journey begins with microsoft exchange
Journey Begins with Microsoft Exchange
  • Pretend like you’re doing it physically… Just do it virtually
    • Architect for the application, not for the virtualization solution
  • Refer to support policies, recommendations and Best Practice documents
  • Deploy VMs with similar roles on separate hosts
    • MBX VMs in same DAG should not co-locate
    • Spread your CAS around
    • Deploy with Fixed Disk VHD
    • Scale up and scale out

  • Storage Infrastructure Requirements
    • Efficiency
    • Simplicity
  • Flexible
    • Supports file, block & object
  • Meets Application Demands
    • Automatic storage tiering
  • Out-of-the-box integration
    • Hyper-V, System Center, Data Protection

Instead, only allocate space when data is created written, andpay as you grow

People overbuyunused capacity all the time

virtualized exchange design guide
Solution Components:

Cisco UCS B200 Servers hosting 32,000 Exchange 2010 mailboxes

Replication provided by native Exchange Database Availability Groups

Virtualization of all Exchange roles using Microsoft Hyper-V

simplified management for windows
Simplified Management for Windows
  • Free tool to provision EMC storage for Windows Servers
  • Windows MMC based
  • Agent less architecture
  • Application aware
  • Fibre Channel, iSCSI & CIFS support
storage integrator use cases
Storage Integrator Use Cases

Where are these LUNs coming from?

  • Provides insight into mapping of application and physical disk resources to storage arrays
  • Bridges the complexity gap between Server/Application admin to storage admin
  • Eliminates costly mistakes – automatic incorporation of application best practices for storage provisioning

Journey to the Hyper-V Private CloudFull Speed Ahead
  • Virtualize the Datacenter
    • Identify what isn’t a fit opposed to the other way around
    • Design goal: end users don’t know if it is physical or virtual
  • Several Benefits
    • Reduced power and cooling
    • Easier management
    • Simplify High Availability & Disaster Recovery for the server and applications

journey continues with microsoft sql server sharepoint
Journey Continues with Microsoft SQL Server & Sharepoint
  • Follow Microsoft Best Practices for SQL Server & SharePoint
  • Use perfmon to identify intensive SQL workloads & deploy appropriately
  • Design back-end to support workload (IOPS)
  • Create separate dedicated networks for public traffic, Hyper-V management operations and storage connectivity
  • Continue to place database and log files on separate spindles for performance and recovery purposes

Virtualized SQL Server Test Results
  • Tested SQL Server 2008 on Fibre Channel SAN to measure performance
  • Similar performance between physical and virtual with Hyper-V Pass-through
  • Using Flash drives to extend cache (FAST Cache), significant performance gains were realized

emc provisioning integration
EMC Provisioning Integration
  • Created for Opalis version 6.3
  • EMC Provisioning cmdlets have been formulated as Opalis objects which can be employed in Opalis workflows
  • PowerShell scripts have been incorporated to handle login credential inputs
  • Leverage SMI-S and System Center to deliver a better Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution
  • Extend provisioning capabilities to Self Service Portal (SSP)
summary
Summary
  • The journey to implementing a cloud solution will be unique for each environment, no two scenarios are the same
  • Hyper-V virtualization is the key to realizing the benefits of a private cloud
  • Implement a customizable, dynamic virtualized environment that is both scalable and highly available
  • A successful cloud solution leverages technologies from many vendors – no single solution
  • Enjoy the ride, these are exciting times
