2 The Rise of a New Era in IT CloudWebPC / Client-ServerSayThat new era is characterized by the promise of cloud computing.The “Web” completely changed the way we think about consuming services over the internet. But that was only half of the picture. The other half is how those services are delivered. That’s the focus of cloud computing, which completes the transformation of service delivery.VMware, the customer-proven leader in virtualization, is aggressively helping businesses pave the path to “Cloud Computing”, which promises to be the new era in IT that finally addresses the compounding problem of complexity.MainframeCloud Computing will transform the delivery of IT services

Examples of this which are enabled by vSphere and vCenter include HA/FT and DRS and now compliance policies in our new VCM product.At the application layer our strategy is to ensure application performance independent of infrastructure or location (important in the cloud) by encapsulating apps with policy (vApps) and establishing a contract with the infrastructure. We are also imbedding management capabilities in the application platform layer itself with Spring.For end user computing we are changing the paradigm from managing devices to managing users and their applications and information.Infrastructure & Operations ManagementCreate a zero-touch, compliant infrastructureBuild automation into platformDeliver self-service through policy-driven controlVMware Cloud DirectorvSphereVMware Management Solutions

28 Cloud Requires a New Approach Traditional IT ManagementOSAPPServices and assets tied together in complex, brittle, vertical stacks that are hard to change and manageOSCloud ManagementService components are abstracted and sourced from dynamic resource pools with horizontal layers loosely bound into servicesThe fact is, virtualization and cloud computing require a new approach to management.Traditional management can’t keep up with the dynamism and constant change of virtualized and cloud environments.Traditional vertical silos in which dedicated infrastructure is tied to specific applications are too brittle and hard to change and manage.At VMware, we believe vertical silos need to be turned on their sides.Our approach is to abstract infrastructure and applications – as well end user computing services – into loosely coupled horizontal layers.This allows applications to be managed independently of the infrastructure, and vice versa, allowing applications to be deployed on any virtual infrastructure whether in your private cloud or in the public cloud, thereby ensuring IT and business agility.Business agility suffersIT able to keep up with speed of the business
30 Example: Problems with Traditional Monitoring Tools What does this really mean?Why is it happening?What should you do?Cloud requires a new approach to management. Traditional monitoring tools alone can’t handle it.But before we go into the demo, there are some key new concepts we need to explain.As you know, vCenter Server already collects and reports on hundreds of vSphere metrics that you can see in esxtop as well as various performance charts. (click through slide build)But the key question is --- “what does it really mean?” (next slide)vSphere vCenter ServerServer, Storage, Network MonitoringOS, DB, App Monitoring
31 Example: Problems with Static Thresholds and Alerts Low thresholds cause alert stormsHigh thresholds miss alerts?
32 Solving the Monitoring Problem with Analytics Calculate supermetrics from thousands of data pointsHealthRiskThis is exactly where vCenter Operations comes in. In essence, we simplify all metrics that vCenter collects about every single vSphere object into three simple “super metrics” for workload, health and capacity.

38 Operations: Major Badge – Health RiskEfficiencyOperations: Major Badge – HealthOne Source of Truth Across the EnterpriseHealth Score - Objective measure of performance based on underlying level of abnormal behaviorHigh Health is good (100-0)Identifies current problems in the systemsIssues that need to be resolved immediately to avoid problemsAnalytics based, calculated from 3 minor badges (Workload, Anomalies, Faults)For any resource or grouping:A single Server, Device, ResourceEntire Tier or SiloEntire Application or ServiceEntire DatacenterAny Arbitrary Group of Resources“How is our world doing?”vCenter Operations Role-Based Performance Dashboards provide unprecedented real-time information regarding the health of all aspects of the IT landscape – applications, technology silos, individual resources, even the normal behavior of individual metrics. With this unified understanding of performance behavior organizations have a common frame of reference, or a common ‘truth’, for collaboration on performance related issues.These visual panels, or ‘widgets’, can be combined/filtered by authorized users of vCenter Operations to form any number of interactive dashboards with absolutely no programming and no heavy training required. Through intuitive ‘drag-and-drop’ interaction with the vCenter Operations interface, authorized users can design new dashboards, publish them to users/roles (full RBAC is part of vCenter Operations capability), or create dashboard ‘templates’ that can be optionally shared with other users/roles.Health is an objective measure of performance based on underlying level of abnormal behavior.Adjusted based on:# of Abnormally behaving KPI# of Abnormally behaving metricsConsideration of lowest / highest volume of abnormalitiesWhen this visual flexibility is combined with vCenter Operations ability to analyze data for any/all sources of performance data, the result is a universal frame of reference, or a common language through which effective team collaboration can be realized.No longer will application server owners, database administrators, or network engineers be limited to their own view of the world. Instead, the various technology owners can have a common insight into the normal behavior of their ‘world’ and a common score card, or health score, to reference and compare against all other technology components that together comprise the business service or application.Minor Badges:- Workload: how hard the object is workingMeasures resource demand divided by resource capacity- Anomalies: how abnormally the object is behavingUnderstands historic behavior and whether current behavior is within defined bounds- Faults: current availability and configuration issuesCreats fault model based on incoming event streamHeatmap-> Provides quick view of many objects at once-> Shows Health of all parent and child objects-> Go back in time (6 hours) and see the “weather” of the Virtual Infrastructure

45 Enterprise hybrid cloud computing AppsAppsCommon platformCommon managementCommon securityVMware =Enterprise Hybrid CloudPrivate CloudvCloud Service ProviderThe real value in cloud computing is when all boundaries are flexible, to enable cross-cloud federation and coordination. This is what gives customers maximum choice and flexibility in how to streamline costs and improve agility. Our belief is that cloud computing implies a ubiquitous model for interoperability between multiple clouds, both within and outside the enterprise. We refer to this as Open Cloud Computing, which we are fully committed to.<click>This is why VMware is working with so many public cloud service providers, as part of our vCloud program, to create compatible cloud environments for application mobility.In particular, we are working with a handful of service providers to create a secure, enterprise-class cloud service, that uses a common service-level management model based on vCloud Director, and a common security model based on vShield, to extend the trust boundary of the enterprise into these public cloud services, and enable the safe, secure mobility of application workloads between the environments.This class of service is referred to as the VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, and ensures a common platform, management model, and security model, to create the ultimate secure hybrid cloud environment.With vCloud, open cloud computing moves from being a technology discussion, to a business decision!Cloud InfrastructureSecurityCloud InfrastructureManagementCloud Computing Moves from a Technology Discussion to a Business Decision
