    • Agenda: • Trends with Server Virtualization • Cisco VN-Link Introduction • Cisco Nexus 1000V Overview & Architecture Deployment Scenarios Advanced Features • Additional Information © 2007 Focus Technology Solutions Confidential & Proprietary 3
    • Expanding Role of Server Virtualization Server Consolidation And Virtualization Are #1 And #2 Spending Priorities Source: Goldman Sachs CIO Survey 10% of server workloads virtualized in 2008; forecast to be 50%-60% in next 5 years Source: Industry analyst reports Increasing Use of VMotion and DRS resulting in Multiplicative Increase in Complexity Source: Cisco Desktop Virtualization Gaining Traction as Tool to Address Desktop Manageability, Security and Cost Source: Goldman Sachs IT Spending Survey © 2007 Focus Technology Solutions Confidential & Proprietary 4
    • Networking Challenges to Scaling Server Virtualization Security and Policy Operations and Organizational Enforcement Management Structure Lack of VM visibility, Applied at physical Muddled ownership accountability, and server—not the as server admin consistency individual VM must configure virtual network Inefficient Impossible to management model enforce policy for Organizational and inability to VMs in motion redundancy creates effectively compliance troubleshoot challenges © 2007 Focus Technology Solutions Confidential & Proprietary 5
    • Cisco Virtual Network Link – VN-Link Virtualizing the Network Domain •Virtual machine aware network and storage services •Abstract physical and logical infrastructure •Virtual machines are the new data center building block © 2007 Focus Technology Solutions Confidential & Proprietary 6
    • VN-Link Brings VM Level Granularity Problems: VMotion • VMotion may move VMs across physical ports—policy must follow • Impossible to view or apply policy to locally switched traffic • Cannot correlate traffic on physical links—from multiple VMs VLAN 101 VN-Link: •Extends network to the VM •Consistent services •Coordinated, coherent management © 2007 Focus Technology Solutions Confidential & Proprietary 7
    • Cisco Nexus 1000V Industry First 3rd Party Virtual Distributed Switch Nexus 1000V provides • enhanced VM switching for VMW ESX environments Server 1 Server 2 • Features VN-Link VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM capabilities: #1 #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #5 #7 #8 Policy-based VM VMware vSwitch 1000V Nexus 1000V VMware vSwitch Nexus 1000V Nexus connectivity VMW ESX VMW ESX Mobility of network and security properties Non-disruptive operational model • Ensures visibility and continued connectivity during VMotion Enabling Acceleration of Server Virtualization Benefits © 2007 Focus Technology Solutions Confidential & Proprietary 8
