  6. 6. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Operating System Application Application Application What is Virtualization?  Traditionally the OS and its applications were tightly coupled to the hardware they were installed on  Virtualization decouples the operating system from physical hardware  This allows the ability to change hardware without replacing the OS or applications  Additionally, multiple instances of an OS with independent applications can now run on the same hardware Hypervisor
  7. 7. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The Power of the Hypervisor  A Hypervisor -  Thin layer of code  Enables multiple operating systems to share a single hardware host.  A Hypervisor  Controls host CPU, storage, RAM and IO  Allocates what is needed to each guest operating system  Ensures that guest operating systems (called Virtual Machines) have access to their required resources.  Guarantees that the Virtual Machines operate independently.  The VMware Hypervisor [vSphere, ESXi]  Is purpose-built Operating System  Enables the Operating System within the virtual machine to run unmodified  The Guest OS behaves as if it is running on physical hardware.
  8. 8. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Types Hypervisors  Traditional – 1:1 coupling of an OS and Hardware.  Type I Hypervisor – installs directly on the hardware - “Bare metal” [vSphere].  Type II Hypervisor – Installs on top of an Operating System. [Workstation, Player, Fusion].

  10. 10. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. What is a Virtual Machine?  A virtual machine is a software computer that runs an operating system and applications.  Virtual machines consist of a set of specification and configuration files supported by the physical resources of a host. [VMX, VMDK, NVRAM setting file, and the log file.]  Every VM has virtual devices that provide the same functionality as physical hardware plus additional benefits in terms of portability, manageability, and security.  VMs are created and configured using the vSphere platform.
  11. 11. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. VMware Inherent Characteristics of Virtual Machines Encapsulation  Entire state of the virtual machine can be saved to files  Move and copy virtual machines as easily as files Partitioning  Run multiple operating systems on one physical machine  Divide system resources between virtual machines Isolation  Fault and security isolation at the hardware level  Advanced resource controls preserve performance Hardware Independence  Provision or migrate any virtual machine to any similar or different physical server
  12. 12. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Virtual Hardware VMware has created virtual devices that emulate a chipset: • BIOS • Memory • Network Adapter [vNIC] • Storage Adapter • USB, etc. These virtual devices, collectively know as Virtual Hardware: • Implemented in software • Identical in functionality as their physical counterparts—for example, the behavior of the virtual Intel network adapter is identical to that of the equivalent physical Intel network adapter. The guest operating system interacts with the hypervisor’s abstraction layer of virtual hardware and not the physical hardware.
  13. 13. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Virtual Hardware Lifecycle  Deploying IT Solutions in a virtual machine  Tie your application and VM to specific vHW version  Enables that solution to remain stable for the duration of the vHW’s lifecycle.  Upgrade the underlying ESX release and physical hardware  vHW version 8 has a supported lifecycle of +14 years. Virtual Hardware Version First ESX version to support virtual hardware version Last ESX version to support virtual hardware version ESX Version Release date ESX Version End of Support End of Technical Guidance 3 ESX 2.0 07/21/2003 ESX 4.0 5/21/2014 5/21/2016 4 ESX 3.0 06/15/2006 ESX 5.0 8/24/2016 8/24/2018 7 ESX 4.0 05/21/2009 ESX 5.0 8/24/2016 8/24/2018 10 ESX 5.5 09/19/2013 ESX x.x 8/24/2016 9/19/2020
