  • 1. Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing Corp., U.S.A. VDI OVERVIEW Paul Kramer Information Systems Manager
  • 2. Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing Corp., U.S.A. Located in Lincoln, NE  Lincoln Facts: ◦ Population: 226,000 ◦ Size: 75 sq miles ◦ Capital City
  • 3. KMM PRODUCTS – CP DIVISION
  • 4. RC DIVISION PRODUCTSPort Authority Trans-Hudson Corp. PA-5 MTA New York City Transit R160B (R179) MTA Metro-North Railroad M-8 MTA New York City Transit R142 (R188)
  • 5. KMM FACILITY  Plant Facts: ◦ Opened: 1974 ◦ Employees: ~1700 ◦ Buildings: 10 ◦ Size: ~2 million sq/ft
  • 6. INFORMATION SYSTEMS AREAConsumer Products Plant (~ 1.2 mil sq/ft) • 11 People • One Manager (Me) • One Supervisor (oversees software development) • Two Desktop/Network/Server Techs • One iSeries Administrator • Six Software Developers (Four Lansa, One .Net/SQL, One .Net/Lansa) • Data center for entire facility located in Consumer ProductsRail Car Products Plant (~ 1 mil sq/ft) • Four People • One Manager (Me) • One Desktop/Network Tech • One SAP/DataServices Specialist • One .Net/SQL Developer
  • 7. WHY VDI?Reasons for VDI • Mobility • Many users needed pc resources in multiple locations • Ability to work outside physical walls • Lack of technical resources • Having a small number of hardware techs, needed way to maximize their time • Travel • Workers travel to Kawasaki headquarters or other Kawasaki entities • Economic downturn • Limited budget due to economy • Aging PC fleet • Due to extending PC life due to economic factors, we have large qty of aging workstations.Why VDI vs XenApp, ThinApp, App-V • VDI provides us a complete solution. • We have legacy apps that did not package well in other technology. • Distributed access needs. • We can still utilize “packaging” apps along with VDI if we desire.
  • 8. KMM’S VDI APPROACHOwn It – Use It • Prove your concept with what you have! • VDI does not require new, cutting edge hosts • Our initial 100 user pilot consisted of: • Unidesk 1.0 desktop layering software • Desktop provisioning, image management, application delivery, storage reduction • VMware vSphere 4 Standard Hosts - 3 – Dell 1950 Servers • Dual, quad core 2.0 GHz cpu, 64GB ram • Repurposed from datacenter virtualization, consolidation project • Citrix XenDesktop – 2 – Virtual Servers • One Microsoft SQL, One Citrix XenDesktop Delivery Controller • Running in virtualized data center • VMware vCenter – shared with virtual server environment • Storage – 1 – Dell AX4-5F (Entry Level Storage Appliance) • Repurposed from datacenter virtualization, consolidation project • Cost us less than $50,000 to complete.
  • 9. OUR CURRENT DEPLOYMENTUnidesk 2.0.4 • Persistent Desktops • 12GB user drive space (thin provisioned) • 2GB Ram • Windows 7 32bitVMware vSphere 5 ESXi Standard Hosts • Dell 1950 Servers • Dual, quad core 2.0 GHz cpu, 64GB ram • No hard drives, boots from USB thumb drive • No FC cards required • Six NIC’s – (All gigabit) • Four for vSphere • Two for NFS (Tintri)Citrix XenDesktop 5.4 • Running in our virtualized data centerVMware vCenter Server 5Storage – Tintri T540 • Purchased in June 2012Deployment Strategy • Manpower limitations and cost effectiveness. • New users get virtual. • If their pc has a problem, migrate to virtual.
