    There are several factors driving company resilience service architectures & solutions over the next few years

    Shift in focus from IT Continuity to Service ContinuityGlobal economic crisis forces re-examination of facilities plansIncreased virtualization of technologyMovement towards a Cloud Computing ModelIncreased Regulatory Compliance needsNeed for longer term storageRealization of human capital componentsGreen - power and water considerationsImproved integration of business continuity tools

    Focus is shifting from IT DR to IT service continuity


    Companies are more focused on disaster recovery.Reactive response to catastrophic eventsInvestments in IT recovery and workforce recovery were seen as expensive insurance policies.Downtime is measured in hours to days.Lack of focus on day-to-day events that cause the majority of downtimePoor planning, reporting, and metrics


    Companies are more focused on IT service continuity.Limit downtime (unplanned and planned) as much as possible.Achieving continuous availability is seen as competitive advantage.Downtime is measured in minutes to hours.Focus on all causes of downtime, not just catastrophic events.Emphasis on planning, preparedness, and adoption of standards

    IT spending is deteriorating, with CIOs stating increasing risks of budget cuts. A Goldman Sachs survey indicates macro concerns weighing on spending expectations

    Source: IBM GTS Market Insights Analysis based on Goldman Sachs, IT Spending Survey: Downward bias continues, September 8, 2008; UBS, CIO survey results for IT spending are in, June 20, 2008; UBS, CIO Pulse: Snapshot of IT Trends I T Spend Suffers With the Economy, October 1, 2008

    In June, majority of CIOs surveyed by UBS said that macro economic concerns are not negatively impacting overall IT spending

    Goldman Sachs IT Spending Survey Indices

    The tech capital spending index (representing spending only on new equipment and software) dropped to 53.5, versus 58.0 in our prior survey and well below the year- ago reading of 66.0

    Total IT spending index (which includes salaries, services, depreciation, occupancy, etc.) came in at 51.0, down from 53.5 in the prior survey in June, but down significantly from the year-ago mark of 72.5.

    However, in UBS recent survey (Sept/Oct), 40% of CIOs indicated they had already cut budgets or expect to do so in 2H08, and another 43% stated they

    are closely monitoring the situation

    Goldman Sachs estimates that:

    60% of servers can be virtualizedbut that only 10% are already.

    The Virtualization market is enormous: 50% of servers

    2. Large Application servers(DB, ERP, SAP, Oracle, SAS, DB2, SQL, )

    25-30% Could be slowly virtualized

    Any cloud implementation must have some key resilience characteristics

    Device and location independence enables users to access systems regardless of their location or what device they are using, e.g., PC, mobile. Multi-tenancy enables sharing of resources, and costs, among a large pool of users, allowing for:

    Centralization of infrastructure in areas with lower costs, e.g., real estate, electricity, etc. Peak-load capacity increases (users need not engineer for highest possible load levels) Utilization and efficiency improvements for systems that are often only 10-20% utilized.

    On-demand allocation and de-allocation of CPU, storage and network bandwidth Performance is monitored and consistent, but can be affected by insufficient bandwidth or high network load. Reliability is enhanced by way of multiple redundant sites, which makes it suitable for business continuity and disaster recovery, however IT and business managers are able to do little when an outage hits them.Scalability meets changing user demands, e.g., Flash crowds, quickly without users having to engineer for peak loads. Massive scalability and large user bases are common, but not an absolute requirement. Security typically improves due to centralization of data, increased security-focused resources, etc., but raises concerns about loss of control over certain sensitive data. Accesses are typically logged but accessing the audit logs themselves can be difficult or impossible. Sustainability is achieved through improved resource utilization, more efficient systems, and carbon neutrality. Nonetheless, computers and associated infrastructure are majorconsumers of energy.
