3 Unlock the power of virtualization with F5 and ware solutions The benefits of virtualization with ware are clear. However many organizations continue to expect more from their virtualization initiatives, including: Tighter server consolidation Simplified management Higher application performance Increased network agility Greater operational efficiency and automation Greater virtual desktop security Improved virtual desktop user experience The combination of F5 and ware unlocks new opportunities to meet these demands. F5 and ware have worked closely to integrate solutions, such as: vsphere vcenter Server vcenter AppSpeed vcenter Site Recovery Manager ware View F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager Virtual Edition (LTM VE) F5 BIG-IP Global Traffic Manager (GTM) F5 BIG-IP Optimization Module (WOM) F5 ARX File Virtualization Solution
4 Data Center Efficiency Reduce hardware, power, and facility costs THE CHALLENGE One of the most compelling advantages of virtualization is building greater efficiency. Within data centers of all sizes, server consolidation delivers reductions in physical server infrastructure and power consumption. Organizations commonly see consolidation rates of 10 times or more. But what if it were possible to increase your consolidation rates even further? Certain computational transactions like SSL are more efficiently performed in ASICs than general-purpose CPUs. This opens the door to even greater server consolidation rates, often up to 60 percent greater than server virtualization alone. But consolidation will only get you so far in meeting the growing expectations of your IT organization. There are also more and more demands on your applications that affect performance and availability. However, it is possible to simultaneously improve the performance and availability of your virtualized applications even while consolidating your servers. Optimizing application traffic using techniques like load balancing, acceleration, transformation, rate shaping, and connection persistence can yield great improvements in application performance and availability. Organizations often face new DK (Virtual Machine Disk Format) storage challenges as they move forward with their virtualization initiatives. As a result, file management becomes more complex, storage bottlenecks appear, and storage costs increase. Key benefits Improve server consolidation by offloading CPU-intensive tasks from the servers Increase performance and availability by optimizing application traffic Optimize file storage infrastructure and reduce costs
5 ware ESX ESX SERVER NFS CLIENT BIG-IP LTM ware ESX ESX SERVER ARX F5 SOLUTION BENEFITS: - INCREASED SERVER CONSOLIDATION - IMPROVED PERFORMANCE & AVAILABILITY - OPTIMIZED DK FILE STORAGE ware ESX ESX SERVER NFS THE SOLUTION BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager optimizes connections, routes traffic, and balances loads across virtual machines (s), offloading many of the functions that create CPU and memory strain. Offloading these functions to a purpose-built appliance can free up to 40 percent 1 of server CPU and memory resources, creating a 60 percent increase in guest density on the same host. This enables servers to operate more efficiently and frees up server capacity. Availability gains from BIG-IP LTM apply equally well to virtual servers. They include: Application acceleration up to 3X Improved security for applications and data Reduced bandwidth usage Full control of traffic to handle changing business, infrastructure, and application demands Organizations can address their virtualization storage challenges by taking advantage of intelligent file virtualization with the F5 ARX series. ARX abstracts the virtual file location from the physical storage location. Enabling transparent and automated policy-based allocation of files across different storage tiers. 1 F5 tests performed on Microsoft Exchange and vsphere 4 yielded a 40% reduction in CPU utilization from BIG-IP LTM, thus an equivalent 60% increase in guest density on the same host. See a detailed overview of the test plan and results.
