  • Agenda Solutions for Windows Server ® Virtualization Sizing, Deployment, and Management of Virtual Machines Virtual Machine Lifecycle Development and Management Server Virtualization with HP Servers
  • What Is Server Virtualization?
    • Server Virtualization
      • Server virtualization uses software to partition a physical server. Virtualization allows a single server to support multiple logical servers or virtual machines.
    • What is Hyper-V™?
      • Server role included with Windows Server ® 2008 that enables hypervisor-driven virtualization
        • Hardware-specific requirements (AMD-V and Intel-VT)
  • Why Virtualize? More workloads on fewer servers for higher utilization Fewer physical servers save power and reduce management time Workloads can be moved between servers to optimize performance and reduce downtime X Consolidation Efficiency Flexibility Isolation Reduce hard dependencies between infrastructure domains 100% 80% 60% 40% 20% 0% Utilization
  • Server Trends
    • Hardware
      • Moving to multi-core
      • Total cost of ownership (TCO) is key, power draw is critical
      • Criteria: price, power, and performance
      • Consider containers
    • Virtualization and utilization
      • Using every server at optimal capacity
      • Monitor, measure, and manage
    100% 80% 60% 40% 20% 0% Utilization

  • VM Lifecycle Development and Management Deployment of virtual machines alone is not a solution
    • IT organizations failing to "operationalize" their approach toward virtual server investments should expect their TCO, as well as exposure, to significantly increase, not decrease!
    • Virtual machines help you to recover from your mistakes… but not necessarily in preventing them!
    Source: Gartner, Inc. “The Impact of Server Virtualization on IT Operations Processes and Organizations” by Cameron Haight, June 2008
    • How has virtual server technology affected staffing to server/workload ratios?
    • Depends upon environment
      • Application
      • Test vs. production
      • Skills maturity
      • Standard builds
      • Automation
    • Other areas need to be considered:
      • SAN / Storage admins
      • Network admins
    2x < 2x 4x 3x >4x Other No change
  • VM Lifecycle Development and Management
    • Configuration management is essential for virtualization
    • Change and release management needed to control virtual machine sprawl
    • Problem / Bug tracking is vital to prevent widespread virtual machine problems (especially when using parent/child virtual machines)
    • Performance and capacity management to ensure that performance is real and sustained
    • For large deployments, consider creating a “VM Factory” (a server-based development environment to create/develop/maintain virtual machines)
    • Develop a Virtualization Strategy to mitigate these issues. See the document at: http://h30424.www3.hp.com/index.html?bpKey=Virtualization_Content_Menu&pfVid=25
    Define/Design Develop/Test Deploy / Pilot Test Manage/ Revise VM lifecycle is much like an application lifecycle
  • Which Applications Should Be Virtual?
    • Review virtualization opportunities
    • Develop a checklist for virtualization requirements and criteria
    • Use a proof of concept (POC) / Pilot environment
    • Monitor and manage virtual machine hosts to ensure requirements are met
    • Consolidate applications in a virtual machine that doesn’t use the same system resources or isolate them in separate virtual machines
    • Measure and test before and after deployments and migrations, both host and guests
    Test / verify Pilot Production Deploy, manage, and optimize Source: Gartner, Inc. “The Impact of Server Virtualization on IT Operations Processes and Organizations” by Cameron Haight, June 2008 Which Applications ? High utilization and high I/O >25% utilization and exceptions 15-20% utilization ERP / LOB high utilization Terminal Servers, Citrix, other thin client workloads File / Print Servers E-mail or Messaging Servers BI /Cognos workloads of mid-to-low utilization Directory Services, Domain Controllers Database Servers SharePoint servers w/mid-to-low utilization Gateways, controllers , Firewall Servers Heavily consolidated servers Security Servers w/mid-to-low utilizations Portals, Web/J2EE Web Servers Design virtual servers to meet your requirements
    • Use the information from Perfmon and other tools to measure the individual application utilization:
    • CPU Utilization (%) – average and peak CPU utilizations on the physical server
