11 vsphere Data Protection Overview New backup and recovery tool for vsphere VDP Replaces vsphere Data Recovery Based on EMC Avamar VMware vsphere Included with vsphere* Benefits DATA DEDUPLICATED AND STORED ON VDP APPLIANCE Use less disk space with deduplication Simple setup and management Proven technology 11 *All editions and kits with the exception of Essentials

12 12 What s New in vsphere 5.1? SECURITY

13 vshield Endpoint Overview Secure your VMs with offloaded antivirus and anti-malware (AV) solutions without the need of agents Included with vsphere* Benefits Simplified AV administration Higher consolidation ratios by preventing the possibility of AV storms Improved performance 13 *All editions and kits with the exception of Essentials

14 Shell Updates ESXi Shell Updates No more shared root Users with admin privileges functionally equivalent to root Users with admin privileges automatically given shell access Improved logging & auditing Events logged under individual user accounts DCUI logins show actual user info instead of dcui user Terminate idle shell sessions with ESXiShellInteractiveTimeOut 14

15 15 What s New in vsphere 5.1? AUTOMATION

16 Auto Deploy (introduced in vsphere 5.0) Overview vcenter Server with Auto Deploy Image Profiles Host Profiles Deploy and patch vsphere hosts in minutes using a new on the fly model Coordination with vsphere Host Profiles Benefits vsphere vsphere vsphere Rapid provisioning: initial deployment and patching of hosts Centralized host and image management Reduce manual deployment and patch processes 16

17 Auto Deploy New Features New Auto Deploy Features in vsphere 5.1 Stateless Caching fall back to the cached image Stateful Install One time boot from Auto Deploy server Auto Deploy mode configured through Host Profile Option 1: Stateless Auto Deploy Option 2: Stateless Caching (NEW) Option 3: Stateful Installs (NEW) 17

18 Auto Deploy Stateless Caching Image and configuration saved to local disk Requirements: Dedicated boot device (1GB) Auto Deploy Server Image Profile PXE Benefits: Host able to boot if PXE boot fails Image Profile Notes: ESXi Image on disk is the same as regular install image Can choose to overwrite or preserve existing VMFS Image Profile 18

19 Auto Deploy Stateful Installs Use Auto Deploy to provision new vsphere hosts One time use of Auto Deploy All future reboots from local disk Still need to patch every individual host Auto Deploy Server Image Profile PXE BOOT Image Profile Image Profile 19

20 Host Profile Updates in vsphere 5.1 Host Profiles Additional parameters added Stateless configurations more consistent with stateful Examples: - VMdirect Path I/O Configuration - PCI Passthrough Settings - /etc/hosts file settings - Local host entries - Password PAM Configuration - Password strength/complexity - PAM Login Map - Authentication path policy - Virtual Machine Swapfile Location - Mem.HostLocalSwapDir 20

21 21 What s New in vsphere 5.1? COMPUTE

22 Virtual Machine Updates Description Benefits 64 vcpus per VM Virtual GPU (vgpu) Virtualize large workloads with confidence Run high performance 3D graphics apps in VMs / VDI Continue to leverage latest CPU HW acceleration features to deliver highest performance Improved CPU virtualization 64 vcpus 1TB RAM Hardware 3D graphics support 22
