A unique solution that enables the network to be Virtual Machine aware. The network can be configured and managed for 1000s of virtual ports (v-ports), rather than just physical ports.

With VMready, as VMs migrate across physical hosts, so do their network attributes. Virtual machines can be added, moved and removed while retaining the same ACLs, QoS and VLAN attributes. VMready allows for a ‘define once, use many’ configuration that evolves as the server and network topologies evolve.

VMready works with all virtualization products, including VMware, Microsoft’s Hyper-V, Xen and KVM, without modification of Virtual Machine Hypervisors or Guest operating systems.

    VMready VMready Presentation Transcript

    • Virtual Machine aware Networking
      VMready™
      BLADE Network Technologies
    • Servers before Virtualization
      Web Server
      (external)
      App Server
      (R&D only)
      db Server
      (payroll only)
      email Server
      (internal only)
      Server dedicated to application
      • Poor utilization of server H/W
      Network config per server
      • VLAN
      • ACLs
      • QoS
      Users can access
      Data and Apps
      Data is protected from unauthorized access
      Customers
      2
    • Virtualization before VMready™
      Virtualization
      • Increased H/W utilization
      • Multiple Virtual Machines / Physical server
      However the network is not aware of Virtual Machines
      • Virtual Machine security & QoS tied to physical server
      • No ability to configure per VM
      • Inflexible
      Users can access
      Data and Apps
      Data is protected from unauthorized access
      Customers
      3
    • VM Migration before VMready™
      VM may become insecure or disconnected
      Migration
      • VMs can move to another physical server
      • Allows workload balancing and HA failover
      However with existing networks manual configuration is required:
      • Prone to security holes
      • Disconnected users
      • Disconnected customers
      • Overworked network admins
      Users get disconnected
      Data becomes unprotected
      Customers locked out
      4
    • Virtualization with VMready™
      Configuration follows VM in real-time
      VMready networks are VM aware
      • Configuration per VM
      • Security, QoS,,, follow the VM
      • With VMready Migration is :
      • Safe
      • Usable
      • Easy
      • Automatic network configuration
      • Enables Dynamic data centers
      VMready switch
      Users can access
      Data and Apps
      Data is protected from unauthorized access
      Customers

      physical ports
      v-ports
      1000’s of Virtual ports
      10’s of Physical ports
      Physical ports are the old switching unit
      • Not aware of Virtual Machines (VMs)
      • Configuration per physical port only
      • No flexibility for unique VM needs
      • No flexibility to handle VM migrations
      Virtual ports are the new switching unit
      • Fully aware of Virtual Machines
      • Configuration per virtual port
      • Automated Network mobility
      • Configuration follows Virtual Machines in real-time during migration
      6
    • Virtual Advantages of VMready
      • Cost-effective
      • No hardware upgrade required
      • Runs on switch – no server CPU overhead
      “Let servers serve” – a leading analyst
      • Easy
      • Simplified management
      • Anywhere a VM can move, VMready can support it
      • Preserves VM Vendor Choice
      • Support for all major server virtualization platforms and versions
      • Works across multi-vendor network equipment
      • No special operating systems, adapters, cables
      • Complies with IEEE standards
      • First network product to automatically support VM migration
      7
    • Cloud Ready Network Architecture
      Addresses network requirements in five critical areas:
      Cloud Ready “Truths”:
      • Solutions should be OPEN – with multi-vendor support
      • Customers prefer incremental deployment, not rip and replace
