Transcript

  • 1. Autolab - demoCALIN DAMIAN TANASE
  • 2. Agenda Why? What’s needed?  Nesting  Hardware How? Autolab Let’s see it in action – Demo Time
  • 3. Why? You hear and you forget, you see and you remember, you do and you understand (Confucius) Hands-on Learning  Break it & fix it (then repeat the process)  Get your hands dirty Exam study  Follow examples in study material  Confirm that what you have read actually works as expected
  • 4. What’s needed? Ranging from a single machine(*) to a few racks  Hardware  The “official” line  HCL/Hardware Compatibility Guide  The “Whitebox” line (*)  http://www.vm-help.com/  http://ultimatewhitebox.com/ Licensing  VMware – NFRs (for partners) OR Evals  Microsoft – Evals / Technet subscriptions
  • 5. Nesting With ESXi 5.0  you may have been able to run 64-bit nested virtual machines without EPT/RVI support but performance was extremely poor With ESXi 5.1  VHV now requires EPT/RVI Good resource – William Lam’s Blog  http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/
  • 6. Hardware CPU  EPT (Intel) / RVI (AMD) RAM – how much is enough?(8 GB dimm/so-dimm sticks) SSD – is it really needed? Laptop or PC If running under hosted virtualization platform like VMware Workstation/Fusion – no worries If ESXi is bare-metal installed  Motherboard – disk controller support ; NIC support (optional)
  • 7. How? ESXi bare-metal install  You will need another box/laptop to run your browser/ vSphere Client from  Better resource utilization (i.e. you will need less hardware to achieve the same) Install under hosted virtualization platform (Workstation/Fusion)  You can share between lab workloads and your common usage  Better mobility if it’s a laptop 
  • 8. Autolab “Package contents”  Prebuilt Open Source VMs  Shell of other VMs  Automation for the installation of operating systems  Automation for applications install into these VMs Autolab will produce a nested vSphere 5.0 /4.1 environment  Router, NAS, DC, vCenter, ESXi hosts, vMA, vCloud, View 2xCS, 1xSS
