1 White Paper Onboarding VMs to Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud This white paper will explain the process for exporting existing virtual machines from either VMware vsphere or AWS EC2 into Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud (COPC). This process is fairly straightforward and customers can migrate workloads by simply using the inherent tools and capabilities of COPC, VMware, and AWS, respectfully. The assumption is that the reader should have a baseline understanding of the vcenter management console as well as the AWS console and EC2 API command line. In order to provide a baseline understanding of the process to export an existing virtual machine workload to a new Cisco OpenStack Private cloud, this whitepaper will discuss the following topics: Introduction of Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud Supported Images in COPC Export VMware VM to COPC Export AWS EC2 VM to COPC VM format conversion 2015 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

2 Introduction Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud delivers a true public cloud experience for customers on their premises and behind their own firewall. It offers full administrative control and multi-tenancy. It s a production-ready, OpenStack-based solution that Cisco engineers, deploys, upgrades, and remotely operates on the customer s behalf, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This managed OpenStack distribution allows our customers to deliver IT as a service to their LOBs as if the IT department were their own public cloud provider. COPC is truly the OpenStack easy button! After Cisco deploys the new managed OpenStack cloud, the customer is provided with an enhanced Horizon dashboard that includes tools and wizards to ease the onboarding of virtual machines. For customers who are interested in migrating existing virtual machines with Windows or Linux guest operating systems from brownfield virtualized data centers or public cloud, COPC offers an alternative OpenStack platform for suitable workloads. In other words, migration to COPC is an option for any workload supported in OpenStack. In those regards, Cisco cloud migration services or ecosystem partners can provide professional services for the purpose of large scale COPC onboarding. However, in many cases the customer can easily export suitable virtual machine workloads from either VMware or AWS to a managed COPC without assistance. The remainder of this white paper will document the included tools and features that a customer can utilize to export virtual machines from the exiting virtual machine mangers (VMMs) and APIs to OpenStack. Migrating from VMware or AWS virtual machines to a managed OpenStack cloud is compelling for customers who are concerned with their IT department s ability to support the day to day operational aspects of the cloud hypervisor while trying to foster innovation in applications or other high priority aspects of IT. COPC allows IT to focus on using the cloud and rapid delivery of applications versus the operational aspects of the underlying OpenStack controllers, hypervisors, and storage. Supported Images Currently COPC supports the following virtual machine formats and image types available to tenants to either migrate an existing virtual machine, or to spawn a new virtual machine instance in an OpenStack project: ISO (International Standards Organization) image VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) QCOW2 (QEMU Copy On Write) RAW AMI (Amazon Machine Image) VMDK (Virtual Machine Disk) Export VMware to COPC The process of migrating a virtual machine running Microsoft Windows or Linux guest operating systems from VMware to COPC is straightforward. Both vsphere client to an ESXi host and vcenter can be used to export OVF templates of the VM instance from VMware to COPC using VMDK. The following steps explain how to export an existing VMware virtual machine by using vsphere client from an ESXi host or from vcenter and then use the OVF and VMDK files to launch the virtual machine as an instance in COPC using the enhanced dashboard option Cisco and/or its affiliates.

7 Export AWS to COPC The import/export functions of AWS are part of the EC2 API Tools that can be downloaded here: The export function of this tool can only migrate VMs from the Amazon cloud in VMDK or VHD formats aimed at their respective ESXi and Hyper-V or XenServer formats. Currently export only works for Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008 EC2 instances. Amazon Web Services utilizes a custom kernel on their Linux images, which makes exporting the entire virtual machine and importing it directly into COPC impossible. However, there are several workarounds with using other free tools (e.g., Packer) that allow you to import a Windows or Linux VM image into AWS to support exporting it later. Also as a more tedious option, you can create a new instance of the workload on COPC and migrate application and data base data between VMs. Please note that the EC2 API import/export function is free, while the storage that you use on the S3 storage during the migration process in not free. Detailed instructions for using EC2 API CLI to export images here: Basic Instructions: Step (1): Install AWS EC2 API CLI tools on local device (see above) Step (2): Create an Amazon S3 bucket (see link to detailed instructions above) Step (3): Export supported EC2 image (see compatibility above) At a command prompt, type the following command: ec2-create-instance-export-task instance_id e target_environment f disk_image_format -c container_format b s3_bucket instance_id The ID of the instance you want to export. target_environment VMware, Citrix, or Microsoft. disk_image_format VMDK for VMware or VHD for Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix Xen. container_format Optionally set to OVA when exporting to VMware. s3_bucket The name of the Amazon S3 bucket to which you want to export the instance. Step (4): Repeat steps (4-7) in previous VMware to COPC section to upload image into COPC and launch a new running instance from the enhanced dashboard or API Cisco and/or its affiliates.

8 Conversion Once images are exported from the originating hypervisor they can be optionally converted within OpenStack using the qemu-img convert command from the CLI. The qemu-img convert command can do conversion between multiple formats, including qcow2, QED, raw, VDI (VirtualBox), VHD (Hyper-V), and VMDK (VMware). Table 1. qemu-img format strings qcow2 (KVM, Xen) QED (KVM) raw VDI (VirtualBox) VHD (Hyper-V) VMDK (VMware) qcow2 Qed Raw Vdi Vpc vmdk This example will convert a raw image file named centos7.img to a qcow2 image file. $ qemu-img convert -f raw -O qcow2 centos7.img centos7.qcow2 Run the following command to convert a VMDK image file to a raw image file. $ qemu-img convert -f vmdk -O raw centos7.vmdk centos7.img Run the following command to convert a VMDK image file to a qcow2 image file. $ qemu-img convert -f vmdk -O qcow2 centos7.vmdk centos7.qcow2 Unified CLI In order to access the CLI every Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud install comes with pre-installed instances complete with all the tools. These powerful and scriptable command line tools give you complete flexibility to manage all your cloud resources. Conclusion COPC offers tools and support for importing and exporting virtual machine images to and from most hypervisor platforms. In order to make this process easy for our customers, COPC supports both an enhanced dashboard and CLI option for onboarding workloads. The intention is to make migrating or instantiating virtual machines easy, as to allow customers to focus on using their OpenStack clouds and deploying applications rapidly.
