Agenda1. What is Virtualization2. The Business Benefits of Consolidation3. Business Continuity Improvement4. Disaster Recover Options for SMB Customers5. Q&A6. Where to start?
Why?Business Benefits #1 Lower Energy Costs Costs $820 per server or. . . . . # Servers x $820 = $ ??? # of Servers/10 x $820 = $ ??? 10 x $820 = $8200 Subtract for Savings vs Single Virtualized Server $820 Savings of $7380 per year!
Business Benefits Business Benefits #2 Space – Real Estate Savings Server Room will always remain ??? Are you maxing out the space? Virtualization will make a more effective use of your space and storage needs #3 Maintenance Costs 25 Servers = 1 Employee Job Security vs More Responsive Business Unit Provisioning a Server Provides More Competitive Business Environment
Business Benefits #4 Capital Savings How Many Applications do you increase by each year? How Many do you Deny because of Budget Restrictions? HardWare Costs $5K Each Application Costs $5K in Hardware Alone 8 Applications each year? 8x5 $40,000 Hardware 1 Virtualized Server - Providing 8 Applications Savings of $35,000 How much more competitive could you be?
#1 Objective For Virtualization Top Five Objectives for VirtualizationUse virtualization to improve Business 46%Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR)Improve virtual machine performance 33%Increase the server consolidation ratio 32%Improve VM environment management 31%More mission-critical applications 24% Source: WW VMware customer survey, January 2010 N=1083
Why Does Virtualization Matter to My Business? Business Continuity Increased Application Availability Average Downtime Costs* Typical downtime 4 hours Zero down-time failover of failed servers per failure APP APP APP APP APP APP Lost revenue per $2,416 OS OS OS OS OS OS hour ESX ESX Lost staff $50/hour Failed OS or server productivity per hour Detects server failures and migrates the VM to a Average failures per 2different physical server without human intervention year $29,328 per year! Two levels of Application ProtectionFault Tolerance Zero-downtime failover; VM’s migrate off of failed servers Included in Acceleration kitsHigh Automated reboot of VMs in the event of physical server failure Included in Acceleration kits & Essentials PlusAvailability* Average company with 25 employees, 10 servers and $25m a year in sales

Computer Hacks & Attacks Disaster Recovery Man Made IT ErrorServiceDemand Natural Disaster
Disasters Happen. Do You Need Protection? 43% of companies experiencing disasters never re-open, and 29% close within two years. (McGladrey and Pullen) 93% of business that lost their data center for 10 days went bankrupt within one year. (National Archives & Records Administration) Top executives say 10 hours to recovery; IT managers say up to 30 hours. (Harris Interactive)
Disaster Recovery Plan What is your Disaster Recover Plan? Challenges of Current Plans: Not Automated - Too Complex Identical Hardware/Software & Configurations-Budget Restrictive Difficult and Disruptive to Test Run Book – Out of date
vCenter Site Recovery Manager Simple, reliable disaster Overviewprotection and site migration for Site to site replication built into all applications vSphere Replace manual runbooks with centralized recovery plans Site A (Primary) Site B (Recovery) Broad support for storage-based VMware vCenter Server Site Recovery Manager VMware vCenter Server Site Recovery Manager replication VMware vSphere VMware vSphere Benefits Cost efficient replication solution Automate and simplify failover and migration processes New plan setup reduced from Servers Servers weeks to minutes Enable frequent non-disruptive testing
vSphere Data Recovery Quick, simple and completeOverview data protection for virtual Disk-based backup and recovery machines Deployed as a virtual machine running on ESX or ESXi hosts Restore individual files or entire images as neededBenefits Easy to deploy virtual machine Speedy recovery of VMs Built in data de-duplication to save significant disk space Eliminate complexity of managing backup agents in every VM with vStorage APIs for Data Protection
Customer Success Story Embracing Virtualization Kept Network Systems Safe when Disaster Struck “The VMWare Virtualization solution kept our servers safe with “smart” consolidation in the face of a very real environmental threat. Our systems never went down and were ready for school the next morning.’ Quannah McDnaiel, Computer Project Technician, Carroll County Public Schools
