  • The founding vision for VMware spun out of OS system research group at Stanford University that concluded that these problems were the result of operating systems having gone down the wrong path. The basic model at the time was to acquire some hardware and tightly bundle a million plus line modern operating system on it. Frequently this hw/OS combination was purchased already bundled from the hardware manufacturer. Applications were then added make the platform functional. This tight bundling of the hardware with a complex OS led to the limitations listed here. Many of the serious problems we see in the area of system management, security, and reliability are a result of the limitations of this model. So let’s consider the benefits and drawbacks of virtualization vs. a physical hardware approach. Here is a basic computer – Intel-based hardware, devices such as disks, network cards, software such as an operating system, and applications. Apps talk to the OS, OS talks to hardware, all works OK. Not great. Why not great? Well, you have One OS per machine, pretty much one server app per machine (when did we return to Wang word processors?). For safety, it’s very difficult to put more than one major application on these servers, so it’s very difficult to get high utilitization. You knowingly trade off between wasting hardware and lowering risk. (Read slide) Now, if we move to the next picture, we can see how Virtualization benefits the situation.
  • Key Points: VMware virtual infrastructure provides a solution to this the sever sprawl problem What is probably well understood is that with server consolidation through virtualization, companies can decrease the number of hardware boxes that they deploy and manage. and by doing that, VMware customers are able to decrease their capital investment in hardware by 30-50% on the average. But this benefit is only the very visible and intuitive tip of the iceberg. Our objective for today, is to give you some more flavor, color and understanding about what lies beneath. Server consolidation means three additional benefits: Tremendous savings in operating the datacenter. Fewer boxes means less datacenter real estate, less racks, less power and cooling. Along with consolidating servers, our customers are also able to consolidate storage and networking, which means less storage components, less network cables. fewer boxes means less complexity – less moving parts to manage. And because you have less moving parts to manage, the operational risk, the room for human error is significantly reduced. And finally, virtualization empowers IT to be a lot more responsive to the business. Provisioning virtual machines is a breeze compared to provisioning physical servers, which means that IT can provide service levels to the business that simply were not possible before.
  • Implement Production Server Consolidation and Containment . Contain server sprawl by running software applications in virtual machines on fewer, highly scalable, reliable enterprise-class servers. Customers of VMware Infrastructure have been able to consolidate 10 or more virtual machines per physical processor, thereby drastically increasing server utilization and containing server sprawl. Provide Advanced Business Continuity Protection at Lower Cost . Deliver high availability for critical applications with cost-effective virtualization-based solutions. With VMware Infrastructure, customers can implement a unified disaster recovery (DR) platform that allows many production virtual machines to be recovered in the event of hardware failure without investing in costly one-to-one mapping of production and DR hardware. Streamline Software Test & Development . Consolidate disparate development, testing and staging environments involving multiple operating systems and multi-tier applications on the same hardware. Set up self-service developer portals to increase developer productivity. Secure and Manage Enterprise Desktops . Secure enterprise desktops of geographically dispersed workforce by providing a standard corporate desktop image in a virtual machine. Alternatively, provide standardized enterprise desktop environments hosted in virtual machines accessed through thin clients or PCs. Simplify Infrastructure Provisioning. Reduce the time for provisioning new infrastructure to minutes with sophisticated automation capabilities . Virtual appliances combine simple deployment of software with the benefits of pre-configured devices. Centralize control and responsibility for hardware resources while giving business units and application owners complete control over how resources are utilized Re-host Legacy Applications . Migrate legacy operating systems and software applications to virtual machines running on new hardware for better reliability.
  • One of the clearest benefits ESX Server users see after consolidating servers into virtual machines is a huge improvement in server utilization as measured by average CPU usage. IT administrators generally dedicate a single x86 server per application because of issues like application compatibility problems when running on a single OS image, software vendor requirements or internal billing constraints. The result of that “one application, one server” practice is a datacenter filled to capacity with servers running at 5-15% utilization. With multiple servers consolidated on an ESX Server host, customers are able to reliably operate their servers at 60-80% CPU utilization – a huge improvement in the return on investment in their server hardware. This higher CPU utilization is possible only with the intelligent CPU resource controls made possible by the bare-metal architecture of ESX Server. Normally, running a server at high CPU utilization creates the risk of a critical service being starved for CPU if others experience a load peak. ESX Server eliminates that risk with its CPU resource controls that assign CPU capacity to virtual machines on a “fair share” basis and it also allows an absolute minimum level of CPU capacity to be allocated to critical virtual machines. CPU allocations can also be dynamically adjusted so you can “dial in” more capacity for a virtual machine in anticipation of a period of high load. ESX Server will enforce admission controls to prevent additional virtual machines from being started on a host if minimum resource guarantees for existing virtual machines could not be assured. Running your servers at higher utilization really changes datacenter economics. Now it becomes justifiable to invest in higher end server features like redundant power supplies, hot swappable components, dual storage adapters and teamed NICs when you can divide the cost of those features across multiple servers running in virtual machines rather than across just one application running on a single OS image. That’s important if you’re worried about putting all your eggs in one basket with virtual machine server consolidation – you can now afford more reliable servers and also feel confident in the rock-solid proven reliability of the ESX Server platform.

