Transcript

  • 1. Virtualization webtuesday Toni Birrer / local.ch (with VMware) (…and Star Wars)
  • 2. http://del.icio.us/turbodexter/vmware
  • 3. Let‘s make this clear: This is NOT a VMware sales show! Some alternatives:
    • Paralells
    • KVM
    • XEN
    • Virtual PC
    (okay, maybe not)
    • Windows Server 2008
    (soon)
  • 4. Virtualiwhat? Look, PowerPoint 2007 can do reflections!
  • 5. Without Virtualization Hardware Operating System Applications Applications Applications Applications Hardware Operating System Applications Applications Applications Applications Windows Server A Linux Server B
  • 6. With Virtualization (Player, Workstation, Fusion, Server) Virtual Hardware Operating System Applications Applications Applications Applications Windows Server B Linux Server C Virtual Hardware Operating System Applications Applications Applications Applications Physical Hardware Operating System Hypervisor Windows Server A
  • 7. Products Overview VMware Player VMware Workstation VMware Server VMware ESX3 VMware Fusion (Beta) VMware Converter VMware Converter Enterprise VMware ACE2 VMware Virtual Center Testing, Demo, Development, … Server Hosting Desktops means it is free VMware VDI Check out: http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/
  • 8. Snapshots A snapshot is to your computer…. … what a save game is to your computer game.
  • 9. Clones Never again install an OS again, just copy it
  • 10. Linked Clones Like clones, but without the big disk space usage
  • 11. Teams Control multiple virtual machines as one
  • 12. Java Run eclipse on _______ and debug your App on _________ Linux Windows Jawa Debugger Virtual Run eclipse on _______ and debug your App on _________ Windows Linux Run eclipse on _______ and debug your App on _________ Solaris BSD Run Visual Studio on _______ and your App on _________ WinXP Vista
  • 13. Record/Replay
    • Record all instructions on a VM for some time
    • Replay as often as you want
    • Attach a debugger during a replay
    • Get tracing results during a replay
    • Go live at any time during a replay
    It’s mind-bending! (and still Alpha Release Quality)

  • 15. With Virtualization on ESX3 Virtual Hardware Operating System Applications Applications Applications Applications Windows Server B Linux Server C Virtual Hardware Operating System Applications Applications Applications Applications Physical Hardware Hypervisor VMware Server
  • 16. Key Differences to VMware Server
    • Faster, less overhead
    • Run more VM’s on a single host machine
    • Supports up to 64 GB of RAM per VM
    • Supports up to 4 CPU’s per VM
    • Virtual Switches
    • Has High Availability options
    • And lots more…
  • 17. VI3 – Virtual Infrastructure Virtual Center SAN (Storage Area Network)
  • 18. Is VI3 a Single Point of Failure? Let‘s first look at some more features...
  • 19. Virtual Networking
    • Each NIC of your ESX Server is a 56 Port Switch
    • Supports for VLAN ID’s
    • Supports for Multipathing
    • Supports for Bandwith Shaping
    Note:
    • Only use Gigabit Ethernet NIC’s
    • Buy Servers with fast expansion slots
    • Buy your servers with lots of NICS
    • Use 2 or 4 GbE port NICS to save space
    • One NIC port is used for the console
    • One NIC port is used SAN access (iSCSI/fibre)
  • 20. High Availabilty (HA) Virtual Center SAN
  • 21. VMotion Virtual Center NAS
  • 22. Dynamic Resource Scheduling (DRS) Virtual Center SAN
  • 23. Consolidated Backup / ESX Ranger Virtual Center SAN
  • 24. Is VI3 a Single Point of Failure?
    • Make sure your SAN is fail-safe
    • Use at least two ESX Nodes
    • Consider using Network Multipathing
    • Use VMware HA
    • Use VMware VMotion
    • Use VMware DRS
    • Use Consolidated Backup
    It might, but it can be avoided:
  • 25. Let’s save some Energy…
  • 26. 20 Virtual Servers at local.ch
    • Use less power
    • Use less space
    • Produce less heat
    • Use less cables and switches
    • Spend less time in the server room
    VI3 Setup Traditional
  • 27. Think dense:
    • A FAST SAN of your choice
    • A Blade Center of your choice
    • 1 x cheap blade for Virtual Center
    • 9 blades /w 2 x QuadCore + 16 GB Memory
    • Run LOTS of virtual servers
    • Almost no cables
    • Uses only 10 Rack Units
    • HA and DRS at it’s best
    • High initial investment, but low
    • running costs
    (equals a cluster with 72 CPU cores and 144 GB Memory)
  • 28. Bottom-line: Virtualization can save you time/money/resources/hassle
  • 29. Thanks!
