12 Chapter 2: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution Overview Introduction The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution enables a well-run hybrid cloud by bringing new functionality not only to IT organizations, but also to developers, end users, and line-of-business owners. Beyond delivering baseline IaaS, built on a software-defined data center architecture, the solution delivers feature-rich capabilities to expand from IaaS to business-enabling IT as a service (ITaaS). Backup as a service (BaaS) and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) are now policies that users can enable with just a few mouse clicks. End users and developers can quickly access a marketplace of resources for Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, EMC Syncplicity, and Pivotal applications, and can add third-party packages as required. All of these resources can be deployed on private cloud or public cloud services, including VMware vcloud Air, from EMCpowered cloud service providers. The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution uses the best of EMC and VMware products and services, and takes advantage of the strong integration between EMC and VMware technologies to provide the foundation for enabling IaaS on new and existing infrastructure for the hybrid cloud. Figure 1 shows the key components of the EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution. Figure 1. EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud key components For detailed information, refer to EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud 2.5, Federation Software-Defined Data Center Edition: Foundation Infrastructure Solution Guide. For an overview of EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud modular add-on solutions, which provide functionality such as data protection, security management, and application services, refer to Modular add-on components. For detailed information on the add-on solutions, refer to the individual Solution Guides for those solutions. 12

13 Chapter 2: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution Overview EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud features and functionality The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution incorporates the following features and functionality: Automation and self-service provisioning Multitenancy and secure separation Workload-optimized storage Elasticity and service assurance Operational monitoring and management Metering and chargeback Modular add-on components Automation and self-service provisioning The solution provides self-service provisioning of automated cloud services to both users and infrastructure administrators. It uses VMware vcloud Automation Center (vcac), integrated with EMC ViPR software-defined storage and VMware vcns or VMware NSX, to provide the compute, storage, network, and security virtualization platforms for the software-defined data center. Cloud users can request and manage their own applications and compute resources within established operational policies. This can reduce IT service delivery times from days or weeks to minutes. Automation and self-service provisioning features include: Self-service portal Provides a cross-cloud storefront that delivers a catalog of custom-defined services for provisioning workloads based on business and IT policies, as shown in Figure 2 Role-based entitlements Ensure that the self-service portal presents only the virtual machine, application, or service blueprints appropriate to a user s role within the business Resource reservations Allocate resources for use by a specific group and ensure that those resources are inaccessible to other groups Service levels Define the amount and types of resources that a particular service can receive during initial provisioning or as part of configuration changes Blueprints Contain the build specifications and automation policies that define the process for building or reconfiguring compute resources 13

14 Chapter 2: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution Overview Figure 2. EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud self-service portal Multitenancy and secure separation The solution provides the ability to enforce physical and virtual separation for multitenancy, as strongly as the administrator requires. This separation can encompass network, compute, and storage resources to ensure appropriate security and performance for each tenant. The solution supports secure multitenancy through vcac role-based access control (RBAC), which enables vcac roles to be mapped to Microsoft Active Directory groups. The self-service portal shows only the appropriate views, functions, and operations to cloud users, based on their role within the business. Workloadoptimized storage Elasticity and service assurance The solution enables customers to take advantage of the proven benefits of EMC storage in a hybrid cloud environment. Using ViPR storage services, which leverage the capabilities of EMC VNX and EMC VMAX storage systems, the solution provides software-defined, policy-based management of block- and file-based virtual storage. ViPR abstracts the storage configuration and presents it as a single storage control point, enabling cloud administrators to access all heterogeneous storage resources within a data center as if the resources were a single large array. The solution uses the capabilities of vcac and various EMC tools to provide the intelligence and visibility required to proactively ensure service levels in virtual and cloud environments. Infrastructure administrators can add storage, compute, and network resources to their resource pools as needed. Cloud users can select from a range of service levels for compute, storage, and data protection for their applications and can expand the resources of their virtual machines on demand to achieve the service levels they expect for their application workloads. 14

