2 Challenges Facing IT and Hosting Providers The Challenge Deliver cloud-scale networks that provide scale, openness and simplicity in a cost-effective architecture User and Device Mobility Multi-vendor Operation to Enable Best of Breed IT Budgets and Move from CAPEX to OPEX 2 Application Mobility Simplicity and Lower Operating Costs

3 Cloud-Scale Data Center: The New Computer Cloud Ready/Virtualization On Demand Provisioning Hardware Independence / High Availability Automation Consolidation High Computational Density Physical Location Consolidation Reducing Data Center Tiers Cloud Scale 10G/40G/100G Low Latency / Low Oversubscription Green Efficient Power Management 3

4 Gartner: 5 trends that will transform the data center The demand for IT as a service, combined with the need to reduce costs, has pushed data centres to the brink of a second transformation Hybrid IT: Perhaps the greatest effect of public cloud computing on IT concerns operations. IT organizations realize that not only do they need to compete with public cloud service providers (CSPs), but also act as intermediaries between internal customers and all IT services (internal or external). Internal clouds: When businesses grow accustomed to consuming IT as a service, IT organizations will be compelled to build internal clouds. Unfortunately, building an internal cloud is hard work and few blueprints exist. Hybrid clouds: Hybrid clouds are connections between two clouds, usually an internal private cloud and an external public cloud User-centric computing: To compete in a global market and retain key employees, organizations often have to accommodate staff who live in remote locations and use personal devices for work. Data center efficiency: Competing with the external cloud requires IT organizations to strive for hyper-efficiency in their data centers. If critical data and applications are to be housed in an internal private cloud, IT organizations must deliver internal IT services in an efficient, cost-effective manner. The new data centre: In 2012, the data centre will continue its transformation from a traditional, virtualised, consolidated and centralised IT infrastructure into a service-oriented and economically efficient internal cloud. 4

5 Open Fabric Architecture Best-of-Breed Data Center Switching Agenda - Extreme Networks Data Center Solution

6 Extreme Networks OpenFabric A Fabric Popular term to describe data center networks High-speed, low-latency, multi-path mesh, and resilient Managed as a single entity May be open or closed (Juniper QFabric) OpenFabric Provides price-performance, interoperability, flexibility, investment protection, and scalability Targeted at cloud data center providers (Internal or External) where infrastructure is cost No vendor lock-in 6

18 VM Mobility Issues Today Network has Zero Visibility into VM Lifecycle Server Admin Initiate Network Admin Virtual Machine Manager Switch Port Config IP: MAC: 00:0A QoS: QP7 ACL: Deny HTTP Switch Port Config None or Disabled Result: When a virtual machine move occurs automatically or initiated by server admin, the network admin has NO visibility into VM location or when the movement occur NIC VM1 IP: MAC: 00:0A Hypervisor NIC Hypervisor The VM moves to a destination switch port that is incorrectly configured to deliver network services to the specific VM 18

19 Extreme Networks XNV Network Visibility into VM Lifecycle Query Location-based VM awareness at the network level for efficient virtual machine mobility Server Admin Initiate Network Admin Virtual Machine Manager VM info Switch Port Config Switch Port Config Virtual Port Profile IP: IP: MAC: 00:0A QoS: QP7 ACL: Deny HTTP XNV -enabled XNV-enabled Switch Port Config None or Disabled Ridgeline : Through XML integration Pull Inventory from virtual machine manager Locate VMs on network switches Show Inventory VM Switch Port Mapping Define Virtual Port Profile (VPP) Assign (VPP) to VMs and Distribute Respond to VM motion occurrences 19 NIC VM1 IP: MAC: 00:0A Hypervisor NIC Hypervisor Result: Both the VM and the Virtual Port Profile moves to the destination switch port. Networklevel visibility into VM movement is achieved to deliver better SLA.