6 Long Distance vmotion Linking data centers across the city or thousands of miles apart THE CHALLENGE ware vmotion enables users to move an entire running virtual machine from one server to another and with ware Storage vmotion, you can migrate DK files across storage arrays. However, getting reliable and rapid performance of vmotion and Storage vmotion events typically requires their movement to be restricted within a single local vcenter Server cluster and a single layer 2 broadcast domain. Their performance is naturally sensitive to poor network conditions like latency and packet loss, which historically prevented long distance vmotion events. Furthermore the cost and complexity of encrypting vmotion traffic over the WAN adds to the difficulty. Key benefits Application migration between data centers Disaster avoidance Capacity expansion
7 CLIENT DATA CENTER 1 BIG-IP GTM DATA CENTER 2 BIG-IP LTM WAN OPTIMIZATION BIG-IP LTM ware ESX ware ESX VSPHERE OTION VSPHERE STORAGE OTION STORAGE THE SOLUTION F5 and ware have developed a complete solution for running vmotion and Storage vmotion events together, between vsphere environments and over long distances. The solution components enable vmotion migration between data centers without downtime or user disruption. Key solution components include: Encryption and compression of vmotion traffic between sites using BIG-IP LTM isessions feature Byte-level data deduplication of vmotion traffic between sites using BIG-IP WAN Optimization Module Client traffic management with BIG-IP LTM to direct user traffic to the correct Data center traffic management with BIG-IP GTM One example is a Windows Server guest vmotion event across a 622 Mbps link with 40 milliseconds of round-trip time and zero packet loss, which would normally take more than five minutes to complete. With BIG-IP WAN Optimization Module it takes less than 30 seconds. The worse the WAN conditions, the greater the potential improvement. And when the vmotion event acceleration is combined with dynamic global and traffic management, newly migrated s are recognized quickly, without disrupting existing user sessions.
8 Data Center Automation Automate your Application Delivery Network THE CHALLENGE Unexpected traffic spikes can wreak havoc on application availability. Yet providing server capacity to cover all conceivable scenarios is simply too expensive. Fortunately vsphere simplifies provisioning new s on demand. In order for these newly provisioned virtual machines to properly integrate into the application network and assist in improving availability, the network must typically be manually adjusted. This function is not handled by virtualization solutions, and as a result it can take IT staff additional time to respond. In addition, as the number of virtual machines increases, so can the amount of time required to manage them. IT staff are often required to perform routine network management and maintenance tasks that could otherwise be automated. Key benefits Improve network responsiveness to the virtualized applications Reduce management complexity in the virtualized environment Improve IT staff efficiency with automation Minimize manual configuration errors
9 ARX4000 MONITORING & MANAGEMENT CLIENTS CLIENTS icontrol API BIG-IP LTM WARE VCENTER SERVER APP SERVER VIRTUALIZATION ware ESX ware ESX ware ESX APP SERVER APP SERVER APP SERVER STORAGE VIRTUALIZATION ARX NFS NFS NFS THE SOLUTION F5 solutions greatly simplify network deployment, management, and maintenance tasks through automation. Specifically, BIG-IP LTM integrates with vcenter via the F5 icontrol API to receive instructions that enable it to adjust network traffic in response to changing application conditions. When new virtual machines are provisioned by vcenter, BIG-IP LTM can automatically add those new servers to its load balancing pool and can direct traffic to them. BIG-IP LTM waits until the s are responsive before sending traffic. At the same time, BIG-IP GTM knows when virtual machines or entire data centers are overloaded or unavailable and reroutes traffic accordingly. BIG IP LTM and GTM can respond to fluctuating traffic without the need for manual intervention. Similarly, BIG-IP LTM can identify and distinguish between different classes of users. For example, requests from high-priority users can be served up from a higher performance pool. This and other similar functions maximize the performance and availability of physical and virtual application resources.
