  6. 6. Virtualizing the Desktop — Sun™ Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Software Your Desktop Anywhere My desktop My desktop My Desktop on a My desktop My desktop on a PC on a MAC Sun Ray™ client on a laptop on a phone As you move between devices, your desktop follows you 6
  7. 7. Thin Clients are Green Clients Replace PCs with Sun Ray Thin Clients to Slash Energy Costs 150 watts 24% 23% 55% 36% decrease Less vs. power less less in CO2 noise 4 watts reduction electronics plastic emissions 7
  8. 8. Server Virtualization with different layers Multiple OS Single OS Hard Partitions Virtual Machines OS Virtualization Resource Mgmt. App Database Identity File Web Mail Calendar Database Web SunRay Database App App Server Server Server Server Server Server Server Server Server OS Server Very High RAS Ability to live migrate an Very scalable and low Very scalable and low OS overhead overhead Very Scalable Ability to run different OS Single OS to manage Single OS to manage Mature Technology versions and types Cleanly divides system Fine grained resource Ability to run different OS De-couples OS and HW and application management versions versions administration Fine grained resource management Isolation Flexibility 8

App Database Identity Server Server File Server Web Server Mail Server Calendar Database Web Server Server SunRay Database App Server Server App OS Server Dynamic System Domains Logical Domains Solaris Containers Solaris ResourceManager Xen Solaris Trusted Extensions VMware Microsoft Virtual Server Solaris Containers for Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 All available on Sun 9
  10. 10. Virtualization technologies on Sun platforms full SW-Stack Virtual Machines OS Virtualization minimal overhead tied to application (CPU & memory) (OS, MW, Application) File Web Mail Calendar Database Web Server Server Server Server Server implementation using just 1:1 mapping of Solaris features is possible existing system (additional tools are not a must) landscape possible small administration overhead only minor changes tight integration into to operational Sun Cluster procedures (monitoring & SW clear separation of roles (platform lifecycle-mgmt / patching) vs. application mgmt.) Live Migration conceptually possible Only one patch level for kernel significant overhead (CPU, Memory, Network) conceptually 'Live-migration' is not possible highest administration efforts A few applications can not be run within zones (guests AND hypervisor require maintenance) (for SAP software this is not really an issue) high license- and maintenance-cost (virtualization-SW & guest OS) Different virtualization technologies on different layers do make sense ! They address different requirements. 10
  11. 11. OS Virtualization OS Virtualization Solaris Containers deliver orders of magnitude more flexibility — Up to 8000 containers per OS Calendar Server Database Web Server Containers plus ZFSTM file system provide greater agility and faster adoption of SAP solutions Support on SPARC ®, UltraSPARC, and x64 systems (see saponsolaris.com) Low to no overhead — benchmark at less than 2% Containers are free! 11
  12. 12. Don't Give Up Performance SAP SD measurement on Solaris Containers 2-tier SAP SD Benchmark 1 Benchmark on T2000 yields 4780 SAPS 4 Benchmarks on T2000 with 4 containers 1170 SAPS 1180 SAPS 1180 SAPS 1170 SAPS Date of Certification SAPS Certification Number Total: 4700 SAPS 05/29/06 05/29/06 1170 1180 2006029 2006030 Performance 98.3% 05/29/06 05/29/06 1180 1170 2006031 2006032 12/06/05 4780 2005047 12

  17. 17. Third Architectural Decision Mixing Jack and Coke? - Good Mixing production and non-production? - Not good No mixing of production and non-production environments 17
  18. 18. Guidelines for Virtualization • Start first with Development and Training systems > NOW! • Choose the right virtualization technology for your landscape • Check the support plan(s) > Not all applications support virtualization > More complex service contracts Hardware – Virtualization Software – Operating System • You need virtualization management 18
