrastructure costs
Usage and billing should be monitored and alerts set up for whenever the usage exceeds the agreed threshold
As far as possible, IaaS instances should be avoided, because the cost is very high compared to PaaS
The instance type and operational tier should be selected carefully so that the cost calculations do not change drastically later
Any pricing change by Microsoft Azure will have direct impact on operational costs. This should be part of the contractual agreement
Common services should be shared across the applications
The availability requirements for each application should be clearly ascertained as they will have a direct impact on cost proportions. The applications which need 24/7 availability will cost more

How we developed the PoC
9. Monitor performance
10.Monitor billing and costs
Our PoC assessment process
We successfully migrated the applications — OAT, Ecat and Scout — to the Azure cloud platform
The DataFactory service to load files into SQL on scheduler basis was successfully implemented — resolving SSIS dependency
Alerts were successfully set up for various parameters, such CPU Percentage, Memory Percentage, DTU Percentage, Database Size etc.
We developed a cost-efficient deployment plan with identified instance types
We selected common services for the complete portfolio
We documented the process for cloud migration and learnt many lessons
We gained valuable experience on cloud enablement
With the assessment finished, we now have the ability to identify: risks, non-supported features and plans for mitigating risk in the future
We were not able to integrate the application with corporate AD of UKPN, due to
non-availability of AD in the cloud environment
We could do positive testing on the selected applications, but could not do any negative testing to identify failure test cases
Performance testing could not be done
We could not avoid IaaS instance due to SSRS. There is no support for SSRS in PaaS. Hence we have to provision IaaS instance which results in high costs and it is against the architecture principles/standards
