  31. 31. Oracle VM Server for SPARC Overview Each Logical Domain : •Appears as a fully independent server Apps •Has a unique OS installed and configured Control/ Service •Configurable CPU, disk, memory Service Domain and I/O resources Domain OS • Thin hypervisor delivered with the system • Stable interface with the HW • SPARC / CMT based technology (T-Series servers) Server • Up to 128 domains • Dynamic resource allocation • Isolation via hardware / firmware31
  32. 32. Newly Added Features in 1.3 New Features Description Benefits Policy-based CPU dynamic Maximize CPU utilization within CPU DRM resource management (DRM) a system; distribute resources across virtual machines automatically Enhanced Leverages separate threads for Faster migration for load Domain memory compression and balancing, power saving or Migrations network transfer planned maintenance Dynamic Dynamic addition/removal of Further improve resource Crypto Crypto processing to and from utilization, decrease migration Control active domains time Link-based Track and report physical Faster network failover with link- IPMP network link status based IP multipathing (IPMP) Support support32
  33. 33. Consolidate with Oracle VM Server for SPARC • Consolidate many applications • Isolation allows each domain to have its own patch level • Maximize the use of the Chip Multithread (CMT) architecture • Larger and larger systems are making virtualization an essential tool33
  34. 34. Dynamic Reconfiguration and Virtual Resources AM/Day/Week PM/Night/Weekend • Adjust your systems to your business requirements on demand > Dynamically: CPU & Virtual IO > Delayed Reconfig: Memory • Improve utilization by balancing resources between domains • Virtual network/switch support together with dedicated hardware mapping34
  35. 35. Domain Mobility AM/Day/Week PM/Night/Weekend • Migrate workloads between logical domains without shutting down the application • Keep services running in preparation for planned maintenance • Save and reduce energy costs doing “mini-consolidations” in quiet periods • Be proactive and be able to react to any service degradation35
  36. 36. Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) Conversion• Move applications easily to Oracle VM Server for SPARC> Source: Oracle Solaris 8, 9 or 10> Target: Guest domain running Oracle Solaris 10• Three easy steps with ldmp2v
  37. 37. P2V Tool • ldmp2v upgrades your environment to be an Oracle Solaris 10 guest on Oracle VM Server for SPARC > Step 1: Collect – Creates archive of source system – Collects config info for disk, files and network – Non destructive > Step 2: Prepare – Sets up target guest domain based on source config – Creates and assigns virtual disk, virtual network created and assigned – Restores archives into virtual disks > Step 3: Convert – Boots from Oracle Solaris ISO file or Jumpstart profiles, and then upgrades37
  38. 38. CPU Power Management • Save even more power by automatically powering off unused cores • Two modes: – Performance – All cores turned on at all time (what you have now) – Elastic – Cores are dynamically powered on/off as required by the system • Behavior must be set via the ILOM but can be monitored from LDoms38
  39. 39. Configuration Assistant – Ease of Deployment • Help you easily create logical domains. – After gathering the configuration data, the Configuration Assistant determines the best way to create a deployment to suit your requirements. • The Configuration Assistant is available as both a graphical user interface (GUI) and terminal-based tool.39