  • Share a reusable library of hundreds of test environments that can be accessed and run on any computer. Always have the required test environment available in a clean state. Restart tests with a clean state instantly. No longer be constrained by hardware. Spend less time configuring test environments and more time testing. Create multi-machine environments for testing complex applications on a virtual network, such as clustering, VPN and firewalls, and domain servers. Create more realistic tests quickly to improve testing quality.

  • OK, summarizing all that we have gone through: Traditionally there are servers, storage arrays, routers, and lots of cables all carefully and statically hooked together. Applications are carefully provisioned to a singe server with its available attached other resources. Once it is running, it is left alone and the hope is that the load does not change and the systems remain stable. Now with VMware infrastructure that becomes “hardware” VMware infrastructure sits on top of all that hardware and exports it to the virtual appliances as a single pool of 100MHZ of cycles, 100GBytes of memory, etc. It is a simple model and it is one that takes great complexity out of the datacenter while also adding significant utilization optimization and better data continuity through more ubiquitous HA and online backup. VI 3
  • From VMware’s point of view, it’s a thin hypervisor. You, as a customer, may encounter it as server-integrated virtualization, because you’ll buy it with your server. Just imagine our existing ESX Server product, shrink it, and build it into the server like BIOS. That’s the new offering. Architecturally, this product will be superior to any other product in the market. It’ll be simpler to manage more reliable and more secure
  • What we’ve done is we’ve removed a major source of size and complexity from our existing product: the Linux-based Service Console (based on Red Hat Linux)… which was really primarily functioning as a CLI management interface to the box. We achieve a core hypervisor that is just 32MB in size, but preserves all of the user benefit functionality of today’s VI 3 (including VMotion, DRS, HA, VCB, VirtualCenter manageability, etc.).
  • Just a bit more detail about this slide. A thinner, hardware-integrated ESX Server will: simplify manageability by eliminating the Linuxisms (the learning curve, the patching & securing). improve reliability by enabling a diskless, no-moving parts, stateless firmware-based model and improve security by thinning the hypervisor and eliminating the very notion of a “parent partition”. Unlike the competition, we simply won’t have a gargantuan, heavy-weight parent partition that is a source of security vulnerabilities. On the “easy” front, we’re not taking our product and repackaging it. We are really having a hard look at overhauling the user experience – both for new users and for experienced users – to enable the greatest “time to value” and minimize the barriers to adoption. Again, the initial versions will be available from server vendors only, and it will be built into the servers. Check with your server vendor about availability. Over time, we’ll be moving this architecture (of having no Service Console) into our other CD-ROM based products. So, that concludes our discussion about the hypervisor roadmap. It’s an exciting time for us. With the imminence of performance wins that will boost the virtualization-eligible workloads, and continuing work to drive market expansion Through compatibility improvements The server-integrated virtualization project and a never-ending focus on reliability, stability, and trust We’ve got our work cut-out for us on the hypervisor team. Before I close, I am going to flash two slides to complete the picture. These two slides, you can glance at briefly, and if there are questions, we can handle them at the end. The first slide fills out some details about our compatibility directions. The second slide covers some near term releases that further extend our hardware support.
