  9. 9. Key SC VMM 2008 Features • P2V and V2V is a core feature of VMM, no additional infrastructure or costs per conversion • Self Service Portal - Administrators control access through policies which designate capabilities • Library is a Repository for all VM building blocks • Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO)
  10. 10. DEMO • SC VMM 2008 R2 Overview
  11. 11. Intelligent Placement • Capacity planning technology ensures best resource utilization • Star rated results for easy decision making • Customizable algorithm to achieve your goals • Applicable to both Microsoft and VMware hosts
  12. 12. Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) • Workload and application aware resource optimization • Extensible through the Operations Manager 2007 MP framework • Create policies that VMM acts upon tips • Minimize downtime • Enables partners to deliver value add
  13. 13. Monitoring • Discovery of Hosts, Virtual Machines and Virtual Machine Manager components • Performance and Health Monitoring, Reports, etc. • Application awareness • Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO)
  14. 14. DEMO • Intelligent Placement
  15. 15. Host Configuration • Wizard based experience for adding hosts • Easy management of Hyper-V host clusters • Management of Windows Server 2008 Failover clusters for Hyper-V
  16. 16. Highly Available VMs in VMM • Simplified creation • Just check a checkbox in “New VM” wizard • Supports HA VM creation on disks without drive letters • Quick Migration • Use the existing “Migrate VM wizard” for quick migration • Intelligent Placement • Star rating for each clustered host (node) • Cluster level reserve • Store to library • Uses HA setting when you re-deploy • Promotion/Demotion • Promote non-HA VM to HA VM by migrating it to a clustered host, and vice versa to “demote” the VM.
  17. 17. Network Diagram View • Single pane of glass network view
  18. 18. Live Migration via VMM • VMM 2008 R2 • Detects if Live migration can be done • Clustering, Shared storage availability • Higher star rating over Quick or SAN migration • Serializes live migration for maintenance mode
  19. 19. Clustered Shared Volumes (CSV) • Enables multiple nodes in a cluster to access a single shared LUN • VMM 2008 R2 • Multiple VMs within a cluster can share a LUN • live migration of individual VMs without affecting other VMs on the LUN
  20. 20. Multiple VMs sharing a LUN VMM 2008 R2 Failover Cluster Clustered Storage Vol. 1 Vol. 2 LUN 1 LUN 2 VHD VHD VHD VHD VHD VHD
  21. 21. Network Related Enhancements • Network Optimization • Win2k8 R2 supports 2 types of network optimizations: VMQ & Chimney • During VM creation: Enable/disable network optimization • If enabled, VMM will configure the VM to use VMQ or Chimney, if available on the host • Placement: Detect and show availability of Network optimization on the host
  22. 22. Network Enhancements VMM has detected that host has NIC that has either VMQ or Chimney capabilities
  23. 23. Hot Add of VM storage • Ability to add/remove storage to running VMs • Reduces downtime and provides flexibility to admins • to add/remove storage as needed • Admin needs to add storage space to VM • Need to stop the VM to do this • With VMM R2 and Win2k8 R2 • Create additional storage and add it to running VM • Admin needs to backup a VM • Can create VSS snapshot of his running OS • Use the new disk as destination of snapshot • Remove the disk from running VM
  24. 24. Maintenance Mode • For servicing a host, VMM R2 allows host to be put in maintenance mode • VMs on that host that are running are live migrated off the host to avoid downtime • Admin can choose to save state VMs if host is not part of a cluster • Placement • Host in maintenance mode gets zero star ratings • Supported for Hyper-V, VS and VMWare hosts
  25. 25. DEMO • Maintenance Mode
  26. 26. Fully Manage + Add Value to VMware • Unified management experience • Hyper-V and VMware • Full virtual machine management • VMotion, Resource Pools, VMware Templates • Network Diagram view and VMware HA VM Support • Enhancing capabilities on VMware VI3 • PRO • Intelligent Placement • Library • Integrated conversion tools • PowerShell automation
  27. 27. Separate Environments Integrated Solution Virtual Machine Manager 2008 Virtual Center 1 Virtual Center 2 VMM 2007 Virtual Center 2 Virtual Center 1
  28. 28. Intelligent Placement for VMware • Workload centric VM creation • Intelligent Placement identifies the ideal host based on workload requirements • Leverages VMM's capacity planning models • VMotion guided by intelligent placement
  29. 29. VMM Scripting Through PowerShell • Microsoft’s command shell for scripting and development • Consistent scripting syntax • Encapsulate platform differences • VMM PowerShell Snap-in • 170+ command-line functions • Foundation for VMM administrator’s console and Self Service Portal • All PowerShell operations are logged and audited
  30. 30. PowerShell Cmdlet Job • Progress • Status • Owner • Affected objects
