Virtualization: customers motivation


Reduce physical server parks


cost reduction, data center space saving


Restructering required due to uncontrolled growth (more and more applications/ servers)


Central management required due to increasing amount of applications


Increase reliability


Aspects of backup data and applications


Scalability


Serviceability aspects:


Reduce maintenance time


e.g. monitoring (load, utilization)


Further use of „old operating systems“ not supported by new hardware


Green IT aspects


reduce
power consumption of servers and air conditions





Typical decision process to evaluate virtualization for a company:


Analyze existing infrastructure: Existing server park / Applications

Virtualization Products Overview

Products for free (for desktop use)

Various solutions are available



Sun Virtual Box


Windows Virtual PC


VMware Player


VMware workstation


VMware Server


….




Hypervisor

(layer for virtualization) is based on a existing OS, so called
hosted solution


Scenarios:



For parallel use of operating systems for test and demo purpose


all virtual machines will break down in case of breakdown of the hosted OS


Not capable for real time applications like OpenScape Office LX or HX


For lab and demo operation of OpenScape Office LX
(just in test status)

Virtualization Products Overview

Well known free products for server virtualization

VMware ESXi,


own OS, 64Bit HW based, certified Server HW required*


Expandable into ESX environments (upgrade not free of charge)


Technological leader


VMs= wide range of Windows, Linux, Solaris, etc.


Citrix Xen Server


Linux based, 64Bit HW with V
-
support required


VMs= wide range of Windows, Linux


Microsoft Hyper V



Windows 2008 Server based, 64Bit HW V
-
support required


VMs= Windows range, only limited other Operating systems available


General statements about these products:



Limited Management functions, limited processor types, limited support for High
availabilty, Failover, Backup, Resource management, etc.


Useful for standalone server solution and for development and testing


all are “Bare Metal Systems”, Hypervisor (layer for virtualization) works close to the
server HW, so is not based on a host OS.


For LX, HX applicable

* VMware will check the HW during installation

SEN Strategy for Virtualization

VMware Products for Virtual Infrastructure


SEN’s virtualization strategy focuses on VMware ESX products.


The following slides are based on ESX and related management products.


Only “Server Virtualization” will be supported


OpenScape Office will follow the general SEN virtualization strategy

What is Server Virtualization?


Server Virtualization encapsulates hardware, operating system and
application into a portable, hardware
-
independent software container;
also knows as Virtual Machine or VM.


It allows to run multiple of these software containers on the same
hardware.

Management of a Virtual Infrastructure


VMware vCenter Server provides a scalable and
extensible platform that forms the foundation for
virtualization management. VMware vCenter Server,
formerly VMware VirtualCenter, centrally manages
VMware ESX environments allowing IT administrators
improved control over the virtual environment



VMware vCenter Server:



Provides centralized control and visibility at every
level of virtual infrastructure


Unlocks the power of the virtual infrastructure
through proactive management


Is a scalable and extensible management
platform with a broad partner ecosystem

Virtual VMFS
-

Virtual Machine File System


VMFS is a clustering file system which
allows for multiple hosts to read and
write from the same storage location
concurrently.


It has adaptive block sizing and

uses
both large block sizes favored by virtual
disk I/O and sub
-
block allocation for
small files and directories.


Uses on
-
disk disk file locking to

ensure
that the same virtual machine is not
powered on by multiple servers at the
same time.

VMware Features

Virtual SMP
-

Virtual Symmetric Multi
-

processor cores simultaneously.



Run resource intensive applications in virtualized environments, including
databases, ERP and CRM applications



Scale computing environments without

adding new hardware by allowing multiple

processors to work together



Improve software development and

deployment, enabling the creation of

more realistic development and

testing environments

VMware Features

VMotion


Move running virtual machines from one physical server to another with
no impact to end users or running applications.

This is also known as a
“hot” or “live” migration.



Perform hardware maintenance without scheduling downtime and
disrupting business operations.



Proactively move virtual machines away from failing or underperforming
servers.

VMware Features

Storage VMotion


Introduced in ESX 3.5, Storage VMotion
allows you to migrate a running virtual
machine and its disk files from one datastore
to another.



The difference between VMotion and Storage
VMotion is that VMotion simply moves a virtual
machine from one ESX host to another but
keeps the storage location of the VM the
same,
Storage VMotion on the other hand
changes the storage location of the virtual
machine while it is running and moves it to
another datastore.

The virtual machine can be
moved to any datastore on the ESX host
which includes local and shared storage.

DRS


Distributed Resource Scheduler


Continuously monitors utilization across servers and intelligently allocates
available resources among virtual machines according to business needs.



DRS balance capacity will ensure that each virtual machine has access to
appropriate resource. Improves service levels for all applications.

HA


High Availability


Monitors and detects virtual machines for “guest OS” failures and
automatically starts virtual machines.



Detects server failures automatically, using a “heartbeat” on servers.



Restarts virtual machines almost

instantly without human intervention

on a different physical server.



Continuously monitors and chooses

the optimal physical servers on

which to restart virtual machines

(if used in conjunction with DRS).

How can OpenScape Office LX / HX

benefit from Virtualization



New Sales Opportunities!



Partners have a chance to market OpenScape Office V3 if a customer is already
running a virtualized data center



Speed up Installations!



Snap Shots can be taken and reused for another installation, just a simple “copy”



Virtualization will help to find a lot of options for server hardware



Additional options for resources monitoring, LAN ports, CPU, disk space…



Improved Security and Availability!



VMotion, Storage VMotion, High Availibility and Data Recovery can be used



OpenScape Office will smoothly integrate in the already existing security strategies of
the customer



Selling VMware could also be an additional opportunity for voice partners
