VMware vCloud Director

  1. 1. vCloud Director http://clean-clouds.com
  2. 2. Vmware Private Cloud• Building blocks (VMware vSphere, SAN and networking) within a vCD environment are often referred to as “resource groups”.• To run a VMware vCloud environment, the minimum components to run are: • VMware vCloud Director (vCD) • VMware vShield Manager • VMware Chargeback • VMware vCenter (supporting the Resource groups) • vSphere infrastructure • Supporting infrastructure elements (Networking, SAN) Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  3. 3. VMware vCloud Director• VMware vCloud Director enables you to build private and hybrid clouds that are compatible with VMware public clouds.• New abstraction layer• A layer on top of vCenter and abstracts all the resources vCenter manages.• Adds a self service portal• On top of vCenter/ESX(i)• VMware vCloud Director integrates with your existing vSphere deployment and supports existing and future applications by providing elastic storage and networking via existing interfaces.

  5. 5. • Utilizing open standards preserves deployment flexibility and paves the way to the hybrid cloud when you want to move in that direction.• Using VMware vCloud Director and the VMware vCloud API, you can extend your datacenter’s capacity into secure and compatible VMware-based public clouds and manage it as easily as your private cloud.

  9. 9. VMware vCloud Director Cluster• Formed by multiple vCD servers or as we refer them to “cells”• The cells form vCD and are responsible for the abstraction of the resources and the portal amongst other features Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  10. 10. vCD• vCD abstracts resources which are managed by vCenter. There are currently three types of resources that can be used by a tenant. 1. Compute - clusters and resource pools 2. Network - dvSwitches and/or portgroups 3. Storage - VMFS datastores and NFS shares• These resources will be offered through a self-service portal which is part of vCD. Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  11. 11. vCD• As a vCD Administrator you can use the vCD portal to carve up these resources as required and assign these to a customer or department, often referred to in vCD as an “Organization”.• vCD is not purely designed for Service Providers, vCD is also designed for Enterprise environments.• In order to carve up these resources a container will need to be created and this is what we call a Virtual Datacenter. Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  12. 12. Virtual Datacenter• There are two different types of Virtual Datacenter’s: – Provider Virtual Datacenter (Provider vDC) – Organization Virtual Datacenter (Org vDC)• VMware vCloud Director lets you deliver resources to internal organizations as virtual datacenters. Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  13. 13. Provider Virtual Datacenter• Foundation for Compute Resources• To create Provider Virtual Datacenter you will need to select a resource pool• Need to associate a set of datastores with the Provider vDC• Provider vDC as the object where you specify the SLA• After you have created a Provider vDC you can create an Org vDC and tie that Org vDC to a vCD Organization.• Organization can have multiple Org vDCs associated to it. Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  14. 14. vDC Source: VMware
  15. 15. Organization Virtual Datacenter (Org vDC)• Create vApps, and a vApp is just a logical container for 1 or more virtual machines.• This vApp could for instance contain a three tiered app which has an internal network and a firewalled outbound connection for a single VM, which would look something like this: Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  16. 16. vShield security technologies• Perimeter protection, port-level firewall, and NAT and DHCP services• Offer virtualization-aware security, simplify application deployment and enforce boundaries required by compliance standards.• Upgrading to the full vShield Edge suite adds advanced services such as site-to-site VPN, network isolation, and web load balancing. Researcher’s Blog - http://clean-clouds.com
  17. 17. To summarize,• vCD offers a self service portal.• This portal enables you – to provision resources to a tenant and – enables the tenant to consume these resources by creating vApps. • vApps are a container for one or multiple virtual machines and can contain isolated networks.