15 Chapter 2: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution Overview Operational monitoring and management The solution features automated monitoring and management capabilities that provide IT administrators with a comprehensive view of the cloud environment to enable smart decision-making for resource provisioning and allocation. These automated capabilities are based on a combination of EMC ViPR Storage Resource Management (SRM), VMware vcenter Log Insight, and VMware vcenter Operations Manager (vc Ops), and use EMC plug-ins for ViPR, VNX, VMAX, and EMC Avamar systems to provide extensive additional storage detail. Cloud administrators can use ViPR SRM to understand and manage the impact that storage has on their applications and to view their storage topologies from application to disk, as shown in Figure 3. Figure 3. EMC ViPR Analytics with VMware vcenter Operations Manager Capacity analytics and what-if scenarios in vc Ops identify over-provisioned resources so they can be right-sized for the most efficient use of virtualized resources. In addition, for centralized logging, infrastructure components can be configured to forward their logs to vcenter Log Insight, which then aggregates the logs from all the disparate sources for analytics and reporting. Metering and chargeback The solution uses VMware IT Business Management Suite (ITBM) to provide cloud administrators with comprehensive metering and cost information across all business groups in the enterprise. ITBM is integrated into the cloud administrator s self-service portal and presents a dashboard overview of the hybrid cloud infrastructure, as shown in Figure 4. 15

16 Chapter 2: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution Overview Figure 4. IT Business Management Suite overview dashboard for hybrid cloud Modular add-on components The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution provides modular add-on components for the following services: Application services This add-on solution leverages VMware vcloud Application Director to optimize application deployment and release management through logical application blueprints in vcac. Users can quickly and easily deploy blueprints for applications and databases such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle, and SAP. Data protection services EMC Avamar and EMC Data Domain systems provide a backup infrastructure that offers features such as variable-length deduplication, compression, and VMware integration. By using VMware vcenter Orchestrator (vco) workflows customized by EMC, administrators can quickly and easily set up multitier data protection policies and enable users to select an appropriate policy when they provision their virtual machines. 16

17 Chapter 2: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Solution Overview Continuous availability A combination of EMC VPLEX virtual storage and VMware vsphere High Availability (HA) provides the ability to federate information across multiple data centers over synchronous distances. With virtual storage and virtual servers working together over distance, the infrastructure can transparently provide load balancing, realtime remote data access, and improved application protection. Disaster recovery This add-on solution enables cloud administrators to select disaster recovery (DR) protection for their applications and virtual machines when they provision their hybrid cloud environment. ViPR automatically places these systems on storage that is protected remotely by EMC RecoverPoint technology. VMware vcenter Site Recovery Manager automates the recovery of all virtual storage and virtual machines. Platform as a service The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution provides an elastic and scalable IaaS foundation for platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) services. Pivotal CF provides a highly available platform that enables application owners to easily deliver and manage applications over the application lifecycle. The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud service offerings enable PaaS administrators to easily provision compute and storage resources on demand to support scalability and growth in their Pivotal CF enterprise PaaS environments. Public cloud services The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution enables IT organizations to broker public cloud services. The solution has been validated with VMware vcloud Air as a public cloud option that administrators and users can access directly from the solution's self-service portal. End users can provision virtual machines while IT administrators can use VMware vcloud Connector to perform virtual machine migration (offline) to vcloud Air from the on-premises component of their hybrid cloud. 17

20 Chapter 3: Pivotal CF PaaS Solution Overview Solution architecture The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution for Pivotal CF PaaS delivers elastic, scalable, multitenant IaaS for Pivotal CF PaaS environments, including: Automated self-service compute and storage provisioning Monitoring and capacity planning Metering and chargeback Figure 5 shows the architecture of both the PaaS and IaaS layers of the solution and the interoperability between the solution components. Figure 5. Solution architecture The infrastructure layer is the fundamental IaaS layer and consists of core infrastructure components and associated management and monitoring services. VMware vcac integration with EMC ViPR and the underlying core infrastructure components provides a service-based IaaS environment. Pivotal CF Operations Manager is the management platform for deployment and operational management of Pivotal CF PaaS. Pivotal CF Operations Manager Director (BOSH) is the component that binds Pivotal CF PaaS with the underlying IaaS layer, which enables rapid, automated provisioning of infrastructure resources for PaaS. The vcac self-service portal is the EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud user interface, where users can select and deploy infrastructure-related services from a service catalog. VMware vc Ops provides monitoring, capacity planning, and optimization capabilities. VMware ITBM provides cloud cost analysis and reporting functionality. 20

