  1. 1. Managing the Impact of Virtualization Technology on Your Network Josh Stephens, VP & Head Geek
  2. 2. Introduction  A big “Howdy” from SolarWinds® based in Austin, Texas » Josh Stephens- SolarWinds Head Geek, Monster Blogger, and Constant Tweeter » Neal Mueller – Cisco Product Manager, Nexus 1000V  Today’s Topic: Managing the Impact of Virtualization Technology on Your Network  Who is SolarWinds? » What we do… » Who are our customers? » The SolarWinds community…
  3. 3. Housekeeping  Can you hear me now?  If not, use the Q&A panel to contact the moderator  How do you ask questions?  Will this thing be recorded?
  4. 4. Agenda  Introductions  A refresher on virtualization  Cisco Nexus 1000V  How Orion helps  The only bundle in the business  Orion/Nexus Demonstration  Summary and Q&A
  5. 5. Server Virtualization Issues 1. vMotion moves VMs across physical ports— the network policy must follow 2. Impossible to view or apply network policy to locally switched traffic VLAN 101 3. Need collaboration between network and server admin vCenter Cisco CLI (NX-OS)
  6. 6. Cisco Nexus 1000V VM VM VM VM  Industry’s first 3rd-party vNetwork Distributed Switch for VMware vSphere Nexus  Built on Cisco NX-OS 1000V  Compatible with all switching platforms vSphere  Maintain vCenter provisioning model unmodified for server administration; allow network administration of virtual network via familiar Cisco NX-OS CLI Nexus 1000V Policy-Based Mobility of Network & Non-Disruptive VM Connectivity Security Properties Operational Model

Cisco Nexus 1000V Architecture VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM Nexus Nexus Nexus 1000V 1000V 1000V VEM VEM VEM vSphere vSphere vSphere Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM)  Virtual or Physical appliance running Cisco NXOS (supports HA) (VEM) Virtual Ethernet Module   Enables advanced networking Performs management, monitoring, & Nexus 1000V VSM Cisco Nexus 1000V Installation configuration on the hypervisor capability    ESX & ESXi with dedicated Provides each VM Tight integration with VMware vCenter “switch port”  VUM & Manual Installation  Collection of VEMs = 1 vNetwork  VEM is installed/upgraded like an ESX Distributed Switch vCenter patch
  12. 12. Port Profile: Network Admin View n1000v# show port-profile name WebProfile port-profile WebProfile description: Support Commands Include: status: enabled capability uplink: no system vlans:  Port management port-group: WebProfile config attributes:  VLAN switchport mode access  PVLAN switchport access vlan 110 no shutdown  Port-channel evaluated config attributes:  ACL switchport mode access  NetFlow switchport access vlan 110 no shutdown  Port Security assigned interfaces:  QoS Veth10
  13. 13. Features of the Nexus 1000V L2 Switching, 802.1Q Tagging, VLAN Segmentation, Rate Limiting (TX) Switching   IGMP Snooping, QoS Marking (COS & DSCP) Policy Mobility, Private VLANs w/ local PVLAN Enforcement Security   Access Control Lists (L2–4 w/ Redirect), Port Security Automated vSwitch Config, Port Profiles, Virtual Center Integration Provisioning   Optimized NIC Teaming with Virtual Port Channel – Host Mode VMotion Tracking, ERSPAN, NetFlow v.9 w/ NDE, CDP v.2 Visibility   VM-Level Interface Statistics Virtual Center VM Provisioning, Cisco Network Provisioning, CiscoWorks Management   Cisco CLI, Radius, TACACs, Syslog, SNMP (v.1, 2, 3)
  14. 14. Flexible Deployment Options  All servers on VMware Compatibility List  All switches, including all Cisco switches  1G & 10G NICs
  15. 15. 100s of Companies Use Nexus 1000V  US Bottling Company “The Nexus 1000V simplifies collaboration within the IT department by clearly separating responsibilities for our server group and network group” »Rory Regan, Telecom Manager  European Insurance Conglomerate “Taking control of the Cisco Nexus 1000V was simplified and intuitive. The process of virtualization of our datacenter will in fact accelerate and we will be able to virtualize everything that has been not possible in the past.” »Julien Mousqueton, Technical Architect
  16. 16. Management – The Last Step in Success  Virtualized infrastructures need management and monitoring  Best in class management tools support management of virtual infrastructure out of the box J0sher2014  Orion from SolarWinds is the management choice for virtualized infrastructure
  17. 17. SolarWinds for the Cisco Nexus 1000V  Native support in Orion NPM  Discovers and monitors the Nexus 1000V  Monitor network traffic by VM, host, etc…  Automated notifications for virtual switch issues J0sher2014  Additional visibility with the Orion NetFlow Traffic Analyzer  NetFlow – who and what of traffic analysis  Especially helpful for virtualized application servers
  18. 18. Cisco Nexus 1000V + SolarWinds Orion Bundle  The three components to successful virtualization:  vSphere Enterprise Plus from VMware  Nexus 1000V from Cisco  Orion NPM from SolarWinds J0sher2014  Orion is the only management tool offered as a bundle with vSphere and the Nexus 1000V  Offered through your favorite reseller
