1 Virtualization with IBM
Frank Morassutti Business Development Manager IBM System x Servers

2 Agenda Virtualization Market X-Architecture™ Advantage
Next Generation X4 VMWARE + IBM

3 How Customers Use Virtual Infrastructure
>50% are standardizing on virtual infrastructure Sampling of customer workloads deployed in ESX Server 100% >75% of VMware customers are running VMware in production 80% 60% >90% of VMware customers are running web servers in virtual machines 40% 20% 0% >75% of VMware customers are running databases in virtual machines Web Servers Custom Apps File/Print Servers Databases J2EE Servers Source: VMworld 2004 customer survey >75% of VMware customers are running file/print servers in virtual machines

4 Virtualization on Servers - now the ‘norm’
Resource utilization and flexibility are top perceived benefits Says that Consolidation still prime reason for virtualization Availability and security starting to show up on the horizon Source: IBM primary research

5 Other factors driving Virtualization
Need to reduce power and cooling costs Lower operational budgets New applications accelerate the need for new servers Increased demand on server installation Improved flexibility / manageability 5 5

6 What VMWARE offers - More efficient use of resources
Reduce management complexity by combining stand-alone hosts into clusters for higher availability and more flexible resource controls CPU = a Mem = x CPU = b Mem = y CPU = c Mem = z Stand-alone hosts Cluster Pooled Resources CPU = a+b+c Mem = x+y+z Availability Transparent failover

7 Application Clustering
ESX Server 1 ESX Server 2 ESX Server ESX Server

8 New - VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) VMware Infrastructure 3
Dynamic and intelligent allocation of hardware resources to the highest priority virtual machines to ensure optimal alignment between business and IT Align IT resources with business priorities Dynamically allocate resource to virtual machines. Dramatically increase system administrator productivity Enable system administrators to manage more resources Automate hardware maintenance Maintenance mode automatically migrates all virtual machines to other physical servers. Resource Pool

9 New - VMware High Availability (HA) VMware Infrastructure 3
Cost effective high availability for all servers Automatic (cold) restart of virtual machines in case of server failure No need for dedicated stand-by hardware None of the cost and complexity of clustering X Resource Pool

28 Client Consolidation What is it ? Migration of desktop workloads onto server-based technology to improve and maximize computing resources. Why and what to look for ? Distributed user communities (different buildings, different cities, etc) Need to improve or reduce deskside support? Maximize desktop resources Reduce desktop management issues (theft, S/W maintenance, security) Improve access/control over user community
