  • 4. About VMware<br />AT A GLANCE<br />Founded: 1998<br />URL: www.vmware.com<br />Headquarters: 3401 Hillview Ave.<br /> Palo Alto, CA 94304<br />Employees: More than 7,100<br />2009 Revenue: $2 billion, 5th largest<br /> infrastructure software<br /> company<br />Customers: More than 170,000<br /> • 100% of the Fortune 100<br /> • 93% of the Fortune 500<br /> • 96% of the Fortune 1000<br /> • 100% of the Fortune Global 100<br /> • 96% of the Fortune Global 500<br />Partners: 25,000<br />Professionals: Certified 48,000<br />Product Lines: VMware vSphere™<br /> VMware View™<br /> VMware vCenter™<br /> VMware vCloud™<br />SpringSourceby VMware<br />
  • 5. What is vSphere 4?<br />“VMware vSphere manages large collections of infrastructure (such as CPUs, storage, and networking) as a seamless and dynamic operating environment, and also manages the complexity of a datacenter.”<br /> - VMware<br />Translation: vSphere 4 lets you create and manage a virtualized IT infrastructure to simplify and automate the administration of the physical server and network infrastructure while allowing you to maximize the hardware potential of that infrastructure.<br />
  • 6. ESX/ESXi 4.0<br />The Core component of vSphere 4<br />Type 1 Hypervisors<br />ESX installs with a Service Console for local administration<br />Service Console is a stripped down Linux OS<br />ESXi administration is all done through a remote management interface<br />Remote Management Interfaces:<br />vSphere 4 Client Interface<br />vSphere 4 Web Interface (not enabled by default on ESX)<br />vShpere 4 Command-Line Interface<br />vCenter Server 4<br />
  • 7. ESX 4.0 Installation<br /><ul><li>Non-VMFS formatted LUNs appear as unpartitioned
  • 8. Unplug SAN if LUNs not needed during ESX Install</li></li></ul><li>vSphere 4 Client Interface<br />
  • 9. Enterprise Converter Usage<br /><ul><li>vCenter Server 4.01 Plug-in enables Converter
  • 10. Enterprise Converter is an optional component during vCenter Server installation</li></li></ul><li>VMware Converter Standalone<br /><ul><li>vCenter Converter Standalone can be installed on any computer
  • 11. Client / Server architecture allows client and server to be on different computers</li></li></ul><li>Centralized Management Features<br />vCenter Server 4.0<br />Host Profiles<br />Centralized Licensing<br />vSphere Management Assistant<br />vCenter Update Manager<br />vSphere Host Update Utility<br />
  • 12. vCenter Server 4<br />
  • 13. Host Profiles<br />Host Profiles Screen or Hosts and Cluster Screen<br />
  • 14. Centralized Licensing<br />
  • 15. vSphere Management Assistant<br />The VMware vSphere Management Assistant (vMA) is a prepackaged Linux virtual machine in which administrators can deploy scripts and select third-party agents to manage ESX and ESXi systems. Software included in vMA includes vSphere CLI, an authentication component that supports non-interactive login, and a log collection component.<br />
  • 16. <ul><li>Integrated into Virtual Center for hosts and VMs
  • 17. Attach a baseline to scan or remediate (patch) host or VM
  • 18. Scans and patching can be run immediately or can be scheduled</li></ul>vCenter Update Manager<br />
  • 19. vSphere Host Update Utility<br />
  • 20. Available Application Services<br />vMotion<br />Storage vMotion<br />VMware HA<br />VMware DRS<br />VMware FT<br />vSheild Zones<br />VM Hot Add Support<br />VMDirectPath for Virtual Machines<br />
  • 21. vMotion<br />1<br />Step One:<br />1<br />VM1-1<br /><ul><li>Users currently accessing VM1-1 on ESX1
  • 22. Initiate migration of VM1-1 from ESX1 to ESX2 while VM1-1 is up and running</li></ul>ESX Server 1<br />ESX Server 1<br />2<br />3<br />3<br />2<br />Memory<br />VM Motion Network<br />CorpNet Network<br />Remaining Memory<br />VM state – Registers, etc<br />Step Two:<br />4<br /><ul><li>Pre-copy memory from ESX1 to ESX2
  • 23. Log ongoing memory changes
  • 24. Copy changed memory, Log new changes
  • 25. Repeat copying changed memory until remaining changes are small enough to copy during the quiesce</li></ul>4<br />ESX Server 2<br />Virtual Disk and Config files<br />Step Three:<br />4<br />VM1-1<br /><ul><li>Quiesce virtual machine on ESX1
  • 26. Copy remaining memory to ESX2
  • 27. Copy VM State information (registers, etc)</li></ul>Shared Storage<br />Step Four:<br /><ul><li>Start VM1-1 on ESX2
  • 28. Users now access VM1-1 on ESX2</li></ul>Step Five:<br /><ul><li>Delete VM1-1 from ESX1 after migration is successful</li></li></ul><li>Built-in to the Migrate Wizard<br />VMotion or Storage VMotion, not both at once<br />Can cold migrate both at once<br />Can reprovision (thin/thick) the disk while migrating (hot/cold)<br />StoragevMotion<br />

  • 32. vShield Zones<br />
  • 33. VM Hot Add Support<br />
  • 34. VMDirectPath for VMs<br />
  • 35. Available Infrastructure Services<br />Virtual Disk Thin Provisioning<br />vStorage VMFS Volume Grow<br />vNetwork Distributed Switch<br />IPv6 Support<br />Power Management<br />
  • 36. Virtual Disk Thin Provisioning<br />VMware thin provisioning enables virtual machines to utilize storage space on an as-needed basis, further increasing utilization of storage for virtual environments<br />
  • 37. vStorage VMFS Volume Grow<br /><ul><li>The list of possible extents to add will not include LUNs with an existing VMFS, or an RDM mounted to a VM</li></li></ul><li>vNetwork Distributed Switch<br />Created in Inventory  Networking<br />Select which hosts are going to use this switch. Only unallocated NICs can be selected.<br />A default Portgroup called dvPortGroup can be created.<br />
  • 38. IPv6 Support<br />vSphere 4.0 adds support for IPv6 for the following:<br />ESX/ESXiVMkernel, <br />Service Console<br />vCenter Server<br />This enables vSphere to manage ESX and ESXi hosts through vCenter Server in mixed IPv4/IPv6 environments<br />Virtual Machine client support for IPv6 is still entirely dependent on the Guest OS<br />Network storage support (iSCSI and NFS) over IPv6 is still experimental though<br />
