Transcript of The Plan
WAN is expensive, Internet is cheap
and permits VPNs Infrastructure More commodity storage, less expensive SAN The most powerful and scalable infrastructures are built on commodity hardware (Google, Facebook, Amazon ...), why invest in complexity and cost? Infrastructure Design scalable infrastructure for the cloud Cloud services are a big opportunity for fast provisioning and easily scaling of an IT infrastructure, but you need to "design for the cloud" Infrastructure Creativity and smartness are key factors for Company Success
Modern workers love their productivity tools and gadgets
Too restrictive and dumb policies kill their creativity and motivation
Controlling everything, restricting everything, forbidding everything kills the Company In a highly restrictive and grey environment, conformism is stimulated
Smart engineers don't like and stay away from this environment
Traditional companies, unable to change, are wasting the most important resource: the creativity of their peoples The old IT thinking that it's possible to deploy applications on a highly standardized client platform is broken
Consultants, suppliers and other external workers have to use company applications on their own devices
Company applications must be able to run on any standard compliant browser or device
Usage of modern way of sharing information (Dropbox, Google Apps etc) must be adopted, not forbidden Google, Amazon, Facebook have shown that powerful, infinitely scalable solutions can be built with cheap commoditized hardware and open source software
Corporate IT should carefully evaluate solutions based on very expensive hardware and high-end and expensive storage
Virtualization is a good think, but very expensive technologies are not always the best path to follow Amazon, Google and others have built a cheap and powerful cloud infrastructure using commoditized hardware
Corporate IT cannot compete with these offerings using expensive servers and Storage Area Networks and costly virtualization licenses
Fast Internet access is commonplace and relatively cheap, the trip to cloud services is really fast today Computer industry makes much more money on consumer products than on professional products
Without the burden of obsolete compatibility the progress of consumer devices is much faster
Consumer devices are much better designed, cheaper, fun to use and can dramatically boost productivity everywhere, everytime Customers, suppliers, consultants and mobile workers are already on Internet
Services have to be moved to the cloud, on the Internet
Who needs an expensive WAN when we can use cheap Internet and VPNs? As much as possible move services on the cloud
Design what remains to run on redundant array of commodity hardware and storage
Who needs an expensive Storage Area Network? May be a redesign is needed Don't trust push button solutions to move existing services to cloud
We have to redesign and design new services for the cloud to achieve fast provisioning and easy scaling
Not overnight, but in few years, moving everything (almost) on the cloud is cheap and feasible Fight to change Don't being afraid to Change is not enough, we must fight to change Don't get trapped by wrong technology: away from Microsoft, IBM etc.
Don't rule out Open Source solutions, often they are the best
Smart engineers are key factors for a successful company
"No One Ever Got Fired for Buying ..." is the opposite of what is needed in a Modern Corporate IT