  • Deploying Virtualization becomes incredibly simple. Plug in and power on your server and the hypervisor is already installed. You boot directly into the hypervisor. One required management task: configure the admin password (blank by default) Optionally adjust the network configurations. DHCP by default. Connect VI Client or VirtualCenter to the ESX Server 3i IP address and begin running VMs
  • Common question: I use the Service Console for many management tasks. What do I do now? Answer: ESX Server 3i represents the continuation of a long term trend to move management functions out of the service console and into remote or central tools ESX Server 1 was entirely managed through the service console, command-line, Linux-type commands ESX Server 2 introduced VC 1.0 and the MUI (Management User Interface) ESX Server 3 brought even more functionality into VirtualCenter and broadened and standardized the API/SDK ESX Server 3i depends on the above and launches concurrently with the introduction of the Remote CLI and CIM Remote CLI: Replicates the syntax and commands available in the service console for executing scripts remotely CIM: Common Information Model – agentless, standards based monitoring of the underlying hardware. Health, status, and performance monitoring Follow up question: I run 3 rd party agents in the Service Console. What do I do with ESX Server 3i? VMware is working with it’s partners to migrate their tools to use the VI API/SDK rather than the service console. Running agents in the service console was a decision of convenience for ISVs. We will work with them to migrate their tools over the course of 2008. See “how to guide” for more details During the transition, customers have choice. They can continue to deploy ESX Server for extensibility through the Service Console or deploy ESX Server 3i for the small footprint advantages. The two products are fully compatible
  • Although removing the Service Console changes the management model, there are some significant benefits in being completely indpendent from an operating system. This is in stark contrast to the design principles underlying competitive hypervisors that rely on a parent partition in the form of a general purpose OS. Here are the architectural benefits of not depending on an OS: Unmatched security and reliability Simplified management However, customers do not give up any functionality. This is not “ESX Lite”. It has all the performance and capabilities of ESX Server
  • Notes if delivering to a customer. Scroll down if delivering to a storage OEM!!! All features in general (with exceptions noted below) They are HW independent and support heterogeneous environments. Works across all storage from cheap to expensive, local, NAS, iSCSI, FC Storage Migration This can be used to Avoid planned outages when retiring an array Migrating to a new storage technology – like moving from FC to iSCSI, or introducing a storage virtualizer like SVC or Invista Helps with non-disruptive upgrades and downgrades of ESX/VMFS versions Allows you to free space on a full disk. Allows you to move heavily accessed VMs if the disk has an I/O bottleneck. Initially, source and destination need to be visible to an ESX Server. So, the one use case not supported is migrating from local disk on one host to local disk on another. But we are working on that. In the first release, you can accomplish that use case in two steps by migrating to a NAS in the middle. Thin provisioning VMware has pushed many people to their first SAN. And while it’s provided many benefits, it’s much more expensive. Now customers want to have the benefits of VMware and shared storage but with a lower cost. Thin provisioning helps with that a lot. Buy less up front and grow as needed. Built in accounting system lets you know how much you’ve overprovisioned and how what percentage of physical disk space is really used. This is tied in to the alarm system so you know when you need to buy more disk. Linked clones VMware has pushed many people to their first SAN. And while it’s provided many benefits, it’s much more expensive. Now customers want to have the benefits of VMware and shared storage but with a lower cost. Linked clones helps with that a lot. VDI and Lab Manager are the key use cases here. It is also the key enabler of the SIM technology which will revolutionize patch management. SIM will allow you to patch hundreds of systems in a single install operation! Notes if delivering to storage OEM – don’t talk to them like a customer!!! Storage Migration This is very helpful for heterogeneous environments.  When people want to migrate to your storage, this is key for easing that transition.  It completely removes the planned downtime.  (Note, not as helpful with IBM, HDS, EMC that have heterogeneous migration products – albeit expensive ones) We are happy to work with you to offload this functionality to the array For current VM-aware storage partners, this means continuing that effort For those we have not yet opened up to on VM-aware storage, you can mention that features like xcopy would allow us to offload to them.  If they jump on that and ask for details of how to do the xcopy and when we could leverage it, make note of this for Parag and I since they are people we will have to considering speeding up inclusion in VM-aware storage Thin provisioning If they don’t have thin provisioning, this is non-competitive from a future perspective.  It does lower the storage VMware consumes, but we drive so much storage, this is still a net win for them. If they do have thin provisioning, offer them a follow-up meeting with me/Ray about how we square away their thin provisioning and ours.  They may work together well if we are thoughtful about this. Linked clones This reduces the amount of storage we need, but given that the use case is test/dev and VDI, it is still pushing net new storage to the arrays (from internal disk).  This helps them. Ultimately, we would like to work off the array snapshots and not the disklib snapshots.  But, this is a vm-aware storage concept that you should not go too deep into if they’re not already involved.  However, do let them know that we do want to leverage their snaps better.
