IDC云服务商集中发力 世纪互联独占鳌头

IDC Cloud Service Providers Make Forays Together

21Vianet Heads the Ranking List

随着云计算成为当下最热门的IT领域,国内的IDC厂商纷纷转型或者进行业务延伸,推出与第三方合作的云产品或是自主研发的云产品,希望分食到云计算这块大蛋糕。中国电信2012年就推出了自主研发的云计算平台“翼云”;国内最大的中立数据中心服务商世纪互联在2012年底与微软达成合作将Azure云平台带入中国,并在2013年底与IBM达成合作将CMS企业级云平台带入中国;与此同时,宽带资本也在2013年年底达成与亚马逊的合作。中国的IDC行业竞争正在逐步从传统托管领域升级成云计算领域的竞争。

As cloud computing has become the currently hottest IT sector, the IDC enterprises in China have successively made their business transformation or extension by launching cloud products either through cooperation with third parties or independently developed, hoping to take a bite of the big cloud computing cake. China Telecom rolled out its own cloud computing platform “E Cloud” in 2012; 21Vianet as the largest neutral data center service provider achieved the cooperation with Microsoft at the end of 2012 to introduce the cloud platform Azure into China, and also achieved the cooperation with IBM at the end of 2013 to introduce the enterprise-level cloud platform CMS into China; meanwhile, China Broadband Capital achieved the cooperation with Amazon.com at the end of 2013. The competition in the IDC industry in China has been gradually upgrading from traditional hosting service competition to cloud computing service competition.

互联网周刊举办的“中国IDC云服务综合能力”评估主要是基于IDC 云服务商的资源能力、技术能力和服务能力三个范围进行考察。目前IDC企业参与云服务的模式大致有两类:企业自主研发云产品,以及与国际云平台合作云产品,无论是哪种业务模式,这三个维度都是IDC企业涉足云计算行业的主要影响因素。而对于后一种业务模式来说,IDC云服务商不仅仅需要对最终客户提供高质量的产品和服务,同时,需要能够达到国际云合作伙伴对于运维流程、SLA等极为严苛的要求,对于IDC云服务厂商的能力要求和挑战都会更大。

This ranking list introduces 3 indicators—resource capability, technical capability and service capability—to evaluate the IDC cloud service providers in China. Currently, there are two modes in which the IDC enterprises participate in cloud services: Enterprises independently develop cloud products and provide cloud products through cooperation with international cloud platforms. In either business mode, the 3 dimensions are the primary influential factors for IDC enterprises setting foot in the cloud computing industry. However, in the latter mode, IDC cloud service providers are required to not only provide high-quality products and services for end users, but also meet the extremely harsh requirements of international partners on operation and maintenance procedures, SLA and other aspects. This can be a bigger challenge for the capabilities of the IDC cloud service providers.

资源能力:IDC云服务商,你的地基有多稳?

Resource capability: How solid is your foundation?

资源能力主要指机房、机柜、带宽资源,IDC企业不仅需要拥有足够的基础设施资源,并且需要能够保证这些资源的质量。做云计算就像建造一座大楼,带宽资源就像是大楼的地皮,中国带宽价格的昂贵程度也可以与土地价格相匹敌,尤其是能与全国三大运营商互联互通的优质带宽就像是CBD区域的土地价格,寸土寸金。因此,云计算的竞争不可避免的是资源的竞争,你有多少机房、多少机柜、多少带宽资源决定了你在云计算领域的规模可以做到多大。

Resource capability refers to computer rooms, cabinets and bandwidth resources. IDC enterprises need not only adequate infrastructure resources, but also the ability to ensure the quality of these resources. Providing cloud computing services is like constructing a building, while bandwidth resource is just like the land for the building. In China, bandwidth price is quite comparable to land price; the quality bandwidth jointly supported by the three major operators in China, in particular, is pretty much like the land in CBD that is incredibly expensive. In this case, cloud computing competition inevitably becomes resource competition, in other words, how many computer rooms, cabinets and bandwidth resources you own determines your expansion scale in this field.