10 Business Continuity Protect your business and minimize application downtime THE CHALLENGE Businesses cannot afford to be without their core applications and web-based services. In traditional IT environments, it is difficult to move an application from one data center to another or even from one server to another. To compensate, many companies install more hardware, which also increases the cost. Virtualization dramatically improves failover and disaster recovery (DR) capabilities by making packaged application files easy to clone, migrate, and reboot. Solutions like ware vcenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) further simplify the process of planning, testing, and recovering a single application or an entire virtualized infrastructure. Despite the automation of SRM, the DNS server must be manually configured to re-route incoming traffic to the new site. It is difficult to fully automate the process, and can result in delays and mistakes during failover. Because application traffic must be redirected in after DR events, many organizations rely on IT staff to manually implement the steps contained in their pre-defined DR run books. Under stress, such as in a true DR scenario, any manual process can be subject to error. Key benefits Load balance across data centers Maximize application availability and minimize the impact of downtime Increase the speed of large data transfers over the WAN
11 CLIENT SITE 1 (PRIMARY) SITE 2 (BACK-UP) ROUTER BIG-IP GTM BIG-IP GTM ROUTER BIG-IP LTM APPLICATION DELIVERY SYNCHRONIZATION BIG-IP LTM WARE VCENTER SITE RECOVERY MANAGER ware ESX ware ESX REPLICATION WARE VCENTER SITE RECOVERY MANAGER ware ESX ware ESX DATA REPLICATION BIG-IP LTM SUPPORTS DISASTER RECOVERY - AT THE DATA CENTER LEVEL - AT THE SERVER LEVEL - AT THE VIRTUAL MACHINE LEVEL THE SOLUTION F5 BIG-IP Global Traffic Manager offers holistic control of global traffic to ensure maximum availability and performance of applications running across multiple data centers. It reacts based on predefined business policies and varying infrastructure conditions. The integration of BIG-IP GTM and ware SRM provides a complete solution for automated disaster recovery between two data centers, or to the cloud. In the event of disaster, SRM automatically orchestrates the failover of guests and virtual infrastructure between the two sites, while BIG-IP GTM redirects all incoming client application traffic to the secondary site. BIG-IP GTM and SRM are easily integrated via the F5 icontrol API. Because BIG-IP GTM sits in both the source and target sites, failover can happen automatically even if one device suddenly disappears. Furthermore, while waiting for suspended s to come online, BIG-IP GTM can respond back to clients with a custom HTML page. In addition, F5 BIG-IP WAN Optimization Module improves the transfer of data over the WAN during a failover. This module enables large volumes of data to be transferred from a source to a target data center quickly using compression and deduplication. BIG-IP WAN Optimization Module encrypts traffic before transmission and decreases bandwidth requirements.
12 Virtual Desktops Provide a consistent, secure user experience with high application availability THE CHALLENGE Over recent years, many organizations have elected to replace their desktop PCs with simple client terminals and give users access to centrally stored applications and services over the LAN or WAN. In addition to the hardware cost savings, virtual desktop solutions such as ware View are easier and more cost-effective to manage and secure. For such a solution to succeed however, users expect the same performance from virtual desktops as physical desktops. In addition, scaling the centralized connection servers can be expensive. Finally, organizations need to ensure that the connections are secure, but without sacrificing simplicity of the user s access and authentication experience. Key benefits Simplify secure access with single sign-on Deliver a high performance virtual desktop experience to users Reduce the cost for large deployments by minimizing the number of servers required Ensure network and application security
13 BRANCH OFFICE VCENTER SERVER CLIENT VDM CONNECTION SERVERS DMZ VIRTUAL DESKTOPS REMOTE CLIENT BIG-IP LTM BIG-IP EDGE GATEWAY ware ESX ACTIVE DIRECTORY LOCAL CLIENT THE SOLUTION F5 BIG-IP LTM delivers load balancing, health monitoring, rate shaping, and server resource offloading for the virtual desktop connection servers. This provides high performance SSL termination and compression, and improves the overall solution s scalability. Additionally F5 BIG-IP Edge Gateway addresses security challenges by enabling secure remote access using high speed SSL everywhere and integration with authentication and directory services. Unlike many SSL VPN solutions, F5 can securely transport the PCoIP protocol without degrading its performance. Finally, BIG-IP Edge Gateway streamlines the authentication process into a single quick and easy step for users by ensuring high endpoint security prior to login.
