  2. Agenda • Intro to Virtualizing & Cloud • Journey to the Hyper-V Cloud • Phase 1- Dipping the Toe in Virtual Water • Phase 2 - Full Speed Ahead • Phase 3 – Final Steps to the Private Cloud • Conclusion

  3. Today’s IT Challenge:Balancing Act of Value and Cost Organizations need an flexible IT environmentthat supports both dimensions Business Requirements Vs. Resource Reality REDUCE COSTS DELIVERING VALUE • Deliver innovation • Enable flexibility • Ease of use • Information access • Consolidation • Create economies of scale through standardization • Reduce IT costs

  4. When Worlds Collide App Aware Protect Secure Physical Infrastructure Virtual Infrastructure Store Cloud OS Intelli-gence VDI Manage & Automate

  5. What is a Cloud and How Do I Get One? Private Public Cumulus Hosted Private Cloud Hybrid Cloud

  6. The Private Cloud: Why Now? • IT Infrastructure • Complex • Inefficient • Inflexible • IT budget • 70% Maintenance 5%Infrastructure Investment 23%ApplicationInvestment 42%Infrastructure Maintenance 30%Application Maintenance Source: Fortune 100 customers.

  7. Build the Bridge to the Private Cloud THE Bridge ThePrivate Cloud Today’sIT World THE Journey Increasing complexity,inflexibility, and cost oftraditional IT environments of fully automatedand virtualizeddata centers Unprecedented levels of efficiency, control & choice

  8. Journey to the Hyper-V Private Cloud IT Production Business Production IT-as-a-Service Development,Test & IT-OwnedApplications 85% 95% % Virtualized 50% Run IT As A Business Mission Critical Applications 30% 15% Platinum Gold

  9. Analyze, Assess & Plan Find opportunities for consolidation Ensure workloads will be a fit Use Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit Identify hardware for virtualization using Hyper-V Detailed assessment of server utilization and recommendations for server consolidation Customer Begins the Journey to Hyper-VDipping your Toe in Virtual Water IT Production Development,Test & IT-OwnedApplications % Virtualized 30% 15%

  10. Journey Begins with Microsoft Exchange • Pretend like you’re doing it physically… Just do it virtually • Architect for the application, not for the virtualization solution • Refer to support policies, recommendations and Best Practice documents • Deploy VMs with similar roles on separate hosts • MBX VMs in same DAG should not co-locate • Spread your CAS around • Deploy with Fixed Disk VHD • Scale up and scale out

  11. Hardware Requirements for your Virtual World • Storage Infrastructure Requirements • Efficiency • Simplicity • Flexible • Supports file, block & object • Meets Application Demands • Automatic storage tiering • Out-of-the-box integration • Hyper-V, System Center, Data Protection

  12. Increase storage utilization and buy up to 5x less storage 5000 Exchange users x 1GB Mailboxes 5 TB 5000 Exchange users x 5GB Mailboxes 25 TB Dynamic Capacity Provisioning Dynamic Capacity Traditional Storage Full/Over-Provisioned Thin Provisioning Instead, only allocate space when data is created written, andpay as you grow People overbuyunused capacity all the time

  13. Solution Components: Cisco UCS B200 Servers hosting 32,000 Exchange 2010 mailboxes Replication provided by native Exchange Database Availability Groups Virtualization of all Exchange roles using Microsoft Hyper-V Exchange Thin Provisioned LUNs provided by EMC Unified Storage Virtualized Exchange Design Guide http://www.emc.com/collateral/hardware/white-papers/h7337-exchange-unified-cisco-hyper-v-wp.pdf

  14. Simplified Management for Windows • Free tool to provision EMC storage for Windows Servers • Windows MMC based • Agent less architecture • Application aware • Fibre Channel, iSCSI & CIFS support

  15. Storage Integrator Use Cases Where are these LUNs coming from? • Provides insight into mapping of application and physical disk resources to storage arrays • Bridges the complexity gap between Server/Application admin to storage admin • Eliminates costly mistakes – automatic incorporation of application best practices for storage provisioning I need storage for my SharePoint Web App deployment ASAP