21 Chapter 3: Pivotal CF PaaS Solution Overview Pivotal CF PaaS features and functionality Overview Pivotal CF PaaS is a highly available and scalable application platform that supports deployment, scaling, and operation of traditional web and mobile applications designed to take advantage of horizontally scalable architectures and stateless design. Pivotal CF provides heterogeneous application services, supports multiple programming languages and frameworks, and automates the deployment of applications and their back-end services across diverse cloud infrastructures. The design, functionality, scope, and scalability requirements of an application solution determine the Pivotal CF components and services that you need to deploy in the Pivotal CF instance that supports the application. Figure 6 shows an example of how you can use Pivotal CF and Pivotal One services to accommodate the different functional requirements of your application solutions that are hosted on a Pivotal CF instance. Figure 6. Pivotal CF solution example Pivotal CF solution components The Pivotal CF platform is modular; therefore, you can deploy and scale the necessary platform components and Pivotal One services as needed. The Developer Console enables developers to easily manage applications and bind services to them. For demonstration purposes in this solution, we are assuming that your high-level application design requires the following Pivotal CF components and Pivotal One services: Pivotal CF Operations Manager An operations management console for installing, configuring, and managing the Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime environment and Pivotal CF managed services Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime A complete runtime environment for application owners to deploy, manage, and monitor applications 21

22 Chapter 3: Pivotal CF PaaS Solution Overview Pivotal CF MySQL A back-end, multitenant relational database Pivotal CF RabbitMQ A flexible, high-speed messaging system that integrates with heterogeneous application components and systems Pivotal CF modularity Pivotal CF creates a flexible and adaptable PaaS framework. Many options are available to solution architects and developers for designing and developing application solutions, including: Multiple languages Pivotal CF supports most programming languages. Pivotal CF s flexible approach to assembling runtime environments enables developers to use Pivotal CF predefined buildpacks, community-created buildpacks, and custom-built buildpacks. Multiple frameworks Pivotal CF supports several popular programming frameworks including Rails, Sinatra, Spring, Grails, Express, and Lift. New frameworks are continually being added. Multiple services Applications bind to and consume services such as databases and message queues. Pivotal CF supports application services such as MySQL, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Hadoop, and Mobile Services. Pivotal CF also provides easy binding and management of custom-built services. Multiple clouds Pivotal CF is designed to run on any type of underlying cloud infrastructure. This means that it supports VMware vsphere and VMware vcloud Air as well as environments such as OpenStack, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Compute Engine. Public, private, hybrid Pivotal CF minimizes the risk of vendor lock-in by supporting multiple deployment options. For example, as shown in Figure 7, after application development and integration testing, a developer could push an application to a QA space on a Pivotal CF instance hosted on VMware vcloud Air for further QA testing. On completion of QA testing, the developer could push the application to an instance of Pivotal CF hosted on EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud in an on-premises production environment. Migration from one cloud environment to another requires no recoding or environment modifications. 22

23 Chapter 3: Pivotal CF PaaS Solution Overview Figure 7. Deploying applications to a choice of clouds Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime delivers a dynamic, highly available platform to enable application owners to easily push, scale, and maintain applications over their lifecycle. Figure 8 shows the main components of the Elastic Runtime environment. Figure 8. Pivotal CF Elastic Runtime logical architecture 23

