1 Server Virtualisation with VMware Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 1

2 Virtualisation 1. Virtualisation Overview 2. Impact on Service Providers 3. Virtualisation Technology 4. VMware Infrastructure 5. Challenges and Limitations Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 2

3 1. Virtualisation Overview Defining Virtualisation Virtual Machine Virtual Machine Virtual Machine Ubuntu Server 500 MHz, 1 GB RAM OpenSolaris 1.5 GHz, 2 GB RAM Windows Vista 2 GHz, 2 GB RAM Virtualisation Layer / Hypervisor e.g. VMware ESX or XenServer Physical Hardware 4 GHz, 4 GB RAM, two network cards, etc. Virtualisation is a technology to run multiple virtual computers on the same physical hardware Virtualisation is the separation of a resource or request for a service from the underlying physical delivery of that service. Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 3

4 1. Virtualisation Overview Motivation: Why virtualise? Expensive and underutilised data centres Complex heterogeneous IT infrastructure High IT dependence Downtimes are business critical Stable and flexible data centre desired Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 4

5 2. Impact on Service Providers Advantages of Virtualisation for SaaS Providers Reduces costs Less physical hardware (e.g. servers) Less cooling and power costs Simplifies manageability Easy provision of new servers Flexibly distribute available resources Improved service level control Increase hardware utilisation Virtualisation can have a major impact on profitability Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 5

6 3. Virtualisation Technology Types of Virtualisation Full Virtualisation Paravirtualisation Hardware-assisted Virtualisation Complete simulation of the underlying hardware Only required instructions are handled by the virtualisation software Newer processors provide virtualisation modes Unmodified guest OS Unmodified hardware Modified guest OS Unmodified hardware Unmodifed guest OS Special CPUs required Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 6

7 3. Virtualisation Technology Abstraction Layer: The Hypervisor Abstraction layer Manages physical hardware like a normal operating system Responsible for executing and isolating VMs Partitioning of available resources Applications Operating System Virtual Hardware Virtual Machine Virtualisation Layer / Hypervisor Physical Hardware Virtual Machine VMware ESX/ESXi: Full virtualisation solution with paravirtualisation elements Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 7

8 4. VMware Infrastructure VMware's Data Centre Virtualisation Solution Create a virtual cluster by connecting many ESX hosts via LAN Automated live migration with VMotion and DRS Failsafe environment with VMware HA VirtualCenter Management Server Administrator PC LAN VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM ESX ESX ESX Testing Server Production Server A Production Server B Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 8

9 5. Challenges and Limitations Technical Limitations and Business Aspects Technical limitations No compatibility between virtualisation solutions Live migration only works for selected hardware Less performance than physical machines Business aspects New expensive hardware required Servers, storage, network infrastructure, etc. New trained specialists are necessary Higher licensing costs possible Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 9

11 1. Virtualisation Overview Market Overview Microsoft Windows Server 2008 / Hyper-V Citrix XenServer 5 Based on the Xen virtualisation layer VMware Infrastructure 3 Based on the ESX virtualisation layer Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 11

12 3. Virtualisation Technology Main Components Applications Applications Applications Operating System Operating System Operating System Virtual Hardware Virtual Hardware Virtual Hardware Virtualisation Layer / Hypervisor Physical Hardware Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 12

13 3. Virtualisation Technology Virtual Machine: Processors, Memory and Network Interface Cards A virtual machine is a complete computer system It is just a set of normal files It has its own freely configurable virtual hardware Virtual Processors Applications Operating System Virtual Hardware Virtual Machine Virtualisation Layer / Hypervisor Physical Hardware Virtual Machine Virtual Memory Virtual Network Interface Cards etc. Philipp Heckel, University of Mannheim, 4/12/08 13
