3 Agenda Business Continuity Requirements Minimizing Downtime in the Datacenter Providing Effective Disaster Recovery Summary and Next Steps

4 Solutions to reduce downtime need to address both planned and unplanned downtime Sources of Downtime Eliminating planned downtime can increase system availability by a full order of magnitude

5 Data Loss and Time to Recover TIME Disaster Strikes How far back?How long to recover? Systems Recovered Last Backup or Point Where Data is in Usable State Recovery TimeRecovery Point Common Challenges: – Data loss of more than 24 Hours? – Recovery Time greater than 4 Hours? Flexible Recovery Point and minimal Recovery Time

6 Requirements for Business Continuity Solutions Ensure minimum interruption time Protection across operating systems and applications Independent of physical infrastructure Protection against a broad spectrum of downtime causes

7 ESX and ESXi – Serious Availability Proven by customers – Over 100,000 customers – Over seven years of maturation – Over 85% of customers using for production workloads – Years of continuous uptime at customer sites Reliable by design ESXi: 32MB on disk Less code = fewer bugs, fewer patches, etc. No dependence on OS or arbitrary drivers 2008 Editor’s Choice Awards Most Reliable Category 1. VMware ESX 2. IBM mainframe

8 Agenda Business Continuity Requirements Minimizing Downtime in the Datacenter – Protection against failures – Eliminating planned downtime Providing Effective Disaster Recovery Summary and Next Steps

9 VMware FT Hardware Failure Tolerance UNPROTECTED Application Coverage AUTOMATED RESTART CONTINUOUS 0% 10% 100% with VMware HA Transforming Availability Service Levels

10 Fast Recovery from Hardware and Software Failures… Interconnect Pool CPU Pool Memory PoolStorage Pool VMware Infrastructure – Storage VMotion – HA—High Availability Application vServices – VMotion, DRS – Update Manager App ServerExchangeFile/Print

11 High Availability vServices X VMware High Availability makes all Servers and Applications protected against component and complete system failure. Only One-Click to configure! Recover from Unplanned Downtime

12 VMware HA Enhancements 32-node clusters Additional isolation addresses Configurable failure detection time VMs are now restarted on hosts with most resources Proactive cluster configuration checks VM Failure monitoring (experimental) : – Monitors virtual machines for guest OS failures – Automatically restarts VM after specified interval Resource Pool X Automatic restart of virtual machines in case of physical server failures Simple, cost effective availability for any workload Minimizes unplanned downtime due to hardware and OS failures

13 High Availability vServices X Set at cluster level Applies to all VMs in the cluster Can disable using “Restart priority” for individual VM Uses the VMtools heartbeat Virtual Machine Monitoring

14 Proactively Avoid Planned Downtime VMotion

15 Array A (off lease) LUN A2 LUN A1 Array B (NEW) LUN B2 LUN B1 Eliminating Downtime for Storage Changes Examples – Redistributing load – Optimizing storage configuration – Storage refresh Storage VMotion – Online migration of virtual machine disks to new datastore – Zero downtime for applications and users

21 Virtual Datacenter OS from VMware SaaS LinuxGridWindowsJ2EE.Net VMware Infrastructure -> Virtual Datacenter OS Application vServices Scalability Infrastructure vServices SecurityAvailability vNetworkvStoragevCompute Cloud vServices ……. Web 2.0 vCenter Application Management Infrastructure Management Site Recovery Manager Lifecycle Manager ConfigControl Orchestrator Capacity IQ Chargeback

22 Dependent on Perfect Training, Documentation, and Execution Complex Recovery Processes and Infrastructure  Recovery takes days to weeks  Recovery tests often fail  Significant IT time and resources consumed Failure to Meet Recovery Requirements Unplanned: Protecting from Hardware Failures

23 Key Features of Virtualization for DR Hardware Independence Encapsulation Partitioning and Consolidation Resource Pooling

24 Automate the Failover of an Entire Datacenter ProductionRecovery Site Recovery Manager transforms disaster recovery VMware Infrastructure

25 Site Recovery Manager Simplifies and Automates DR Ensure that disaster recovery is rapid, reliable, and manageable Setup Testing Failover Allocates recovery resources Integrates with replication Helps build recovery plans Creates isolated test environment Automates tests of recovery plans Cleans up after tests completed Allocates resources for recovery Prepares storage for recovery Automates recovery process

26 Site Recovery Manager Use Cases Target scenarios – Restart of tens or hundreds of VMs in another datacenter – Restart can be unplanned (disaster) or planned (migration) – Can tolerate RTO of minutes to hours Requirements – Second site running VirtualCenter and ESX – Replicated Fibre Channel or iSCSI LUNs from supported storage vendors SRM is not – A replication product – Geo-clustering for applications in VMs

27 Protected SiteRecovery Site VirtualCenter Site Recovery Manager VirtualCenter Site Recovery Manager Datastore Groups Array Replication Datastore Groups X So what does it look like? Protected VMs powered on become unavailable online in Protected Site offline Recovery SiteProtected Site Supports bi- directional site protection

28 Disaster Recovery Setup Integrate with replication – Identify which virtual machines are protected by replication configuration Map recovery resources – Network resources, server resources, management objects Create recovery plans – For virtual machines, applications, business units – Convert manual runbook to pre- programmed response – Customizable with scripting and callouts

30 Failover Automation Detect site failures – Raise alert when heartbeat lost Initiate failover – User confirmation of outage – Granular failover initiation Manage replication failover – Break replication – Make replica visible to recovery hosts Execute recovery process – Use pre-programmed plan – Provide visibility into progress Manage networking – Put VMs on right VLAN – Change IP addresses

32 Testing Replication Management – Snapshot replicated LUNs before test – Delete snapshots of replicated LUNs after test Network Management – Change all virtual machines to a test port group before powering them on Customization/extensibility – Same breakpoints and callouts as failover sequence – Extra breakpoints and callouts around the test bubble

33 Testing Replication Management – Snapshot replicated LUNs before test – Delete snapshots of replicated LUNs after test Network Management – Change all virtual machines to a test port group before powering them on Customization/extensibility – Same breakpoints and callouts as failover sequence – Extra breakpoints and callouts around the test bubble

34 Failback Setup DR protection from DR site back to primary site – Failover makes VMs reside at the DR site – Provide the failed-over VMs with protection – Same setup as was done for initial protection Work with storage to reverse replication Test failback – Test repeatedly – same mechanism as with test failover – Only set the failback date after the plan is perfect Failback to primary site – Just hit the failover button—failback is failover in the reverse direction
