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

  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.
