  1. VMware Overview VMware Server Virtualization Seminar Series Noah Johnson Sr. Systems Engineer VMware Inc

  2. VMware By the Numbers • Founded • 1998 • 2006 Revenue • $709 M • Number of Employees • 2,500+ • Number of VMware Infrastructure Customers • 20,000+ • Number of Users • 4+ million • Number of Channel Partners • 3,000+ • Number of VMware Certified Professionals • 10,000+

  3. Who Uses VMware? 100% of the Fortune 100

  4. Virtualization Technology Overview The Challenge • Old Model:Traditional x86 Architecture • Single OS image per machine • Software and hardware tightly coupled • Multiple applications often conflict • Underutilized resources  Old model is challenging!

  5. State of Infrastructure Today – Physical Power & Cooling Server Sprawl • 38 m physical servers by 2010 - 700% increase in 15 years • $140 bn in excess server capacity - a 3-year supply • 50c for every $1 spent on servers • $29 bn in power and cooling industry wide Operating Cost Space Crunch • $8 in maintenance for every $1 spent on new infrastructure • 20-30 : 1 server-to-admin ratio • $1,000 /sqft • $2,400 / server • $40,000 / rack Source: IDC

  6. With Virtualization What is Virtualization? Without Virtualization Application Operating System Hardware • VMware provides hardware virtualization that presents a complete x86 platform to the virtual machine • Allows multiple applications to run in isolation within virtual machines on the same physical machine • Virtualization provides direct access to the hardware resources to give you much greater performance than software emulation

  7. After VMware Virtualization Increases Hardware Utilization Before VMware Virtualization enables consolidation of workloads from underutilized servers onto a single server to safely achieve higher utilization

  8. Key Properties of Virtual Machines • Partitioning • Run multiple operating systems on one physical machine • Divide system resources between virtual machines

  9. Key Properties of Virtual Machines • Partitioning • Run multiple operating systems on one physical machine • Divide system resources between virtual machines • Isolation • Fault and security isolation at the hardware level • Advanced resource controls preserve performance

  10. Key Properties of Virtual Machines • Partitioning • Run multiple operating systems on one physical machine • Divide system resources between virtual machines • Isolation • Fault and security isolation at the hardware level • Advanced resource controls preserve performance • Encapsulation • Entire state of the virtual machine can be saved to files • Move and copy virtual machines as easily as moving and copying files

  11. Key Properties of Virtual Machines • Partitioning • Run multiple operating systems on one physical machine • Divide system resources between virtual machines • Isolation • Fault and security isolation at the hardware level • Advanced resource controls preserve performance • Encapsulation • Entire state of the virtual machine can be saved to files • Move and copy virtual machines as easily as moving and copying files • Hardware-Independence • Provision or migrate any virtual machine to any similar or different physical server

  12. State of Infrastructure with Virtualization BEFORE VMware AFTER VMware SAVINGS * Note: Savings include estimated cost of VMware licenses, Support and Subscription

  13. The Enterprise PC Challenge IT: Are We Having Fun Yet?

  14. Virtual Machines ESX Server • Deploy multiple virtual machines on a single physical server • Market leading: ESX Server • Performance • Stability • Scalability • Cross-platform support Physical Server

  15. Non-Disruptive Capacity on Demand

  16. Instant Provisioning in a Virtualized Environment Physical • Provisioning time reduced to minutes, not days to weeks! Test Apps Configure hardware Install OS Configure OS & Tools Assign IP Addr Configure Network 20-40 hrs of work 4-6 week lead time <1 hr of work 1-2 days lead time Deploy from Template Power on VM Virtual

  17. Power on server and boot into hypervisor Configure Admin Password (optional) Modify network configuration Connect VI Client to IP Address Or manage with VirtualCenter 3i From server boot to running VMs in Minutes    

  18. VMware VMotion 73% of VMware customers have implemented VMotion in production • Live migration of virtual machines • Zero downtime

  19. VMware DRS 67% of VMware customers use DRS in production Business Demand • Dynamic and intelligent allocation of hardware resources • Ensure optimal alignment between business and IT Resource Pool

