Virtualization Strategy

The overall objectives of the CCC Virtualization Strategy are the creation of a common, secure and flexible virtualized infrastructure that is available across the CCC departments to:
Improving CCC service delivery Improving access to CCC services, and Increasing the efficiency of CCC service delivery Providing a secure and resilient shared environment and services at greater speed and lower cost.

To achieve this, the virtualization strategy sets out the vision for the following:

Pooled. All the resources in the cloud are organized and managed as a common shared pool. Pooling usually begins with servers and storage, which set the scene for data and applications. This, of course, demands common methods for structuring, connecting, and accessing the resources. Virtualized. All the resources in the pool are packaged in electronic shipping containers. Each contains not only the resource itself, but also the business rules governing its access, use, and management. Networked. All these modular resources are accessible over a network using standard interfaces that enable them to be combined in lego fashion. In more technical terms, they are available as Web services.

With the above vision, CCC virtualization strategy to achieve the following service platforms: The Network Platform: A single holistic and more secure network infrastructure that will deliver converged voice and data communications enabling secure fixed and mobile communications for greater capability at a lower price. The network infrastructure will provide services with open and interoperable standards in the operating environment for the CCC Virtualization Infrastructure. The Storage Platform: A centralized storage systems to help OGCIO automatically manage and optimize the delivery of rich, unstructured information across large-scale, global virtualized storage environments. The policy-based management, massive scalability, multi-tenancy, object based storage, multiprotocol support storage systems that will deliver OGCIO with a low-cost, highdensity storage system that offers ease of implementation and service across the government sector with guaranteed and measurable performance, security and reliability. Applications Sharing Platform: A complete Government Application environment and virtualized infrastructure platform which enables sharing and

reuse of online business applications, services and components across the government sector. New business that reuses the existing assets can be deployed faster and at reduced cost rather than create bespoke solutions each time a requirement is identified.
Shared services Platform: A virtualized infrastructure which is service orientated has been building both within and between departments across different sectors. Service Automation can be considered to provide the best strategy for deploying projects that enable a dynamic and scalable business response and improve business/IT alignment.

Desktop services Platform: A new set of common designs for desktop services across the government sector. The government staff will access to functions such as email, word processing, spreadsheets and internet browsing through the virtualized desktop platform. A set of common and standardized desktop designs and models which conform to information assurance and sustainability requirements will be created to enhance interoperability and deliver shared service at greater capability at a lower price. Architecture and standards: The technical architecture and standards work underpins all elements of the CCC virtualization Strategy. This will assure security, interoperability and common data standards, which will facilitate transition of supplier or product, as well as data sharing and the joining up of government services. This will provide interface guidelines how there virtualized infrastructure across the government sectors can be federated in the future to archive interoperability and resources sharing.
IT Green Strategy: The virtualization strategy should set the goals for reducing the cabob emissions. Much of the short-term cost reduction comes. Reduction in power consumption and cooling costs to reduce the carbon footprint through consolidation of hardware and virtualization of digital assets and better management of assets provision and capacity that have traditionally been overbuilt to handle peak capacity requirements. The IT green strategy should embedded in all elements of energy saving and will deliver significant cash savings from smarter working practices as well as reduced energy consumption, alongside lower carbon emissions. Information security and assurance Strategy: A security model which cover their identities, information and infrastructure will be developed that reconciles scalability and multi-tenancy with the need for trust. Data sharing is an essential element of joining up services and providing personalization in the virtualized environment. A well defined and implemented security model will provide a effective, proportionate management of information risk of trust and verification relationships include access control, data security, compliance and event management.

International awareness on virtualization standards: The CCC virtualization strategy should take into consideration of the virtualization standards of other virtualization strategy and standards that adopted in other public and government sector globally. A key element of this strategy, therefore, is to ensure alignment and compliance with agreements, decisions and treaties to support international working.
