4 © 2012 IBM Corporation IBM Global Technology Services There are significant CHALLENGES lurking within virtual infrastructure! Broken promise of virtualization – low density, high cost, performance issues and operational challenges Return-on-Investment (ROI) objectives have not been achieved. Management is reactive due to a lack of visibility. Performance issues due to a misallocation of resources are common. Hardware is routinely over-provisioned to off-set risk. –But excess capacity doesnt solve the problem - workload placements and resource allocations that align with service level requirements, operational policies and utilization profiles are critical to ensuring performance and efficiency. 4

5 © 2012 IBM Corporation IBM Global Technology Services Traditional approaches to infrastructure resource management introduce COMPLEXITIES in managing virtual environments IT teams are struggling to answer critical questions: How much infrastructure is required to run my workloads and satisfy policy requirements? How much resource does each individual workload require to avoid performance issues without over-allocating resources? Where should I place this workload to comply with policies and optimize use of infrastructure? How can I prevent capacity shortfalls with the changing demand in my environment? How can I increase responsiveness to the business when they ask if there is room for a new workload? 555 IBM Global Technology Services

6 © 2012 IBM Corporation IBM Global Technology Services What concerns you the most? 1.Do I have the proper amount of capacity to efficiently and safely run my virtualized infrastructure? 2.Determining how much resource I need to allocate for each virtual workload. 3.How to find spare capacity on my existing servers to run new workloads (without having to buy new hardware). 4.Am I at risk of capacity shortfall in periods of peak demand? 5.How can I plan for future growth? 6

7 © 2012 IBM Corporation IBM Global Technology Services IBM VES SOLUTION - a server efficiency study to assess the health of existing virtual infrastructure 7 Using advanced analytics, IBM can evaluate the operational dynamics of your infrastructure to help identify optimization opportunities and remediate risks. Install analytics software Identify up to 500 virtual machines for analysis at customer site Gather seven to fourteen days of data from VMware vCenter Review client VMware virtual infrastructure Review Vcenter and ESX data gathering configuration Finalize VMware virtual instance in scope Review analysis template configuration Review client policies Review business constraints and objectives Analyze gathered data showing current performance and stability Rerun analysis applying best practice polices Identify recommended remediation steps Provide a detailed report: Showing efficiency and risk at the virtual machine, host and cluster levels Show policy change impact Provide VM rebalancing recommendations Show over-provisioned hosts and guests Show under-provisioned hosts and guests Data collection Review current requirements and policies Analyze dataFinal report

11 © 2012 IBM Corporation IBM Global Technology Services We provide a report with actionable recommendations to help improve the performance and utilization of your virtual infrastructure Our detailed report may contain the following: Single view showing efficiency and risk at the virtual machine, host and cluster levels Efficiency measurement for clusters incorporating policy change impact VM rebalancing recommendations Recommended next steps 11 Final report

12 © 2012 IBM Corporation IBM Global Technology Services Benefits of a virtualization efficiency study? 12 Virtualization health check Help reduce risk and identify potential efficiency improvements through standalone analysis of existing virtual environment Hardware refresh Help reduce risks and assess current efficiency before replacing hardware Physical to virtual into existing environment Check health and available capacity of virtual environment before adding new workloads Cloud readiness Clean up existing virtual environment in preparation for moving to a cloud

13 © 2012 IBM Corporation IBM Global Technology Services What benefits would apply to you the most? 1.Help to reduce the risk and identify efficiency improvements 2.Ability to check health and available capacity of virtual environment before adding new workloads 3.Help to assess current efficiency before replacing hardware 4.Clean up existing virtual environment in preparation towards moving to cloud computing 13
