  • What is it?

    VMware has created (2) new bundles of popular products.
    All these products were either available as standalone products but VMware has decided based on customer feedback to create the:

    vRealize Cloud Management Platform, aimed at Enterprise

    Available on a Per CPU or VM basis includes:

    IT Business Management – Financial Analysis, forecasting, chargeback and costing tool for the virtual environment.
    vCloud Automation Center – Policy based automation of the datacenter
    vCenter Operations Management Suite – Health, Risk and Efficiency analytics to help with root-cause analysis, capacity planning and forecasting and optimization of virtual machines.
    Log Insight – Log management and analytics to assist with route cause analysis and troubleshooting

    vRealize Operations Insight aimed at the mid market.

    Avaliable as an Add-On to vSphere with Operations Management – vSOM

    Log Insight – Log management and analytics tool we just discussed
    vCOPS Advanced – Health Risk Efficiency Analytics tool with custom dashboards, compliance view, 3rd party monitoring tool support and vSphere hardening, change and configuration compliance
  • VMware with partnerships with OEM hardware manufacturers has entered into the Hyper Converged Infrastructure space.

    EVO:RAIL is not reference architecture it is a pod based approach to the datacenter

    Each EVO:RAIL Pod includes 4 compute/storage and network nodes within a 2U chassis and expandable up to 4 total chassis or 16 total compute nodes.

    On top of these nodes we layer vSphere, Virtual San and a custom GUI EVO:RAIL management engine designed at greatly simplifying deployment and decreasing the amount of time needed to deploy a fully functional datacenter.

    vSphere Web Client and vCenter Server will also be supported if you would rather not use the onboard GUI.

    EVO:Rail plug-in to VM creation can be achieved in as little at 15min.

    Scalable upto around 40TB of Storage
    400 general purpose VMs or 1000 Virtual Desktops VM’s to give you a sense of scale.

  • EVO:RACK currently in tech preview brings Hyper Converged to the Enterprise.

    Available in ½ rack and full rack increments includes Compute, Storage, Networking, the entire vCloud and vRealize suites, VSAN for cirtualized Storage, NSX for virtualized Networking, Switching and EVO:RACK Management stack.

    For the first time ever VMware has released the truly all-in-one, pod based, cloud architecture which greatly simplifies the adaptation of a fully redundant, scalable, automated, private cloud datacenter.

  • vCloud Hybrid Service rebranded to vCloud Air
    New Products:
    DevOps as a Service
    Database as a Service (My SQL and SQL)
    Object Based Storage as a Service
    Mobility Management as a Service
    Cloud Management as a Service
    RDSH hosted applications as a Service

    Why is it important?
    More opportunities for offloading Dev/Test to the cloud.
    Cloud based applications without the need for DaaS
    Database and Object Based storage increase the use cases available for cloud
    Mobility Management can now be consumed as a cloud service
  • What’s New?
    Leveraging a virtual appliance and the vSphere web client we are able to deploy a VMware OpenStack distribution fully supported on vSphere.

    Why is it important?
    Leveraging the best in class Hypervisor, Software Defined Storage and Networking giving developers flexibility and IT confidence and control by allowing them to leverage their existing architecture.
    VMware also delivers greater value by layering vCenter Operations, Log Insight, vCloud Automation and ITBM to give IT better control, visibility, cost analytics and performance metrics

    VMware also delivers greater value by layering vCenter Operations, Log Insight, vCloud Automation and ITBM to give IT better control, visibility, cost analytics and performance metrics within the OpenStack cluster,

  • What’s New?

    Virtual Volumes is current in Beta and is changing the center of the Storage Universe from the LUN to the VM or superficially VMDK.

    Traditional storage is typically carved into pools by the Storage Administrator and further carved into LUNs where the majority of the policies such as snapshots, replication, clones, RAID etc are set.
    LUNs also further increase the complexity requiring multiple redundant mount points to each host so in the event of an unexpected host failure LUNs are assessable by the remainder of the cluster.

    Virtual volumes allows administrators to carve up storage to meet the requirements of an individual VMDK or VMs. Protocol Endpoint allows for 1 mount point per host to each storage array, regardless of the amount of virtual volumes.

    Why is it important?
    Snapshot, clone or replicate on a per VM basis from the storage array.
    Enforce application level SLAs on a VM level instead of at the storage level.
    Eliminate the need for LUNs.
    Storage Administrator can still control storage via capacity pools.
    VMware Administrators can now be friends with the Storage Team


  • What’s New?
    VMware acquired CloudVolumes which allows the delivery of any number of applications and data to any number of virtual machines in milliseconds or seconds.
    Direct integration with virtual infrastructure and storage
    Shared volumes: install once, use anywhere
    Applications delivered via CloudVolumes are indistinguishable from native applications
    Highly saleable
    Achieved through modular technology, allowing Shared Volume (modules) to be shared across any number of VM’s easily.

    Why is it important?
    Deliver applications to multiple VM’s all at once
    Update applications across multiple VM’s simultaneously
    Achieved through modular technology, allowing Shared Volume (modules) to be shared across any number of VM’s easily.
  • What’s New?
    VMware leverages Nvidia Grid to provide high end 3D graphics to the virtual desktop.
    Why is it important?
    Run 3D graphic intensive applications through a virtual desktop powered by Nvidia Grid.
    Helps closed the performance gap between VDI and Power Users.
    Access to all critical applications, including most 3D-intensive applications from anywhere on any device.
    Run applications like CAD on any device, including Google Chrome books
    Google Chrome books have the view client preinstalled.
  • SAP HANA in an in memory real time data platform for analytics and application delivery.
  • Containers have been around forever but Docker has really made them popular with the advent of the application era. Docker allows a developer to create applications once, with the use of the container deliver this application across any device or cloud infrastructure.

    What’s New?
    VMware Partners with Docker, Pivotal and Google to bring container support to vSphere.

    Why is it important?

    Easier for IT organizations to run containers on existing vSphere infrastructure.
    Developers can continue to use the technology they need and IT can easily facilitate this on existing vSphere infrastructure.
    VMware is bringing the benefits of it’s software defined compute, network and storage by allowing containers to be created on-top of vSphere VM’s.
    vCloud Air will also be able to support containerized applications for organizations looking to enable the cloud environment thorough Application as a Service.
  • What’s New?
    This will complement the Docket Containers support providing a fast, scalable differential clones of a live running VM.
    Why is it important?

    Create a clone VM and keep track of change log data
    Reduce the start-up of child VMs <1s
    Allows for just-in-time creation of VM’s
    VDI and application delivery are great use cases allowing for VDI desktops and applications to be cloned and presented on an as needed basis.
  • EVO:RAIL and EVO:RACK will change the way we approach datacenter design
    OpenStack and Container Support gives developers freedom and IT control and agility
    Virtual Volumes will drastically simplify storage in the datacenter
    Nvidia Grid support on Horizon VIEW will help companies transition power users to VDI
    vMotion improvements give more control and flexibility by allowing cluster migration and site migration easily and efficiently.
    FT is now a useable feature by supporting larger VM’s I anticipate later improvements to increase the vCPU support count
    Workspace suite brings an all in one approach to application delivery and device management.
