VMWare VSphere 5 – Cloud Infrastructure Made Easy

July 19th, 2011    Posted in cloud hosting
 

The latest version in vSphere hypervisor is vSphere 5 which has been released along with a host of additional technologies that can aid in building “infrastructure clouds”.  Vmware added more power to this virtualization platform by unveiling a virtual appliance tailored for small-to-midsize businesses. This new release is all set to provide better application performance and availability for all business-critical applications while automating the management of an increasingly broad pool of datacenter resources.

SUPER NEW FEATURES

Vsphere 5 comes with nearly 200 new and enhanced capabilities and thus has given stiff competition to Vmware’s lead rivals Citrix, Microsoft, and Red Hat. The most striking features of this new release is it has a cloud friendly licensing scheme, smarter than ever management tools and support for virtual machines (VMs) that are up to four times more powerful than previous versions with up to 1 terabyte of memory and 32 virtual CPU. These virtual machines can process in excess of 1 million I/O operations per second and hence are more than sufficient for even the most resource intensive applications.

FLAGSHIP FEATURES:

The task of virtualizing any business-critical applications would be easy as ABC. There has been significant enhancements in the platform’s unique datacenter resource management capabilities, delivering intelligent policy management to support an automated approach towards managing the datacenter resources. Users would only have to formulate the policies and define the parameters and Vsphere 5 can take care of the rest. The new Auto-Deploy, Profile-Driven Storage and Storage DRS features can actually save up to a full year of administrator time for a user with a 1,000-VM environment.

CLOUD FRIENDLY FEATURES:

The VMware vSphere® 5 and the cloud infrastructure suite brings forth an expansive package of technologies that are capable of providing the automation, self-service and security capabilities users are looking for. The VMware Vshield 5 has an adaptive, software-based security model designed for virtual and cloud environments and thus takes care of security, control and compliance issues. The VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager 5 will actually allow users to get double number of protected applications for the same cost while supporting heterogeneous storage configurations in the primary and backup sites. The VMware vCloud Director 1.5 will substantially help in cutting the time needed for provisioning new servers.

It seems so far that the SMBs have been most benefitted from VSphere 5 release and the most number of customers for VMware have emerged from this segment. VMware has indeed come up with all-in-one solutions for SMBs of all sizes.  Going by what is currently available in the market, VMware delivers the most comprehensive portfolio of virtualization and cloud computing offerings for businesses of all sizes. Their diverse range of products aimed at giving the best virtualization platform experience include VMware vSphere Kits for SMBs, VMware Go, VMware Go Pro and VMware vSphere Hypervisor .

XenServer 6.0 Beta Out Now

July 17th, 2011    Posted in web server news
 

XenServer 6.0 Beta is here for anyone looking for cross-platform management tools compatible with VMware vSphere and Microsoft System Center. This new release is primarily based on the the Xen 4.1 hypervisor. This new virtualization platform comes packed with powerful features and there is a very strong possibility that more would be added soon.

The XenServer 6.0 Beta Advantage:

  • A very simplistic infrastructure requirement
  • The default network stack is now the Open vSwitch (OVS)
  • This version offers Xendesktop enhancements and improvements like HDX enhancements, optimized virtual desktop user experience and GPU pass-through.
  • Increased host RAM support which is now 1 TB
  • Platform improvements and enhancements like “Rolling Pool Upgrade” wizard, NFS support for High availability, increased VM vCPU, vRAM levels and NIC bonding improvements.
  • The 6.0 release offers the flexibility of assigning a physical GPU to a virtual machine thus enabling applications running in the guest to leverage GPU instructions
  • The Self Service and Cloud Building Tools help users to create a private cloud self service environment.
  • The new release allows management of XenServers and VMs with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) which is slated for release in 2012.
  • Unlike the previous version this one allows Guest OS support for many more operating systems other than Ubuntu.
  • The new version has moved from the Windows-based “StorageLink Gateway” to “integrated StorageLink”. The greatest advantage is that site Recovery is no longer based on StorageLink.  This enables DR support for virtually any iSCSI or Hardware HBA storage repository scenario where the underlying array includes replication features.
  • An improved support for hardware-assisted (SR-IOV) network performance optimizations, particularly for use with the NetScaler VPX and SDX products.

This version of XenServer would be using Open vSwitch for distributed virtual networking as well as network interface card-bonding support and jumbo frames support. W e have seen significant improvements in the XenServer product line over the last few years but it still remains to be seen whether this new release actually proves to be better in all aspects.