  • 10. UNIDESK OVERVIEWWhy Unidesk? • Complete solution • Ease of deployment • Customer serviceUnidesk Environment • Version 2.0.4 (currently migrating users to this environment) • 51 application layers • Density: During beta testing 40-45 desktops per host, may be able to reach 50 • Version 1.6.3 • 64 application layers • Density: 35 desktops max during pilot (not on Tintri Storage, likely could have been higher after moving to Tintri) • Total storage requirement for 200 persistent desktops is about 1.6 TB (8GBs per desktop)!!Unidesk System Overview • Unidesk 2.0 Management Interface
  • 11. TINTRI OVERVIEWWhy Tintri? • Performance • Scalability • Ease of implementation and use • PriceTintri Storage • T-540 Appliance • 13.5 TB Usable • 10 Gbe to our VDI environment switch stack • 1 Gbe to each host from the switch stack • Prior to Tintri it would take almost an hour to reboot (“boot storm”) an entire host of desktop (35 max), with Tintri, I can reboot (“boot storm”) 150 desktops in around 5 minutes!!! • In 5 months of production use, Tintri has yet to serve any daily desktop use data from anything other than “Flash”, the only time the appliance serves from disk is during nightly backups!!Tintri Storage Overview • Tintri Interface
  • 12. DISCUSSION – WHAT WE LEARNEDHardware/Infrastructure • Latest greatest hardware not required for hosts • Network performance is not a problem in our environment • During normal office desktop utilization 300-900 kbits (less than 1% of 100mb link) • Thin/Zero client vs Repurposed PC product • We use Dell/Wyse Xenith zero-clients. • Tested several “thick to thin” products, found them unstable and not matureSoftware • Why Citrix XenDesktop vs. VMware View • WAN user experience far superior (via internet or private global network) • Greater product acceptance worldwide • Unidesk Gold Image • Keep the same original install forever!! • Windows version • Migrating to virtual desktop of same OS, (XP to XP, Win 7 to Win 7) allows for much easier transition.
  • 13. DISCUSSION – WHAT WE LEARNEDUser Experience • Some struggles early • Few bugs in software • Issues with conversion from Windows XP to Windows 7 • Recent feedback • “Faster than my desktop.” • “I love the mobility!” • “When can I get one?” • “Can you deploy to these users in my department also?” • “I can’t tell the difference between this and my desktop.” • “This is cool!”
  • 14. ROI ANALYSIS VDI ROI Based on normally replacing machines on a 5 year rotation life cycle ▲Red information is savings Blue information is costs. $300.00 Thin Client Cost 500 Desktops converting to VDI $270.00 VDI Software / User 5 Hardware rotation cycle / years $90.00 VDA Windows License / year $800.00 Avg cost per workstation $200.00 Labor Savings per computer / year $125.00 Sale price used pc $54.00 VDI Software Support/Maint per user per year Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6-10 Qty Moved to VDI 100 100 100 100 100Savings Info Qty PC Normally Replaced 100 100 100 100 100 100 Desktop Hardware Savings▲ $80,000.00 $80,000.00 $80,000.00 $80,000.00 $80,000.00 $80,000.00 Labor Savings▲ $20,000 $40,000 $60,000 $80,000 $100,000 $100,000Thin client costs Replace PC move to Thin Client 100 100 100 100 100 0 Replace PC move to Thin Client Cost $30,000.00 $30,000.00 $30,000.00 $30,000.00 $30,000.00 $0.00Additional Savings Old PC Hardware sale earnings▲ $12,500.00 $12,500.00 $12,500.00 $12,500.00 $12,500.00 $0.00Software Licensing VDI Software $27,000 $27,000 $27,000 $27,000 $27,000 $0 VDI Software Maint/Support $0 $5,400 $10,800 $16,200 $21,600 $27,000 VDA Windows License $9,000.00 $18,000.00 $27,000.00 $36,000.00 $45,000.00 $45,000.00Infrastructure Switches, Storage, Memory, Misc HW and $17,000.00 $75,000.00 $17,000.00 $17,000.00 $8,500.00 $8,500.00 Annual Support Yearly Savings $29,500.00 -$22,900.00 $40,700.00 $46,300.00 $60,400.00 $99,500.00 5 year total savings $154,000.00 + Yearly savings thereafter $99,500.00 A bonus of the VDA license is it allows us to run Windows 7, as the VDA license includes the Windows license for each virtual desktop user, thus we wont need to purchase upgrades for those pcs. This is an additional savings of $65,000.00