24 Chapter 3: Pivotal CF PaaS Solution Overview The Dynamic Router provides an entry point into the Elastic Runtime environment. It receives all requests and determines the proper endpoint to service the requests. The Cloud Controller manages the Elastic Runtime environment. It is responsible for creating and maintaining environment structures such as organizations, spaces, and users, and for distributing applications into containers. Application developers issue application lifecycle requests, such as deploying an application from the cf command line interface, by running a push command. After the developer submits the command, the application deployment process performs the following tasks: Uploads and stores the application files Examines and stores the application metadata Creates a droplet (Cloud Foundry unit of execution) for the application Assigns an appropriate Droplet Execution Agent (DEA) to run the droplet Starts the application Deployed applications receive built-in services for horizontal scaling, load balancing, DNS, automated health management, and logging. These built-in services dramatically reduce the number of vendors and integrations required for continuous software delivery. Pivotal CF uses a flexible approach called buildpacks to dynamically assemble and configure a complete runtime environment for executing a particular class of applications. Instead of specifying how to run applications, developers can rely on buildpacks to detect, download, and configure the appropriate runtimes, containers, and libraries. Because buildpacks are extensible to most modern runtimes and frameworks running on Linux, enterprises can deploy applications written in almost any language to Pivotal CF. Buildpacks for Java, Ruby, Node, and Go are part of a broad buildpack provider ecosystem that ensures constant updates and maintenance for virtually any language. Pivotal CF components communicate with each other through a high-speed messaging infrastructure and are monitored by a Health Manager. Pivotal One services Pivotal CF provides middleware capabilities, such as databases and message queues, to applications as services. Pivotal One services include services designed for traditional web and mobile application development, for software development and integration, and for big data solutions. Pivotal One services support automatic binding and integration with applications running on the Pivotal CF platform. You can easily deploy and bind prepackaged services to your application by using the Pivotal CF Operations Manager GUI, as described in Chapter 4: Deploying and 24

25 Third-party SaaS services Chapter 3: Pivotal CF PaaS Solution Overview Managing Pivotal CF Environments. The services and applications you need to deploy depend on the design and requirements of your application solution. The prepackaged services provided by the Pivotal One platform include: Pivotal CF MySQL service Provisions multitenant, single-instance MySQL databases suitable for rapid application development and testing. Pivotal CF RabbitMQ service Increases application speed, scalability, and reliability by providing asynchronous messaging to applications running on the Pivotal CF platform. The RabbitMQ service uses the Service Broker to integrate with applications hosted on the Pivotal CF platform and with applications outside Pivotal CF. Pivotal CF HD service Builds, manages, and scales Hadoop as a natively integrated Pivotal CF service. When an application binds to the Pivotal CF HD service, through the Service Broker, the application is automatically assigned capacity in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), a database in HAWQ, and a resource queue in YARN. This reduces development cycle time by eliminating common Hadoop development complexities around deployment, security, networking, and resource management. Application services hosted on a Pivotal CF instance can make use of external resources that are provided as a service. For example, you can use the Service Broker to bind applications to third-party services such as hosted databases (MongoDB from MongoLab, MySQL from ClearDB, and RedisDB from Redis Labs), messaging systems (SendGrid, IronMQ, CloudAMPQ), and application monitoring solutions (New Relic), as shown in Figure 9. The Service Broker advertises a catalog of service offerings and service plans to Pivotal CF and passes function calls to create, delete, bind, or unbind the service. 25

26 Chapter 3: Pivotal CF PaaS Solution Overview Figure 9. Binding third-party SaaS components to Pivotal CF Pivotal Web Services Marketplace provides users with self-service, on-demand provisioning of third-party services, as shown in Figure 10. Developers can purchase third-party services and bind them to applications hosted on a Pivotal CF instance either from the Marketplace GUI or by using the Service Broker via the cf command line interface. 26

29 Chapter 4: Deploying and Managing Pivotal CF Environments Chapter 4 Deploying and Managing Pivotal CF Environments This chapter presents the following topics: Introduction Deploying Pivotal CF with Pivotal CF Operations Manager Removing Pivotal CF components

30 Chapter 4: Deploying and Managing Pivotal CF Environments Introduction Pivotal CF Operations Manager is deployed as a virtual appliance and provides an easy-to-use GUI for installing and configuring Pivotal CF and Pivotal CF managed services. Pivotal CF Operations Manager enables direct PaaS integration with the underlying IaaS and is used to deploy new Pivotal CF PaaS components and services and to update existing ones. In addition, Pivotal CF Operations Manager enables easy vertical and horizontal scalability of Elastic Runtime and Pivotal One services. After you deploy the Pivotal CF Operations Manager appliance, you can deploy a production instance of the Pivotal CF platform. You can then use the Pivotal Ops Manager web interface to configure and deploy individual Pivotal CF components. To log in to the web interface, use the IP address of the deployed Pivotal CF Operations Manager appliance, as shown in Figure 11. Figure 11. Pivotal CF Operations Manager login page Deploying Pivotal CF with Pivotal CF Operations Manager Overview For demonstration purposes, we are assuming that your high-level application design requires the following Pivotal CF components: Operations Manager Director for VMware vsphere, Elastic Runtime, MySQL, and RabbitMQ. The main steps required to deploy the components are as follows: 1. Import the required Pivotal CF components. 2. Configure Operations Manager Director for VMware vsphere. 30

