  • Let’s talk first about hardware.
  • Let’s take a look at how VMware is continuing to differentiate in the area of distributed virtualization. VMware’s vision in this area is to create the self-optimizing, self-protecting datacenter. Sounds simple, right? What this means is: across server, storage, and network, we aim to deliver resource management, availability, mobility, and security services for all workloads deployed within the VMware Infrastructure. This is an overview of the rich set of Virtual Infrastructure Services that VMware is already providing and looking into providing in the next few years. These categories represent the different elements associated with quality of service. For example, with VI we can ensure proper resources are assigned with VMs, that those VM’s are highly available and can be easy migrated without downtime, and finally that they are secure. VI delivers on quality of service through advanced capabilities we have built and are continuing to build into our products.

    • Connecting Computing Clouds
  • 3. Where is hardware going?
    • x86 continues to move upstream
    • Massive compute power available
    • Power usage grows even more critical
    • Highly-connected compute, networking, and storage
      • Emergence of high-speed, shared interconnects
      • Shared storage becomes less expensive and more pervasive
      • Networking and storage riding x86 improvement curve
    VMware transforms powerful, disparate hardware into Virtual Infrastructure

  • 11. Hypervisor Platform Direction
    • In a phase of tremendous innovation driven by:
        • Proliferation of cores and potential inefficiencies
          • Intel and AMD launches make 16+ core systems
        • Technology allows more workloads for virtualization
          • 2nd generation CPU and memory HW assist, I/O acceleration, Paravirtualization
        • Rapidly growing move to pervasive, mission-critical use
          • Requires huge focus on reliability and manageability
    • Thin architecture
      • Unparalleled security and reliability
        • Compact 32MB footprint
        • Only OS-independent design focused on virtualization
        • Integrated in server systems
  • 12. ESX Server 3i Brings Plug-and-Play Resources
    • Straight from the OEM to the Shared Resource Pool
      • Pre-installed
      • Pre-configured
      • Pre-certified

  • 14. VMware Infrastructure Vision
      • Moves functionality traditionally considered “management” into the infrastructure
      • Any application gains the benefits, just by virtue of being in a VM
      • Provides new reasons to go virtual

  • 16.
    • Provide the fastest way to provision and manage IT services
    • Provide the most resilient and highly available compute platform
    • Provide the easiest compute platform to deploy and operate
    • Simplify enterprise desktop management through virtualization

  • 17. Agenda
    • Where is Hardware Going
    • Where is Software Going
    • Connecting Computing Clouds
  • 18. Virtualization Has Simplified Software
    • Easier to develop and test
    • Easier to deploy
    • Easier to protect
    • Virtual appliances have taken this even further
    Checkpoint Windows FIREWALL Virtual Appliance
  • 19. Where is software going?
    • More diversity in OS and application use
      • Simultaneous use of Linux, Solaris, and Windows farms
      • Customized open source stacks and diverse versions/distributions
    • Services becoming disaggregated and distributed
      • SOA leads to many more components in use
      • SaaS and hosted computing options growing
    • Management task becomes even more difficult
      • Need a way to normalize management approach
      • Can’t stifle software progress along the way
  • 20. The same process must be executed differently depending on the hardware, OS, or application environment Software’s Growing Management Complexity Provisioning, Backup, Load Balancing, DR, … DB2 9 App Stack A App Stack B App Stack C Process Process Process
  • 21.
    • A logical IT Service provided as a collection of VMs
      • Application and Infrastructure VMs
      • Logical network connections
    • Managed as a single-unit
      • Treated as one entity (provisioning, backup)
      • The right view for managing & achieving SLAs
    Normalization is Needed: vService Tomcat App Server e-commerce vService E-commerce vService Load Balancer IIS #1 IIS #2 Firewall Oracle
  • 22. vServices Provide a Better Unit of Management
      • Complex application stacks become standardized software containers

    • Connecting Computing Clouds
  • 24.
    • VMware enables a local datacenter “cloud”
      • On-demand capacity via DRS
      • Self-healing and tolerant of hardware failures
      • Applications seamlessly move between resources
    • VMware enables hosting providers offer better services
      • Hosted/SaaS offerings can be standard x86 applications
      • On-demand capacity even more critical
      • Offer customers add-on services of backup, DR, and security
    VMware’s Role in “Cloud Computing”
  • 25.
    • VM and vService mobility goes even further
      • Compute-, Network-, and Storage-VMotion
      • Extending from the LAN to Wide-Area-Networks
    • Manage vServices independently of where they run
      • vService includes full state and infrastructure instructions
      • Just as VMs separate software from hardware, vServices separate software and software management from the hardware
    Next Phase: Connecting the Datacenter Clouds
  • 26.
    • Extends Virtual Infrastructure beyond a single datacenter
      • Use secondary DR site for workload overflow
      • Leverage other departments’/LOBs’ resources
      • Rent resources from hosters when appropriate
      • All while maintaining the IT Service SLA
    Next Phase: Connecting the Datacenter Clouds Virtual Infrastructure Hosting Provider Primary Datacenter Secondary Datacenter Virtual Infrastructure vService vService vService VM
  • 27. Summary
    • Virtual Infrastructure aggregates hardware into flexible resource pools and creates a truly virtual datacenter
    • Virtualization simplifies software management, and vServices extend this even further
    • Building upon VM mobility, virtual infrastructure, enables effective use of resources that are local or remote, owned or rented
