What is VMware vSphere ?

An Infrasture virtualization suite that does the following; Provides Virtualization, management, resource optimization, application availability, and operational automation capabilities Aggregates physical hardware resources and provides virtual resources to the datacenter

Virtualized

Migrating Virtual Machines

Data Protection
Backing up virtual machines requires strategies that

make use of virtualization architecture to perform highly efficient backups with minimal impact on other virtual machines unlike when backing up physical servers. VMware uses Changed Block Tracking (CBT) and Data Deduplication methods to carry out backups in order to avoid unnecessary duplicating already existing file blocks

Access & Authentication Control


According to best practise each user should have

only the necessary permissions they need and VMware vCenter allows flexible assignment of permissions and roles Access control can be achieved through configuring firewalls, using vShield products (like vShield Egde, vShield Endpoint, vShield App and vShield Zones) to secure the edge of the virtual datacentre, protect virtual applications from network-based threats and streamline anti-virus protection

Resource Management & Monitoring


Resource contention: since VMs simultaneously use resources of a

physical server they should know how to respond when virtual machines compete for resources and this brings the need for resource pools

Resource pool allows administration to divide and allocate resources to virtual machines and other resource pools

Although the VMkernel works proactively to avoid resource

contention, maximising performance requires both analysis and ongoing monitoring. When the physical memory on a host is less than the sum of memory allocated to all virtual machines overcommitment occurs. Memory is reclaimed when overcommitment occurs though the following techniques:

Economize use of physical memory pages Ballooning mechanism Memory compression Page virtual machine out to disk

Performance can be monitored using some tools in the guest

operating system and vCenter Server

High Availability (HA)


High Availability (HA) is and instance in which the system is

continuously operational for a desirably long time High availability for vCenter Server is primarily implemented using VMware vCenter server heartbeat and vSphere High Availability. vSphere HA is used to find out if an ESXi host is isolated or crashed.
When a machine stops sending heartbeats, the guest Operating system is restarted and when an application fails , the host on which the application resides is restarted.

Fault Tolerance (FT) is a higher level of availability from HA

and it allows users to protect machines from failure. For best performance it is recommended that ESXi host monitoring is enabled

Scalability
A cluster is a collection of ESXi hosts and associated

virtual machines with vSphere HA and vSphere DRS. A DRS cluster is managed by VMware vCenter Server When a host is added to the DRS cluster the hosts resources become part of the clusters resources

Patch Management
The VMware vSphere will go through some hardware and software changes in terms of configuration or software updates over time. These changes are implemented in an orderly and systematic way through the Update manager. This makes management easier by reducing the diversity of systems in the environment and also it eliminates security breaches that exploit older vulnerabilities

Installing vSphere Components


ESXi Hardware requirements: 64 bit processor (AMD, INTEL) 2 GB minimum RAM One or more internet controllers Disk storage vCenter Server Requirements: Two 64 bit CPUs / one 64-bit dual core processor 2 .0 GHz or faster AMD or Intel processor 4GB RAM Gigabit connection (10/100 Ethernet adapter minimum)