31 3. Add and configure Elastic Runtime. 4. Add and configure MySQL. 5. Deploy the Pivotal CF instance. 6. Add and configure RabbitMQ. Chapter 4: Deploying and Managing Pivotal CF Environments The process described in this chapter assumes that the base IaaS infrastructure is already in place, and that the deployment prerequisites described in the Pivotal documentation have been fulfilled. For information on provisioning additional infrastructure services, refer to Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS. Note: This solution uses v of Pivotal CF and associated components. Importing the required Pivotal CF components To import the necessary Pivotal CF components, first download the components from the Pivotal Network and then use the Import a Product link under Available Products, shown in Figure 12, to import the products into Pivotal CF Operations Manager. Figure 12. Importing CF components Pivotal CF Operations Manager adds each component you import to the Available Products list. Configuring Operations Manager Director for vsphere The Pivotal CF core infrastructure is provisioned by using the EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud provisioning services and is configured as a vsphere resource that is managed by vcenter Server. Operations Manager Director is the component that binds Pivotal CF PaaS with the underlying IaaS layer. 31

32 Chapter 4: Deploying and Managing Pivotal CF Environments Before you deploy a Pivotal CF instance that uses EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud infrastructure resources, you must configure Operations Manager Director with the core infrastructure components and resources required by the other Pivotal CF platform components and services that you are deploying in the Pivotal CF instance. To configure Operations Manager Director: 1. Click the Operations Manager Director for VMware vsphere tile on the Installation Dashboard, as shown in Figure 13. Figure 13. Pivotal Ops Manager Installation Dashboard 2. On the infrastructure configuration page, shown in Figure 14, specify the vsphere infrastructure details for the new Pivotal CF instance. The required details include the vcenter Server IP address and credentials; the names of the network, datacenter, cluster, and datastore; and the NTP and networking details. 32

33 Chapter 4: Deploying and Managing Pivotal CF Environments Figure 14. Configuring the core infrastructure 3. If required, depending on the scale of the Pivotal CF instance, increase the Operations Manager Director resources by changing the relevant parameters on the Resource sizes tab, as shown in Figure 15. Figure 15. Configuring Operations Manager Director resources 4. Save the configuration information.

43 Chapter 5: Sizing and Scaling Pivotal CF Environments Chapter 5 Sizing and Scaling Pivotal CF Environments This chapter presents the following topics: Overview Assessing the base deployment resource requirements Scaling the Pivotal CF environment

44 Chapter 5: Sizing and Scaling Pivotal CF Environments Overview Pivotal CF Operations Manager enables you to tailor and deploy an elastic, modular, and scalable development environment and the services required to build and run your application solutions. Application functionality and design dictates the Pivotal CF components and services that you must implement as part of a Pivotal CF instance deployment. Defining and sizing the underlying infrastructure resources, however, is a much greater challenge, due, in particular, to the often-rapid expansion of applications and associated services and the highly dynamic nature of application and service requirements. Assessing the base deployment resource requirements Infrastructure resource requirements depend on the load and the number of applications hosted on the Pivotal CF platform. Any assessment of the resource requirements for a Pivotal CF environment should include the following considerations: Base Pivotal CF instance resources Application resources Service resources The base Pivotal CF instance resources should accommodate the CPU, RAM, and storage requirements of the following components: Core platform components Operations Manager and Elastic Runtime Pivotal One services MySQL, RabbitMQ, and HD Note: Which Pivotal One services you choose to deploy depends on the design and functionality of your application solution. To determine the minimum requirements for a Pivotal CF instance before deployment: 1. In Pivotal CF Operations Manager, select the Resource sizes option for each component in turn, as shown in Figure 25, to get the default resource values for the components. These default values correspond to the minimum resource requirements for the components. 44

