  • In the past decade,virtualization has revolutionized the way that IT operates. While virtualization itself has enabled large scale server consolidation, the value of a virtualized infrastructure goes far beyond simple virtualization. Virtual infrastructure provides a relatively easy means for rapidly reconfiguring network and storage configurations within a given hypervisor. Virtualization administrators are able to create new networks, add virtual disks to servers, provision new operating systems, and much more without having to plug in cables, open a server, or even leave their desks.Cisco’s Unified Compute System (UCS) had the advantage of being the first server platform to be engineered post-virtualization. We took the concepts that made virtualization so advantageous, and applied them to the physical world. Things like Unified Fabric, template based provisioning, painless hardware migration, programmatic administration, and a single point for complete infrastructure management make managing UCS similar in ease to managing virtual servers.

  • Speaker notesModes of VM-FEX:Standard Mode:In the standard the mode each VM is associated one to one with a PCIe device presented by the VIC. All VM traffic is sent to the upstream Fabric Interconnect for switchingIn our tests performance improvement over industry standard NICs was between 12%-15%From a functionality perspective – VM-FEX presents itself as a distributed network solution to the hypervisor and integrates with it seamlessly – standard functionality such as vMotion are all supported while enjoying the performance improvement benefitsHigh performance Mode:In the high performance mode the hypervisor is completely bypassed and VM I/O is directly placed on the VIC’s descriptors – this is possible since the VIC’s descriptors are a perfect match to the descriptors of the emulated NIC in the VM. The performance benefit comes primarily from the fact that one extra memory copy is eliminated –Typically buffers are copied from the VM’s memory to the hypervisor and finally placed on the physcialNICs descriptorsIn VMDirectPath mode – the buffers are placed directly to the VIC’s descriptors thereby eliminating the memory copy in the hypervisor layerIn our testing the I/O performance improvements are close to 30% and CPU performance improvements are upto 50% for I/O bound applications.Again from a functionality perspective this mode appears as a first class distributed virtual switch to the hypervisor and with ESX 4.1 U1 VMware is enabling vMotion with VMDirectPath – thereby enabling dynamic workload management. standard the mode each VM is associated one to one with a PCIe device presented by the VIC. All VM traffic is sent to the upstream Fabric Interconnect for switchingIn our tests performance improvement over industry standard NICs was between 12%-15%From a functionality perspective – VM-FEX presents itself as a distributed network solution to the hypervisor and integrates with it seamlessly – standard functionality such as vMotion are all supported while enjoying the performance improvement benefits
  • Cisco UCS Manager provides integrated, embedded management for entire hardware stack, while VMware vCenter manages the virtual environment and virtualization pool. The points at which these managers are integrated adds value by speeding infrastructure and VM deployment, simplifying management while reducing the chance of error, and better matching energy use to actual workload requirements.First of all, no other solution treats virtual links to virtual machines as if they were physical links. This increases visibility into VM networks, and gives administrators greater control. Once a virtual link is created, its profile moves along with virtual machines, with security and QoS settings moving along with vMotion. No longer do you have to have your Ethernet network wide open in order to make sure that your VMs have sufficient access to resources as they move throughout a virtualization cluster.You create port profiles in Cisco UCS Manager to describe the characteristics of virtual machine connectivity. Port profiles are visible as port groups in vCenter, automating the creation of virtual machines that are supported by the virtualization-aware UCS platform. Service profiles and templates provide policy-based provisioning at the hardware level, facilitating easy, accurate, and consistent provisioning of physical server resources for one or dozens of VMware instances. This approach eliminates a class of errors that can lead to downtime, increasing availability and reducing costs by allowing virtualization pools to expand efficiently and dynamically. Cisco UCS Manager is standards-based, so it integrates with VMware features such as Dynamic Power Management. When workloads are light, DPM consolidates running VMs onto a smaller number of servers and powers off servers to save on energy costs.
  • The FlexPod is not a fix configuration. It provides an excellent starting point as shared infrastructure for organizations that want to run mixed workloads. The starting point is the MS Productivity Applications, but the FlexPod architecture allows different resources to be scaled while maintaining the same design and implementations.The initial sizing guide covers the MS Applications (VDI Windows 7, MS Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, MS SQL 2008) and over time will cover many different applications.
  • We offer best-of-breed, proven Cisco and EMC products and services to fit your unique business and IT need. Our products and services enable you to more easily plan, deploy and manage your infrastructure and satisfy every step of your journey to the cloud. Presenter add comments about your own value-add services.
  • Before we dive into the specific VSPEX solutions we are launching today – I would like to take a few mins and describe what a VSPEX solution is … As the title suggests – VSPEX is a EMC “proven” Data Center reference design for shared virtual infrastructure . There are two key points that I would like to stress here – We are backing the VSPEX solution with our EMC “Proven” brand that has stood as well over the past 5+ years in large enterprise. We are bringing the same rigorous engineering discipline and methodology into the channel with VSPEX solutions. It’s a reference design that guarantees interoperability & integration across – your choice of Server Compute x Networking and Hypervisor on an EMC storage portfolio

Physical ASA offers bare metal server and virtual machine servicesScale up across ASA platforms to address initial requirementsScale out with ASA clustering providing more capacity for increased demandScale across with future ASA multi-site clustering (show multi-site across data centers)Trusted enclaves will evolve with Cisco technology stackThis is foundational work, load balancing and web application firewall services will be addressed in future phases
  • This should lead from the previous screen in that UCS is the infrastructure for Cloud and Cloupia is the management solution best suited for that infrastructure. The bullet points on this slide were covered in earlier presentations, so the talking point is around the sentence at the bottom of this slide. Cisco can now offer not only the complete hardware stack, but a comprehensive management solution for all of the components, making us a one-stop shop for the complete solution to start companies on their cloud journey.
