Agenda,[object Object],What is Virtualization ?,[object Object],What is Hypervisor layer?,[object Object],VMware Products Line,[object Object],ESXi and ESX,[object Object],What is vSphere?,[object Object],VMware vCenter,[object Object],Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI),[object Object],vSphere vs. Hyper-V,[object Object]
What is Virtualization ?,[object Object],Virtualization is a proven software technology that is rapidly transforming the IT landscape and fundamentally changing the way that people compute, such as an operating system, a server, a storage device or network resources. ,[object Object]
What is Hypervisor layer ?,[object Object],A hypervisor, also known as a virtual machine manager/monitor (VMM), is computer hardware platform virtualization software that allows several operating systems to share a single hardware host. Each operating system appears to have the host’s processor, memory, and resources to itself. Instead, the hypervisor is controlling the host processor and resources.,[object Object]
Hypervisor Classifications,[object Object],Bare Metal/Native Hypervisors:,[object Object],Software systems that run directly on the host’s software as a hardware control and guest operating system monitor. ,[object Object],A guest operating system thus runs on another level above the hypervisor. This is the classic implementation of virtual machine architectures.,[object Object],Embedded/Host Hypervisors:,[object Object],Software applications that run within a conventional operating system environment. Considering the hypervisor layer being a distinct software layer, guest operating systems thus run at the third level above the hardware,[object Object]
VMware Products Line ,[object Object],Datacenter Platform Group:,[object Object],VMware ESXi - ESXi is essentially vSphere without the extra stuff, just a hypervisor. In addition, it lacks the service console that is included with ESX, which means that you must rely on remote management tools to adequately manage/monitor ESXi servers.,[object Object],[object Object],Desktop Products Group:,[object Object],[object Object]

  • 2.
  • 3.
  • 4.
  • 5.
  • 6.
  • 7. VMware ThinApp - ThinApp is VMware's implementation of Application Virtualization, which allows basic desktops to be provisioned with the appropriate applications after they boot, rather than built into the image.
  • 8. VMware ACE - ACE provides a method of securing an endpoint by delivering a virtual machine "packages" to the end user.
  • 9. VMware Workstation - is a Type-2 hypervisor made to run on workstation versions of Windows and Linux. While more of a lab and niche solution
  • 10.
  • 11.
  • 12. VMware ESXi 4.0 will only install and run on servers with 64-bit x86 CPUs.
  • 13. All AMD Opterons support 64 bit.
  • 14. All Intel Xeon 3000/3200, 3100/3300, 5100/5300, 5200/5400, 7100/7300, and 7200/7400 support 64 bit.
  • 15. All Intel Nehalem (no Xeon brand number assigned yet) support 64 bit.
  • 17. One or more Gigabit or 10Gb Ethernet controllers. For a list of supported network adapter models, see the Hardware Compatibility Guide at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility.
  • 18. Basic SCSI controllers – Adaptec Ultra-160 or Ultra-320, LSI Logic Fusion-MPT, or most NCR/Symbios SCSI.
  • 19. RAID controllers – Dell PERC (Adaptec RAID or LSI MegaRAID), HP Smart Array RAID, or IBM (Adaptec) ServeRAID controllers.
  • 20. SCSI disk or a local (non-network) RAID LUN with unpartitioned space for the virtual machines.
  • 21.
  • 22.
  • 23.
  • 24.
  • 25. Unlocks the power of vSphere through proactive management
  • 26.
  • 27. Inventory search puts the entire vCenter inventory including virtual machines, hosts, datastores, and networks at your fingertips from anywhere within vCenter
  • 28. New hardware monitoring enable alarms when hardware failures of key components such as fans, system board and power supply occur, providing an integrated view of physical and virtual server health.
  • 29. c
  • 30. New storage maps and reportsonvey storage usage, connectivity and configuration. Customizable topology views give you visibility into storage infrastructure and assist in diagnosis and troubleshooting of storage issues.
  • 31. Improved alerts and notifications support new entities, metrics and events such as datastore- and VM-specific alarms. These alarms can trigger new automated workflows to remedy and pre-empt problems. 
  • 32.
  • 33. Improved patch management with a compliance dashboard, baseline groups, a shared patch repository in vCenter Update Manager, which automates scanning and patching of vSphere hosts and virtual machines.
  • 34. New vCenter Server Heartbeat (sold separately) extends availability for vCenter Server, failing over the management server and database over the LAN or WAN to a standby server. vCenter Server Heartbeat has deep awareness of all vCenter Server components and is simple to configure and deploy.
  • 35. Integrated Physical to Virtual (P2V) machine conversion manages multiple simultaneous conversions of physical machines, non-VMware virtual machine formats, and backup images of physical machines into running virtual machines.
  • 36.
  • 37. Linked Mode provides a scalable architecture and visibility across multiple vCenter Server instances, with roles, permissions and licenses replicated across the infrastructure so you can simultaneously log in, view and search the inventories of all vCenter Servers.
  • 38.
  • 39. Dynamic allocation of resources.   VMware DRS continuously monitors utilization across resource pools and intelligently allocates available resources among virtual machines based on pre-defined rules that reflect business needs and changing priorities. The result is a self-managing, highly optimized and efficient IT environment with built-in load balancing.
  • 40.
  • 41. Integration with Microsoft® Active Directory.   Base access controls on existing Microsoft® Active Directory authentication mechanisms.
  • 42. Custom roles and permissions.  Enhance security and flexibility with user-defined roles. VMware vCenter Server users with appropriate privileges can create custom roles such as night shift operator or backup administrator. Restrict access to the entire inventory of virtual machines, resource pools and servers by assigning users to these custom roles.
  • 43. Audit trails.  Maintain a record of significant configuration changes and the administrator who initiated them. Export reports for event tracking.
  • 44.
  • 45. Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows XP Professional, or Windows Server 2003 (Web, Standard, and Enterprise).
  • 46. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express SP2 (for SMB)
  • 47.
  • 48. Memory - 2GB RAM minimum. RAM requirements can be larger if your database is run on the same hardware.
  • 49. Networking - 10/100 Ethernet adapter minimum (Gigabit recommended).
