  3. 3. Survey <ul><ul><li>How many already a virtualization solution have deployed? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the approximate current physical server counts in the room? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Less than 10 servers </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>11-30 servers </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>31 or more servers </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What operating systems are in use? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What industries are represented in the room? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do you consider yourself a line-of-business person or an engineer? </li></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc.
  4. 4. What is virtualization <ul><ul><li>Types of virtualization- Server, desktop, storage, networking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Server virtualization is the masking of server resources, including the number and identity of individual physical servers, processors, and operating systems, from server users. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allows multiple operating systems to run on the same physical computer at the same time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Various implementations- sensitive instructions replaced by binary translation or trapped by hardware, OS allows for multiple user-space instances </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IBM- System 360 </li></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc.
  5. 5. Definitions <ul><ul><li>Host - The physical computer on which the virtual machine(s) are configured or run </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual machine (Guest OS, VM)- The “computer” that runs as virtual machine software on the host computer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual disk- One or more files that reside on the host computer that make up the VM’s hard disk </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual network- The network configuration used by the VM to tell it how to work with the network </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Datastore- Logical storage unit, which can use disk space on one physical device or one disk partition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Snapshot- A copy of a VM at a particular moment in time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service Console- Vmware console access using Alt-F1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure client- Download to manage hosts/VMs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Note: some Vmware terminology is changing in ESX 4.0 </li></ul></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc.

  10. 10. Why virtualize servers <ul><ul><li>Reduce physical server sprawl (>30m physical servers, 40x next 10 yrs., sometimes you increase count of virtual servers) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To provide OS/application isolation (Exchange 2007, Sharepoint, specialty applications, x64 OSes) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Share server resources (lower hardware costs, redundancy) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce power consumption (every $1 spent on hw. 50c power/cooling) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce space requirements (data centers AND small offices) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rapid server spin up (as long as capacity there) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hardware independence (snapshots can run on any hardware means portability) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Looking at other DR/BC reasons (snapshots, Vmotion, DR site) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Business agility </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create cloud services </li></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc.
  11. 11. What studies say Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc. Aiming for business agility <ul><li>Overwhelming complexity </li></ul><ul><li>>70% of IT budgets just to keep the lights on </li></ul><ul><li><30% of IT budgets goes to innovation and competitive advantage </li></ul>Business Can Change Only as Fast as IT Can Where the IT Budget Goes Source: VMware Fortune 100 Customers 42% Infrastructure Maintenance 30% Application Maintenance 23% Application Investment 5% Infrastructure Investment
  12. 12. Deploying Vmware <ul><ul><li>Virtual Infrastructure Methodology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Assess </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Plan </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Build </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Manage </li></ul></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc.
  13. 13. Deploying Vmware <ul><ul><li>Inventory analysis to exclude ineligible candidates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Look at system architecture, OS, specialized peripherals, compute requirements </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review current core resources- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>CPU (# CPUs, # cores, speed) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>memory (RAM size, page file size) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>disk (disk size, OS and app data separate from data, is external storage DAS, NAS, SAN, available capacity) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NIC (number NICs and speed, VLAN info) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collect performance data (remember, you’re consolidating) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>CPU (sum needed CPU cycles for all VMs) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>memory (sum needed RAM maxima for all VMs) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>disk (sum needed disk for all VMs, VM swap) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NIC (sum needed bandwidth for all VMs) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Categorize according to priority </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Qualified candidates- low util, no obvious barriers, (DCs, file, web servers) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Semi-qualified- more complex cfg, resource requirements (db servers, high util app svrs, clustered apps </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ineligible- </li></ul></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc.
  14. 14. Why not virtualize <ul><ul><li>Determine if virtualization is right for you </li></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc. ISSUE DIFFERENT POSSIBLE SOLUTION Convert dying hardware to virtual Server imaging tools can migrate to new physical hardware Create a manual DR backup Can automate with data replication software Virtualize high IO application Upgrade to beefier physical hardware Rapid turnup of multiple servers Blade solutions may offer needed performance Assume VM is best DR solution Explore traditional cluster, NLB or app specific options        
  15. 15. Managing Vmware <ul><ul><li>Basically five ways to do manage Vmware environment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Service Console on main screen (command line) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SSH in the server (user must be configured to allow) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web access to IP of host </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure/vSphere client connect direct to host </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure/vSphere client connect to Virtual Center/vCenter for control of all hosts/VMs </li></ul></ul></ul>Copyright © 2009 The Fulcrum Group Inc.
