  • 5. Oracle Virtualization StrategyDesktop To Data Center Virtualization • Virtualization offers key cost savings benefits – Server consolidation – Lower energy, facility and labor costs • Oracle’s virtualization strategy offers much more – Most comprehensive desktop to data center product portfolio – Integrated management of the full hardware and software stack from applications to disk – Integrated support • Virtualization that makes software easier to deploy, easier to manage, and easier to support – Not Virtualization for Virtualization’s Sake5 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates.

  • 9. Storage Considerations For Your Virtual Environment • Will I need less storage? • Will my applications run faster? • Will I be more efficient? • Will managing the storage be simpler?9 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
  • 10. Storage Silos or Application IO Clobbering Which do you prefer? Virtualized environments need predictable performance levels that can adjust with growth or changes in SLAs. • SLAs demand a required level of application performance • Traditional storage arrays provide static performance levels • VMs must be segmented to different storage arrays • VMs will compete with each other for IO10 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
  • 11. Scale Up or Scale Out But not both Virtualized environment’s capacity needs will expand and contract as new VMs are added and others are moved. • Traditional storage arrays only scale to about 40% of capacity before performance is maxed out • Two controller storage arrays don’t scale for performance without a forklift upgrade • A failed component can affect the performance of multiple VMs11 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
  • 12. Vendor Sprawl A necessary evil? Most virtualization strategies rely on multiple hardware and software vendors to provide a complete architecture. • Purchasing, maintenance and training for multiple systems becomes very complex • Compatibility issues are more prevalent since testing is difficult • Expenses rise without adequate economies of scale12 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

  • 14. Quality of Service Model First Class Business Class Coach Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3QoS is more than where you sit, it’s also the priority and class of service you get • How fast you board and exit • The number of attendants per passenger • The seat size and leg room • The entertainment selections14 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates.

  • 16. Storage in a Virtual Environment The Traditional Approach • The storage sees all VM’s the same • Contention is created • SLAs are missed16 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
  • 17. Storage in a Virtual Environment The New Flexible Approach • Storage attributes and priorities mapped to the virtual machine • Different service levels allocated for VM images, SWAP files, data etc • Different media and protocols for test, production & backup17 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates.

Storage Provisioning Can Get Complicated 1 Application owner needs more storage 2 After delay app owner Virtualization admin receives more storage figures out how to add 6 Virtualization admin more storage adds new storage 5 4 3 Network admin connects Storage admin creates the new storage the requested storage23 Copyright © 2011, Oracle and/or its affiliates.
