12 Challenges in managing servers Upgrading & patching servers are risky, timeconsuming and error-prone Inconsistent server configuration results in reduced application quality, frequent outages, extended down-time, and failed IT audits and compliance Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity support requires overbuilding with dedicated purpose servers 12

13 Introducing Provisioning Server Simplifies & speeds PS management and migrations Streams vdisk images to diskless, baremetal servers Saves datacenter storage, power and administrative time. Dynamic provisioning maximizes server utilization Stateless Intel Architecture Servers Provisioning Stream Provisioning Server vdisk Images PS v4.0 PS v4.5 PS License Server PS Streaming Server SAN Storage Provisioning Server 13

17 Provisioning Server Benefits Powers a Dynamic datacenter stateless server hardware and server workloads with the ability to efficiently combine them on demand Facilitates delivery of ANY workload (Windows or Linux) to ANY server (physical or virtual) Provides green deployment of diskless servers Enables a single managed disk image streamed to multiple servers 17

18 HUGE Total Cost of Ownership Savings Time to install OS and OS configurations to 100 servers Time Improvement Traditional Methods* 240 hours Using BladeLogic* 40 hours 83.3% Using Provisioning Server 4 minutes 99.8% Source: 18

21 Provisioning Server for Desktops The XP operating system and software vdisk is streamed to the desktop. Workstation is powered on. 21

22 Provisioning Server for Desktops Workstation image delivery and management are centralized.. PC s processing power is harnessed for an uncompromised user experience 22

23 Provisioning Server for Desktops Provisioning the workstation with the Vista vdisk is quickly accomplished by rebooting. 23

25 How the Provisioning Server Works Step 1 Administration Process Take snapshot of physical drives and store them as virtual disks (vdisks) in an image repository (NAS or SAN) Sector By Sector Map of D1 to VD1 Auto discover and load available computers into database by MAC address Computers can have different NICs, chipsets, media cards Store personality by MAC address Administrator assigns vdisk image to computer based on MAC address 2007 Systems, Inc. All rights reserved, Company Confidential 25

26 How the Provisioning Server Works Step 2 Runtime Execution During boot phase, PC boots from network image rather than physical image DHCP and TFTP Other Methods e.g. Static IP The Streaming Service authenticates, locates and delivers the OS and application stack from repository. Supports Most Popular OS Windows, Linux, VM Standard And Private Image Modes 2007 Systems, Inc. All rights reserved, Company Confidential 26

32 Software Streaming Address Shortcomings Bare-metal Provisioning Servers are stateless; no hard-disk drive required. OS/application image is streamed simultaneously to all servers in a silo upon boot without hogging bandwidth. Significant advantages in upgrades of CPS or Windows Server OS. Streamlined Image Management Only one virtual OS/application image is required per silo. Patching and updating is simplified. Testing, rollout, and if necessary rollback are completed effectively and quickly. Server-build consistency is assured. On-Demand Repurposing of Servers Any server in the farm can be reprovision with a new/different OS/application image on reboot. Whole silos can be re-purposed to perform different functions. Disaster Recovery Assurance All of the virtual images in a server farm can be backed-up and stored at a remote location. No prior provisioning of a remote location will be necessary. 32
