VMware@Night: Container & Virtualisierung


Published on

Mit Urs Stephan Alder (CEO Kybernetika), Michael Abmayer (Senior Consultant Opvizor) und Dennis Zimmer (CEO Opvizor) präsentierten gleich 3 hochkarätige Referenten an der vergangenen VMware@Night bei Digicomp. Sie zeigten zusammen auf, welche Auswirkungen Container in der Virtualisierung auf den täglichen Betrieb sowie die Performance- und Kapazitätsplanung haben.

Vor allem Docker ist derzeit in aller Munde und die bekannteste und meist genutzte Container-Technologie. Container werden vielfach in virtuellen Maschinen betrieben und stellen eine neue Herausforderung für VMware- Administratoren, aber auch IT-Manager dar. Gewährleistung und Überwachung der Performance sowie eine möglichst genaue Kapazitätsplanung sind Herausforderungen, denen man sich zügig stellen muss.

Nach einer kurzen Einführung in die Thematik der Container, in der auch die Unterschiede zur Virtualisierung aufgezeigt wurde, widmeten sich die Referenten dem Umgang mit Conteinern am Beispiel von Docker mit VMware vSphere. Zum Abschluss wurde die Performanceüberwachung und Kapazitätsplanung behandelt.

  11. 11. 11 About UnitrendsDocker Architecture Docker replaced LXC with its own libcontainer library written in Go, allowing for broader native support for different vendors. Additionally, Docker now offers native support for Window, streamlining the management of Docker hosts and containers on Windows development machines. Source - Docker

  13. 13. 13 About UnitrendsPerformance – LINPACK Test LINPACK solves a dense system of linear equations (Ax=b), measures the amount of time it takes to factor and solve the system of N equations, converts that time into a performance rate, and tests the results for accuracy. We used an optimized version of the LINPACK benchmark binary based on the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL). Source -

  17. 17. 17 About Unitrends Container Pros and Cons
  18. 18. 18 About UnitrendsContainer Pro For both developers and operators, Docker offers the following high-level benefits: Deployment Speed/Agility Docker containers house the minimal requirements for running the application, enabling quick and lightweight deployment. Portability Because containers are essentially independent self-sufficient application bundles, they can be run across machines without compatibility issues. Reuse Containers can be versioned, archived, shared, and used for rolling back previous versions of an application. Platform configurations can essentially be managed as code.
  19. 19. 19 About UnitrendsContainer Cons Security Docker containers can be easily deployed, but there content is not necessary know. offers a public registry where people can publish without restrictions to the community. Its up to the individual how to handle it. Official images from different vendors available to lower that risk. Complex Container can be very complex if not documented well. Sometimes they need other containers as dependencies (DB, Queuing), or specific commands to run applications. Furthermore, it becomes a headache to maintain all kinds of updates throughout all hosts and container. Network Containers are used in combination with ip forwarding. If container are used without discipline, its hard or even impossible to keep up with the network changes. Newer technologies as network plugins and Vxlan are used to solve certain issues. The network and the security concept are most critical for a well-made design.

  21. 21. 21 About UnitrendsInstall Docker Virtual machine with Ubuntu Server 16.04 amd64: $ sudo apt-get install Ubuntu fetches packages, installs and starts docker daemon (aka docker engine) optional: $ sudo adduser ubuntu docker (this has security implications; re-login to make group- membership effective) If you don’t add your working user to docker-group, you will have to run docker-cli- commands with sudo.
  22. 22. 22 About UnitrendsRun containers $ docker run hello-world Create your own wordpress install within minutes: $ docker run -d --name mysql-container -v /hostpath to mysqldata/:/var/lib/mysql/ -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=mysqlpwd mysql $ docker run -d --name wordpress-container --link mysql-container:mysql -p 8080:80 wordpress Point your browser to http://yourhost:8080/ and enjoy. $ docker run –it ubuntu:latest Try to portscan the surrounding network.
