Virtualization with IBM Frank Morassutti Business Development Manager IBM System x Servers
Agenda Virtualization Market X-Architecture™ Advantage Next Generation X4 VMWARE + IBM
>50% are standardizing on virtual infrastructure How Customers Use Virtual Infrastructure Sampling of customer workloads deployed in ESX Server Source: VMworld 2004 customer survey 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% Web Servers Custom Apps File/Print Servers DatabasesJ2EE Servers >75% of VMware customers are running VMware in production >90% of VMware customers are running web servers in virtual machines >75% of VMware customers are running databases in virtual machines >75% of VMware customers are running file/print servers in virtual machines
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
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
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
Application Clustering ESX Server ESX Server 1 ESX Server ESX Server 2
New - VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) VMware Infrastructure 3 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. Dynamic and intelligent allocation of hardware resources to the highest priority virtual machines to ensure optimal alignment between business and IT Resource Pool
New - VMware High Availability (HA) VMware Infrastructure 3 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 Cost effective high availability for all servers Resource Pool X
