  20. Lifecycle Manager Summary

  21. Infrastructure Admins VMware Virtual Infrastructure Lifecycle Manager • Overwhelming provisioning burden • No visibility and control of resources and processes Tracking and control VM lifecycle with consistent approval mechanisms Lifecycle Manager is Deployed Across the Datacenter Dev and QA Staging Production Resource Pool Resource Pool Resource Pool Resource Pool

  22. Introducing Lab Manager • Provides a shared library of “transient VMs” • A solution built on VI for VMs used in dev/test, support, training, patch test, demos, evaluations, and outsourcing IT Ops Dev/Test Shared Virtual Machine Library Stores and shares “multi-machine” configurations Network Fencing to simultaneously run copies Web-Based Portal Web interface easy to use even for a non-IT professional LiveLink copies of running machines with a URL Time and Resource Savings Lightweight instantaneous VM copies using Linked Clones Can be used for end-user self-service to free IT staffSafe and Scalable Quotas and Leases to control usage of resources Scalable across pool of ESX resources Support Training/ Demos

  23. VMware Lab Manager The perfect solution, with 4 key characteristics… Self-Service Provisioning Multi-Tier Complete Application Environment (multi-VM) Easy for Non-IT Users – Point-and-Click Library Entry IT in Control of Policy and Quotas

  24. Lab Users and IT Bogged Down In Provisioning Requests BEFORE Lab Manager AFTER Lab Manager Dev Dev IT 3 days 1 min

  25. VM VM Lab Manager 3 New • Work with VirtualCenter and take advantage of its capabilities • Make Lab Manager easily usable by organizations with distinctly different sets of users • Provide configurable security options • Expand the use cases addressable by Lab Manager configurations • Add various platform improvements

  26. VC Integration Lab Manager Client or SOAP API • Lab Manager now does its actions through VC • Manages resource pools that can have DRS, HA, and VMotion enabled • Lab Manager VMs are organized appropriately in VirtualCenter • Agent is auto-installed by LM and VC • Lab Manager can import VC VMs directly HTML over HTTPS VM Consoles:TCP 902, 903 Lab Manager Server and Media Server(s) VIM API VMware Infrastructure .NET Remoting VirtualCenter Server ESX Servers FC, iSCSI, or NFS Shared Storage VMs and Media

  27. LM and VC integration in action • When the user uses Lab Manager, its VMs are organized appropriately in VC and you can see Lab Manager’s actions in the task list.

  28. Linked Clones or Full Clones • Lab Manager now allows creation of VMs using either linked clones or full clones allowing appropriate choice for differing use cases (time/resource savings vs. better sustained write and compatibility with things like VCB) VMDK Files Lab Manager Linked Clone Full Clone Base Disks

  30. Lab Manager Features and Benefits

  31. Infrastructure Admins Developers QA engineers • Long lead times • Dirty systems VMware Virtual Infrastructure Lab Manager Rapid provisioning of multi-tier transient lab environments Lifecycle Manager Tracking and control VM lifecycle with consistent approval mechanisms Lab Manager is Deployed in the Lab Dev and QA Staging Production Resource Pool Resource Pool Resource Pool Resource Pool

  32. Infrastructure Management Challenges (Application Deployment) • Pre-production server sprawl • Provisioning is tedious and time consuming, done one system at a time • Shadow systems are often left on – even when they’re not being used • Underutilized resources are wasting space, power, cooling • Shadow instances “drift” from production configurations • Changes made to production aren’t synched with shadow instances • Shadow instances aren’t “true” copies of production systems (or each other); introduces risk • Ensuring the same changes are applied to each shadow instance is error prone and a primary source of production downtime No way to systematically and accurately move complex system changes through “Stages” before bringing into production

  33. Introducing Stage Manager Pushbutton Movement Across the Lifecycle Service Lifecycle Stage Integration Testing Staging UAT Production Services &Applications VMware Stage Manager Service Operations archive promote clone • Effortless transition of service configurations between stages

  34. VMware Stage Manager Benefits Service Availability Change Control Resource Efficiency Regulatory Compliance Visibility and Clarity Process Times Operating Expenses Risk of Failure Wasted Resources

  35. Each stage associated with a resource pool VMware Stage Manager Staging Production Testing Integration VMware Infrastructure 3 VMware VirtualCenter + DRS, HA, VMotion Virtualized Staging and Production Servers Shared Storage

  36. Scenario: IT Service Delivery Before Stage Manager Bringing services and business applications into production is a long and complex process Repeated installation, testing and configuration tasks lead to many opportunities for error With Stage Manager Release process is streamlined and automated Install once and promote service configurations through the stages of the release process and the associated resource pools Integration Testing Staging UAT Production create promote

  37. Scenario: Patch Testing Before Stage Manager Applying patches to production is a risky, time-consuming process Requires “shadow copies” of production system which can easily drift and be out-of-synch With Stage Manager Create an exact clone of IT service in production Transition clone to earlier stage of the CCR process for testing Move patched clone into production, or apply patch directly Integration Testing Staging UAT Production promote clone

  38. Supporting Technology: Linked Clones Linked Clones & Full Disks Use linked clones to save storage space in earlier stages Get better performance with full clones in later stages Consolidate a configuration to move between datastores: use less expensive storage earlier in the lifecycle Integration Testing Staging UAT Production

  39. Supporting Technology: Network Fencing Deploy exact copies of service configurations without causing network interference. • Isolation between fences (allow or block traffic in/out) • Zero modification of network settings in VMs needed • Internal and External Resources remain accessible Integration Testing Staging UAT Production clone

  40. Stage Manager Features and Benefits

  43. Site Recovery ManagerSRMDeep Dive

  44. Disasters? • What is a disaster • Declaration of a disaster usually requires consensus from the C*O level • Complete loss of a data center for an extended period of time • What is not a disaster? • Failure of an individual host • A temporary service interruption

  45. The Current State of (Physical) DR • DR services tiered according to business needs • Physical DR is challenging • Maintain identical hardware at both locations • Apply upgrades and patches in parallel • Little automation • Error-prone and difficult to test

  46. Press In Case of Disaster Advantages of Virtual Disaster Recovery • VMware is a true enabler for Disaster Recovery • Virtual machines are portable • Virtual hardware can be automatically configured • Test and failover can be automated (minimizes human error) • The need for idle hardware is reduced • Costs are lowered, and the quality of service is raised

  47. Introducing VMware Site Recovery Manager Site Recovery Manager leverages VMware Infrastructure to deliver advanced disaster recovery management and automation • Simplifies and automates disaster recovery workflows: • Setup, testing, failover • Turns manual recovery runbooks into automated recovery plans • Provides central management of recovery plans from VirtualCenter • Works with VMware Infrastructure to make disaster recovery rapid, reliable, manageable, affordable