  16. EMC Storage Integrator demo

  17. Journey to the Hyper-V Private CloudFull Speed Ahead • Virtualize the Datacenter • Identify what isn’t a fit opposed to the other way around • Design goal: end users don’t know if it is physical or virtual • Several Benefits • Reduced power and cooling • Easier management • Simplify High Availability & Disaster Recovery for the server and applications Business Production 85% % Virtualized 50% Mission Critical Applications

  18. Journey Continues with Microsoft SQL Server & Sharepoint • Follow Microsoft Best Practices for SQL Server & SharePoint • Use perfmon to identify intensive SQL workloads & deploy appropriately • Design back-end to support workload (IOPS) • Create separate dedicated networks for public traffic, Hyper-V management operations and storage connectivity • Continue to place database and log files on separate spindles for performance and recovery purposes

  19. Older approaches are inefficient for virtualized workloads Maintain Performance in a Virtual World Short stroked & striped Aggregating Mechanical Drives Using a lot of spindles for IOPS results in low capacity utilization Disk Disk Disk Disk Disk Poor utilization Striped Flash Drives Flash drives are faster than mechanical disks – but expensive Flash Flash Flash Better utilization… but $$$

  20. Maintain Performance in a Virtual WorldAutomatic Data Optimization Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST) for Virtual Pools Self-OptimizingStorage Pools • All data activity is constantly tracked • High activity data moved to Flash drives • Low activity to cost effective disk • Applications get best response time possible for data Data Active Data Inactive Data 5% Flash 95% Disk Storage pool

  21. Tame the DataCenterSystem Center for IT Management • Single tool for physical and virtual servers • Top to bottom management of infrastructure • Automate many tasks • Templates and Powershell integration for rapid deployment

  22. Storage Management using System Center Operations Manager & PRO demo

  23. High Availability for Hyper-VCluster Shared Volumes (CSV) • Failover Cluster Feature • Single Consistent Name Space • Multiple Nodes Access the Same Volume Simultaneously • Simplified Management with less volumes to manage CSV

  24. One tool to replicate all applications, servers & storage Dynamic Synchronous and Asynchronous Replication Point-in-time roll-back FibreChannel or iSCSI Storage Built in VDI and VSS Application Integration Cluster Enabler to stretch your cluster across geographic locations Hyper-V Virtual Machine Failure Event Site A Site B Hyper-V Failover Cluster RecoverPoint

  25. Virtualized SQL Server Test Results • Tested SQL Server 2008 on Fibre Channel SAN to measure performance • Similar performance between physical and virtual with Hyper-V Pass-through • Using Flash drives to extend cache (FAST Cache), significant performance gains were realized

  26. Virtualizing Sharepoint with Hyper-V • Hyper-V with Failover Clustering of all servers • MetaLogixStoragePoint moved 92% aged content to cost effective disks • Tiered data on single SAN to service all workloads • Increased useable capacity without impacting performance

  27. Next Steps in the JourneyVirtual Storage VPLEXGlobal VPLEXGeo VPLEXMetro VPLEXLocal Synchronous Anywhere Asynchronous Data Center Access Anywhere Enables The Virtual Data Center

  28. The Private Cloud VirtualClients VirtualApplications Federation Virtualization Information Private Cloud Public Cloud Security

  29. Policy-driven Manage outcomes, not elements Automated and fluid Lower cost Better reliability Workflow orchestration Chargeback for usage Run IT as a business Final Steps to the Private Cloud IT-as-a-Service 95% % Virtualized Run IT As A Business Platinum Gold

  30. EMC Provisioning Integration • Created for Opalis version 6.3 • EMC Provisioning cmdlets have been formulated as Opalis objects which can be employed in Opalis workflows • PowerShell scripts have been incorporated to handle login credential inputs • Leverage SMI-S and System Center to deliver a better Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution • Extend provisioning capabilities to Self Service Portal (SSP)

  31. Summary • The journey to implementing a cloud solution will be unique for each environment, no two scenarios are the same • Hyper-V virtualization is the key to realizing the benefits of a private cloud • Implement a customizable, dynamic virtualized environment that is both scalable and highly available • A successful cloud solution leverages technologies from many vendors – no single solution • Enjoy the ride, these are exciting times
