Enterprise Grade Open Source Virtualization

  1. 1. Winner: Open Source Initiative of the Year Enterprise Grade Open Source Virtualization Infrastructure Technology Product of the Year
  2. 2. What’s All the Fuss About? XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 2
  3. 3. Problem: Success of Scale-out “OS+app per server” provisioning leads to server sprawl Server utilization rates <10% Expensive to maintain, house, power, and cool Slow to provision, inflexible to change or scale Poor resilience to failures XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 3
  4. 4. Xen Delivers Virtualization Savings Consolidation: fewer servers slashes CapEx and OpEx “Instant on” provisioning: any app on any server, any time Higher utilization: make the most of existing investments Robustness to failures and “auto-restart” of VMs on failure XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 4
  5. 5. Result: Lower CapEx and OpEx “Xen and XenOptimizer from XenSource allow us to “Xen and XenOptimizer from XenSource allow us to consolidate servers and truly enable utility computing.” consolidate servers and truly enable utility computing.” CTO, F50 Financial Services CTO, F50 Financial Services SAVINGS BY AREA Deployment $52M Operators $52M Power/Cooling $11M H/W & S/W $21M Servers Total $136M $136 M Total Savings XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 5
  6. 6. The Analysts’ Take By 2009, there will be three competitive hypervisor architectures: VMware ESX Server, Xen and Microsoft's hypervisor (0.8 probability). XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 6
  7. 7. What’s The Big Deal with Xen? • Superb performance • Open Sourced • Affordable • Backed by all major IT vendors • Paravirtualization Inflection point #1: Xen acknowledged as best pioneers paravirtualization ? XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 7
  8. 8. Xen Unlocks Platform Innovation Delivers Platform Security Delivers Platform Security • Supports “virtual” TPM 1.1 & 1.2 • Supports “virtual” TPM 1.1 & 1.2 for secure boot & OS services for secure boot & OS services • Integrated IDS & security • Integrated IDS & security features features Hardware Virtualization Support Hardware Virtualization Support • Accelerates virtualization • Accelerates virtualization • Virtualization “on the bare metal” • Virtualization “on the bare metal” • XenSource delivers “bare metal I/O” • XenSource delivers “bare metal I/O” Multi-core Processors & Multi-core Processors & Hyper-threading Hyper-threading Inflection point #2: Xen • Load balances parallel execution units • Load balances parallel execution units delivers benefits of running up to 64-way SMP workloads running up to 64-way SMP workloads hardware virtualization • Hides complexity from guests • Hides complexity from guests XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 8

XenSource’s Distro Partners Tightly Integrated Virtualization (RHEL 5) Tightly Integrated Virtualization (RHEL 5) "We're taking [Xen] virtualization and integrating We're taking [Xen] virtualization and integrating it in the Linux platform. Customers want … to it in the Linux platform. Customers want … to seamlessly integrate it into their environment.” seamlessly integrate it into their environment.

  12. 12. But What About Windows? Many customers want multi-OS virtualization • Need Windows, legacy Linux, BSD, Solaris… • Ease of use is paramount (install, manage, P2V) • Must integrate with other infrastructure systems eg: storage virtualization, file systems “We want to Premier support agreements running distributions on “Customers with run the old application and back level Windows within XenEnterprisenew virtual hardware. Just like the mainframe.” the … can look to Microsoft for best effort technical - Lehman IT support” Bill Hilf, GM Platform Strategy, Microsoft XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 12
  13. 13. Summary: Solution Benefits Maximize utilization of servers to cut CapEx and OpEx Relocate Relocate Dynamically provision & relocate VMs for no-downtime maintenance, instant-on provisioning & Optimize Optimize robustness to faults eg: fan failure Dynamically re-balance workload to guarantee application SLAs XenSource CONFIDENTIAL 13