相对于传统托管业务,云计算环境对于数据中心有着更高的要求。云计算一般具有规模效应,因此云计算数据中心的面积较大;云计算的异地备份需求,要求多个机房之间有优质的网络直连保证实时的数据同步;云计算的灵活扩展能力,对应的要求数据中心有极为良好的伸缩性。作为通过网络来访问的云计算服务,对于全国骨干网的具有极高的要求,要保证全国的用户都可以随时随地的访问,能够在全国范围内与运营商互联互通的的网络就变得尤其重要。

Compared to the traditional hosting business, the cloud computing environment imposes higher requirements on data centers. Generally, cloud computing has the scale effect, so cloud computing data centers cover large areas; the remote backup need of cloud computing requests high-quality immediate network connection between computer rooms to ensure real-time data synchronization; the flexible extensibility of cloud computing requests that data centers have extremely good scalability accordingly. Cloud computing services accessed via Internet have fairly high requirements on the backbones in China in order to ensure that they can be accessed by nationwide users anytime and anywhere. In that case, the network interconnecting the Internet service operators in China becomes especially important.

技术能力:在颗粒度的基础上实现自动化管理,你做得到吗?

Technical capability: Can you realize automated management on the basis of particle size?

云服务的技术能力主要是自动化远程管理和监控。云计算的价格战日趋激烈,最终用户对于云计算服务的性价比也愈加严苛,如何在实现高服务标准的前提下实现低运维成本成为当下数据中心云化的核心话题。自动化资源监控和自动化管理成为降低云数据中心运维成本的有效手段。云计算数据中心的自动化管理涉及到整个数据中心的自动化运营,不仅是监测设备的硬件故障,更加重要的是实现从机房风火水电、到服务器和存储、到应用层的端到端的基础设施统一管理,这对数据中心的技术能力提出了新的要求。

The technical capability of cloud computing is mainly automated remote management and monitoring. In the context that the cloud computing price war is becoming increasingly fierce and end users are quite picky about cost performance of cloud computing services, how to maintain a low operation and maintenance cost while implementing high service standards has become a focus topic for data centers planned to set foot in the cloud computing field nowadays. The answer to that topic is automated resources monitoring and automated management. Automated management involves the automated operation of entire cloud computing data centers, not only monitoring hardware failures of equipment, more importantly, also implementing the end-to-end unified management of infrastructures from computer rooms’ wind, fire, water and power to servers and storage and then to application layers. This has imposed new requirements on the technical capability of data centers.

作为在次单项唯一获得90分以上分数的企业,世纪互联的技术创新一直没有停止。先进的自然通风技术和供电技术,加强传统数据中心的能效管理,解决空间不足的问题,并且可以实现供电、散热和计算资源的无缝集成,能够更加高效地利用能源和空间,降低PUE能耗。与此同时,世纪互联合作的云计算厂商都是国际水平享有盛誉的厂商,世纪互联负责基础设施的技术实现,国际云计算厂商负责基础设施之上的技术实现,实现合作伙伴真正意义上的的技术融合。

As the sole enterprise earning 90 plus score for each of the 3 evaluation indicators, 21Vianet has never ceased to make technical innovations. The advanced natural ventilation technology and power supply technology have enhanced the energy efficiency management of traditional data centers and solved the insufficient space problem; in addition, they can realize seamless integration of power supply, radiation and computing resources, and more efficiently utilize energy and space to lower PUE energy consumption. Meanwhile, 21Vianet has internationally prestigious cloud computing partners and has seriously achieved technical fusion with them by technically implementing infrastructure on its own side and the portion above infrastructure on the partner side.

服务能力:云计算运维为王

Service capability: Operation and maintenance rule in the cloud computing era

对于中国的IDC企业来说,服务能力既包括面向最终用户的客户支持服务,也包括面向合作伙伴的运维服务。无论是IaaS,PaaS还是SaaS,最后都是Service,这也昭示着,云计算的本质即是服务。一家公司自建私有云,只要技术好就行,但如果对外提供服务,在技术水平之外,还需要满足不同客户和合作伙伴对于服务的极高要求。用户不在乎云计算背后的技术实现,在乎的是云计算能够带来的业务价值、是否能够和企业内IT实现同等质量或者更高质量的服务、以及云计算厂商是否有成熟的运维流程来满足客户多样化的服务需求。

For the IDC enterprises in China, service capability includes not only customer support services for end users, but also operation and maintenance services for partners. For IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, they are all some kind of service in the end, which indicates that cloud computing is service in nature. A company requires only good technologies to build a private cloud but additionally needs to meet extremely high requirements imposed by its customers and partners on services to build a public cloud. The user doesn’t care about technical implementation behind cloud computing but business value that can be brought by cloud computing, whether services of same or better quality can be realized within organization with the help of internal IT facilities, and whether cloud computing enterprises have mature operation and maintenance procedures to satisfy various service demands from customers.

