Agenda Overview Journey Summary

Overview

What is Virtual Machine Manager? An end-to-end infrastructure provisioning and management solution for virtualized datacenters Enables you to: Manage full lifecycle of virtual machines Provision and manage your datacenter fabric Deploy and service multi-tier applications Create cloud abstraction and offer self-service

Releases VMM 2012 R2 Update Rollups 2016

Compute Storage Networking Fabric Compute: Bare metal to cluster; Trusted, Untrusted, Perimeter hosts; Hyper-V, ESX; host patching Storage: SAN; NAS; SMB; Storage Spaces Network: Isolation; Load balancing; MAC pools, IP pools

Partners

Virtual Machines Azure VMs VM lifecycle Full lifecycle management Live Migration –VM, Storage VMware to Hyper-V migration Supports up to 25,000 VMs on 1,000 hosts Basic management of Azure and AWS VMs

Intelligent Placement Matching VM requirements to host resources Easy-to-understand star rating Hyper-V as well as ESX hosts Dynamic optimization and power optimization

Applications Template-based multi-tier app deployment Drag-and-drop interface for template authoring Scale-in and scale-out Custom scripts on VM and app deployment Support for Microsoft Web Deploy applications and Microsoft SQL Server data-tier applications

Self-service Self-service consumption Enabled via SPF & WAP Service Provider Foundation (SPF) is a REST API layer on top of VMM Windows Azure Pack (WAP) is a web portal on top of SPF with a look and feel of classic Azure portal

Role-based access control Delegated administration Granular permissions for self-service users

Cluster How does this work? Cluster Functional Level = 2012 R2 WS 2016 WS 2016 WS 2016 WS 2016 Cluster Functional Level= 2016 Seamless Zero downtime for workloads Effortless VMM orchestrates the entire workflow

Demo Upgrade a WS 2012 R2 host cluster

2. Create tamper-proof virtual machines

Shielded VMs Virtual machines whose data, at rest or in transit, cannot be snooped or tampered by malware and datacenter admins

Pre-requisites Passwords/RDP Certificates etc. VHDx Shielding Data File Wizard Shielding Data File (. pdk ) Template Disk Wizard Signed VHDx Shielded VM VMM 2016

Guarded Host How does this work? WS 2016 HGS Host Guardian Service components Attestation Service : evaluates the validity of the hosts Key Protection Service : provides the key to start shielded VMs Host requests attestation User creates a shielded VM using signed VHDx and shielding data file 1 2 Attestation succeeds 3 Release key for the shielded VM 6 Attestation Certificate sent to the host 4 Host requests key for unlocking shielded VM 5 Key to unlock the shielded VM delivered to the host 7

3. Provision cost-effective clusters

Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) Use industry standard servers with local storage to build highly available and scalable storage

Disaggregated Large scale deployments Flexibility to scale compute and storage scale independently S2D deployments Hyper-converged Disaggregated Hyper-converged Smaller scale deployments Simplicity as compute and storage scale in lock-step

Disaggregated Hosts with local storage VMM 2016 Storage Pool Storage Space Virtual Disks Scale-Out File Server Cluster Shared Volumes C:\ClusterStorage Software Storage Bus Storage Tiers Performance & Capacity

Hyper-converged Hosts with local storage VMM 2016 Storage Pool Storage Space Virtual Disks Virtual Machines Cluster Shared Volumes C:\ClusterStorage Software Storage Bus Storage Tiers Performance & Capacity

Demo Create a hyper-converged cluster

Journey trivia #3 What is the highest waterfall in the world? Angel Falls, Venezuela 3,230 feet

4. Maintain quality of service for VM storage

Storage quality of service (QoS) Set the quality of service (min or max IOPS, max bandwidth) for virtual machine storage so that applications receive the performance they require

QoS policies Policies are associated to storage arrays and applied to VHDs Multiple policies can be associated to a single array A single VHD can pick only one policy Storage Array 1 Storage Array 2 VHD1 VHD2 VHD3 VHD4 QoS Policy 1 QoS Policy 2 QoS Policy 3

Demo Create a storage QoS policy

5. Replicate volumes synchronously

Storage Replica Synchronously replicate storage volumes and avoid the need for expensive external storage-based replication

Synchronous replication SAN Hyper-converged cluster VMM 2016

Synchronous replication SAN Microsoft Azure Site Recovery Communication & Orchestration VMM 2016 Hyper-converged cluster Storage agnostic synchronous replication VMM 2016

6. Deploy software-defined networking

Software-defined networking (SDN) Abstraction of the underlying physical network accomplished by virtualizing the network

Network controllerUse a centralized, programmable point of automation to manage, configure, and troubleshoot virtual and physical network infrastructure Software load balancer Balance tenant traffic using software load balancers instead of expensive hardware load balancers Gateway Use pool-based gateways to achieve higher availability with fewer virtual machines for providing cross-network connectivity SDN components