14 Application Virtualization Ensure high performance for applications THE CHALLENGE Enterprise applications, such as Microsoft Exchange, OCS, SharePoint, SAP, and Oracle are critical for day-to-day operations. But they can also be a source of inefficiency. In traditional IT environments, these applications can require vast numbers of servers, not all of which are fully utilized. Virtualization can reduce some of this inefficiency through server consolidation, but virtualization technologies are primarily focused on the hardware and operating system layers not the applications layer. Therefore, when organizations decide to pursue a virtualization strategy, they need to take steps to ensure that the new environment does not adversely impact application performance. Key benefits Reduce the risks associated with implementing an application virtualization strategy Minimize hardware and power costs by maximizing the density of virtual machines Optimize performance and application availability for users Maximize the return on investment of a virtualization strategy
15 BIG-IP GTM HIGH PERFORMANCE WEB ACCELERATION BIG-IP LTM + WEBACCELERATOR MODULE PRE-DEFINED APPLICATION CONFIGURATION OPTIONS - SHAREPOINT - EXCHANGE - SAP - ORACLE - IIS - WARE VIEW - ETC. BIG-IP LTM REDUCES CPU AND MEMORY LOAD ON THE HOST SERVERS BY OFFLOADING NETWORK-RELATED PROCESSES SERVERS PERFORMANCE DATABASE THE SOLUTION F5 minimizes application-specific network risks when moving to a virtualized platform by providing solutions that are optimized for specific applications and accompanied by comprehensive, predefined profiles within BIG-IP devices. Often deployed in traditional IT infrastructures, these predefined profiles are just as beneficial in virtualized environments. Use of these application templates can lead to a 90 percent reduction in manual user inputs, thereby reducing configuration time and data-entry errors. One of the predefined application profiles provided in BIG-IP LTM is a ware View (virtual desktop) profile. Providing a best-practice configuration model, this template incorporates experience in designing optimal ware View systems and dramatically simplifies installation. Additionally, organizations that rely heavily on web-based applications can take advantage of F5 BIG-IP WebAccelerator. BIG-IP WebAccelerator speeds up access and decreases web page load time. It also drastically reduces the CPU load on web application servers in virtualized environments through a combination of intelligent caching, connection pipelining, and exploitation of browser behavior.
16 Cloud Computing Deliver reliable web-based services THE CHALLENGE Cloud computing presents a significant opportunity for increased data center agility and cost savings. Along with the vsphere platform, ware vcloud Director simplifies the process for cloud providers or large IT organizations to offer self-service cloud computing. However there are fundamental challenges to ensuring that these cloud services offer the same security, availability, and performance as traditional on-premise computing. Key benefits Keep control over authentication locally while running applications in the cloud Ensure consistently high security, performance, and availability for virtual infrastructure Deliver added network capacity on demand Improve WAN performance between data centers
17 LAN CLIENTS CLIENTS CLIENTS CLIENTS ROUTER BIG-IP ASM BIG-IP GTM INTERNAL CLOUD EXTERNAL THIRD-PARTY CLOUD BIG-IP LTM BIG-IP LTM ON-PREMISE COMPUTERS CLOUD BURSTING AND MIGRATION CAPABILITIES THE SOLUTION F5 provides a number of solutions that enable organizations to leverage public or private cloud solutions from ware easily, securely, and with maximum application performance and availability. BIG-IP GTM is used to direct traffic between multiple data centers in cases where the application may be running in more than one location at times (for example, cloud bursting). BIG-IP LTM enables organizations to retain authentication and authorization locally, when running applications in the cloud, by redirecting incoming authentication requests to the home data center. BIG-IP LTM Virtual Edition enables clouds to provide full BIG-IP LTM services as virtual machines, which can be provisioned and configured on-demand. BIG-IP Application Security Manager can provide application firewall security to a wide variety of applications running in the cloud.
18 Improved Manageability Integrate BIG-IP with the ware vsphere Client THE CHALLENGE ware vcenter Server provides a powerful central point of control for virtualization management. Many organizations are seeking to use the associated vsphere Client as a single management control point for virtual machines. They need to reduce administration complexity and provide basic task automation. This enables their administrators to be more productive and efficient. Key benefits Streamline common networking tasks Eliminate manual synchronization between consoles Simplify BIG-IP LTM configuration for new s
19 BIG-IP MANAGEMENT CONSOLE PLUG-IN LINUX VCENTER SERVER VSPHERE CLIENT ware ESX BIG-IP LTM THE SOLUTION The F5 Management Plug-In for ware vsphere allows virtualization administrators to more easily manage their BIG-IP Application Delivery Networking policies as they relate to ware-virtualized applications. The F5 Management Plug-In for ware vsphere eliminates manual synchronization of information between BIG-IP devices and the vsphere consoles. It also helps automate common networking tasks involved in routine maintenance and administration. Finally it can automatically apply Application Delivery Networking policies to newly provisioned s, and ease the process of de-provisioning s. Overall, these features simplify and automate many of the networking tasks common to s, thereby improving the agility of the overall infrastructure.
