Data Virtualization Meets the Network

The acquisition of Composite Software by Cisco has created quite a stir in the enterprise IT community.  Data virtualization and networking – how does that make sense?

One should assume that before it invested $180M in Composite, Cisco must have had something in mind.

And a recent report entitled Data Virtualization Meets the Network from analyst firm EMA provides several pretty clear insights into just what that something might be.

According to EMA, “sophisticated users and applications, along with less expensive hardware and software, better and faster technology, and new valuable data sources are causing a shift away from single platforms solutions such as enterprise data warehouses towards a more diverse or hybrid ecosystem (watch video) focused on matching data type, workload and platform capabilities to execute these workload.

Hybrid strategies allow for deeper business insights and more sophisticated workloads but often demand more than traditional data integration tools can deliver. As more platforms are utilized and data is more diverse and geographically separated, data virtualization becomes a solution that’s critical for many companies to utilize.”

So that is the case for data virtualization.  But why combine data virtualization and networking.  The report addresses this point directly.  “As data virtualization has matured to meet these new demands, the networks sitting at either end of the data virtualization technology, have become the bottlenecks to speed and scale.

Data virtualization technologies access data where it resides versus physically moving it to other platforms. This model allows for a more agile environment saving time and money when managing data in complex environments. Data virtualization platforms must rely upon query optimization along relatively fixed network paths to enable the transmission of this data.” Check this video dialog with Shawn Rogers, VP of Research Enterprise Management Associate .

“The acquisition of Composite Software is a wise move for Cisco as it combines the functionality of data virtualization and Cisco’s ability to understand the network as well as enact change within it to allow data virtualization to be executed at an even higher level than previous technologies allowed.”

This blog covers the high points of EMA’s research report.  If you would like to see the complete version click here.

Historic Sports Precinct in Sydney, Australia Leaps into the Future with Cisco

One of Australia’s most prestigious and hallowed sporting grounds is the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) which is where Test Cricket was first played in 1883 between Australia and England.  While some things have not changed about the majesty of the sport since 1883, market trends indicate that fans’ expectations have changed.  We are living in an environment where sports fans are choosing the couch over the stadium due to the media-rich experience it offers, with live statistics and interactive replays the norm.

The Sydney Cricket Ground Trust, which oversees the SCG as well as neighbouring Allianz Stadium (Sydney Football Stadium), today announced its decision to make two of Australia’s most iconic sports venues Australia’s most technically advanced and fan friendly stadia with the Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi solution.

The Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi solution will be rolled out by 2014 and is designed to create a match-day experience offering an exceptional level of engagement during major sports events. The new technology not only satisfies a demand for connectivity in what becomes a congested cellular network on match-days but has the capability to provide patrons with unique benefits such as access to game-day and venue information as well as replays and the ability to plug into ticketing and merchandise point of sale.

“Fan expectations are greater than ever, mandating a more connected sporting venue that enables fans to share and engage with more content and people from any device, anywhere in the stadium. Cisco is excited and honoured to be a part of the SCG’s long-term road map for transforming one of the most historic sporting precincts in Australia and creating new experiences for fans in the future,” said Ken Boal, managing director of Cisco Australia and New Zealand.

This evolutionary move by the SCG Trust to connect its patrons is an important one as venues fight against the home viewing experience. The recently released Cisco Internet of Everything Value Index found that only 0.6% of connectable objects are connected to the Internet today but that will change in coming years, positioning the SCG and the SFS as world class environments to watch sport.

With the untapped potential of the Internet of Everything, in the future we can expect to see balls and bats, sidelines and goalposts connected to the Internet and networked to patrons at venues to give real-time statistical analysis of the game. Combined with the atmosphere that venues like the SCG and Allianz Stadium are famous for creating, the overall match-day experience should see the precinct pushed into the upper echelons of world class sporting venues, matching famous stadiums like Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Spain and the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in the U.S., which have already rolled out Cisco Connected Stadium technology.

With Cricket, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Aussie Rules and Football games all being played at these two venues, the Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi solution at the SCG and Allianz Stadia will provide the perfect entertainment platform for fans from many different sports to be able to experience this new match day experience.

For more information please see the announcement from the SCG Trust here.

SDN: Cisco Domain Ten tells us it’s not (just) about the Network

In my first SDN blog, I asserted that “Services” — that is technical support, professional and consultancy services — are the missing “S” in the SDN debate.  I’d now like to apply our Cisco Domain TenSM framework “in anger” :-) to examine in more detail the impacts that SDN may have on your IT services and operations.  While come of our competitors will only talk about the network switches and new device protocols,  l’ll show how it’s not just the network switches that you should be concerned with: your SDN and Cisco ONE journey could involve impacts across multiple “domains”.

