Neue Möglichkeiten
  • Ein (V)Server wird zu einer Datei
  • schnelle Bereitstellung neuer Systeme
  • einfaches Backup
  • schnelle Restore Möglichkeit
  • verschieben auf andere Hardware
  • erweiten der Serverfarm in Sekunden
  • Ein (HW) Server wird zur Ressource
  • Erweiterung von Speicher ohne Ausfallzeit
  • hohe Auslastung bestehender Ressource
  • Mehrere Server bieten Ausfallsicherheit

10
Virtualization Benefits for IT
  • Reduce Cost
  • Lower server, SAN, network and infrastructure
    costs
  • Reduce management overhead
  • Lower power, facilities and deployment costs
  • Increase Server Utilization
  • Increase average server utilization
  • Gets new applications up and running faster in
    the data center
  • Move quickly from one virtual server machine to
    another
  • Improve I.T. Agility
  • Ensure Business Continuity
  • Boost developer Productivity
  • Reduce service deployment times

11
Why Do Customers Choose XenServer?
  • Ease of Use

The Power of Xen
  • Paravirtualization is the key to high
    performance
  • Xen is designed to utilize the virtualization
    capabilities of Intel VT and AMD-V enabled
    processors
  • Xen Benefits from open source community
    innovation
  • Rapid rate of innovation
  • Leverages other open source projects

Xen-based virtualization delivers the highest
performance for next generation silicon based
virtualization
17
Xen Engine of Innovation
  • The Open standard
  • Always supports the latest hardware assisted
    virtualization
  • Work closely with OS vendors
  • Leverage Security community

Platform Architecture
  • CPU and Memory access through Xen Engine
  • Network and Storage I/O through Domain 0
  • Standard Linux device drivers
  • Down to the hardware
  • Xen is a thin layer on top of the hardware
  • Only 50k lines of code (0.25MB in size)

Bechtel
One of the worlds largest and most successful
global infrastructure construction firm chooses
XenEnterprise
  • 400 servers in production
  • 30 of physical servers are virtualized
  • Motivation for virtualization is increasing
    server utilization and rapid provision and
    decommissioning of servers.
  • Began looking into XenServer to achieve higher
    levels of performance
  • Replace all other virtualization products with
    XenServer Enterprise Edition before the end of
    2007

KBC Clearing
Leading Belgium/Netherlands based European
financial services institution
Leverages virtualization for a critical data
center relocation
XenSource XenEnterprise outperforms VMware ESX.
When we did a performance test on both Linux and
Windows, XenSource came out best. Rob de Wit,
KBC Clearing
  • Evaluated VMware and Citrix XenServer
  • Goal was to consolidate servers and increase
    utilization
  • 40 physical servers consolidated to 4 physical
    servers
  • Performance, ease of use, affordability and
    industry support were key criteria in selecting
    XenServer.

Rollins Corp
Diversified company Expands virtualization with
XenEnterprise
  • Windows Test and Dev requirements for rapid
    provisioning of servers
  • Existing user of VMware Server
  • Initially purchased 4 XenServer licenses
    currently running 12 VMs across his 4 dual
    opteron servers
  • Added 21 more server licenses in April

Decision points for XenSource were price,
performance, IBM server proven status and upgrade
path for higher end product, XenEnterprise.