45 Chapter 5: Sizing and Scaling Pivotal CF Environments Figure 25. Selecting the Resource sizes option 2. Calculate the sum of the requirements for all the components, as shown in the sample resource summary in Table 1. Table 1. Sample resource summary Component Virtual machines CPUs RAM (MB) Ephemeral disk (MB) Persistent disk (MB) Operations Manager 1 4 3,072 16,384 20,480 Elastic Runtime , , ,688 MySQL ,384 54, ,000 RabbitMQ ,720 24,576 26,624 Total , , ,792 Scaling the Pivotal CF environment Pivotal CF components support both vertical and horizontal scaling. For vertical scaling, you add more CPU, memory, and disk space. For horizontal scaling, you add more virtual instances of the Pivotal CF components. To scale a component, change the relevant Resource sizes values in Pivotal CF Operations Manager and save the new configuration. This operation is nondisruptive. Further scaling of the platform resources and components depends on the increase in demand for: Application resources Each application hosted on the Pivotal CF platform requires: The amount of RAM required by the application CPU capacity, which depends on the application s complexity factor Sufficient application instances to accommodate user load and response-time expectations 45

46 Chapter 5: Sizing and Scaling Pivotal CF Environments Service resources Each service used by applications hosted on the Pivotal CF platform requires: The amount of RAM required by the service CPU capacity sufficient to accommodate peak loads, based on usage patterns and concurrency demands The amount of data hosted by a data service for example, MySQL Sufficient service instances to accommodate the user load and response-time expectations While summarizing the base resource requirement for an initial platform deployment is straightforward, the application and service requirements are dynamic in nature, with many dependencies. Therefore, those requirements are more difficult to uniformly define or predict. In addition, while the IaaS-agnostic nature of Pivotal CF is one advantage of the platform, it also presents challenges in relation to adequately monitoring and planning the capacity of the underlying IaaS platform to support scaling and rapid expansion of applications and associated services. EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud, as the IaaS component of this solution, supports the kind of elastic, nondisruptive, and dynamic scaling of infrastructure resources that the Pivotal CF platform requires. EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud enables you to tailor, provision, and scale the underlying infrastructure, on demand, to provide the resources needed to accommodate Pivotal CF platform growth as you scale your applications. For information on using EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud to monitor, plan, and provision infrastructure resources for your Pivotal CF environment, refer to Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS. 46

47 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Chapter 6 Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS This chapter presents the following topics: Overview Storage provisioning services Monitoring and capacity planning Metering and chargeback

48 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Overview The use cases in this chapter provide an overview of some of the more common tasks related to storage provisioning, capacity planning, and cost monitoring for a Pivotal CF PaaS environment deployed on an EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud. The provisioning use case demonstrates the automated provisioning capabilities of EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud that PaaS administrators can leverage to support PaaS expansion. The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud provisioning services enable PaaS administrators to rapidly deploy and provision storage resources on demand. The processes are simple and straightforward select the relevant service in the selfservice portal and then follow the instructions in the service wizard. The capacity planning use case focuses on the crucial function of capacity forecasting and planning for Pivotal CF PaaS environments. PaaS platforms deployed in a cloud environment require flexible metering and costing models to help administrators better manage demand, budget for the future, and view the capital and operating costs of all resources in the environment. The VMware ITBM component of the solution provides these capabilities. The metering and costing use cases in this chapter present examples of the detailed information that administrators can access. Storage provisioning services Overview Storage resources for a Pivotal CF deployment are presented to Pivotal Operations Manager Director as vsphere datastores that are assigned to vsphere clusters. If more storage resources are required for Pivotal CF services, components, or applications that are deployed on a Pivotal CF instance, the PaaS administrator can use the EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud s storage services to provision additional datastores. The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud s Provision Cloud Storage service, which the PaaS administrator uses to provision new datastores, is based on a service blueprint that was created by using the Advanced Service Designer in vcac. The ViPR provisioning workflows, which support the service, were created with vco and included in the blueprint. Use case: Provisioning new datastores This use case demonstrates how a PaaS administrator can use the EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud s Provision Cloud Storage service to provision ViPR software-defined storage (block or file) to accommodate the extension of Pivotal CF services or components. After provisioning a new datastore, the PaaS administrator can use Pivotal Operations Manager Director to make the datastore resources available to the Pivotal CF instance. The storage provisioning request requires minimal user input: only the datastore type, the datastore size, the name of the vcenter cluster that hosts the Pivotal CF instance, and the required storage tier. The user selects most of these inputs from 48