  20. Ensure High availability with VMware HA • VMware HA automatically restarts virtual machines when a physical server fails X Resource Pool

  21. Distributed Power Management (coming soon) NEW! Minimize power consumption while guaranteeing service levels • Consolidates workloads onto fewer servers when the cluster needs fewer resources • Places unneeded servers in standby mode • Brings servers back online as workload needs increase Business Demand Power Off Resource Pool

  22. Storage VMotion NEW! Storage VMotion minimizes planned downtime for storage • Storage independent live migration of virtual machine disks • Zero downtime to virtual machines • LUN independent • Supported for Fibre channel SANs

  23. VMware Update Manager NEW! • Eliminates manual tracking of patch levels of ESX Server hosts and virtual machines • Automates enforcement of patch standards • Reduces risk through snapshots and offline virtual machine patching OFFLINE Update Manager * Note: RHEL guests can only be scanned, not remediated

  24. Non-disruptive ESX Server Patching with Update Manager and DRS • Update Manager patches entire DRS clusters • Each host in the cluster enters DRS maintenance mode, one at a time • VMs are migrated off, host is patched & rebooted if required • VMs are migrated back on • Next host is selected Update Manager VMotion VMotion

  25. Protect data with VMware consolidated backup Centralized file level backup enables easy & reliable data protection • What is it? • Centralized agentless backup for virtual machines • Move backup out of the virtual machine • Eliminate backup traffic on the local area network • Pre-integrated with major 3rd-party backup products CENTRALIZEDDATA MOVER BACKUPPROXY BACKUP DISK

  26. ESX Server 3i NEW! Next generation, thin hypervisor integrated in server systems • Integrated in server systems • Easiest way to deploy and manage virtualization • Hardware is certified and ready-to-run • Intuitive start up experience that dramatically reduces deployment time • Optimized for remote management • Thin architecture • Unparalleled security and reliability • Compact 32MB footprint • Only OS-independent design focused on virtualization

  27. The Virtual Infrastructure Stack Today Œ • Virtual Center Hypervisor  • UpdateManager • Storage VMotion • VMotion • DRS • DPM • HA • VCB Distributed Virtualization  Management & Automation Infrastructure Optimization Business Continuity Desktop Management SW Lifecycle Resource Mgt Security Availability Mobility • ESX Server • VMFS • Virtual SMP 17

  28. 1 Virtual Machine and Server Management 2 7 Programmatic Interfaces Provisioning 6 3 Migration Security and Access Control 5 4 Resource Management System Monitoring VirtualCenter Capabilities Centralized Management What's new

  29. Guided Consolidation NEW! DISCOVER • Automatically discovers physical servers* • Analyzes utilization and usage patterns* • Converts physical servers to VMs placed intelligently based on user response ANALYZE CONVERT * Recommended for smaller environments

  30. Introducing VMware Site Recovery Manager Site Recovery Manager leverages VMware Infrastructure to transform disaster recovery • Simplifies and automates disaster recovery workflows: • Setup, testing, failover, failback • Provides central management of recovery plans from VirtualCenter • Turns manual recovery processes into automated recovery plans • Simplifies integration with 3rd-party storage replication

  31. Challenges of Traditional DR: Recovery Process DR Challenges Today Prod DR “Boot & Pray” cd, tape or ghost image WAN Application Application OS OS x86 x86 OS files OS files local storage local storage Repl process: OS – Images App Data-Replication SW: SAN-SAN, OS based Storage Storage • Complex to physically recover OS, applications & data • Separate processes for system and application data • OS & applications have dependencies on hardware configuration • Tier 2 & 3 applications left unprotected, adding to Tier 1 RTO risk Just Tier 1! Slow and Unreliable Process

  32. Site Failure Array-Based Replication (SRDF, SnapMirror, etc.) Replication with VMware: Array-Based Replication DR SITE PRIMARY WAN or Dark Fiber Target VMFS Source VMFS SLA’s = High
