VMworld 2013: Symantec’s Real-World Experience with a VMware Software-Defined Data Center

  1. 1. Symantec’s Real-World Experience with a VMware Software-Defined Data Center Jeremiah Cornelius, VMware Jason Puig, Symantec OPT5697 #OPT5697
  2. 2. Summary – Today’s Session • Symantec Granite Labs is a large scale implementation of a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) – Based on VMware and Symantec technologies – 250,000 VMs deployed, 27,000 under management today with 3,800 users – 15-month implementation – Have saved 32,000 Symantec IT staff hours – While delivering better quality to end-users, in less time • Are Symantec’s experiences applicable to your company? – Why did SDDC make sense? – What did they implement? – What were the results and lessons learned?
  3. 3. Agenda Why a Cloud Lab in an SDDC? Cloud Based Labs: The ultimate challenge Demo Metrics / Lessons Q&A IT Drivers and the Software-Defined Data Center
  4. 4. IT Pressures – a Constant Over the Decades “Are you getting the maximum efficiency out of your infrastructure?” “How quickly can IT respond to LOB requests?” • Legislative Compliance • Risk Reduction – SLAs & Business Continuity • Security – Corp Assets & IP

  11. 11. Why a Cloud Lab in an SDDC? • Cost – Single shared pool of networking, storage, and compute resources. – Reduced administration – Reduced integration costs • Agility – Data Centers available in minutes instead of days or weeks. – Abstraction of hardware at all layers allows flexibility and reduced downtime. – Faster turn around when implementing new solutions – Reduce provisioning effort allowing employees to focus on their primary job - helping customers. – Removing the burden of managing labs from engineers and trainers. – Helps to break down barriers between departments and reduces silos • Governance – Secured within the Symantec Firewall / Private Enterprise Cloud – Complete oversight into the datacenter topologies allow for improved control.

  13. 13. Cloud Based Labs: The ultimate challenge. • Legacy Labs • Lab Complexity • Dynamic Workloads • “Hands On” / Self Service Required • Scale • Security / Protection • Multiple Geographies • Virtual on Virtual • Hybrid Physical and Virtual Provisioning • Cost
  14. 14. What we Deployed • vCloud Suite – vCloud Director – vSphere – vCNS – vCenter Orchestrator • NetBackup • Endpoint Protection • IT Management Suite – Deployment Solution – Asset Management Suite – Service Desk • Application HA • 7xxx Core Switching • UCS Blades • FAS6240 • FAS6280
  15. 15. Demo
  16. 16. Metrics / Lessons Learned • Cost – Single shared pool of networking, storage, and compute resources. • Explosive adoption, over 3,800 employees have used the solution since launch. Average over 2,000 active users every month. • Over 250,000 virtual machines deployed since launch. • Over 27,000 virtual machines under management • Unified library of over 700 lab topologies within our Software Defined Data Center – Reduced administration • While fewer admins are needed, they need to be cross functional and understand the latest virtualization trends. • Choosing the right vendors who understand cloud – Reduced integration costs • Cloud integration is complex, use as many integrated solutions as you can which are proven to work together. Symantec is seeing the savings in the ability to leverage integrations across the cloud.
  17. 17. • Agility – Software Defined Data Centers available in minutes instead of weeks or months • Average Provisioning Time: 14 Minutes, completely changes the way employees work. – Abstraction of hardware at all layers allows flexibility and reduced downtime. • Multiple hardware transitions since inception, zero user impact. • Orchestration is a must – Faster turn around when implementing new solutions • Our entire cloud topology is actually stored in an SDDC vApp inside of the cloud, allowing for on the fly testing of new solutions even with the cloud itself. – Reduce provisioning effort allowing employees to refocus their actual jobs - helping customers. • Saved over 11,000 weeks of effort – Removing the burden of managing labs from engineers and trainers. • Transitioned to Cloud Operations – Helps to break down barriers between departments and reduces silos • Over 700 shared labs covering most Symantec product lines currently available • Support Services, Training, and Engineering are finally able to share… everything. Metrics / Lessons Learned
  18. 18. • Governance – Secured within the Symantec Firewall / Private Enterprise Cloud – Complete oversight into the datacenter topologies allow for improved control. • Auditing of topologies to reduce human error. • Ensure proper security is in place prior to allowing deployment. Metrics / Lessons Learned
  19. 19. Future • Unparalleled Cloud Integration with Symantec Products • Incorporate enhancements to virtual networking (Nicera) • Reference Architectures Visit the VMware and Symantec booths. Talk to us about how we can help your organization get to IT-as-a- Service, and a Software-Defined Data Center