49 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS prepopulated lists whose items are determined by the cluster resources available in vcenter Server and the virtual pools available in ViPR. To provision a new datastore for a Pivotal CF instance, follow these steps: 1. In the self-service portal, select Provision Cloud Storage from the Storage Services catalog, as shown in Figure 26. Figure 26. Starting the storage provisioning request process 2. Provide a short description and reason for the provisioning request, type your password, and then click Next. 3. Select the vcenter cluster that hosts the Pivotal CF instance for which you want to provision the new datastore, as shown in Figure 27, and then click Next. Figure 27. Selecting the relevant vcenter cluster 4. Select the type of datastore to provision, and then click Next. In this case, select VMFS, as shown in Figure 28. The Storage Type option lists the types of datastore that can be provisioned, based on the types of storage present in the underlying infrastructure. Note: A VMFS datastore type requires block storage; an NFS datastore requires file storage. 49

50 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Figure 28. Selecting the required storage type 5. Select the storage tier offering from which you want to provision the new datastore, and then click Next. The list of available tiers depends on the type of datastore selected in the previous step and the virtual pools of that type that are available from the ViPR virtual array. In this case, a single VMFS-based virtual pool is available, so select that option, as shown in Figure 29. Note: Each item in the ViPR storage tier list shows the available capacity for that tier. Figure 29. Selecting the required storage tier 6. Specify the size for the new datastore, as shown in Figure

51 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Figure 30. Specifying the datastore size 7. Click Submit. The Provision Cloud Storage service provisions the new datastore based on your inputs. 8. Use Pivotal Operations Manager Director to make the new datastore resources available to the Pivotal CF instance, as shown in Figure 31. Figure 31. Adding the new datastore resources to the Pivotal CF instance 51

52 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Monitoring and capacity planning Overview Monitoring The vcenter Operations Management Suite, which includes vc Ops, offers many features and functions for delivering quality of service, operational efficiency, and continuous compliance for your hybrid cloud infrastructure and business-critical applications. vc Ops provides pre-built and configurable dashboards that contribute to an integrated approach to realtime monitoring and management of performance, capacity, and configuration. Infrastructure maintenance and operations teams need the end-to-end visibility and intelligence provided by vc Ops to make fast, informed operational decisions to proactively ensure service levels in cloud environments. They need to promptly determine the root cause of performance problems, optimize capacity in real time, and maintain compliance in a dynamic environment of constant change. vc Ops uses analytics to provide the intelligence and visibility needed to do this. vc Ops monitoring capabilities help PaaS administrators to achieve the following goals: Eliminate or significantly reduce manual problem solving Proactively manage core service and cloud infrastructure performance, and use infrastructure resources optimally Provision proactive warnings to highlight potential performance issues before they affect users Capacity forecasting and planning vc Ops capacity planning functions help you to predict the impact on underlying infrastructure of new Pivotal CF deployments or of upgrading an existing Pivotal CF instance with new services. Forecasting capacity risks in vc Ops involves creating what-if scenarios to examine the demand and supply of resources in the cloud infrastructure and predict the potential impact of growth. A what-if scenario is a supposition about how infrastructure capacity and load might change if certain conditions are changed, without actually applying the changes to your infrastructure. If you implement a scenario, you know in advance what your capacity requirements are. Capacity what-if scenarios assess the effect of adding or removing ESX hosts, storage, or virtual machines in the environment. To create a what-if scenario, you can use models and profiles based on current resource consumption in the existing environment. Alternatively, you can manually define amounts of CPU, RAM, storage, and utilization in a new virtual machine profile. 52

