      Virtualization of SharePoint Roles
      Virtualization of SQL Server
      Memory Limitations and Guidelines for Guests
      Microsoft Virtualization Software Options
      Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V

    • Why Virtualize?
    • Why Virtualize?
    • SharePoint 2010 Virtualization Guidelines
    • Virtual Host Guidelines
    • SharePoint Guest Guidelines
    • VM Guest Guidelines:SharePoint Roles
    • VM Guest Guidelines:Database Roles
    • SharePoint 2010 Virtualized Farm Architecture
    • Virtualized Farm ArchitectureCost-effective Virtual Environment / No HA
      • Allows organizations that wouldn’t normally be able to have a test environment to run one
      • Allows for separation of the database role onto a dedicated server
      • Can be more easily scaled out in the future
    • Virtualized Farm ArchitectureCost-effective Virtual Environment / No HA
    • Virtualized Farm ArchitectureHighly Available Farm with only Two Servers
      • High-Availability across Hosts
      • All components virtualized
      • Uses only two Windows Ent Edition Licenses
    • Virtualized Farm ArchitectureHighly Available Farm with only Two Servers
    • Virtualized Farm ArchitectureBest Practice Virtual/Physical with HA/Perf
      • Highest transaction servers are physical
      • Multiple farm support, with DBs for all farms on the SQL cluster
    • Virtualized Farm ArchitectureLarge Virtual Farms
    • NUMA Memory Guidelines
    • NUMA Example: 2x Quad Core, 64GB RAM
      Proc 1
      Proc 2
    • NUMA Example: 2x Quad Core, 8GB RAM
      Proc 1
      Proc 2
    • Virtualization Performance Monitoring
    • Virtualization Performance MonitoringPerformance Counters and Thresholds
      Network Bandwidth – Bytes Total/sec
      <40% Utilization = Good
      41%-64% = Caution
      >65% = Trouble
      Network Latency - Output Queue Length
      0 = Good
      1-2= OK
      >2 = Trouble
      Processor (Host Only)
      <60% Utilization = Good
      60%-90% = Caution
      >90% = Trouble
      Available Memory
      50% and above = Good
      10%-50% = OK
      <10% = Trouble
      Disk – Avg. Disk sec/Read or Avg. Disk sec/Write
      Up to 15ms = fine
      15ms-25ms = Caution
      >25ms = Trouble
    • SharePoint Virtualization Support
    • Microsoft Support of SharePoint Virtualization
      Microsoft’s official SharePoint support stance is that any SharePoint role or service is supported for hardware virtualization, including SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, or SQL Server 2008 R2. There are only three requirements for virtualization that must be satisfied, these are as follows:
      Hardware-assisted virtualization, which is available in processors that include a virtualization option—specifically processors with Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) technology.
      Hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is available and enabled.
      Either deployed on Microsoft Hyper-V (RTM or R2 version) or a validated third-party hypervisor that is part of the Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP) – KB 897615
    • What does this mean for SharePoint on Third party?
      SharePoint supported on VMware ESX/ESXi, Citrix XenServer, or others in the SVVP
      This only covers Hypervisor products, so excludes products such as VMware Workstation or VMWare Server
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V
    • Hyper-V R2 for SP2010Overview
    • System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2
    • System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008
      New version out (VMM 2008 R2)
      VMM 2008 R2 has P2V (Physical to virtual migration) and V2V (VMware Guest migration to Hyper-V) tools
      For SharePoint, allows for creation of SharePoint template servers that can be quickly provisioned for test farms or for new farm members in production
      Can manage both Hyper-V and VMware guests (though must ‘go through’ a Virtual Center server to manage VMware guests.)
      Self-Service Portal allows end users and remote admins to be able to provision their own virtual machines based on templates
    • Quick SP2010 Farm Provisioning with VMM 2008 R2
      Create new Virtual Guest (Windows Server 2008 R2)
      Install SP2010 Binaries. Stop before running Config Wizard
      Turn Virtual Guest into Template, modify template to allow it to be added into domain
      Add PowerShell script to run on first login, allowing SP to be added into farm or to create new farm
      Voila! 15 minute entire farm provisioning…

    • Virtualization Licensing
      $ £ ¥ €
    • Virtualized Farm ArchitectureMicrosoft Virtualization Licensing Primer
      Windows Server Virtualization Licensing
      Standard Edition: One virtual guest (if host is dedicated to virtualization role)
      Enterprise Edition: Four virtual guests (if host is dedicated to virtualization role) / Guests can be Std/Ent
      DataCenter Edition: Unlimited Number of Virtual Guests / Per processor socket license
      Virtualization OS licensing applies to Hyper-V or any virtual host software listed in SVVP (KB 897615)
      System Center Virtualization Licensing
      System Center Management Suite Standard Edition License: Gives DPM, OpsMgr, ConfigMgr, and VMM Agents for 1 server.
      System Center Management Suite Enterprise Edition License: Gives unlimited DPM, OpsMgr, ConfigMgr, and VMM Agents for all virtual guests on the host.
      Check with Microsoft for Specifics…
    • Microsoft Virtualization Guest Licensing Model
      Guests can run any combination of downlevel licenses (i.e. Datacenter host, Ent or Std edition guests)
      Applies not only to OSes running virtualized with Windows Virtualization, but it also applies to 3rd party virtualization as well!
    • Session Takeaways
      Understand the architecture options for SharePoint 2010
      Consider Virtualization for SharePoint, but architect host and guest environments very carefully.
      Best performance comes from dedicated virtual hosts, dedicated passthrough NICs, and dedicated passthrough disks and by not overcommitting resources.
      KB897615 outlines MS Support for 3rd Party Virtualization such as VMware and XenServer…
      Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V technology gives high performance and is a very cost competitive option
      MS Licensing has new virtualization support, and Datacenter edition will provide for unlimited guests under a single host.
