1 What Is Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track? MICROSOFT PRIVATE CLOUD FAST TRACK is a reference architecture for building private clouds that combines Microsoft software, consolidated guidance, and validated configurations with Cisco technologies including compute, management, network, and storage as well as value-added software components. Built on the Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V technology and Microsoft System Center solutions, Microsoft private cloud offerings can help customers and service providers build dedicated infrastructure as a service (IaaS) environments that transform the way they deliver IT services. Specifically, Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track solutions provide a turnkey approach to delivering scalable, preconfigured, and validated infrastructure platforms for on-premises private cloud implementations. With local control over data and operations, IT can dynamically pool, allocate, secure, and manage resources for agile IaaS. Likewise, business units can deploy line-ofbusiness applications with speed and consistency using self-provisioning (and decommissioning) and automated data center services in a virtualized environment. PRIVATE CLOUD ON YOUR TERMS FASTER DEPLOYMENT Rich features and support make private clouds easy to deploy. End-to-end architectural and deployment guidance Streamlined infrastructure planning due to predefined capacity Enhanced functionality and automation through deep knowledge of infrastructure Integrated management for virtual machine and infrastructure deployment REDUCED RISK Validated configurations mean you can implement with confidence. Tested, end-to-end interoperability for compute, management, network, and storage Predefined, out-of-box solutions based on a common cloud architecture High degree of service availability through automated load balancing CISCO ADVANTAGE Cisco UCS is a next-generation data center platform that unites compute, management, network, storage, and virtualization into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) with Windows Server, Hyper-V, and System Center can help to improve data center efficiency by providing: Compute, network, and virtualization resources unified in one system Reduced costs, improved flexibility, and integrated data center management Cisco Unified Network Services technology can help to improve application efficiency by facilitating: Faster downloads More efficient bandwidth use and server processing Greater security and availability over the network Microsoft and Cisco deliver agile private cloud computing through an interoperable hardware and software platform based on standardized reference architecture. A private cloud from Cisco can greatly reduce time-to-value for virtualization infrastructure investments because it unites shared compute, management, network, and storage resources into a flexible, cost-effective solution based on off-the-shelf components. The reference architecture defines a common set of requirements to help IT consolidate hardware platforms into an environment that is more manageable, better used, and less consumptive.

2 Why EMC and Cisco? EMC AND CISCO ARE COMMITTED TO PRIVATE CLOUD as the next-generation dynamic data center. Together, the partners have designed a single enterprise solution that combines scalable, modular EMC VNX storage systems with innovative Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) blade servers and industry-leading Cisco Nexus switching infrastructure. Through a heterogeneous connectivity model of Fibre Channel (FC), native Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and iscsi, VNX storage systems provide a range of connectivity choices for customers deploying Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track solutions. In total, EMC and Cisco have delivered a robust server, storage, and network connectivity solution to provide the scalable and elastic model that private cloud implementations demand. COMPUTE: The EMC/Cisco solution takes advantage of Windows Server virtualization capabilities by using Cisco UCS blade servers, which are built on the latest Intel CPU technologies and optimized for multitenant server workloads, shared memory, and I/O capacity. High availability and live migration are enabled through Microsoft failover clustering capabilities. Components from CPUs to physical drives are used optimally. Each server is configured with the memory and network adapters optimized for Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization. All Microsoft products are deployed on Cisco UCS servers that use EMC VNX storage to simplify deployment for virtualization. MANAGEMENT: The EMC/Cisco solution takes advantage of Microsoft System Center 2012 capabilities through the use of Cisco UCS management packs. This enables comprehensive management and automation of compute and storage workflows across cloud infrastructures. Cisco offers comprehensive infrastructure management under the control of Microsoft Windows PowerShell through the Cisco UCS PowerTool, an intuitive management tool based on a command-line interface. Operations teams can use the UCS PowerTool to combine the management of storage elements, compute components, and software applications into a custom, end-to-end management solution that is easy to use and script. Cisco provides support for System Center 2012 through the Operations Manager and Orchestrator management packs. NETWORK: EMC and Cisco have created an integrated networking solution based on Cisco Nexus switching technology for dynamic virtual environments to more securely extend data center services to users across locations. Cisco provides resilient, highly available connectivity for virtualized, cloud-enabled, and convergence-ready environments. Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch solutions deliver industry-leading layer 2 switching with 10-gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) performance to address demanding virtual machine environments, while preserving easy management and compact, high-density form factors of up to 48 ports. Cisco converged network solutions within the Nexus environment provide scalable connectivity for 10 GbE, FC, and FCoE. Multiple, redundant vhbas and vnics are implemented within the UCS blade system, providing Hyper-V servers with multiple SAN and Ethernet ports, in addition to advanced failover and load balancing TCP/IP offload engine capabilities. STORAGE: The EMC VNX family delivers industry-leading innovation and enterprise capabilities for file, block, and object storage in a scalable solution that is easy to use. This next-generation storage platform combines powerful and flexible hardware with advanced efficiency, management, and protection software to meet the demands of today s enterprise. EMC VNX storage solutions are used in top-tier data centers to enable storage based on best practices for enterprises of virtually any size. The solutions include software that is designed to simplify storage deployment and management and offer end-to-end data protection. IT can simplify the deployment and administration of consolidated storage environments with automated load balancing across disks, RAID sets, connections, cache, and controllers. Greater reliability can be achieved through hot-swappable and redundant components, providing a highly redundant, scalable system that includes dual controllers, fan trays, and power supplies. Virtual machines can move between physical hosts by using the encapsulation feature of Hyper-V in the storage architecture. Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track Architecture The solution includes EMC and Cisco hardware and architecture that are configurable based on purpose, size, and environment. It also supports the operating system, virtualization, and management capabilities offered by Windows Server 2008 R2, Hyper-V, and System Center. With System Center, IT can proactively manage both physical and virtual systems on-premises or hosted; across applications, data, and security using unified monitoring, common interfaces, and consistent policy. The server fabric consists of similarly configured, swappable server blades that can be replaced for upgrades, repair, and capacity changes. Automated load balancing limits service interruption. COMPUTE NETWORK STORAGE Windows Server Hyper-V decouples applications and data from the hardware layer, enabling workload-independent virtualization and management of the server computing environment. SAN/NAS resources are shared among all servers in the fabric, although they can be dynamically allocated to specific workloads or hosts. Network traffic for applications, clustering, and other services is handled by a grid of high-speed switches (and/or Fibre Channel, iscsi) to provide exceptional I/O bandwidth among the fabric nodes.
