1 Cisco Desktop Virtualization with UCS: A Blueprint for Success Eugenios Zervoudis Product Sales Specialist

2 Challenges with Desktop Virtualization today Challenges implementing Enterprise class Virtual Desktop Solutions Performance and Scalability User Experience: Can I guarantee same QoS for each and every user. Poor performance in terms of bad user experience is a major issue Implementing few desktops is easy but can I do it for my enterprise Capacity of underlying infrastructure in a datacenter Is my server/network/storage ready? Can we guarantee the SLA in a cost effective manner? Data Center security: How can I bring desktops and keep other apps secure Manageability Paradigm shift: Managing desktops in VMs vs Managing physical desktops Will the old ways of server manageability help in the future where thousands of desktops are hosted out of the DC? 2

3 Positioning VDI, Cisco Desktop Virtualization Solution, and Cisco VXI Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) (Integrated DC, Network, and Collaboration System) Cisco Desktop Virtualization Solutions (Data Center-centric CVD) Integrated Network Services Performance Optimization Thick, Thin, and Zero-Client Support Single Number Tech Support Validated with 3 rd Party Storage and Virtualization Pre-tested, Ready to Deploy Lower Risk, Faster Deployment Desktop Virtualization (partner-specific & UCS-based) Server and I/O Consolidation Lower CAPEX and OPEX 3

4 Cisco Unified Computing System Ideal Platform for Desktop Virtualization Service Profiles Rapid provisioning UCS Extended Memory Higher consolidation ratios Unified Fabric Wire-once infrastructure VN-Link Simplifies network management 4

5 5

6 Cisco UCS - Ideal Architecture for Desktop Virtualization 20% lower cost for compute + network infrastructure Cisco UCS 60% greater virtual desktop density w/o performance impact Simple Operation - start in minutes, scale in seconds Massive Scalability - scales to 320 servers / 1000 s of desktops per UCS system Extended memory and I/O to get around desktop virtualization bottlenecks 6

7 Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Example 3,000 Users 69% Reduction In Components 1,380 fewer infrastructure components to purchase, provision, monitor, maintain, power, cool, repair

8 CapEx Reduction: 40% $550 1,380 fewer infrastructure components to purchase, provision, monitor, maintain, power, cool, repair. $544 $304 $1,640 $1,199 $997 8

9 OpEx Reduction: 48% $404 $451 $1,165 $1,106 $329 $458 9

10 UCS Offer Strategy for Desktop Virtualization Design for Ease to Deploy, Build to Scale Create a logical building block architecture for rapid time to deployment and easy scale Focused on VDI-Based Desktops and Hosted Shared Desktops Simple entry point for customers starting DV and need a base solution Starter kit for proof of concept and Base installations Ability to scale these entry points with pre-defined, validated, expansion bundles Utilize a single support number for customer support of Compute, Virtualization, and Storage Designed to achieve a full size VXI architecture that encompasses both base and expansion bundles Capable of scaling to thousands of desktops 10

11 Cisco Desktop Virtualization Solution Removes VDI deployment barriers Combined joint partner solutions with industry leaders Cisco Validated Designs & Services to accelerate customer success Partner Solution Elements Storage Cisco MDS9000 Family Virtualization Cisco ASA Cisco WAAS Cisco ACE App App Data Desktop O/S Desktop Virtualization S/W VMware/Citrix Hypervisor VMware/Citrix/Microsoft Clients Unified Fabric Unified Network Services Unified Computing WAN Cisco Data Center Business Advantage Framework Virtualized Data Center 11

12 Scalable Desktop Virtualization Architecture Deliver a Proven Datacenter Architecture Netapp FAS 3140/3170 Storage LAN MDS 9xxx Nexus 5000 Access UCS Fabric Interconnect UCS Chassis and B-Series Blades 13

13 Scalable Architecture The UCS architecture scales upto 20 Chassis in a single UCS domain The RA is designed to scale upto the maximum supported chassis with minimal changes. Based on Best practice of various partner components Just connect more chassis to the FI, deploy servers from the SP template Add more storage and increase the XenDesktop infrastructure to handle more desktops 14

14 Network aspect of Citrix XenDesktop that Shines in Cisco UCS A PVS based design for Citrix XenDesktop essentially needs a fast/low-latency network Cisco UCS provides not just 10G, low-latency cutthrough architecture but give QOS guarantees Other server vendors have to have multiple switching points to achieve this level of service Linear scalablity Our unique architecture delivers the best in class Compute/Network and storage for XenDesktop Deployment Key value 16

15 Key Value proposition of UCS and Citrix XenDesktop on Netapp Storage Linear scalability across chassis, architecture built to scale Rapid provisioning with Cisco UCS Manager makes it easy for scaling from 1 chassis to 2 and so on. B250-M2 with 192 GB of memory is an ideal platform for DV with XenDesktops More memory means more VMs Fully utilizing the next generation Intel 5600 series of processors B200-M2 with 48 GB of memory is an ideal platform for XenApp Simple, resilient and robust Architecture for deploying XenDesktops With Provisioning Server deployments, our 10G network really shines even in a virtual Environment The 10GE network with QoS also benefits the NetApp NAS access 17

16 Scalability results 18

17 Key Observations from the Scale testing Linear scalability going from 1 servers to 8 and then on to 16 without a single change in the RA. We expect similar linear scale 4,8, and 12 chassis. Memory and Storage IOPs are key for successfully hosting Windows 7 desktops 100% virtual environment is a great story for UCS In the past PVS has to be hosted on a bare metal hardware The response time seen with 16 server (or 4 Chassis) scaling with 99.9% desktops below 1.5s is outstanding testimony of UCS platform Network throughput and bandwidth plays a key role in the Citrix XenDesktop environment Streaming model Bootup and Logon storms are major resource hog, system design has to consider those peaks (not averages) 19

18 Take the Risk Out of Getting Started Cisco Desktop Virtualization Solution with Citrix XenDesktop Scalable starter packs + expansion units optimized for VDI-based desktops and hosted shared desktops Cisco UCS Base Pack for Desktop Virtualization 2 Cisco UCS 6100XP Fabric Interconnects 2 Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis 2 Cisco UCS B200 M2 Blade Servers with 48 GB Memory 3 Cisco UCS B250 M2 Blade Servers With 192 GB Memory Cisco UCS Expansion Pack for VDI- Based Desktops 1 Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis 4 Cisco UCS B250 M2 Blade Servers with 192 GB Memory Cisco UCS Expansion Pack for Hosted Shared Desktops 1 Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis 8 Cisco UCS B200 M2 Blade Servers with 48 GB Memory 20
