Transcript

  • 1. Compliance Challenges in a Virtualized Environment<br />Ran Nahmias<br />Dir. Virtualization & Cloud Solutions<br />
  • 2. Presenter<br />Ran Nahmias<br />Director, Virtualization and Cloud Solutions<br />Net Optics, Inc.<br />Over 15 years of experience in networking, security, desktop and server virtualization in engineering, product management and deployment roles for market leaders such as Check Point Software Technologies, Nice Systems, Microsoft and Net Optics.<br />
  • 3. Agenda<br /><ul><li>Data Center in 2011
  • 4. Virtualization in the Data Center
  • 5. Monitoring and Compliance in virtualized areas of the Data Center </li></li></ul><li> Data Center trends and predictions for 2011 <br /><ul><li>Data Centers will continue to grow in 2011; exponential growth of data will necessitate expansion.
  • 6. Virtualization deployment increasing year over year in data centers.
  • 7. According to Garter, over 30% of x86 architectureservers workloads running on VMs
  • 8. Industry figures describe up to 60% virtualization indata centers. 20%-25% seems more realistic inaverage (some areas higher, some areas not virtualized at all) </li></li></ul><li> Convergence @ the Data Center<br />Hypervisor Virtual Servers<br />Physical Servers<br /><ul><li>Most enterprise data centers now have physical servers and infrastructure as well as a virtual environment.
  • 9. Physical still bigger than virtual, but the gap is shrinking </li></ul>Monitoring <br />tools<br />
  • 10. The visibility challenge in the hybrid data center<br />Hypervisor Virtual Servers<br />Physical Servers<br />VM-1<br />VM-2<br />VM-3<br />Server 1<br />Server 2<br />Server 3<br />Virtual Switch<br />VMWare ESX<br /><ul><li>Current monitoring tools deployed on physical networks
  • 11. Traffic from VMs to external peers visible on wired network
  • 12. Inter-VM traffic hidden from wired network and the deployed tools</li></ul>Monitoring <br />tools<br />
  • 13. Hypervisor Virtual Stack Monitoring Challenge <br />ESX Host<br /><ul><li>Online provider of prescription refills
  • 14. Confidential data entered by patient and processed for verification
  • 15. Flow must adhere to HIPAA Security and Privacy
  • 16. Online store on Web server
  • 17. Customer makes a purchase and provides credit card details
  • 18. Card being processed
  • 19. Flow must adhere to PCI compliance</li></ul>SQL<br />$$$<br />SQL<br />Web<br />Server<br />Web<br />Server<br />Sales<br />Force<br />$$$<br />Web<br />Server<br />OS<br />OS<br />OS<br />OS<br />Virtual Switch<br /><ul><li>Example: E-commerce solution in a box

  • 22. The virtual network traffic must be “exposed”
  • 23. Turn the RED into BLUE</li></ul>Monitoring <br />tools<br />
  • 24. Increasing visibility into the virtual networks<br /><ul><li>Solution should provide complete visibility to virtual network traffic
  • 25. Virtual environment performance cannot be affected negatively
  • 26. The same stringent compliance regulations must be enforced across the converged infrastructure
  • 27. Ideally, the solution integrates with virtualization technologies, does not require architectural changes and has small foot print and no significant performance effect. </li></li></ul><li>Network traffic convergence: unifying the <br />Hypervisor Virtual Servers<br />Physical Servers<br />VM-1<br />VM-2<br />VM-3<br />Server 1<br />Server 2<br />Server 3<br />Virtual Switch<br />VMWare ESX<br />Monitoring <br />tools<br />
