Online Support Virtualisation Webinar Online Support Virtualisation Webinar Presentation Transcript

  • Virtualisation Webinarwww.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • House Keeping Type your question here Send question to uswww.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Presenters Charlie Wetherall Sales Director, Online Support Tim Page Technical Director, Online Supportwww.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • What You Will Learn Today 1. What does Virtualisation really mean? 2. What are the benefits of Virtualisation? 3. Implementing Virtualisation solutions. 4. Live Demo - Microsoft Hyper-V in High Availability.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Implementing Virtualisation  Brief introduction to Online Support.  Background to Virtualisation.  How can Virtualisation benefit your business?  Tips on implementing Virtualisation solutions that don’t cost the earth.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Who Are We?  IT Solutions and Managed Services company.  Based in West London.  Established in 2002.  Since then we have developed an expertise in Virtualisation solutions.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Did You Know?  “Enterprises that do not leverage Virtualisation technologies will spend 25% more annually for hardware, software, labour and space for servers”. (Gartner)  “The average Virtualisation rate is moving from 20-40% today to 60-80% by 2015”. (Gartner)  85-90% of the machine’s power is unused.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • What Is Virtualisation? Before Virtualisation Basic Virtualisation Applications Operating System Virtualisation Layer A physical computer A physical computer can host a equates to a single server number of servers and workstations. or workstation.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Benefits Of Virtualisation  Efficiency and cost reduction - Reduce hardware cost. - Reduce power consumption and cooling.  Flexibility - Easy to increase resources to a virtual server if and when required.  Improves Application Reliability - Becomes cost effective to have multiple servers, each dedicated to a specific application (reduces risk of conflict between applications).  Simplifies Server Replacement and Disaster Recovery - Virtual servers are hardware independent.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Virtualisation In High Availability Mode Application Application Application Application Application Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Operating Operating Operating Operating Operating System System System System System Virtualisation Layer  Multiple physical computers in a cluster.  Improves reliability.  Capital cost can be very expensive.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Physical Hardware For High Availability Application Application Application Application Application Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Operating Operating Operating Operating Operating System System System System System Virtualisation Layer Bare essentials should consist of 3 physical devices:  2 Physical Computers.  1 Storage Device.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Physical Hardware For High Availability Application Application Application Application Application Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Operating Operating Operating Operating Operating System System System System System Virtualisation Layer Bare essentials should consist of 3 physical devices:  2 Physical Computers.  1 Storage Device.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • What Does A Storage Device Consist Of? Array of Hard Drives  Array of hard drives to store your virtual servers’ images.  These drives should be in some form of RAID array for redundancy.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • What Does A Storage Device Consist Of? Storage Processor Array of Hard Drives  Storage processor to act as an interface between the physical computers and the hard drives.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • What Does A Storage Device Consist Of? Storage Processor Array of Hard Drives Storage Processor  Storage processor to act as an interface between the physical computers and the hard drives.  For redundancy there should be 2 storage processors.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Connectivity Between Your Storage Device And Physical Servers Storage Processor Array of Hard Drives Storage Processorwww.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Connectivity Between Your Storage Device And Physical Servers iSCSI Switch Storage Processor Array of Hard Drives Storage Processor iSCSI Switch  Each Storage Processor is connected to an iSCSI switch.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Connectivity Between Your Storage Device And Physical Servers iSCSI Switch Storage Processor Array of Hard Drives Storage Processor iSCSI Switch  Each Storage Processor is connected to an iSCSI switch.  These in turn are connected to both Physical Computers.  This provides a highly redundant set up with no single point of failure.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • DAS Or SAN Storage Device ? Storage Processor Array of Hard Drives Storage Processor  Look at using a form of storage device called a DAS (Direct Attached Storage) device - much cheaper than SANs.  Directly attaches to the physical computers so removes the requirement to purchase iSCSI switches .  Can still be supplied with dual storage processors which can be connected to up to 4 physical computers in high availability mode (some models only).www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • VMware Or Hyper-V? Application Application Application Application Application Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Operating Operating Operating Operating Operating System System System System System Virtualisation Layerwww.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • VMware Or Hyper-V? Application Application Application Application Application Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Operating Operating Operating Operating Operating System System System System System Virtualisation Layer  VMware more suitable for very large implementations.  Hyper-V more than adequate for the SME market.  Hyper-V is free and no annual support fee.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • How To Save Costs - Summary Application Application Application Application Application Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Virtual Operating Operating Operating Operating Operating System System System System System Virtualisation Layer  Purchase a DAS and not a SAN storage device.  No need to purchase iSCSI switches.  Use Hyper-V over VMware.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • What Can We Offer You?  Consultancy and advice in designing a Virtual platform suitable for your requirements and your budget.  Engineering expertise to assist in implementing your Virtual solution - we can work alongside your engineers to assist in the implementation and to provide your engineers with valuable hands on experience and training.  Pro-active monitoring of your Virtual platform once implemented.  Off-site Disaster Recovery and Data Backup.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Demonstration Microsoft Hyper-V in High Availabilitywww.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • What Will The Demo Cover?  How traditional hardware resources are provisioned in a virtual environment: - Processor - Hard Disk - Memory  Failover clustering - What does shared storage and multi-node mean? - Demo a machine failing over from one node to another.  Before we start, let’s use an analogy to get your head around Virtualisation.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
  • Demonstration Summary  Virtualisation is moving from being bound by the physical constraints of the hardware to having access to a much larger pool of resources across 1 or multiple hosts in a cluster.  Your servers become images on a hard drive instead of physical pieces of tin; so they are infinitely easier to manage, transport, upgrade and restore.  Even if you only have 1 server it is worth virtualising it when you upgrade, for the following reasons: – MS HV is free – it doesn’t cost you any more to virtualise compared to replacing the tin. – You are future proofing your infrastructure by making it far more flexible to accommodate future demands e.g. adding an additional server.www.onlinesupport.co.uk