As I bogged about Cisco Domain Ten this past year, I’ve positioned it as a mechanism to help you on your data center journey.  Let me now extend that use — SDN after all is more than just a data center technology play.  My experience with Cisco Domain Ten over the past year has helped me realize that it is, in fact, an excellent framework for considering impacts to more general IT services, and not just to  the data center .  I’ll also illustrate my case with both service provider and enterprise/business/public sector examples.

The following diagram summarizes the areas impacted — let’s discuss each one.

SDN Impacts - via Cisco Domain Ten

SDN Impacts — via Cisco Domain Ten

In Domains 1 and 2 is where most of the SDN technology debate is focused — namely the network devices, protocols and abstractions (APIs) required to drive network behaviour — in essence, programmability and control.  In my opinion, it’s the “domains” above this that are all too often forgotten in the technology debate.  So let’s shine some light on these impacts.

Domain 3 — Automation and Orchestration — is the area of potentially biggest impact — in my opinion.  With more network APIs being made available, via say an OpenFlow Controller or via Cisco’s onePK API, there is significant opportunity to integrate your management and orchestration tools with the network.   This may involve you working with your OSS (Operational Support System) and NMS (Network Management System) vendors to have them update their applications to use the new SDN APIs, and going through an application upgrade process in your Network Operations Center (NOC).  It may involve you upgrading your custom-developed apps and provisioning scripts.  Software development is not cheap and it can unfortunately be the source of project delays so please don’t underestimate the costs of such an exercise.  Such costs and risks are usually noticeable by their absence when our competitors describe the “nirvana” of their SDN products: re-engineering or even just upgrading an OSS  or Systems Management suite of tools is never a straightforward exercise  (15 years working in NMS and OSS taught me that! — call me a cynic :-) ).

 You may even envisage new network services and behaviors — that you may expose via your end user interface or User Portal (Domain 4) and IT Services Catalog (Domain 5).  For me, this is where the real opportunity of SDN arises.  Sure, some will argue that you may save some money on potentially cheaper network switches.  However, you may find that you spend significantly to upgrade your NMS and OSS, which may make for a positive (or negative!!!) RoI for your SDN project.  What the smart companies will do in my opinion is to generate new network services, delivering flexibility, agility and business value add that out-flanks their competitors focused only on cost reduction.  You may devise new classes of software applications (Domain 8) that solve some of today’s networking challenges.  Application development may be an area you need to upskill your staff for, providing excellent career development opportunities as well as new business opportunities. Time will tell here.  In my mind this is where the exciting opportunities of SDN lie.

With SDN being a relatively new technology, there will undoubtedly be challenges that arise as it matures.  Security in SDN is one such area of concern.  Security vulnerabilities in new architectures (e.g. the centralised SDN controller, or in multi-layer virtualized networks) have still to be fully understood.  The services we provide in Domain 9 “Security and Compliance”, I am sure, will be in demand as customers evaluate SDN technologies.  In fact, I was at a customer meeting just last week, and “security vulnerabilities” [in SDN] was one of the 2 biggest customer concerns (the other being the need for a concrete business case in order to justify their transition.

Finally, last but by no means least, what are the Operations Management (Process and Governance — Domain 10) implications?   There may be operational process changes and new procedures required for device and software controller certification.  You may need to upgrade fault management OSS tools to versions that can communicate to new SDN devices.  Of course if you make use of Cisco’s onePK API, to existing devices, your current fault management systems won’t be impacted — a key advantage of the Cisco ONE strategy.  And as you introduce new SDN devices, consider overlay networks and investigate OpenFlow controllers, make sure you evaluate the available troubleshooting tools and techniques for each of these, and make sure that, in the rush to SDN, such tools have actually been developed.  Your operations team will thank you for your due diligence here!

As you can see, Cisco Domain Ten provides a useful analysis to help you understand the challenges of new IT services and technologies, including SDN.  It’s helped me illustrate a range of challenges that are all to often missing from the SDN discussions across the industry.  Cisco Domain Ten can help you generate focus on the key changes you need to make in order to really exploit SDN and Cisco ONE.  Finally please do remember that Cisco Services and our Cisco Domain Ten, SDN and Cisco ONE experts are ready to help you on this journey with our portfolio of Cisco ONE services!
