  8. Latest VI (ESX) release - fix For ESX Server 3.5 Update 4, the default virtual NIC used for Solaris 10 32-bit and Solaris 9 32-bit has changed For specific guest operating systems, BusLogic SCSI Adapter is inaccurately listed as supported Prior to ESX Server 3.5 Update 4, for 64-bit SMP guests, certain multithreaded applications might experience instability PAE-enabled Windows 2000 virtual machines stop responding VMotion operation might freeze momentarily on RVI-enabled AMD hosts PXE booting a virtual machine fails when rebooting a guest configured to use an e1000 virtual device ESX Server host sensor information is not displayed in the VI Client UI

  11. What’s the news..?

  12. What’s the news..? • If you are NEW to VMware • Attend the VMware vSphere 4: Install, Configure, Manage course OR attend the VMware vSphere 4: Fast Track • Take and pass the VCP on vSphere 4 exam • If you are currently a VCP on VMware Infrastructure 3 • Take and pass the VCP on vSphere 4 exam.  This option will only be available until December 31, 2009.  Beginning in 2010, VCPs on VI3 must attend the VMware vSphere 4: What’s New class in order to upgrade. • If you are currently a VCP on ESX 2.x • Take and pass the VCP on VMware Infrastructure 3 exam • Take and pass the VCP on vSphere 4 Exam. This option will only be available until December 31, 2009.  Beginning in 2010, VCPs on VI3 must attend the VMware vSphere 4: What’s New class in order to upgrade. • If you are not a VCP on VI3, but have attended one of the prerequisite classes (Install & Configure; Deploy Secure & Analyze; or Fast Track). • Take and pass the VCP on VMware Infrastructure 3 exam OR attend the VMware vSphere: What’s New course.Take and pass the VCP on vSphere 4 Exam.

  13. What’s the news..? • Having a WTF Moment - Oracle Buys Virtual Iron • Oracle announced the following: • Oracle has agreed to acquire Virtual Iron Software, Inc. (Virtual Iron), a provider of server virtualization management software that enables dynamic resource and capacity management in virtualized datacenters. • The combination of Virtual Iron’s technology and Oracle VM’s scalable, high performance and highly available server virtualization product is expected to provide more comprehensive and dynamic resource management across the full software stack. • Customers are expected to benefit from better capacity utilization, streamlined virtual server configuration, and improved visibility and control of their enterprise software. • The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close this summer. • Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently. • Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

  19. What’s the news..? Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 Release Candidate ready to download Free live migration Free HA MS: Rebuttal:

  20. What’s the news..? With Windows Server 2008 failover clustering, an administrator must store each virtual machine on an individual LUN. Because an administrator must provide all cluster nodes with access to the same shared storage by using the same drive letters,23 is the maximum number of virtual machines that can run in a failover cluster. Microsoft IT could work around this limitation by using mount points and virtual machine groupings, but it considers this configuration too complex to administer.Because of this limitation, Microsoft IT has adopted a standard of using only three nodes in a cluster, with the cluster configured to tolerate one node’s failure.

  21. What’s the news..? VMware Infrastructure Toolkit (for Windows) Latest Version: 1.5 | 2009/01/27 | Build: 142961 Quick Migration Report into MS Word Dynamic Resource Pool Calculator VMware Infrastructure Power Documenter ESX Automated Configuration Midwife VMware Health Check script Track Datastore Free Space List disk RDMS Find snapshots and send email to user/users with Setting Video Hardware Acceleration Level

  22. vSphere 4 Virtual Machines: 8xvCPUs & 256GB RAM Hot-add of memory/cpu Thinly-provisioned disks New Guest OS - including more legacy OSes Record & Replay - You now have a PVR for a VM! VMCI - VMs can communicate directly to each other without the use of a NIC! vApp - collections of VMs which like virtual appliances can be downloaded/uploaded to make suite of applications

  23. vSphere 4 ESX4:  64-bit Support for 512GB RAM 64 cores Native SATA support Service Console is a VM with a virtual disk vCenter4: Linked-Mode - Link 2 or more vCenters into a single management window Massively increase alarms/alerts - alarm to warn you about snapshot size! YEAH! No more license server - just license strings! Optional: vCenter Hearbeat Service (aka NeverFail) Optional: Mobile Access - manage VMs from your smartphone/pda

  24. vSphere 4 Networking: Native IPv6 support for the Management and VMkernel IP Stacks Distributed Virtual Switches - One switch to rule them all! Easy Migration from Standard vSwitches to the new DvSwitch Storage: Improved UI - Visability from virtual down to the physical Increase - IF LUNs are made bigger so can the VMFS Plugable Storage Array - Vendors like EMC add plug-ins to vCenter Organize datastores into folders - set permissions - folks put their VMs in the RIGHT location New UIs to handle multipathing New CLIs to handle VMFS resignaturing Access Control: New roles - “Datastore Consumer” and “Network Consumer”

  25. vSphere 4 Moving the VM: New simplier wizard - Change Host, Change Datastore, Change both Storage VMotion now integrated into the UI Linked with DvS and Port State Migration - zero packet loss on VMotions Distributed Power Management: Now fully supported Based on ILO authentication, rather than Wake-On-LAN Magic Packets Uptimes: Old Advanced HA Options - now available from the UI New advanced optionsHA to control memory and CPU alerts VMware Fault Tolerence (FT) - neverfail a VM even on death of an ESX host

  26. vSphere 4 Advanced Configuration Tools: All the main management tools get an upgrade - so new version of the RCLI, VIMA, PowerShell VMware Orchestrator - built-in to vCenter Host Profiles - Attach you configuration to an ESX host, and apply - the end of scripted builds??? Backup: On its way - a new version of VCB In Beta - The Data Recovery Appliance. A virtual appliance to backup VMs pitched at SMBs… VUM and Upgrade: Stage an ESX host - download all patches to it first, then later trigger the install process Collect baselines into baseline groups - and apply to ESX host/VMs Upgrading Baselines - Upgrade ESX and VMs using VUM
