VMready Virtual Machine-aware Networking for HP


Published on

A unique solution for HP BladeSystem that enables the network to be Virtual Machine aware. The network can be configured and managed for 1000s of virtual ports (v-ports), rather than just physical ports.

With VMready, as VMs migrate across physical hosts, so do their network attributes. Virtual machines can be added, moved and removed while retaining the same ACLs, QoS and VLAN attributes. VMready allows for a ‘define once, use many’ configuration that evolves as the server and network topologies evolve.

VMready works with all virtualization products, including VMware, Microsoft’s Hyper-V, Xen and KVM, without modification of Virtual Machine Hypervisors or Guest operating systems.

VMready Virtual Machine-aware Networking for HP

  1. 1. VMready™ product update for BLADEOS 6.1<br />BLADE Network Technologies | Confidential<br />
  2. 2. Overview of Server Virtualization<br />2<br />
  3. 3. 2/2/2010<br />BLADE Network Technologies Confidential<br />3<br />What is Virtualization ?<br /><ul><li>Server Virtualization provides the abstraction of physical servers to enable sharing of resources such as CPU, Disk, Memory and I/O to multiple guest Virtual Machines
  4. 4. Virtualization increases the utilization and efficiency of Data Center resources by running applications on less hardware
  5. 5. Saves Purchase cost
  6. 6. Saves Energy cost
  7. 7. Virtual Machines can be moved between physical servers for improved availability, maintenance and provisioning</li></ul>Virtual <br />Machine<br />Virtual <br />Machine<br />Virtual <br />Machine<br />Hypervisor<br />Physical Server<br />
  8. 8. Current Virtualization market players<br />VMware™ <br />VMware is the current market leader in server virtualization. Their flagship product vSphere provides the infrastructure and management solutions for large enterprise level virtual environments<br />Xen <br />Xen is an open-source hypervisor that is available for Linux and Solaris operating systems. Citrix XenServer™ is a commercial and fully supported Xen hypervisor <br />Microsoft <br />Microsoft’s Hyper-V™ (hypervisor) product runs on Windows 2008 Server™ and is provided with the server software. It supports Microsoft guest virtual machines and some non-Microsoft [Linux] guest operating systems. <br />KVM <br />Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is a hypervisor that is rapidly gaining interest. KVM is part of the Linux kernel since 2.6.20 and provides native virtualization on Intel VT and AMD-V CPUs <br />Oracle VM <br />Oracle VM is a Xen based hypervisor that is fully supported by Oracle<br />2/2/2010<br />BLADE Network Technologies Confidential<br />4<br />
  9. 9. Hypervisor types<br />Type 1 – Native aka Bare Metal<br /><ul><li>Hypervisor run directly on the hardware
  10. 10. Examples VMware ESX & XenServer</li></ul>Type 2 - Hosted<br /><ul><li>Hypervisor runs in a conventional OS
