VDCF Overview

  1. 1. 1 Virtual Datacenter Management using the Virtual Datacenter Cloud Framework (VDCF) Marcel Hofstetter hofstetter@jomasoft.ch https://jomasoftmarcel.blogspot.ch CEO / Enterprise Consultant JomaSoft GmbH Oracle ACE „Solaris“
  2. 2. 2 About JomaSoft Engineering company founded July 2000 specialized in Solaris, software development/integration and consulting Product VDCF (Virtual Datacenter Cloud Framework) Installation, Management, Monitoring, Security and DR on Solaris 10/11, Virtualize using LDoms and Solaris Zonen VDCF is used in Production since 2006
  3. 3. 3 VDCF – Virtual Datacenter Cloud Framework Management Tool for BareMetal, LDoms and Zones Installation, Operation, Migration, Monitoring, Failover and Security Supports Solaris 10 + 11 on SPARC/x86 In productive use since 2006 Centrally installed using the lightweight, serverless database SQLite Dynamic Virtualization Live / Cold Migration and Failover Resource Configuration and Monitoring Agility for your Enterprise Private Cloud
  4. 4. 4 VDCF - Goals Central view and control of the virtual data center Standardization: uniform System configuration As easy as possible for the System administrator Consistent interfaces for admins (Solaris 10 and 11) Avoid mistakes: Fully automated Installation & Migration Flexible: Hardware can be mixed, VDCF adapts the configuration when migrating Reduce Complexity: Layer above Solaris / Hide the details „Best Practices“ are integrated ongonig into the product Cheap and easy solution for failover and DR
  5. 5. 5 Datacenter Architecture
  6. 6. 6 Dynamic Virtualization
  7. 7. 7 Solaris Versions
  8. 8. 8 VDCF - Components
  9. 9. 9 VDCF Base - Features CLI and Web Dashboard Builds Create and manage your Solaris Installation Environments Based on Solaris JumpStart/Flash Archives and AI / Unified Archives Node System/Device/Disk Discovery Install Nodes using Solaris WANBOOT & Flash Archives or AI Configure Solaris Global Zone DNS, NTP, SMF Services, ROUTES System Customization / Basic Software Installations Packages, Commands, Scripts, File-Copy Operations Boot / Reboot / Shutdown
  10. 10. 10 VDCF LDom - Features Configuration Define Resource Limits (RAM, CPU, MAU) Disk and Network Interface Management (adddisk, addnet, remnet, remdisk) Configure Guest Domains DNS, NTP, SMF Services, ROUTES System Customization / Basic Software Installations Packages, Commands, Scripts, File-Copy Import existing LDoms Operation Install / Remove Guest Domains Boot / Reboot / Shutdown Migrate Guest Domains
  11. 11. 11 VDCF vServer - Features Configuration Dataset Management (Volumes) - SVM,ZFS,Veritas Filesystem and Network Interface Management (addfs, addnet, growfs, remnet, remfs, clonefs) Configure Solaris Zone DNS, SMF Services, ROUTES System Customization / Basic Software Installations Packages, Commands, Scripts, File-Copy Import existing Zones Operation Install/Uninstall vServer Boot / Reboot / Shutdown Migrate one or multiple vServers
  12. 12. 12 VDCF – Enterprise Features Datasets & Disks Veritas Dataset & Filesystem Management Cluster Support Integrates vServers and LDoms into Oracle Solaris Cluster for Failover Resource Management Configure / limit Resource Usage of vServers Monitoring Hardware Monitoring and Alarming based on System Controller Resource Monitoring (CPU/RAM Usage) HA – Automated vServer Failover OS Monitoring (Filesystem, Dataset, SMF Services, SWAP, Disk Paths) Security Compliance and Hardening
  13. 13. 13 VDCF – High Availability Different levels of High Availability / Failover Manual Failover Administrator using VDCF vserver/gdom commands HA – Automated Failover VDCF hamon automatically switches vServers if a Node fails Cluster Support vServer/LDoms are integrated into Oracle Solaris Cluster configuration Monitoring and Failover is managed by the Cluster Software
  14. 14. 14 VDCF – High Availability

  16. 16. 16 VDCF – OS Monitoring
  17. 17. 17 VDCF - Usage sample (1/3) Node Install node -c enable_install name=computeA build=s11_3_24 node -c install name=computeA Guest Domain Definition gdom -c create name=mydom cores=2 ram=8g cdom=myT81 vServer Operations vserver -c addfs name=server1 mountpoint=/export dataset=server1_data type=data size=2g vserver -c commit name=server1 exec vServer Migrate vserver -c migrate name=server1 node=computeB shutdown
  18. 18. 18 VDCF - Usage sample (2/3) Where can I migrate my vServer (Zone) to? -bash-4.1$ vserver -c show name=v0137 candidates vServer Node cPool Patch-Level Comment v0137 g0058 default 3.19.0.5.0 (U3.SRU19) Demo Zone1 Potential Nodes is candidate Disk access Net access Packages g0054 (U3.SRU20) YES [upgrade] ok ok nok g0081 (U3.SRU24) YES [upgrade] ok ok nok s0024 (U3.SRU19) YES ok ok ok
  19. 19. 19 VDCF - Usage sample (3/3) Is my environment consistent? -bash-4.1$ cpool -c check name=default ERROR: ComputePool default (Default ComputePool) is not consistent: Disks not registered on Node <g0043>: 6001438012599B620001100001D30000 6001438012599B62000110000F040000 Systems with identical Package-Level / Kernel: 3.19.0.5.0 (U3.SRU19) Nodes: g0058 s0024 Systems with identical Package-Level / Kernel: 3.20.0.5.0 (U3.SRU20) Nodes: g0054 Systems with identical Package-Level / Kernel: 3.24.0.4.0 (U3.SRU24) Nodes: g0055 g0081 g0043 Network type BACKUP missing for Nodes: g0043
  20. 20. 20 VDCF - main benefits Simplicity Deploy and manage Virtual Solaris Environments without a deep Solaris knowledge using only a handful of intuitive VDCF commands Standardization Zones and LDoms are deployed using supported Solaris technologies, managed in a standard way and able to be deployed and available for use in minutes rather than hours. Availability / Recovery VDCF allows manual or automatic control of server migration or fail- over leading to improved options in availability, disaster recovery and performance.