对于与国际云厂商合作的IDC企业,还需要具备能够提供合规咨询服务、商务服务、双语服务、运维技术服务等综合服务能力。世纪互联在此方面也体现出了灵活且丰富的服务优势:为国际云厂商提供托管服务,合作伙伴无需再整天忙于应付实体硬件、网络、数据中心和凌晨2点突发的紧急情况;根据EDC客户对于机房的特殊需求提供定制化机房服务;强大的本地服务团队可以实现Tier0到Tier2 7*24的客户支持服务和技术支持服务,同时降低离岸外包成本;专业的合规咨询服务消除在中国运营的风险。世纪互联目前向IBM、微软、优利等多家国际云厂商提供端到端的运维服务和全方位的合规指导, 已成功的将这些优质的国际云平台带进中国,并且成为中国唯一一家帮助合作伙伴成功上线云平台的IDC云服务商,也是唯一一家掌握从IaaS到SaaS运维流程和服务的IDC云服务商。

For the IDC enterprises in China who cooperate with international cloud computing enterprises, they are additionally required to able to provide comprehensive services such as compliance consultation service, business service, bilingual service and operation & maintenance technology services. In this regard, 21Vianet has exhibited flexible and abundant service advantages: Providing the hosting service for international cloud enterprises, which relieve partners from busy dealing with all emergencies happening to solid hardware, network or data centers in daytime or at 2 a.m.; providing the computer room customization service according to special needs of EDC customers; a strong local service team can realize the customer and technical support services on a 7*24 basis from Tier 0 to 2 and also reduce offshore outsourcing cost; the professional compliance consultation service eliminates the risks of operating in China. Currently, 21Vianet has successfully provided the end-to-end operation and maintenance services and all-round compliance guide for international cloud enterprises such as IBM, Microsoft and Unisys, and also successfully introduced these high-quality international cloud platforms into China. Moreover, 21Vianet is the sole IDC cloud service provider in China that helps its partners put their cloud platforms online and also the only one that commands the operation and maintenance procedures and services from Iaas to SaaS.

OE as a service:创造新的商业模式

OE as a service: Invent new business model

基于与多个国际云厂商的合作经验,世纪互联将这种云计算国际合作的商业模式定义为OEaaS(Operation Entity as a Service),IDC厂商向云转型并不是只有自己研发云产品这一条路可以走,国际云平台想进入中国也并不是无路可走。

On the basis of the experience of cooperating with international cloud enterprises, 21Vianet has defined such an international cloud computing cooperation business model as OEaaS (Operation Entity as a Service). Independently developing cloud products is not the only way for the IDC enterprises to foray into the cloud computing field; there ain’t no way for international cloud platforms to enter China.

世纪互联最具有特色的服务是合规咨询服务和合规运营经验。当然,这也是在极具中国特色的管制条件下孕育而生。利用专业的合规知识和合规经验对国际云厂商全方位的指导,消除在中国运营的风险;基于和合作伙伴的运营经验及成熟的工作流程,大大缩短国际云平台落地中国的上线准备时间;灵活的商业模式和合作模式,适应不同国际云厂商的多样化需求。虽然世纪互联之后国内也有别的企业模仿合作云产品的业务模式,但是正如那句老话:一直被模仿,却从未被超越,说到上线准备时间最短并且服务最全面,仍然是开创了合作云产品模式的世纪互联。这也让我们对于更多国际云厂商出现在中国市场产生了更大的期待。

The most distinctive services provided by 21Vianet are compliance consultation service and compliance operation experience. Of course, these were born under the control conditions with the Chinese characteristics. To be specific, professional compliance knowledge and experience are used to guide international cloud enterprises in all-round ways in order to eliminate the risks of their operating in China; the preparation time for putting international cloud platforms online in China is significantly reduced thanks to the operation experience with partners and mature working procedures; flexible business models and cooperation modes can adapt to various needs of international cloud enterprises. Although there are some other enterprises to copycat 21Vianet’s cloud product cooperation business model afterwards, the old saying goes, “A copycat is always a copycat, never a surpasser. ” The one which can achieve shortest preparation time for putting cloud platform online and provide most comprehensive services is still 21Vianet, the inventor of the cloud product cooperation business model. This allows us to conceive a higher expectation that many more international cloud enterprises will show up on the Chinese market.
