DeltaV Development Systems in a Virtualized Environment

  1. 1. DeltaV Development Systems in a Virtualized Environment Scott Thompson – Systems Consultant
  2. 2. Presenters  Scott Thompson
  3. 3. Introduction  Challenges in supporting multiple DeltaV revisions  Virtualization Overview  Our Solution  Benefits  Your Benefits
  4. 4. Challenges in Supporting Multiple Systems  Support many different customer systems – Currently have ~80 Customer DeltaV databases loaded – ~10 Envox NT/Control Desktop databases  Support many different DeltaV revisions – 16 different DeltaV versions – 5 different Windows versions (including service packs) – 2+ v11.3 systems in development (two more Windows Versions)  Robustness – How fast can the system be recovered if something breaks
  5. 5. Virtualization Overview
  6. 6. Virtualization Overview
  7. 7. Virtualization Overview
  8. 8. Virtualization Overview
  9. 9. Why Virtualize?  Why would I want to virtualize? – I need all the CPU I can get – I need all the RAM I can get
  10. 10. Why Virtualize?  Why would I want to virtualize? – I need all the CPU I can get – I need all the RAM I can get – Most computers spend most of their time waiting on the user – Processor power always increasing – RAM is relatively cheap – Applications are slowly becoming more efficient
  11. 11. Why Virtualize?
  12. 12. Why Virtualize?  PowerEdge R710 – Current shipping DeltaV server June 2010 • Maximum RAM – 144 GB • Maximum CPU – dual six core Xeon X5680
  13. 13. Why Virtualize?  PowerEdge R710 – Current shipping DeltaV server June 2010 • Maximum RAM – 144 GB • Maximum CPU – dual six core Xeon X5680 • Maximum 12 CPUs @ 3.33 GHz = 39.96 GHz CPU power
  14. 14. Why Virtualize?  PowerEdge R710 – Current shipping DeltaV server June 2010 • Maximum RAM – 144 GB • Maximum CPU – dual six core Xeon X5680 • Maximum 12 CPUs @ 3.33 GHz = 39.96 GHz CPU power • = 99.9 1999 DeltaV Pro+ computers
  15. 15. Why Virtualize?  PowerEdge R710 – Current shipping DeltaV server June 2010 • Maximum RAM – 144 GB • Maximum CPU – dual six core Xeon X5680 • Maximum 12 CPUs @ 3.33 GHz = 39.96 GHz CPU power • = 99.9 1999 DeltaV Pro+ computers – Shipping configuration • 4 GB RAM • Dual quad core Xeon E5530 • 8 CPUs @ 2.4 GHz = 19.2 GHz • = 48 1999 DeltaV Pro+ computers
  16. 16. Why Virtualize?
  17. 17. Why Virtualize?
  18. 18. Challenges  Would DeltaV work on a virtual computer?  How stable will it be?  ESX and ESXi don’t support USB devices, how do I get the USB DeltaV Dongle connected?  How do I best save the system already running on the hardware I’m re-using?
  19. 19. Challenges
  20. 20. Challenges
  21. 21. Challenges
  22. 22. REM Development Network  73 Servers (real and virtual) – 16 physical stand-alone servers (application dedicated) – 5 VMWare Servers (running on Server 2003) • 17 virtual machines – 4 ESXi v4.x machines • 31 virtual machines – 21 Pro+ (600 DST – 12,000 DST) – 2 Batch Executives (for ~12,000 DST systems each) – 2 Batch Historians – Iconics Server – Mimic Server – Thin Manager Server – Syncade Server – Control Desktop Server (Windows NT 4) – Virtual CIOC
  23. 23. REM Development Network  Used existing hardware  Upgraded RAM for three ESXi servers  Additional hardware cost to add 19 virtual machines was ~$340.
  24. 24. REM Development Network  19 licenses for Server 2003/Server 2008 – $14,440 – If buying physical machine, cost is buried in hardware cost  VMWare ESXi – $0  Windows TS CALS – $0 (pre-existing)  USB Over Network – $600 for 8 USB devices
  25. 25. REM Development Network
  26. 26. REM Benefits  Reduced hardware footprint – 3 vs. 19  Reduced power usage – 750W vs. 4750W  Reduced A/C load – 8,091 BTU/hr vs. 51,243 BTU/hr – < 1 ton vs. 5 ton  Increased flexibility – Computers that support NT hard to find  Decreased setup time for new system – Can have a new virtual computer on-line < 1hr.
  27. 27. REM Benefits  Lower testing risk – Take snapshots before installing something untested or installing updates – Easily revert to the snapshot if something doesn’t work correctly
  28. 28.
