  • 2. 01 Vsphere 5 vSphere 5.0 – What’s New© transtec AG 2010 || HauptversammlungExtended Board March 2011© transtec AG || Products & Solutions @ 24.06.2010 16.03.2011 || 2 || 2

  • 5. vSphere 5.0 CLI Components  ESXi Shell Rebranded Tech Support Mode Local and remote (SSH)  vCLI ‘esxcli’ Command Set ESXi Shell vCLI  Local and remote CLI  New and improved in 5.0 ‘vicfg’ Command Set  Remote CLI Only Other Commands:  vmware-cmd, vmkfstools, etc. vMA PowerCLI vCLI available for Linux and Windows  vMA vCLI Appliance  PowerCLI Windows CLI Tool19.06.2012 © 2010 transtec AG 5
  • 6. What is Auto Deploy• New host deployment method introduced in vSphere 5.0 • Based on PXE Boot • Works with Image Builder, vCenter Server, and Host Profiles • How it works: •PXE boot the server •ESXi image profile loaded into host memory via Auto Deploy Server •Configuration applied using Answer File / Host Profile •Host placed/connected in vCenter • Benefits •No boot disk •Quickly and easily deploy large numbers of ESXi hosts •Share a standard ESXi image across many hosts •Host image decoupled from the physical server • Recover host w/out recovering hardware or having to restore from backup19.06.2012 © 2012 ttec computer B.V. / transtec AG 6
  • 7. New Virtual Machine FeaturesvSphere 5.0 supports the industry’s most capable virtual machines Items which require HW version 8 in Italics VM Scalability  32 virtual CPUs per  1TB RAM per VM VM  4x previous capabilities!  3D graphics Richer Desktop Experience  Client-connected USB  VM BIOS boot order config API and devices PowerCLI interface  USB 3.0 devices  EFI BIOS  Smart Card Readers for Broader Device VM Console Access Coverage  UI for multi-core virtual  Support for Mac OS X CPUs servers Other new  Extended VMware Tools features compatibility19.06.2012 © 2012 ttec computer B.V. / transtec AG 7
  • 8. vSphere HA Primary ComponentsEvery host runs an agent ESX 01 ESX 03  Referred to as ‘FDM’ or Fault Domain Manger  One of the agents within the cluster is chosen to assume the role of the Master There is only one Master per cluster during normal operations  All other agents assume the role of SlavesThere is no more Primary/Secondary concept with vSphere HA ESX 02 ESX 04 vCenter 19.06.2012 © 2012 ttec computer B.V. / transtec AG 8
  • 9. vCenter CommunicationsVC communicates with the Master primarily  Once a Master is elected and contacts vCenter, vCenter sends a compatibility list to the Master. The Master saves this on a local disk, then pushes it out to the other hosts in the cluster. ESX 01 ESX 03  vCenter also communicates with the Master to update ESX 01 ESX 03 changes to VM states and configuration information.vCenter may communicate to the Slaves in certain situations, such as: • Scanning for a existing Master • If the Master states that it cannot reach a Slave. In this case, vCenter will try to contact the Slave to determine why. ESX 02 ESX 04 ESX 02 ESX 04 • When powering on a FT Secondary VM • When host is reported isolated or partitioned. vCenter vCenter19.06.2012 © 2012 ttec computer B.V. / transtec AG
  • 10. Storage Level CommunicationsOne of the most exciting new features of vSphere HA is its ability to use a storage subsystem for communication.The datastores used for this are referred to as ESX 01 ESX 03 ‘Heartbeat Datastores’.This provides for increased communication redundancy.Heartbeat datastores are used as a communication channel only when the management network is lost - such as in the case of isolation or network partitioning.

  • 12. New Networking Features• Two broad categories of features• Network Discovery and Visibility/Monitoring features • LLDP • NetFlow • Port Mirror• IO Consolidation (10 Gig) related features • New traffic types • User Defined Network Resource Pool ( VM traffic ) • Host Based Replication traffic• 802.1p Tagging (QoS)• TCP IP stack improvement • Vmknics will see following improvement • Higher throughput with small messages • Better IOPs scaling for iSCSI traffic19.06.2012 © 2010 transtec AG 12

  • 15. Introduction to VMFS-5• Enhanced Scalability • Increase the size limits of the filesystem & support much larger single extent VMFS-5 volumes. • Support for single extent 64TB DatastoresBetter Performance  Uses VAAI locking mechanism with more tasksEasier to manage and less overhead  Space reclamation on thin provisioned LUNs  Smaller sub blocks  Unified Block size19.06.2012 © 2012 ttec computer B.V. / transtec AG 15
  • 16. VMFS-5 vs VMFS-3 Feature comparisonFeature VMFS-3 VMFS-52TB+ VMFS Volumes Yes Yes (using extents)Support for 2TB+ Physical RDMs No YesUnified Block size (1MB) No YesAtomic Test & Set Enhancements No Yes(part of VAAI, locking mechanism)Sub-blocks for space efficiency 64KB (max ~3k) 8KB (max ~30k)Small file support No 1KB19.06.2012 © 2012 ttec computer B.V. / transtec AG 16
  • 17. VMFS-3 to VMFS-5 Upgrade• The Upgrade to VMFS-5 is clearly displayed in the vSphere Client under Configuration -> Storage view.• It is also displayed in the Datastores -> Configuration view.• Non-disruptive upgrades.19.06.2012 © 2010 transtec AG 17
  • 18. VAAI - Introduction• vStorage API for Array Integration = VAAI• VAAI’s main purpose is to leverage array Application capabilities VI-3 • Offloading tasks to reduce overhead Hypervisor • Benefit from enhanced mechanisms arrays Non-VAAI mechanisms Fabric• The “traditional” VAAI primitives have been improved Array VAAI• We have introduced multiple new primitives LUN LUN 01 02• Support for NAS!19.06.2012 © 2010 transtec AG 18
  • 19. Storage vMotion - IntroductionIn vSphere 5.0, a number of new enhancements were made to Storage vMotion.  Storage vMotion will work with Virtual Machines that have snapshots, which means coexistence with other VMware products & features such as VCB, VDR & HBR.  Storage vMotion will support the relocation of linked clones.  Storage vMotion has a new use case – Storage DRS – which use Storage vMotion for Storage Maintenance Mode & Storage Load Balancing (Space or Performance).19.06.2012 © 2012 ttec computer B.V. / transtec AG 19

  • 21. What’s New in vCenter ServerThe vSphere Web Client is tailored to met the needs of VM Administrators in the first release. This includes:  VM Management VM Provisioning Edit VM, VM power ops, Snapshots, Migration VM Resource Management View all vSphere objects (hosts, clusters, datastores, folders, etc)  Basic Health Monitoring  Viewing the VM console remotely  Search through large, complex environments Save search queries, and quickly run them to find detailed information  vApp Management vApp Provisioning, vApp Editing, vApp Power Operations19.06.2012 © 2010 transtec AG 21