53 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Use case: Adding DEA instances Overview A DEA is the component that manages the lifecycle of applications hosted on Pivotal CF instances. With an increase in the number of applications hosted on a Pivotal CF instance, a PaaS administrator may need to increase the number of DEA instances on the Pivotal CF instance to accommodate the increased demand for staging applications. Deploying new services and related components on a Pivotal CF platform is fast and easy. The PaaS administrator can change resource parameters for components of the Elastic Runtime environment by specifying the changes on the Resource sizes page in the Pivotal CF Operations Manager interface. Saving and applying the changes results in rapid provisioning of the required virtual machines and the component instances in them. For example, Figure 32 shows the option for changing the number of DEA instances in a Pivotal CF instance. Figure 32. Changing the number of DEA instances on a Pivotal CF instance This use case describes the following capacity-planning scenario: 1. You have a request to deploy an additional 45 DEA instances in an existing Pivotal CF instance. 2. You plan to purchase blade servers compliant with a certain specification. 3. You want to know if you can deploy 25 more DEA instances in addition to the requested 45 instances. Creating virtual machine what-if scenarios To create a virtual machine what-if scenario, follow these steps: 1. In vcenter Operations Manager, start the What-if scenario wizard. 2. Select the required scenario type. When you create a virtual machine scenario, you can use the profile of existing virtual machines as models, as shown in Figure 33. Alternatively, you can manually define a new virtual machine profile. For this use case, we created a new virtual machine profile. This option enables you to specify the virtual machines in detail and to include and predict specific resource utilizations, reservations, and limits to get as accurate a projection as possible. 53

54 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Figure 33. Selecting a virtual machine scenario type 3. Specify the virtual machine count and the detailed configuration for the virtual machines. Include the projected capacity utilization for each item, as shown in Figure 34. Figure 34. Specifying the configuration and projected utilization of the new virtual machines 54

55 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS 4. When you have finished specifying the two use-case scenarios, compare the results to the actual capacity of your environment to determine what to do next. Figure 35 shows that the use-case environment has insufficient CPU and RAM resources for either of the planned deployments and that new hardware must be purchased and provisioned. Figure 35. Capacity summary showing insufficient hardware resources Creating hardware change what-if scenarios Before you purchase and provision new hardware resources, you can create hardware change scenarios to determine the effect of adding, removing, or updating hardware capacity in a vsphere cluster. The scenarios can model changes to hosts and datastores, as shown in Figure 36 and Figure 37. Figure 36. Configuring the host population 55

56 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Figure 37. Configuring the datastore population The results for each scenario compare the actual current capacity to the expected capacity if you apply the specified changes. You can also compare the effects of multiple virtual machine scenarios and hardware change scenarios to view how different numbers of virtual machines and different amounts of hardware will affect your environment, as shown in Figure 38. Each column shows how an individual change affects resources in the environment. Figure 38. Compared scenarios 56

57 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS In addition, you can combine scenarios to see their cumulative effect. For example, Figure 39 shows the cumulative effect of the scenarios that are individually represented in Figure 38 that is, the cumulative effect of adding 70 virtual machines and deploying the hardware specified in the hardware change scenario. Figure 39. Combined scenarios Metering and chargeback Overview The EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution uses VMware ITBM to provide comprehensive metering and cost information across physical and virtual resources. Besides storage, compute, and networking resources, you can include and configure other factors that affect the overall cost of your cloud environment for example, OS licensing, maintenance, labor, and facilities. ITBM is integrated with the EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud self-service portal and provides PaaS administrators with a dashboard overview of the cost of their hybrid cloud infrastructure, as shown in Figure

58 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Figure 40. Total Cloud Cost dashboard The cluster cost and storage cost use cases present examples of the predefined cost overviews that are available for your EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud environment. For more information, refer to EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud 2.5, Federation Software- Defined Data Center Edition: Foundation Infrastructure Solution Guide. Use case: Getting cluster cost information A dedicated vsphere cluster, with associated vsphere hosts and datastores, provides the infrastructure resources that are consumed by a Pivotal CF instance and by the applications that the instance hosts. ITBM provides the following information about the cluster, as shown in Figure 41: Number of vsphere hosts in the vcenter cluster and the number of virtual machines on each host CPU and RAM capacity of the vcenter cluster and CPU and RAM capacity utilization Overall cost of the compute resources provided by the vcenter cluster Cluster cost by virtual machine 58

59 Chapter 6: Use Cases: EMC Enterprise Hybrid Cloud IaaS Figure 41. vsphere cluster cost overview Use case: Getting storage cost information For the storage resources consumed by a Pivotal CF instance, ITBM provides the following information, as shown in Figure 42: Storage type Monthly cost per GB of each datastore Total monthly cost of each datastore Figure 42.