  • At VMware, we say that “virtual is better than physical” very frequently, and our advanced development work on providing continuous availability for VMs – to enable VMs to keep executing, completely uninterrupted by unexpected hardware failures - is one of the great examples of why this is true. We are developing a technology called Record/Replay (first demoed at VMworld 2006 and currently shipping in Workstation 6.0). The record replay technology can be used to create virtual machine “pairs” that run in lock step - essentially mirroring the execution state of a VM. To the external world they appear as one instance (one IP address, one application) – but they are fully redundant instances. In the event of an unexpected hardware failure that causes the active, primary VM to fail – a secondary, formerly passive VM immediately picks up where the primary left off, and continues to run, uninterrupted, and without any loss of network connections or transactions. This technology will also work across any application & any OS without modifications, without scripting, and provides a much more cost-effective way of running mission critical workloads than fault-tolerant hardware dedicated entirely to individual applications. We believe this technology, and all of the other business continuity benefits of virtualization will drive more and more mission critical workloads into virtual machines because they can enable HIGHER levels of availability, at a fraction of the cost & complexity of physical solutions. Limitations of FT in the initial release: dependent on shared storage, Uniprocessor VMs only, mirroring of VMs limited to 2-nodes. Additional overhead also associated with this type of solution. Overall performance impact still TBD, but you can expect more CPU & memory resources will be required to run the 2 nd VM, and applications may experience small amounts of added latency. In spite of initial limitations, longer term trends are in our favor: FT will take advantage of hardware assisted virtualization in CPUs, more and more CPU cores becoming available to offload overhead, and high-speed network improvements like 10gigE to reduce latencies…
  • The VDM Connection Server is installed on a Windows 2003 server (physical or virtual) in the data center. This is the primary component of VMware VDM. [Click] The VDM Agent is installed in each virtual desktop in the environment. [Click] The VDM Client is installed on Windows clients. Users run the VDM Client to connect to the VDM Connection Server. For non-Windows clients, such as MAC, Linux or proprietary thin-client operating systems, the user can access VDM by connecting to the VDM Connection Server in an Internet browser. An optional configuration is to install the VDM server in Security Server mode. A VDM Security Server has the ‘front-end’ functionality of the VDM Connection Server, such as web services and SSL tunneling. This deployment configuration is intended for remote access over insecure networks (e.g. Internet). In this scenario the ‘back-end’ functionality of the Connection Server and the virtual desktops are still deployed in the internal ‘green zone’ of the network and the VDM Security Server is installed within a DMZ. The VDM clients communicate with the internal system through the Security Server.
  • Santorini will provide end to end automation of DR – leveraging the award winning platform features we have today. Santorini is like VMware HA. With HA, when a server blows up, the VMs are restarted quickly on another server. With Santorini, if a site blows up, VMs are quickly restarted on another site Santorini will be an add in module available for VC 2.1 or greater There are 4 workflows. Here is some of the detail. If you or a customer need more than this, a full blown availability or DR roadmap can be given. Setup Determine which VMs are replicated Allow the customer to map VC constructs between source and destination sites (note: two sites can protect each other and therefore both be both source and destination sites) VM hierarchies (replicated VMs should be placed in the right place at the destination VC) Resource pools (replicated VMs should be placed in the right resource pools at the destination VC) Port groups (replicated VMs should be placed in the right port groups at the destination VC) Create a startup order Predetermine the VM startup order Create callout and breakpoints so that the right controls are in place Failover When the customer declares a disaster, they hit the big red button and everything plays out as it was setup. After the recovery there is an audit trail which can tell customers how they DR event went. Failback Not a lot of automation here, we allow for a guided failback more than a fully automated failback Test Runs just like the failover sequence so it’s as as true to life as possible. But we need to make a “test bubble” first Isolate storage (don’t mess up the replicas) Isolate the network (don’t pollute the production network with test traffic)
  • It’s important not to oversell the product. We are selling active/passive DR for applications. The sites may be active/active (each site protecting the other), but each application needs to be powered on at the remote site if the first site is destroyed. The idea is to be like VMware HA but for site failure. The 90% of apps that can handle active/passive protection are covered by Santorini – completely independent of server, storage, OS and application. This is very compelling. But apps that can’t lose a byte of data or have a second of downtime will require some application specific load balanced cluster solution that will be both complex and expensive. VMware will take care of EVERYTHING ELSE.
  • This slide simply shows a disaster happening and VMs started out in an automated order. Again, the workflows are Setup Failover Failback Test Each of these workflows requires interaction with the replication system. In 1.0, we are tied to array replication. We will have integration scripts that communicate with some (hopefully all) of the popularly deployed arrays. For setup, we will query the storage to see what LUNs are replicated so that the customer knows exactly which VMs can be started up at the remote side. For failover, we promote the replica LUNs at the remote side so that they can be imported to ESX, have their VMFS’s resignatured and their VMs registered For test, we take snapshots before the VM startup sequence and delete the snap shot afterwards. This is great for enterprise customers, but for SMB and some commercial accounts, host based replication is needed due to cost concerns. In DR 1.5, (again, be REALY CAREFUL with this – keep away from storage vendors) we will have an integrated host based replication system (details in the VMFS slides). This replication system will have more host overhead and will have some impact on production VM performance, but it will provide end to end DR for VMs, including the replication. It will also be storage independent and will support heterogeneous deployments. It will also allow per VM replication instead of all or nothing replication of all VMs on a given LUN. This will really round out the offering and make it very broadly applicable in the market.
